by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s WWE Monday Night Raw review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and if a plane has 19 passengers and 72 seats, how old is the pilot? The answer is…how the f–k would you know?! I didn’t give you any information to make an educated guess. Don’t give me any bull-s–t about number manipulation! The problem is not fit to be solved! Don’t contend with me! Wakakakakakaka!!!!!!!!!! Shut up and get ready for wresl… wait… WWE… wrestling… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!! No f–kin’ way! I…ow! A f–kin’ coconut hit me on the head! That really hurt! Ow! I’m pissed now! Raw starts now! These t-shirts are too tight Billy!

[Author’s Note: Riddle, who has been accused of rape and has settled the case out of court, has not been found guilty or innocent and if that upsets you then viewer discretion is advised].

Match #1: Drew McIntyre def. Baron Corbin

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

At the request of Jinder Mahal, the increasingly downtrodden Baron Corbin exercised the quarterly brand-to-brand invitational to come over from SmackDown and take on Drew McIntyre in an attempt to turn around his luck. The Scottish Warrior laid in a significant amount of punishment throughout the match and almost convinced Corbin he felt sorry for him. Almost was the key word, as McIntyre proceeded to nail Corbin with the Claymore to pick up the victory and send another stern message to Mahal.

The Verdict: 3 out of 10

Match #2: Karrion Kross def. Jeff Hardy

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After anticipating it for weeks, NXT Champion Karrion Kross finally got his rematch against “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy. Hardy brought the fight, but this time the vicious Kross proved to be too much as he made Hardy fall and pray by forcing him to submit to the Kross Jacket. The closing bell wasn’t enough for the vicious NXT Champion, as he locked in another Kross Jacket on Hardy to further make a statement following the match.

The Verdict: 6 out of 10

Match #3: Alexa Bliss def. Doudrop

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Eva Marie led Doudrop to the ring to finally go toe-to-toe with Alexa Bliss, but Little Miss Bliss also had someone in her corner, and that someone was Lilly. As the mental war raged, Doudrop eventually made eerie eye contact with the blissful doll, and the result was Lilly pulling off a mind-bending wink, confounding Doudrop to the point of defeat at the hands of Bliss.

The Verdict: 2 out of 10

Match #4: United States Champion Sheamus def. Ricochet

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Sheamus made sure The Miz & John Morrison stayed far away, as the United States Champion looked to bounce back in one-on-one action against Ricochet. As a master of aerial offense, Ricochet gave it everything he had, including an incredible crossbody onto the announce table, but all it took was one big headbutt and a Brogue Kick from The Celtic Warrior to deliver Sheamus the victory.

The Verdict: 7 out of 10

Match #5: Damian Priest def. John Morrison

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Damian Priest looked for another big win against John Morrison. America’s Moist Wanted just did not have enough in the tank, as Priest connected with the Reckoning to earn the victory. The Archer of Infamy witnessed The Miz get up from his wheelchair and get out of dodge as quickly as he could after the match to the shock of the WWE Universe, but it wasn’t enough to deter his attention from his real focus: a United States Championship Match against Sheamus at SummerSlam, which The Celtic Warrior gladly accepted.

The Verdict: 4 out of 10

Match #6: T-BAR def. Mustafa Ali

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After Mansoor presented him with a custom jacket to make up for their loss last week, Mustafa Ali looked to teach his new partner a lesson by attempting to defeat an old one in T-BAR. Ali put up a strong fight, but the massive T-BAR showed his dominance and defeated the former RETRIBUTION leader with a devastating knee to the face. Right after the match, MACE & T-BAR looked to deliver High Justice to Ali, but Mansoor made sure that didn’t happen by fighting off the formidable duo.

The Verdict: 2 out of 10

Match #7: Raw Women’s Champion Nikki A.S.H. def. Rhea Ripley (via DQ)

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Riding high off her victory against Charlotte Flair in a No Holds Barred Match, Raw Women’s Champion Nikki A.S.H. aimed for another huge win going against her other SummerSlam opponent, Rhea Ripley. What unfolded was an incredibly hard-hitting, back-and-forth match that was eventually interrupted by Flair, who unleashed a vicious attack on both competitors. The Queen then took the opportunity to raise the Raw Women’s Championship high above her head, signifying that she intends to walk out of SummerSlam as a 12-time Women’s Champion.

The Verdict: 5 out of 10

Match #8: Randy Orton def. AJ Styles

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Randy Orton came back with a purpose, looking to reestablish his dominance as a solo competitor by putting RK-Bro behind him. His target was AJ Styles, and as a grueling Raw main event ensued, a dejected Riddle emerged to try and win The Viper’s good graces back by jumping all over Omos and causing Styles to be distracted, which actually led to an incredible RKO and victory for Orton. Following the bout, Orton initially showed appreciation for The Original Bro’s assistance with a heartwarming hug, only to drop Riddle with a swift RKO out of nowhere.

The Verdict: 7 out of 10

Major News:

  1. Elias burned his guitar and is no longer Elias.
  2. Randy Orton attacked Riddle.

Final Verdict: 4/10
