Sasha Banks invaded Flair Country to challenge the “Queen” for her women’s title. Plus, we have two stops before Royal Rumble. Those stops got a little more full, this week.

We looked back at last week’s Universal title match. It was Seth Rollins vs Kevin Owens. Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho were both banned from ringside. It was a great match, filled with all kinds of “toys”. In the end, Owens managed to retain his strap. It seriously took me back to the old ECW days. A masked fan atacked Seth. It turned out to be Jericho.

Welcome to Charlotte, NC.

The Highlight Reel:

Jericho’s guest was Kevin Owens. We got a kick out of Jericho calling Owens “The Longest Reigning Universal Champion”. Hell, he’s only the 2nd one and the first guy held it 24 hours or so. Jeez.Owens strolled out to chat with his BFF. Kevin knew he was the first guest to do back to back visits to the Highlight Reel. Kevin insulted the North Carolina crowd and then disrespected Thanksgiving. That got a “U.S.A.” chant going. Kevin then trashed Black Friday. Ok, I have to agree that Black Friday is a stupid concept. They talked about Canada and the Canadian Thanksgiving.

Kevin was thankful to be the Universal Champion. He was also thankful for being the Face of Monday Night Raw. He was also deeply thankful for his best friend, Jericho. Chris was also thankful to have Owens as a best friend. He was thankful for his scarf and Seth Rollins. He said Seth’s pride and ego took over his life and proved exactly what a “Stupid Idiot” truly is. Jericho made the ridiculous claim that Sin Cara was the guy who attacked Seth, while wearing a Chris Jericho mask. Seriously?

Seth Rollins isn’t cleared to compete, this week. However, Roman Reigns is. The U.S. Champ walked out to confront the two Canadians. Roman told the two best friends to keep everyone laughing. Jericho was seriously offended. Roman felt Kevin was a huge joke as Universal Champion. Kevin stumbled over his words and everyone made fun of it. Kevin considered Roman’s claim of being “The Guy” a joke. Roman knew Kevin needed help for everyone, which is why he kept Jericho around. Kevin said he didn’t NEED Jericho. Chris looked oddly at his buddy. Roman said if not for Jericho, Kevin would have lost the title, numerous times, in the past. Chris whipped out The LIst and went to put Roman on it. Kevin stopped it and screamed at Roman to stop it. Kevin threatened to Powerbomb Roman on the apron. Roman wanted “Fight Owens Fight” and he wanted it tonight…in Charlotte! Roman said if he defeated Kevin, he gets a shot at the U-title at RoadBlock. Kevin quickly agreed to the fight. Roman promised to kick Kevin’s *ss by the end of the night.

Jericho and Owens were bickering, backstage. Chris was offended that Kevin told him to shut up and claimed he didn’t need him. Kevin felt Chris made Kevin looked weak. Chris and Kevin had a serious break up. Jeez.

Mick Foley strolled in and confirmed the match. Jericho stopped Foley, cold, and said he was leaving.

R-Truth (w/Goldust) vs Braun Strowman

The Finish:

This was supposed to be a rematch agaisnt Sami Zayn but Foley refused it. Truth tried for some quick offense. It had no effect. Bullet Train Corner Splash led to the Bulldog Bounce.

Your Winner: Braun Strowman
Raw Ranking: .5 out of a possible 5.0

Braun then attacked Goldust. He applied a Bear Hug. Sami Zayn entered teh ring and jumped the big man. Sami used his speed to keep Braun off his game. Braun used his power to destroy the much smaller man.

Mick Foley walked from the back to stop this. Commercial break.

After the break, Mick was interviewed (in the ring). Sami didn’t need Foley to keep stopping things. Mick didn’t want to see a massacre happen. Foley needed to save Sami from himself. Sami didn’t need to be saved from himself but from the General Manager. Sami accused Foley of walking away from who he truly is. Foley admitted he saved Sami from being completely destroyed. Sami was insulted at his Former Hero. Sami stated that Foley was in his way. He called Mick a hypocrit. Sami then stormed to the back.

Dana talked with Charlotte, in the back. Se was upset that Dana interrupted her preparation. Charlotte was ready to cement her legacy as the greatest female wrestler, ever. She was certain that she would end her feud with Sasha and be the only Legend to escape Charlotte, NC. She dismissed Dana to get the celebration ready.

Cedric Alexander vs Tony Nese

Cedric is from Charlotte, so he was obviously the crowd favorite.

The Finish:

Both men jockeyed for position. Nese locked in a Body Scissors. Nese switched to a Side Headlock. Cedric flipped free and kicked Nese in the face. Nese reversed a Whip but took a Backspring Tornado Kick to the face. Step Up Enziguri by Cedric. Cedric took out Drew Gulak, who had been at ringside. Nese hit a Pump Handle Buster to end this one.

Your Winner: Tony Nese
Raw Ranking: 3.0

Enzo and Cass did a Cyber Monday promo thing.

Chris Jericho was asked if this break up was serious. He said it was very serious. Chris questioned if Kevin Owens was really his friend or not. He told the girl interviewing him to get he Hell out. Chris then made the long walk out to the parking lot. Seth Rollins came up and attacked Jericho, at his car. Seth just beat the stuffing out of that Canadian turkey. Jericho just missed being hit with a section of metal railing. Seth slammed Jericho into multiple cars. Jericho blocked the Pedigree but Seth just pulled Chris on top of a car. Pedigree!

Sash Banks strolled out to the ring. She was ready to start her third reign as Women’s champion. Charlotte then entered the arena. Dana was at Sasha’s side.
