WWE RAW RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR FEB. 20
"What you don’t know," the legend goes, "can't hurt you" if you only want to live and die in fear. They tell us to believe just half of what we see and absolutely nothing that we hear. But me, I'm liveblogging this here pro wrestling show, and you can believe that, folks.
Show opens with an "in memory" graphic for George "the Animal" Steele.
We then get a recap of the Festival of Friendship and the tragic ending thereof.
In the arena, Kevin Owens is sitting in the ring, illuminated by a spotlight. He collects his thoughts a second as "You suck!" chants build and gets on the mic to say that now that the spotlight is finally where it belongs, he can answer the question that's on everyone's mind.
"Why does Kevin Owens think he's gonna walk out of Fastlane as Universal Champion?"
If somebody had told him when he was 15 that he was gonna defend his title in the main event of a pay-per-view against Goldberg, he would have told them they were crazy. Not about the part where he's champion and main eventing PPVs, but about who his opponent would be.
Goldberg. The crowd chants for Bill and Kev acknowledges them, saying that the chant makes Goldberg feel invincible, makes him think everyone believes the hype. But Owens doesn't, in fact, he never believed the hype. Even when he was a kid and Goldberg was on a tear through WCW, he didn't care.
He never impressed KO, not then, not now, not ever. What about embarrassing Brock Lesnar? That only happened because Brock took Goldberg lightly and Bill got lucky, and that sure as hell isn't happening to Owens. He knows exactly what to expect and what to do.
No one thinks he has a chance of retaining the title, but he's going to have to prove them wrong again. He knows he's walking out as champion, and you know why? Because at Fastlane, he doesn't have to beat Goldberg, he just has to outlast him. It's a known fact that the longer a Goldberg match goes, the more the scale tips in favor of his opponent.
Kev promises that it's not going to be a 90 second sprint and promises to make Bill work his match instead. He'll outlast him, and everybody knows in that department, Goldberg doesn't come close to him, because he knows how to play the game (The Game?) better than anyone else.
He waited his entire life to be a champion in WWE, and now that he is, there's nothing he will not do to keep it. What was it Goldberg said when he came back? He wanted to show his wife and son that superheros still exist? Owens isn't going to let him use HIS title as a prop in his little fantasy.
At Fastlane, Kevin Owens is going to show Goldberg, his son, his wife, and everybody else, that superheroes don't exist. KO stands and addresses Goldberg one more time, saying that at Fastlane, the people can chant all they want, Bill can bark "You're next!" as much as he wants, but as far as he's concerned, Goldberg, "You're nothing."
As far as Chris Jericho goes-- "Y2J!" chants break out and Owens simply drops the mic and walks off.
Commentary hypes up our festivities, including our Man Event of Big Show vs. Braun Strowman and our #1 contender's tag team match. Enzo & Big Cass are walking backstage, and that match is after the break.
Back from commercial in time for entrances. Cesaro & Sheamus come out first, and then Enzo & Big Cass, they do the deal.
Enzo plucks a fan's sign to do the "cuppa haters" gimmick and Cass declares their intention to be the next tag team champs, and he spells it out for 'em.
Cesaro & Sheamus vs. Enzo & Big Cass (WWE Raw Tag Team Championship #1 Contender's Match)
Sheamus and Cass to start, the bigger man shoving the Irishman in the corner with a collar and elbow but Sheamus takes charge with strikes. Colin turns it around, tries for a Stinger splash and misses but the Celtic Warrior connects with his spinning wheel kick in the corner.
Beats of the Bodhran blocked, back to the ring, off the ropes, Cesaro tags in and they lay Big Cass out. Wristlock, quick tag back to Sheamus, he's throwing knees, Cass fires back punches. Sheamus ducks a lariat but runs into a big scoop slam and Enzo tags in after some corner punches.
They taunt Cesaro in and Cass throws Amore at him and things break down for a minute. Cesaro tags in, runs around the ring to blast Enzo with an uppercut before mocking his dance and sending us to break.
Back from commercial and Sheamus has Enzo grounded with a reverse chinlock. Amore fights out with elbows but runs right into the Irish Curse and a knee drop to the face for two. Tag to Cesaro, Finlay Roll chained into a double stomp almost ends it and the Celtic Warrior comes back in.
Whip shoulder thrust, Cesaro back in, whip to the corner but Cesaro gets back body dropped outside on the charge. Enzo sends Sheamus out as well and the Irishman tries to cut him off but gets the runaround. Cesaro denies the tag with a huge uppercut to Enzo and a dropkick to Cass.
Amore with a drop toehold in the corner, tags made all around, Cass with a shoulder block, fallaway slam, Stinger splash connects this time, off the ropes for a boot and Cesaro comes in. Uppercut whip reversed, Swiss Superman with a double jump crossbody for two!
Big Cass hooked for the Neutralizer, counters with a back body drop, Cesaro immediately dodges around and hits the big corkscrew springboard uppercut, looking for the swing and Enzo's on him. Cesaro shakes him off, but it's enough for Cass to come over...
Enzo & Big Cass win by pinfall with East River Crossing from Big Cass on Cesaro, becoming #1 contenders to the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship.
Enzo gets on the mic after to tell us that they're the new number one contenders and their opponents tonight were chicken tenders. He taunts the Swiss Superman that they have that kryptonite, and Sheamus blasts him one with a Brogue Kick!
Kevin Owens is walking backstage when Mick Foley tells him he can't leave because he has a match against Sami Zayn. KO laughs at him and Mick asks what's funny. Owens tells him he thought he liked Sami, and that he should be careful to make sure he doesnt end up with more guys on the injured list than healthy.
On that note, we head to break.
Back from commercial and we get a vignette for Braun Strowman ahead of his Man Event match against the Big Show later tonight.
Commentary promises us some words from the new WWE Raw Women's Champion Bayley later, but for now, we get a video package covering her road to the title. After it finishes up, they address Charlotte's tweet from earlier demanding that Bayley give up the title.
Mick Foley is backstage on his phone, talking about how one of the greatest guitarists in the world is his guest tonight. Roman Reigns rolls up and Mick says he knows he wants Braun, but he has to wait until Fastlane. Roman tells him he's gonna have his main event, but as soon as it's done...
The Club come up and ask what, exactly he's planning. Karl Anderson suggests they have unfinished business, and Mick asks if Roman wants a match. Reigns nods, and Foley tells him to find a partner. The Big Dog says no partner is necessary, Mick goes for the cheap pop, and we head back to break.
Back from commercial and Brian Kendrick makes an entrance, because he has a match against Akira Tozawa.
Brian Kendrick demands a handshake to start but Tozawa hesitates, so Kendrick cheap-shots him with a lariat! Yanking his neck over the turnbuckle, he's got the Captain's Hook in but the match never officially began! Brian walks off, his message sent.
Commentary promises us the handicap match previously made is up next.
Backstage, Brian Kendrick is interviewed. He says nobody disrespects him, not since he was offered his first WWE contract 17 years ago. He says Tozawa has a lot of learning to do, and tonight was about respect.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial in time for Roman to make his entrance.
Roman Reigns vs. the Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows)
Anderson in with a big and punches right off, but Reigns knocks him down with a shoulder block. Dropdown, another shoulder block, arm wringer but Karl tags Luke in. Big right, Anderson heads back in the ring but gets clobbered and both members of the Club are out on the apron.
Drive-By on Big Hoot, Anderson pulls the hair over the ropes and Gallows fires off a big boot while he's got a second. Mounted punches back in the ring, Gallows throws up the Too Sweets, straight suplex, Big Dog seated on the mat, overhead elbows to the collarbone and Sex Ferguson locks a reverse chinlock on.
Roman fights to his feet and breaks free but Gallows has a knee and a big slicing right into the Gallows Pole for two! Tag to Machine Gun, looking for the Boot of Doom but Reigns dodges and the fight spills outside, a two-on-one clubberin'. Luke gets a chair and they head back in the ring but the Big Dog is waiting with boots for both of them.
Reigns grabs the chair and puts it to use...
The Club win by disqualification.
More chairshots, Anderson breaks it up but gets caught by the corner lariats and a big slicing right for number ten. Gallows in with body blows in the corner, off the ropes but he eats a Superman Punch! Anderson dives... ROMAN SPEARS HIM OUT OF THE AIR!
Commentary hypes up the Man Event once again and we get a recap of our opening segment. Michael Cole promises a sit-down interview with Brock Lesnar and Goldberg, and Corey Graves announces that the New Day will be in action against Rusev & Jinder Mahal up next, after the break.
Back from commercial and we get a video package about the New Day announcing their hosting gig at WrestleMania.
In the arena, Lana is in the ring to introduce Rusev and his tag partner.
Big E then does the deal. They once again hand-feed the front row Booty-Os. Xavier Woods says they have news for us, first off, his YouTube channel is about to hit one million subscribers, he's gonna be hosting the SXSW gaming awards, the New Day are working on their voiceover skills because they want to be the hyenas in the new Lion King.
Kofi Kingston adds that that's for real, they really want that gig, before Woods mentions the ice cream and then their hosting gig. Back to the ice cream, Kofi says they gotta have continuity. Last week, Bo Dallas destroyed their blueprints, but fear not, New Day have photographic memories and they put the blueprints back together. (Even Jinder & Rusev applaud their efforts!)
This time, they went digital, and it's encrypted so only New Day can see it. So after they're done putting six feet between four cheeks, they'll get to work on those plans, because--
Lana has a coughing fit and asks if they mean these plans? She is also holding a tablet. E says that looks like Flappy Bird, but they have real plans. Lana reads from her plans to prove that she has the real plans. Flux capacitor, booty juice, owls, unicorn horns...
They're the real deal, alright. New Day hit the ring to get their plans back but of course, Rusev and Jinder are in the way. The match itself will be after the break.
Back from commercial and the match is in progress!
Jinder Mahal & Rusev vs. New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston)
Kofi and Rusev to start, the Bulgarian locks a BEAR HUG on! I can hardly bear it! Kingston fights out but eats a big dropkick and Rusev gets fired up. Tag to Jinder, he comes in with knee drops into a choke before making the quick tag back. Kofi gets separation with a tornado DDT and makes the tag!
Big in with the trio of belly-to-belly suplexes, hip swivel, off the ropes for the big splash, looking for the Big Ending but Rusev comes in with a thrust kick. Kofi in, Rusev throws a punch but gets low bridged on a charge, trust fall suicide senton from Kingston!
Woods blows his trombone next to Lana and steals the plans back! He smashes the table against the steps and rips it in half! E with a back elbow, he hoists Mahal up...
New Day win by pinfall with Midnight Hour on Jinder Mahal.
Lana screams bloody murder over her double loss as New Day celebrate in the ring.
Up next, we have a contract signing for the Cruiserweight Championship, but first we get our obligatory and excellent video package in memory of George "the Animal" Steele.
Back from commercial and Austin Aries is in the ring for the contract signing. Jack Gallagher is next to him already, and Aries congratulates him for becoming #1 contender and commend him for his talent and skill getting him this opportunity despite his unwillingness to break the rules.
Gallagher says they're here to sign the contract and give him the opportunity to dethrone the delusional King of the Cruiserweights, and so he signs without drama. Austin introduces Neville and the King makes his entrance. He wastes no time signing either and immediately turns to leave.
Jack asks if he's leaving so soon and says he was hoping they could put their differences aside and have a spot of tea in the spirit of sportsmanship. Neville gets on the mic and asks if Gallagher is for real. Take a look at yourself, he says, you're exactly what American imbeciles expect of an Englishmen.
It's embarrassing, he says, and he should be ashamed of himself. He calls Jack a caricature, a cartoon, a stereotype that doesn't really exist. The reat streets of England look like himself, ugly and rough around the edges. Gallagher is what the WWE Universe wanted Neville to be, twiddling his mustache and twirling his umbrella.
But what Jack doesn't realize is the people aren't laughing with him, they're laughing at him, and after Fastlane, the only person laughing is going to be Neville. Gallagher corrects him, saying he's not playing a gentleman, he is a gentleman. The suit, the tie, the umbrella, the mustache doesn't come off at night, it's just who he is.
Neville's problem is that he believes that he's a king and thus better than everyone else, and that, Jack will not stand for. Neville tosses the table aside and asks what Gallagher presumes to do about it, challenge him to a duel?
Gallagher takes him down and pummels him! A headbutt sends the King out of the ring! Neville goes to charge back in but finds himself at the point of William III!
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial Nia Jax makes her entrance, because she's about to have a match.
Nia Jax vs. Sara Pierce
Pierce in with a dropkick, off the ropes but she gets shoved down. A biel chucks her across the ring, corner avalanche, disdainful kick, she picks her up...
Nia Jax wins by pinfall with a Samoan drop.
Nia is interviewed about the controversy in the women's title scene. The only controversy she can see is that she hasn't gotten a title shot, and all these sheep in the crowd know it. She'd like Sasha Banks to try something like that with her, and the bottom line is she's putting the champ on notice.
We then get a Black History Month vignette about Barack Obama.
Bayley's slapping hands and giving out hugs backstage, her answer to Charlotte Flair is up next, after the break.
Back from commercial and Bayley makes her entrance.
Bayley soaks in the "You deserve it!" chants for a second and thanks the crowd. What better place to celebrate, she asks, than California? She grew up in California, and she misses it very much, she had the best friends, best family, biggest dreams.
Some wanted to be dental hygenists, or Britney Spears, or even a tattoo artist, but all Bayley ever wanted was to be a WWE Superstar and possibly have the honor of calling herself champion. And guess what, that dream came true last week. One second she was in the Figure Eight, and the next second her hand was raised.
She can't quite put it into words, but it was awesome. At the end of Raw she ran to her phone and called her dad, and she couldn't get out the words, but he's here right now, so she'll say it again-- dad, she did it. That's a phone call she'll never forget, but classic Charlotte has to try and tarnish the best week of Bayley's life.
Well guess what, Charlotte, face the facts, because Bayley is the Raw Women's Champion.
Enter Stephanie McMahon. She shakes Bayley's hand and pats her shoulder on her way to get her own microphone, and says she has to ask when she's talking about dreams, her vision, did she imagine that she'd be competing one-on-one for the Women's Championship in front of a sold-out crowd in the main event of Monday Night Raw?
Did she envision people chanting "You deserve it!"? Or did she envision almost losing until someone came down and cheap-shotted the champion for what can only be a tainted victory. And when she called her dad, was he silent for a moment because he knew how the match ended?
But Steph isn't here to upset her, because she looks at the kids and sees how they look up to her, because Bayley is good and uncompromisable, of moral character, a hugger. She's Bayley, and that's good enough, but is she willing to throw away who she is to hold a championship she didn't really earn?
The Bayley Steph knows would hold herself to a higher standard, do the right thing, and relinquish the championship. The crowd does not like this, but Steph continues, saying that no matter what these people say, Bayley is better than that. Bayley unhooks the title from her waist and considers it.
Steph keeps egging her on, saying it's the defining moment of who Bayley really is inside, a chance to stand for something more than having a championship for the wrong reasons. McMahon holds her hands out expectantly but before Bayley can make a move, Sasha Banks interrupts.
Sasha starts talking but Steph cuts her off and asks why Bayley can't seem to do anything without Banks getting involved. Does she think Bayley can't handle herself or does she think she can't win on her own, or is she some kind of charity case? The Boss tells her not to listen to this garbage and Bayley won it fair and square.
Bayley is like a sister to her, and she's not gonna just stand by while she gives up something she's earned. Banks asks her to listen to the WWE Universe and how they love her. She polls the crowd directly, and of course, they're agin' it. Steph asks if she's out here out of love for Bayley or because she knows Bayley is a champion she can beat?
Banks nearly gets in McMahon's face but Bayley backs her off and says Stephanie's right... this title means everything to her, it's bigger than her, Sasha, or Charlotte. She worked her entire life for this moment, and Sasha knows what that's like, and she didn't work her entire life for a title that she didn't earn.
The title should represent happiness and competition, not controversy. So should she give it up? There's only one answer... HELL NO SHE'S NOT GIVING IT UP! She pinned Charlotte in the middle of the ring for the third time to become the Raw Women's Champion, and it wasn't because of Sasha, it was because of the WWE Universe!
And she'll fight for all of us, and defend the title any time, any place, and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
Enter Charlotte Flair. She wants to apologize to Stephanie on behalf of the entire women's division for these two ingrates being so disrespectful. She says Bayley is right, she doesn't want the title to be given back to her, because she's going to take it back.
And at WWE Fastlane, the Queen of PPV is invoking her rematch clause. Sasha cuts her off and tells her to shut up and says she's no queen, and at Fastlane Bayley will prove that. But hey, her knee is 100%, so why not have another match right now? Flair tells Banks to shut up and says that she wouldn't pass up an opportunity to put her back on the shelf.
Charlotte promises to put the Boss in a wheelchair forever, wooo! Steph makes it official and says it's gonna start right now!
Or, well, after the break. Whatever.
Back from commercial and the match is in progress!
Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks
Right to a collar and elbow, Charlotte forces it back in the corner for the break and Sasha hauls off with a big right before Flair kicks her leg out of her leg. Picking up the leg to slam it to the mat, a second try and Banks blocks it, off the ropes, tilt-a-whirl pin, she's looking to end it.
Charlotte with a mat slam, whip to the corner, Banks up, headscissors plants the Queen's face into the turnbuckle but Flair dodges the corner knees. Back body drop countered to a sunset flip but Charlotte has a knee drop to press the advantage. A few more get her a quick cover but can't finish it.
Snapmare into an overhead elbow and then the figure four headscissors complete with the repeat smashing of the face into the mat. Rolling her around with it now and throwing her into the corner, boot up on the charge but the Boss runs into a big boot after.
Flair throws Sasha outside and we go to break.
Back from commercial and Charlotte has an inverted headlock neckbreaker into the the Dragon sleeper. The Boss is fading more with every punctuating neckbreaker but she gets a few knees up to try and break, Flair tries for an inverted suplex but Banks lands on her feet.
Whip to the corner, boot up, duck the big boot this time, flying axehandles, dropkick, whip reversed, wheelbarrow bulldog gets two for Sasha! To their feet, Charlotte with a jawbreaker but Banks gets her set up for teh corner double knee drop but the Queen slips away and outside.
Meteora off the apron! Dana Brooke runs down but Bayley gets up from the commentary desk to stop her from interfering. In the distraction, Sasha hits the lungblower...
Sasha Banks wins by submission with the Bank Statement.
The Hall of Fame video package for Diamond Dallas Page follows.
Backstage, Sami Zayn is interviewed about his match with Kevin Owens. He went on the Highlight Reel five months ago and told Chris Jericho that he'd get betrayed, but he's not happy about it. He knows Kevin very well, and he feels like he knows Samoa Joe very well as well, because they're quite similar.
Joe blindsides him last week, but it's okay because it's for HHH, and HHH is the only one that ever believed in him? The one truth is that time always catches up to these guys, and Joe will be the same. Owens has nobody to hide behind, and he's gotta deal with Goldberg at Fastlane, and Sami kicking his teeth in tonight.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial in time for Kevin Owens to make his entrance.
We get a recap of the Festival of Friendship again, and then Sami Zayn makes his entrance... only for Samoa Joe to blindside him once more! He takes Zayn pillar-to-post down the entryway and throws him into the ringpost before laying punch after punch into him on the barricade and throwing him into the ringpost again.
A big senton plays exclamation point and Samoa informs Sami that this is his world now before sliding him into the ring for the match, if indeed there will be a match. Zayn isn't giving up and he gets to his feet!
Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn
KO in with a lariat in the corner and a second before hitting the cannonball! Putting boots to the underdog now, a second cannonball, mounted punches and a stomp. He drags him up, short-arm whip...
Kevin Owens wins by pinfall with the pop-up powerbomb.
We get a tale of the tape for Big Show vs. Braun Strowman, but after the break, Michael Cole is going to interview Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.
Back from commercial we get an "in memory" graphic for Ivan Koloff.
Backstage, Stephanie is arguing with Mick about being disrespected by Sasha and Bayley. Foley says he was thinking of going out there... to support Sasha and Bayley. He enjoys every moment of Steph being embarrassed and she tells him that he's being insubordinate.
