411’s WWE RAW Report 4.17.17
After last week’s explicit display of bad assery, I have no choice but to dedicate this week’s RAW Report to Braun Strowman! Lady and Gentlemen, welcome to 411’s WWE BRAAAAWWWWNNNN REPORT!!!
Braun starts the show, and he’s proud to say that last week, he broke Roman Reigns in half. He’s proud to say he left in an ambulance, has a seperated shoulder and cracked ribs, and he will NOT be here tonight.
Kurt Angle is seemingly bothered by these statements, because he heads out and doesn’t seem too happy. He wants to know what point Braun is trying to prove. He flipped over a freakin ambulance with Roman Reigns inside.
Braun says there is more to come.
Angle says that’s exactly what Roman said, but despite his injuries, he’s giving Roman a match with Braun at Payback. Braun says it will be Roman Reigns’ funeral.
Braun wants something tonight. Angle says tonight, Braun should be suspended. Angle gives him the night off. Braun tells Angle that Foley tried to play these games, and you saw where that went. Braun wants more competition tonight, or else.
Angle asks or else what?
Braun drops the mic and heads out of the ring.

Joe on the mic after the match. He wants to know if Seth remembers what it sounded like when Joe arrived here, because he remembers it very well. It was the sound of Seth’s ligaments and joints popping as he collpased to the ground – the sound of his screams of agony and pain and pleads for mercy. That was just business. Seth was nothing more than a designated target by his benefactor. Joe cares about his clientele, so for what Seth did to Triple H and his wife, it will not be Payback, it will be Personal.
Seth is the first this year to drop the classy line, “Payback is a bitch.”
Backstage, Gallows and Anderson are walking…

In the ring, Gallows and Anderson MAKE A FREAKIN UNITED AIRLINES JOKE! I JUST DID THAT!!!
Anyway, Anderson and Gallows want Angle to round up some “Nerds” in the back so that they can beat dem asses.

The Miz and Maryse are—
Sorry for that Braunteruption.
The Miz and Maryse are here to welcome us to MizTV. Miz says that last week, they shocked the world when they moved to RAW. Little did they know that when the luxury yacht that is Miz and Maryse left the dock of Smackdown, they had a stowaway.
Said stowaway is not far from them, apparently, as he heads out immediately. Dean hops around the ring a bit, swinging the title. He thanks Miz for having him, says he’s a big fan, and has been looking forward to this all week.
Miz says Dean spoiled his whole introduction and even spoiled last week. Dean asks for a truce, saying they’re both from Ohio, so let’s have a little fun.
Dean spells out OHIO with the crowd, then tells Maryse she wouldn’t know anything about that since she is Canadian.
Miz wonders if Dean thinks this is a joke, and Dean says Miz’s outfit is a joke. Miz says he dresses, walks, talks, and acts like this because he respects what a WWE Superstar is. He looks the part, acts the part, talks the part, because he IS the part. But Dean? Dean doesn’t care. Everything Dean is is a disgrace to what a WWE Superstar should be. Everything Miz has done is to make WWE talent look like superstars, but Dean makes them look like just “Wrasslers.” What irritates him the most is that The Universe loves Dean. yeah, they love Dean. That’s why he is given opportunity after opportunity. Who was the first pick at the draft? Dean Ambrose. Summerslam? Who is champ? Dean Ambrose! What did Dean do with all of this? Wasted it. 6 months later, where was Dean at Wrestlemania….The Freakin PRESHOW! If Miz was Dean, he’d be embarrassed. YOu know why Dean never breaks the glass ceiling? It’s because Dean is lazy and complacent.
Dean says it doesn’t matter what he’s wearing, it’s about what’s in his heart. There are a lot of guys who care about image, care about what people say and tweet – about branding. Dean doesn’t even know what that word means. he is not a brand, he is DEAN AMBROSE. He doesn’t care about movies, talk shows, endorsement deals – he’d do this in front of 20 or 20,000. He loves it. He loves black guys…sorry, eyes. He loves bleeding. There is no one that does it like he does, and that’s why he has the IC Title. Miz oughta know, Miz is the guy he beat for it.
Maryse steps in between Miz and Dean and calls Dean a Street Rat. She says walking around with a title doesn’t make him a champion. She calls him a boy, and says the man makes the title, not the other way around.
Miz starts with a promo while Dean empties his pockets. He removes his jacket while Miz rattles on abut his work. Dean folds his jacket up. Miz says the title is exactly what Dean is – a joke. Dean tosses his jacket to Maryse, then shoots for the legs of The Miz!!! He beats down on The Miz until Maryse…..THROWS A MICROPHONE AT HIS BACK!!! hahahaha. Dean turns towards Maryse, and Miz tries for the Skull Crushing Finale. Dean nearly turns it into a Dirty Deeds, but Miz escapes and heads up the ramp with Maryse.
Backstage, Braun is dragging one of the Cruiserweights! It’s Lince or is it Kalisto?! Oh, It’s Kalisto. hahahahahaha. This is great! He lifts up Kalisto and drops him in a nearby trash bin. Welcome to RAW.
Outta nowhere, The Big Show trucks Braun into a rolldown door! He yells, with spit spewing into his beard, for Braun to pick on someone his own size.
Before the following match with Gallagher and Perkins, Neville comes out. Aries is next to come out and says he is inviting himself, making a special appearance for the following matchup. He grabs a chair and sits next to Neville. Aries pulls a banana out of his jacket pocket.

He locks the arm with the lef and twists his mustache. Jack then pulls back on the arm and forces it down into a pin for 1….NO! TJ hits the ropes, dives under a leap frog, Jack locks the legs, and Gallagher hits a head scissors. JACK DABS!!!!! hahahaha. TJ grabs the umbrella then tosses it over the ropes to the outside. TJ sends him in the corner, Jack with a headstand. Kick to TJ. Backhand, another. TJ hits the ropes and holds onto them.
