    Pre-Raw Commercial

    2 On 3 Handicap Match bewteen Ambrose and Cena vs Orton, Kane and Rollins tonight!

    Raw Starts

    Video

    Recap of Ambrose winning the main event last week on Raw.

    In Ring Segment

    Trip, Kane, Orton and Rollins out in their suits, heading to the ring with the HIAC hanging low over the ring.

    Trip – Welcome to Monday Night Raw. In what I’m sure will be an epic night, a night The Authority can be proud of. Proud of all of you. Tonight these three will compete in this ring in a 3 On 2 Handicap Street fight against Cena and Ambrose. Should Ambrose and Cena make it through tonight, then hell is hanging over their heads. Sunday they will go straight to hell. Hell In A Cell to be exact. The most ominous and destructive structure ever designed in the WWE. Unspeakable things will happen in this cell on Sunday and you can see them all for just $9.99. Take it from someone who’s been inside HIAC, it changes your life. It’s not the type of match you win, but I must say I’ve won more HIAC matches than any other man alive. But that’s not my point. It’s not the kind of match you win, it’s the kind of match you survive. This Sunday this cell will put an end to two of WWE’s most heated rivalries. In one cell is will be the face of the WWE, Randy Orton facing off against a 15 time WWE Champ, John Cena! (heat) In the other HIAC match it will be the unstable Dean Ambrose (pop) competing against Mr. MITB Seth Rollins. (heat)

    Rollins – You know Hunter, I really like that nickname, that moniker, actually. Mr. MITB has a great ring to it…

    “You sold out!” chants.

    Rollins – Mr. MITB has always had a great ring to it, but I have thoughts on a new nickname and I wanted to get your thoughts, all your thoughts actually. Undisputed future of the WWE? Got a nice ring to it, right? (heat) What? What? The word here is future, something Dean Ambrose doesn’t have after I am done with him the main event this Sunday!

    Orton grabs the mic from Rollins’ hands.

    Orton – Seth, I’m sorry, but the true main event is going to involve a couple of Superstars who have been around the WWE longer than a hot cup of coffee. You heard me, I’m going to beat John Cena at HIAC this Sunday and end the decade long rivalry once and for all.

    Trip – You’re both right. You’re both in the main event, it’s a double main event. While the whole world wants to see Rollins destroy Ambrose in HIAC, which he will,what I’m going to say now might put your match over the top Randy, because it won’t just be about putting an end to a decade long rivalry, no, it will be about opportunity. The winner of your match with Cena will receive an opportunity with WWE WHC Brock Lesnar.

    Orton – Today is turning out to be a very good day indeed. Hunter, I’m going to make you so proud, unlike Kansas City whose Royals haven’t won a Championship in 29 years! (heat) Any you won’t win one this year, and probably won’t for another 29 years. (serious heat) You watch, I will beat Cena, and face Brock, and will beat him too.

    Chants and rumblings for the Royals, not really paying attention to what’s being said in the ring.

    Trip – Randy, I know you will make me proud. I know Seth Rollins will make me proud. I know Kane will make me proud, not only here tonight, but this Sunday at HIAC, all of you will me proud, The Authority proud, unlike all of you, The Authority always wins! (Trip smirks) And that is best for business!

    Trip’s music plays, then fire erupts and Kane’s music plays.

    1. Boston Red Sox



    Lou Lucier, who was the oldest surviving former Red Sox player, has died at the age of 96.

    The team says Lucier had a stroke earlier this month and died on Saturday.

    A right-handed pitcher, Lucier played parts of three major league seasons during World War II with the Red Sox and Philadelphia Phillies. In all, he was 3-5 with a 3.81 ERA in 33 games.

    #6 IBF, #14 WBA heavyweight contender Steve Cunningham (28-6, 12 KOs) easily defeated the very slow and hulking 278 pound Nate Visinia (10-1, 8 KOs) by a 7th round stoppage on Saturday night at the 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia.

