Roman Reigns Announcement For Summerslam
Roman Reigns came out to tell the crowd in Indiana that he was going to be the next contender for the Universal Championship. That is either going to set up a Samoa Joe match against Roman Reigns or it’s going to set up a Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns grudge match. Either way, Roman did ok on the mic here, but he was interrupted by Samoa Joe. Reigns called him a dude named Joe, and that sparked some words, before the two started brawling. Joe has a point, Reigns has NOT beaten him, and the two would meet later on tonight.
The Drifter Gets Interrupted
The Drifter came out and asked the crowd, who wants to walk with Elias! I do! I love this gimmick, and really hope that eventually he hits someone with a guitar. I love that. Well, not when Jeff Jarrett did it, but when Honky Tonk Man did it, it was awesome. The Drifter got confronted by Finn Balor, but he left. Hang on to that thought.
Finn Balor defeated Bo Dallas
Bo Dallas came out aggressive and was beating the snot out of Finn Balor. If Finn Balor is so dominant, why did Bo Dallas get so much offense against him? Bo was looking like a million bucks against the first Universal Champion ever. Either way, Balor turned things around with his offense stolen from Alex Wright, and eventually won against Dallas. I guess he didn’t BO LIEVE.
Seth Rollins Panders To The Crowd
Seth Rollins came out and was pandering to people about the new WWE 2K18 game. Then Bray Wyatt came out and said something, and that will most likely set up a match between the two? I guess that’s that. Wyatt to lose again, I’m sure.
Finn Balor Beat Down by Elias
Backstage, Finn Balor was getting interviewed when Elias “The Drifter” Samson hit him from behind and knocked him out. This was awesome, and will most likely setup a good match between the two. Elias is doing well with this gimmick, and I hope the WWE doesn’t screw it up, but of course, they will.
Samoa Joe defeated Roman Reigns
This was a really good match for Raw. The crowd was into it, and I was into it. Samoa Joe was putting some good work in against Roman Reigns, and Reigns was not backing down. He was hitting Joe with some strong offense, but Joe was outsmarting him at times. Joe would eventually turn things around as Braun Strowman showed up on the screen with an ambulance. Joe got his finisher sleeper on, the Clutch, if you will, and Reigns passed out. That’s correct folks, SAMOA JOE defeats Roman Reigns in the middle of the ring, nearly clean. Post match, Shoeman (not a typo), beat up Reigns and challenged him to an ambulance match.
The Miz Recruits Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel
The Miz went backstage and told the two jobbers that he can make both of them stars. All they had to do was join him. Keep that in mind.
Maryse On MIZ TV
Miz TV had a guest, it was Maryse, and despite her good looks, she’s looking a bit older these days. There were two dancing bears there, and Miz was promising to give a gift. It was the grandfather clock that Miz repaired since he beat it down last week. Maryse was thrilled, but out came Dean Ambrose. He beat up Miz, they broke the clock, Maryse spilled her drink, ran off, and then the bears. The bears beat down Dean Ambrose and pulled their heads off to reveal it was Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel! I kid you not. They finally have something to do on Raw.
Nia Jax defeated Sasha Banks via DQ
This match didn’t get far. Alexa Bliss and Emma got into it on commentary, Bliss ran into the ring to get help from Nia, and that led to brawling from all the women, in what was an embarrassment of a segment. Wait, I forgot, Bayley came out looking a bit tired and flabby and beat everyone up. Word on the street is that she’s going to start to have a crush on Graves. Meh.
Kurt Angle Revealed Enzo and Cass Attack Villain
The show ended without wrestling. I kid you not, the show ended with NO WRESTLING in the ring. Instead, Graves, Angle, Cass, The Revival, Big Show, and Enzo all were in the ring trying to get to the bottom of the attacks. As it turned out, Cass attacked Enzo and that was that. Enzo started crying, Cass gave a great speech, and that was that. Cass attacked Enzo. Why would the WWE split a great team like this up? Why would they make the heels all win all the time? Why did the show end without wrestling? I don’t know. That was the end, and that was that.
