Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. There is a recap video of last week’s episode of Raw. Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring. After all of his attacks and after all of his hype, you would think that Samoa Joe would have been ready. When it was time to put up or shut up, Joe was silenced. That is why he is still champion. It isn’t because he is better than Joe, he was fighting for a purpose. He was fighting for Dean Ambrose. Roman says he has a message for everyone. If you mess with any member of the Shield, you mess with all of us. That was last week and it is this week. Jason Jordan interrupts and makes his way to the ring.

Jason says when he watched Roman’s match last week, he got goosebumps. For the first time, he felt like he was part of something meaningful. Roman was right, when you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us. Jason says on behalf of his partner Seth Rollins, you proved that this is your yard. Jason wants to thank Roman. Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. Seth says he appreciates Jason, but he has a lot to learn. Last week, you learned about teamwork. This week, you have to work on your timing. You are stepping on Roman’s moment.

Jason says this is everyone’s moment. Jason says they all had issues with Samoa Joe and Roman took care of it. Jason says they took care of the Bar. They are all champions and they run the show.

Roman says that Jason teams with Seth and Roman says that he is The Guy. Jason says they might not be the Shield, but they are pretty good. They might be the most dominant three man group in WWE. Finn Balor, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson make their way to the stage.

Finn says that Jason is excited to be part of something big, but are you really part of the most dominant three man group in WWE? Finn says he was running with Gallows and Anderson for ten years before you knew that Kurt Angle was your dad. Karl says that they have run with Finn for a long time and you can see it on the WWE Network.

Luke says they knew it was time to stand alone when Finn showed up. They won the tag titles. Finn was the first Universal Champion. Karl says they knew that they would get back together and take over that place. Finn says that day was last Monday. Finn says they are excited too because 2018 is the Year of Balor Club. Jason says he is happy to be part of the Champions’ Club.

Karl asks if that is a cute new version of the Shield. Finn says he does not see the Lunatic Fringe. He sees the Architect and the Big Dog. He sees . . . Luke throws out a NERD. Jason slaps Gallows and Rollins holds Jordan back while Balor and Anderson hold back Gallows.

Kurt Angle makes his way to the stage and he mentions what is on the show tonight, but he just found his main event. Kurt wants to find out who would win a match between these teams so it will be a six man tag match tonight.

Roman Reigns, Jason Jordan, and Seth Rollins stand around in the back and talk as we go to commercial.

RAW GM Kurt Angle opens the show to hype the Tag Team Title and Intercontinental Titles being on the line. Before he can announce Roman’s challenger though, Jason Jordan’s music interrupts him and the young upstart heads to the ring garnering himself a lot of heat. He wants Roman for the title despite his knee being taped up and brings up past opponents that he’s held his own against in the ring. This brought about the appearance of the Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns who said that he has no interest in facing Jason but rather wants his hands on Samoa Joe. However, Jason verbally attacks Roman for being exactly what the company wants though Roman fires back by saying that he’s earned his keep. Samoa Joe is next and gives Roman five seconds to withdraw his challenge because he ‘knows’ he can’t beat Roman. Jason gets involved in the conversation again, stating that he is tough unlike Joe who only “talks” tough and attacks people from behind. Therefore, Jordan challenges Joe to face him right now. Roman backs him up though… so Jordan nails the champion with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex! Angle ushers his son out of the ring but Roman says Joe can wait til later. As for Jason, we’re doing it right NOW.

MATCH #1: Roman Reigns vs. Jason Jordan for the Intercontinental Championship.

Samoa Joe is watching the match from the top of the entrance ramp. Roman is relentless in his early assault of Jordan even whipping him all the way to the outside of the ring. Roman takes his challenger’s head to the mat and then whips him hard into the barricade as well as the steel steps. When they get back in, Jason tries to mount a comeback but Roman clocks him with right hands and a clothesline to send him back outside the ring again. Roman nails him with the Drive-By and scores the first near fall. Roman uses a chinlock to wear his opponent down but gets drilled into the corner and then back and forth between the opposite buckles. Roman goes shoulder-first into the ringpost and crumbles to the outside.

After the break, Jordan has Roman in an armbar, who eventually fights out with right hands and a couple of massive clotheslines. Roman slugs away on Jordan in the corner and nails him with a running big boot but only gets a two count. Jason manages to counter an attempt at the Superman Punch with a dropkick for a two count. Roman fights back and sends Jordan outside again but another attempt at the Superman Punch is countered when Jordan drives him into the ring steps on two occasions. This gets him a very near fall. Jorda counters a THIRD Superman Punch with a back suplex but yes, it’s another two count.