    The fight was halted after the 7th round by the advice of the ringside doctor due the 30-year-old Visinia having taken too much punishment. Visinia was bleeding from the mouth the last several rounds, and getting hit far too much. His lack of hand speed and his slow foot movement made him an easy target for the 38-year-old Cunningham.

    Brad Keselowski refused to be knocked down -- not by Matt Kenseth, who jumped him from behind after a disastrous race at Charlotte, and not by garage-wide condemnation over his post-race meltdown.

    He kept his head up and arrived at Talladega Superspeedway determined to shake off a bad week that earned him a $50,000 fine from NASCAR and moved him to the edge of elimination in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

    Only a win would keep his title hopes alive.

    Only the toughest of drivers could tune out everything that had happened and ignore the weeklong chorus of criticism from his peers.

    Keselowski pulled it off Sunday with an improbable victory that moved him into the third round of the Chase. He used a push from Team Penske teammate Joey Logano on a restart in overtime, and then got last-lap coverage from, who else? Kenseth.

    In the 2nd round, Donaire staggered Walters with a big left hook to the head in the final seconds of the round.

    Walters also knocked Donaire down in the 3rd round with a big right uppercut to the head. Donaire was cut on the side of his left eye in that round.

    Russian Tennis Federation President Shamil Tarpischev has been fined $25,000 by the WTA Tour and suspended from tour involvement for a year for questioning Serena and Venus Williams' gender in comments on Russian television last week.

    Tarpischev appeared on the Russian late-night show "Evening Urgant" alongside former WTA player Elena Dementieva last week. When Dementieva was asked what it was like to play against the Williams sisters, Tarpischev jumped in and referred to them as the "Williams brothers," according to multiple reports.

    After a back-and-forth with the show host and Dementieva, who did not laugh at the comment, Tarpischev reportedly continued: "It's frightening when you look at them. But really you just need to play against the ball."

    Welcome to WNW’s live coverage of Main Event!

    Michael Cole and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show as the ring is set up for MizTV. The Miz makes his way to the ring. The Miz will challenge Sheamus for the United States Championship in two weeks at Hell in a Cell.

    Miz grabs a mic and says thank you. You saw it right there. Two weeks ago on Raw, I beat Sheamus. Last night on Raw, spoiler alert, I beat Sheamus again. Yet there’s no gold around my waist. I’m not going to complain about it. Instead, I’m going to welcome the champ to the ring. Damien Sandow comes out dressed as Sheamus with a toy belt and all. Miz says before you get aggressive, it’s been confirmed that you will defend the belt against me at the PPV.

    Sandow/Sheamus says he came out here for a fight fella. But I didn’t come out here for a fight against you. No, you own me every time I step in this ring with you. It’s bad enough that you’re better looking and that you’re more talented than me in every single way possible. I’m here to say you are a better fighter than me. Sandow sings Sheamus’ theme song and calls Miz a better fighter again. Sandow says he is better than me, just like he is better than the entire WWE Universe. Miz thanks Sandow. Miz raises up the toy US Title and Sheamus actually comes down to the ring this time.

    Sheamus grabs a mic. Sandow acts as Sheamus’ stunt double. Sheamus says his is way bigger than yours. Great show, you are quite the laugh. But the fact that you think you deserve the US Title for doing absolutely nothing is ridiculous. Miz says the fact that I’ve beat you twice means that I have done something. And I’m an A-list movie star, my talents speak for itself. Sheamus says you see Miz, I love this. Look at this Sheamus hair. He looks just like me. But I’ll be honest with you Miz. You know Miz, I can be funny too. It can be a different type of funny though… Sheamus clotheslines Sandow and Miz rolls out of the ring. Sheamus brogue kicks Sandow to end the segment.

    Tyson Kidd makes his way to the ring with Natalya at his side. We see footage from last week of when Kidd beat Swagger on Main Event. Kidd cuts a promo saying that he wears the pants in the family and he will prove he’s more than just Nattie’s husband. R-Truth makes his way to the ring.

    Former WBA/WBC heavyweight champion Leon Spinks (24-17-3, 134 KOs) has reportedly been hospitalized in Las Vegas, Nevada following surgery to correct an abdominal problem. This was the second operation for the 61-year-old Spinks on the problem.

