Seth “Freakin” Rollins returns to WWE Raw


Seth “Freakin” Rollins, who hasn’t been seen since he interfered in the Main Event of WrestleMania 40 on Night Two, makes his way to the ring to an enormous reception. Rollins is clad in a white suit with a white fedora. The music stops, and the crowd loudly sings his theme song. Rollins bows before the crowd. They chant, “Welcome back!” Rollins is fired up and throws his fedora to Pat McAfee. Rollins says, “Corpus Christi… let me welcome you back to Monday Night Rollins!” Rollins is going to introduce them to their host for the evening. He is a visionary. He is a revolutionary. He is Seth “Freakin” Rollins.

The crowd starts to sing his theme song again. Rollins says he’s missed everyone. Rollins wants to cut to the chase since they want to sing all night. He’s back for one reason. He’s seen them all, faced them all, and done it all. Rollins got into this business not to be one of the best. Rollins got into this business to be the very greatest, best of all time. Rollins can’t do that without getting back the championship that he made, the World Heavyweight Championship.

The Money in the Bank briefcases are shown above the ring. Rollins says Money in the Bank is only a few short weeks away. Rollins can climb a ladder pretty well and is quite familiar with the contract. It is the fastest way for him to get back in the mix for a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship.

World Heavyweight Champion Damian Priest has something to say about that as he makes his way to the ring. Priest gets in the ring, and the crowd boos him. Priest says he’s not being sarcastic. He wanted to come out here to welcome Rollins back. Rollins looks great and looks healthy. It’s sincerely great to have him back. Priest says he’s been wanting some face-to-face time with him because he wanted to tell Rollins that he wanted to cash in the Money in the Bank contract on him. It was out of respect. That didn’t happen, and Priest is doing ok. It’s not Monday Night Rollins. It’s the show where they all rise for El Campeon.

Rollins cackles and says Priest had a long weekend. He almost lost a leg in Scotland. Rollins gets where he’s coming from. They’re actually a lot alike. They both made their names in groups. Priest made his name in the Judgment Day. Rollins made his name in the greatest group of all time, The Shield. They both held the Money in the Bank contract for a long time before cashing in for their first World Title at WrestleMania. The one thing that separates them is that at some point, Rollins grew a set. Rollins wants to be the greatest of all time. To have that legacy, he has to stand on his own two feet. Rollins has a question for Priest: what kind of champion does he want to be? What does Priest want his legacy to be in this industry? Does he want to be the greatest of all time or a footnote in the Judgment Day?

Priest says it’s a fair question, but he wants to remind Rollins of something. Priest was Rollins’ first challenger for the title. At the time, Rollins beat him because he was better than him. Times have changed. On Saturday, he almost lost his leg. People thought he’d be relinquishing the title, but the only thing he wants to relinquish is Rollins thinking he’s better than Priest. If Rollins wants to see what kind of champion he is, how about he forgets about the ladders and has a title match against him at Money in the Bank? Rollins asks if this is a trap. Priest insists that this is not a trap. The Judgment Day doesn’t know he’s out here. Does Rollins want a shot at Priest’s World Title or not? The crowd chants, “YES!” Rollins says, “Well, if it’s that simple, then I accept your challenge. Just remember this, Priest. As long as I’m around here, this show will always and forever be Monday Night Rollins!” Rollins walks off.

Later tonight, we’ll have a Triple Threat Money in the Bank Qualifying Match with “Main Event” Jey Uso, Rey Mysterio, and Finn Bálor competing for a spot in the match. The Women will also have a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match with IYO SKY, Kiana James, and Zelina Vega fighting for a spot. We’ll also see the brutal beatdown of Ricochet by Bron Breakker last week on Raw.

Raw General Manager’s Office

Earlier today, Chad Gable came into Raw General Manager Adam Pearce’s office with Otis, Maxxine Dupri, and Akira Tozawa. Gable says if it wasn’t for his #1 Disappointment, and the others, he’d have the Intercontinental Championship. Gable wants another shot. Pearce says Gable has had opportunity after opportunity, but the best thing for him is to go to the back of the line and win his way back to the title. Gable is not happy about that. He’s a leader and belongs at the front of the line. Gable tells Pearce to find him someone worthy. Pearce says he has the perfect opponent for him. Gable tells Pearce to line it up and make it official. Pearce looks pleased to make this official.

