RAW Results September 1, 2014
From Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa
Reported on by Kendra Bunyon For Wrestling News World
Most of this commercial was without audio. There was something about Brock and Cena, and then audio came up to talk about Raw starting with Highlight Reel.
Jericho is announced, already in the ring in a black v-neck t-shirt, black vest, and sparkly black scarf. He's all smiles, but JBL is being nasty already through the "Y2J!" chants.
Jericho – Welcome to Raw Is Jericho. This is the Highlight Reel in Des Moines, Iowa. I love cheap pops. It's always great to be in front of hard working fans such as yourself. Give yourselves a hand for that. But my guest hasn't worked a day in his life. Everything he's received in the WWE on a silver platter. Tonight on the Highlight Reel, Randy...
Trip's music hits, and out comes Trip, Rollins, Kane and Orton, all in black suits. Orton with his shirt open, no tie. The same for Rollins, but wearing a black shirt. Trip in a pink shirt, and darker pink tie. Kane looks all corporate with a white shirt and red tie. Trip leads The Authority into the ring. JBL wants them all to beat up Jericho, and he will join in!
Jericho – Randy, I wasn't expecting you to bring your law firm of Sellout (Kane), Suckup (Rollins), and Schnoz (Trip).
Kane – Chris, as Director of Operations, may I remind you...
Trip – Don't worry Kane, I've got this. This is Chris Jericho! The man that never grew up, and I mean that both figuratively, and literally. (Trip holds his hand to show that Jericho is short.) I'd love nothing more than swap insults with you, but I have business to take care of.
Jericho – You're right Hunter, (into a baby voice) I'm just a wittle guy. But I'm confused as to what you're saying. You usually don't conduct important business in this ring, unless your wife is being put in jail.
Trip – You should be more concerned with thanking me than coming up with witty banter, as much as I would love that. That scarf is just a treasure trove. But...
Jericho – At least it's not a pink tie.
Trip – Yeah, it's violet nimrod, anyway... (The tie is most obviously a darker pink than his shirt, at least on my TV.) You should be thanking me for making this the most historic Highlight Reel in history.
"You tapped out!" chants at Trip.
Trip – I have been reviewing the match at SummerSlam between Cena and Brock, talking to the experts, reviewing commentary from our HOF forum last week, and have watched the match from SummerSlam over and over again. All of you can on the WWE Network for only $9.99. (fans are not happy) In watching it, I've decided it might not be what's best for business to have a rematch with Cena and Brock Lesnar. (heat) I am contemplating naming a new #1 contender for NoC.
Jericho – Hold on, you mean to tell me that you can get the WWE Network for only $9.99?
Trip – Don't know if you've heard.
Jericho – Second, even though you've granted Cena the match, you might have changed your mind? Who you gonna give the chance to now?
Orton – Chris, there's only one man in this arena who can beat Brock Lesnar. He is a 12 time World Champ, a third generation wrestler, and the most vicious Superstar in that locker room. By the way, he has earned everything he's gotten.
Kane – Or maybe it's someone who digs up a certain mask, opens the gates of hell and places a demon on The Beast Incarnate. (heat)
Rollins – Or maybe, the future has already arrived! (pop)
"Rollins!" chants for the home-state hero.
Rollins – Maybe the future has already arrived in Mr. MITB himself. I mean, I did take out Ambrose, and have become one of the most intelligent and dangerous in that locker room.
Jericho – Maybe, you should give the chance to a six time World Champ, and the first Undisputed Champion in this history of this business, Y2J, the Ayatollah of Rock & Roll...
Cena's music cuts him off, and he's out being pissed. He stomps out, around the ring, to get in on Jericho's side of the ring. Off comes the hat, as he predictably rubs his head and returns the cap to it. Mixed reaction, mostly heat for a pacing Cena.
Cena – What the hell are you talkin' about? Just because your best friends Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels doesn't think I can't beat Brock Lesnar doesn't mean I can't, doesn't mean I won't! (heat) Funny, those same two guys never thought I could beat you at WrestleMania 22, and you tapped out. You don't remember that? You can go back and watch it for $9.99. This isn't back in the day when you're kibitzing with your buddies about who you like, and who you don't. You're the COO, which means I don't care how many times you watch the footage, or how many HOFers you talk to, I invoked my rematch clause, ("What?") you authorized it. ("What?") Which means that you even think about taking it away from me, I'll think about taking you to court. Yeah. I will sue you for every single penny you have, then I'll be COO and my first order of business will be to look you straight in the eye and say Triple H, you're fired! So, how about you save yourself a headache and your job. I meant what I said, at NoC, I'm not going to beat Brock Lesnar, I'm going to beat Brock Lesnar's ass!
Trip – Wow. All I can say is, wow. This is actually where you're at with this. You're going to sue? John Cena? That's a new shirt you're wearing, hustle, loyalty, respect lawsuit. It's got a good ring to it. You're so blind that an opportunity for redemption that you're threatening lawsuits? That's exactly what I'm trying to protect you against. John, you might not understand it. You might be small-minded like the people here, but I know what my damn job is! I know what being the COO, it means doing what's best for business for the WWWE every single day! Now, I might be the first to admit that I no longer think that John Cena being WWE WHC is what's best for business any more. But I also know that John Cena's career ending at the hands of NoC is not good for business at all.
Rollins – Hunter, I say let him have the rematch, what's the worst that could happen? I mean, if an opportunity should present itself, there's always Plan B.
Orton – Seth is right, give John Cena his rematch, he's earned it, as have I. Let me have the winner one on one. After all, what happened to my rematch, way back, from WrestleMania?
Jericho – Randy, let me interject, this is still the Highlight Reel. Since WrestleMania, you've had 4,000 Title matches and succeeded a total of, never! (far off look from Jericho) As a matter of fact, the last big match I saw you have, you were Superman punched and speared by Roman Reigns!
Orton – Chris, you know as well as I do that Reigns beating me at SummerSlam means nothing, Reigns means nothing, and if he were here right now, I would drop that piece of crap where he stands. Proceed with caution, or you would not like the punchline.
A beat too long before Reigns' music hits. Out comes Reigns through the stands to the ring. Reigns into the ring. In the stands is a sign that says, "I could be at home watching Nitro!"
Reigns – Well, here I am Randy, drop me. Just like I thought, all talk. And you two don't seem happy to see me. You still upset from me breaking up your eulogy for Ambrose? No, you're pretty pissed from when I almost crushed your head with that cinder block last week, huh? That's be reminding you that we still have unfinished business. But it sounds like business is about the WWE WHC, and my name should be in that mix.
Trip – Sounds like everybody in the ring feels like they're the guy who can take on the challenge of Brock/Cena at NoC. Cena, you think you've proved your resolve, I don't know I believe it yet. Matter of fact, I don't know that you're believing it yet. I'm gonna give everybody in this ring to prove themselves tonight, let's see who stands tall. John Cena, Chris Jericho, Roman Reigns take on Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and the Demon Kane. Let's see who can earn their spot, who can prove it. I'll sit right down there, and I'll be watching.
Trip leaves with Kane, Orton and Rollins in tow. Rollins in the other side with the case, but Reigns hears him rushing with the case. Reigns takes Rollins down and grabs the case to look at it.
Rollins (off mic) – That's mine, you give that back!
Reigns throws it at Rollins, hard! Rollins takes it in the gut, and sells it.

