WWE Raw Results – September 24, 2018
Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
A limo pulls into the building, despite the closest gate being shut. Stephanie McMahon emerges and Baron wishes her a Happy Birthday and he starts to sing. Triple H comes out of the limo as well. Stephanie says that she can say whatever she wants to say to Baron right here.
Hunter figures it is better to leave.
Stephanie says that when Kurt went on vacation, she thought he would do the job that Kurt couldn’t. She expected him to take the lead and be in charge. Was it a good decision to put yourself in a Universal Title match. Baron says that he was provoked by The Shield.
Stephanie says that Baron cannot control things. She says that he is not leading and she tells him to find two tag team partners to face The Shield or Kurt Angle may be back from vacation a little sooner.
Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns make their way to the ring.
Dean says what you are looking at are the three workhorses in WWE. They may have lost a few battles, but they have never lost a war. As you can see, they are still standing. Roman says you can read off their resumes, but it would take all day. Roman says the simple fact is all they have to do is this (as Roman and Seth raise their title belts). Roman says these are the keys to the kingdom. That is why Brock Lesnar came back. That is why Baron Corbin is booking himself in championship matches. These will change your life. The fact is that the only men who deserve these championships are the ones standing in the ring.
Seth says this is about being the best. Braun wanted power so much that he recruited a couple of jackasses to team with him. Seth says the world’s largest substitute teacher thinks that The Shield is a problem. Stephanie told him to find a few partners to show The Shield who is boss. Baron, they are out here and they would love to show you how big of a problem they can be right now.
Baron Corbin’s music plays and he makes his way to the stage. Baron says that his boss, Stephanie is here and it is her birthday. He will not let Raw erupt into madness like it has the last few weeks. Baron says that his partners and he will be throwing them around like ragdolls so he will impress his boss. Baron says they will show who you really are. A couple of selfish individuals. No one likes any of you individually or as a team.
Baron brings out Braun Strowman with Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. They have their mics with them. Braun tells Roman to shine that belt up real nice because he won’t be wearing too long. As far as the Shield is concerned, he can see the cracks forming and it will be a matter of time before they implode. It will be the two of you against the four of them.
Seth wonders what Braun is talking about regarding his match.
Braun says that Dean is seeing the light. Dolph says that the Shield needs Dean, but Dean doesn’t need the Shield. Dolph says that he was on Smackdown with Dean when he was the WWE Champion and he did it on his own. They have everything and you have nothing.
Seth says this is ridiculous.
Drew says that he is brutally honest and some times the truth hurts. Last week, you pushed him to his limits and Drew says he was lucky to win that match. Drew says that Roman and Seth do not appreciate you. You deserve more.
Dolph says they probably call him Disposable Dean. Who did Seth beg to come back when Seth couldn’t beat him. What did you get out of it? Nothing. Braun was going to cash in his briefcase and what did you do? You sacrificed yourself for Roman. What did you get? Nothing. Seth is champion. Roman is champion. Dean is a sucker.
Seth says that Dolph is full of it.
Dolph says that Seth isn’t even letting Dean talk. Then he asks Seth how long did it take to replace Dean with Jason Jordan? A few weeks. Did you even check on Dean while he was out to see how he was doing.
Dolph points out that they are the tag team champions. At Crown Jewel, Braun will beat Roman for the Universal Championship. If you hang out with them, the Intercontinental Title is yours. What he said is absolutely true. It is not easy and it would be nothing short of treason to turn your back on them.
Roman tells Dolph to shut up and he says that the people did not pay their money to bump your gums, they paid their money to whoop your asses.
Baron gets between Dolph, Drew, and Braun and the ring. He says this is not happening now.