After a second commercial break, Roman nails Jordan with right hands and scores a DDT for a two count. He then goes to a half-crab on Jordan’s injured knee but he refuses to tap out and cradles Roman for a two count. THIS TIME, the Superman Punch from Roman connects but he only gets a near fall. Roman now goes for the Spear but Jordan kicks him in the head and hits rolling Northern Lights Suplexes (while selling the knee very well) for a near fall. Jordan goes for something but Roman counters and hits the Superman Punch/Spear combo for the big win.

WINNER via PINFALL: Roman Reigns (20:36)

After the match, Samoa Joe hits the ring and immediately puts Roman in the Coquina Clutch but Jason comes up from behind and nails the Samoan with a back suplex! Joe wants to go back in but the referee stops him. After that, Roman decides to hit Jordan with the Superman Punch to send him out of the ring.

Backstage in the locker room Roman Reigns tells his boys he did his part and now it is up to Dean and Seth.

Seth says the New Day isn’t here to ruin things.  Seth says after they win tonight, they will all . . .

Dean asks Seth if the match is tonight.  Dean says he is kidding and he has been visualizing knocking out more of Cesaro’s teeth and they will be champions again.

We go to commercial.

MATCH #6: The Bar vs. Ambrose & Rollins for the RAW Tag Team Championship

Ambrose starts off with Cesaro but that doesn’t last long as Sheamus is tagged in and Dean-O hammers away at both of them. He goes for the tag to Rollins but Cesaro pulls him off the apron at the last second, which allows Sheamus to take over. The Bar use some basic double-teaming to take over with Sheamus putting Dean on the top rope. He flings over and tags Rollins though, who takes Sheamus down with a sling blade for a two count. Sheamus takes an UGLY clothesline to the floor but they both avoid a plancha. Sheamus drives Rollins into the post though and we take a break.

Sheamus maintains control over Rollins choking him against the ropes and then deprives the fans of counting along with him before tagging in Cesaro, who manages a two count. Sheamus now wears down Rollins with an overhead wristlock but Seth fights out and plants him with a DDT. Cesaro cuts him off from making a tag and goes to work on the arm. Again, Rollins goes for a tag but this time Cesaro boots Ambrose in the face to cut it off. The Bar executes a press slam/uppercut combo for two. Rollins is finally able to make the tag and Ambrose is a house of fire. Ambrose takes down Cesaro, hits a seated dropkick on Sheamus but then runs right into a Cesaro uppercut. Ambrose rolls through a cross-body for a two count before countering another move with a cradle for a near fall. He goes for Dirty Deeds but Sheamus breaks it up. Dean then ducks the Brogue Kick and rolls up Cesaro for another two count. Sheamus finally manages to get a shot in on Ambrose to turn the momentum but Dean is able to rana Cesaro into the corner and gets the tag. Rollins immediately comes in with the superplex/falcon arrow combo on Sheamus but Cesaro breaks it up at the last second. Cesaro tags himself in and goes for the Neutralizer. Rollins counters but Cesaro counters that, goes for it again but Rollins counters hits the knee to the face for a two count… broken up by Sheamus. After that, Sheamus unleashes a relentless assault on Rollins… and we have a DQ finish. Sheaus is elated that his plan has worked.

BUT WAIT!

Kurt Angle comes out and says that this match is not over and will continue as a No DQ match. The champs slowly back up towards the ring and are taken out with stereo dives by the Shield! Cesaro is taken into the crowd while Sheamus is sent into the steps. Back in the ring, Dean hits a clothesline and Rollins gets a top-rope splash but it only gets two. Suddenly, Samoa Joe is out thereand he kills both guys in quick succession. Roman Reigns runs down to go after Joe and takes out Cesaro on the way but one Brogue Kick from Sheamus puts Ambrose down for the count.

It’s Shield night as WWE isn’t exactly being subtle with this one. Last week we saw the trio standing in the same room and basically saying they were getting back together, though the question is how long they’ll be able to keep this going. Your trivia for the night: the team debuted in Indianapolis, split in Indianapolis and seems to be reuniting in Indianapolis. I don’t know if WWE did that on purpose but well done if they did. Let’s get to it.

Reunited! For weeks, fans have wondered if The Shield would get back together. The Miz and his Miztourage have been making light on how destructive the Shield was. On last week’s Raw, all three members of The Shield had contact with Miz, Miztourage and The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus). At the end of the show, the WWE Universe saw Roman Reigns sitting alone backstage and both Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose walk up. Can The Shield put aside past differences and unite as one unite? Here’s how WWE.com says it all went down.

They’re Bravo-Alpha-Charlie-Kilo. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns didn’t just reunite in earnest for the first time in three years to crash “Miz TV,” they showed they haven’t lost a step, despite the lengthy layoff.

