Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, 11.10.15: #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 took place this week in jolly old Manchester, England. The week begins with no WWE World Heavyweight Champion, as Seth Rollins was forced to vacate with an ACL/MCL injury to his leg. WWE announced a tournament to be held at the upcoming Survivor Series, to crown a new champion. Who will be included? Also, with the Seth Rollins injury, WWE sent out an "all hands on deck" call, as WWE is scrambling to get things back on track for Survivor Series. Will we see any surprises or special guests tonight?

- The Authority Address The WWE World Heavyweight Championship Vacancy And Kick Off The Survivor Series Tournament: RAW kicks off with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship placed on a podium and Triple H arrives to explain the situation. Triple H speaks highly of Seth Rollins, applauds everything Rollins did for The Authority, explains Seth Rollins' injury, announces the World Title vacancy and announces a tournament starting tonight, to crown a new champion. Triple H next calls out the #1 Contender, Roman Reigns. Triple H says it's unfair that Reigns has to get back in line for a shot at the title. Triple H, however, offers Reigns a spot in The Authority, be handed the WWE World Title and let everyone else battle in the tournament to decide a new #1 Contender.
Triple H clarifies that Reigns was their original choice and not Seth Rollins. Triple H places the WWE World Title on Reigns' shoulder, trying to sway his decision. Reigns says he's done everything in his life his own way, never took hand outs, will never "sell out" and tells Triple H to shove his offer. Triple H welcomes Reigns back to the end of the line and calls out Reigns' first round opponent, Big Show.
