Bobby Lashley has a match with Elias, and The Shield will kick off RAW according to updates from WWE.com.

Botches

Braun Strowman called the Upcoming WWE Super Show-Down the WWE Super Show. He failed to properly brand the upcoming show and will probably face the wrath for it. It’s a silly thing, but with how careful the WWE is with the words its performers say, I’m betting there was a big deal made about it backstage.

Brie Bella knocked out Liv Morgan with a knee to the face during the Yes Kicks. Morgan was escorted backstage in the middle of the match while at commercial break and the rest of the ladies finished. That looked brutal, and I hope Morgan doesn’t have a serious injury as a result.

 

Bodyslams

Ziggler, McIntyre, and Strowman driving the wedge in between The Shield members and trying to get Ambrose to turn was really well executed. It could have gone off the rails and turned cheesy or made the heels look desperate, but everyone delivered. Ziggler nailed his part, and has been at the top of his game lately.

Finn Balor vs. Jinder Mahal was a better match than I expected and Mahal has been pulled through some pretty good matches lately.

Kevin Owens and Elias were at their best on The Kevin Owens Show. These two can control the crowd with their mouths like no others on the RAW roster.

Authors of Pain in the Main Event. Drake Maverick still doesn’t make sense as their manager, but at least they’re finally getting the spotlight they deserve.

 

This episode of RAW was a bit disjointed, starting off slow and taking a while to get to the first match, delivering a surprisingly hot opener, slowing down, sputtering through the middle, and finally closing strong. Brie Bella is the only superstar on the roster performing on both the RAW and Smackdown brands, save Corey Graves. With the Bellas back in the ring, the cross promotion to maximize their exposure alongside the latest season of Total Divas is inescapable. The Women’s Division had a strong showing tonight to help lead into the upcoming Evolution Pay Per View. It was good to see The Revival brought back into the Tag Team Title picture, as brief as it was. The matches were solid and the show was entertaining overall.
