WWE Raw Results:
– The show opened with Samoa Joe goading Roman Reigns into a fight, with The Bar laying in wait. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose tried to make the save for Roman, but also got beaten down.
1. Absolution defeated Sasha Banks, Bayley and Mickie James. Paige superkicked James, allowing Mandy Rose to pin her and win the match.
– Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt laughed at each other on video again.
2. Finn Bálor defeated Curtis Axel. Bálor pinned Axel after a Coup de Grace.
3. Seth Rollins defeated Sheamus. Rollins won the match with a superkick and a knee to the face.
4. “Second Chance” Fatal Four-way: Cedric Alexander defeated Tony Nese, Mustafa Ali and Ariya Daivari. This was to name Drew Gulak’s opponent in the number one contender match for the Cruiserweight Championship after Rich Swann had his opportunity revoked. Alexander pinned Daivari after a Lumbar Check.
5. Intercontinental Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) defeated Cesaro. Reigns won a competitive match with a spear.
– Asuka vs. Alicia Fox never happened. Fox never showed up, so Absolution came out instead and tried to attack Asuka 3-on-1. Before they could finish the beatdown, the entire Raw women’s roster (including Fox) showed up to make the save.
6. Samoa Joe defeated Dean Ambrose. Ambrose appeared to have the match won, but Jason Jordan (upset about not getting the match with Joe) got on the apron. Ambrose confronted Jordan, allowing Joe to take both of them out and choke Ambrose out in the Coquina Clutch.
7. Braun Strowman vs. Kane ended in a double count-out after Strowman put Kane through the ringside barricade. No word on what that means for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship match at Royal Rumble. After the match, they continued to brawl.
