From the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, MD
Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello all and welcome to Raw is Zack-icho!!! I'm trying out new names, don't judge. Anyway folks Raw is live from MY hometown of Baltimore tonight so I'm hoping the crowd does a good job. As much as it pains me to not be their live, I have two good excuses! First, my leg doesn't like being a leg after my ACL surgery so I would have a tough time getting to the arena. Second, and more importantly, I get to hang out here with you fine people for the Live Coverage! Let's get things kicked off with the question of the week! Which scenario would you most like to see at Night of Champions: Seth drops the US title, Seth drops the WWE Title, Seth drops both titles, Seth retains all?
Monday Night Raw Results
The show kicks off with United States and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins!
Seth: Reality check Baltimore, I am special. And I'm not just regular special, I'm really special like once in a generation, once in a lifetime special. Hear me out, alright? Before me it was just a pipe dream that someone would have the guts to cash in the MITB contract at WrestleMania. Now before me every single one of you really believed Brock Lesnar was invincible. And before me every single person in the WWE universe was clamoring for someone to knock John Cena off the top of the WWE mountain. Oh yeah now you're on my side. That's exactly what I did when I beat John Cena at Summerslam, to become the first man to hold the WWE and United States title at the same time. That's greatness, I know this city isn't familiar with greatness, but that's greatness. A statue was created to honor my greatness! A statue that inspired a face-painted FREAK to....*we want Sting chants* You and I both. Because two weeks ago Sting stole my statue. And more importantly than that he had the audacity to put his hands on my title. Now Sting, be careful what you wish for because at Night of Champions you have the chance to cement your legacy. On the flipside I have the chance to crush your legacy. That's exactly what I'm going to do, I'm going to make sure you never get your hands on my WWE title ever again. That's not all, last week it became apparent to me at Night of Champions ever single championship *boring chants* I'm the champ guys I could go all night long! I have to defend my United States championship as well, because of this information Mr. Hustle Loyalty and Respect, he politic-ed his way into a match at Night of Champions. At first I was, admittedly, upset. I searched and searched for a solution and then it hit me like a bolt of lightning. Guys, I'm Seth Rollins. I'm Seth FREAKING Rollins. This has been my year at Night of Champion it'll be my night. Because two future Hall of Famers are gunning for me in the same night. I'm going to own them. Just like I own all of you, just like I own this ring. I'm going to own Sting, I'm going to own John Cena. If it's the last thing I do I'm going to get my statue back. That statue you guys, it wasn't just stolen from me it was stolen from every one of you. You deserve for it to be on the stage, you deserve for it to be by the announce table, backstage with the Authority as a reminder that I am the man.
Sting on the titantron- Seth, your statue it doesn't belong ringside or in a staging area, it belongs right here, with me. You know Seth, you are the man! You're the man! Without a statue! It's here. I'm here. Come and get it. I'm taking good care of it *dusts it off* Come and get it!
Sheamus' music hits and he makes his way to the ring.
Sheamus- Seth, what's the matter you look a little agitated. *You look stupid chants* Is it because you're worried about your two matches?
Seth- I'm not worried! I'm not worried about Sting, or Cena, or YOU! But I do have a statue to rescue!
Sheamus- A statue?! Do you realize how stupid you sound?
Seth- Do you realize how stupid you look?
Sheamus- I DO NOT LOOK STUPID!
Seth- They think you pretty stupid, I happen to think you look like Ronald McDonald with a bad haircut.
Sheamus- Ay! Don't you dare bring my family into this!
Seth- What is your point?!
Sheamus- My point is right here! *Hold up MITB contract* I could make my point tonight. I could make my point on Smackdown, or I could make my point at Night of Champions. Because Sethboy, if you somehow win both your matches. You might have a third against me...
Stephanie is backstage on her phone when Seth Rollins walks in.
Seth- That was crazy, did you see what happened out there?
Steph- Yes I did.
Seth- Is Triple H here? Is he here because, you know first Sting then Sheamus. Just, is he here? Does he have a plan?
Steph- I've been thinking about this and I have a plan. Ok?
