Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw.
The new Universal Champion Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring.
We take a look at the Universal Championship match between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins.
Seth responds to the crowd by saying we deserved it. He says he has waited a long time to stand in this ring and hold this title above his head. All it took was climbing Mount Everest and beating the most dominant champion. Seth says he feels like he got run over by a Mack Truck and Brock is the human equivalent. He took German suplexes and F5s before being ragdolled around the ring, but he got back up. He took everything Brock had to dish out and he got back up. Seth says he might have taken some questionable tactics to gain an advantage, but he didn’t do anything to Brock that he wouldn’t have done to him.
Seth says he heard after the match that Paul and Brock were on a flight to Vegas for some meetings. Seth says as far as he is concerned, they can stay in Las Vegas because Brock is no longer the reigning undisputed Universal champion. Seth says he is. Seth says he is the reigning defending fighting undisputed Universal champion. Seth says he will be a champion everyone can be proud of.
The New Day interrupt and BIg E introduces the new WWE Champion, Kofi Kingston.
Kofi says he can see the look on Seth’s face and he looks confused.
Seth points out it is Monday, not Tuesday.
Kofi says your eyes do not deceive you because it is The New Day. This isn’t the Superstar Shake Up, that is happening next week. Big E says last night was cause for celebration and they could not wait until Smackdown. Xavier says Seth became Universal Champion when you beat the Beast Incarnate himself.
Seth says the people don’t like him and Woods asks if they don’t like BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKK Lesnar.
Big E says their friend Kofi did the impossible and he won his first championship match of his eleven year career to become your WWE Champion.
Seth is shocked that Big E is doing a split.
Kofi says after his match, he was in the locker room with his sons wawtching the main event, that was winner take all. That was a great idea for Becky Lynch, sooooooooooooooooooooo how about the new Universal Champion and the new WWE Champion have a winner take all match tonight. Kofi says it seems that the Shield are not a thing any more. No Shield and no New Day. Just the two of them one on one, title for title.
Seth and Kofi look at each other and Seth accepts the challenge.
