WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW - SEPTEMBER 5, 2016
Last Monday: WWE Universal Championship Main Event from last week's Raw.
Earlier Today: Stephanie is on the phone planning Kevin Owens' celebration. Mick Foley walks in and demands to know why she hasn't returned any phone calls or emails and that Triple H made him look like a fool last Monday. Stephanie asks him who he thinks he's talking to and reminds Stephanie of the first night she met him and Stephanie says she was embarassed by her husband. Foley says he believes her because if he doesn't that would make her a real good liar and a really bad person and he can't believe that.
Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. Raw this week comes to us from the Sprint Centre Arena in Kansas City, Missouri and we kick things off with Mick Foley and Stephanie McMahon in the ring and they welcome the new Universal Champion Kevin Owens who makes his way out to the ring
The crowd starts chanting "You Deserve This". Stephanie says she's glad he likes the celebration because he deserves it. Owens says Stephanie is right he deserves it but more importantly he deserves the Universal Champion and when Raw went off the air last week the fans were chanting "You Deserve This" and they were right but what he doesn't deserve is a crowd of idiots hijacking his show and all they're accomplishing is making the show about themselves.
Owens says the fans aren't great or special. He is great and special and doesn't need anyone to tell him. He's known since the moment he first stepped into the ring. Last week, he beat 3 superstars but at last minute Triple H showed up and gave him a nudge. He did 98% of the work but Triple H just gave him that small push putting him at the top and tonight Monday Night Raw is officially The KEvin Owens Show
Seth Rollins storms out to the ring and Owens demands to know why he's out here. Rollins tells Owens to shut up this isn't about him and demands to know how Stephanie could do this to him. Owens tells Rollins it IS about him. It's the Kevin Owens Show. Rollins says he has no problem with Rollins but tonight not even Triple H will be able to help him
Rollins accuses Foley of being in Stephanie's pocket but Foley says he's not in her pocket but has her back. Rollins says if they want to hitch their wagon to Owens he'll be the one to burn it to the ground and Triple H and Stephanie will be on their knees. Owens says since Rollins returned it seems The Architect has only been designing blueprints for failure
Rollins attacks Owens and Stephanie tells him he's suspended but Foley says no he's not. The crowd starts chanting "Foley!". Foley says this is Monday Night Raw they don't hand out suspensions when someone was wronged. They hand out rematches. When he was made General Manager he was told he'd be able to make matches and asks her to respect that and let him make a match. Foley makes it official. Seth Rollins will face Kevin Owens at Clash Of Champions in Indianapolis in three weeks.
Up Next: Bayley vs Charlotte
Backstage: Stephanie tells Foley he may have the authority to make matches but if he ever usurps her authority again he'll be out. Foley says he did it to prevent people from talking about her. Owens walks in and says Foley rewards Rollins by giving him a rematch after he attacked Owens. Foley says tonight Owens has a match against Sami Zayn. Chris Jericho walks in and demands to know who Foley thinks he is and how dare he disrespect Owens and calls Foley a stupid idiot asking if Rollins is a Holy Foley fan. Foley says this stupid idiot is putting Jericho in a match tonight against Seth Rollins
