HIAC Winner Cody Rhodes Speaks on Raw

Cody was not dressed to fight, but to talk. The crowd showered him in “Cody!” chants. Cody did the famous. “Welcome, to Monday Night Raw”. The WWE Universe followed up with “Thank you, Cody”. He said it is a privilege to do what he does, and he does not need the thanks. He is also officially done with Seth Rollins after fighting him in 3 matches and winning them all. Not only that, but he then spoke about Money in the Bank and wanting to win the briefcase. He may not be able to compete however due to his injury and the event is in 4 weeks.

Rollins’s music hit, and he came to the ring. Surprisingly, he gave Cody his respect. He then showed his respect by shaking hands with Cody. Rollins left the ring and Cody walked up the ramp to his music.

Out of nowhere, Rollins attacked Cody with a sledgehammer. He was attacking Cody’s injured right side. This may not be the end of their story.

Becky Lynch Vs Dana Brooke

Becky lost yesterday at HIAC when Bianca Belair defeated her and Asuka to retain her Raw Women’s Championship. While fighting, Akira Tozawa was running around the ring with his 24/7 championship. Tamina and others were chasing him, and he ran into the ring. Dana was able to roll him up and win the title.

Becky was upset about that and challenged Dana for the title. That was made official. Becky tossed Dana with a becksploder and Asuka arrived. Dana rolled up Becky off the distraction, but Becky kicked out. Dana was able to pin Becky again and Asuka held Becky’s foot down, so she could not kick out.

The Miz came out with his wife Maryse to host Miz TV. This is a premiere for the MIZ & MRS airing season 3, episode 1 after Raw. They are celebrating the occasion and then Riddle interrupted.

The Miz told him to get lost. Riddle called out Roman Reigns and his title. Then they started talking about The Miz’s balls…Maryse then told Riddle to fight her husband.

Tried to flatten the Miz with an RKO, but the Miz ran out the ring. Riddle then ripped the Miz’s pants off. The referee was distracted and the Miz tried to hit him with Maryse’s purse, but Riddle had an RKO out of nowhere in mind instead to win.

Dawkins started against Jimmy but went after Jey on the apron. Dawkins was isolating Jimmy and tagged in Montez. Montez dropped Jey with a dropkick. The Street Profits have been in control. After a commercial break, Jimmy was in control over Dawkins. Jimmy was all over him, and Jimmy on the apron even gave him a big punch to the face. Dawkins coming alive was able to fight off the Usos for a little while. Unfortunately for him, the Usos are a great team. Montez through the ropes took out Jey, then Jimmy through the ropes took out Montez, and Dawkins took out both Usos. Montez then went to the top rope and crushed Jey with a huge splash. So high he almost touched the hanging MITB briefcases. The match then ended when The Usos got counted out and Montez got back in the ring at a count of 9.
