Demon Kane hit a choke-slam and Tombstone Piledriver on Seth Rollins last night at Night of Champions after his match with Sting. What is Kane’s ultimate goal with attacking Rollins? Is he after a title shot or is just making The Architect suffer the only reward the Demonic one needs? After Kevin Owens took Ryback’s Intercontinental Title last night, will the Big Guy be looking for payback on Raw? With Charlotte now crowned as the new Divas Champ, who will be gunning for her belt? What do the Dudley Boyz have planned for New Day after the Tag Team Champions held on to their title via disqualification? Now that John Cena has the U.S. Title once again, can we expect an open challenge?
All this and more tonight on Monday Night Raw! Stick with us right here for live updates and video highlights of all the action coinciding with the USA Network broadcast at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).
* The Wyatt Family opens the show but is soon confronted by Roman Reigns. Roman challenges Bray to send Braun Strowman and Luke Harper away and fight him one-on-one. Bray asks them to leave the ring and he and Roman go at it. It’s not an official match, but rather just a fight. Roman hits Bray with a Superman punch, but this brings in Luke and Braun. Dean Ambrose comes out to help Roman. Strowman works over Ambrose and Reigns, and Luke and Braun join in the fun. Randy Orton now comes out to even things up against the Wyatt’s. It takes Orton, Ambrose and Reigns to run Braun and the rest off.
* Corporate Kane and Seth Rollins talk backstage. Kane says he’s been recovering and knows nothing about what happened to him at Night of Champions last night. Kane says he’s arranged for his rematch with John Cena for the U.S. Title to take place tonight.
* Neville, Lucha Dragons (Sin Cara, Kalisto) vs. Stardust, The Ascension (Viktor, Konnor) aka The Cosmic Wasteland – Kalisto with a Solida del Sol on The Ascension for the finish.
* Rollins freaks out backstage to Stephanie McMahon and HHH about Corporate Kane’s return and the rematch with Cena. The Authority didn’t seem to know Kane was here or set up the match with Cena, but they tell Rollins this is a good thing and to just focus on winning his title back and they’ll take care of Kane.
* Ryback vs. Bo Dallas — Intercontinental Champ Kevin Owens ringside for guest commentary. A meathook clothesline and Shellshock finishes Dallas. Owens ambushes Ryback after the match, but it ultimately run off with title in hand.
* Ric Flair comes out as a proud father to talk about his daughter Charlotte winning the Divas Title at Night of Champions. The Nature Boy says it was the proudest moment of his life and he introduces the new Divas Champion to the ring. She’s accompanied by her Team PCB teammates, Becky Lynch and Paige. A jealous Page spoils the party and berates her teammates. Page tells Charlotte she wouldn’t even be there if it weren’t for her old man and makes her exit. This brings out Nikki and Team Bella. Nikki welcomes Charlotte to her world where when you’re on top everyone is jealous.
* Charlotte (c) vs. Brie Bella — After taking a beating on her injured leg, Charlotte finishes Brie with a Spear, then a Figure-8 submission.
* Mark Henry vs. Sheamus — Sheamus finishes Henry with a Brogue Kick. Mr. Money In The Bank says after the match it’s just a matter of time before he becomes the WWE Heavyweight Champion.
* Steph and HHH run into Corporate Kane backstage. He plays dumb to them about Demon Kane at Night of Champions as well. Steph asks Kane to give his Demon Kane mask back that was in the case backstage. He says he’ll help them look for it but he has nothing to do with it. Kane sold it well. Funny.
* Paige runs into Nattie backstage who tells her the only one standing in Paige’s way is Paige.
* The Ascension, Rusev vs. Dolph Ziggler, New Day — Ziggler gets distracted with New Day’s trombone player, gives him a super kick, but when he turns around Rusev gives Ziggler a super kick for the finish.
* Naomi vs. Natalya — Naomi stops Nattie with a Rear View.
* Cesaro vs. Big Show — Knockout punch from Big Show ends it for Cesaro. After the match Big Show says this was a message to Brock Lesnar who he will be facing at Madison Square Garden a week from Saturday.
* John Cena (c) vs. Seth Rollins (U.S. Championship) — Rollins comes off the ropes on Cena, but Cena rolls him over, picks him up for an AA for the finish. After the match Corporate Kane sends him a message on the Titantron, then Demon Kane pops up through the ring and takes Rollins back to hell with him. Smoke comes up through the hole. I like it. Pretty cool.