Recap of the history between Brock and Cena going into NoC. The HOF Forum, Brock talking, Cena taking out Bray on Raw last week.
Heyman – Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and I'm the advocate for the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE WHC Brock Lesnar! (mixed) My client has authorized me to enlighten you on the term over-compensatory behavior. As any educated, authorized psychoanalyst would surely testify on my behalf, that's exactly what's been exhibited by your hero John Cena ever since he was defeated in the most one-sided, lopsided Title match in WWE history at SummerSlam by my client, Brock Lesnar. What I'm about to tell you is not conjecture, it is historical fact backed by the evidence you will witness now, at this very moment. My client, Brock Lesnar beat, victimized and conquered John Cena at SummerSlam and let me add a new adjective to that vivid and oh, so accurate description, my client Brock Lesnar emasculated John Cena at SummerSlam. Ladies and gentlemen, as any great Champion before him, John Cena has now suffered the fate of seeing the day where he has been stripped of his manhood. And what happens when a Champion suffers that fate? They stop listening to reason. Last week, John Cena didn't listen to reason with the HOF panel. Tonight, John Cena didn't listen to what was reasonably best for business by Trip in that very ring. Trip sees Cena as a cash cow that will be milked for the last time by Brock Lesnar. John Cena is so desperate to hold on to your image of him as being virile and relevant, that is why he at through The Wyatts last week and why he will be spectacular in the main event tonight. Well, bravo John Cena, because you can stack that entire locker room together and multiply it by infinity and it still doesn't equate to half of the brutality and dominance that John Cena will suffer from and be subjected to at NoC by my client, the Beast, the Champion of The World, Brock Lesnar!
King says not to believe a word Heyman says.

You know how I told you about the 318,000,000 Americans you let down by losing to Rusev at SummerSlam, well, I want to introduce you to a few. This is Richie. He's a farmer, from here, in the heartland of America. Richie bet an entire month salary on you winning at SummerSlam. And then he went on to bet double or nothing on your rematches against Rusev. Richie's savings are completely gone, and the bank is taking his family's farm. Now, let's say hello to Angelo. Angelo was an up and coming tailor who came to this beautiful country only a few years ago. Angelo has been so upset at your recent performances that he failed his citizenship test and is now being deported, back to Italy. And Jack, Jack, this is Jennifer. You used to be Jennifer's son's favorite wrestler, but you know who her son wants to be like now, after SummerSlam? Vladimir Putin!
Putin's picture up on the tron, and gets the appropriate heat.
Bo – But they can turn this all around Jack. You can turn this all around. I want everybody in this arena, and the millions watching at home to stand up, go on, stand up with me.