Seth- You're right, you're right. I don't want them thinking that the two matches is going to get in my head, it's not. It's just, is Triple H here? I'm hoping he has a good plan with this situation. He's the cerebral assassin, this is kind of his thing. So is he around? *The camera pans out and Hunter is right behind him* Oh hey! Hahaha! We were just talking about you!
Triple H- You don't think Steph can handle this by herself?
Seth- No no that's not it at all! I just think all three of us together could come up with a plan as a family.
Triple H- Is that what you thought? Ok, well it doesn't matter the situation. The situation is irrelevant because you can handle it, you're the man.
Seth- Yeah, you're absolutely right. I'm the man, so I should get back to focusing on what I need to focus on. Finding the statue, going and getting the statue from Sting.
Triple H- Exactly, and don't worry about Sheamus tonight because he is going to have his hands full in a match with Randy Orton tonight. Yeah and maybe don't worry about the statue so much. I get it, Sting is here and trying to get under your skin but I think you need to focus on what's important. What's important is that you have two matches at Night of Champions, which you need to be ready for. So tonight you'll compete twice, to prepare for Night of Champions.
Seth- What?! Yup, yup, ok.
Triple H- That's what you need to do, you need to be ready. Which is why the first match is champion vs. champion. Seth Rollins will go 1 on 1 with the Intercontinental Champion, Ryback. And the second match will be more of a champion vs. challengers match and that will be where Seth Rollins will team with the new Tag Team Champions The New Day vs. The Prime Time Players and their partner...John Cena.
Steph- *Seth looks at her* Don't look at me, I was going to say to go after Sting, but you were right, Hunter had a much better plan!
Triple H- I like my plan, I like it because you get to go out there and show everyone you're Seth Rollins and YOU are the man.
Seth- I got this! I am the man! I AM THE MAN!

Summer Rae is in the ring and we see a recap from last week.
Summer- This week has been the most horrific week of my life. And at the center of it all has been a man, that does not deserve the scorn he has been getting. He is the true victim and I owe this man an apology. So Rusev, please, please come and talk to me.
Rusev makes his way to the ring.
Summer- Rusev, you have been my guiding light. You've been my beacon of hope. My lighthouse to guide me through troubled waters and I owe you so much. You gave me the strength to get in the best shape of my life for you, you gave me the courage so I could be on the cover of this months Ironman magazine. That's all because of you, because you gave me the courage. That's why I feel so terrible. Dolph has been trying to seduce me for weeks, and when he asked me to come into his locker room with him last week I should have known better. My innocence got the best of me. To see Dolph in the shower like that, with the water glistening off his tight body, and the glistening in his eyes. It was all too much and I was so weak. I was so weak! *Boring chants* I let Dolph kiss me! And I'm so sorry! I'm sorry! I'm sorry Rusev! I betrayed you! I will never forgive myself for it! It meant nothing! *Rusev grabs her cheek*
Rusev- You betrayed me. But I accept your apology.
Summer- Ruru! Thank you so much!
Rusev- See Summer, my sweet sumbissive Summer! It's not your fault, I never thought it was your fault. It was that pathetic, pale, hairless American Dolph Ziggler! I am not the victim here, it's you. You are not the only victim, we have another by the name of Lana. She was also fed his lies and seduced by the skinny American. At the end of the day they tell me she isn't here because of her broken wrist. She isn't here because of her broken heart. Lana I want to tell you this, we've had our difference in the past but I would never have cheated or done anything like what Dolph Ziggler did to you.
Ziggler's music hits and he makes his way to out.
Dolph- Yeah yeah yeah, I know you'd never make the way Lana feel the way I do. She told me that last night. But most importantly no one is buying into your lies. All the things you do to stick a wedge between Lana and I, everyone here knows your lying and most importantly Lana knows you're lying.
Rusev- Lana is at home with a broken wrist and you're here interrupting me! Instead of being home with her bringing her flowers.
Dolph- I did check on her, I was with her last night. She told me to bring you a message. Here. *Dolph Superkicks Rusev*
