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 Tampa, Florida. WWE was hesitant about tonight's show with Tropical Storm Erika hitting the mainland. Luckily everything worked out to get tonight's show in.

- Sting Responds To Seth Rollins: Sting kicks off RAW in the ring for a promo. Sting says he went toe to toe with Triple H, a man who had the guts to shake his hand after their Wrestlemania match, but now its Seth Rollins time. Sting says Rollins is no Triple H, he's a sellout, half the man Triple H is and will be in for a hell of a ride at Night Of Champions.

- Backstage, Seth Rollins complains to Stephanie McMahon about what Sting said. Stephanie says that one day Rollins might make legend status like Triple H. Rollins implies that he's on legend status too and demands to know where it went. Stephanie tells Rollins to go ask Sting.

- Dolph Ziggler defeated Rusev, by DQ: The match closes out with both Ziggler and Rusev on the floor brawling. Ziggler and Rusev slam each other in to the steel steps and take it back to the ring. Rusev stomps on Ziggler's back and goes for The Accolade submission. Ziggler counters and nails the Zig Zag. Summer Rae breaks up the pin and attacks Ziggler, causing the DQ. Lana attacks Summer and lands a kick on Summer before Ziggler pulls Lana off.

- Backstage, Dolph Ziggler says he won but doubts he's seen the last of Rusev and Summer Rae. Ziggler heads into his dressing room to shower and we see Summer sneak in after.

- Nikki Bella brags about soon to being the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion and unveils the BellaTron countdown clock.

- Becky Lynch defeated Alicia Fox, by submission, in a Beat The Clock Challenge: The match closes out with Alicia reversing a Becky scoop slam. Becky comes back, rolls through and applies the Disarm-Her submission. Alicia taps out and Becky clocks in at 3:21.

- Backstage, Ryback is being interviewed when Summer Rae runs by acting petrified. Dolph Ziggler appears in a towel, goes back into his dressing room and punches the door.

- Ryback defeated Big Show, by pinfall, to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship: The Miz was at commentary for this match. The match closes out with Ryback press slamming Show off the top rope. Ryback goes for the Meathook, but Show hits a spear for a near fall. Show signals for the knockout punch, when suddenly Miz distracts Show from the outside. Ryback hits Shell Shock on Show after the distraction and scores the pinfall.

- Charlotte defeated Brie Bella, by pinfall, in a Beat The Clock Challenge: The match closes out with Charlotte locking on the Figure Eight submission on Brie, but Brie makes it to the ropes. Brie lands a kick on Charlotte, but Charlotte fires back and hits Natural Selection to score the pinfall. Charlotte clocks in with the lead at 1:41.

- Kevin Owens defeated Cesaro, by pinfall: The match closes out with Owens shoulder tackling Cesaro on the floor and ribs first into the commentary table. The referee checks on Cesaro, but Cesaro says he's fine. Cesaro goes for the Cesaro Swing on Owens, but Owens lands more rib shots on Cesaro, breaking up the move. Owens lands the pop up power bomb on Cesaro and scores the pinfall.

- Backstage, Dolph Ziggler explains to Lana what happened. Ziggler says all he did was step out of the shower, Summer Rae was watching and then ran out of the dressing room screaming, after Ziggler yelled at her to get out. Ziggler swears nothing happened. Lana shakes her head and leaves. 

- Braun Strowman vs. Dean Ambrose ends in a no contest: The match closes out with Strowman and Ambrose brawling on the floor. Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns get involved, forcing the referee to throw the match out. After the match, Strowman tosses Reigns into the timekeepers area and tosses Ambrose across ringside. Back in the ring, Strowman takes punches from Reigns and steel chair shots from Ambrose, but it has no effect on the monster. Strowman chokes out Reigns and Ambrose and then hits a spinning slam on Reigns. Bray next grabs Reigns and hits Sister Abigail.

- Backstage, Seth Rollins says he's going to call out Sting and show Sting who he is. Triple H may be a legend, but Rollins says he's a dual champion and he's the man now.

- Paige vs. Sasha Banks in a Beat The Clock Challenge, ends after time expires and Paige fails to beat Sasha in under 1:41: The match closes out with Paige hitting Ram-Paige on Sasha. Naomi and Tamina grab Sasha and pull her out to the floor to waste time. Paige gets Sasha back in the ring, but time expires before Paige can get Sasha to tap out to PTO. Charlotte wins the Beat The Clock Challenge and will receive a WWE Divas Championship Match against Nikki Bella.

- Backstage, we see a video of Summer Rae explaining her side of the story of what happened with her and Dolph Ziggler. Summer says Dolph tried to proposition her, but ran away because she cares for Rusev. Lana sees the video and leaves, crying.

- Dudley Boys defeated The New Day, by pinfall: The New Day reveal a bubble wrapped table and stated to "Save The Tables". The match closes out with Xavier Woods trying to interfere, but Bubba takes Woods out. Kofi Kingston stops Wazzup from happening, but gets planted with the 3D. The Dudleys pick up the pinfall. After the match, The Dudleys look to put Big E through the bubble wrapped table, but The New Day escape.

- Seth Rollins Calls Out Sting: Rollins is in the ring and demands Sting take back what he said about Triple H and demands his statue he never got. Stephanie McMahon interrupts and tells Rollins that he needs to stop and especially stop talking about Triple H. Stephanie says Rollins is the man and he's letting Sting get in his head. Rollins demands Sting to come out, but John Cena comes out instead. Cena says Rollins needs to stop trusting The Authority, The Authority are not Rollins' friends and all Rollins is...is the latest flavor.
Cena states that every title will be defended at Night Of Champions, so Cena wants his United States Championship rematch. Before Rollins can answer, Stephanie makes the match official. Rollins argues with Stephanie as Sting appears. RAW closes out with Rollins having a stare down with John Cena and Sting with both of his championships now on the line at Night Of Champions.
