WWE RAW Coverage: Beefy Card, Awful Booking

Don’t let the beefy card fool you, the book on this week’s RAW was awful as Zelina Vega’s new faction was destroyed just a week after they were formed. At this point, you have to wonder what is going on in the writing room for RAW. It’s a mess.

Matches:

Money in the Bank Qualifier: Aleister Black vs. Austin Theory: Theory did much better than others and avoided the Black Mass twice, but the third time was the charm for Black.

Indi Hartwell vs. Shayna Baszler: Baszler earned the stoppage after she destroyed Hartwell’s arm.

Ricochet and Cedric Alexander vs. Shane Thorne and Brendan Vink: Ricochet and Alexander won with the Recoil and Lumbar Check.

Kairi Sane vs. Nia Jax: Sane worked hard and got in her share of licks, but Jax got the win with the Samoan Drop.

Money in the Bank Qualifier: Apollo Crews vs. MVP: MVP did everything but win and Crews eventually got the win with a Gorilla Press, Standing Shooting Star and a Powerbomb.

Liv Morgan vs. Ruby Riott: A solid back and forth that saw Morgan win with the Springboard Flatliner.

Money in the Bank Qualifier: Rey Mysterio vs. Murphy: Another match where the heel did everything but win. Mysterio got the win with the 619 and Frog Splash.

Kayden Carter vs. NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair: Carter was hungry, but Flair won with the Figure-Eight.

Akira Tozawa vs. United States Champion Andrade w/Zelina Vega: Tozawa nearly pulled out the upset, but Andrade won with the Hammerlock DDT.

Bianca Belair vs. Santana Garrett: A pure squash as Belair won with the KOD.

Drew McIntyre vs. Angel Garza: McIntyre won with the Claymore in a match that Garza never stood a chance in.
