Report by Zack Krasney of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
Hello everyone and welcome back to Raw here at WNW! We are building to Roadblock! The last Raw exclusive PPV until the Royal Rumble! We're also building to the Royal Rumble in the background.
Question of the Evening: For those of you that read the story going around on Twitter involving Kevin Owens. Do you feel Owens was in the right or the wrong? Should he have broke Kayfabe and been nice to the kid at ringside or was he doing his job by staying in heel mode?
Monday Night Raw

Big E- Tonight we join the immortals!
Kofi- Tonight we have the chance to break a record that has stood for 25 years.

The Rollins Report
Seth-Philly welcome to the Rollins Report! Now last week I stood in this ring and said it loud and clear, it needs to be said again and again until it goes through his thick skull. I want Triple H! Last week I laid down the guantlet. It goes through Kevin Owens. I can't isolate Kevin Owens until I get rid of his maybe best friend Chris Jericho. I have that chance Sunday at Roadblock. I'm out here because I have a question, is it Seth Rollins vs. Jericho or Rollins vs. Jericho with Kevin Owens. My guest tonight has the answers, my guest the WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens.
Owens comes out but brings his own stool and sits on the ramp.
Seth- Kev what are you doing all the way up there? Can't make it to the ring without Chris holding your hand?
Owens- Did you think I'd really come down there? This is as close as you're getting so be happy. The only reason I came out here is because I had an announcement to make.
Seth- We gotta know, how is your friendship with Jericho? It can't be good right?
Owens- As I was saying, after talking to Steph--
Seth- Kev we gotta know. I know you're memory pretty foggy after being pedigreed right in the middle of the ring here.
Owens- you don't need to worry about Chris and I's friendship. All you need to know is that Sunday Chris will have my back, and I'll have his in his match against you. Now as far as my announcement is concerned, and don't cut me off again or I'll come down there and break your face. After talking to Stephanie McMahon, after what New Day pulled, Steph decided to put them in another Tag Team Title match tonight against the team of Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. So as you can see--
Jericho's music cuts him off. Jericho comes out with the List of Jericho.
Jericho- Kevin I need to ask you a question. Are you crazy? Do you really think after what happened last week, and what you said to me two weeks ago. Do you really think I'd agree to be your tag team partner tonight or ever again?
Owens- Look maybe I should've listened to you last week, I tried to help. You gotta stop thinking about the past and think about the future. We have the chance to make history, not only by becoming Raw Tag Team Champions but we could ruin New Day's chance to become longest reigning tag team champions. Look think about it all you want, but Stephanie made the match so it'll happen one way or another. You can stay mad at me or win the tag team titles tonight.
Seth- I don't mean to interrupt but it sounds like Kevin is telling you what to do. I don't think you should tell him what to do!
Chris- You shut up you stupid idiot!
Seth- OR WHAT!? What are you gonna do sparkle crotch? You gonna put me on the list?!
Chris- You know what happens when people talk to me like that? You wanna know what happens?! Seth Rollins...YOU. I'll put you on the list alright, the disabled list.
Chris starts down to the ring but Owens catches up with him. Chris gives him a nod that they can do it together. Owens smiles and they surround Seth. Owens and Jericho beat down Rollins and throw him into the barricade. They continue beating down Rollins. Owens grabs a chair but Roman Reigns music hits and he runs to the ring!

Rusev- That's enough of your USA! Ever since I got here I have destroyed all your American heroes one by one. But last week was different, last week I took out American trash! Week after week Enzo comes out here running his mouth about how he's a certified G? Last week I realized the G is for garbage! After I took the human garbage into the hallway and I closed the door behind me, Lana and I did our business. You know what I'm saying. We took care of business. Would you like to see what I'm talking about. Yes?! Come on would you like to see it!? I must warn you, the footage is a little bit edgey.
Lana- For some of you it might be a bit sensitive, so children close your eyes. Are you ready to see what we do behind closed doors? What I do behind closed doors?
They show footage of Enzo getting destroyed by Rusev again.
Lana- Wait did all of you actually think we were going to show you what we do behind closed doors? Wow. All of you are so gullible, just like that stupid Enzo Amore. He actually thought he had a shot with me. He is pathetic like the rest of you Americans.
Rusev- My beautiful wife set the plan in motion to trap that tiny mouse. When the time was right I destroyed that little rat! I am the only man that can have Lana and if you disrespect me or her I will crush you!
Big Cass comes out- Rusev last week you gave Enzo the beating of a lifetime. Right now he's recovering with ice all over. Enzo likes to run his mouth but at least he's got the balls to back it up. Last week, you caught him with his pants down. As for tonight, this isn't a hotel room, my pants are on, and I'm not Enzo.

Mick Foley's music hits and he comes to the ring.
Mick- I just got off the phone with Daniel Bryan and after much negotiation we will be trading you to Smackdown Live for a talent of equal value. This is after all, what you want, is it not?
Sami- Well that depends, are you going to give me the match against Braun Strowman or not.
Mick- Deep down we both know you don't really want that match, so no.
Sami- That's all I need to hear, I'll sign what I need to sign.
Mick- I understand, it'll be nice to be a big fish in a small pond. But first, don't you want to know who the talent of equal value is? Who will be coming to Raw in your place? Daniel Bryan and I agreed to trade you for Eva Marie.
Sami- Eva Marie, Mick?! I'm worth 100 Eva Maries! 1000! What blows my mind is that you don't get me, you WERE me! How many people told you no, not to take the risk Mick! Now you're treating me like glass! I'm sick of making your mistake!
Mick- Isn't this what you want?!
Sami- I WANT BRAUN STROWMAN!
Mick- DO YOU!?
Sami- YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I DO!?
Mick- I want you to remember this rage! This anger! This Sunday, in your match with Braun Strowman at Roadblock! I needed to make sure a guy as nice as you, a class act could tap into that dark part of his soul! Big angry and bitter enough to on a monster like Braun. You proved to me you can!
