WWE Monday Night RAW
Location: San Diego, CA
Date: October 26, 2015
Commentators: Michael Cole, JBL and Byron Saxton
We are live for Monday Night Raw! We are live from San Diego California! And we kick things off with The Authority! The COO HHH, Stephanie McMahon, and as you can see, the Director of Operations, Kane is not with them tonight. Michael Cole, Byron Saxton & JBL welcome us to Raw; we see what was possibly a match of the year candidate between The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar. There was blood, there were tables, and there was a point where the ring was ripped open, but Brock got his revenge, using a low blow and a third F5 to pick up the win. However, as the Deadman was getting up, the Wyatt Family had their way with this legend, and carried him away cross like. Stephanie says last night scores were settled and legends where made. Triple H talks about the triumphant return of Alberto Del Rio, who defeated John Cena to become the new United States Champion! We also saw the growth of new superstars, and leading that new generation, the man that beat the Demon Kane last night, the Undisputed Champion, Seth Rollins! And here comes the man! We see the match from last night, a match which both announcer tables actually survived and Seth won with the Pedigree, thus firing Corporate Kane as the DOO!
Seth, you have been the champion for a while now, from when you cashed in MITB briefcase and won the title, Triple H lists the names from Randy Orton, John Cena, Sting, Kane and many more, you have proven us right, Steph says that you have passed every test, finding a way to win much like my husband did. Hunter says that by taking Kane out of a job, you have made this company better, you have made us better, and you have made be proud kid! Seth hugs both of them and is honestly speechless for the first time ever. Last night at HIAC I did what I said I was going to do, keeping my title, ousting Kane as DOO and I would have never had this opportunity, if it wasn’t for two visionaries, Triple H and Stephanie! Give it up for The Authority! Seth, without a doubt you are the greatest superstar of all time and a sure fire hall of famer. But you have left us in a big predicament. You have beaten everyone! We now have to have people to earn their right to face the champion! We will take the winners from last night, put them in qualifying matches, and the winners of those matches will be put in a fatal 4-way and the winner of that will have earned the right to be beaten by Seth Rollins!
Roman Reigns comes out of nowhere. The Authority doesn’t look pleased. However, Roman did beat Bray Wyatt last night, so surely he would be in the running. He says that this has him sick, the fact that you belong in the WWE HOF? What? After tonight, you’re looking at the number one contender, and I’m taking that championship, believe that! Steph says let the games begin! Roman will kick this thing off, but we will find out who his opponent is up next!
Roman is still in the ring. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW SAN DIEGO! DON’T YOU DARE BE SOUR! CLLLLLLLLLLLLLAP FOR YOUR TWO TIME CHAMPS! AND FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL DUH POWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!!!! Ay yo E, you know what the biggest difference between the New Day and Roman Reigns? His greasy hair is booty! His style is not on fleek! The biggest difference is, we are champions, and he is not! Oh no! You see we, the New Day are putting things in their proper places. The Dudleyz, in the past, our brother Xavier Woods, in our hearts! And our opponents tonight, in the ground son! You might as well call me Harry Potter because I’m about to make some magic up in here! Because New Day Rocks! I love it!
Number One Contender Qualifier: Roman Reigns vs. Kofi Kingston (w/Big E)
This match is underway! Into the lockup and a headlock into a hammerlock back into the headlock off the ropes ducked but Kofi with the leapfrog! What a sequence! Kofi is doing somewhat of a jumping jack but with the unicorn horn only. Kofi back into the headlock off the ropes and a shoulder tackle by Roman. Roman then goes off the ropes, leapfrog and a punch followed by a swinging neckbreaker and Kofi goes to the outside as we cut to break.
Roman with a big suplex that sends Kofi back into the ring for a two count as we come back. Off the ropes but Kofi hangs on and hits an uppercut followed by a few more punches, Roman sidesteps him and hits a clothesline and another one that sends Kofi to the outside. Big E is dancing and thrusts in his general direction as Kofi attacks him from behind! Kofi with several kicks and stomps, then sending Roman face first into the apron before tossing him back into the ring. Kofi with some ground and pound and he puts the unicorn horn up before punching him in the corner followed by a big knee and he now puts a rest hold on. Roman tries to fight out of it and does, big headbutt but Kofi trips Roman back up. Kofi claps and goes up top, hitting a huge double axe handle for two! Kofi works on the arm of Roman, Roman fights out of this and hits somewhat of a suplex into a Rock Bottom combination. Roman with some punches and clotheslines, picking him back up and goes for a powerbomb but Kofi jumps out of it, trying to roll him over but Roman picks him up for a Samoan drop but Kofi fights out of it but eats a right hand! Roman now with clotheslines in the corner and tosses him across the ring but Kofi gets the boot up but Roman rolls him up and connects with a powerbomb but Kofi kicks out! What a match this has been! Roman is going for the Superman punch but it hits Big E instead, Kofi goes for Trouble in Paradise but Roman ducks and hits the spear and wins it!
Winner and advancing to the fatal 4-way main event: Roman Reigns! **** star match! I will say this, 24 hours removed from a HIAC match, Roman has really improved, although I feel Kofi carried him a little bit in this match since he was the fresher man.

Bray Wyatt is in the ring, for 25 years, The Undertaker has walked among the darkness and the light. He had no equal, they all feared him, grown men would tremble at his name. But last night the apocalypse showed itself, taking the soul of the mighty Undertaker, and can you feel it? Can you feel that? That wicked horrible feeling is in the air tonight, can you feel it? Last night was war, the bred horse of the apocalypse was made into war! I wanted to make something very clear, Roman Reigns, one day, you and I will face once again, but not until I am revitalized, and last night The Undertaker has become my resurrection! When you consume that kind of power there is no turning back, you are addicted! And right now as I speak, I feast on the soul of the Undertaker, and I want more, I need more and I will not stop until there is no more of the Undertaker, forever a memory, his bones on the ground as I ascend into the micro! Right now, somewhere, the Undertaker’s soul is being ripped to shreds, desecrated, piece by piece, bit by bit! So I want to ask everyone in this entire arena to bow their heads, I want everyone watching at home to put their hand on the television set, and give us a moment of silence to the man that lost his soul to me! Rest…In…Peace, Phenom!
Wait a minute! Here comes the Demon Kane! But wait a minute again! The lights go out, and when they come back on, the entire Wyatt Family are now in the ring!

Bray walks right into a chokeslam but the numbers, much like last night are too strong! The Wyatt’s are just taking Kane apart like a bunch of rabid dogs! The Wyatt’s stand tall! Just like last night, they carry Kane like Christ headed to the cross! But more importantly, this means both Brothers Of Destruction have been taken out within 24 hours! This is something that has not been done in a very long time!
We see a promo for WWE Breaking Ground! Which if you have not seen on YouTube by now, you can see it immediately following Raw on the WWE Network!
