Monday Night Raw was at the Rosemont Horizon, now called Allstate Arena, I was there in attendance last night. The crowd was electric at times, but the crowd was almost dead during certain points of matches. The Main Event Taping match was Curtis Axel and Titus O’neil, that match was alright to witness live, i wish their was more fan support for Axel, Axel and Titus was both getting booed out of the arena, Titus picked up the victory over Axel.. Before that you have Tony Nese taking on Lince Dorado, Lince picked up the victory.
Raw started off with the Billion dollar Commissioner Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley, She put the fans inside of the Allstate Arena when they chanted CM Punk at her when she said “if you can keep this going 2:15 you would last one second more than CM Punk thank you” then Seth Rollins comes out talking about Triple H that Stephanie is keeping him at home instead of being the Cerebral assassin that he once was. Then Seth stated that she wanted to fight strowman for what he did to him last week on Raw, Roman Reigns came out saying that he wants to fight strowman, then Stephanie teased a Shield Reunion on Raw but stated Roman would be facing an opponent of her choice for the United States Championship, while Seth Rollins would be facing Braun Strowman. Stephanie also announced that Raw will be starting with the WWE Tag Team Championship rematch between New Day and Cesaro and Sheamus.
New Day got the chicago fans rocking, and the fans continue to stay hot when Cesaro came out to the ring, Sheamus got booed from the start of the match till the end of the match, i loved the unicorn stampede and the european uppercut stampede that cesaro and sheamus did. Sheamus and Cesaro retain the tag team titles. This was an entertaining match to watch live. The cruiserweight matches i am going to talk about in one spot, I love Rich Swann and Jack Gallaher and TJ Perkins, Neville has evolved and will become a badass heel in the cruiserweight division Neville defeated TJ perkins with a schoolboy pin, and then after Rich Swann interview with the beautiful carly caruso he attacked swann and hitting him with the red arrow to his back.
I am starting love what WWE is doing with Braun Strowman, he is slowly going to become a monster heel that wwe needs to have he is slowly getting goldberg style chants. He wrecked house when he interfered during the shinning stars and bo dallas and darren young tag team match before the Seth Rollins and Strowman match. Now with the woman, Chicago loves Bayley, they also showed love to Charlotte. That segment was a good segment and the match could have been a little bit better, but atleast it wasn’t as bad as the squash match with Nia Jax.
Main Event, Roman Reigns defeated Kevin Owens to retain his united states championship, despite Chris Jericho trying to screw over reigns, but Seth Rollins had his brother in arms back during the main event. Owens and Rollins both traded dx chops toward each other. Overall i loved my experience at Monday Night Raw. I can’t wait to see how Chicago is for Smackdown tonight.
