Seth Rollins, Sting, Sheamus Kick Off RAW
This week’s show kicks off with WWE World Heavyweight and WWE United States Champion Seth Rollins coming out to the ring. As seems to be the case lately, Rollins is given a lot of time to not really say a whole lot, as he’s basically just complaining about having to wrestle two matches at WWE Night Of Champions.
He says he was worried but then he remembered he’s Seth Rollins. He says he’s Seth “Friggin” Rollins and Night Of Champions is going to be his night. He says he’s got two future Hall Of Famers vying for both of his titles, but he is going to own them both, just like he owns all of us. He says if it’s the last thing he does, he’s going to get his statue back.
As he continues to talk, Sting’s crow sound hits and we see him backstage dusting Rollins’ statue and mocking him, telling him he’s taking good care of it and daring him to come get it.
After that, out of nowhere, Sheamus’ music hits and out he comes. He talks about how even if Rollins wins both of his matches somehow at Night Of Champions, he might have to wrestle a third match — against Mr. Money In The Bank, Sheamus. On that note, we head to our first commercial break of the evening.
Backstage: Seth Rollins & The Authority
Backstage, Seth Rollins approaches Stephanie McMahon, complaining about his statue and his two matches at Night Of Champions. He asks her where Triple H is. She says she has a plan. He still wants HHH. Finally, he sees HHH behind him and ultimately, HHH’s plan is to book Rollins in two matches tonight to prepare him for his two Night Of Champions matches. It will be champion vs. champion as Rollins takes on I-C champ Ryback in one match tonight on RAW, while Rollins will team with The New Day to take on The Prime Time Players and John Cena in the other match tonight.
Paige vs. Sasha Banks
We return to the ring and it’s time for Divas action as the “Divas Revolution” continues on RAW. It will be Paige representing Team P.C.B. and Sasha Banks representing Team B.A.D.
Early on, Paige controls the action. She hits a couple of moves and plays to the crowd a bit as the announcers put over the Divas Revolution and the upcoming title match at Night Of Champions. We head to a mid-match break.
When we return from commercial we see the action still going on inside the ring. Banks is controlling the offense with ease at this point, and is taunting Team P.C.B., as well as the fans. Finally, after Naomi and Tamina cause a distraction, Banks manages to sneak in a pin on Paige for the victory. After the match we head to another commercial break.
Winner: Sasha Banks
The Ascension vs. Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose
Konnor of The Ascension kicks things off for his team while Ambrose starts off for his team. Ambrose establishes control of the action and then tags in Reigns. Konnor tags in Viktor and Reigns starts taking it to him now.
After some brief action on the floor, including a Drive By spot from Reigns, the action resumes in the ring where Reigns hits a spear and Ambrose hits a big move off the top rope for the 1-2-3.
Winners: Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose
After The Match: The Wyatt Family
After the match, The Wyatt Family appears on the big screen. First, Braun Strowman talks about how it’s okay to be afraid. Bray Wyatt talks about how their fate will be set at Night Of Champions. Erick Rowan simply finishes by saying, “Run!” We head back to another commercial break.
