Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Constable Baron Corbin Segment:
The Shield, The Dogs Of War and Constable Baron Corbin In-Ring Segment:
What you’re looking at are the three workhorses in WWE. They may have lost a few battles, but they have never lost a war. The Shield are still standing. You can read off their resumes, but it would take all day. The simple fact is all they have to do is raise their titles belts up in the air. These are the keys to the kingdom. That’s why Brock Lesnar came back. That’s why Baron Corbin is booking himself in championship matches. These will change your life. The fact is that the only men who deserve these championships are the ones standing in the ring. This is about being the best. Braun Strowman wanted power so much that he recruited a couple of jackasses to team with him. The world’s largest substitute teacher thinks that The Shield is a problem.
Corbin comes out to interrupt The Shield. Today is Stephanie’s birthday and Raw will not erupt into madness like it has the last few weeks. Corbin’s partners will be throwing The Shield around like ragdolls. The Shield are nothing more than a couple of selfish individuals. No one in the locker room likes any of them individually or as a team. The Dogs Of War joins the conversation. Strowman wants Reigns to shine that belt up real nice because he won’t be wearing it too long. As far as the Shield is concerned, he can see the cracks forming and it will be a matter of time before they implode. It will be the two of you against the four of them.
Rollins pokes fun at Strowman’s math game. Strowman says that Ambrose is seeing the light. The Shield needs Ambrose, but he doesn’t need them. Dolph Ziggler was on SmackDown when Ambrose was the WWE Champion and he did it on his own. Rollins and Reigns have everything, meanwhile Ambrose sitting in the ring with nothing around his waist. Drew McIntyre is brutally honest and some times the truth hurts. Last week, Ambrose pushed him to his limits and he was lucky to win that match. Reigns and Rollins doesn’t appreciate Ambrose. He deserves more. They probably call him Disposable Dean behind his back. What did Ambrose get out of helping Rollins at SummerSlam? Nothing. Strowman was going to cash in his briefcase and what did Ambrose do? He sacrificed himself for Reigns.
Ambrose is a sucker. Rollins says that Ziggler is full of it. Rollins is not letting Ambrose speak for himself. How long did it take to replace Ambrose with Jason Jordan? A few weeks. Did you even check on Ambrose while he was out to see how he was doing? At WWE Crown Jewel, Strowman will beat Reigns for The Universal Championship. It would be nothing short of treason to turn your back on them. Reigns wants Ziggler to shut up. The people did not pay their money to see The Dogs Of War bump their gums, they paid their money to The Shield their asses. Corbin says that this brawl won’t happen right now they’ll have to wait for The WWE Super Show-Down. Corbin and his partners are going to spoil The Shield’s reunion.
