Monday Night Raw
Kevin Owens and best friend Chris Jericho are starting off the show!
Owens- You know if you idiots don't mind being quiet I have something important to say. See at this point there is no denying it, Mick Foley has a personal vendetta against me. Why else would he risk shorting my career by fighting Seth Rollins in Hell in a Cell.
Jericho- Quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet, quiet. I said quiet! I'm gonna tell you what's going on around here. Mick has a vendetta against you AND me. Everyone is acting like Hell in a Cell is a badge of honor, it's not it's violent and evil. The fact you're in that match is a travesty and proves Mick Foley is a stupid idiot.
KO- You're right, luckily I have more brain cells than Mick Foley. I'm smart enough to know how to keep this match from shortening my career. Years from now you'll be talking about the hell I put Seth Rollins through! You'll still be calling it the Kevin Owens show!
Jericho- I'll do you one better! The Chris and Kevin show because I should've been in that match as well! It's obvious I can beat Seth Rollins. Look at the list of Hall of Famers and greats I've beat. I beat so many greats, I can beat Seth Rollins. The reason I didn't beat Seth Rollins, bad officiating from the referee.
KO- Horrible. You know what he deserves. Do it!
Jericho- You know what happens when you do things the wrong way around here....YOU JUST MADE THE LIST!
KO- You wanna cheer for that? Cheer for this, Seth Rollins will have his swan song at Hell in a Cell and I'm going to retire him!
Rollins music hits and he walks out onto the stage.
Seth- You're gonna retire me Kev? You know Chris if you're putting anything on the list, put that scarf on there. Your crappy tattoos, your trunks sparkle-crotch. Go ahead put it on the list sparkle-crotch.
Jericho- I'm going to say this ONE TIME! I'm not sparkle-crotch! You know what Seth....
Seth- I know about the list, I'm probably on there already.
Jericho- Not yet, but you will be....
Seth- How about putting your friendship with Kevin Owens on there. He let you get pedigreed twice in a row.
KO- Chris and I are still very good friends. We know that one of us has to stay strong for the good of our team.
Seth- I get it, you stay strong and Chris stays weak.
Jericho- I am a 6-time word champion! I'm the best in the world at what I do! I can beat you any time, any place, anywhere.
Seth- I mean Denver is as good a place as any! But wait before we do that, but I gotta ask what Kevin is going to do? Are you going to send him to the back to prove you can actually beat me? Or are you going let him stay out here as the world's ugliest cheerleader.
Kevin and Chris- Staying/Going.
Chris- You're going.
Kevin- What are you talking about. You know what happened the last few weeks.
Chris- I know. And I know what you're doing, you're the champ now but I'm a 6-time champion, I know the tricks. I don't blame you, but I need to show this punk who I am. I'm Chris Jericho dammit! I can beat him!
Kevin- You know what, you're right! I'm here in spirit! *they hug*
Seth- Ok Kevin, get your hands off sparkle-crotch so I can kick his ass.

Live Via Satelite- Paul Heyman
Paul- I think the WWE Universe proves Goldberg will accept. This whole thing has really spiraled out of control. Maybe Goldberg should listen to me. The challenge was rhetorical. Goldberg isn't about to fly out to say no, he'll accept. Do you ever wonder why Brock Lesnar didn't challenge you face to face, icon to icon? It's because Brock Lesnar doesn't really think about you anymore. You're not worth the sweat off his ass. It's a fantasy Bill. Just respectfully say no. Because maybe if you say yes, then Goldberg you're going to piss Brock Lesnar off. It already pisses him off that you beat him 12 years ago and you think you can do it again. The WWE Universe obviously thinks you can do it because they chant your stupid name. That's going to piss Brock Lesnar off too. Goldberg, take my advice, don't accept tonight. You'll end up being conquered and embarrassed by BROCK LESNAR.

Braun with a WICKED running powerslam. Then a reverse chokeslam on another jobber on top of the first. Double pin for the win.
Winner: Braun Strowman

Sami is asked why he just picked a fight with Braun Strowman. He says because no one else will.
Lana is in the ring and she introduces her husband.
Rusev- In two weeks I have the opportunity to crush Roman Reigns inside of Hell in a Cell. *speaking Bulgarian*
Lana- Listen up, all of you need to understand that my husband is not only the greatest US Champion of all time. As his wife, I can tell you he has better family values than all of you.
Rusev- Roman Reigns runs around talking about his family, we know you're Samoan, great. I know you all love to sit around a campfire dipping a turkey leg in mayo and following every move you all do. You crack coconuts on your face. My family is civilized. WWE Universe meet the Rusevs! *He talks about his mother, father, brother, grandmother and dog*
Roman's music cuts him off- I do have a big family, but not my Samoan family, I mean the Roman Empire. You don't look like your handsome dad, you look more like the family dog.
Rusev- Hey! You can disrespect my family all you want but not me!
Roman- Call your cousin, call your brother, your daddy. At Hell in a Cell it's just you and me. When I'm done with you the only people you're going to call is 911.

Cass- Hate us or love it we do not care, you can take your opinion and shove it.
Enzo- You're chump change and you got hell to pay. Big Cass is gonna throw spirals at you like he's John Elway.

Michael Cole recaps Goldberg on ESPN and welcomes the man himself. Goldberg makes his old extravagent entrance with his classic music.
Goldberg- Thank you ladies and gentlemen! It's been a long time and you didn't forget! 12 years! Never say never ey? Never thought I'd be in this ring again so thank you for the humble return. What makes it so special is that my wife and son are here to see me live for the first time ever! Now back in January I got a call from 2K and WWE. I got the opportunity to promote the game. What I miss other than kicking ass is being a superhero for kids. Promoting the game gave me that chance. Kids looked me in the eye and they saw me as Goldberg. Somewhere along the way, I created a little drama here in WWE. What that did was make me think, and I thought long and hard. I think that maybe it's better left alone. Leave it in the video game. But then Brock Lesnar challenged me to a fight but didn't have the balls to do it himself. He made Paul Heyman, his fat stooge, do it for him. So I got to thinking, what to do. Maybe I have one more ass kicking left in me. I thought maybe I have one badass spear left in me. Then I thought maybe I have one left devastating Jackhammer left in me. So Brock Lesnar not only does that mean you're next, but most importantly, Brock Lesnar it means you're last!
