WWE Raw Winner and Match Card

The Usos def. Kevin Owens and Matt Riddle

Elias was taken out of this match, setting the stage for Ezekiel’s return. Instead, it was the man who took down Ezekiel, Kevin Owens.

Matt Riddle was laid out and carried out of the arena by Solo Sikoa. Hopefully this isn’t done to write him off TV and/or repackage. I fully expect to see Riddle and Randy Orton returns at the Royal Rumble.

Bayley defeated. Asuka and Rhea Ripley

Corey Graves called Bayley a “pillar” of the women’s division. Had he said that word in the Vince McMahon era, his headset would have been silent for the next 5 minutes.

Fans were very sluggish for this segment as both Becky Lynch and Bayley seemed put off early on by the lack of audience response. At one point, when Becky Lynch brought Bayley over, a frustrated Bayley even said, “You guys can cheer for that…”

Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley may have broken the record for longest stares ever.

Bobby Lashley confronts Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins told Bobby Lashley that Brock Lesnar was a bigger star than he was and that was enough to drive Bobby into a blind rage.

Bobby Lashley accidentally impaled producer Pete Williams during one of his patented pull-apart brawls. Hopefully this doesn’t lead to some sort of storyline suspension.

theory def. Mustafa Ali

Backstage, Mustafa Ali tells Austin Theory that he keeps writing checks that he can’t cash. Oh the irony.

Say goodbye to Muay Thai Ali, Mustafa is back in tights.

Kevin Patrick mentioned Mustafa Ali’s tweet earlier this morning but steered away from any talk of 9/11.

Corey Graves remarked that this could be Mustafa Ali’s last shot at a US title and we all know that’s a damn lie.

The OC Def. Baron Corbin and Alpha Academy

This six-man tag team match grew out of backstage poker antics. Surprisingly, Damian Mysterio was “introduced” and he went with a match against Akira Tozawa.

Fans sang along as Chad Gable and Luke Gallows had a shooosh/nerd-off.

After a promising start, Baron Corbin and JBL are slowly morphing into comedy characters in all the wrong ways.

Dominic Mysterio defeated. Akira Tozawa

Dominik Mysterio’s “I’m Your Mami” t-shirt is the best t-shirt remix since Randy Orton’s RKO t-shirt.

Dominik Mysterio came out of hell like a bat early in this game, and not in a good way.

Despite being cast in a comedy role earlier in the night, Dominik Mysterio won cleanly with a frog splash and stayed over.

Defeated Alexa Bliss. Nikki Cross and Becky Lynch

This was an up and down crowd that was unfortunately more down than up during this game.

This was supposed to be the main event but the crowd sounded like they left early. IT was a full house, they were just tired.

Damage CTRL hit Becky Lynch with a shield bomb and that was the end of her night.
