Away from the continued follies of Erick Rowan, this week’s RAW was super solid as Buddy Murphy joined the ranks of Seth Rollins and AOP, while several other feuds gained serious momentum.
Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles: Great opening bout, lots of offense. McIntyre got the win with the Claymore, which sent Orton out of the ring and allowed the Scottish Psychopath to pin Styles who was just hit with the RKO.
Ricochet vs. Mojo Rawley: Ricochet got the win with the 630 in a pretty standard enhancement squash.
Charlotte Flair vs. Sarah Logan: Logan tapped out to the Figure-Eight in a match that boggled the mind. What was the purpose of bringing Logan back so hot last week then?
Rusev vs. Bobby Lashley w/Lana: Liv Morgan got involved but Lashley pinned Rusev with a Spear.
WWE RAW Tag Team Champions: The Viking Raiders: Erik and Ivar: vs. The Singh Brothers: Sunil and Samir: A pure squash as the Champs delivered the Viking Experience.
Aleister Black vs. Buddy Murphy: Black won after a pair of Black Masses. Easily the best match on RAW this year.
Erick Rowan vs. Jobber: Another squash via Iron Claw.
Fist Fight: Big Show, Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe vs. Seth Rollins and AOP: Akam and Rezar: Thanks to the addition of Buddy Murphy, Rollins and his faction took down Show and company.
