Monday Night Raw August 21, 2017 Results and Review
Braun Strowman interrupted the Brock Lesnar Speech, and that’s about it.
Enzo Amore defeated Big Cass in a Brooklyn Street Fight
Enzo and Cass didn’t get much time, as this wasn’t on Hulu. I saw it on Youtube, and this was interesting. Cass took a nasty dive to the outside and collapsed midway through the match. I’m guessing a torn ACL and MCL. I tore my ACL and collapsed as well in high school, so I can say this was at least a hyper-extension.
Nia Jax defeated Emma
This wasn’t shown on HULU
Elias defeated R. Truth
This wasn’t shown on HULU
The Miz and Samoa Joe confronted John Cena and Roman Reigns
This was a long boring talking segment that was part of the HULU edition, and it just went long.
Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins defeated The Hardy Boyz
A great overall, fast paced match. It was fun to see these guys work, and while it was hard hitting, with great counters and in-ring psychology, pushing both teams in this one. In the end, Rollins and Ambrose won after stopping the Swanton, and boom.
Alexa Bliss confronted Sasha Banks
Banks just talked on the mic, and Alexa showed up. Meh. They didn’t brawl, and Alexa will get a rematch, just not tonight.
Finn Balor defeated Jason Jordan
Jordan wanted a match with Balor, and he got it. Balor ran right through Jordan, even though he was able to get a little offense. It wasn’t much though, it was bad. Balor’s dropkick wasn’t half bad, and Jordan got a beat down, and lost clean, in the middle of the ring. A good, fun match, but Jordan is just not over.
John Cena and Roman Reigns defeated The Miz and Samoa Joe
This was a fun match, and Reigns with Roman is a good pairing, that will lead them to face off against each other. Joe and MIz worked well enough, but it was obvious that Miz was going to eat a pin. He did, even though Cena was knocked out by Reigns on accident. Reigns and Joe fell to the outside, with a killer sequence that showed Reigns knocking out Joe from the Suicide Dive, and man, good stuff. Miz loses, here, even with his Miztourage on the outside trying to help.
There you have it, Monday Night Raw went down the hatch with minimal problems. I didn’t hate it, I didn’t love it, and the HULU version was very condensed. I liked that, but I didn’t think that the show was worth 3 hours of time. Overall, not a bad night of wrestling, some fun spots, and good things. Hopefully this brings about some more wrestling next week in Memphis. Oh, and I did forget to type the 205 Live match, but I didn't care, and you didn't either.
