WWE Raw Results - Spoilers Ahead

Post by Fernando on Tue 23 Feb 2016, 1:31 am

- Tonight's WWE RAW opens up with a look at the main event of Fastlane last night. We go to the normal RAW opening video.

- We're live from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan as the pyro goes off, just 41 days away from WrestleMania 32. Michael Cole welcomes us and he's joined by Byron Saxton and JBL.

- We see the Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award in the ring as we go to the announcers. They plug Roman Reigns vs. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H at WrestleMania 32. They also show the video of Brock Lesnar attacking Dean Ambrose outside of the arena earlier today. Cole says Ambrose was taken to a local medical facility and has undergone tests for most of the evening. Cole says Lesnar and Paul Heyman will be here later tonight.

- We go to the ring and out comes Vince McMahon to present the first-ever Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award, named after his father. Lilian Garcia introduces him.

Vince says tonight is a night we will never, ever forget because tonight we present the first Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award. Fans are giving him the "what?" treatment already. Vince starts talking about how his family has been presenting sports entertainment for more than 100 years. He calls his father a legend. Vince says it is his pleasure to introduce the recipient, Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie comes out and fans boo. Vince praises her and gets emotional, talking about how she is like his father. Fans boo louder as she had a statement prepared, even though she says she didn't know she was winning. She goes on and is interrupted by Shane McMahon to a big pop.

The crowd goes nuts as Shane makes his way to the ring and dances around. They chant "this is awesome" and "holy s--t" and more. The music stops and Vince goes to hug Shane but Shane puts his hand up and stops Vince. Fans chant Shane's name. He takes the mic and thanks the fans for the reaction. Shane says he has to handle business real quick. He says he's back because this award is the straw that broke the camel's back. He says the award is a good idea but should be given to someone deserving, and that's not Stephanie. He says hello to Stephanie but says he's sorry she's not deserving of the award. Vince tells him to be nice and says maybe they should talk backstage. Shane says Vince had his chance, they could have talked days ago. Vince always told him to man up, do things face to face and in the ring. Shane says that's what they're doing tonight. He says it's all getting done tonight. Stephanie says this is her moment, it's not about Shane. She says it's her legacy. Fans boo.

Shane says she hasn't earned it. She reminds him he hasn't been around for 6 or 7 years and has been watching from home while she and her husband ran WWE with their blood, sweat and tears. Shane asks Vince if Stephanie "knows" and apparently she doesn't. Shane informs Stephanie that she and Triple H have been running the company into the ground. Shane brings up stock, ratings, talent injuries and says it's all been under her watch. Stephanie says he's nothing more than a quitter and tells him to get the hell out of her ring. Fans boo. Shane says #1, it's her father's ring. Shane says she doesn't understand what's going on here. He asks if Vince wants to tell her now and he doesn't want to get into the details now. Shane says several years ago, Vince messed up big time and who was there to save the day? Shane. Shane says he and Vince cut a deal where Shane was able to go off and do what he wanted to do, build some businesses, but he never lost his "place in line" with WWE. Stephanie says this is ridiculous and says nothing happens in WWE's business that she doesn't know about. Shane says the only reason she's been able to climb so high is because he let it happen. She asks Vince and says there's no way any of this is true. Vince looks worried as fans do the "yes!" chant. Vince just wants to have a word with Shane. Stephanie says they have a little something called WrestleMania coming up and says if Shane wants to come, maybe she can get him a ticket. Vince thanks her and says he wants to have a word with Shane, he and Stephanie will talk later. She keeps asking if it's true and he puts her off. Vince finally admits there's some truth to it. Shane says it's all true. He says at the time, it was "best for business." Shane holds the ropes as Stephanie leaves the ring. She stops on his face and says she will never forgive him for this. Fans sing "goodbye" to Stephanie as Shane looks on. Vince gets riled up and asks what this is all about. He says he has his checkbook and will write Shane another check if he wants. Vince says name your price. Shane says it's not about money, it's never been about money. He says he left big money on the table just to get out from under Vince.

