Hello ladies and gentlemen! Welcome back to WNW's Live Raw Coverage! Tonight will start a new chapter for WWE after Hell in a Cell. We had, what seems to be, a lot of blow off matches last night. We will see what will be next for Kevin Owens, Ryback, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Kane and a few others. Tonight is assumed to be John Cena-less, and no part timers are advertised so hopefully this generation's wrestlers will get a place in the spotlight. Question of the Week: How did you feel about Alberto Del Rio returning to defeat John Cena for the United States Championship?
WWE Raw Results
The Authority opens the show.
Steph- Last night the WWE Universe saw battle of epic proportions. Battles were fought and legends were made.
HHH- At Hell in a Cell right from the return of Alberto Del Rio when he defeated John Cena to become the new United States Champion, last night was the emergence of the next generation of superstars.
Steph- And the man who is leading that next generation of superstars, the man who had quite possibly the best victory of the night beating the demon Kane, he is simply known as The Man, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins!
Seth's music hits and a very happy Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.
Steph- Seth you've been WWE Champion for a long time now, ever since you cashed in your Money in the Bank Contract at WrestleMania.
HHH- That's right we didn't make it easy for you either, we lined em up. We lined them all up, legend after legend. Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Sting, Kane! And you're STILL champion! You proved us right.
Steph- That's right Seth, we had to make sure our expectations were in line. To make sure you were the right person to lead the next generation. Finding a way to win like my husband did throughout his career.
HHH- That's right and not only did you win, you stuck by your beliefs and you beat Kane, getting him fired from the Authority. You made the Authority stronger, you made the WWE stronger. It brings a tear to my eye to say we're proud of you.
Steph- We're so proud of you.
Seth- *hugs both Steph and Hunter* You guys, you don't even know....I'm speechless! Last night at Hell in a Cell I defeated my biggest Demon when when beat Kane! Ousted him as Director of Operations...we gotta take a second here because I would have never had this opportunity to show the world how great I really am if it weren't for two visionaries Triple H and Stephanie McMahon! The Authority!
Steph- Seth you are without a doubt the greatest superstar of your generation and a future Hall of Famer but you've left us in a bit of an awkward situation, a pickle if you will.
HHH- An awkward situation as everyone here knows, you cleaned out the WWE, you've beaten everyone there is to beat. Now we have to let people earn the right, the privilege to fight you. That's exactly what's going to happen last night. The winners of the matches will battle, the winner of those matches will face off in a fatal four way match. The winner of that match wins the the right to face you for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. To LOSE to you.
Seth- That sounds great, that sounds like it's best for--*Roman Reigns music hits and he makes his way through the crowd*
Roman- THis whole thing has me feeling sick. Yall are really out here saying you belong in the Hall of Fame? What!? After tonight you're looking at the number 1 contender, and I'm taking that championship. Believe. That.
Steph- Well then, let the games begin!
New Day comes out.
Kofi- Hey yo E, you know what the biggest difference is between Roman Reigns and New Day?
Big E- His greasy hair is booty? His style is not on Fleek?
Kofi- Those are big, but the biggest difference is that we are champions! And he is not!
Both- OHH NOOOO
Kofi- You see we the New Day are putting things in their proper places, the dudleyz, our unicorn brother Xavier Woods in our hearts, and our opponents in the ground! You might as well call me Harry Potter because I'm about to make so magic!

For 25 years, the Undertaker has walked among the darkness and the light. He had no equal. They all feared him. Grown men would tremble at the sound of his name. But last night the Apocalypse showed it's face. Desperation, vengeance and fear rode with him and carried out the soul of the mighty Undertaker. Can you feel that? That wicked feeling is in the air tonight. Can you feel it!? Last night was war. Red horsemen of the Apocalypse. I just wanted to make something very, very clear here tonight. Roman Reigns, understand that one day you and I we will dance again, but not again until I am properly revitalized. That's why last night the destruction of the Undertaker has become my resurrection.

You've become addicted, that's why right now as I am speaking I am feasting on the soul of the Undertaker and I want more. I have to have more, I need more, I won't stop until there is nothing left of the Undertaker. Nothing but bones and a distant memory as I ascend. Hahaha. Right now somewhere the Undertaker's soul is being ripped to shreds, desecrated piece by piece, bit by bloody bit. So tonight I wanted to ask something of you.
