WWE Raw Winners and Match Card
Bobby Lashley defeated. Seth Rollins
Fans couldn’t get enough of Seth Rollins’ music, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they were on Rollins’ side. The advertising team insisted the audience was divided, but there were loud chants of “let’s go Bobby” the entire time.
Seth Rollins tried to stomp, but Bobby Lashley’s neck proved too strong and he didn’t hear a sound. This was a great place that stood out from the crowd.
Anyone who has been paying any kind of attention to Seth Rollins’s feud against Matt Riddle can tell you that Riddle will be involved and cost Seth Rollins the United States Championship. This is exactly what happened.
CTRL DAMAGE CHAMPIONSHIP Celebrate
A few days after Shotzi was able to turn a kid’s face without a tank, Damage CTRL rolled into the SAP Arena in a golf cart emblazoned with her logo and shapes.
Poor Dakota Kai had to deal with the “what” chants but didn’t seem to emanate from it at all.
It used CTRL damage on long clips that could have hit the point in half the time. This week’s clip ended with a challenge from Alexa goo Bayley.
Kevin Owens def. Austin’s theory
This was the second match in a row with a distraction. Gladiators enjoy fly attention.
By the time this match went on, WWE was competing head-to-head with two Monday Night Football matches.
He defeated Brawlin’ Brutes. Street profits
Not only did the Street Profits wear San Francisco Giants-style baseball jerseys, Montez Ford shouted Kanye West’s “Late Recording” album with the phrase “Here’s another song, Barry Bonds.”
During the attack, Montez Ford gleefully mocked Ridge Holland by skating to his knees and pretending to sell his back.
This match took a lot of time and it was good to see a new match with new locations between the two teams.
Doomsday defeated. Riddle and Mysterio
Rhea Ripley continues to whisper in Dominic Mysterio’s ear, and Corey Graves is everything for this budding relationship. He even wants them to get married.
Doomsday received tremendous heat, specifically Dominic Mysterio, who milked him for all the worst.
Ripley made her best impression on Chyna by intermittently doing a few points with Matt Riddle on the outside of the ring.
Rey Mysterio refused to hit Dominic with a steel chair, and Dominic knew Rey wouldn’t be able to do that. One of these days, they must have a place where conflicting Rey Mysterio pulls the trigger in hitting his son with the chair.
Backstage, Seth Rollins and Matt Riddle were arguing backstage. Riddell challenged Rollins to a “pit fight” match at Strict Rules.
MizTV with Dexter Loomis
Dexter Loomis’ entry this week included the man who used a knife to cut his way from under the ring. I still don’t understand why he’s the lovable face in this feud, but at least it was a fun visual.
The Miz apparently admitted to the assault by punching him in the face on his daughter’s third birthday, thinking it was Dexter Lumis.
Tommaso Ciampa ran off Dexter Loomis before saving The Miz from being dragged under the ring, then fighting Loomis with a microphone.
Bailey defeated. Alexa Bliss
One of the most underrated in this main event was Asuka’s agreement to babysit Lilly.
“Idiot” Bailey yelled before handing the rose plant.
WWE continues to build Bayley and Damage CTRL, first with the women’s tag team titles, then with Bayley defeating Raquel Rodriguez on a SmackDown, and now with Bayley defeating Alexa Bliss and taking out Bianca Belair. I’d be surprised if you didn’t beat Bianca Belair in Strict Rules for the Raw Women’s Championship.
