Raw kicked off Monday with the heist of the century, as Chris Jericho stormed to the ring and demanded the return of his precious “List of Jericho,” which had been pickpocketed by an unknown Superstar. Jericho refused to compete until the List was returned, and even Kevin Owens and Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon couldn’t bring Jericho down to earth when they attempted to calm the six-time World Champion in advance of his and Owens' Triple Threat main event against Seth Rollins.
Speaking of Rollins, he quickly revealed himself to be the culprit, and he used his ill-gotten glimpse into Jericho’s mind to devastating effect, revealing that both Stephanie and Owens’ names were on the List in an attempt to sow discord among Jeri-KO before the Triple Threat. Rollins then revealed his alterations to the list, consisting mainly of the various body parts he was planning to rip from Kevin Owens inside Hell in a Cell this Sunday. And then, as a kicker, he told Jericho that if he wanted the List back so bad, he’d have to come and get … it.
Hell in a Cell may boast the rare distinction of a Triple Main Event, but only one of those marquee matches — Sasha Banks and Charlotte Flair for the Raw Women’s Title — has the smell of history about it. As the first women to ever battle inside the Cell, pressure is on the two Horsewomen to deliver. Raw General Manager Mick Foley took his opportunity to warn the two Superstars about the dangers that await them inside Hell in a Cell — dangers they might not fully appreciate just yet.
If Sasha was relaxed in the face of history, however, give credit to Charlotte, who was raring to go from the second Sasha walked in the ring. Charlotte demanded Foley give her the contract at the top of her lungs and vowed to beat respect into the “second-rate talent” holding her title. Sasha was calm, cool and collected in her response, and even though Foley all but begged the women not to sign away years of their life unless they were truly ready to lose them, sign they did. Next stop: Hell in a Cell.
So Goldberg, as we learned last week, is down for a fight if it’s a fight Brock Lesnar wants. The only thing left for the WWE Universe to wonder is what The Beast Incarnate thought about being “last” on the former World Heavyweight Champion’s hit list. The answer? Well, he and Paul Heyman are none too thrilled that the WWE Universe has thrown its support behind Goldberg as his collision course with The Conqueror begins. Though Heyman tried to sway the crowd in Lesnar’s favor, the WWE Universe didn’t quite seem to be entirely on the side of The Beast Incarnate. Hmmm...
