Steve Austin Seth Rollins Braun Strowman Raw 9-9-19

It’s HOSS TIME! Laptop #1 took a shit, so I’m currently watching RAW on my phone until Laptop #1 fixes itself. The things I do for you guys, I swear…

RAW Starts off hot with the glass shattering!

Austin waxes poetic about his past where he gave McMahon the first Stunner he ever did. He also brings up Bret, then talks about 98 or so when SCSA went against The Undertaker at Summerslam and Taker knocked him out with his head on accident.

Eventually, we get to Austin announcing the two who are here to sign a contract. Braun is first.

Braun comes face to face with Austin and extends his hand out for a shake. Austin is hesitant as the crod chants his name. Austin doesn’t shake the hand, and instead announces Seth Rollins to come out.

Rollins comes out with his two red belts as Austin says we’ve got some business to take care of. He shakes the hands of both, then says he’s here to assure this thing get signed.

Seth does Seth things on the mic.He calls Braun a big goon and says that Austin might have it in for him. Seth brings up the Whats. He says usually he hates it, but since Austin is here, Seth’s down with it. Austin stops the crowd and brings up the contract. This is why he is here.

Seth says he will oblige, but he must say one thing – nobody is stabbing anyone in the back. Seth claims he is the best wrestler on the planet, and after Clash, he will still be the best.

The crowd disagrees.

Braun says a Rattlesnake is still a rattlesnake. Braun says he likes being tag champs, but he’s going to love being Universal Champion. So to quote one of the greatest of all times, “I’m bout to open a can of whoop ass,” and Seth is going to get these hands. Braun signs.

Seth is about to shake the hand of Braun, but out comes AJ and The OC.

AJ says the OC doesn’t want none. AJ mocks Austin a bit, then mocks the WHAT. AJ tells Austin to turn his eyes to AJ and says to sit this one out, or he might get hurt. The crowd whats him. AJ blames Austin. He tells everyone to shut up. He says it has nothing to do with Austin, but everything to do with Seth and Braun.

Austin tells AJ to put some bass in his voice. AJ tells Austin to shut up. AJ says The OC didn’t even get a rematch.

After some more shit talking, Austin calls out an attqck. Braun and Seth attack The Club, Braun exits the ring to truck down Gallows then attack Anderson from the back. Seth calls for a Stimpl, goes for one on AJ, but AJ sends Seth to the outside. Austin is still in the ring. Aj turns….Austin kicks! STUNNER to AJ! Crowd loves it!!! Austin does turns red talking shit to AJ as Cole claims Stone Cold is back. Idiot.

We come back from break, And AJ is still stirring in the ring, feeling the effects of the Stunner. Out comes Cedric for his upcoming match. AJ stands and the bell rings.
