Hello lads and lasses in the WNW Universe! Welcome back to Monday Night Raw Live Streaming Results! My name is Zack Krasney, Crown Prince of WNW and I'll be your host with the most! Tonight is Halloween and WWE is going to do something extra cheesy I'm sure! We are also fresh off the heels of a successful Hell in a Cell PPV last night. Spoilers: it was very good!
Question of the Night: What should be next for Charlotte and the Women's Championship?
Monday Night Raw
Goldberg's music hits and the big man makes his way to the ring to address the crowd.
Goldberg- OK! Brock Lesnar! 3 weeks--
Heyman- Ladies and Gentlemen! My name is Paul Heyman and my client is not happy about you chanting the name Goldberg. I will tell you on the record, ladies and gentlemen, you're pissing me off. Now, sir, I have all the respect for you and for your abilities and I'm sure you know that I am not a physical threat to you. Which is why I am somewhat comfortable of honoring my client's instructions to actually step into the ring with you. Because surely Mr. Goldberg, you don't think I came here without significant back up do you? If I may, I'm probably going to make you very happy. I'm going to make all these people happy. I'm going to make your family happy. My client is not just a beast, he is an impatient beast. You sir are 1 and 0 against my client, quiet a streak Goldberg but my client conquers streaks, just ask the Undertaker. Which is why my client has decided not to wait until Sunday November 20th. He's not going to wait for Survivor Series because my client wants to face you face to face RIGHT HERE! So ladies and gentlemen, and you too Bill, I give you the beast!
After several seconds it's clear Brock isn't coming. Heyman laughs to himself.
Paul- Gotcha! Look at the look the face of your son! So disappointed he doesn't get to see his dad fight! It won't compare to the face that he makes when you're victimized by Brock Lesn---Wait wait I'm an advocate!
Goldberg backs Paul into the corner but then Rusev's music hits and he gets in the ring.
Rusev- Who do you think you are? I know his name! Don't chant it! You think you're some kind of a superhero, but I don't think you have it anymore. We all hear you crying about children, you are no superhero because there is no such thing! Now you haven't been in this ring in a very long time. You had moves back in WCW, the spear and the Jackhammer but they required strength and looking at you I don't think you have it anymore. Do you have the heart? When you get beat down, to get back up and keep fighting? I don't think you have that either. It's easy to talk trash to someone who isn't here, and no Brock Lesnar isn't here! I see you shaking in fear of Rusev the Super Athlete! You know what I do to weak people? CRUSH!!
Rusev hits Goldberg with a right hand but Goldberg isn't phased. He blocks another right hand and hits a Jackhammer. He stands up and starts to walk away but then turns and hits a spear on Heyman!
Enzo vs. Gallows in a Trick or Street Fight
Enzo and Cass come out as Buzz and Woody- My name is Enzo Amore and I am a certified G and a bonafide stud and you can't teach that. And this right here is Big Cass and he's 7 feet tall and you can't teach that. Badaboom realist guys in the room! How you doin! Last night at Hell in a Cell, Andy and Big Gal hit me with the magic killer, well hocus pocus I'm back! Big Cass knows you got a friend in me. We know we're not handing out candy but if we did we'd give you lollipops because you suck. I'm gonna give you a beating to infinity and beyond. Cass it's your turn let me pull your string.
Cass- There's a snake in my boot! Big Gal and Andy I wanna see if you have the malted milk balls to go toe to toe with Enzo. Unless you only have a little candy corn. Tonight Enzo will prove there is only one word to describe you! S-A-W-F-T!
Gallows starts off with a quick hit and throws Enzo outside the ring. Gallows talks trash to Cass and gets hit with a kick from Enzo. Enzo shoves Gallows face into a bowl of floating apples and hits him with a skeleton.
We return and Gallows misses a boot but still manages to take Enzo down. He puts him on a set up table and shoves pumpkin guts in Enzo's face. Gallows grabs a kendo stick and blasts Enzo with it over and over. Enzo dodges shot from the kendo stick and starts chucking pumpkins at Gallows but Gallows gets through it and hits him with the stick again. Enzo hits a dropkick to the knee and grabs a pie. Anderson hops up on the apron and Enzo blasts him with the pie. Cass runs in and hits a big boot to knock Anderson off the side and through a table. Enzo with a low blow on Gallows. Cass puts a pumpkin over the head of Gallows and Enzo hits the DDG for the win!
Brian Kendrick vs. TJ Perkins for the Cruiserweight Championship
Brian- Last night at Hell in a Cell I reminded everyone that nice guys like TJ Perkins always finish last. That wouldn't be very nice of me to call everyone here a sucker, but don't think I needed you to let me win. I don't need anyone to let me win but I knew I could play on your sympathies. Weak minded people can get played when you tug on their heart strings. I just needed to remind you of all the favors I did for you and all the things I did for you. When I faked that injury it was the opening I needed, and here we stand! Tonight you get your rematch and I can tell you're determined, but I hope you have a plan to win because you can bet I have a plan on how to keep it.
Perkins is right on top of Kendrick as soon as the handshake is over. Perkins drops Kendrick immediately with the modified GTS. Kendrick kicks out at 2 and slides to the ropes to get Perkins off of him as we head to commercial.
We return and both men are down. Kendrick misses with two clothesline and TJ plants Kendrick and hits a springboard dropkick. Double knees to the gut of Kendrick! 2! Perkins locks in the kneebar! Kendrick makes it to the ropes. Slam from TJ and he goes to the top rope but Kendrick knocks him down onto his private bits. Kenrick tries a superplex but it's blocked. Perkins knocks him down and leaps onto Kendrick and hurricaranas both men over the top rope! The both crash to the floor below. They both go to get back in the ring but then Kendrick stops and gets himself counted out.
