WWE RAW Coverage: Mist-ified

Don’t let the big card fool you. There was little sizzle this week on RAW. Not even a Steel Cage match featuring Lashley at the start of the night could save it. Add in the continued mismanagement of both Finn Balor and AJ Styles and it was another collection of wasted opportunities.

Matches:

Steel Cage Match: Bobby Lashley vs. Omos w/MVP: Cedric Alexander and MVP beat on Omos outside the cage to start the match. Lashley got in some licks on MVP and Alexander but Omos threw him through the cage and ironically Lashley got the win.

United States Champion Theory vs. Mustafa Ali: The Miz was brought in as special guest referee and then Theory brought in Veer Mahan to wrestle in his place. Mahan got challenged a bit, but got the win with the Cervical Clutch. Mahan went for a table, but Rey and Dominik Mysterio made the save.

WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Riddle vs. WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champion Jimmy Uso w/Jey Uso: The Usos tried to play the numbers game, but Riddle was able to sneak out a win.

Finn Balor and AJ Styles w/Liv Morgan vs. Los Lotharios: Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo: The Heels got in some offense but Balor won with the Coup De Grace after a Phenomenal Forearm

Alexa Bliss vs. Sonya Deville: Deville tried to heel her way through the match and nearly won with a Spinebuster, but Bliss won with her DDT variation.

Chad Gable w/Otis and Kevin Owens vs. Ezekiel: Ezekiel got the win with a Rollup and escaped unscathed.

Asuka vs. Becky Lynch: These two obviously have chemistry and this one was solid. Lynch thought she was smart attacking Bianca Belair ringside and then tried to use Asuka’s umbrella, but Asuka was ready with the Green Mist and the Buzzsaw Kick for the win.
