By @B_Rock1978

What's up gang, welcome back to Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. All my moving is complete, I'm back from a week off of recapping and I'm now officially residing in Newton, North Carolina. But that's not why you came here. You came here for last night's RAW recap.....right? That's right, so let's get the show on the road shall we? Last night's RAW took place live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as WWE moved closer to WWE Tables, Ladders and Chairs in just a few short weeks.

What would The Authority and their new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus, throw at #1 contender, Roman Reigns, tonight? The Dudley Boys look to even things up with The Wyatt Family as they laid down a challenge. Rusev and Lana make their first public appearance together since announcing their engagement, on Miz TV. Is Charlotte turning into her father, by becoming the female version of the dirtiest player in the game?

- The New Day and Sheamus Promo: RAW kicks off with WWE World Tag Team Champions, The New Day. We get confetti falling from the rafters as New Day plan a celebration. Big E takes a minute to wipe his brow, blow his nose and threatens to shove a Steelers Terrible Towel down his pants. New Day next introduce WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus, who arrives in suit and tie attire. Sheamus gives props to New Day and thanks The Authority. Sheamus takes a moment to also thank Roman Reigns and mocks Reigns' 5 minute and 15 second title reign.

- Miz TV: With Special Guests Rusev and Lana: Miz mentions Rusev being injured and was unable to compete in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship tournament. The fans chant USA and chant for Lana, irritating Rusev. Rusev tells the fans to shut up and Lana is his. Rusev says no one sent him get well wishes, but Lana nursed him back to health. Lana finally arrives and says their engagement was the happiest day of her life, she and Rusev fought hard but loved each other harder, she never went all the way with Dolph Ziggler and her heart belongs to Rusev.
