MVP’s VIP Lounge with Dolph Ziggler
Being both were on the climbing ladders of success at the start of the decade, Dolph Ziggler and MVP really should be having a conversation about how 2010 should have been their year. During the build-up of this feud, Dolph Ziggler has been able to successfully avoid Drew McIntyre’s attacks as only a veteran heel can.
Andrade and Angel Garza def. The Viking Raiders—Elimination Grudge Match
Andrade and Angel Garza have come to be known as a rather Dysfunctional team while the Vikings are like birds of a feather but seeing them on the same page while taking a victory was a glorious sight for all especially Samoa Joe.
Ruby Riott and Bianca Belair def. The IIconics
Through making her Debut in the main event, Bianca had to be reintroduced owing to the lack of push. This win along with the fact that Liv Morgan did not come to the rescue of Ruby Riott hints at what WWE could be conspiring for the future or maybe Morgan simply wasn’t available.
Shayna Baszler Crashes R-Truth vs. Akira Tozawa
Baszler used this match to cut the Promo off her presence in the WWE while also shooting a warning which just hints at perhaps WWE creative team is up to something. About the Match, Truth just chose to run away and avoid Tozawa and his Ninjas.
Seth Rollins Appears Live; Kevin Owens Interrupts
Rollins went on a monologue on RAW about what an ‘Eye for an Eye’ meant and he realized that Mysterio meant it literally before trying to figure out why everyone hates him and his vision for RAW. He said that Mysterio forced his hand to completely blind him at Extreme Rules before Kevin Owens came out. Owens said that even though he didn’t see it coming that a nice guy like Rey could be so mad.
Aleister Black def. Murphy via Disqualification
This match again highlighted the Lack of Creativity in terms of scripting, Aleister Black definitely has what it takes to make a name for himself in the WWE but for the longest time now, it looks like his career is not his own story but rather a tale of beholding Mysterio’s Honor.
Murphy dominated the match early on, but black his a huge kick and put him down before delivering a sweep kick when Murphy recovered. Black hit the running knee strike for a near fall but Murphy countered the Black Mass. Murphy took the Black Mass on the middle rope but Seth broke the pin. Though the match ended in a Disqualification, in the end, Rey Mysterio & Dominick came out and surrounded Rollins with the help of Owens.
Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins
Match went on while Mysterio and Black were present on the ringside. Rollins begged for mercy but Owens went at him hitting a huge cannonball off a distraction from Black.
Rollins was dominating the match by sending Owens into the buckles. KO was hit with a blockbuster but Black, Dominick, and then Mysterio distracted Rollins, allowing KO to hit the Stunner for the win on RAW. After the match, The 619 man claimed that the Architect will leave Extreme rules with just one eye.
Big show Vs Orton on the Cards
Big was seen being praised by Ric Flair in an attempt to discourage him from fighting the RKO man. Show, however, saw past the mind games and refused to back off. Randy Orton was backstage on RAW and threatened Big Show. He even called Ric Flair ‘family’ before warning him not to betray the Viper.
The creators seem to have decided to reintroduce the “Legend Killer” persona of Randy Orton which Kickstarter with the putting down of R-Truth.
Randy Orton def. R-Truth
Ric Flair came out before the match to tell R-Truth that he wasn’t going to get punted tonight, he’ll only get the RKO. As the bell rang, Truth said he had to talk to Ric Flair but when Randy went for the RKO from behind, he tried to retaliate with a kick. Randy dodged the offence and hit the RKO to take out the 24/7 champ on RAW.
After the match, Ric Flair was trying to get Randy to stand down but Orton was going for the Punt Kick. The Big Show showed up to stop Randy from taking out one more veteran Superstar. Randy challenged Show to an unsanctioned match for next Monday on RAW and Big Show agreed before chasing Randy away.
Bobby Lashley vs. Ricochet
Ricochet started off strong but none can really stand up to the almighty dominator. Lashley hit the Dominator in the ring for a near fall before Ricochet hit the standing shooting star for a near fall of his own.
Ricochet hit the Superkick but was caught in the Full Nelson Lock, ending the match before a brawl broke out as Cedric came in to help his friend. Lashley took Cedric out as well with the Full Nelson Lock before celebrating with MVP on RAW.
Sasha Banks & Bayley (c) vs. Kabuki Warriors – Women’s Tag Titles match
The Kabuki Warriors hit double hip attacks before Asuka kicked Banks and followed up with a hip attack in the ring before Bayley got the tag and they sent Kairi into the plexiglass. Sane was in trouble when we returned to RAW and managed to make the tag before Asuka unloaded on Bayley and Banks.
Asuka finished off Bayley at ringside but Sane was caught in the Banks Statement before she tapped out to the champ.
