WWE RAW Coverage: Banks Gaining Momentum

With Extreme Rules just a few weeks away, the WWE continued to build the card for the show. Although there were some quality matches to be had, why did Ric Flair and Big Show have to be on the program? Why does the WWE continue to kill the push of Andrade and Angel Garza? When will they let Bobby Lashley loose?

At some points int he show, seeing Shotzi Blackheart ringside was the most entertaining part of the show. Simply put, WWE needs to do better.


Angel Garza and Andrade w/Zelina Vega vs. The Viking Raiders: Erik and Ivar: Better teamwork allowed a Back Elbow from Andrade and the Wing Clipper from Garza to put Erik down for the three-count.

24/7 Champion Akira Tozawa vs. R-Truth: And just like that, R-Truth is your new 24/7 Champion.

Seth Rollins and Murphy vs. Aleister Black and Humberto Carrillo: Rollins eventually put Carillo away with a Stomp and then hit the maneuver again on the Mexican star on the ring steps.

Ruby Riott vs. Peyton Royce w/Billie Kay: Kay of course paid dividends and Royce won with the Spinebuster variation.

Big Show vs. Andrade and Angel Garza w/Zelina Vega: Garza walked out on Andrade and Show hit an awful looking Chokeslam for the win.

United States Champion Apollo Crews vs. MVP w/Bobby Lashley: Thanks to Lashley, MVP got the win. But after the match, Lashley destroyed Crews before Cedric Alexander and Ricochet hit the ring to help out their pal.

Ricochet w/Cedric Alexander vs. Bobby Lashley w/MVP: Ricochet certainly didn’t lay down, but Lashley dominated and won with he Full Nelson.

Dolph Ziggler and WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Sasha Banks w/WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion and Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley vs. WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and RAW Women’s Champion Asuka: Everyone got their licks in to try and establish these major matches for Extreme Rules. Banks ended up with the huge win to get some much-needed momentum before Extreme Rules.