    According to AP, Spinks’ wife feels optimistic that he’ll be able to get through this, but he still has a ways to go.

    Spinks captured a gold medal in the 1976 in the light heavyweight division. He turned pro in 1977, and defeated WBA/WBC heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali in beating him by a 15 round split decision in February 1978. In their rematch in September of 1978, Spinks was beaten by a 15 round unanimous decision.

    The show opens with a video package hyping Bound for Glory as an event, and especially the fact that it’s happening in Japan. We get a look at some of the main feuds heading into tonight, including Storm and Sanada vs. The Great Muta and Taijiri.

    The arena is shown, and it looks pretty darn small, as Mike Tenay welcomes us to the show, and throws it to JB in the ring. JB welcomes us to the most famous arena in all of Japan, Korakuen Hall, and Bound for Glory. JB introduces the first match as Wrestle-1 vs. TNA action.

    Manik is the first man to make his way out to the ring to a smattering of cheers from the crowd.

    Minoru Tanaka is out next and he gets a nice pop from the fans in attendance.

    JB does formal ring introductions for both men, which wouldn’t be noteworthy if it weren’t the first match on the card.

    Singles Match
    Manik vs. Minoru Tanaka

    The bell rings and Tanaka and Manik begin circling each other and looking out toward the crowd. We get a lock up and a bit of chain wrestling, trading holds until Manik slides into an arm lock. Tanaka fights out of it and hits a beautiful dropkick that sends Manik to the mat.

    Tanaka hits a spinning back kick. Manik ties himself up in the ropes and baits Tanaka into jumping to the outside. Manik misses a dive over the top ropes, but he slides under the ring before Tanaka can dive to the outside. Manik slides out of the other side of the ring and hits a neckbreaker on a confused Tanaka. Manik mounts Tanaka and hits him with a series of rights before bringing him to his feet and into the corner. Manik hits a couple of rights before connecting with a snap mare and kick to the back for two.

    Manik locks in a modified rear chin lock, trapping Tanaka’s arm for a bit before simply just tearing at his face. Manik stomps on Tanaka’s face, then picks him up to his feet suplexing him right to his back. Manik hits a belly to back suplex that’s good for another two count.

    Manik avoids a middle rope dropkick from Tanaka and hits a low dropkick to Tanaka’s face. Manik hits a kick to the gut and avoids another dropkick from Tanaka, but the third time’s the charm as Tanaka connects with a dropkick. Tanaka takes Manik into the corner, and is whipped across the ring. He hits a missile dropkick from the second rope for a two count on Manik.

    Tanaka suplexes Manik, then drops a nasty knee across his forehead for two. Tanaka picks Manik up to his feet and kicks at his leg, but falls victim to a dropkick from Manik that sends him to the apron. Manik goes to dive through the ropes, only to run into a kick from Tanaka. Tanaka hits a moonsault from the middle turnbuckle out to the floor, wiping out Manik.

    Tanaka brings things back into the ring, hitting Manik with a dorearm and chop. Manik leaps to the apron and springboards into a dropkick. Manik shoulders Tanaka and drops him down into a sloppy kick to the side of the head for two. Manik slams Tanaka to the mat, then heads up to the top rope, going for a frog splash, and connecting with Tanaka’s knees. Tanaka rolls him up for two. Tanaka sends Manik into the corner, then seats him on the top rope. Tanaka stands on the top rope and hits a giant suplex/hip toss hybrid, getting another two count on Manik.

    Tanaka waits for Manik to stand and kicks him. Manik rolls Tanaka up for two. Manik and Tanaka jockey for position before Manik drops Tanaka on his head with a suplex for two. Manik brings Tanaka up to his feet and hits a double underhook into knees to the chest on Tanaka, getting yet another two count.

    Manik hits Tanaka with repeated forearms and blocks a kick, but runs right into another kick to the side of the head from Tanaka. Tanaka locks in the arm bar, and Manik is forced to tap out.

    Winner: Minoru Tanaka
