WWE RAW Coverage: Sleepy Go Home Before Extreme Rules

Don’t let the monster card fool you. This week’s RAW was a slow plodding mess, that did little to get Extreme Rules over. The tease of a Brock Lesnar appearance at the PPV did little as well.

Matches:

Mixed Tag Team Elimination Match: Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega vs. Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins: No real surprise here as Lynch tapped out Vega with the Dis-Arm-Her and Almas and Rollins had fun with spots and chain wrestling. Rollins eventually won with the Curb Stomp, but Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans beat on the winners after the match.

The Miz and Jimmy and Jey Uso vs. WWE RAW Tag Team Champions The Revival: Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson and Elias: The Revival got the first victory with the Shatter Machine on Jey, but Elias walked out on the match. The Miz ended up with the second fall thanks to a Skull-Crushing Finale on Dawson. Then, after a pair of Super Kicks, Jimmy beat Dawson with the Top Rope Splash.

Rey Mysterio vs. Bobby Lashley: Lashley destroyed him with the Spear.

Cesaro vs. No Way Jose: Cesaro got the quick win with the Sharpshooter.

The Viking Raiders: Erik and Ivar vs. Colin and Devin Justin: Another squash as Erik and Ivar won with the Viking Experience.

Luke Gallows w/AJ Styles and Karl Anderson vs. WWE United States Champion Ricochet: Gallows was in control, but Ricochet won out of nowhere. After the match, Styles convinced the Champion to have a match with Anderson.

Karl Anderson w/AJ Styles and Luke Gallows vs. WWE United States Champion Ricochet: Richochet then beat Anderson with the 630 before Styles got involved, as well as the rest of The Club.

Beat the Clock: Winner Picks Stipulation: WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley vs. Sarah Logan: Bayley won with the modified Bucklebomb in four minutes and 32 seconds.

Beat the Clock: Winner Picks Stipulation: Nikki Cross vs. Dana Brooke: Cross won with the Neckbreaker with a minute and 50 seconds to spare. 

Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns and Gary Garbutt: McIntyre won with the Claymore, but Garbutt (who later was revealed as Cedric Alexander) proved himself worthy of being in the ring.
