Keep Refreshing For The Latest WWE Raw Results

Hello Quarintinos! It’s another Monday, and Vanessa and I have not yet killed each other. I can only hope the same for you.

RAW starts with the loud roar of the crowd.

Haha. Just kidding. It starts with MVP talking bout MitB, and wants to pick the brains of those that will be in the match. His first guest, Rey Mysterio.

MVP forgoes the tour for Rey and introduces Aleister Black.

MVP then announces his pick for MitB, Apollo Crews.

MVP asks Rey what it means to be Mr. MitB, but MVP answers for him, saying that it will cement his legacy and add to his already storied career. MVP then answers for Black, saying it will catapult him. As for Crews, as much as it pains MVP to admit it, Crews beat him, and has a chance to become Mr. MitB. What does this mean to him, and does he have what it takes?

Apollo says that this is an opportune—-

They are interrupted by Zelina Vega and her crew. Zelina says no one wants to hear what Apollo Crews has to say, but what they can’t stop talking about is Zelina’s boyz. These three men are the future. At one point or another, the three in the ring were deemed the future, but none of them measure up, and the future that them three represent is a bleek one. One where that MitB contract resides somewhere other than RAW.

Zelina calls her boys to trash the red velvet of MVP and ushers them into the ring. She tells the three that it doesn’t have to be this way. They should do what’s right, show the Universe that they are willing to do what’s best for RAW, and allow her three to take their places.

MVP says this sou—

Rey wants to speak. They’re coming out expecting for them to just hand over their spots? Wow. You’re crazy, but in Spanish. Rey also feels like they came out to pick a fight with them.

Fisticuffs fly! The faces take care of the heels and stand tall (well, except for Rey) in the middle of the ring.

MVP is on the tron. He says he has a great eye for talent, and says who better to bring back Thorne and the other guy from last week. MVP says last week was a fluek, and a rematch could be box office gold. So….I guess that’ll go down.

Backstage, Apollo is on crutches. Charley asks him a question, and he starts crying.


Jerry Lawler is here to talk about Money in the Bank, saying they could fight in the gym, the elevator, and maybe even Mr. McMahon’s office, but eventually they’ll make their way to the roof to compete for the briefcase.

Seth comes out first

Then Drew, and he tells King he should leave the ring, because he knows how these things go.

Drew offers Seth a seat, then signs the document, and turns the page for Seth to sign.

Seth, with his one gloved hand, looks at the contract, and considers the act of signing. He grabs a mic.

He wonders if Drew thinks Seth wants this. He doesn’t want this; he has to drink this. He dropped Drew two weeks ago to get them to this point, but he doesn’t WANT to do this. Drew will be a great champ some day. He’s a warrior and an honorable man, but not a leader. Seth is a leader. He has led, and people have followed. Now, more than ever, the WWE University needs someone to turn to, a leader. He can be the light in this darkness. Seth doesn’t want to be the one crushing Drew’s dream, but that’s the sacrifice he’s willing to make. In time this will all make sense to Drew, and when it comes, Drew can find Seth, and he will not turn him away. He will lead Drew, too.

Drew says thank you. It was a really passionate speech – really enlightening. Things are clear to Drew now. He’s sure they’re clear to all of us, too. It’s clear that Seth is completely full of shit.


Drew wonders where his followers are. It’s not Seth’s fault. It’s never Seth’s fault, right? Drew doesn’t know what’s going on in that warped brain of Seth, but he will not let Seth win the championship under any circumstances. He’ll give Seth some advice: Shut your mouth – stop talking .Forever. No one wants to hear Seth Rollins talk, be it now or online. Seth has a unique talent of somehow getting his foot stuck in his mouth while at the same time getting his head stuck up his ass. Two: Finish the job. Go for the throat. He didn’t two weeks ago, but he better do so at Money in the Bank, because he’ll sure as hell go for his.

Seth says at MitB, the big picture will become very clear, and Drew will be better off for it.

Seth signs.

Seth tells Drew “Have Faith In…”

Drew slams his head into the table, then tosses it out of the ring, and moves the chair. Glasgow Kiss to Seth. Drew removes his too tight shirt and gets ready for the Claymore. BUT MURPHY IS HERE!!! Murphy stomps Drew in the corner. He looks towards Seth and helps him up. Seth rips himself away from Murphy. Seth hugs Murphy. CLAYMORE FROM DREW TO MURPHY!!!!
