Hello again wrestling fans, and welcome back to the Raw Talk Recap! After the most recent episode of Monday Night Raw came to an end, WWE taped another episode of Raw Talk, which you can watch now on the WWE Network. Raw Talk is hosted by Kevin Patrick, and his co-host, R-Truth. The guests on the show will be Drew McIntyre, Braun Strowman, Nia Jax, and Shayna Baszler. Now that we’re all caught up on what’s going down, it’s time to talk!
Kevin kicks off the show by hyping this weekends Wrestlemania 37 event, and introduces viewers to the co-host for today, Xavier Woods. The hosts cover all of the highlights from the most recent episode of Raw, until Kevin brings on the first guest, Braun Strowman.
“The Strowman Express” joins the show, and Kevin tells him “this has played out how you want it”. Strowman agrees, and recaps the entire story between he and Shane so far. Strowman says “when Shane steps in that cage he’s fighting millions of people who get abuse for no reason”. Braun says “Shane has a chip on his shoulder about how I’ve came up, and this is for everyone to know that they can overcome”. Braun goes on to say “when you believe in yourself, other people believe in you, and I’m doing for all them”. Strowman closes by saying “all you have to do is wake up and realize you were put on this earth for a reason”. Woods chimes in, and tells Braun “this is a different kind of Braun Strowman”. Braun explains his motivation, and tells Woods “I’m not even supposed to be here”, and tells a story about a serious injury he had back in 2015. Braun tells the story of his surgery, and recovery, and adds “knowing that my aunt is a paraplegic, and seeing hard times is what has made me the man I am”. Braun closes the answer by saying “I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in, inspiring people around the world to be more healthy. Everyone one of you is why I do this. I fight for you”! Kevin wants to talk tactics, and Strowman tells him “I’m sick of chasing him. When the door closes, he’s locked inside the cage with The Monster Among Men”.
Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler
The Woman’s Tag Team Champions, and Reginald join the show, and Kevin says they must be buzzing. Nia says “first of all, don’t be rude to the tag team champs”. Nia demands respect, and Woods asks about the Tag Team Turmoil match. Nia says one team does have her eye, and she’s talking about Natalya and Tamina. Nia says Tamina is a family member, and Natalya is “The Boat”. Nia talks about all of the other teams, and Shayna starts to get annoyed. Shayna tells Kevin “keep your mouth shut”, and Woods asks about Reginald. Shayna tells him “please don’t ask about him, he’s got nothing to do with us”. Kevin asks Shayna “a singles question”, and she says “I could kick the head off of the champion at any time”. Nia adds “whenever Shayna is ready to go for the Raw Women’s Champion, she will”. Woods wants to know about the chemistry between the duo, and Nia tells him “we are similar, and we know how dangerous we can be”. Shayna adds to that, and tells the hosts “we teamed up and its worked”. They then proceed to bicker, and Nia gets mad, before storming off.
The challenger to the WWE Championship joins the show, and Woods points out that Drew has a shirt on for once. Drew “gets serious”, and Kevin asks about King Corbin. Drew talks about when he was stablemates with Lashley and Corbin, and he tells the hosts “that was a physical match, but the Claymore always prevails”. Woods talks about the “insurmountable challenge” Bobby Lashley brings to the table, and wants to know if Drew “has what it takes to defeat Bobby”. Drew responds, and tells Woods “Yes. 100%...”. McIntyre talks about defeating Brock Lesnar last year, and his successful title defenses that followed. Drew says Lashley has been dominant at the same time, and explains “this is a throwback match. We’re going to lay it into each other, but in the end I’ll be WWE Champion once again”. Kevin wonders if Bobby may have any weaknesses, and Drew talks about how Lashley has MVP in his corner. Drew says “there’s no one like Bobby Lashley, except Drew McIntyre”. Drew says “we’re both bringing our A game, but the result will be the same as tonight”. Xavier wants to know what it’s been like for Drew to go on “a journey” over the past year, and Drew explains “it’s been unbelievable”. Drew closes by saying “we know who we are now, and we’re gonna show the world we’re on top of our game right now”.
