WWE has announced that on Tuesday March 21st, The Usos will challenge American Alpha for the Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship ahead of WrestleMania 33.
See WWE’s announcement below:
Some fans have been speculating as of late if Smackdown Live Tag team Champions Chad Gable and Jason Jordan will defend their championships at WrestleMania 33. They have had a minor feud with the Usos as of late, but with very little buildup.
It’s expected that a match will be made between the two teams for Wrestlemania 33 as we inch closer to the event. There is potential that it may be a kickoff match.
WWE.com posted the following, confirming reports that Zack Ryder injured his knee during the Smackdown Tag Team Battle Royal:
On the Dec. 13 episode of SmackDown LIVE, Zack Ryder suffered an injury to his left knee. The injury took place when Long Island Iced-Z attempted a Rough Ryder in the same contest in which The Hype Bros won a Tag Team No. 1 Contenders’ Battle Royal. This victory gave them the right to challenge SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Wyatt Family.
After the match, Ryder was carried to the trainer’s room and is currently on crutches.
“We think he injured his kneecap or his patella. We think it popped out and then popped back in, so we’re just going to do an MRI to make sure that there is not cartilage damage or some tendon tearing, stuff like that,” according to WWE’s Dr. Chris Robinson. “Hopefully there’s not and it’ll be a shorter rehab period. If there is, there’s a different road we might have to go down that may take longer to get him to recover.”
Check back to WWE.com tomorrow for an update following Ryder’s MRI.
Ryder who was attended to by medical staff was pulled from the Tribute to the Troops taping following Smackdown live.
During the Smackdown Talking Smack Segment, The Usos who are also out on injury offered to take the place as the new #1 contenders for the Tag Titles if the the Hype Bros can not compete. When Daniel mentioned Jey’s ankle and if he could compete, this is what they had to say:
“It’s gonna be right. I’m gonna tape it and put some wood on it. Then I’m going to tape the wood to it and wrap some wire on it because we are going to go!”

Welcome my Wargods to another episode of Monday Night Raw. With another episode of Raw comes another edition of the GREATEST RECAP ON THE INTERNET! MOC Bitches!
Sorry I got a bit excited there. Tonight Shane McMahon makes his return to Raw to shine some light on his upcoming match against the Undertaker at WrestleMania 32. Triple H will for sure have a message for Dean Ambrose heading into their 1-on-1 match at WWE Roadblock for the WWE title, and all in all I’m pretty sure more shenanigans and stuff will happen.
Make sure to refresh the page for the latest up-to-date details.
Just like last week expect a limited recap, meaning I won’t go into specifics about what is happening during the matches. But expect full detail in backstage segments or promo’s just because those are the story drivers. So let’s strap ourselves in as WWE Raw begins!
Now a quick note, it’s been reported today that there is a surprise in line for Raw. Not sure exactly what it is, but we’ll find out together.
Now considering Hogan was center of today news due to his civil lawsuit against Gawker, I plan on doing a Hogan themed recap maybe to keep his spirit high!
What to come for tonight’s Raw broadcast?
AJ Styles & Chris Jericho vs. The New Day (c)
-WWE Tag Team Championship-
Tag Team Match
Big Boss Man gets inducted into the 2016 Hall of Fame
Shane arrives on Raw and is said to kick off the show.
VIDEO: Raw starts with a video vignette from last week when Undertaker warned Vince that Shane’s blood will be on his hands following WrestleMania 32.
Opener: Shane McMahon’s “here’s comes the money” begins and the audience give him a huge pop!
Shane gets on the mic but stares off at the “Shane O’ Mac” chants beginning from the audience. They give him a great ovation. Shane says it’s overwhelming and thanks them. Shane references last Monday night on Raw when Vince & Taker had their segment. Shane references the “son of a bitch” comment and says that he lost a ton of respect for his father. Shane calls Vince a maniacal old bastard and that he’s lost his touch with the business, fan base, reality, Shane and his grandsons. But, Shane uses Vince’s words to get pissed off. Shane says it is his destiny to be in control of Raw and says that it’s all going to stop. The chairman’s grasp on everything, the Authority, backstabbing, and backstage politics will stop; because it’s choking the life out of this business.
