The show started as the Steel Cage hanging over the ring was shown. As we know, Y2J Chris Jericho was going to face Bray Wyatt in a still cage match tonight. Talking about the feud, we cannot tell you the story of this feud, because there was no such. The Miz made his return two months ago, when he was cutting a promo on himself, Chris Jericho appeared to shock everyone. Jericho came out, did not say anything and knocked Miz out with the Code Breaker. Before Jericho could cut a long promo, Bray Wyatt along with Luke Harper and Eric Rowan appeared. They attacked Jericho and beat him down. But the question was; why? Why exactly Jericho was attacked by Bray Wyatt? The feud was quite lame. These two athletes faced each other at Battleground pay per view event for the first time where Jericho came out victorious. They faced each other at Summerslam too where Luke Harper and Eric Rowan was banned from the ring side. In this side, Bray Wyatt came out victorious. Tonight, these two athletes clashed in a Steel Cage match and hopefully, this match would be the end of this feud.
Tonight’s Monday Night Raw was addressed as ‘The Season Premier of Raw’. Features of the show were shown; Jerry Springer had been announced as the host of Bella Twins confrontation. They showed a small footage on the rivalry of the Bella Twins. The footage from two weeks ago was shown where Nikki Bella loathed her anger on her sister Nikki Bella and attacked her. A rematch from Summerslam between Randy Orton and Roman Reigns was also announced. The continuation of the feud between Brock Lesnar and John Cena would also be a part of the night. Chris Jericho and Bray Wyatt would collide in the kick off match of the night inside a steel cage.
Match 1 – Bray Wyatt defeated Chris Jericho in a Still Cage Match. Excellent match, such a match is a gem for any show. Jericho looked to be injured by his right knee during the match and Bray Wyatt took the advantage of Jericho injured right knee. Wyatt won the match by escaping the cage through the cage door. After the match, Wyatt continued the assault on Jericho and beat him down.
Backstage Kane and Seth Rollins were shown where both were really excited about the excellent kick off of Monday Night Raw. Triple H joined the discussion. He said that this was the season premiere of Monday Night Raw, which meant that they were going to make history. Randy Orton joined them too. He said that he was the only main eventer standing in that room, neither Kane nor Seth Rollins were fit for main event. So he wanted to do something terrible to Roman Reigns, something similarly to what Seth Rollins did to Dean Ambrose. Triple H said that Randy Orton had his permission to do whatever he desired to Roman Reigns.
WWE Intercontinental champion Dolph Ziggler was seen standing inside the ring. Michael Cole announced that Dolph Ziggler would face The Miz for the WWE Intercontinental championship in two weeks at Night of Champions. Ziggler started things off by saying last week was a very controversial week at Hollywood. A several number of celebrities got their personal devices hacked via cloud, and a lot of sensitive pictures really came out in the limelight.
Dolph Ziggler continued by saying that this type of invasions of privacy was reprehensible, no one, not A listers, not B listers, not even D list celebrities deserved to be disrespected like that. But maybe one D list celebrity and he said that the might know about whom he was talking about; The Miz. Ziggler said that he had some very interesting photos in his hand of the Miz and he thought it would be a crime if he did not show those photos to the fans right now. Ziggler requested the fans to look at the big screen where the exhibition was going to take place.
The first picture of the Miz was shown where Miz was standing in front of bathroom mirror during his facial. Miz was wearing underpants only. His hands were covering something between his two legs. Ziggler said that he did not know what he was covering actually, he said if the fans thought that was weird, they were going to get a little more weird.
The next photo was quite funny as well. The Miz was shaving was his chest in front of the bathroom mirror. Ziggler said that he thought Miz performed waxing but it might have been painful enough having to look at himself in the mirror everyday so he….. (maybe he was about to say something after that, but he forgot his line I think). Ziggler proceeded to the next picture by saying if the fans thought that this picture was bad he had one more picture which was worst among all.
Before Ziggler could show the picture the Miz appeared along with Damien Sandow. Miz said that it was an outrageous invasion on his privacy. He was invading his personal life. Those photos were done for a medical reason and Ziggler would not understand them, so he wanted him to understand something, his people would sue him or anybody among the fans who would try to republic those photos. He promised Ziggler if he proceeded with this any further, he wold make sure that Ziggler would not work in this town again.
Ziggler said if he said that he would never work in this town again, he did not know about it. But he would not hesitate to show the last photo and he pointed to the big screen. The final photo was shown where Miz was standing naked and Sandow was spraying something in Miz’s buttock.
