WWE RAW Coverage: New Day Rocks

With Roadblock this Sunday, you’s expect the RAW creative team to set up all of the title matches and build drama. That’s exactly what they did, but in easily the most boring day possible. Thanks to a plethora of squash matches and a main event that no one cared about, this was a weak episode.


WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day: Kofi Kingston and Big E. Langston w/Xavier Woods vs. Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson: Cesaro and Sheamus should have won this one, but The New Day was the smarter team, as Kingston hit the Trouble in Paradise on Sheamus to secure the win and put them on track to become the longest reigning Tag Team Champions in WWE history.

Braun Strowman vs. Curtis Axel: Another squash for Strowman who beat Axel with the Wheelbarrow Front Slam.

Aria Daivari vs. Lince Dorado: Daivari was about to get the win over Dorado before Jack Gallagher hit the ring to announce, as a gentleman, that he was going to interfere in the match. Soon enough, that’s exactly what happened and the match was thrown out.

TJ Perkins vs. Brian Kendrick: Perkins wasn’t about to fall down, but Kendrick got the win with the Sliced Bread #2.

Bayley vs. Alicia Fox: Bayley got the win with the Belly-to-Bayley.

Sami Zayn vs. Jinder Mahal: Zayn got the win with a the Helluva Kick and after Mick Foley told him he was traded to Smackdown Live for Eva Marie. Luckily, it was all a ploy to piss off Zayn, who ultimately got his match with Braun Strowman for Road Block.

Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens vs. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day: Big E. Langston and Xavier Woods w/Kofi Kingston: This was a fun match, but it was a spot fest. No storytelling at all. After some miscommunication between Jericho and Owens, Rollins hit Jericho with the Pedigree, but Langston pulled Rollins out of the ring and allowed Woods to steal the win. After the match, Jericho and Owens argued before Reigns nailed the Universal Champion with the Spear to end the show.