Shane continues saying how there are a ton of talented guys who are never used in the back, but yet those un-talented guys are seen every week. Shane says that he will win at Wrestlemania and dawn a new legacy on Monday Night Raw… all of a sudden the Undertakers bell tolls and the lights go out. The audience get excited for the Undertaker, but Vince’s music hits and he comes out to stand on the stage.
Vince laughs at the audience and asks if they’re disappointed… By this time an “asshole” chant begins. I guess they are.
Vince says that Shane had fear in his lights when the bell tolled. All of a sudden CM Punk chant begins and Vince laughs asking “how long will this go on for?” The audience stops and Vince smirks. Vince focuses on Shane and says that at WrestleMania he will face fear in the Hell in a cell match. Vince recalls when he was writing Shane out of his will and found a picture of them a long time ago where Vince was taking Shane to his first ever wrestling event. Vince shows that he has the photo in his hands, throws down the frame and steps on the photo claiming that Vince renounced Shane and that he never had a son. Vince says that in the end he’s Vincent Kennedy McMahon, whereas Shane is nothing but; Vince’s son.
Vince now focuses on Shane’s children, Vince’s grandsons and says that at WrestleMania they will witness Shane’s failure and that at WrestleMania when Shane is taken to the hospital Vince will hug them and tell them that they have at least one father figure in their life.
Vince ends his promo saying that at WrestleMania, his greatest creation puts to rest his greatest failure. Vince calls out security and they rush the ring to take out Shane. Shane warns security to not touch him and that he’ll walk out peacefully. But from the stage Vince yells at the security to “get him out of there.” They step in and Shane warns them. One security guard steps in and tries to remove Shane but Shane fights back landing punch after punch after punch and completely takes out all 4 security members. Shane calls for Vince to enter the ring, but Vince walks away to the back, ending the opening segment.
Kevin Owens (c) vs. Neville
Non Title Singles Match
Winner: Kevin Owens
Owens keeps the advantage during match which allows him to mock and taunt Neville and Michael Cole at ringside. The audience seem pretty supportive of both Owens and Neville as they know these two are great indie performers, and have had a ton of great matches before and overall respect what they do.
Neville lands several great high flying moves which get the audience hot for him and was about to go for his Red Arrow but Owens gets in a roll up and gets the win.
Post Match: Following the win Owens attacks Neville from behind and takes him to the outside. Owens is about to powerbomb Neville on the outside when Sami Zayn’s music hit and both Zayn and Owens begin to brawl at ringside. Owens takes Zayn into the ring but Zayn comes back with more punches to the head. Both men stand off in the middle of the ring and Owens looks to run away but Neville hits a stiff kick to the head, allowing Zayn to clothesline Owens out of the ring. Sami and Neville celebrate in the ring and Sami’s return to Raw.
Announcers: They hype the FreeWrestlemania month where if you sign up now you can get WWE Roadblock and WrestleMania for free.
They send us off to a video vignette of Triple H taking out Roman Reigns and accepting Dean’s challenge for the WWE title at Roadblock.
Backstage: Ziggler and Zack Ryder chat until Stephanie McMahon comes in and Steph wants to talk to Ziggler. They mention a tweet from earlier where Ziggler had to remove it due to it being directly against the Authority… MOC missed this. But anyways, Ziggler references Survivor Series where he beat the Authority and says that at WrestleMania it will be a mirror because Authority will be out of power once again. Stephanie calls him delusional and makes a match for later on. Elimination Tag Team match pinning Dolph Ziggler against Three members of the League of Nations.
Brie Bella vs. Summer Rae
Divas Singles Match
Winner: Summer Rae
I’m more then happy to not recap this match considering this is a Total Divas story?
Lana came out half way through the match which allowed Summer to take advantage and get the win via a roll-up.
Post-Match: Lana came into the ring after the match and connected Brie’s face-smash move on her. That is all.
Promo: Dean Ambrose is out next to address the attack from last week at the hands of Triple H. Ambrose stands in the ring and says that the road to WrestleMania was free and clear but Ambrose has changed things up threatening to screw everything up. Ambrose says that it’s bad timing but doesn’t care what Triple H’s plans were, or Roman Reigns for that matter. On Saturday Dean is hijacking the road to WrestleMania whether anyone likes it or not. Dean says that his bad attitude gave him a beat down from Triple H last week. Dean laughs “Nice Try!” Dean says that Triple H will respect him at WWE Roadblock when he beats Triple H and will become the new face of the company. Dean and Triple H will attends meetings together and charity events.