Shane talks about having freedom from Vince now. He talks about the McMahon family generations and his three kids at home. He wants this business to be around for the 6th and 7th generations of McMahons but it's not looking like it will be around at this rate. Shane says he wants full control of Monday Night RAW. Vince laughs and says that's a good one. Vince points out Shane would be controlling the whole company if he controls RAW. Vince says things have changed, WWE is a public company now. He says Shane can't just step in where he left off. Vince says Shane is just itching for a fight, he just came to embarrass Vince and Stephanie. The crowd pops when Vince says people want Shane to run RAW. Vince says people have no clue. Vince says he will give Shane what he wants if Shane has 1 match on 1 night. Vince says if Shane wins his match, he gets his wish. If he loses, Vince wants the key to a lock box Shane has, so Shane will never hold anything over his head again. Vince says he gets to pick the opponent and location. Fans chant "you still got it" as Shane thinks it over. Shane says Vince has a deal and they shake hands. Vince says he has one last opportunity to do something that gets heavily edited by the censors. Vince says one last beating. Shane remembers those beatings but says they only made him stronger. He says Vince is on. Vince says he's going to name a place and opponent almost as big as Shane's ego. The place will be WrestleMania 32. The opponent will be The Undertaker. The match will be Hell In a Cell. Shane looks surprised and we go to commercial.

The New Day vs. The Lucha Dragons and Neville

Big E dances around and yells about running things. They stomp away and do quick tags on Neville in the corner now.

We come back from another commercial break and The New Day is still in control. Cara finally gets a hot tag and unloads on the champions. Cara brings Kofi back in and gets a close 2 count that Big E breaks up. Kalisto takes out Big E with a springboard dropkick. Woods tosses Kalisto to the floor. Neville and Woods go at it now.

What a pop for Shane, the boy wonder is back! Shows what a return not being leaked can do and this could be the end of the authority angle

Not sure if Shane will actually fight Taker, why would taker fight for vince?  Either way it's a swerve and I'm on board, one of my all time favourites is back!

Anyone who isn't hyped for Shane being back is wrong

Well it's been confirmed as a match so I think it's on.
This is in Texas, Taker's home turf, often it was thought that this would be his go home show.
Yet he's booked to be basically Vince's lackey against a guy who's not wrestled in what 10 years, was never really a wrestler (though he did some extremely good stunts) and who will be cheered as the result is Shane would then get control of Raw.
Add to it that Shane said 'cya at WM' meaning that he won't appear again until the show itself so there's not going to be any layers of plot to build upon.
Just one huge clusterf**k of an idea.

They've basically two things that as separate entities are really good 'Undertaker on home turf' & 'Shane return' and turned them into some monstrosity.

IS Taker really going to lose in his hometown in Hell in a Cell?

They way it's scripted it's going to happen and Shane will gain control, otherwise it's totally fudging pointless!!!!

Casual fans may lap this up.....but not me.

You think this is Vince's terms for Shane coming back into the fold? Taking one enormous bump via an Undertaker Last Ride?

Welcome home son.....welcome home.

It is what it is, Shane won't be back long term and wont be taking over RAW, what does that even supposed to mean anyway? It'd be the same writers having the same creative influence etc...

Shane will come in, do 20mins with Taker in a gimmick filled match, do a lot of big bumps, all that will mask both guys actual ring deficincies and when Taker inevitably goes over everyone will pop because the match will be action packed, the plucky little underdog fought his heart out but in the end the star of the show goes over.

The whole 'RAW' angle is just the hook they need to use in order to get to the point were a match with Taker is renotely feesible, I've no problem with it by the way, I actually think it was a very clever and creative way to go, at least now fas have the excitement of "what happens next" if Shane beats him, it might fall flat post Mania when the fans have their hopes snatched from their claws when Shane goes away again but the goal at the moment is to build hype for WrestleMania, I don't see another available opponent who'd have garnered such a reaction while having a storyline reason to get such a match.


No doubt people could say Sting, Cena, Balor, Samoa Joe or AJ Styles, while 4 of the 5 definitely have the talent to share a ring and the other (Sting) has that historical linkage with him, two are injured and the other three have no reason at this point to find themselves in such a match up with The Undertaker.

Im not sure how to feel about the whole thing.

On one hand I like the story of Shane coming to take control from Vince because the Authority needs to go. On the other, can anyone actually believe he can beat Undertaker?

