RAW is Live! And starts with a recap of last weeks shenanigans involving Brock Lesnar. Oddly enough, I have become invested in this storyline. Uncle Kurt comes down to ring to start off RAW accompanied by Constable Corbin. Kurt talks about Ronda making her RAW in-ring debut. The vein in his neck makes an appearance as well. He takes shot at Brock Lesnar for not being there. Corbin tells him to watch it because…lines? Kurt continues. Roman interrupts, killing the momentum of a decent promo. Everyone boos the tits off of Roman before he speaks. Roman makes a big dog reference and blamed Kurt for getting F-5’d. He said it was his fault for kicking the Byg DAWG out. Way to victim shame Roman. They continue on, arguing amongst themselves. Somehow Roman vs. Baron Corbin was made into a match lol.
Baron Corbin vs. Roman Reigns:
Corbin cheap shots Roman. A ref finally gets to the ring. Roman hits a superman punch for a two count. Back from commercial Corbin is in control. He hits a big irish whip on Roman to the corner. Corbin remains in control for a while, getting in various rest holds. Roman eventually starts to come back because a Roman loss this close to Summer Slam would be baaaad. Roman tries to wear Corbin down but Corbin gets in another cheap shot and slams Roman into the ringpost. Commercial time once again. Back from commercial again and the two men are locked up in the ring. Roman hits a big Samoan Drop but Corbin kicks at 2! He hits a big boot and starts to get powered up as Corbin struggles on the mat. Roman goes for the Superman punch that gets reversed. He tries again but ends up in a big side walk slam. Roman kicks. Roman gets the upperhand again and whips Corbin but Corbin slides out and back in the ring and catches a Superman punch! Baron kicks at 2. Corbin tries to walk away but Finn Balor comes out to stop his retreat. Corbin catches another Super Man punch in the confusion. Roman hits a spear and gets the win!
Winner: Roman Reigns
