WWE Monday Night Raw June 25, 2018 Results and Review
The show started with Kurt Angle and Baron Corbin, then they were interrupted by Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley. Kurt Angle couldn’t get a word out without getting interrupted, and of course, this is how Raw always shows up. Angle says that there will not be a multi-man match at Extreme Rules because of Brock Lesnar’s contract issues. I hate that dude. The two dudes were interrupted by The Revival. The Revival showed up and well, they were destined to lose.
The Revival defeated Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns
The Revival was getting a beat down throughout the match, but they came together to get a few shots in against the makeshift duo. There was a bit of strife amidst the two, and what seemed like an easy win for the two powerhouses, turned bad when The Revival was able to get a pin, with a handful of tights. Not a bad match at all. The two were able to work together until the end, and that was that.
Curtis Axel defeated Woken Matt Hardy
I have no idea what this was all about. Curtis Axel was able to beat Hardy, in a fast match. Like so fast, that it wasn’t much of a match at all. Hardy slipped or something, Axel fell on him and it was over.
The Authors of Pain defeated Jobbers
A job match! That’s it. The Authors of Pain win.
Alexa Bliss and Mickie James came out and started talking as per usual. Nothing crazy I guess. It was ok. Bliss then got interrupted by Natalya, and that led to the two women getting a singles match.
Natalya defeated Alexa Bliss
This was a fast paced match, with a few botches. Natalya was able to get the win after some back and forth action, mainly because Nia Jax helped her cheat. After Bliss was tripped by Jax, Natalya slapped on the sharpshooter and made Bliss tap.
The Riott Squad interrupted a photo shoot of Jinder Mahal and broke a camera. That was kind of funny, I liked it. They are so punk, aren’t they? Note the sarcasm.
The Riott Squad defeated Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Ember Moon
This was your standard six man tag, and it was somewhat short. There was a lot of action early on, and then a distraction roll up and that was that. The women cleared the ring, with the exception of Bayley and Sasha. Bayley lost it, and started to beat the hell out of Sasha Banks. She even said that Sasha wasn’t SHIT! I loved it. It’s about time! The crowd went nuts for this, and I did too, Bayley needs a mean streak.
Kevin Owens and Braun Strowman defeated Finn Balor and Baron Corbin by Countout
Strowman and Owens made for a good team, and beat up the competition for the most part. Balor and Corbin couldn’t get along after some time, and end up losing via countout when they were outside fighting one another.
After the match, Kevin Owens wanted to befriend Strowman, so he ran and that was that, for a moment. So Kevin Owens runs outside and tries to leave, but he finds out that his car was tipped over by Strowman. Yep.
Mojo Rawley refused to fight No Way Jose
Yep that’s it.
Seth Rollins defeated Dolph Ziggler by DQ
This was a good 30 minute match, but guess what? Ziggler would end up keeping the title when Drew McIntyre pulled the ref and caused the disqualification. Overall, this was a fun match, and there was a lot of back and forth. This was a great match, and it was definitely going to be something that Rollins could’ve won, if it weren’t for McIntyre coming in. This was a great main event, and would eventually get Roman Reigns running in to help Rollins. Overall, however, the match was great, and despite the DQ finish, it was worthy of the main event of Raw.
I’ve read a lot of negative things about Monday Night Raw. I’m not in that camp. This was a fun show, and had a great main event. There was a lot to offer here, and while there were a few highs and lows, the offering was good. I didn’t like that they didn’t have Elias in there, he should’ve cost Rollins the match, but oh well. It was an OK night of wrestling at best.