Winner: TJ Perkins by count out
Perkins is furious and attacks Kendrick as he's walking out. Perkins locks in the knee bar and won't let it go until the refs pull him off.
Braun Strowman approaches Mick Foley and tells him he wants to be part of Team Raw at Survivor Series. Mick tells him he can't just bully his way into what he wants. Tonight there will be a battle royal for a spot on Team Raw, if he wants competition this is his best shot!
Mick- Last night Raw had a helluva night. A new Cruiserweight Champion, a triple main event, and the first ever Women's Main Event. Everyone is so proud except for Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens. While everything they did was technically legal, it left a bad taste in my mouth.
Kevin Owens music hits and he and Jericho make their way out.
Owens- We left a bad taste in your mouth? You mind telling me what we did that was so wrong? Let me guess, I walked out champion and not your #1 Draft pick. Maybe that my best friend here outsmarted you. Did that upset you Mick? I know what it is. It's the fact that last night I am the one who made history by stealing the show in the main event and becoming the first man to successfully defend the Universal Championship inside Hell in a Cell!
Chris- That's right Mick Pumpkin. You should be thanking us because last night team Chris and Kevin showed what a real team can do. We showed why we should anchor your team at Survivor Series.
Mick- If this were any other show coming up we'd be talking about a very different situation, but yeah I need you both on Team Raw.
Owens- What'd you say? Did you hear that Chris? You just said you need us. You're right! What you have here are the top 2 guys on Raw! That's killing you isn't it Mick? You're jealous aren't you, Mick? Because in my first Hell in a Cell match I walked out a winner. You made name in them for being a giant loser. You lost FOUR Hell in a Cell. That last one you lost to Triple H. Where did that take place? Right here in Hartford! The dump that is Hartford.
Mick- You know why I have a problem with you? Because you have the talent to walk out a winner on your own! You're happy you walked out a winner? You could've walked out a legend!! You think 18 years from now the WWE Network will show you, Chris, twirling your key?
Chris- I mean, maybe. Last night I had ...the key of Jericho! Lock it in maaaaaaaaaan.
Mick- You think this is a joke? You think I like needing you? I learned to check my ego at the door a long time ago? You want to brag that Stephanie wanted both? She didn't! Steph wanted you, Kevin. Not you, Chris! Steph was furious! I had to stop her from going down last night and firing you on the spot! I had to talk her into letting you on Team Raw. But I need another guy, a guy I can trust...THE Guy!
Roman Reigns music hits and he makes his way to the ring.
Roman- Why you so mad boys? Mad to see me? Mick I'd like to thank you for the vote of confidence. Happy Halloween. I like your shirt Mick, you're out here hanging out with Spongebob and Patrick. You even stand like him.
Jericho- You're not even wearing a costume ROMAN!
Roman- I was gonna dress up as a stupid idiot but they didn't have any more Jericho costumes.
Jericho- *gasp* Alright Roman...you know what happens to people who insult me on Halloween? YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!? Did you think I was gonna put him on the list? He's not worthy. No one here is! None of you fans! No one goes on the list tonight!! You're not worthy of the list or the United States Championship. I'm from Canada and I'd make a better United States Champion than you. I'd take it away tonight if I wanted to, ya dig? No matter what these stupid idiots think, I'd take it away from you. I'm sure you're too beat up from last night to defend it. Too beat up, poor Roman!
Roman- I am beat up, I'm fine admitting that, but I'd never pass up a chance to shut your mouth!
Mick- Then it's official. Roman Reigns vs. Chris Jericho for the United States Championship, tonight!

Charlotte is carried down to the ring in epic fashion like last night.
Charlotte- Last night, I single-handedly made history when I walked into the first ever Women's Hell in a Cell and walked out the 3-time Women's Champion. The biggest mistake of Sasha's career was getting off that stretcher. There's nothing wrong with losing, you really did push me to the limit. Because Sasha, you're like every women in the WWE, playing second place. Which brings me to Survivor Series, your Queen will captain Team Raw. Nikki Bella, I know you're the captain and I'm giving you one warning. I put you on the shelf for a year, next time it will be FOREVER. Because I am the best in this business. This title says so. Are you listening, Champ? Yeah you Becky! Got it Bliss, Carmella? Mick Foley said there is potential for a weak link on my team in Bayley. Bayley, your captain would like to address you.....That means come out here!
Bayley's music hits and she comes down.
Bayley- I'm not sure why you called me out here but I'm glad you did. Last night, you and Sasha, what you did inside Hell in a Cell, gave me goosebumps. When we were in NXT, the thought of competing at that level was a dream. You guys made it a reality. I just want to say congratulation on winning the Women's Championship.
Charlotte- I would say thank you, but while you're dreaming of this, I'm acheiving all of this.
Bayley- Charlotte I've known you for years and it's clear success has gone to your head. You've become the biggest jerk and I'll never want to be a champion like you.
Charlotte- You won't be a champion like me because you'll never be me. When are you going to realize this isn't NXT anymore. When I look at you I don't know if I see a competitor or a glorified fan wearing a costume. You know, your team is only as strong as it's weakest link. So let's see how strong you are when you face our Survivor Series teammate.
Bayley- I think I speak for everyone when I say, I'm tired of listening to you talk. Let me guess, you want to put me against your little pal Dana Brooke. I don't know if you saw, but I beat her last night.
Charlotte- You think that's so funny do you Bayley? Your not going to face Dana, you're opponent is actually....