While The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus and Curtis Axel (Bo Dallas was recuperating) crowed over beating the brothers-in-arms down last week (The Bar and Axel received Mizzies for their assistance), The Hounds of Justice showed that Miz might have been off the mark when he insisted their time had passed them by. In fact, the three former WWE Champions responded to The A-Lister’s boasts by circling the ring and administering a beatdown straight out of The Shield’s greatest hits, laying out all four Superstars and sealing the reunion with a ring-shaking Triple Powerbomb to The Awesome One and a fist-bump over his prone body.

And, as it turns out, The Miz might have gotten even more than he bargained for, as Raw General Manager Kurt Angle decided to give the Intercontinental Champion the spotlight he craved by placing him and The Bar in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match against The Shield at WWE TLC. As Much as Miz seemed as though he couldn’t believe it, The Olympic Hero assured him: It’s true.

Braun Strowman’s monstrous tear through the roster continued at the expense of Matt Hardy, who had the unfortunate task of facing The Monster Among Men one-on-one, but The Gift of Destruction went from hunter to hunted in the blink of an eye when The Shield came knocking.

Hardy turned in a gritty, turn-back-the-clock effort against Strowman that saw him land a Twist of Fate, only Strowman to kick out at one, retorting with two chokeslams and a Running Powerslam for the win. After the match, Strowman looked primed to put Hardy through the LED screen a la Curt Hawkins, but he was quickly interrupted by The Hounds of Justice, who met him on the stage, overwhelmed the monster and plunged him through the announce table with an incredible Triple Powerbomb

But The Gift of Destruction’s fate will remain entwined with The Shield’s for the foreseeable future. Not only did Kurt Angle sanction Strowman vs. Reigns in a Steel Cage next week, but Ambrose’s offhanded remark that The Shield could take out four or five opponents at once were noted by The Miz, who recruited The Monster Among Men to be that very same fourth man at WWE TLC.

THE PASSING OF THE TORCH! As the WWE Universe still tries to get over the passing of the torch between John Cena & Roman Reigns, The Miz has issues with Roman being called “The Guy” and “The Big Dog”. He invites Reigns onto ‘MizTV’ to get answers. What went down during the interview and will Roman Reigns hold on to the torch that was just bestowed upon him. Check out what happened when “The Big Dog” and the “A-lister” came face to face. Here is a full recap of what happened per WWE.com!

Roman Reigns beat John Cena last night at WWE No Mercy and announced on “Miz TV” that he’s looking for a fight with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, but The Miz wasn’t interested in talking about that. In fact, Miz quickly turned the focus of their much-hyped interview toward himself, reminding Reigns that Miz was the only one of the two with a title to his name after The Big Dog called him an “idiot” minutes into their sit-down.

Miz didn’t take that kindly, of course, and if the most head-turning of his subsequent insults was a schoolyard boast that The Miztourage could have taken The Shield back in the day, it was his insistence on waving his title in Reigns’ face that came back to haunt him when The Big Dog offered to fight him on the spot.

The Awesome One attempted to back out with an impressive array of excuses (“I have a suit on!”), though Raw General Manager Kurt Angle hit the scene to sanction a match tonight between the two, as well as a tag team match between the rest of The Miztourage and the makeshift squad of Matt Hardy & Jason Jordan.

Could The Miztourage have beaten The Shield? They certainly proved to be the difference maker when Roman Reigns took on The Miz by his lonesome, picking at The Big Dog behind the referee’s back and allowing the Intercontinental Champion to make a profound statement at Reigns’ expense — even if he didn’t necessarily walk away with the win.

In fact, Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel softened Reigns up for The Miz each time The Big Dog pulled into the lead, while Miz himself focused his efforts on Reigns’ banged-up lower back. A double Drive-By took out Dallas & Axel and finally left Miz open to a match-ending Spear, but The Miztourage returned moments later to utterly decimate Reigns with steel chairs and feed him into two Skull-Crushing Finales, the second on top of a chair. Miz kept the assault going for minutes on end, but the final insult came when the three A-listers mocked Reigns with the classic Shield fist bump to conclude a brutal display that, only a few years ago, you would have had to see to believe.

RESPECT HAS BEEN EARNED! As the rivalry between Roman Reigns and John Cena reached a boiling point, the historical WrestleMania worthy match would soon prove who was the best at trash talking and bringing the fight. The rivalry between the two started as a back and forth war of words on Twitter. It soon escalated when the two met in the ring for the first time when John Cena, who is a free agent, showed up on Monday Night Raw. Roman Reigns would soon prove that he can trash talk and let his in-ring ability speak for itself. Reigns silenced Cena with a Spear to earn the long lost respect of John Cena, but in the end, respect was earned on both sides. Roman remains THE BIG DOG of his yard. Here is how it all unfolded courtesy of WWE.com.

