WWE RAW Coverage: New Faces, Same Old Story

Lackluster matches, but some fresh matchups made RAW stomach able, but not by much.

Matches:

No DQ: Kevin Owens vs. Aleister Black: This was a war and one that either man could have won. Owens eventually got the win with the Stunner and a Powerbomb through a table.

AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Seth Rollins: Rollins escaped a Calf Crusher and a Senton Bomb and Hardy hit Styles with the Twist of Fate before Elias nailed Hardy with the guitar, which allowed Styles to win.

Lana and Natalya Neidhart vs. Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose: Brooke won with the Senton off Rose’s back in a glorified squash. After the match, Natalya ended her relationship with Lana.

Angel Garza vs. Andrade: Wow. Garza beat the former NXT Champion cleanly with the Wing Clipper.

RAW Tag Team Champions: Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods vs. Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode: Ziggler and Roode put up a fight, but the Midnight Hour gave Kingston and Woods the win.

Ricochet vs. Cedric Alexander with United States Champion Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander and MVP: Ricochet pulled the old Eddie Guerrero fool the referee to earn the win by DQ. 

RAW and Smackdown Women’s Title Battle Royal: In a crazy twist, Lana ended up with the win to earn the shot at the RAW title. After Nia Jax put her through the announce table at the start of the match, everyone forgot about her and she eliminated Natalya to win the match.
