RAAAAAAWWWW! With just about two weeks left until Extreme Rules, expect more build up for that PPV, hopefully some gimmick matches for it, Braun Strowman throwing things (Kevin Owens), and other shenanigans of the WWE type.
Raw starts with a recap of RAW from last week, Mainly Roman vs. Shelton Benjamin.
Speaking of that, Roman Reigns makes his way down to the ring. Roman stands there for a second and then says he never thought he’d say this….I lost to the Revival. LOL Roman. He blames Bobby Lashley, then challenges “Bob” to a fight. Out comes Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. Ziggy makes fun of Roman, talks trash about him. A brawl ensues. Drew beats down Roman while Ziggler pretends to do stuff. Out runs Seth Rollins for the save! Rollins clears the ring and the bad guys walk away and we go to the first commercial break.
Backstage is Seth and Roman, the run into Uncle Kurt backstage. They want a match and Kurt says they can have it next week. Roman protests and Kurt makes it for tonight instead.
Woken Matt Hardy vs. Curtis Axel
Matt and Curtis lock up and Matt immediately goes for a roll up but Axel rolls away. Axel gets a headlock that turns into an anklelock to another head lock. Matt reverses to an arm breaker and a pin attempt. Matt has some stiff shots for Curtis as things progress but Axel hits a shoulder block and gets the upper hand. Matt reverses and tries for a Twist of Fate but Axel rolls away. Commercial time! We’re back and Curtis Axel is making a comeback. Axel gets a few near falls but doesn’t make much of the offensive time. Matt hits a apron Side Effect then takes over and starts smashing Axel into things. Matt hits some elbow drops from the second rope, then goes for a Twist of Fate. Bo distracts him, Curtis takes advantage, and gets the pin….
Winner via Pinfall: Curtis Axel
Curtis Axel dances after the match, Bo runs around like a dummy.

Backstage…again…is Roman and Rollins.
Kevin Owens shows up to the Arena. He seems afraid, probably to the oncoming steel cage match that hasn’t been announced yet.
Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre
Seth and Dolph start things off. They exchange holds on the mat before squaring off again, exchanging more holds lol. Ziggler goes for a roll up that Seth kicks from, then Seth hits a drop kick. McIntyre tags in and locks up with Seth. He overpowers Seth quickly. Rollins rolls away and tags in Roman. He wants some, he’s gunna get some. They stare each other down before locking up in a collar and elbow tie up. Drew powers Reigns into the corner and proceeds to beat on him. Roman gets a quick reversal and does the same to Drew. Roman hits a super right hand and staggers McIntyre. Ziggler moves and Roman goes for him but as this happens Drew clobbers him. Ziggy tags in and hits a Super kick. Roman kicks at 2.

Back and Ziggler is riding Rollins like a backpack. Good looking sleeper hold. Seth breaks out but Ziggler hits a Famouser! Seth kicks at 2. Drew gets tagged in and he starts beating the hell out of Rollins. Rollins somehow throws Drew out of the ring and goes for the tag but Drew pulls Roman off of the apron. Drew and Ziggy double team Rollins before Ziggler tags in. They brawl outside the ring for a second before Ziggler gets smashes. Drew throws him in, tags in, get super kicked. Ziggler tags in, gets a buckle bomb. Rollins almost makes it before the Revival come out and beat Roman down. Rollins and Roman just get whooped up on by everyone who isn’t them. This would be a good Dean Ambrose return time.
