Listen, it’s okay. We’re all wrestling fans here, you can admit it. Raw is a three hour long show on a Monday night. You’ve probably got work in the morning. Plus, you just watched Takeover and SummerSlam this weekend. That’s a lot of wrestling in a short period of time. Maybe you switched over to the ball game during a commercial break and forget to switch back. Maybe you fell asleep on the couch. Maybe you got distracted playing Heroes of the Storm and suddenly the show was over. We understand, and we’re here to help, because if you missed Raw this week, well, you missed a lot, and you need to know all the important things that happened.
10. Brock Bo-lieves
So, officially, despite there being a mountain of video evidence of Undertaker tapping out that was so clear that the timekeeper saw it from outside the ring, Brock Lesnar lost at SummerSlam. And he’s understandably a little upset about that. And when Brock gets upset, Paul Heyman talks a lot more than usual, probably because if Paul is talking, it means Brock isn’t hurting people. After all, when Brock lost the WWE World Heavyweight title at WrestleMania, he attacked several people and put Michael Cole in the hospital the next day. It would take a truly delusional person to attempt to talk any sense into Brock Lesnar last night. Fortunately, Bo Dallas is pretty delusional, and apparently, also suicidal. And while Bo might not have been the Dead Man that Brock was looking for, he ended up doing a pretty darned good imitation of one. Maybe Paul Heyman telling the broken body of Bo Dallas that Brock truly does “Bo-lieve” after delivering five German suplexes and an F5 to the Inspirational One was all Bo needed to make his sacrifice worthwhile. But I doubt it.
