The first RAW after No Mercy was weak. Away from The Miz destroying Roman Reigns and Mickie James reestablishing her role in the Womenâ€™s Division, this was a passable RAW. Braun Strowmanâ€™s win over Dean Ambrose felt out of place and the Finn Balor/Goldust match was pure filer. RAW needs to work harder and ensure that every segment matters. Point blank, thereâ€™s too many times where you could take a bathroom break and not care.
And that goes for Enzoâ€™s finale as well.
Jason Jordan and Matt Hardy vs. Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel: A longer match than expected, but Hardy got the win on Dallas with the Twist of Fate.
Elias Sampson vs. Apollo Crews w/Titus Oâ€™Neill: Crews dominated, but Sampson stole the win after Crews focused on Oâ€™Neil and won with the Draft Away. After the match, Sampson then beat on Oâ€™Neill, who got the last laugh.
Curt Hawkins vs. Braun Strowman: Hawkins tried to run away, but Strowman Chokeslammed him through a table on the outside and then Powerslammed him through the entrance tron.
WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Dean Ambrose vs. Braun Strowman: Ambrose brought the fight to Stroman, but the Monster Among Men got the win with the Powerslam on a counter of Ambroseâ€™s Diving Elbow.
WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Dean Ambrose vs. Sheamus w/Cesaro: Rollins got the win with the Omega Knee.
Intercontinental Champion The Miz w/Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel vs. Roman Reigns: Axel and Dallas paid dividends during and after the match, especially when they beat on Reigns with a chair. In the end, though, Reigns won with the Spear. The Miz made the most of the moment however as he nailed Reigns with the Skull Crushing Finale on a chair.
Finn Balor vs. Goldust: Balor won with the Coup De Grace in a stale encounter that meant nothing.
Bailey and Sasha Banks vs. Nia Jax and Emma:Â Bayley got the win with the Belly-To-Bayley in another snore fest.
