411’s WWE RAW Report 2.4.19

February 4, 2019 | Posted by Tony Acero
Kurt Angle Braun Strowman Raw 2-4-19

EVERYBODY!!! IT’S TIME FOR…MONDAY NIGHT….RAW!!! Last week, we had some problems over at 411, and this week, I am streaming RAW from a channel in the UK that reminds me eerily of the company that created Terminator.

Raw is live in Portland, Oregon tonight with your usual announce team of Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Renee Young.

Stephanie McMahon is in the ring and gets interrupted by Becky Lynch, who makes her way out to the ring. We look back at last week’s segment from Raw, where Becky Lynch said she was choosing Ronda Rousey to be her opponent at WrestleMania 35. Stephanie says that she’s never seen anyone go toe-to-toe with Ronda and smile, to which Becky says why wouldn’t she be smiling when she won the Royal Rumble and is headed to Wrestlemania, where she will slap Rousey’s head off.

Stephanie replies that no one wants to see Becky do that to Ronda more than her, but notices that Lynch isn’t walking too quickly and asks how she’s doing. We get a look at the end of the Royal Rumble match where Becky was hurt, and Stephanie says that Becky’s all heart but has yet to seek medical attention. Lynch says she doesn’t want to deal with doctors, and Stephanie reminds her of the situation when Nia Jax broke her nose. She says she can’t let Becky compete if she isn’t medically cleared.

Becky sees what’s happening here, and she’s not moving for anyone. She’s struggled to get this point, and Stephanie doesn’t know anything about struggling as she’s never had to struggle for anything in her life. She’s just another daddy’s girl who never had to fight, trying to stop Becky from fighting for everything. Becky says she has fought every step of the way to get her WrestleMania match and no doctor is going to take it from her.

Stephanie says that Becky earned the match, but is a liability if she isn’t cleared. She says Becky can be cleared as long as her knee isn’t worse than it seems. She promises it isn’t a plot, but is concern for Becky’s health. She threatens to suspend Lynch until she sees a doctor. Lynch says she won’t do it, and Stephanie says she doesn’t want to, but has to suspend Becky until she does see a doctor.

Lynch punches Stephanie and tries for a Dis-arm-her. Officials and referees come down to the ring and Lynch is eventually pulled away from Stephanie. She has trouble standing, and slowly walks up the ramp.

Hey guys, Tony here. Due to my being the only responsible adult in my circle of friends, I had to call AAA for a tow, causing me to miss Ronda take on Liv Morgan, then Sarah Logan. Im sure you saw it. If you didn’t, you know what happened. Now then…let’s get back to business.

Backstage, Charley wants to talk to Sasha and Bayley about their recent failures. Sasha is about to pop off, but Bayley is cooler and brings up the tag team titles. Sasha says it’ll be an honor to win the titles, and come Elimination Chamber, they will make history yet again.

In come Nikki and Alicia to tell Sasha and Bayley they won’t make it to Elimination Chamber. Nikki says no one wanted to play with her except The Fox. Chaos isn’t judgmental. It’s fair. Alicia says not to cross the fox. Nikki giggles. Alicia still annoys me.

Match 3: Lucha House Party vs The Revival vs The B Team vs Heavy Machinery

Axel and Metalik to start. Rollup and Metalik gets a 1. Axel with some rights. He starts a chant for his team. Whip to Metalik, who springboards, flips, lands on his feet, kicks Axel in the gut, spins on the ropes and dropkicks Axel down. Lince got the tag, and they doule team Axel into the corner, where Wilder tags himself in. Rollup for 1..2..NO!! Arm drag from Lince. Big boy from Heavy Machinery gets in just as Wilder ets in.

In the ring, we get a Bushwackers memorial, then they grab Dawson and toss him over the top rope to the outside.

Back from the break, and Dawson has a cover onto Metalik. He gets a 2. Tag to Dash, who comes in to kick around the MExican.

Backstage, Hawkins is watching the match. In comes Ryder who says they will be out there next time. Hawkins says he is toxic, and although he loves this reunion, Hawkins is bringing this down. Ryder says they lost just one match. Hawkins says he lost over 250. Ryder says last week on Raw, the graphic with their name, they spelled his name wrong. They put ZACH. They can’t even spell his name right. He’s been here for 13 years. The point is that he’s a loser just like Hawkins, but you can’t bring him down – he can’t get any lower. They’re losers, but not for long. They got signed together. Youngest champions of all time. He promises that they’ll lose the losign streak…together .Hawkins says maybe then they’ll start spelling his name right.

