WWE RAW Coverage: Fresh Matchups Fuel Fun Show

Showing off some depth in the United States and Women’s Title Divisions, this week’s RAW showcased both Nia Jax and Damian Priest. While promo from Goldberg slowed things down and RKBro continue their fun push, this still gave RAW a different flavor. As a result, the show was, for the first time in weeks, watchable.

Matches:

Rhea Ripley with Nikki ASH vs. Shayna Baszler w/Nia Jax: Jax promised to beat on both Ripley and ASH and that’s exactly what happened. Although Ripley won with a Rollup reversal into one of her own, she was left destroyed by the end of the match.

Viking Raiders: Erik and Ivar vs, Veer and Jinder Mahal w/Shanky: Wow, the Viking Raiders dominated, and Erik got the clean win over Mahal and Veer with The Viking Experience on the former WWE Champion.

United States Champion Damian Priest vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre: Tons of offense as all three managed to make their case to hold the US Title. McIntyre hit Sheamus with the Future Shock DDT, but Sheamus nearly won with the High Knee/Botched Brogue Kick. McIntyre then hit Sheamus with The Claymore and Priest was able to counter McIntyre and win with Reckoning.

Piper Niven vs. Eva Marie: Niven attacked Eva Marie before the bell and Marie was unable to compete.

Karrion Kross vs. Humberto Carillo: Carillo tried, but Kross got the win with the Doomsday Saito and the Kross Jacket.

Nia Jax vs. RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair: This match was a sloppy mess, but there was emotion there. Jax got the win with the Powerbomb in the non-title match.

Omos w/AJ Styles vs. John Morrison: A disaster, Morrison missed a spot on the outside and Omos won in the ring.

AJ Styles vs. Xavier Woods: Woods held his own but Styles won with the Calf Crusher.

WWE RAW Tag Team Champions: RKBro: Riddle and Randy Orton vs. WWE World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley and MVP: Riddle won with the Senton from the top and interference from AJ Styles and Omos didn’t matter. After the bell, Lashley ate an RKO.
