This week’s RAW was live from Dallas, Texas. This episode saw the return of the Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar as well as the much-hyped Ultimate Deletion match between Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt.
Here are some of the highlights from last night’s show:
- RAW General Manager Kurt Angle opened the show but was interrupted by Roman Reigns.
- Roman was accused of trespassing by Angle and security had to be called to escort him out. Reigns ended up getting handcuffed and then attacked the security team.
- Lesnar’s music hit and he laid a vicious beat-down upon Reigns. Lesnar then went on to attack the stretcher that Reigns was laid upon.
- Alexa Bliss cut a promo on Nia Jax before her non-title match against Asuka.
- Asuka def. Alexa Bliss (via count-out). After the match, Nia Jax came out and attacked Mickie James and Alexa Bliss.
- Braun Strowman def. Cesaro (via pinfall)
- The Revival def. Titus Worldwide (via pinfall). After the match, The Revival announced their entry into the Andre the Giant battle royal.
- Mark Henry was announced as the newest inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame.
- Sasha Banks and Bayley partook in a heated segment, sowing the seeds for a future feud before their match against Absolution.
- Absolution def. Bayley and Sasha Banks (via pinfall).
- Cena came out and cut yet another promo on the Undertaker. Cena was clearly frustrated with Taker’s silence and called him out on it. Cena went on to diss Taker a bit more until Kane came out. Kane grabbed Cena by the throat and choke slammed him in the middle of the ring.
- The Balor Club def. The Miz and the Miztourage (via pinfall). Seth Rollins was on the commentary for this match. After the match, The Miz and the Miztourage attacked The Balor Club but Rollins made the save and cleared the ring.
- A video package of Ronda Rousey’s journey to WrestleMania 34 was shown.
- The Ultimate Deletion is upon us. Bray Wyatt entered the Hardy Compound to face his foe, Woken Matt Hardy.
- The match saw lots of shenanigans that one would expect from Matt Hardy’s Woken/Broken Universe. Jeff Hardy, Senor Benjamin, Skarsgard, Vanguard 1 and Queen Rebecca all made brief cameos. The match ended when Matt Hardy pinned Wyatt with some assistance from his loyal soldiers. After the match, Hardy threw Wyatt into the Lake of Reincarnation and declared that he had been deleted.