Backstage, Angle is walking. Mickie James comes up to give him a hug. Apollo with a handshake.

After a commercial break, Angle comes out to the chorus of YOU SUCK as Corey laments over the possibility of it being the last time he hears that chant.

Angle brings up the Three Is. He says it worked through the good and the bad. He accomplished so much, everytihng he wanted to. From the European Title all the way to the Hall of Fame. He tore the house down with Shawn Michaels at Mania. He soiled this ring with milk. As GM, he allowed eeryone to settle things in the ring. He finally got to meet the son he never knew he had, and always had us to remind him of how much he really sucked. Lately, he’s been suffering from three D.s Doubt, Depression, Dysentery. He brings up McIntyre and Corbin. He wanted to prove that he still had it – the Dysentery. He has beat them all. He even won a gold medal with a broken freakin neck, but there’s one opponent that he knows he can’t defeat – Father Time. OOOOOOOOO he’s callin out The Undertaker!!!

Angle is cut off by Corbin. Corbin comes out and tells Angle he’s doing the same speech he did two years ago. Corbin says that Angle was supposed to make matches while GM not be in them. He says Angle wanted to prove to all of us that he had what it takes to be a superstar. Angle is nothing more than a shadow of a man. Angle tells Corbin to come in the ring so he can break his ankle in two. Angle removes his jacket, he’s ready to go.

The music of Drew McIntyre hits, and out comes the Scotty with a body. Drew says one minute, Angle is accepting his fate and the next he is challenging the man that took his job and beat him last week. People used to see a warrior in Angle, but in their match he saw fear. Fear before he tapped him out to his own Ankle lock. He was humiliated. He thought he’d never see Angle again, but he has no quit in his body. He says they are going to put Angle down for good.
Angle stands his ground in the ring. Drew and Corbin hop up on the apron. Braun’s music hits, and here comes the Tinder Monster!!! He sends Drew into the post. In the ring, Angle sends Corbin right back out. Braun heads oer to Corbin, grabs the timekeepers chair, and tosses it at Corbin. Braun chases him in the ring and Corbin slides out and meets with Drew, then hightails it into the audience, which is something Drew should never do. Bad move, ya idiots.

The beautiful Sasha’s music hits, and out comes Bayley, but Alicia and Nikki come out to attack!!! Nikki drags Sasha from the back out to the stage. They pull Bayley’s jacket off and Nikki holds her by her ponytail. They send Bayley into the screen on the stage then go to stomp Sasha out a bit. Alicia pulls Sasha away but a ref holds her back. Nikki screams. Alicia kicks bayley in the head. She then walks down the ramp as Cole wonders if the match is going to happen or not.

Match 4: Sasha Banks and Bayley vs Nikki Cross and Alicia Fox

The match is still going down. Bayley in the ring with Alicia. Sasha cannot wrestle, as she is barely standing on the apron Bayley sends Alicia into the corner. She flies off with a clothesline and a cover for 1..2.NO!!! Bayley with a side suplex to Alicia then covers again for 1..2..NO!!! Nikki stops the pin so Bayley suplexes her as well. She sends Alicia to the apron and hits a neckbreaker. Nikki and Alicia on the outside hug a little. Bayley grabs her and sends her int othe ring then hits a hard right to Nikki. She rolls back into the ring. Alicia with a scissors kick. Cravat from Alicia Fox. Sasha is finally standing. Tag to Nikki and they double team Bayley in the corner, hanging her up. Nikki stomps her a bit. Tag to Alicia. Alicia with an axe handle that doesn’t even touch bayley. Stomp from Alicia. Tag to Nikki who locks in her own submission. Bayley elbows out. Kick in the corner from Nikki. Tag to Alicia. She hangs Bayley up in the tree of woe for a second time. Tag to Nikki who comes in to stomp her out. Bayley pulls herself up and hits a right to Alicia. She falls off the corner. Nikki shoves her into the adjacent corner and hits a shoulder. Splash in the conrer. Bulldog out of the corner. Cover for 1..2..NO!!! She rolls Bayley to the outside. Nikki gets on the apron. Crossbody to Bayley off the apron!!! She waits for Bayley to stand. She runs. But Sasha is there to pull Bayley out of the way, and Nikki hits the ringpost on the outside!!! In the ring, Bayley tries to tag Sasha. Alicia is in, though. She grabs Bayley by the arm, yells “I Don’t Think So,”

So Bayley turns and rolls alicia up! Pin for 1..2….3!!

