WWE RAW Coverage: Goldberg Returns, Nikki ASH Wins RAW Women’s Title

A new RAW Women’s Champion, the RAW in-ring debut of Karrion Kross, the return of Goldberg and a John Cena appearance made RAW interesting for the first time in months. With Summerslam around the corner, the Red Brand is starting off strong.

Matches:

The Viking Raiders: Erik and Ivar and Riddle vs. WWE RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos and John Morrison w/The Miz: Shenanigans from Riddle allowed The Raiders to hit The Viking Experience for the win.

Symphony of Destruction Match: Elias vs. Jaxson Ryker: Ryker got the win with a Superplex through two tables.

Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler w/Reginald vs. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina: A distraction from Reginald cost Jax and Baszler, but after Reginald was head butted by Jax, effectively ending their relationship, Reginald pinned Akira Tozawa to become the new 24/7 Champion.

United States Champion Sheamus vs. Humberto Carillo: Sheamus got his ass kicked here for a bit, but The Celtic Warrior got the win with the Brogue Kick after Carillo punched Sheamus in the face (his Nose Guard is still apparently)

WWE Champion Bobby Lashley w/MVP vs. Keith Lee: Lashley got the win with the Spear in a hard-fought win. After the match, Goldberg returned to challenge Lashley for the title at Summerslam.

NXT Champion Karrion Kross vs. Jeff Hardy: Hardy got the surprise win- making sure this could be the beginning of a fun angle. 

WWE RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley: Flair ended up retaining via DQ after she took out Ripley with her title on the outside. However, after the match, Ripley and Flair beat on one another and Nikki ASH cashed in the Money in the Bank to win the RAW Women’s Title.
