Monday Night Raw logo 2015

Welcome to another edition of Money Night Raw as they hail from Cleveland, OH the night after the Money in the Bank PPV, which was really good. Let’s see how things play after the PPV as they head to Battleground in about 5 weeks. Let’s Get Started!!!

Good

Dusty Rhodes Tribute: Great tributes to the one and only, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, who’s one of the all-time greats. The WWE put together a really good video package and if you haven’t paid attention, he passed away last week.

Seth Rollins: Rollins started off Raw gloating on his title win and saying he didn’t need anyone including Kane, J&J Security, Stephanie or Triple H. After dissing Cleveland, LeBron James and Johnny Manziel that brought out Dean Ambrose and they fought until Ambrose got the advantage and Rollins left. After Rollins left, Ambrose stayed in the ring sitting in the steel chair he threw in the ring.

Sheamus vs. Dean Ambrose: This was a really good match as expected when it involves these two guys. Sheamus was about to leave, but Orton came out to prevent him from leaving and Ambrose rolled Sheamus up for the win. Orton attacked Sheamus after the match!!

Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler: Owens cut a great promo about John Cena and afterwards he issued an open challenge that was answered by Dolph Ziggler. This match was freakin awesome and Owens even kicked out of the Zig Zag. Check out this match because it was really good.

Kevin Owens Powerbombing Machine Gun Kelly: Pretty good performance by MGK, but Owens hitting that powerbomb on Kelly off the stage was crazy.

Roman Reigns/Bray Wyatt Promos: That segment was really good and creepy towards the end with Wyatt having a pic of Reigns playing with his daughter.

Primetime Players & Neville vs. New Day: This was a pretty good match with the crowd going crazy. With New Day losing I’m wondering what they have in store for those guys seeing they have lost two night in a row.

Brock Lesnar returns: Did you hear that crowd go crazy? The final segment started with The Authority talking about people deserving a shot at the title and naming some guys who’s not getting the opportunity. Rollins came out and cut a promo about being the best and Triple H told him the pressure is on and that’s when the music of Brock Lesnar hit, then Brock came out with Paul Heyman. Brock got in the face of Rollins to intimidate him and it scared the hell out of Rollins and he left.
Bad

R-Truth vs. King Barrett: Man, Barrett has gone downhill after winning the King of the Ring.

Randy Orton vs. Kane: Just not a fan of Kane anymore.

Miz vs. Big Show: No comment!!

Bella Twins vs. Paige: I hope all of this will lead to Charlotte coming to the main roster.

Overall Rating: 7/10- This was a pretty good edition of Monday Night Raw with several things happening with the return of Brock Lesnar and the big night from Kevin Owens. The Dusty Rhodes tributes throughout the night were well done and just show how great a person and talent he was. There were a couple of really good matches with Ziggler/Owens and Sheamus/Ambrose. Seth Rollins has become really good on the mic and it shows his confidence growing during his opening promo.

 

Top 5 Happenings from Raw:
