Raw Discussion Thread - 03/20 - No Sleep Till Brooklyn!



Quote:
WWE Raw preview, March 20, 2017: Brooklyn, N.Y. braces for battle of juggernauts

After Braun Strowman laid out Roman Reigns this past Monday night, The Big Dog will have an opportunity for redemption when he battles The Monster Among Men on Raw, just two weeks before he faces The Undertaker at WrestleMania, The Ultimate Thrill Ride. Plus, Chris Jericho presents a special edition of “The Highlight Reel” with the “real” Kevin Owens as his guest!
Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman settle the score



Quote:
Roman Reigns has a near-insurmountable task ahead as he prepares to take on The Undertaker at WrestleMania. But first he’ll need to resolve his unfinished business with Braun Strowman, who has been on the warpath since his defeat to The Big Dog at WWE Fastlane.

This past Monday on Raw, after Reigns shrugged off the warnings of WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels and vowed to retire The Deadman during The Ultimate Thrill Ride, Strowman blindsided “The Guy” and left him reeling on the entrance ramp. Because of this attack, Raw General Manager Mick Foley scheduled a match between the warring rivals this Monday night on Raw. Will Reigns be able to conquer The Monster Among Men as his fateful WrestleMania battle with The Phenom draws closer?
Do repercussions await Mick Foley?



Quote:
After attempting to “fire” Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and being humiliated in the middle of the ring by Triple H, General Manager Mick Foley had finally had enough, sliding his right hand into his trusted Mr. Socko and applying the dreaded Mandible Claw to The Cerebral Assassin.

This Attitude Era-esque moment brought the WWE Universe in Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena to its feet before Stephanie saved her husband with a low blow to Foley, but longtime fans of The Hardcore Legend will be far less enthused about what happens next. Triple H and Stephanie don’t exactly forgive and forget, so one wonders if Foley’s days as Raw GM are now numbered.
Will “Heyman’s Theory of WrestleMania Relativity” ring true?



Quote:
Per Brock Lesnar advocate-turned-physicist Paul Heyman, “F-5 = Lesnar goes up, down goes Goldberg.” Heyman is known for hyperbole in certain instances, but after The Beast Incarnate finally got the better of the Universal Champion on the March 6 edition of Raw by way of that finishing maneuver, it’s much easier to believe that Lesnar’s bout with Goldberg at WrestleMania will be far different from the big men’s recent encounters at Survivor Series and Royal Rumble.

Indeed, Lesnar’s successful attack on Goldberg proved to be an appropriately stomach-turning twist for their rivalry en route to The Ultimate Thrill Ride. And as Lesnar ups his game in pursuit of redemption — not to mention the coveted Universal Championship — so, too, must Goldberg prepare for what could be his greatest battle yet.
Chris Jericho to expose the “real” Kevin Owens on "The Highlight Reel"



Quote:
Chris Jericho’s “The Highlight Reel” has featured some incredible guests since its 2003 inception — including Goldberg, The Rock, Shawn Michaels, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and even Kevin Owens — but Monday’s edition might be the most enlightening installment yet. After Owens betrayed him during “The Festival of Friendship,” the United States Champion is out to expose his former best friend for who he truly is and, as such, he has invited the “real” Kevin Owens to the set for an unconventional installment of his talk show.

What exactly does the curator of “The List of Jericho” have in store for The Prizefighter, and how might this unusual “Highlight Reel” change the landscape of their United States Championship Match at WrestleMania? Whatever happens, controversy is sure to follow.
Will Triple H’s attack keep Seth Rollins from WrestleMania?



Quote:
Seth Rollins made a surprising appearance on Monday’s Raw to get some pre-WrestleMania retribution against Triple H. Unfortunately for Rollins, The Cerebral Assassin was one step ahead, brutalizing the would-be “Kingslayer’s” recently injured knee with his own crutch.

Rollins is no less resolute in his quest to take down The Game at WrestleMania, turning The Ultimate Thrill Ride into the ultimate nightmare for the calculating WWE COO. However, given Triple H’s ruthless barrage on The Architect’s knee, one must imagine that the chances of seeing Rollins hit the ring in Orlando are slim at best.
Dana Brooke to bring her new attitude to Brooklyn, N.Y.



Quote:
Having finally had enough of being browbeaten by Charlotte Flair, Dana Brooke finally snapped on her mentor and delivered an unexpected beatdown to The Queen that indefinitely severed their association.

WWE.com reporters caught up with the powerhouse moments after the assault on Charlotte, and she revealed that her actions were “a long time coming” and that she’s “not finished with her yet.” How will Charlotte respond to the actions of her one-time protégé, and how might this new mindset alter Dana’s trajectory on The Road to WrestleMania? Plus, will Charlotte be distracted as she prepares to battle Bayley and Sasha Banks in a Raw Women’s Championship Triple Threat Match during The Ultimate Thrill Ride?

Don’t miss any of the action as Monday Night Raw emanates from Brooklyn, N.Y. at 8/7 on USA Network.

Well, if they let him on TV, good luck Xavier.

Oh and the Jericho/Owens stuff should be good. Looking forward to Strowman vs. Reigns but I really wish Strowman was doing more than just being a stop gap between Roman vs. Undertaker going into WrestleMania.

re: Raw Discussion Thread - 03/20 - No Sleep Till Brooklyn!

I may buy tickets to this week's RAW since some are still available last time I checked. The tickets are as low as $25.20. If it doesn't snow, I'll probably find my way to Barclays.

I hope I get to see Undertaker in person again. There's nothing like that feeling when his music hits. The place went crazy last year. I hope there's a Roman/Taker confrontation.

Last year, the crowd chanted "You fucked Chyna" to HHH when his promo was going on. I'd be disappointed if Brooklyn did not deliver on some type of messiness. I'm not sure if the chant made it to TV. But the crowd got so restless as the night wore on and started some weird chants. The wave was fun though.

I'm wondering if the gong will go off again or the lights go out during Reigns match with Braun. Or maybe Taker will be on this week and the go home show. Probably more likely he's on next week tbh.

If you though, hope he's there

If they dare to use the New Day they should put them on a backstage segment or in a previously recorded segment.

And honestly, does anyone cares about Dana?

Xavier needs to come out and challenge Del Rio to a Paige-pounding contest. Book it as the WM main event. The WWE wants mainstream attention, right?
