MONDAY NIGHT RAW

LIVE VIEWING PARTY

On tonight's episode:

the only match they've advertised
is one you probably don't care about!

HOORAY!

Enzo & Big Cass vs Sheamus & Cesaro

winner gets a title shot at WrestleMania!

and we get to pretend that the current state
of the Tag Team Division isn't an abysmal wreck!

YAY!

ALSO:

ROMAN REIGNS IS PROBABLY PISSED

who will be sacrificed to the Big Dog?
(probably Braun Strowman)
(YAY!)

HERE WE GO.

We start out with Brock Lesnar.

He comes to the ring and commentary puts over his match with Goldberg at Mania.

Heyman is talking now.

He says that Brock F-5'd Goldberg last week and Goldberg does the thumbs down gesture.

The crowd starts chanting Goldberg, Paul says he's not here, so shut up.

He says that he and Brock have been coming up with a new strategy.

Basically, every time Brock faces Goldberg, Goldberg hits his two finishers and wins.

But it's gonna be different this time. You see, this time, it's gonna be Brock hitting his one finisher and he's gonna win.

A brand new strategy.

He works in "Down Goes Goldberg" in there a lot.  Guess that's part of the marketing now.

The promo is over and nothing happened.

Backstage with Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon.

Steph says she's gonna teach Mick a few things.

First lesson, Mick has until the end of the night to find one persona and fire them.

He doesn't want to do it.

SASHA BANKS vs DANA BROOKE

Brooke takes control using her power for a while, but Sasha sneaks a win by reversing a fireman's carry into a rollup.

The whole thing lasts maybe a minute and a half.

WINNER: Sasha Banks

After the match, Charlotte gets in the ring and starts berating Dana and Dana FLIPS THE FUCK OUT.

She beats up Charlotte and Charlotte runs away.

The crowd likes it.

Dana Brooke is over as a fiery babyface.

Who'd'a thunk it?

WHOSE YARD IS IT, ANYWAY?

The feud where everything's made up, and the boos don't matter.

AKIRA TOZAWA & TJ PERKINS
    vs BRIANK KENDRICK & TONY NESE

Tozawa starts oiut against Kendrick, he yells a lot and hits a suicide headbutt.

Nese tries to get involved, gets a hurricanrana from TJP off the apron.

COMMERCIAL

Oh yeah, and by the way, tomorrow on 205 Live:

So that could be very good.

Anyway back from the break and Kendrick is in control.

Tozawa fights back with vicious forearms, but can't make the tag, as Kendrick has pulled TJP off the apron.

Then Nese gains control with a bodyscissors for a while, but Tozawa escapes and makes the tag to TJP.

He takes it to Nese, hits a springboard DDT,

but Kendrick breaks up the pinfall.

Tozawa runs in to kick Kendrick out of the ring, but Nese shoves TJP into Tozawa, who falls out of the ring.

Nese rolls up TJP and gets the pin with a fistful of tights.

WINNER: Nese & Kendrick
