WWE Raw is ongoing and as I’m typing this, we’ve just seen the first half hour of the show. The opening segment saw Seth Rollins apologize to a disbelieving Kevin Owens, AOP arrive to challenge both of them to a match that ended up not happening, and finally leaving Owens alone in the ring where he put out an open challenge to anyone in the locker room.
After the events of last night’s Starrcade, it ended up being Bobby Lashley – with Lana in tow as always – accepting the challenge, looking to get him back for forcing him into an actual match when he clearly wanted to have the night off.
This match ended in disqualification after Akam and Rezar attacked Kevin Owens in the ring.
They proceeded to pull him out onto the floor, pummel him, and drag him backstage. As of now it seems that Kevin Owens has outright been abducted.
You can see an excerpt of my recap of these proceedings below:
Kevin Owens vs. Bobby Lashley
Lashley and Owens brawl, spills to the outside, Owens with a big frog splash off the apron right before the commercial break. We come back just in time to see Owens hitting a big cannonball on Lashley in the corner! Nearfall. Second rope moonsault missed, Lashley with a clothesline. Lashley with crossface blows. Lashley with a huge shoulder thrust in the corner. Hits the ropes – Owens with a superkick! Wants a Stunner – Lashley shoves him away, spinning neckbreaker for a nearfall. Lashley casually brings back the Dominator for a nearfall. Lashley wants the Full Nelson and I already forgot that was his new finish. Owens fights out with back elbows, Pop-Up Powerbomb! Owens can’t pin though, too drained. Now AOP making their way out, entering the ring. Owens starts to brawl with them but the numbers immediately catch up to him.
Winner: Kevin Owens (by DQ)
They gang pummel him, stomping and raining down elbows. Owens dragged out to the floor! Lashley leaves the ring, just takes Lana to safety. “Rusev Day” chant but Owens is all by his lonesome as AOP take the beating to the ramp. They’re dragging him up to the stage, and to backstage! Welp, he’s been abducted.
