WWE Raw Winners and Match Card
Bobby Lashley won. Seth Rollin
Fans couldn’t get enough of Seth Rollins’ theme music, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they were on Rollins’ side. The announcement team insisted the crowd was divided, but there were loud “let’s go Bobby” chants everywhere.
Seth Rollins tried to stomp, but Bobby Lashley’s neck proved too strong and he didn’t buzz. It was a great place that got the crowd excited.
Anyone who paid any attention to the Seth Rollins vs. Matt Riddle feud could have told you that Riddle was going to get involved and cost Seth Rollins the United States Championship. This is exactly what happened.
Damage CTRL Championship Celebration
Just days after Shotzi managed to go babyface without a tank, Damage CTRL entered the SAP Arena in a golf cart adorned with their logo and likenesses.
Poor Dakota Kai had to deal with chants of “what” but didn’t seem fazed by them at all.
Too bad CTRL is used to long segments that could have gotten to the point in half the time. This week’s segment ended with an Alexa goo Bayley challenge.
Kevin Owens beats. Austin theory
It was the second game in a row with a distraction ending. Wrestlers have the attention span of a fly.
As this match continued, WWE was facing not one, but two Monday Night Football matches.
The Brawlin’ Brutes won. The benefits of the street
Not only did the Street Profits wear baseball jerseys similar to the San Francisco Giants, but Montez Ford shouted out Kanye West’s “Late Registration” album with the phrase “here’s another hit, Barry Bonds.”
On offense, Montez Ford hilariously mocked Ridge Holland by skating on his knees and pretending to sell his back.
This game took a long time and it was good to see a new game with new places between the teams.
Judgment Day def. Riddle and mystery
Rhea Ripley continues to whisper in Dominik Mysterio’s ear, and Corey Graves is totally on board with this budding relationship. He even wants them to get married.
Judgment Day received immense heat, namely Dominik Mysterio, who treated him for all he was worse.
Ripley did her best Chyna impression by intermittently doing spots with Matt Riddle outside the ring.
Rey Mysterio refused to hit Dominik with a steel chair, and Dominik knew Rey wouldn’t be able to do it. One of these days they must have a place where a conflicted Rey Mysterio pulls the trigger hitting his son with the chair.
Backstage, Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle were brawling backstage. Riddle challenged Rollins to a “fight pit” match at Extreme Rules.
MizTV with Dexter Lumis
Dexter Lumis’ entry this week included the man using a knife to force his way under the ring. I still don’t understand why he’s the babyface of this feud, but at least it was a fun visual.
The Miz appeared to admit to being assaulted by punching a Minion in the face at his daughter’s third birthday party, thinking it was Dexter Lumis.
Tommaso Ciampa rushed from Dexter Lumis before stopping The Miz from getting dragged under the ring and then battling Lumis with a microphone.
Bayley won. Alexa Bliss
An underrated highlight of this main event was that Asuka agreed to keep Lilly.
Bayley yelled “silly” just before delivering the Roseplant.
WWE continues to build Bayley and Damage CTRL, first with the Women’s Tag Team Titles, then with Bayley defeating Raquel Rodriguez on SmackDown, and now with Bayley defeating Alexa Bliss and featuring Bianca Belair. I’d be surprised if she didn’t beat Bianca Belair at Extreme Rules for the Raw Women’s Championship.
