Seth Rollins On When He Doubted His Career, Finding Confidence, More

– WWE Superstar Seth Rollins was recently a guest on ESPN Fayetteville to help promote WWE’s live events last weekend, check out the highlights below:

On having doubt about his career following his devastating knee injury:

“Probably after my knee injury. It was a pretty devastating knee injury, with the MCL, ACL, and meniscus all getting ripped and having to be surgically repaired. There was a lot of doubt as far as where do I fit in when I come back, can I physically handle the wear and tear of what we do. Am I going to be the same performer as I was before, am I going to be skittish.

“A lot of confidence had to be rebuilt from a lot of different areas, and I’m still working on that. But, at the same time, a lot of those questions have been answered. So, for me, that was probably the one time in the last six, seven, eight years where I’ve really been like, ‘Can I still compete at the level that I want to compete at?’”

On returning from injury:

“Once I got back in the ring, it was a completely different story. I felt the rush of adrenaline, and that got my through pretty much everything. It gave me the confidence that I needed. It felt like riding a bike again.”

WWE RAW Coverage ** IN PROGRESS ** – No. 1 Contenders Match, Kurt Angle Storyline

– Thanks for joining us for live coverage of WWE RAW from Washington, DC, we will begin tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET (7:00 CT) courtesy of Richard Trionfo.

Tonight’s show will feature Bayley vs. Sasha Banks in a No. 1 Contenders match, the winner will face Alexa Bliss for the WWE RAW Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.

We start off with a look back at last week’s main event when Braun Strowman got involved in the match between Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns to see who would face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.

We are in Washington, D.C. and your announcers are Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Booker T.

Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring.

Kurt welcomes everyone to Raw and for the past few months he has been dealing with a private matter that has taken up his time and affected his ability to act as Raw General Manager. Last week, he made it public and introduced the son he never thought he had and newest member of the Raw roster, Jason Jordan. Kurt says he was terrified, but when he saw Jason make his way down the aisle, he knew it was the right decision. He has spent a lot of time with Jason and tonight, he will have his first match on Raw.

Kurt says he gave Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns the opportunity to see who would face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. Braun Strowman got involved. Kurt says he has made a decision. At SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar will face . . .

BRAUN Strowman makes his way to the ring.

Braun says Kurt’s next words out of his mouth better be Braun Strowman or else. Braun says that unlike Roman and Joe, he won at Great Balls of Fire. Braun says he does not fear Brock Lesnar, Brock fears him. At SummerSlam, he will break Brock in half to become the next Universal Champion.

Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring.

Joe says that fortunate for you, we have not crossed paths too many times. Joe introduces himself and he says that he is the man who tamed the beast and was within seconds of putting to sleep at Great Balls of Fire. He does not fear Brock Lesnar. Joe says he does not fear Braun. The only reason he is giving Braun the courtesy over what he did last week is because all Braun did was keep Roman from losing to him for a third straight time.

Joe tells Kurt it is right in front of him. Braun and Roman need to finish what they have started and Joe tells Kurt to give Lesnar to him.

Roman Reigns comes out to the ring.

Roman says it is funny that Joe talks about what he almost did because he hasn’t done anything here. Roman says that Braun hasn’t done anything either. Roman says he has been a tag team champion, a US Champion, a 3 Time WWE Champion, he won the Royal Rumble in Philly, and he has been part of five Wrestlemanias, three that he main evented. The last one is where he retired the Undertaker. Roman wants to know what they have done here. Roman says he will wait.

Roman says you haven’t done anything yet. Now that you know what he has done, let’s see what he is going to do.

Kurt says all of you made valid points. Kurt says he has changed his mind again. Brock Lesnar will be facing Samoa Joe . . . Roman Reigns. . . and Braun Strowman in a Fatal Four Way Match for the Universal Title.

Joe wants to know where Angle is going because we are not done. Kurt says they are done because he says so.

Braun says it does not matter how it is set up, all he cares about is piling bodies. Roman tells Braun to shut up and he punches Braun twice. Strowman grabs Roman and Joe and then Roman and Joe work together and kick Strowman. Braun goes to the floor and Joe and Roman follow. Braun is thrown into the crowd.

Roman and Joe go into the ring and they exchange punches while officials stand at ringside. Strowman with a shoulder tackle to Joe and then he sends Roman shoulder first into the ring post.

Kurt Angle calls for help and security comes to the ring to get beaten up by Braun Strowman. Joe chokes Strowman and Kurt calls for wrestlers to come out and they come to the ring and Strowman backs Joe into the corner and everyone falls down. Reigns spears Strowman and Reigns fights off the wrestlers.

Strowman with a running power slam to Reigns.

We go to commercial.

Jim Ross Gives His Thoughts On WWE Battleground

– WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross recently updated his blog section at JrsBarBBQ.com with his thought’s on last night’s WWE Battleground Pay-Per-View:

* Any time two major, main event level matches have little to no ‘near falls’ included due to the structure of their match i.e. the Punjabi Prison bout and the Flag Match, it’s a risky premise. I’m still not sure that I could pass a quiz on the rules of the Punjabi Prison match which had challenging sight lines for TV through all the bamboo, etc. Those basic challenges can make it hard for the live audience to emotionally invest.

* Enjoyed the AJ-Owens bout but was expecting a bit more from two of my favorite athletes currently in the business. The match was far from ‘bad’ but it was lacking a bit of ‘magic,’ for the lack of a better term or description. Nonetheless if I was starting a ‘territory’ I’d love to have them both on any roster that I would comprise.

* Surprised that Nattie won the women’s bout but not displeased. Many fans are complaining that Charlotte did not win but that was not a concern for me as its simply a matter of getting more talents, in this case Nattie, better ready for higher profile bookings.

* Charlotte is ‘ready’ whether she won Sunday night or not but Charlotte needs more, viable opponents going forward and Nattie, for one, can certainly fill that void.

Tonight’s WWE RAW Preview: The Road To Summerslam Starts Now

– Tonight’s WWE RAW will take place from the Verizon Center in Washington, DC as the road to WWE SummerSlam starts to heat up.

EXCLUSIVE: @FinnBalor seeks retribution against @IAmSamsonWWE in the form of a #NoDisqualification Match TONIGHT on #RAW! pic.twitter.com/hquLunR6rE

— WWE (@WWE) July 24, 2017

Can Ambrose and Rollins co-exist?
Can Ambrose maintain his tenuous alliance with Rollins long enough to get retribution on the Intercontinental Champion and his #squad? Or will the duo implode once again?

Summer of Bliss
Monday’s matchup puts The Boss and The Huggable One on a familiar collision course, with the Women’s division’s top prize at stake. With Bayley on the rebound and The Boss holding strong, which Horsewoman will ride into Brooklyn for a date with Little Miss Bliss?

Father knows best

Now that Jason Jordan has been revealed as Angle’s son, the former Tag Team Champion has an opportunity to develop under the learning tree of one of the all-time greats. How quickly will this American prodigy make his mark on Team Red?

Third time’s the charm
This week, the two rivals meet for Round 3 in a No Disqualification bout that’s sure to bring down the house as effectively as any of Samson’s ballads. Who will walk out with their hand raised high?

Not finished with you
Braun Strowman’s miraculous return left both Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe in ruins. More importantly, it also left the WWE Universe without a definitive answer as to who will challenge Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. Kurt Angle promised an answer at the outset of his WWE Network interview following the conclusion of last week’s show, and with both Reigns and Joe angling for another opportunity at The Conqueror, it’s likely they will demand one at the earliest possible moment. What will the answer be?
