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. 
Britt Baker: Somebody Is Going To Pay A Lot Of Money When My Contract Is Up, I'm Worth More Than MJF

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.