Rusev vs Ryder
Lana – Today in America, you celebrate Labor Day, another day off. Which means you continue to propagate the concept, educating your youth that it is okay for Americans to be entitled to be corpulent and listless.

Henry – You look me in my face, boy, because everything I'm about to say, I really mean! You think that because you're undefeated, you're invincible. I've got another thing coming for you. I just opened an international wing in the Hall of Pain! And you're going to be the first inductee!
Rusev and Lana yells smack off mic as the fans love Henry.
Trip – I don't get it, and it's one of those things, you're not going to be able to explain it to me. You've already beaten Brie Bella, I don't understand why you want to get back involved.
Steph – I'm not getting back involved, it's just, this is business. Watching Nikki tell those stories about growing up Bella, I can relate to them, they struck a chord in me.
Trip – It's just loser, let it go.
Steph – When our employees have problems, my door is always open. The thing too, about Nikki, I've been given so much, and the opportunity to give back is right in front of me. Why are you looking at me like that?

In Ring Segment
Steph out in jeans, a black top and black blazer, hair pulled back on one side, and all smiles.
Steph – As a principle owner of the WWE, and one of the most powerful females in the world, it is my duty to recognize Nikki Bella to have the courage to stand up in the face of adversity and tell her story. Nikki, would you please come out here?
Nikki out in a backless silver halter dress and seriously high heels.
Steph – Nikki, you look stunning.
Nikki – Thanks so much Steph, and thanks for the opportunity to get everything off my chest. It feels so good to have someone support me, thank you.
Steph – I understand exactly how you feel Nikki, but I had no idea how deep those family issues ran with you. I mean, this audience understands what it feels to feel weak and powerless, be in the shadow of people greater than them, people like me. Nikki, you sister just took that spotlight from you. I have to say, as a mother, as a businesswoman, and as a sister myself (a hand on Nikki's shoulder, Nikki holds Steph's hand there), I'm proud of you. Nikki, you know I have three daughters, you know I raise them with love and respect, true family values, and thank God there isn't a Brie among them. Now, Brie is self-centered, Brie is cruel, but you Nikki, you are empowered, you are exactly the face of the Divas Division that I'm looking for, that's why I'm officially granting you a match for the Divas Championship!

Brie – You know Steph, this doesn't concern you, this is between my sister and I. Tell me Nikki, is this what it's all been about? A Divas Title Match. Is this why you've been telling lies about me all night long while you've destroyed our sisterhood, our family? You've literally turned my life upside down, and for what?
Nikki – For what? For ME!
Brie – You?
Nikki – God, listen to yourself Brie! I mean it's all about Brie, all it's ever about. I see right through you. Steph sees through you too. I'm counting down the days that your goat-faced husband does too, and when he does, he will divorce you. Let's all face the facts here. I'm going to be the next Divas Champion, the Bella everyone's talking about and you'll be some memory, some little...
AJ's music and she skips down and around the ring, grabbing a mic on her way by, then into the ring. She looks all coy at Steph and waves up at her.
AJ – Hi Bosslady!
AJ – Now, I'm not sure if you and your little husband have forgotten the concept of #1 contender. See, there's one contender. And since I never got my rematch, that person is me. And I know that we can all agree that I don't play well with others. So White don't we do what's best for business and let the Bellas work on their little issues and leave the Divas Title to me!
Steph – Thank you for the education AJ, I appreciate that, always love being enlightened, but I think we have...

Paige – Thank you Stephanie. All these talk about the Divas Championship, there's only one thing missing, the bloody Divas Champion, okay?
AJ says something to Paige off mic.
Paige – What did you say to me?
Nikki – Wait a minute! You two stop, you sound like two little immature girls. Brie, look, I can make all this simple, all this go away, and you're going to like this, believe me. I'll forgive you, but under one condition, you sacrifice for me the way I've sacrificed for you all these years. Now, I don't want you to do anything you haven't already done, okay Brie. I want you to quit! Don't give me that face! Unbelievable, you're going to give me that face? You won't even quit for your flesh and blood? Why don't you go back to that hole that you and Daniel Bryan call a home, and have a bunch of little troll babies. When you get there, never, ever come back. If you truly think it's not about you, then turn around, walk away, and never come back. If you love me as a sister, you will go and never come back. Go! Leave!
Brie starts to leave.
Nikki – God, you're such a quitter! Do it, quit! Leave, go! If you love me, you will go! Leave! Go! Leave me alone!
Brie turns and pushes Nikki, who slams into Paige behind her. Both go down to the mat. Brie leaves the ring with her head held high to "YES!" "YES!" "YES!"

"NO!" "NO!" "NO!"
