The Undertaker Kicks Off RAW
This week’s post-Battleground edition of WWE RAW kicks off with a gong. And another. The lights go out, the smoke starts pouring out of the stage and finally, he emerges.
The Undertaker slowly makes his way out to the stage to a huge pop from the fans. Michael Cole points out that this is a rare appearance on RAW for The Undertaker.
The announcers put over The Dead Man as he slowly makes his way to the ring. The fans break out into “Under-Taker! Under-Taker!” chants as his music cuts off. We see he has a mic in his hand.
Taker growls and then begins speaking. He says he stands here tonight a relentless, remorseless, cold-blooded, vengeful, grim-reaper. The fans cheer. He says streaks are made to be broken.
The Dead Man says Lesnar had to continuously, week-after-week, month-after-month, remind everyone of his greatest accomplishment, and now, he says — enough! He says Lesnar has turned him into a raging inferno.
He continues by saying last night was his true resurrection. He tells Lesnar he can’t kill what won’t die. He says unleashed forces will now set their careers towards new destiny’s and he will challenge his mortality. He will conquer what has yet to be conquered.
Taker says in the end, just like all living things, be it man or beast, you will rest …in …peace. He rolls his eyes back in his head, the gong hits and his music plays as the lights dim and turn blue again.
Backstage: Triple H & Stephanie McMahon
Backstage, HHH and Steph are happy with what’s going on between Undertaker and Lesnar, talking about how they’ve already got their SummerSlam main event and it’s going to be even bigger than their first match. Steph says she’s gonna get the promotional ball rolling. HHH says he’s gonna call Heyman and tell him that Heyman and Lesnar aren’t needed here tonight, because Lesnar and Taker under the same roof could ruin their plans for SummerSlam.
The announcers break down some of what happened at Battleground and then announce some matches for tonight, including Charlotte vs. Brie Bella — which is up next! We head to our first commercial break of the evening.
Charlotte vs. Brie Bella
When we return from the break, we see Tamina, Naomi and Sasha Banks at ringside. They will be joining the gang on commentary for this one.
Out first comes the trio of Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Paige. As they make their way to the ring we see a backstage clip from last night that features Ric Flair hugging and kissing Charlotte.
Finally, Team Bella — Nikki, Brie and Alicia Fox make their way to the ring. Charlotte and Brie Bella are set to go one-on-one in our first match of the evening here tonight on RAW.
The bell sounds and here we go. Early on, the fans are super into Charlotte, who is doing a lot of cool athletic moves. Naomi has her feet up on the table during commentary, as we keep shooting back to the announce table to check in with that Diva trio.
Meanwhile, back in the ring, Brie hits a missile dropkick off the top rope for a near fall. Charlotte hits some chops and is now going for the Figure-8. Nikki hops on the apron for the distraction. Charlotte knocks her off. Charlotte spears Brie in the ring. Now she applies the Figure-8 and Brie taps out.
Backstage: Triple H & The Miz
Backstage, we see Triple H on his cell phone. HHH is talking for a while when The Miz walks in. HHH ignores him for a while and keeps talking. Finally, HHH acknowledges Miz and within seconds, makes a match between Miz and Big Show for tonight. We head to another commercial break.
