|Enzo Gets A Beating - SRC WWE DOT COM|
The show was live from Ontario, California, just a stones throw away from what I used to live, and it was heated. The venue isn’t that big, so there were probably no empty seats. The show kicked off nicely, and put things into high gear, at least for the HULU version, which is what I’m going to be discussing here.
WWE Monday Night Raw September 25, 2017 Results and Review
Roman Reigns and The Miz started off the show with The Miz getting the better of Roman on the mic, and the crowd firmly behind Miz and his cronies. The MIz at one point decided to just leave after berating Roman, but Kurt Angle came out and set up a couple of matches that features the trio, and that’s the crux of the show.
Matt Hardy and Jason Jordan defeated The MIztourage
The Miztourage are nothing but jobbers. I guess there are worse ways to make a living, but they lost handedly by Matt Hardy and Jason Jordan. This was a fast paced match, and it got the crowd going wild, which is always a great thing. I had a little fun watching this, and you probably enjoyed this one too. It’s a good match, although I’m tired of seeing the Miztourage getting pummeled each week. At least the Flock and the Nest had wins when they were with Raven. These guys aren’t even getting a second look.
Elias defeated Apollo Crews

Braun Strowman attacked Curt Hawkins
This was just awful. This was absolutely just bad. Hawkins gets beat up, and still buried. I guess there’s worse ways to make a living, right?
Braun Strowman defeated Dean Ambrose
This match was what you’d expect, Strowman plowed through Ambrose. Ambrose had a little offense, but not nearly as much as you’d expect, and Strowman wins again. Next week he will face off against Seth Rollins and win again. However, I don’t find him to be a formidable opponent for anyone because Lesnar beat him clean in the middle of the ring at the PPV.
Mickie James came out to fight Alexa Bliss
Mickie James didn’t get much of a crowd reaction when she confronted Alexa Bliss. I guess this is the next feud? Ok. James is on her way out, I can sense it. Bliss is great here, and I like her.
Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus
Sheamus had most of the offense in this match, and it wasn’t that bad. Rollins is boring to me, and very predictable, as is Ambrose. Sheamus got cocky at one point and lost when Rollins was able to take advantage of several mistakes that Sheamus had. Not a terrible match, but far from the best.
Roman Reigns defeated The Miz
This was not much of a match, Roman Reigns beat down MIz and won relatively well. Even with the Miztourage helping out, Reigns wasn’t going down, and the Miz lost clean. After the match the trio beat the holy crap out of Reigns with a chair, and the other guys from the shield did not show up. So screw them. I still hate Reigns.

The Cruiserweight Division gave Enzo Amore a Beat Down
Enzo Amore came out and cut a scathing promo, but the 205 Live crew came out and confronted him. Neville talked a great deal then beat the tar out of Amore, and then the rest of the crew came down and beat him up. Then Braun Strowman came out and beat him up too. Either way, Amore is getting beat down and taking a lot of heat. I’ll definitely be tuning in to 205 Live to see how this works itself out. However, the idea of an outcast as champion, and the whole crew beating him up is not my favorite of stories. I want him to overcome.
So there you have it, Raw was ok at best. I didn’t really see any furtherment of story lines, and according to the Tuna Metlzer, the WWE doesn’t care about the stories because they are making money hand over fist regardless of what they do. That is showing with this lack luster show that was very long, even on HULU. Not a great night of wrestling, if you can call it that anymore.
