Owens and Reigns couldn’t get along during the entire match. Owens refused to tag Roman at first, and when Reigns had Sheamus set up for a Superman Punch, Owens tagged him in, but Reigns had words with him, Sheamus hit Brogue Kick, and Reigns nails a spear on Sheamus, getting the win.
Winners: Reigns and Owens, via pinfall.
Segment Number 3: Jericho, Reigns, and Strowman
Jericho told the other two that they must be on the same page, like his best friend Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns. Out of the goodness of Jericho’s good heart, he gave them both a gift. The scarf of Jericho…try in on, man. Rollins isn’t a scarf guy. He will see them later tonight. Braun and Jericho will wear their scarf. Braun wants the scarf Jericho is wearing. To keep team unity alive, Jericho will give Braun his scarf, and Braun ripped it up. He doesn’t like scarfs, and he doesn’t like Jericho.

Next: Face-To-Face: Lesnar and Goldberg
Segment Number 9: Goldberg and Lesnar
Security is in the ring, and we have “THE BEAST” come out first. And here comes Goldberg.
The Goldberg chants are in full effect here in Buffalo.
Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman….Goldberg cuts him off, saying this has nothing to do with Paul Heyman. This is about Goldberg and Lesnar. Goldberg has a point, which is why Goldberg should consider his opinion. Goldberg wants these rent-a-cops out of the ring, so the only two real men in the ring can get it on.
Goldberg chants again.
Heyman will start over here. Ladies and gentlemen, his name is….SHUT UP!! Paul Heyman, and these brave men are not rent-a-cops. They are here for Goldberg’s protection, because they all can chant Goldberg’s name. Ladies and gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and my client….BRRRRROOOOOCCK LESNAR!! should be the only thing on his mind, because these men won’t be here Sunday to save his ass. And if he doesn’t know, then why don’t you ask “The Phenom” about this, or an ICON like John Cena…..
Goldberg cuts him off, and says Brock has conquered many men before, but he hasn’t conquered him, and that eats at Brock. He heard what Brock said about his family, and he can stick that list up his ass.
If you don’t have the respect for Brock, then maybe he can think about his family, and Goldberg makes this simple, the next time Heyman brings up his family, he’s going to rip into Heyman’s hand, and feed it to Brock.
Heyman apologized for raising his voice at Goldberg, but look at the advertisement of Survivor Series, “Fantasy Warfare Just Got Real”, and Goldberg loves to be a superhero, so that is fantasy. But facing “The Beast” is real. And he wants Goldberg to think about this offer, the crowd chants Goldberg. And ladies and gentlemen, you’re pissing off my beast. Mr. Goldberg, with all due respect, fantasy and real. Back off from this challenge, go back to fantasy. And Heyman can find a suitable opponent for his client to victimize. Go back home, and get your kid a WWE Network gift card.
Goldberg rips his shirt off, and he looks in great shape. Heyman assures Goldberg that if he goes with this match, he will be victimized, conquered, and defeated by his client so bad that his kid will call Brock Daddy.
Goldberg now fights off the security, and orders the guys to leave the ring. Lesnar takes his shirt off, ready to go, but backs down. He will do this on his own time.
This Sunday, Goldberg Vs Lesnar: Fantasy Warfare just got real.
Tonight: Survivor Series Summit
Next: Women’s Tag Team Match
Match Number 5: Charlotte (WWE Raw Women’s Champion) and Sasha Banks Vs Alicia Fox and Nia Jax
Sasha and Charlotte could not get along, but the women’s champ and “The Boss” win the match, when Sasha made Alicia Fox tap out to the Bank Statement. Bayley comes in, and gets some peace among the ladies.
Winners: Sasha Banks and Charlotte, via submission
This Saturday: NXT Takeover: Toronto
Tonight: Survivor Series Summit
Segment Number 11: Mick Foley and Team Raw
Mick Foley congratulates all five men winning their matches, despite not getting along. Later tonight, they will address Shane and Daniel. He wants them to stick around for the fireworks show.
