WWE Raw aired live tonight from Evansville, Indiana. Here are the highlights from the action –
Hardys remain in title picture
Jeff and Matt Hardy beat the Club after being unable to secure the win last week and get their championships back from Sheamus and Cesaro. In order to remain in contention for the tag-team titles, they had to keep up their winning ways; and they did just that by getting the best the Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
Jeff Hardy was in full swing and steered the match in his team’s favor by putting a stop to any momentum that the opponents had. Jeff’s high-flying offense was too much to handle while Matt Hardy kept Anderson busy. Matt hit Gallows with a twist of fate out of the blue, and Jeff Hardy capped it off with a Swanton Bomb to seal the win.

Rollins and Wyatt have a war of words
Seth Rollins addressed the crowd after being named the cover superstar of WWE 2k18 and gave them part of the credit while showered with chants of ‘you deserve it’. Bray Wyatt appeared on the screen and cut a promo, running down Rollins and his achievements. Rollins retaliated by calling out Wyatt on his ego and said that gods exist only in people’s minds; in Rollins’ world, Wyatt is not a god. Wyatt promised consequences and blew the candle, closing the segment.
Roman Reigns falls victim to the Coquina Clutch
Samoa Joe went one-on-one against Roman Reigns in a blockbuster match. Joe was looking to back up his talk by taking the big dog in the lead-up to his clash for the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar.
The two big men engaged in a back-and-forth battle which culminated in Reigns getting the upper hand during the final exchanges. He called for the spear, but Joe reversed it. An ambulance comes out to the arena and distracts Reigns. Braun Strowman is revealed to be inside it. This allowed Joe to lock in the Coquina Clutch for the win.
Big Cass revealed as Enzo’s attacker
The long-running team of Enzo and Cass came to an end after Corey Graves and General Manager Kurt Angle unmasked the perpetrator behing the attacks. It was revealed that Cass had faked an injury and that WWE medics never treated him for anything. Cass conceded and told Enzo that he is tired of being held down by him. Cass called Enzo dead weight and the reason they never won championships. Cass floored Enzo with a big boot and headed down the ramp as the show came to a close.