A few weeks ago, he asked her nicely to not treat him like he's stupid, and now he's not asking. He listened to her, he trusted her, he believed in her, and now Seth Rollins is on the shelf again, at the behest of her husband. He personally told HHH about how great Samoa Joe was back in 2004!
He knows he's committing career suicide, but he refuses to be belitted by her or her husband or let her greed get in the way of what he knows is right. She calls him back and tells him to be careful, there's a cord on the floor and she wouldn't want him to have an accident.
Michael Cole is backstage with Brock and Paul. He sets up a question about the Universal Championship and Heyman cuts him off, saying Brock is on edge lately and Cole should lower his voice and adjust his tone. They know where he's going with this, and there are those who say that Goldberg/Owens affects Brock's prominence at WrestleMania.
Lesnar disagrees. And stands up. He takes Cole's chair and sits in front of the camera as Heyman continues. Some say that KO should be recognized as the most violent champion in recent history. Lesnar disagrees. There are those who say that if Goldberg takes Owens lightly, he'll be in for a long night. Lesnar disagrees.
Paul thinks Owens is hitting his stride and is prepared to shock the world against Goldberg. Lesnar disagrees. Paul thinks that if Goldberg hits a spear and a Jackhammer, Goldberg goes to WrestleMania as Universal Champion, and that's just one more thing, like his health, well-being, and so on, that the Beast will conquer.
On that, his client Brock Lesnar agrees.
We see the ring crew reinforcing the ring for our Man Event as Braun makes his entrance. The match begins after the break!
Back from commercial, the Big Show makes his entrance.
Big Show vs. Braun Strowman
A staredown to start, the tension thick. Braun has a smile on his face as Big Show steps up to him. Show backs off, and they go collar and elbow. Neither man can get an advantage and they break. Back to the lockup, Big gets a wristlock, Braun rolls through and hits the mat to escape before hitting a kip-up to reverse!
Show gets the ropes and Strowman takes his time breaking. Big shoves him down and they go back to the lockup. Braun with a side headlock, he takes the giant over and grounds him. Show turns it into a pin so Strowman stands back up, then Big shoots him off only to eat a big lariat.
Braun roars and heads back over, demanding that Big Show get up. Shoulder thrusts in the corner, across the ring for a corner avalanche, Mafia kick, headbutt, a clipping forearm strike, he forces the giant in the corner again for punches but gets goozled on the charge!
Strowman with a kick to the gut, DDT gets one. Straight right hand and Braun is choking the giant over the ropes. Clubbing blow, another kick, corner avalanche and Big is stumbling. Strowman clubs him to the mat, whip reversed, Show telegraphs the back body drop and takes a kick and a lariat for two.
He hooks the giant for a suplex but Show blocks and tries his own. Strowman blocks, tries his own, gets show off his feet, and the same in reverse. Struggling, Big Show connects with it! Back to his feet, Braun runs into a boot twice, punch to the gut, Big whips him in the corner, Stinger splash, off the ropes for a flying tackle!
Big calling for the chokeslam, he has the goozle again... CHOKESLAM! NOT ENOUGH! My god, Show is climbing the turnbuckles but Braun cuts him off. He scoops him up, Show escapes and sets him up top with the suplex lift. Big overhand chop to keep him in place before Show climbs up after.
Braun blocks the superplex with body blows, he straightens himself but jumps into the knockout punch... STROWMAN KICKED OUT! Show to his feet, he climbs the turnbuckles again, going for the Vader Bomb but Braun hoists him up... RUNNING POWERSLAM ON THE GIANT! NO GOOD!
Strowman takes the straps down! Big has a defiant goozle but Braun knocks his hand aside and picks him up...
Braun Strowman wins by pinfall with the running powerslam.
Roman Reigns, as promised, comes down after! Ducks a lariat, throwing rights, off the ropes, Superman Punch! Another knocks Braun down! Calling for the spear... BRAUN WITH A DROPKICK TO COUNTER! Strowman scoops the Big Dog up for a running powerslam!
He roars in Roman's face!
That's the show, folks.
