Last night’s Monday Night RAW was LIVE from Cleveland, Ohio. Kane vs John Cena in a No DQ Match and another confrontation between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar were the two heavily advertised segments for this week.
Here are some of the highlights from last night’s show:
- WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar opened tonight’s show with his advocate Paul Heyman. Heyman cut a vicious promo on Reigns and even mentioned his father and his uncle, the Wild Samoans.
- Reigns made his way out to the ring from the crowd and quickly grabbed a steel chair. Both men went back and forth but it ended with Lesnar overpowering Reigns and laying him out in the ring.
- Nia Jax def. Mickie James (with Alexa Bliss) via pinfall.
- Mustafa Ali and Cedric Alexander def. Drew Gulak and TJ Perkins via pinfall.
- Out came Miz and he was greeted with “Welcome Home” chants by the crowd in Cleveland. The Miz disapproved of this and told them that he lives in LA now.
- The Miz then turned his attention towards the Miztourage and dissed them for being “mediocre” and “failures”. The Miztourage assured him that they were doing their best but Miz dissed them some more.
- Seth Rollins came out and took the Miztourage’s side and said that they were underappreciated and also the reason why the Miz is Intercontinental Champion. This eventually leads to the Miz claiming that he would still be the champion without them.
- However, Bo Dallas interrupted the Miz and called him a “phony A-Lister who can’t fight” which lead to Finn Balor come out to witness the fall of the Miztourage. Miz also ended up dissing “Mr.Perfect” which lead to Axel giving him a cold stare as well.
- It looked like the Miztourage was about to attack the Miz but instead ended up attacking Balor and Rollins. However, the two challengers eventually fought back and cleared the ring before Balor attacked Rollins and stood tall in the ring with the IC title.
- Kane cut a backstage promo on John Cena and told him that there are certain demons you can’t call out.
- Asuka def. Jamie Frost via pinfall.
- “Woken” Matt Hardy announced that he will be entering the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.
- Bayley and Sasha Banks took part in a heated backstage segment which lead to a brawl that had to be separated by officials.
- Braun Strowman def. Sheamus via pinfall.
- Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey cut a promo on Stephanie and Triple H before they were interrupted by Absolution. The segment ended with Rousey destroying Absolution and forcing them to escape.
- The Club def. The Miztourage via pinfall.
- Elias def. Rhyno via pinfall.
- John Cena def. Kane in a NO DQ Match via pinfall.
- After the match, Cena cut a promo on the Undertaker and dissed him again. He ended the show by doing the Undertaker’s signature throat cut gesture.