Ziggler kept mocking them. Miz asked Sandow to attack Ziggler. Sandow went inside to attack Ziggler, Ziggler hit a drop kick on Sandow. He tried to get Miz and miz escaped. As Sandow stood up, Ziggler nailed him with the Zig Zag. Miz quickly went inside the ring, but as he saw Ziggler was prepared for him he slid out slowly. Miz escaped slowly and Sandow joined him. Ziggler taunted him with the Intercontinental championship title.
Match 2 – AJ Lee and WWE Divas champion Paige defeated Rosa Mendes and Natalya. These types of tag team matches are really interesting to see where two enemies are forced to team up with each other. Paige started the match and he did not want to tag AJ. Paige kept on fighting alone and dominating the match. Suddenly, AJ grabbed her from behind and forcefully tagged herself. She went inside and locked Rosa Mendes into the Black Widow submission maneuver. Rosa Mendes tapped out and AJ picked up the victory for his team. When AJ and Paige stood face to face, AJ took the Divas championship title away from Paige. Paige wanted the title back as she ordered AJ to hand over the title. AJ Lee kissed the championship and handed over the Divas championship title to Paige. Paige took the title and kissed the championship too with. AJ Lee smiled and left the ring.
Backstage Chris Jericho was seen receiving medical treatment. Randy Orton attacked him from behind. Orton beat down Jericho and seemed like Jericho’s injured knee was hurt during this attack. So they are planning for a Chris Jericho – Randy Orton feud. Undoubtedly, such a feud would be very interesting to see.
Paul Heyman was seen standing inside the ring. He started in his usual style. He said that yet though he walked through the valley of Cenation, he feared no thuganomics for he was the advocate of the beast, the conqueror, the reigning, defending undisputed WWE Heavyweight champion of the World Brock Lesnar.
Heyman said that his client had authorized him to come here to disseminate some confidential information and he wanted to deliver this warning as if he were up in the face of the hero of the fans John Cena.
John Cena interfered as his music hit. John Cena came out to the arena. John Cena entered the ring, he took a little time and started. He said that there was nothing to be worried about for Heyman, he just wanted to stretch everyone’s imagination. Heyman wanted to say something on Cena’s face so he was over there in front of him. He wanted Heyman to speak out.
Heyman said that was why he told Brock Lesnar, until Summerslam Cena was the greatest champion of all time. In case a special kind of man to be confronted by the truth, the truth to be told by the greatest advocate in the WWE and he pointed himself. His client Brock Lesnar thought that he would be in the ring and he was there, so Brock Lesnar authorized Heyman to give Cena some inside information.
Paul Heyman said that it was John Cena’s lucky night because Paul Heyman was going to tell him how to beat Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions. Cena smiled and said that he knew how to beat Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions and he had no secret strategy about how to beat Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania and nobody knew where Undertaker was in six months. Brock Lesnar defeated John Cena at Summerslam and Cena said ‘Let’s go Again’. At Night of Champions his strategy would be simple, ‘Never Give Up’. This would be his playbook and he doubted if Brock Lesnar could read it. But he could deliver his massage to him, he said that he would see him at Night of Champions.
Paul Heyman laughed and said if it was him or Cena could not help but be John Cena. He said that was his biggest problem; he lived to be John Cena. He came out to the show just to hear people chanting his name, ‘Let’s go Cena’. But when Brock Lesnar stepped into the ring, Brock Lesnar did not hear anybody but three people; one, the referee who had the power to disqualify him, two, Paul Heyman who strategize his victories, and three, the sufferings of his victims like John Cena suffered from Brock Lesnar’s hands at Summerslam.
But Heyman was there to tell Cena how to beat Brock Lesnar and it was very simple. All he had to do was to give him the temptation. Cena worked his a** off to make these people happy for all these years, but they did not hesitate to chant’ ‘Cena sucks’. Heyman kept chanting Cena sucks as came forward to him in anger. Heyman said that it got to him. He had to respect it when someone like Heyman said Cena sucks, but what happened when the fans said it. What happened an unemployed ugly big mouth told ‘Cena sucks’. Heyman wanted to him to told them ‘Shut Up’ only once. He wanted him to told the fans to Shut Up right then.
Heyman wanted Cena to show it how much he hated it when fans said ‘Cena Sucks’. Heyman insulted the fans and their hometown for saying ‘Cena Sucks’. Heyman requested Cena to say it only once. He wanted to say him what it actually felt like when they said Cena sucks. He did not have to give his soul to him, he just wanted to him to lose his concept of Hustle, Loyalty and Respect. And then when he gave in the hatred deep inside your soul, only then he could be the one who beat the one in 21 – 1 or then he could beat the one of many victims that failed in the hands of the conqueror Brock Lesnar. His client would not mind saying him this, because Heyman was believing him but his client Brock Lesnar said that he just did not have it in him…..