Backstage, we question Apollo for not coming out to help him even though he said he had his back. Liar. Apollo says angle is allowed to have a couple of bad matches. He also thinks that Angle has a chan—

He’s cut off by Drake Maverick and half of AOP. Apollo wants to know how they get Drake to talk like that. Pulling a string or putting a hand up his a—Oh boy. Razar gers all lip-shakin mad and they walk away.

Road Dogg’s music hits and he comes out looking like the uncle that still lives at mom’s house with a Portland Oregon jersey on. He does his schtick to fulfill the creepy uncle look and introduces himself sans Bad Ass Billy Gunn. He says his belly is a little bigger, his goatee is grey, but tonight ain’t bout him. He introduces Jarrett. They sing their song cuz we didn’t get enough last week. It’s better than Maroon 5.

Elias finally comes out and says that the song hasn’t aged well, just like Road Dog nd Jeff. He wonders if Jeff even plays guitar, and what is Road Dogg even doing out here? He should be on Smackdown taking their ratings. He will not be doing a song in Portland. Jarrett wants to wait just a minute. In the immortal words of one of his greatest rivalries, Ey Chico…don’t sing it, just bring it. Road Dogg instigates.

Jarrett leaves the ring and hits a right on Elias. Another right. Elias rolls into the ring. Jarrett follow. Ref holds hmi back and the match starts.

Backstage, Natalya is getting her Sable on with a black turtleneck and plumped lips. Dana is behind her to apologize about losing the match last week. She realizes how important the tag team titles are to her. She’s sorry. Dana says she was just pumping herslef up last week. Natalya ignores her, doesn’t acknowledge her. I bet she’s one of those rich airpod owners. Dana yells that she is requesting am atch next week to prove that she belongs here. Natalya exposes her elitism and shows that she was, in fact, wearing Air Pods.

Backstage, Charley is with a taped up Finn. She thinks he is in a lot of pain. At what point does he stop putting his pride before his health. Finn says The Irish are stubborn when wounded. It’s a trend, it seems. His elbow hurts, his ribs hurt, people have told him to stay home. He took the best punishment they had to offer and he is still standing here. Someone like Lashley thinks they can push him around. He won’t be pushed around or held down or pushing forward. He will take the fight to Lashley just like he took it to Brock. He will also take the IC Title.

Lashley and Lio come out. Lio says Finn is out here looking like a mummy. He says this isn’t David vs Goliath, it’s Mouse vs Mack Truck. Let’s be real. Lashley can curl dumbells heavier than Finn. Finn has no chance. He shouldn’t even be talking about the title. Lashley brings up the title match last week, and how Finn couldn’t beat him. Newsflash, Lashley is better than Brock. He can beat him in a wrestling match, in the ring, in an Octagon, in his sleep. Finn doesn’t deserve to be in a ring to him. Yes, he said that. In fact, Lashley should fight people his own size. He will not be facing Lashley. Tonight, he will face Lio.

Before the match can start, Lashley attacks! He sends Finn into the corner then drops Finn and stomps him.

Alexa Bliss is next!!! she welcomes one of the future superstars coming to WWE. Here comes EC3 with a bottle full of baby oil poured on his abs. Alexa is usin the “Lemme eat your ass” voice, and says he has a very large…bank account. Thus making him a hot commodity. Alexa wants to know whether he’ll be on RAW or Smackdown. Just as he is about to announce something, Nia Jax comes out along with Tamina. Nia will answer this one. No one cares. Nobody. Nia would apologize for interrupting but she isn’t sorry.

Oh, and they did that by beating Alexa. Alexa says Mickie lost the match. Nia says this is her moment. The entire Universe is talking and tweeting about her, wondering what she will do next. She may just fill in for Becky at Mania. Sounds good to her. Maybe she’—-

Dean Ambrose cuts her off and Alexa is pissed. Lol. Man, she’s hot. Know who else is hot?

Nia is mad that Ambrose “Interrupt her interrupt.” Ambrose says he is sorry to Alexa, he doesn’t want to be out here, but he has something to say to Nia. It’s obvious that she has a huge crush on Dean. He understands. She isn’t the first. He has raw sexual magnatism, it’s ok, he gets it. She has to stay away and don’t ever come near him again, please. As for Alexa, who is this? Alexa says EC3. He’s about to speak. Dean knocks the mic from his hand before he can. EC3 stands up. Dean says he’ll take over. He’s got some questions. He wonders what EC3 stands. Where is EC1 and 2? He doesn’t give him a chance to answer any of the questions. Dean says he looks like a Creed fan. Why does he hang round backstage instead of getting in the ring. EC3 is about to answer, but just hits Ambrose in the face. EC3 makes his way to the ring.
