WWE Monday Night Raw August 7, 2017 Results and Review The Padded Chair of Doom

Padded Chair of Doom - SRC WWE.COM
This week I sat through 5 hours of wrestling. Ok, not 5 hours, only the 90 minute version of Raw on Hulu and then Smackdown live on Hulu. I watched them back to back, so that has to be something good, right? Whatever the case is, Raw was not exactly fun to watch, but Smackdown had a few notes. This time around on Raw, there were some good spots, and classic matches, but the HULU version condensed a lot of the things that you would normally expect. With that in mind, consider the following review of RAW from the Air Canada Centre, in Toronto, Canada.

WWE Monday Night Raw August 7, 2017 Results and Review

Brock Lesnar laid the Miz and his crew to waste.

The opening segment had Lesnar beating down the Miz and his crew with ease. This was fun, but what’s the big deal? Lesnar obliterates the Intercontinental Champion? Not only that, did you see the Miz’s wild swing against Lesnar? It was funny.

Sheamus defeated Seth Rollins

Sheamus rolled up Rollins, and then beat him down, forcing Dean Ambrose to show up. I think. I think that’s the story that was told, or maybe not. I’m having a hard time remembering this, because it was absolutely boring.

Sasha Banks defeated Emma and Alicia Fox

The women’s revolution eh? Well, if a fast moving match with minimal offense and probably 5 minutes of time is a revolution, then sure, we have a revolution. This was telegraphed a mile away. Sasha Banks wins, and the rest were boring. Emma is still getting buried.

Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson defeated Enzo Amore and Big Show

Well, this match sucked. Enzo is not liked backstage, according to a lot of sources, but you wouldn’t know since this match had the crowd going nuts for him. Show and Enzo lose, but then Show gets the last laugh with a right hand. They are going to have Cass versus Big Show with Enzo in a cage above the ring, which is just bad. Either way, this match sucked, and the Club Sandwich boys aren’t doing well.

Bray Wyatt Attacked Finn Balor

This wasn’t shown on HULU.

Dean Ambrose defeated Cesaro

Another roll up, but this time Seth Rollins ran down. Rollins ran down and saved Ambrose, but they didn’t shake hands or fist bump. This match was boring, and Cesaro was rolled up. Man, so many roll ups, I’m tired.

Akira Tozawa defeated Ariya Daivari

This wasn’t shown on HULU.

Nia Jax defeated Mickie James and Dana Brooke

Wow, Dana Brooke is hot to me. I’m sorry. Mickie James too. These are two amazing women, and they are very strong and athletic. Then there’s Nia Jax, wow, some improvement, but not exactly an in ring scholar just yet. I liked this match, and loved the ending, with Nia Jax going strong and moving forward to facing off against Sasha Banks.

Braun Strowman defeated Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing Match

This was great. This was a great match with Roman and Braun putting on a show. There were a lot of great moments, but the scene of the night was Reigns getting hit in the face with an office chair. Strowman threw a chair at him and Roman went down, people went nuts, and I couldn’t help but think that the chair was super padded. Roman went down like a sack of potatoes, and it was funny to see. Samoa Joe came out of the audience, NO MUSIC mind you, and choked out Reigns.

Bayley gets Booed!

Bayley’s character has been assassinated. Ever since she wussed out at Extreme Rules in her home town, and Alexa Bliss caned the living crap out of her, she’s been going downhill. The crowd was booing, and Bayley really was awful on the mic. She even said, “why are they booing”, breaking character, and making me hate WWE for putting her out there. This was absolutely bad.

Overall, Monday Night Raw had a lot of bad things to it. But there were a few good moments with wrestling, including Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns. I don’t think Reigns sucks. This was an ok show, and worth HULU, but not 3 hours of your time.

Oh, and one more thing. What’s up with the illogical saves? Ambrose and Rollins save each other, but before they do so, their music plays. That’s asinine! Don’t do that! Instead, they should just run down and save their friend, no music, no pomp and circumstance. But no, logic is thrown out the window. Where was Elias, by the way? Oh well. Raw was ok at best.
