Monday Night Raw from Dallas, Texas … here’s how the action went down:
STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN is out first! The Texas Rattlesnake introduces The Undertaker who addresses his issues with Brock Lesnar who soon arrives with Paul Heyman. The Advocate of The Beast sells the Hell in a Cell match this Sunday.
John Cena and The Dudley Boyz vs. The New Day
This was your typical overdone six-man tag team match. Slightly slow, slightly chaotic near the end; Xavier Woods scores the roll-up victory amid the chaos.
Nikki Bella and Alicia Fox vs. Sasha Banks and Naomi
It has become apparent that Sasha Banks is the breakout star of the Divas Division. Banks was the best part of this mediocre match which Team Bella eventually won.
SHAWN MICHAELS LIVE ON RAW! HBK puts over the Hell in a Cell event. Seth Rollins interrupts. Rollins talks down to Michaels who in turn slanders The Champ.
Seth Rollins vs. Ryback
After watching Seth Rollins stand in the ring with Shawn Michaels, Ryback proves to be a massive bore who cannot contend with Rollins. The Champ wins with a Pedigree.
Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, and Neville vs. Sheamus, Rusev, and King Barrett
Here we had another unnecessary six-man tag team match that felt crowded and now completely overdone. King Barrett gains the victory for his team.
RIC FLAIR LIVE AND IN COLOR! The Nature Boys promotes WrestleMania XXXII taking place next year in Dallas before bringing out Roman Reigns.
The Wyatt Family arrive as Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns have a face-to-face sit down which leads to Reigns and a chair taking out The Wyatt Family.
-Backstage Segment with Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, Seth Rollins, and Shawn Michaels-
HBK goads Seth Rollins into joining Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns against The Wyatt Family. The Shield is back … at least for the night.
Charlotte vs. Brie Bella
Once Charlotte rids herself of the Bella Twins, it’s time to see her face Sasha Banks on the main roster. As for this match: decent, not great. Brie Bella taps to The Figure Eight.
Kevin Owens vs. Mark Henry
Why is a wrestler facing an aged power lifter? Kevin Owens is above this level of competition. Owens wins with an impressive Pop-Up Powerbomb.
The Shield Revisited vs. The Wyatt Family
Although this was ANOTHER six-man tag team match, there was actually a factor of interest at play here with the reuniting of Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Roman Reigns.
While this was not the match of the year, it did provide an interesting dynamic to the show as an old rivalry was rehashed on a night filled with legends.
Seth Rollins would abandon his former brethren while Dean Ambrose would provide The Wyatt Family with the victory following a disqualification.