Right now, the cons outweigh the pros in my mind. Im excited, and happy to see Shane back, but I cant help but feel this is a rushed mess.

I think there's more to come. If Cena gets fit in time maybe he'll help or replace Shane in the match, and then Shane takes over Raw with Cena's help.

I agree with Marky,its a way to get the ball rolling on a feud for Cena to slot in to,and a way of backing out of it if he's not fit in time without completely ruining the story.
Taker shouldn't be Vince's lapdog but I guess he'll have something to say about that in the coming weeks.
I'm intrigued so I guess that's job done on their part.

Also Ryback turning heel, surely with his new Goldberg style look and his new attitude he's gonna have a Wrestlemania match with Goldberg (who openly wants one more match in WWE)!

I think it’s really smart by the WWE. Really smart. Throwing a curveball at what was thought to be a lacklustre Wrestlemania. Suddenly it adds intrigue and unpredictability. Personally I think Shane is the Plan B and they are booking that until they find out if they can go with Plan A – John Cena. It doesn’t make sense though – putting the babyface McMahon who wants to topple the Authority against the babyface Taker in his hometown. Do you think anyone will cheer against Taker in favour of Shane in Texas? And why would Taker want to wrestle on behalf of the Authority and do them a favour by keeping them in power? But that’s why it’s intriguing I guess. I expect things to change but I haven’t got a problem with it if it is Shane v Taker.

Taker shouldn't be Vince's lapdog but I guess he'll have something to say about that in the coming weeks.
I'm intrigued so I guess that's job done on their part.

Crazy as it sounds Hell in a Cell may protect Cena's injury more as it can be more of a brawl than a technical match.

Do you really think WWE Creative have thought with that many layers?
Personally I think we'll hear nothing at all to add depth to this feud and the match will just happen at Mania.

All they've got to do is have the contract for the match state "Shane (or his representative)" and it be an oversight on Vince's part and it's done. Or Cena just gets involved on the night if fit.

Why would they after months of trying to stop Roman Reigns be champ then make a number 1 contenders match with him in it the moment he loses the title?

Because they don't actually think things through.

Is Undertaker battling for the Authority, or is it more just that he's a supernatural being and sees himself as above it? To him it's just a match?

It is incredibly weird though. I just don't understand, I feel like it's the kind of thing I'd see in a dream then wake up and go, oh wait, that's ridiculous.

Aside from the Shane/Taker thing, I've got to own up and admit I'm probably the only one who doesn't have a problem with HHH v Reigns. I get that the super booking of Reigns is pretty rough but for me it's been a classic slow burning fued it's only right that it should culminate at Mania. It went up a notch last night too. I can't help but hand it to HHH, whenever it's Mania season he always ups his game (no pun intended). I actually think the match could turn out to be pretty good. We wrote off Lesnar v Reigns but that was better than expected. When they face off before the bell, with the Mania magic in that stadium, it should and could be a great match. it just pishes me off that the smarks will root for HHH and boo the hell out of Reigns when he goes over with The Rock raising his hand.

Could this be the year we see a Cena heel turn? I think it's silly looking into the logic and reasoning behind the Shane vs Taker match...let's face it little of what WWE writers come up with makes sense. However I do think this would be a perfect opportunity to get the Cena turn done and really take things in a new direction...would be passable and certainly would blow the roof off the building seeing Cena allign himself with the authority...also do we see this match closing out Mania? If they stick with Reigns vs HHH as a singles match I just can't see them using that as the closing moment given its inevitable reigns will win and we know the indifference to that..

Moving onto that match...the rock holding the arm aloft was mentioned...I actually think there will be a bigger angle than that, I can see The Rock getting involved and costing HHH the title...thus leading to a match between the two either at Summerslam or (worse option because it would be horrendously slow burning) Mania next year.

Brock vs Ambrose will be a good brawl but can we see Ambrose going over? People say they want to see Ambrose get the huge push but would him winning be believable and is he the man to finally bring down the beast?

I agree with most that the matches and the booking behind many of them make very little sense...and there is a huge danger that the crowd crap all over the two biggest matches at Mania....given Undertaker would seemingly beat Shane and Reigns is set to beat HHH...however I think creative have given themselves room to get out of jail and put some huge swerves in to take the heat off those inevitables. The question is will they actually be sensible and use them..

