Sean Raw Sapp (6/12): Brock Lesnar Returns, Huge Brawl, Cass Attacked, Emma Returns

Opening segment 

  • Paul Heyman is out and cuts a really good promo on Samoa Joe, saying none of the other Samoans want anything to do with them.
  • Heyman is so good at making a story out of nothing.
  • Joe comes out and attacks Lesnar!
  • A great locker room clearing brawl goes down.
  • Samoa Joe hit that old cheating ass shuffle side kick from WWE Here Comes The Pain on PS2. That shit isn't fair. 
'Sick' Nick Mondo To Be Inducted Into GCW Deathmatch Hall Of Fame

Elias Samson defeated Dean Ambrose

  • The Waterboy came out 19 years ago, and that'll be one of the more timely references on WWE commentary. 
  • I appreciate Ambrose adding to his arsenal with a Fisherman's suplex, even though this match was weak.
  • How couldn't have Samson scouted the rebound lariat?
  • Why is Ambrose chasing Maryse? What's he gonna do? Miz interfered, by the way.
  • Samson creamed Amrbose with a couple of knees and won.

Backstage crappenings

  • These Goldust promos are pretty good, but the R-Truth ones are super doody. 
  • Angle is mad at Miz backstage, and Maryse is still mad at Miz. She avoids a kiss.
  • The Hardys cut a terrible, written promo.
  • We got a Bayley interview. I don't hate the direction of her being overly nice, and refraining from unnecessary violence. 
  • Neville attacks Rich Swann, runs down Akira Tozawa and the Cruiserweight division in a strong promo.
  • The Noam Dar, Anderson and Gallows commercial was only missing a "NERD"

Cedric Alexander defeated Noam Dar

  • Noam Dar confronts Cedric Alexander backstage, and Alicia Fox is on Facetime. I loved this.
  • Quick squash. Alicia is on Facetime the entire time. GREAT

Rollins/Wyatt Promo

  • I wish they'd go full "Wyatt thinks he's a god" thing. He's mad about Rollins saying his name in vain.
  • Rollins finds this ridiculous.

Apollo Crews (w/ Titus O'Neil) defeated Kalisto

  • Tozawa is ringside.
  • This is a good, short match.
  • Crews gets a nice counter and powerbomb win,
  • Tozawa has great body language and facial expressions.

Sasha Banks, Dana Brooke & Mickie James defeated Alexa Bliss, Emma, Nia Jax


  • "Hey Alexa. No matter how fucking stupid and out of the way it is, mention that the other brand is having a ladder match Sunday"
  • They write Nia Jax's promos just like Corbin's
  • Emma is back. Then Sasha comes out. Six woman tag.
  • This is really uneventful other than seeing how bad Dana and Nia are, and Mickie's awesome Thesz Press tope.
  • Alexa leaves Emma hanging. Sasha wins. 

Heath Slater & Rhyno defeated The Miz and Dancing Bear (w/ Maryse)


  • Miz tries to recruit Heath Slater backstage, but Slater wants a title shot. They'll have a tag match instead, with Miz finding a partner. 
  • It's the dancing bear!! It gets a great ovation.
  • It wasn't Dean Ambrose, after Miz attacks. 
  • A second bear comes in and hits Dirty Deeds, but then Miz runs into Maryse. She mad. 
  • Dirty Deeds on Miz. Ambrose puts Slater on Miz. 

Anderson & Gallows defeated Enzo and Cass

  • Cass is laid out again, and The Revival are in the background scampering away. 
  • Cass puts up a valiant effort and sells his previous injury well.
  • Anderson and Gallows recover and beat Enzo and Cass.
  • Big Show makes the save after the match. Cass sees and he's not happy. 
  • Enzo asks Show if he did it. Great promo work from Enzo. 

WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
2 out of 3 falls
Sheamus & Cesaro (c) drew The Hardy Boyz


  • Super quick pinfall from Sheamus
  • A commercial break at 10:55 EST
  • For Matt Hardy's physical limitations, he's learned to adapt and work through them.
  • Twist of Fate, 1-1.
  • Sheamus hits that SICK knee. That should be his finish.
  • I love a tag title match being the main event. Why not? It's a damn title.
  • The match breaks down after a Swanton and the ref counts both teams out.