Dean says that being the WWE Champion he will lay his body out every night and week to be the champion the WWE fans deserve. All of a sudden Triple H’s music hits and he comes out to the ramp. Triple H laughs at Dean and calls his visions of a win at Roadblock is nothing but a fantasy. Triple H says that the WWE title will stick with him for as long as he wants. Triple H threatens that Dean needs a trip to the announcers table once again to get some respect beaten into him. When Dean wins he tells Triple H that he can suck it.
Triple H laughs and calls Roadblock a clever name that some idiot in marketing came up with. Dean is not a roadblock, but at best a speed bump or a pot hole. He compared Dean to Roman and asks “how’s the anti-Authority thing working out for Roman?” Triple H laughs and says that that when you face Authority, you will lose and get hurt… permanently. Triple H and Dean go back and forth on the mic and Dean asks for Triple H to step into the ring so he can hear him better.
Triple H begins slowly walking to the ring but stops half way through and mocks the audience asking if he should enter the ring. Triple H stops and says that he fights on his time and that Ambrose will get his shot on Saturday; but until then Triple H will do what successful people do. Triple H delegates that Ambrose goes 1-on-1 with the new face of fear Bray Wyatt. Dean will come face-to-face with reality and will find out that the Authority always wins.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus, Rusev & Bad News Barrett
Elimination Handicap Tag Match
Winner: Rusev, Sheamus & Bad News Barrett
As you would expect Ziggler pretty much gets beat down for the first 7 minutes of the match showcasing that he’s at a disadvantage.
Ziggler manages to get the advantage over some LON members and manages to eliminate King Barrett with a super kick.
King Barrett Eliminated
Following the elimination Sheamus and Rusev get the upper hand and both manage to get the upper-hand. Rusev hits a side head kick and Sheamus ends it with the Brogue kick giving the LON the win.

Hogan Did It
Backstage: Kalisto gets interviewed by JoJo and asks what he wants to experience for his first ever upcoming WrestleMania appearance. Kalisto says it has been a dream of his to be in front of millions of people. WrestleMania will be a moment to live forever. All of a sudden Ryback came in and asks JoJo why he isn’t in the main event of Wrestlemania. Ryback mocks Kalisto’s size and says him winning it not believable but still says he’s a champion. Ryback gives some advise and tells Kalisto to not be in a tag team as that holds you back.
Ryback will give him a sample about being on your own when he tears the wings off the Social Outcast.

Announcers: Recap the opener of Raw featuring Shane McMahon and Vince McMahon.

Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt
Winner: Dean Ambrose via DQ
Before the match can begin Bray gets on the titon-tron and says that at Roadblock he has a chance to do what Dean could not. He will conquer the conqueror and will destroy him. Tonight Bray will use Dean as an example to show how dangerous Bray can be. He then goes off and enters the arena alone.
Interesting to note that the Wyatt family members are not at ringside with Bray.
The match was a good back and forth. Dean appeared to have the upper hand but near the end the lights go out and the rest of the Wyatt family, Braun, Harper and Rowan come out and attack Dean Ambrose causing the DQ.
The Wyatt’s stand above Dean as Triple H’s music hits and he makes his way out. The Wyatt’s stand facing HHH as he makes his way into the ring. HHH walks around the downed Ambrose until Bray gets in his face. The audience seem to accept this and begin a YES chant but Bray backs off and takes his family out of the ring and up the ramp. Leaving HHH and Dean in the ring.
HHH throws away the title and gets into his fight mode and glances over at the announcers table. Triple H strips the table and prepares it to taste Dean’s blood. He goes back into the ring but Ambrose quickly gets up and hits his Dirty Deeds finisher laying out the COO of the company. Ambrose picks up the WWE title and celebrates with it in the middle of the ring as Raw comes to an end.
There you go folks, that is your Raw. I’ll have highlights up tomorrow, and I’ll also be releasing my prediction for Saturday’s Roadblock WWE Network special this week.
Thank for reading!
Here are your highlights from last night’s Raw
— WWE may be giving Roman Reigns’ stable with Dean Ambroseand The Usos the name of “The Family.” The foursome is feuding with Sheamus’ League of Nations right now.