Back to live action, Chad Gable makes his entrance with Akira Tozawa, Otis, and Maxxine Dupri, who is on crutches now after this past Saturday’s mishap. Gable will find out who his worthy opponent is, next.

Bálor says he’ll cash in… on Cody Rhodes. Priest just wanted to make sure they’re on the same page. “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio is having trouble finding his purple cow vest.

Sami Zayn addresses what’s next for the Intercontinental Championship

WWE Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn’s comedy show is coming in July.

Zayn stands in the center of the ring, and the crowd chants, “Sami!” Zayn says he’s proud to walk into Corpus Christi still the Intercontinental Champion. This past Saturday at Clash at the Castle, Chad Gable didn’t make it easy. With all the personal stuff between them, it started because Zayn beat him in a wrestling match. Now after months of games and sneak attacks, it’s over because he beat him in a wrestling match. As far as Zayn is concerned, he is moving on from Chad Gable. It isn’t easy to move on from the Alpha Academy, but they have to do things on their own time. Zayn didn’t leave the Bloodline until he was ready. Jey Uso didn’t leave until it was his time. A loud “YEET” chant picks up. When Otis and the Alpha Academy are ready, they will leave Chad Gable, too.

Now, Zayn has to look forward and defend his Intercontinental Championship against anybody and everybody. Bron Breakker makes his way to the ring. Breakker grabs a microphone and sneers at the Intercontinental Champion. The crowd barks at Breakker. Zayn asks if Breakker really interrupted him just to stand there, or does he have something to say? Breakker says he doesn’t have to say much. Zayn knows why he’s out here. Zayn knows what he is capable of doing in this ring. Breakker has left a long list of bodies since being here. Zayn is next on his list because he is taking that Intercontinental Championship.

Zayn steps up to Breakker and holds the Intercontinental Championship up. Sheamus makes his way to the ring. Sheamus gets a good ovation. Sheamus tells Zayn to pump the brakes and calls him a fellow “Gingah ninja.” Sheamus has chased this title for years, putting on banger after banger. If Zayn is going to give opportunities for it, he should consider Sheamus. Sheamus says he respects Zayn a lot. When that opportunity arrives, he’ll do whatever it takes to get the title. Breakker shouts at Sheamus and asks if he’s going to act like he’s not standing here. Nobody cares about Sheamus and the list of titles he hasn’t won with the sob stories. They all know what happens when you get in Breakker’s way. Sheamus is in his way, and he’ll kick his ass. Sheamus asks what he’s going to do… put him on his stupid list? Sheamus says Breakker is cocky and on the run of a lifetime, but as far as the title goes, he has no skin in the game. Breakker is the new “kid.” Sheamus tells Breakker to go to the back of the line before he makes him. Breakker angrily stares at Sheamus.

Zayn says it sounds like they need to sort this out. Zayn is going to talk to Adam Pearce. Corpus Christi doesn’t want to see them talk it out. They want to see them fight it out later tonight. The crowd approves. Zayn walks off. Sheamus and Breakker continue to stare at each other.

The commentators promote the matches for next week’s Raw. There is still plenty of time in this show, at least five minutes.

Jey Uso is celebrating in the crowd, doing the YEET dance.

All of a sudden, the music cuts off. The lights start going out in the arena. The fireflies are out. A door is shown on the entrance ramp, reminiscent of when the late, great Bray Wyatt returned at WWE Extreme Rules in October 2022. The door bursts open, and a white light shines through before going out. A figure crawls through the doorway and cuts through the smoke, crawling like the character from “The Ring.” The figure is a female in a frightening mask. She stares at a lantern that is ominously lit. She points back.

The camera goes backstage with smoke still filling the stage. People are down on the ground, unconscious. A large figure in a bunny fright mask holds a cartoonish hammer that says, “Help!” In the Gorilla Position, sparks shoot from damaged equipment. A person is against the wall, which is covered in blood from his head being smashed against it. Braun Strowman is unconscious on the floor as well. A dreadlocked figure in a mask is shown calmly sitting on a desk amidst the carnage. Continuing backstage, we see a figure in a gas mask. Chad Gable is unconscious and bleeding from his head. We finally see Uncle Howdy standing there. Uncle Howdy walks by the man in a gas mask.

Uncle Howdy makes his way out into the arena, flanked by a cadre of terrifying characters. Uncle Howdy lifts up the lantern and poses with the people. Uncle Howdy growls, “We’re here,” and blows out the lantern.
