WWE Raw Results – October 15, 2018

Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. 

Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler, and Drew McIntyre make their way to the ring.

Dolph says you are looking at the greatest three man group in WWE history.  Drew says they didn’t need a catchy name or matching tactical vests.  Braum says they proved it last week against the Shield and they will do it against anyone at any time.

We see what happened last week when they faced the Shield and Dean leaving the ring alone.

We see comments from Dean after Raw.  Dean says he doesn’t get it.  Maybe he doesn’t fit in anywhere.

Drew says he hates to say I told you so but I tould you so.  They did not beat the Shield, they broke the Shield.  Drew says he cannot imagine what Dean is thinking about and where does he belong in the Shield.  Seth and Roman have been the ones who benefitted from the relationship.  You have finally opened your eyes and the Shield have been shattered.

Braun says that at this rate, they won’t be around to have Roman’s back as he becomes Universal Champion at Crown Jewel.

Drew says there is the World Cup and after he beats Seth to qualify for the World Cup and he proves to everyone that he is the best in this world.

Dolph stops Drew and reminds him that he has a qualifying match against Dean Ambrose.  After he wins, maybe they will go head to head in the finals.

Drew says as good as Dolph is, you are no Drew McInytre.

Dolph says he agrees with Drew because he is the most consistent superstar.

Braun interrupts and says that at Crown Jewel, Lesnar and Roman are both going to GET THESE HANDS.

The music for The Shield plays and they make their way to the ring, at least Roman and Seth make their way to the stage.

Seth says he has some bad news.  They are not shattered or broken.  The Shield is alive and well.  They were in the back listening to them talking about who the best in the world are.  Seth says that when he wins tonight, he will prove to everyone that Seth Rollins is the Best in the World.

Dolph points out that we are listening to two thirds of the Shield.  Where is Dean Ambrose?  Dolph suggests that they don’t care where Dean is.  Dolph says he does not care if Dean shows up and he will take a forfeit.

Seth says that they know Dean very well and he works on Ambrose time.  He will show up.

Roman says the funny part is that you are worried about Dean when you should be worried about these titles.  Dolph and Drew are not getting close to these titles.  After Crown Jewel, Braun is going to the back of the line.

Seth says he has always liked Philadelphia.  The cheese steaks are fantastic, but Philly is a fighting town.  Why not have our match now.

We take a look back at the Bella Betrayal of Best Friend Ronda Rousey.

WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring.

Ronda says that you know that the Bellas betrayed her last week. Ronda says she wants an explanation. If you could at least do that and tell her why.

Nikki and Brie Bella make their way to the stage. Nikki tells Ronda that nobody paid to see you. Everyone paid to see the Bella Twins. You want an explanation, but you don’t deserve one. This is show business, not show friends. Brie says that Ronda is the one who disregarded everything that her and Nikki did for this business. They were not going to sit on the sidelines. Nikki says Ronda is the reason why they came back. Why are you here? You are a loser who doesn’t deserve it. Nikki says they made Diva mean something. Their show put more girls in the crowd. Nikki says that she has done more in the ring than Ronda ever will. Nikki says the title that you are holding would not exist without The Bellas.

Ronda and Nikki argue over who should talk and Nikki asks if Ronda is going to break their arms.

Ronda says she tried her best to be respectful. She knew that WWE was your territory first and she tried not to be judgmental even if everything the Divas era stood for made her sick to her stomach. You were doing the best you could with what you had. When you came running up to her after Wrestlemania, Ronda says she was excited that the Bellas were there for her and they could be the driving force in WWE together. Ronda says she was too idealistic and naive. You are the embodiment of a stereotype. DNB . . . Do Nothing Bellas. You were there not for her, but because there was a camera. You were so desperate for attention.

You leeched off the names of your men. You plagarized and diluted their move sets. You are waiting to be eviscerated like small pox. Ronda says that she could rip off their arms and beat them with it. The only thing that can hold her back is the referees and they are not good at holding her back. She says she will ruin The Bellas. She will make Bella into a four letter word.

Brie says that you think they are talentless and a disease? You call us Do Nothing Bellas. It sounds like you are jealous. The word Bella did more last week than your entire time in WWE. They are the groundbreakers. Nikki says they have broken down more barriers than Ronda. You don’t even compare.

Ronda says that her entire career, she has knocked down doors. She did in judo, Strikeforce, UFC, and now in the WWE. The only door you knocked down was the door to John Cena’s bedroom and he eventually threw you out of that same exact door. Are you going to come to the ring for an ass whipping or does she have to come up there to do it.

The Bellas start to walk to the ring but instead they stop to dance and pose for Ronda. Security comes out to get between Ronda and The Bellas. Ronda destroys security as the Bellas leave.

We see footage from last week when Kurt Angle got into the World Cup.

Bobby Roode and Chad Gable tell someone they like the new look and Kurt is in vacation mode still. Chad wants a hat like Angle while Bobby likes the shirt and Chad jumps in with a GLORIOUS.
