According to a June 23 report from the Latin Post, General Manager of SmackDown Vickie Guerrero was punished by WWE head honcho Stephanie McMahon for letting Roman Reigns tamper with The Authority’s coffees during last week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw. Guerrero, 46, was given the choice of resigning from the WWE, or battling McMahon inside the cage.
McMahon forced Guerrero to beg for her job, before challenging her to a fight. Guerrero accepted the fight, much to the delight of the fans on hand. Last week on “Raw,” Guerrero was slated to bring coffee to McMahon and Triple H. She managed to do so, but Reigns tampered with their coffees when she wasn’t looking. Even though Reigns was the one who tampered with the coffee, the blame was placed squarely on Guerrero’s shoulders.
Guerrero and McMahon had both competed before in WWE Divas division bouts, so it was nothing new. However, the fans on hand at the Verizon Center were shocked at the announcement. Guerrero vs. McMahon wasn’t initially projected for the WWE Monday Night Raw card in Washington, D.C.
Elsewhere on WWE Monday Night Raw, The Usos took on the tag-team of Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. After just a few minutes of action, Harper and Rowan reigned supreme. However, Jey Uso challenged Rowan to a singles match after The Usos lost. Uso flew off the top rope and pinned Rowan for the singles win.
Even after Jey Uso pinned Rowan, the Wyatt Family members beat down the Usos and picked up the tag-team championship belts. The WWE commentators continued to build the tag-team match set for Money in the Bank, which once again features The Usos vs Rowan and Harper. After Rowan and Harper won, Bray Wyatt appeared on the big screen and provided some words of wisdom.
The June 23 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, which was filmed at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., was the 1,100th Monday Night Raw in show history. It absolutely turned out to be a great night of action, featuring over a dozen WWE superstars.
This week’s episode was the go-home show for this weekend’s Money in the Bank special event. Money in the Bank features two ladder matches, so this week’s episode of WWE Monday Night Raw helped tie up some loose storylines heading into the event. In other matters, WWE Universe found out who joins Seth Rollins in the Money in the Bank championship contract ladder match this weekend.
