|The Best Part of Raw Was The Drifter Knocking Out Finn Balor With A Guitar|
WWE Monday Night Raw July 17, 2017 Results and Review
Intercontinental Champion The Miz and The Miztourage confronted Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins
Dean Ambrose started the show and Seth Rollins came out. At one point Rollins asked Ambrose to hit him in the back with a chair, asking for the former Shield Member to forgive him for turning his back on the team. That’s when The Miz and his cronies showed up and the trio beat the holy crap out of Rollins and Ambrose. That would prompt for a handicap match for next week. But this week, The Miz and his buddies got the beat down on the two Shield guys.
I’m so tired of Ambrose and Rollins.
Bayley def. Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss
A short match, that was not revoluiontary at all. Bliss loses here, gets pinned cleaned thanks to a distraction outside. Sasha Banks ran down and beat up Nia Jax, distracting Bliss and getting Bayley the win. Banks and Bayley will wrestle next week to see who is the number one contender against Bliss for Summerslam. Doesn’t Banks get a rematch? I don’t know, not a bad match, but it was very short. Where are the other women on the roster? So much for that revolution.
Gentleman Jack Gallagher and Mustafa Ali def. The Brian Kendrick and Drew Gulak
This wasn’t on HULU.
Big Cass confronted Enzo Amore
Not On HULU.
Finn Bálor def. Elias Samson via Disqualification
I like Samson, and I like the drifter gimmick. Balor looked to be getting this one easily, but not so fast. Samson came roaring back with some great offense, and when he got frustrated, he hit Balor with a guitar shot that busted him wide open. Samsons guitar shot was 100 times harder than anything you’ve seen from Jeff Jarrett, and akin to the shot that The Honky Tonk Man hit Jake Roberts with in the past. It was hard, it cut Finn wide open, and it really made this point special.
Ariya Daivari def. Akira Tozawa via Match Stoppage
Not on HULU.
Raw General Manager Kurt Angle revealed his personal announcement
The worst segment ever. Kurt Angle is the father of one of American Alpha. I don’t care, you don’t care, this is absolutely the worst.
The Revival def. The Hardy Boyz
Not a bad match, The Hardy Boyz must become broken, they just have to. That Broken gimmick is one of the best things in the past decade, and this should send them down the spiral that will no doubt get them to start DELETING people. DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!
Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe ended in a No Contest
A strong match that I loved, until the ending. Brown Shoeman showed up and interfered, and while he got into the fray with Joe and Reigns, there was no real winner, which was dumb. I wish there was a definitive winner in this feud. Not only that, how did Brown Shoeman heal up so fast? I want whatever medical help he has, because it’s better than mine.
Final Raw Thoughts
Raw wasn’t a terrible show, but it was far from good. There was probably 2 good things that happened, and none of it featured a title. I don’t know why Raw is booked so loosely with so little wrestling, but that’s what we’re getting this year. Perhaps Smackdown will be more fun? I don’t know, I may not even watch it, who knows. As for Raw, I’m sure the live crowd had fun, but I didn’t have fun watching this. I immediately had to take a nap.
