WWE RAW looked to match WWE Smackdown’s momentum from last night’s pay-per-view. Here are the highlights from WWE RAW –
Joe and Wyatt pick up a huge win
Former Shield members Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins took on the team of Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt to build some momentum ahead of the upcoming Extreme Rules event. Wyatt and Joe proved to be the more cohesive unit, with a shoulder injury to Reigns also working against the baby face team.
A miscommunication between Rollins and Reigns caused them to bump into each other, which allowed Samao Joe to lock in the Coquina Cluth on Rollins for the win while Wyatt took Reigns to the outside.
Alexa Bliss shows willingness to go extreme
Raw Women’s champion Alexa Bliss went one-on-one with Mickie James ahead of her match against Bayley. The champion was dominant from the opening bell, rendering her opponent almost incapable of mounting up any sort of comeback.
James got a few strikes in, but Bliss was all over her the entire match and capped off the contest with a DDT. After the match, Bliss hit James with a kendo stick – the weapon which will be a factor in her match with Bayley. Bayley came out to make the save and got the kendo stick out of Bliss’ hands, but Bliss scurried out of harm’s way.
Finn Balor needs to be taken seriously
Finn Balor faced a former ally in Karl Anderson in a competitive match-up. Both men were familiar with each other’s styles going into the contest – given their history with the Bullet Club in the NJPW. The action between the ropes was smooth and Balor and Anderson tried to win a mental game of chess, trying to anticipate the other’s next move.
In the end, Balor hit the Coup de Grace to pick up the win. Balor was also given a stamp of approval by Paul Heyman heading into the Fatal-Five way match scheduled to take place at Extreme Rules.
