WWE RAW Results (11/21) Albany, NY – We are live from the MVP Arena in Albany, New York, as Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring to start tonight’s WWE RAW episode.
During his entrance, we see what happened on SmackDown, when Owens attacked The Bloodline and joined Team Brawling Brutes for War Games at Survivor Series.
Kevin says on Friday night on Smackdown, he joined the War Games match as the fifth man against the Bloodline. I did it for one specific reason. I am not talking about Sami Zayn. Even with everything we have been through, I consider Sami to be a brother. The person I am coming for is Roman Reigns. It’s been two long years since you and I faced each other in this ring. I am going to remind you who the hell I am. I am Kevin Owens. I am the guy who took you to the limit, not once or twice, but three times. If it wasn’t for your Bloodline, I would have ended your historic title reign before it got started. I am coming to take out your entire Bloodline so there is no one who can keep me from taking the title from you and kicking your ass.
Now, I got to go to Smackdown because I was extended an invitation by some guys. How rude would I be not to return the favot. He says he did not come alone tonight.
Sheamus, Butch, and Ridge Holland come out. Drew McIntyre also joins them.
Sheamus says there is a fire cooking in the stove because Saturday will be one of the painstaking, career altering matches in the history of the WWE. Saturday, it’s WAR GAMES. Last Friday, I told Sami Zayn that he would crap his pants when he found out the fifth member of the team. That man is the Prize Fighter, KO.
Drew says the Bloodline has been holding the titles hostage and using the numbers game. That ends on Saturday. You are looking at five lads who want to rip it all apart. Two rings, one cage, and no rules. Are you ready for a war?
The Judgment Day make their way to the stage.
Rhea tells Drew to shut up. The only thing people are going to talk about after Survivor Series is how many people I destroy in the women’s War Games Match. You are a bit lost. This is Raw, the show that The Judgment Day runs. Priest says you show respect to The Judgment Day. Dominik says that you better go back to Smackdown and you can tell my deadbeat dad, Rey Mysterio, I said hi. Finn tells AJ that he is coming to collect on Saturday. He says he hopes the Bloodline smashes you at Survivor Series. Next time you show your ugly mugs on Raw, The Judgment Day won’t be so nice.
Sheamus asks Finn how is he doing. Their homes might be ten miles apart in Ireland, but it might as well be a million miles apart. I don’t respect you. You are the Plastic Paddy I have come to despise.
Finn tells Sheamus even salt looks like sugar and I am a salty bastard. Sheamus says he has been wanting to get Finn one on one, so why don’t we do The Judgment Day versus the Brawling Brutes right here and right now. Finn says they are speaking their language. Priest says they accept.
All six men brawl in the ring and then The Judgment Day is sent to the floor as we go to commercial.