If you were scoring the John Cena-Roman Reigns rivalry on how the two talked against each other, you’d be hard-pressed to argue that Cena didn’t get the win. But talk only gets you so far, and it was Reigns who walked out of WWE No Mercyas the victor of a WrestleMania-caliber match between WWE’s two most commanding and divisive Superstars.

Cena had said earlier that he thought No Mercy would be a “cakewalk,” and he appeared all too happy to play to the WWE Universe rather than take Reigns seriously, even offering to leave the match entirely when they voiced their displeasure for both Superstars. That earned him a less-than-favorable response from Reigns, who tossed Cena into the steel steps, stalked him around the ring and delivered a pinpoint Drive-By when Cena attempted to stagger to his feet.

The 16-time World Champion didn’t just get stuck in the blocks; he seemed completely unprepared for Reigns’ answers to his maneuvers — that trip into the steps brought him to his knees, and Reigns wiped the ear-to-ear grin off Cena’s face with a jaw-shattering right hand as he attempted to hit his notorious “Five Moves of Doom.” Yet, as he always does, Cena did eventually rally to hit his big maneuvers, including the Five-Knuckle Shuffle, an STF and a reversal of the Superman Punch into an Attitude Adjustment.\

Neither put Reigns down (he shook off the Shuffle, reversed the STF into a one-armed powerbomb, and kicked out of the AA at two), but both Superstars quickly learned that each of them were as advertised as they began to unload their respective match-enders. Cena kicked out of a Superman Punch and olé’d Reigns full-speed into the turnbuckle when The Big Dog attempted a Spear, but Reigns also kicked out of the near-bulletproof second-rope AA.

It was at this point that Cena tapped into his old reserves of ruthless aggression, but Reigns’ persistence didn’t just surprise him, it nearly broke him. First, Reigns reversed Cena’s attempt of an AA through the announce table by spearing Cena through the desk that had been meant for him, and then his kick-out of two consecutive AA’s unnerved Cena so much that the typically stoic Superstar went nose-to-nose with referee John Cone over the count. Ultimately, Reigns had one more ounce in the tank left than Cena did, as the 16-time World Champion walked straight into a quick-strike Superman Punch-Spear combo out of nowhere moments later, leading to the most precious three-count of Reigns’ young career.

It was what happened afterward, though, that may truly define this contest for years to come. Cena raised Reigns’ hand in a gesture of respect and received a nod of his own from The Big Dog, yet The Cenation Leader remained in the ring while Reigns made his exit. Once Roman had left, Cena rose to his feet and bowed to the audience to the tune of a standing ovation and a “Thank You Cena” chant. So now, he’s got Reigns’ respect. He may not have wanted it, but he’s got it. The WWE Universe’s too, though it’s fair to say he may have always had that after all.

After the match, Cena stands tall as we go to replays. Cena stands tall and helps Jordan to his feet for a show of respect. Cena hits the corner to pose but the music interrupts and out comes Roman Reigns. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and Reigns is in the ring with Cena. Some fans are chanting Cena’s name. Reigns gets booed as he says he has one question for Cena – if he’s as good as he says he is, why does it take a 16-time champ over 20 minutes to beat a rookie? Reigns says if Cena is as good as he says he is, he would’ve defeated Jordan right away. Reigns goes on and gets the “what!?” treatment from the crowd. Reigns calls Cena a lying, fake ass little bitch. Cena calls Reigns a Debbie Downer and says he’s disgusted by Reigns’ whole face. Cena says Reigns is doing the worst thing a guy like him could try and do right now – use his brain. Cena goes on and points out how Reigns came out with his zipper down. Reigns says he actually busted the zipper because he’s a big dog. Cena says he was just looking for Reigns’ balls but he has none. Cena talks about how Reigns is going to lose at No Mercy.

Cena says the only question Reigns will have after No Mercy is how did this happen. Cena says Reigns is a conceited, know-it-all golden boy that needs to be taught about respect. Cena gives props to guys like Jordan, Chad Gable and The Miz for putting in work each week. He respects that. Cena says he does not respect Reigns. Cena doesn’t respect how Reigns walks down here and calls Cena a fake bitch. The only person living a lie here is Reigns. Cena goes on and wonders if Reigns can see what’s going on here, or does he need to beat some sense into Reigns. Reigns says now they’re talking. He tells Cena to do it, bring it. Fans cheer and a “yes!” chant starts up. Reigns tells Cena to do it right now. Reigns asks if fans want to see Cena beat his ass and they do.

Reigns taunts Cena and says this is Cena’s moment to finally back up his big mouth. Just like Reigns thought, Cena is all talk and that’s why he doesn’t respect Cena. Reigns drops the mic and leaves the ring as his music hits. Cena stares him down with a smirk on his face.

Cena says he saw Angle at SummerSlam and Angle asked him if he would like to come to RAW.

Joe takes the mic and says he has a very strong opinion about this whole situation.
