WWE Monday Night Raw 5/9/2016 Results and Review
The Highlight Reel started and was interrupted by Big Cass, setting up a match for the main event between Chris Jericho and Big Cass later in the show. This of course wouldn’t happen, but let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this evening’s Raw. I wish it was war.
Paige Defeated Charlotte
I know what this sounds like, but it wasn’t. Charlotte lost because of a distraction, thanks to Ric Flair getting escorted out of the ringside area, and Natalya on commentary and interfering, or rather distracting Charlotte. Paige wins an ok matchup, but nothing that grand. It was ok, ok at best, sorry. I just want to know where Sash Banks is?
Sami Zayn defeated The Miz
Zayn won a competitive match, once again proving that The Miz can really wrestle. This was a great overall brawl, wrestling match, with Zayn doing everything he could to stop Miz. This one ended with Miz going down and letting Sami Zayn get the win so that he could get into the Extreme Rules Intercontinental Championship match. Good battle, a highlight of the show.
Roman Reigns and The Usos defeated The Club via Disqualification
This again made Roman look strong and the Usos looking like chumps. The Club, as they are now called, once again couldn’t put away Reigns. This is a lot like the time the NWO came into the WWE. I’m tired of seeing burials, and that’s what this was. The club getting buried again, desperation cheating with a chair, and Roman and Aj setting up a blood feud. I smell a swerve. Oh and no Finn Balor, idiots.
Kevin Owens defeated Zack Ryder
Ryder continues to get buried, simply put. Sorry Ryder, you’re done.
The Dudley Boyz defeated The New Day
This match was not half bad, and it was another testament to how good the Dudleys are right now. The Vaudevillains came down and beat down the New Day after the match, and well, the Dudleys looked strong, the Vaudevillains looked strong, and all things good in the tag team division for once.
Dean Ambrose beat up Chris Jericho when making his entrance, stole his jacket, caused Big Cass to not have his match with Jericho, and tore up the 15,000 dollar jacket that Jericho wears. This is the epitome of how terrible the old era was, and how dumb this new era is.
Overall Rating: 4 out of 10
This was an abysmal Raw, even on HULU. So bad. I didn’t like it, you shouldn’t like it. Oh and guess what? Roman Reigns was getting super chants? And according to Aaron at NODQ.com, they weren’t piped in. F this noise.

Until next time, this has been a Raw review from HULU. Now, I wish I had the full show, because there was a lot of wrestling that I didn’t see.
