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 Dallas, Texas and served as the go home show to this Sunday's WWE Hell In A Cell. Some highlights to this weeks show included: The Legends! Hall of Famer's "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and "Nature Boy" Ric Flair were in attendance. The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar had one last face to face before they step inside the Hell In A Cell together on Sunday. The Authority put Corporate Kane on suspension.

Undertaker arrives and says he'll make Brock Lesnar's worst fears look like heaven at Hell In A Cell. Lesnar's music hits and out comes "The Beast" and Paul Heyman, onto the stage. Heyman says it's ironic that both Taker and Lesnar are going into the cell looking for revenge. Taker says that when you take everything from a man, then he now has nothing to lose.
