Hello friends! Welcome back to WNW's coverage of Monday Night Raw! Last night was TLC and it was excellent, it will be interesting to see what Raw does to show they're the more dominant brand. We're building towards Road Block which is starting to take shape.
Question of the Evening: As of right now who would you like to see win the Royal Rumble?
Monday Night Raw
Raw is kick off with THE MAN! Seth Rollins!
Seth- Austin, TX what's up! There is something that has been going on that's been bubbling under the surface and I have to get it off my chest. I want TRIPLE H! It needed to be said, life is about choices. I made the choice to put together The Shield and we changed the WWE. I dismantled the Shield and that's where I learned about the consequences of your actions. Triple H also made some choices. He chose to bet against me. He chose Kevin Owens as his new Golden Boy. Last week when I pedigreed Chris Jericho on a car that was sending a message. I'd love to call out Triple H right now. But we all know that's not how it works. So how do I get to Triple H? Very simple, I beat Kevin Owens and take the WWE Universal Championship. I can't beat Kevin Owens while Chris Jericho is still part of the equation so I have to remove that piece of the puzzle. As we saw last week, without Chris Jericho, the Kevin Owens show isn't ready for prime time.
Owens music hits.
Owens- You know Seth.
Seth- Kev! I'm glad you're here, I wanted to ask how is Chris Jericho. How is your friendship.
Owens- First off it's rude to interupt so don't do that again. You ask about Chris because of what you did last week. You asked about our friendship because we fought. Is that funny to you? What's funny to me is that you don't realize how friendships works because you don't have them. Your "brothers" in the Shield, you stabbed them in the back. Best friends make up.
Seth- Then I assume Chris has been responding to your text and calls.
Owens- You don't need to worry about our friendship and whether we talk. He was probably busy recovering from your cowardly beat down. I was busy, because it's the holidays, getting my best friend gifts. Not just a gift, because I'm such a great friend, but gifts. I got him 3 gifts.
Seth- Woah 3 gifts. I hope that's enough to compensate for all the times Chris gave you the Universal Championship.
Owens- I earned this! I'm so SICK of people saying I'm not a fighting champion! Who is a fighting champion?! Roman Reigns? The only reason I lost last week was because of you! Because of what you did to Chris! The whole match all I could do was think about my friends wellbeing! But I went out and fought! Fight Owen Fight!
Seth- If you're such a fighting champion then put it on the line right now!
Owens- Would all you fans like that? Yay! Except I beat you two weeks ago! And that idiot Mick Foley already put me in a match against Sami Zayn. But back to my gifts I got my best friend! Gift number one! Tonight Chris Jericho gets a chance to become United States Champion against Roman Reigns! Gift #2 at Roadblock you and Chris Jericho are going to have a match so Chris can get his revenge. And gift #3 it's a match you're going to have right now. Let's bring out your opponent right now.

Charlotte- Last Monday Night on Raw it dawned on me I made the biggest mistake of my life. I'm ashamed of what I did and what I said and for those of you don't remember what a cold hearted bitch I was let me remind you. Last Monday night when I lost my title, it was hard. WWE means everything to me, that title means everything to me. You know what was harder? Watching my dad walk to the ring, stand in the ring, put his arms around Sasha and raise her hand. It was like my dad was saying Sasha is the Woman, she's the athlete I wish my daughter was. All I wanted was my dad's approval. No one knows what it's like being Ric Flair's daughter in this business. No one knows that's like. I watched my dad raise someone else's hand in my hometown. I was like, I failed as his daughter. It broke my heart. I haven't seen my dad in 6 months and I asked him here tonight to give him a heart-filled apology. Dad, please come out here. *Ric comes out* Dad I'm sorry.
She hugs Ric and then smacks him hard across the face.
Charlotte- You son of a bitch! You're MY father! Who is she to dedicate her win to you! You're my father!