— The Hype Bros. appear to be working WWE main roster house shows this coming weekend. Zack Ryder posted the following:
The Usos will be appearing on ESPN’s SportsCenter tonight in the 9pm EST hour with Jonathan Coachman. WWE originally had Divas Champion Charlotte advertised before announcing The Usos.
According to a new report by WWE.com, Jey Uso has undergone surgery to repair issues with his shoulder. The story notes that the injuries happened at WrestleMania, but they are referring to the injury angle done early in the match to get him out of the action.
WWE physician Dr. Stephen Daquino stated that Jey suffered an anterior shoulder dislocation on the left arm. He underwent surgery last week to tighten his rotator cuff and shoulder capsule to repair the injury, which had been bothering him prior to WrestleMania.
At this time, it is estimated that he will be out for six months.
Here is the full article from WWE.com:
Former WWE Tag Team Champion Jey Uso has undergone surgery to repair recent injuries suffered in action at WrestleMania 31 Kickoff, causing him to be removed from the Fatal 4-Way WWE Tag Team Championship Match.
“At WrestleMania, Jey suffered an anterior shoulder dislocation on the left arm, which was later evaluated back in Florida,” said WWE physician Dr. Stephen Daquino, who also confirmed that Jey underwent surgery last week to tighten his rotator cuff and shoulder capsule to repair the injury, which had been aggravating him leading into WrestleMania.
While Jey hasn’t been seen in action since WrestleMania, Dr. Daquino was able to provide a soft timetable for the dynamic Superstar’s return.
“It looks like [his] return is estimated [at] about six months.”

Second Hour Of WrestleMania Kickoff:
The second hour starts with the panel re-introducing themselves and sends us off to Jerry Lawler, JBL and Michael Cole to begin the tag team championship match.
Tyson Kidd & Cesaro (c) vs. New Day vs. Los Matadores vs. The Usos (WWE Tag Team Championship)
New days comes to the ring bearing new neon green & White attire instead of the blue, Big E and Kofi Kingston will represent The New Day.
With the sun bearing down on them Cesaro and Kofi begin the match with a quick clinch and Cesaro starting it off aggressively with a few punches and European uppercuts. Kofi gets the upper hand with a dropkick and sends Cesaro into the Los Matadores corner. Fernando tags in and Cesaro climbs out of the ring annoyed. Cesaro meanwhile grabs Jey and throws him into the barricade shoulder first. Fernando and Kofi exchange a few quick back and forth’s and Diego tags in and tries to connect a few punches to Kofi. Kofi drags to the corner and Cesaro reaches and tags himself in by Diego. At ringside Jey was taken to the locker room after being thrown into the barricade.
Kidd tags in and both Cesaro and Kidd wear down Matadores and New Day. Jimmy gets a tag by Kofi and super kicks Cesaro, Kidd, Fernando & Big E and connects his hip attacks on all 4 corners. Kofi comes in and ducks a super kick by Jimmy and springboards on the outside on Cesaro. In the ring Jimmy lands a super kick to Kidd who spring boarded into the ring and got a close 2 count. Kidd gets to his feet and Jimmy manages to throw him. He tries for a suicide dive and got tagged by Big E in the process. Cesaro stops the suicide dive and tries for a pin. Big E take him out and all teams get into the ring brawling it out. IN one corner Cesaro suplexes Big E into the ring, and Jimmy tries to suplex Fernando. Fernando counters throws Jimmy onto Big E and the Los Matadores connect a double maneuver (Power bomb to Back Breaker). At this point all members get into the ring again and we lose track as who the legal guy is. Naomi, Xavier, and El Torito also get involved and yet the referee doesn’t DQ them. This goes on until each member of each team come and deliver finisher after finisher on another competitors. We also a debut of a modified 3D where Tyson lifted Fernando and dropped him on Cesaro’s European Uppercut. At one point all members to one corner again and double electric chair & double superplex connects leaving the audience to get loud.
Jimmy gets to the top rope and connects a frog splash but Cesaro runs in throwing Jimmy out of the ring and pins Big E for the 1..2..3! Who knows who was legal there?
Apparently Cesaro got a blind tag when Jimmy jumped for his frog splash.
Winners: Cesaro & Tyson Kidd (Retain)
