WWE RAW Coverage: Fireballs?

Lackluster story and several matches and segments that missed the mark doomed this RAW early. It didn’t matter that Triple H was there. This was a stinker. The fireball in the face of Randy Orton cemented it. 

Matches:

Lacey Evans vs. WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Charlotte Flair: Ric Flair hit the ring and got involved once again, placing Evans’ legs on the ropes after Charlotte hit The Natural Selection. Later, he held his daughter’s legs, which allowed Evans to get the win.

Jeff Hardy vs. Jaxson Ryker w/Elias: Ryker won with a Rollup after a distraction from Elias in a  waste of a segment. After the match, Hardy demanded a match with Elias.

Jeff Hardy vs. Elias w/Jaxson Ryker: Hardy got the clean win with the Twist of Fate and Swanton Bomb.

The Miz and John Morrison vs. Keith Lee and Sheamus: Miz and Morrison tried, but Lee and Sheamus were on the same page. Big Red ended up with the win with The Brogue Kick.

Keith Lee vs. Sheamus: This match started with no context. Apparently these two began to fight during the commercial break. Lee won with a Spirit Bomb, but after the match, the two hugged.

Dominik Dijakovic w/Mustafa Ali, Mia Yim, Dio Maddin and Shane Thorne vs. Xavier Woods: Dijakovic got the win with Feast Your Eyes.

United States Champion Bobby Lashley w/MVP vs. Riddle: Lashley won with the Hurt Lock, but after the match, Riddle challenged MVP.

 MVP w/United States Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Riddle: Lashley Speared Riddle to get this match thrown out.

AJ Styles w/Omos vs. Drew Gulak: Styles got the win with the Phenomenal Forearm, but Gulak proved he belonged with plenty of offense.

Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke vs. Mia Jax and Shayna Baszler: A fun one that Baszler won with the K Clutch.

Triple H vs. Randy Orton: This match never concluded as Triple H disappeared and Alexa Bliss arrived and hit Randy Orton with a fireball. Yes. A fireball.
