WWE Monday Night Raw July 10, 2018 Results and Review The Roman Show

Alexa Bliss with The Kendo Stick - SRC WWE dot com 
We started the night with a package featuring Roman and Bobby Lashley and their feud. Then we got to see them in the back. Roman said he was going to his Ring to call out Lashley, and then we saw the two banter, but mainly it was Bobby saying he was ready to take on Reigns. That of course led to the arena opening as we are in Boston, MA that started with Roman Reigns coming out to the arena.

WWE Monday Night Raw July 10, 2018 Results and Review

Roman Reigns came out and started to call out Bobby Lashley, which was stupid. It's the Roman show, isn't it? Ugh.

Roman calls out Lashley, and then the whole locker room comes out to seperate Roman and Lashley and it's insane. Roman did show some great things, he jumped over the top rope and into a crowd of guys, which was a lot like The Undertaker's jump at WWF Ground Zero from 1997. I'm not sure who is going to go over, but something tells me that Roman Reigns is going to get a good win with a spear, right? The brawling continued here, and the crowd was into it, and you know what? Why not? Sure they are going to fight, because they think that they are better than one another. Got it.

Nia Jax and Natalya defeated Alexa Bliss and Mickie James

The match was basically a lot of Nia Jax getting the most of the women, and Natalya limited in the ring. Alexa and Mickie did a few things well here, but after Nia would win, Alexa jumped her with a kendo stick. The Kendo stick beat down was the best part of the match, and I loved that. Great stuff overall. Other than that, the match was a bit boring to me. Mickie James is always good, but the rest, meh.

Mojo Rawley defeated No Way Jose

This was a hard hitting match, and it was kind of back and forth. Now Way Jose tried his best, but Rawley was not to be thwarted, and he eventually hit the Alabama Slam, and boom, it was all done within a short span. Not a bad match at all, mind you.

Sasha and Bayley are still in counseling, and it sucked.

Seth Rollins came out to talk, and I was not thrilled, I didn't care. Dolph came out, and so did Drew McIntyre, and they started to talk trash. This went back and forth and a match was set up. I didn't care for this, too much talking if you ask me.

Bo Dallas defeated Matt Hardy

Another match in which the B team was able to take on the veterans and win. This was a match that had Matt Hardy winning most of it, and then out of the blue, Dallas would get the win. This wasn't terrible, but it's a bit predictable and I'm tired of it, so meh. That's all I can say about this, meh. Dallas wins, the other guys beat them up and that was that.

Ember Moon defeated Liv Morgan

Ember Moon wins again, and this time she was able to throw down a lot of offense, and eventually did a move that was nothing short of impressive. She did a pinning combination that had her spiked, then flipped over and in a bridge. You have to see it to believe it, it was so good. Liv Morgan nearly broke a nose, which was rough, but the match was good.

Corbin and Elias were tagging together, and Elias played a lullabye with Corbin. Wow. This was a stinker.

Corbin and Elias defeated Finn Balor and Bobby Roode

A good back and forth match, with some good overall fighting. I liked the fighting, and it was definitely better than I thought it would be. Corbin would end up getting the win with Elias on his side, and it was what you would expect. Fast pacing, movement, and so much more, although midway through the match there was an ad for the ppv with Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley at the helm.

Drew McIntyre defeated Seth Rollins

Well, this was a good closing match, with lots of action and great timing from the two veterans of the ring. Dolph Ziggler was on the outside and tried interfering, and helped get his team member a great shot in the process, but honestly, this match needed a bit more time if you ask me. It had some good moments, and while there was some high spots, it was your standard Rollins match, with McIntyre showing he's ready for the big time. I liked it. Rollins would get a loss here and McIntyre would hit his finisher to close out raw, and make it a night.

At the end of the day, this wasn't a terrible show at all. I didn't hate it, but I found that there was a lot left to be desired in terms of wrestling. As for that ending, and the rest of the show, it is what it is, it's the Roman hour of sorts, but there's a lot to mix in this time around. I had fun, and maybe that's the best thing.