Cena will take over from Shane. They'll have to make it all make sense but there's plenty of time to do that. Bit long but enjoyed the opening segment. Shane's been missed.

Looking forward to Ambrose v lesnar more tho. Ambrose doesn't have to win this to make himself a main eventer after wrestlemania. Just needs the quality performance to put him there.

Reigns v HHH I'm not fully invested in because I know the crowd will ruin it so WWE have some work to do there with a turn or a twist.

Throw in Owens, Styles, Ziggler, the Wyatts and a few others and it should be watchable, maybe even good.

Don't expect much and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Raw March 7th - Allstate Arena, Chicago
Raw March 14th - Consol Centre, Pittsburgh
Raw March 21st - Wells Fargo Centre, Philadelphia
Raw March 28th - Barclays Centre, Brooklyn

Nothing like 4 hostile crowds in big wrestling cities for Roman Reigns to enjoy on the road to Wrestlemania. They are going to destroy him. Poor lad.

Not gonna happen, BUT

Didn't Shane "own" WCW once? So Shane comes out vs Taker. Brawl style fight. Blood all over the couches. Then Sting's music hits, does a favour for his old boss. needs work but it ticks all the boxes for a Mania moment
Shane winning
Sting vs Taker
The Authority being kicked to the curb.

Dave Meltzer reported last week that Takers opponent would be someone who is not on the roster. Shane obviously ticks that box but I'd perhaps have him be allowed to pick someone to wrestle on his behalf but it can't be anyone on the roster, he has to pick his own guy. The following week Shane introduces his pick to face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania - Goldberg.

Goldberg vs Taker at Mania. A beautiful car crash.

It's fairly smart by WWE can go 1 of 3 ways.

Shane vs Taker - Someone interferes etc
Cena vs Taker - If fit
NXT guy vs Taker - Just play off wanting WWE to be around for the "Next generation" stuff. New Guard vs Old Guard etc

I cant help but think this would be better with Reigns in place of Shane. Reigns can finally get rid of the Authority but he has to do the impossible first. Then Reigns can introduce Shane the night after Mania.

Although no one is going to manage to get the Undertaker booed at WrestleMania. And Reigns would likely still face a hostile reaction. They should have been building Taker as a heel for a while now to get this to work proper.

I'm sorry but this was an amazing Raw that was brilliantly done. So many good stories going into Mania, and I'm with you Mr H my old pal, some of us have to be mature enough to say Reigns/HHH is a good story and will probably be a really good match.

I liked everything on the show.

However, I do find the logic behind Taker being Vince's lapdog a bit weird. I know he is Mr WWE and has a bond with Vince, but it's a tad weird. There needs a lot more to be done on this to make it work, but then if everything was settled and nailed already the build up would be dull as all hell.

Very good two nights in a row WWE, well done.

Id love that. Id love them to go with character and have Undertaker say no, so Vince finds someone else and says if Taker loses he has to retire. Up the stakes again.

Saw this online, love how wrestling fans remember stuff:

Corporate Ministry babeh wrote:On the August 2, 1999 episode of RAW (available on the Network), Shane McMahon disbands the Corporate Ministry. Starting at about the 25:12 mark, Shane says:
"Now as it relates to the Corporate Ministry, the entire Corporate Ministry is now free to do whatever they want to whomever they want, until I deem it necessary to bring everybody back together ...."

Also loving what Meltzer has said about Shane since. That Shane was genuinely annoyed that Steph was seen as the heir to the throne and thats why he left, that Shane isn't in a management position as yet but could be, and that Shane lives in NY and runs his business (in China) from there so could easily be a weekly TV fixture.

HERE COMES THE MONEY

If they wanted to make WM the biggest draw then could they see Austin represent Shane? Home state hero v Home state hero. That would have a similar reaction to Rock v Hogan with both getting great support. Can write it in with Austin being Vince's long term thorn in his side from back in the day and then Taker could get beaten without the crowd getting peed off

Yes. Basically tickets are on sale from Raw v WWE implying that Shane wins and there's a brand split.
