Raw has been lackluster for months but that all challenged last night as it was a very compelling episode. As I always do I will provide a brief recap as well as the results.
Samoa Joe Debut
Seth Rollins was on a mission looking for Triple H last night and he got what he wished for. Later on, Triple H made his presence known and he took shots at Rollins on the mic. He stated that The Architect was a “failure” without his support. Rollins has got what he wanted because of Triple H has summoned the destroyer. Then Rollins came down to the ring but it was all set up. Finally, Samoa Joe, made a statement as he attacked Rollins from behind. Joe then proceeded to lock in Coquina Clutch and it was all over.
Issuing a challenge
Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar made a surprise appearance. Paul Heyman issued one more challenge this time at WrestleMania 33. It will be interesting to see if Goldberg accepts the challenge.
Jericho was bragging about being an iron man as he lasted sixty-one minutes in the Royal Rumble match. Jericho once again made history in the Royal Rumble match as he has now spent the longest time in the rumble match at four hours fifty-six minutes and twelve seconds. Even though Jericho was a sixty-one man he had no rest because he took on Sami Zayn in a non-title US Title match. This was a fantastic match between two workhorses as expected. Sami Zayn picked up a massive win over Jericho.
