Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 6.23.15: #RAW Recap

By @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's time for this week's RAW recap. 

- RAW was live this week in Indianapolis, Indiana.

- Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman arrive to kick off the show. Heyman says Brock promised an apology in order to return from his suspension. Brock shakes hands with JBL, Booker T. and gives Michael Cole a noogie on his head. Heyman finishes by stating that Seth Rollins will be conquered by Brock Lesnar at WWE Battleground.

- Kane vs. Dean Ambrose: The match closes out with Ambrose countering the choke slam and goes for Dirty Deeds. Seth Rollins arrives at ringside and distracts Ambrose. Ambrose ducks another choke slam attempt by Kane and hits a suicide dive on Rollins. Ambrose goes to the top rope, but Rollins is back up and again distracts Ambrose. Kane grabs Ambrose and plants Ambrose with the choke slam to score the pin.

- Backstage, Seth Rollins talks up Kane and brags about what just happened. Rollins tries to re-friend Kane and earn his alliance but Kane walks away.

- Prime Time Players vs. The Ascension: The match closes out with Darren Young hitting clotheslines and gets a near fall bridge suplex on Viktor. Konnar tries to get involved, but gets tossed to the floor by Titus. Young hits an elbow and the Gut Check on Viktor to score the pin.

- Sheamus vs. Roman Reigns: The match closes out with Reigns fighting out of the Irish Cloverleaf and tossing Sheamus to the floor. Reigns clotheslines Sheamus over the announcers table, when Bray Wyatt appears on the titantron drinking tea and says "They're waiting". Reigns books backstage and finds a room full of candles with photos on the wall. The photos have the eyes and mouth cut out of them and we hear Bray talking as the segment ends.

- Backstage, Seth Rollins tries to reunite with Mercury and Noble, but both men ignore Rollins and walk off.

- Neville vs. Kofi Kingston (w/The New Day): The New Day try to attack Neville on the floor, but the Prime Time Players come out to make the save. The referee tosses The New Day and the Prime Time Players from ringside. Kofi argues with the referee for tossing The New Day. Neville uses the distraction, hits an enziguiri and the Red Arrow to score the pin. 

- King Barrett vs. Zack Ryder: The match closes out with Ryder going for the Broski Boot, but Barrett rolls to the floor. Ryder chases Barrett back into the ring. Barrett kicks Ryder and hangs him over the ropes. Barrett connects with a Bullhammer and scores the pin.

- John Cena is in the ring with a microphone. Cena says his matches with Kevin Owens have been great, but Owens is a garbage of a human being. Cena says he'll still act like a proper fighting champion and offers Owens to come get some. Owens comes out and says he doesn't care what people think, he's all about winning championship's, has beaten Cena once already and will gladly take Cena's WWE United States Championship. Owens speaks in French, stating he'll beat Cena and become the new champion. Cena says he doesn't have to say it in French, officially announces their next match at WWE Battleground will be for the United States Championship and says he's kicking Owens' ass.

- Backstage, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon tell Seth Rollins to forget about the others. Rollins wants The Authority to be a family again. Stephanie suggests an apology. Rollins thinks they mean he gets the apology but Triple H corrects that. Triple H says Rollins is scared, scared of Brock Lesnar. Triple H says he's smart to be scared of Lesnar, a smart man has a fool proof plan and apologizes. Saying "I'm sorry" goes a long way and getting his "family" back will be helpful if Lesnar shows up later.

- Naomi and Tamina vs. The Bella Twins (w/Alicia Fox): The match closes out with Naomi hitting the Rear View and Tamina goes after Nikki. Nikki shoves Tamina into Naomi, who accidentally hits Tamina. Nikki then hits Rack Attack and picks up the pin.

- Ryback vs. Mark Henry: Big Show is on commentary. The match closes out with Ryback going for the Meat Hook. Henry counters and kicks Ryback in the face. Henry goes for the World's Strongest Slam, but Ryback escapes and hits the Meat Hook. Ryback hits a splash on Henry and scores the pin. After the match, Show argues with Henry about losing and Henry shoves Show.

- Backstage, Big Show interrupts Ryback's interview and calls Ryback a little boy. Ryback says Show is all talk and no action. Show and Ryback begin brawling and it ends with Ryback tossing Show into some backstage equipment and leaving Show laid out.

- Adam Rose (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. Dolph Ziggler (w/Lana): The match closes out with Ziggler hitting a super kick on Rose and scoring the pin. After the match, Rusev is shown flipping out and throwing his crutches as Ziggler and Lana make out again. Summer Rae appears, picks up Rusev's crutches, hands them to him and it appears they may be starting an alliance.

- Seth Rollins is in the ring with a microphone. Rollins lays out heartfelt apologies to Mercury, Noble and Kane and pleads for them to take him back. Brock Lesnar's music hits and out comes Lesnar. The Authority ditch Rollins and leave him alone with Lesnar. Kane, however, returns and jumps Brock from behind. Brock lays out Kane and then Mercury and Noble. Brock grabs Rollins and hits three german suplexes. Brock goes for the F-5, but Kane stops it by choke slamming Brock. Brock gets back up, hits a knee and a german suplex on Kane. Brock goes for another F-5 on Rollins, but Kane stops it again, taking out Brock's knees. Rollins works over Brock's knees and Kane hits his knees with a steel chair. Brock tries to fight back, but Rollins hits a top rope Curb Stomp on Brock. Kane plants Brock with a choke slam and Rollins finishes Brock off with a Pedigree to end RAW.
