WWE RAW Coverage: Stalemate

Just like last week, Becky Lynch stole the show. And just like last week, she starred early. The rest of the show, for the most part, was a snore, away from the in-ring debut of Ethan Carter III. Sure, Bayley and Sasha Banks had an excellent match and Finn Balor starred in an emotional performance, but make no mistake, RAW is broken. It drags. It bores. And the last thing it needed was promo for Paige’s movie. 

Matches:

WWE RAW Women’s Champion: Ronda Rousey vs. Liv Morgan w/Sarah Logan and Ruby Riot: Morgan played games, but Rousey won with the Arm Bar and then challenged Logan.

WWE RAW Women’s Champion: Ronda Rousey vs. Sarah Logan w/Liv Morgan and Ruby Riot: Rousey dominates with strikes and won with the Arm Bar. After the match, Riott looked like she wanted a piece of Rousey, but she changed her mind. 

Four Corner Match for Tag Team Title Shot: Heavy Machinery: Tucker Knight and Otis Dozovic vs. Lucha House Party: Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado w/Kalisto vs. Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas vs. The Revival: Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson: Heavy Machinery Dominated but Dawson and Wilder got the win with the Shatter Machine on Dallas. 

WWE Women’s Tag Team Qualifier: Bayley and Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox and Nikki Cross: Bayley got destroyed but stole the win with a Rollup on Fox.

Jeff Jarrett w/Road Dogg vs. Elias: This match took far too long for one where the outcome was obvious. Elias, naturally won with the Drift Away. After the match Road Dogg hit the Shake, Rattle and Roll on Elias and Jarrett finished him off with the guitar shot.

Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley w/Lio Rush vs. Finn Balor: Lashley told Balor he’d have to fight Rush instead and then attacked him before the bell. Once the match started, Lashley attacked Balor again and got thrown out of the match. Although Rush got some licks in, Balor won with the Coup De Grace.

Ethan Carter III vs. Dean Ambrose: ECIII stole the win with a Jacknife counter of a Piledriver.

Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin vs. Braun Strowman and Kurt Angle: Another lengthy match that was far from exciting. Strowman beat on both Corbin and McIntyre and got his team DQed. However, Corbin and McIntyre attempted to get the last laugh as they took out both Angle and Strowman until the faces fought back. Strowman ended the show with a Chokeslam on Corbin on the ring steps.
