Raw Results – 11/25/19
Commentary Team: Vic Joseph & Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler
The show opens with a dejected Seth Rollins making his entrance to “CM Punk!” chants.
He apologizes and takes a shot at Punk, saying he tried to get him here and it’s not his fault he’d rather work his office job. The ring is surrounded by the Raw roster and Seth says this is about them. Last night, NXT mopped the floor with Raw, and he hates that because he’s been a fan of Raw his entire life, from “Stone Cold” Steve Austin to Shawn Michaels and the Rock and to see what it’s become breaks his heart.
The show is better than that, and the truth is everybody sucked last night. They need to take their Raw flag and plant it in the ground and make this place great again. He believes in Raw and he got everybody together here to speak on it now if they so choose. He calls Randy Orton out for comment and calls him the weak link, and Orton walks out. Rollins says that’s fine, he’ll step up and be leader.
Charlotte Flair is up next and he calls her out, saying she wasn’t even the last one standing for Raw and questions her right to call herself a Flair, which leads to her walking out as well. He berates the Authors of Pain and they leave, and then he calls Rey Mysterio out as the biggest letdown of them all, saying he couldn’t beat Brock even with no DQs and “his stupid kid”
Rey walks out and this leads the rest of the roster to leave with him as Seth says he’s just saying what everybody thinks. He turns around and sees Kevin Owens still there, on the apron. Owens gets in the ring and Rollins starts talking about how he just wants the show to be better and he loves this place and it’s not about him. He calls Kev a lazy piece of crap who wants his spot, but he’ll never be Seth Rollins.
Rollins begs off but KO’s had enough… STUNNER!
Seth Rollins is angrily taking his blazer off when an interview rolls up.
He talks about how he’s just trying to do the right thing and Kevin Owens wants to stun him? He wants a match against Owens tonight!

The OC attack Carrillo from behind before he can make it in the ring, he takes out Anderson, but Gallows Chokeslams him on the apron, Magic Killer on the steps
Ricochet comes out to check on Carrillo
AJ gets on the mic and asks if he’s okay. He says it doesn’t sound good for Humberto and that’s unfortunate. Speaking of unfortunate, he thought Ricochet was a superhero but he didn’t make it out in time to save his little buddy. Ricochet gets on the mic and asks if this is really what’s become of Styles before saying that, to him, that’s not what a champion is made of, and he’s gonna fix that problem because he wants the title match!
AJ says no, saying he signed for a title match against Humberto and only against Humberto, and he just got helped to the back, so no match will be happening.
Enter Randy Orton.
He says that Humberto might not be able to compete, but he can, and besides, he figures the people of Chicago would love nothing more than to see him RKO AJ’s ass right through the canvas. Randy asks for a title shot, and AJ deflects his shot just as quickly.
Enter Drew McIntyre.
He says he’s got a solution, and he knows a guy AJ’s never faced, that’s never had a singles title opportunity, he’s tall dark and handsome and has a sexy accent, and just last night he beat a monster among men and pinned the NXT UK Champion WALTER. Chicago doesn’t deserve this match, but why not Styles vs. McIntyre, title on the line? AJ says after stealing the show last night he’s a little sore–
Enter Rey Mysterio.
He talks about how he fought Brock Lesnar last night and you don’t hear him complaining but here’s Styles making excuses to avoid defending the title, so why not him? AJ calls them all entitled and spoiled and out of principle alone, he declines. Ricochet says he knows he’s the new guy and he smells a challenge so he has an idea– four-way #1 contender’s match!
Styles says that may be the dumbest thing he’s heard Ricochet say, but Big Hoot thinks it’s kinda compelling, and Machine Gun says it’s Monday Night Raw, hot crowd in Chicago, he thinks it’s pretty cool. Styles relents and agrees to it!

Kevin Owens is interviewed and simply takes the mic to cut a promo.
He tells Seth Rollins to listen carefully and recounts his promo before saying the big difference between them is that he’s known who he is from the moment he first laced up his wrestling boots 20 years ago and he’s never tried to be something that he’s not, because he knows who he is and he’s fine with that. But Seth has done everything he can to be what he thinks the company needs him to be but all he’s done is turn himself into an insufferable prick!
That first Stunner earlier was nothing, and there’s another one coming his way that’s gonna turn Monday Night Rollins into the Kevin Owens Show