My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a bonafide g, and a cetified stud, and you can’t teach that. This man here is Big Cass. He is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that. Badda-Boom, realist guys in the room….HOW YA DOING?
Match Number 6: Enzo, Cass, Gallows, and Anderson Vs The Shining Stars and The Golden Truth
Magic Killer, Gallows and Anderson played games with Enzo and Gallows and won the match.
Winners: Enzo, Cass, Gallows, and Anderson, via pinfall.
Next: The Survivor Series Summit
Segment Number 13: The Survivor Series Summit
Foley and Stephanie bring out Shane and Daniel. They didn’t come out to promote Smackdown’s 900th episode, and the return of The Undertaker. They are also not here to talk about The return of The Cutting Edge.
But they are here to talk about Survivor Series. Stephanie tells them Raw is still the better show. Shane and Daniel discuss the ratings have been good, they have drafted better, Smackdown is the better show. He has seen how Stephanie runs things on the show. Threatening people their jobs, yet Stephanie points out Shane put himself in the Survivor Series match. She calls him a hypocrite, and he is popular because he jumps off things, and panders to the crowd. The very idea though is Shane might cost Team Smackdown the match. Daniel talks about the fans love Mick Foley, who used to jump off things, and pandering to the crowd. Daniel put him in this match because he believes in the leadership qualities Shane has, and he believes in what he can do to the ring. Daniel also thanked Mick for putting the Cruiserweight Division on the line, and Mick said he believes in Brian Kendrick, so they aren’t going anywhere. Mick also talked about how Raw put the women in the main event of Raw, and the main event of Hell in a Cell. Mick didn’t like Daniel’s comment on Raw being lazy and competent. Maybe Daniel was wrong about that, then again, maybe he wasn’t. Shane and Stephanie start arguing, and Steph introduces Team Raw to Shane and Daniel. But Shane has Team Smackdown, so they come face-to-face.
Kevin welcomes AJ to the Kevin Owens Show, where he is the guy. And that title AJ is holding is secondary. AJ reminds him that this is the WWE World Championship. Kevin is just a paper champion. Kevin and AJ go back and forth, and AJ said that he thought he was still on Jericho’s sugartit. Styles has teamed up with Jericho before, and he will wind up either being nailed from behind, or he might be put on “THE LIST”
This is Kevin’s best friend, and they hug it out. Jericho tells AJ you know what happens when you cross Chris Jericho? AJ JUST MADE THE LIST!! And that stupid soccer mom’s hair AJ has? IT JUST MADE THE LIST!!
And what is this? James Ellsworth is here, and HE JUST MADE THE LIST!!
Bray addresses Braun now. He gave Braun the keys to the kingdom, and this is how he pays him? He abanded his brothers, he abonded Bray. And this Sunday, they destroy the monster Bray created. Orton goes face-to-face. Shane said things got interested. Rollins speaks out, and says he saw Braun destroy The New Day. You have THE MAN, The Universal Champion, The Big Man, The Big Dawg, and Jericho all on the same page, and you don’t want to see what Rollins and The Bog Dawg can do when they are on the same page with The Shield.
Ambrose lays the first punch, and we have all 10 men fighting. Jericho takes out AJ, RKO on Jericho, Superman Punch on Orton. Sister Abigail is reversed into a Superman Punch. Styles puts Reigns in a Styles Clash, but Rollins hits a Pedigree. Rollins and Reigns does a Double Powerbomb, flipping AJ out of the ring.
Team Raw stands tall to end the show.
This was a good show here, setting the stage for Survivor Series. I loved Goldberg and Lesnar, and the ending was quite the scene too. Finally Team Raw seems to be on the same page, and how does Smackdown counter to this tomorrow night on SD 900?
What were your thoughts on the show? Send them to me.
