WWE Monday Night RAW Results
November 16, 2015
Greenville, South Carolina
Report by: Mike Tedesco of Wrestleview.com

The entire WWE roster is out on the stage. Lilian Garcia calls for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Paris attacks over the past weekend.

The RAW video plays, and we’re brought into the arena. Michael Cole talks about Seth Rollins being sidelined by a terrible knee injury. They then talk about the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament. Tonight, we’ll see Kevin Owens face Neville, Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio vs. Kalisto, and Roman Reigns vs. Cesaro.

The sound of monks chanting is heard, and the arena lights turn to a hazy purple. Druids march out as the arena watches on in curiosity. The bell tolls, and Undertaker’s music begins to play. Undertaker and his brother Kane slowly step out to a big reaction from the crowd. They stand at the top of the ramp and look out into the crowd before slowly walking down the ramp. This week on the WWE Network will be Undertaker Week. Replays are shown of Undertaker and Kane attacking The Wyatt Family last week on RAW. This Sunday at WWE Survivor Series, The Brothers of Destruction will face two members of The Wyatt Family. A loud “Undertaker” chant breaks out in the arena. Undertaker says, “Standing before you is the true army of darkness. On the horizon, vengeance awaits The Wyatt Family. The Wyatt Family took our bodies and tried to claim our souls, but there is no one, no man living or dead, that contains the power of the dark side.”

Kane takes the microphone and says when you try to steal the flames of hell you will get burnt. At Survivor Series, they’ve reserved a special place for Bray Wyatt and his family in the deepest pits of hell. It’s a place where they will suffer in the fires of eternal damnation. Undertaker says Wyatt’s kind of evil is no match for theirs. Their evil has been time tested over and over again, so this is what’s going to happen. Undertaker tells Wyatt to choose whichever two members of his family he wants to sacrifice because the Brothers of Destruction have already decided their destiny. They will never rest in peace.

The Wyatt Family video flashes on the screen and the lights go out. Bray Wyatt comes out into the darkened arena with his family by his side. Wyatt sits in a rocking chair at the top of the ramp and blows out the lantern. The crowd loudly boos them. Wyatt says for twenty-five years, Undertaker has reigned over WWE. For twenty-five years, Undertaker has instilled fear in every creature on this earth. Wyatt thinks twenty-five years is long enough. It’s time for a new army of darkness to emerge. The Brothers of Destruction are no longer fate’s master. They no longer dictate when wolves howl or lightening strikes. Wyatt does that. Wyatt says he is the new face of fear. He is the master and decider. After Survivor Series, they will just be remembered as the brothers he destroyed. Wyatt says he is the one. Wyatt raises his arm, and thunderclaps are heard in the arena. As for the Creatures of the Night, they are his.

Wyatt’s video flashes, and the lights go out. When they come back on, Wyatt is laughing. The druids are wearing sheep masks. Wyatt growls, “Run.” The druids get in the ring, and Undertaker and Kane clean house on them. They then give stereo Chokeslams to the druids. Undertaker then invites The Wyatt Family to come in the ring. Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, and Braun Strowman make their way to the ring, but Wyatt stops them. Their destiny is on Sunday. Until then, Undertaker and Kane can follow the buzzards. The screen flashes black, and that’s the end of the segment.

WWE Divas Championship Contract Signing

Michael Cole is in the ring. There is a table with a contract on it. Cole introduces Paige to the ring first before having the WWE Divas Champion come out. Charlotte refuses to sit down, so Paige gets up. Cole says the WWE fans are trying to figure out what happened to their friendship. Paige says there are no friendships. When you’re a true champion, there’s no room for emotions or friendships. She wanted to teach that to Charlotte, and she’ll do it this Sunday when she takes back their championship. Charlotte asks how Paige got so bitter. She wanted to be like Paige. She was the naïve, sweet Carolina girl, and Paige was the British badass. They sat at home watching their parents on television night after night. They cared about the WWE almost as much as they cared about them. Charlotte starts crying as she mentions her late brother. Paige looks like she’s getting teary eyed too. Paige was there for her at that time. She’s here to fulfill his dream. They were a family.

Paige says it doesn’t matter what she said or thought about her. Paige has been using her since day one. Charlotte says she sucks at using people because she’s the Divas Champion and Paige isn’t. It’s not about the title – it’s about whose got your back at the end of the day. Paige asks where she learned that crap. Charlotte says PCB was going to change the Divas Division until she let her selfish ways get in the way. Paige says she deserves the championship more than Charlotte. Charlotte says Paige isn’t a champion. A champion is a role model, someone people aspire to be like. Charlotte says she won’t be champion forever, but when she loses the title, it won’t be this Sunday or to someone like Paige. Paige says Charlotte is so naïve it makes her sick. It’s embarrassing.

Cole reminds Charlotte to sign the contract. Paige says no one has Charlotte’s back, not even daddy. Paige calls out Ric Flair to come out and drop an elbow on his jacket. Paige calls him an old fart. Charlotte unconvincingly says she needs to shut her mouth or she won’t leave the building. Paige says her little brother didn’t have that much fight in him. That’s absolutely disgusting. Your classic trashy storyline for WWE – when you can’t get heat, call on the dead. They have a brawl that absolutely no one in the crowd cares about, and that’s all she wrote. This was put on last because people have all together stopped watching the third hour of RAW, so chances are not a lot of people saw this. Lucky them. Sorry, I usually stay neutral in the recap, but this was awful.
