Raw Recap (11/02/2015)


Another week and another episode on Monday Night Raw; this is how it all played out:

Roman Reigns comes out first to address Seth Rollins. Reigns discusses how he will be the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion which brings out Rollins who finds Reigns’ statement amusing. Rollins then rubs his WrestleMania heist in Reigns’ face … The Authority comes out before the situations gets hostile. Triple H announces a five-on-five Survivor Series match between a team selected by both Rollins and Reigns for the main event of Raw.

Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler

This match was good; another exceptional showing by Kevin Owens who picked up the victory from a Tyler Breeze distraction.

Backstage: Seth Rollins recruits Kevin Owens.

Cesaro vs. The Miz

Cesaro out wrestles The Miz throughout this match before forcing Miz to tap out to the Sharp Shooter.

The Wyatt Family arrive … Bray Wyatt says he will give everyone “something truly special.” Wyatt claims that he and his family have harvested the souls of The Undertaker and Kane; assuming their powers in the process.

Lucha Dragons vs. King Barrett and Sheamus

The two tough Europeans would bring the fight to the two masked men but would not be able to topple the smaller tag team. Kalisto pins King Barrett.

R-Truth vs. Alberto Del Rio

Nothing spectacular here; just another match set to remind fans of Alberto Del Rio as he picks up the victory.

Backstage: Seth Rollins recruits The New Day.

Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch vs. Paige vs. Brie Bella (#1 Contender’s Match)

Great effort put forth from the four women. Amazing Suplex/Powerbomb spot from the top rope. Paige eventually pins Becky Lynch for the victory.

Seth Rollins, The New Day, and Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns, The Usos, Ryback, and Dean Ambrose (Elimination Match)

In honor of Survivor Series, this traditional five-on-five match would add a nice element to the Monday Night Raw main event:

Xavier Woods is eliminated first from Team Rollins.

Kofi Kingston is eliminated second from Team Rollins.

Jey Uso is eliminated third from Team Reigns.

Jimmy Uso is eliminated fourth from Team Reigns.

Big E is eliminated fifth from Team Rollins.

Ryback is eliminated sixth from Team Reigns.

Kevin Owens is eliminated sixth from Team Rollins.

Seth Rollins is eliminated seventh via DQ to award Team Reigns the victory.

Sole Survivors: Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose

This would prove to be a solid match with a lot of action throughout. Nice way to remind fans about the traditions of Survivor Series.

Going Forward

Whenever John Cena is away from WWE programming an opportunity presents itself for somebody to shine in his absence. Will it be Roman Reigns? Kevin Owens perhaps?

Seth Rollins continues to prove why he is The Man.

Charlotte vs. Paige needs to happen. However, Sasha Banks needs to continue to look strong as hopefully a title shot approaches for “The Boss.” (The fans want Sasha … Give them Sasha!)

The Brothers of Destruction has been abducted; a familiar circumstance for both but the wrong side of the abduction. Bray Wyatt has stolen their essence? It works. Interesting storyline heading into Survivor Series.
