A new episode of Monday Night Raw is currently being broadcast on the USA Network. Here’s what has happened so far:
11:00 – Mick Foley invites Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns out for a contract signing. Strowman enters, signs the contract, and immediately tells Foley to beat it. Foley tells Strowman he must respect him, but Strowman says that Foley is not the man he used to be, and now he’s pathetic. Foley flips out, telling Strowman to respect him or else.
Roman Reigns enters, and he and Strowman brawl outside of the ring. After spearing Strowman, Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring to sign the contract. But he doesn’t get the chance because Strowman, having fully recovered, throws Reigns into the ropes so hard that the top rope completely snaps. Strowman starts to walk away, assuming Reigns is done for, but Roman just barely pulls himself up and signs the contract.
10:53 – After the match, Joe says in an interview that he came to Raw to hurt people, and this match serves as a reminder of that fact. Suddenly, Sami Zayn’s theme plays. Samoa Joe prepares for a fight, but Zayn suddenly ambushes him from behind. The two of them brawl and must be torn apart by WWE officials.
10:41 – Samoa Joe defeats Cesaro.
10:39 – Sasha Banks and Bayley recover from their match earlier tonight. Banks tells Bayley that she’s going to be at ringside this Sunday during Bayley’s match against Charlotte. Stephanie McMahon enters and suggests this is because Banks doesn’t think Bayley can defend herself. McMahon decides to put Banks in a match against Nia Jax at Fastlane.
10:28 – TJ Perkins and Jack Gallagher defeat Neville and Tony Nese. Gallagher forces Nese to tap out; Neville is already leaving the ring while this is going on, and he clearly had no interest in helping out his partner.
10:22 – Backstage, Neville and Tony Nese coordinate ahead of their tag team match against TJ Perkins and Jack Gallagher. Nese says he’s going to be looking out only for himself.
10:17 – Big Show defeats The Shining Stars in a two-on-one handicap match.
9:54 – Seth Rollins enters, walking to the ring with a crutch. He’s interviewed by Corey Graves, and he says that the rehab has been pretty intense and he’ll hopefully be back soon. Rollins says that he’s been asking himself whether he deserved what happened to him because of all of the people he betrayed in the past. He says he lost sight of the “redesign, rebuild, reclaim” slogan. When asked if he’s going to be back in time for WrestleMania, Seth Rollins says it doesn’t look that way.
Triple H enters. He tells Seth Rollins that no matter what anyone tells him, he will not be at WrestleMania. Triple H also says that he gave Seth Rollins everything he wanted, but then Rollins bit the hand that fed him, so what did he think was going to happen? Seth Rollins is now just another washed up, beat up superstar who’s worthless, Triple H says, adding that he did, in fact, use Rollins, but so what? If Rollins shows up at WrestleMania, Triple H promises that this will be the last thing he ever does in a WWE ring.
As Triple H begins to leave, Seth Rollins defiantly tells him that he will be at WrestleMania, and if this is the last thing he ever does, it’ll be the last thing Triple H ever does, too.
9:45 – Sheamus defeats Titus O’Neil. O’Neil attacks Sheamus before the match even starts, but that hardly works out for him, as Sheamus goes on to defeat O’Neil immediately.
9:33 – Enzo Amore and Big Cass defeat Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.
9:27 – Braun Strowman enters Mick Foley’s office. He says he wants a contract for his match against Roman Reigns at Fastlane because he’s worried that Reigns is going to back out.
9:16 – Charlotte and Nia Jax defeat Sasha Banks and Bayley.
9:02 – Charlotte enters. She says that she still can’t get over what happened last week because she really thought Bayley was going to do the right thing and hand the title back.
Bayley enters. She holds up the title triumphantly and says that whether Charlotte or Stephanie McMahon likes it, she knows she made the right decision by keeping the title. Sasha Banks enters and defends Bayley. Charlotte says that Sasha is continuously taking Bayley’s spotlight.
Charlotte, Dana Brooke, Bayley and Sasha Banks are expected to have a tag team match, but Charlotte reveals that Dana Brooke isn’t her partner. Instead, Nia Jax is.
8:59 – Backstage, Samoa Joe mocks Mick Foley, who says his time as Raw general manager hasn’t been going very well. Foley says that Samoa Joe is Triple H’s puppet, though Joe insists he is not. Foley tells Joe that he has a match against Cesaro for later tonight.
8:47 – Akira Tozawa defeats Noam Dar. After the match ends, Brian Kendrick attacks Tozawa from behind.
8:41 – Mick Foley enters Stephanie McMahon’s office. She says that he seems to get weaker every year, and he has fallen so far from grace that he is a shell of himself. So she says that she wants to apologize…for making him general manager of Raw in the first place.
8:39 – Backstage, Samoa Joe encounters Cesaro and Sheamus. Cesaro says that Samoa Joe is as arrogant and back-stabbing as always, and Sheamus says that he wants to kick Joe’s head off.
8:38 – Backstage, Enzo Amore talks to Big Cass about how excited he is to win the Tag Team Championship. Big Cass isn’t quite as confident that they’re going to win, but he thinks they can if they stay focused.
8:21 – The New Day defeat Jinder Mahal and Rusev.
8:18 – The New Day enter. They talk about wanting to provide the WWE universe with New Day ice cream before doing a bit parodying the end of last night’s Oscars, during which the wrong winner was announced.
8:00 – Goldberg enters. He says that last week, Kevin Owens did what he does best: talk. Goldberg says he isn’t going to do that, but he promises the crowd that he will become Universal Champion at Fastlane this Sunday.
Kevin Owens enters. Owens says that he, too, is in a good mood, because now he can tell Goldberg what he thinks face to face. He runs through all of the WWE superstars who he has crushed in the past, including Chris Jericho, concluding by saying that no matter how loudly the crowd chants his name, Goldberg is next in the evolution of Kevin Owens as Universal Champion.
Goldberg is angered by Kevin Owens’ speech, and so he says that they should not wait until Sunday and they should have a fight right now. At first Owens agrees before remembering that he’s in Green Bay; Green Bay doesn’t deserve to see him fight, he says. He says that at Fastlane, the “Goldberg” chant will die for good before dropping the mic and walking off.
