The Raw Truth (UK Edition)

WWE RAW came to us taped from The O2 Arena in London, England.

Because of the prevalence of “spoilers” and them taping, many of the highlights were known prior to the US broadcast Monday evening. Here are a few things that stood out:

Roman Reigns was unable to cash in on another opportunity for Money In The Bank qualification. He took out his anger on Jinder Mahal throughout the show, including a spear through a “wall” backstage.

Seth Rollins retained his IC Title after a great match with Kevin Owens. Probably highlight of the night!

A lot of buzz around the announcement of Nia Jax defending her title at MITB against Ronda Rousey. This was predictable but not sure how this will play out. Size makes this an awkward match-up. I still look for a heel turn from Rousey and an alignment with either HHH/Stephanie or Heyman at some point.

The B Team (Axel and Dallas) are undefeated! They beat Breezango in a battle of the bad gimmicks.

Bobby Roode qualified for MITB with a win in a Three Way Match with No Way Jose and Baron Corbin.

Natalya, Banks and Moon defeated The Riott Squad.

Hardy/Wyatt defeated The Revival.

Sami Zayn seems to be working a program with Lashley? He says Lashley’s sisters will appear on RAW next week to expose Lashley for “what he really is.” Although Zayn can be funny, this segment lost power quickly and lasted way too long.

Alexa Bliss qualified for MITB Ladder Match. This wasn’t a shock.

McIntyre and Ziggler snuck by Balor and Strowman. I understand this match for “getting McIntyre and Ziggler over,” but it was a sloppy match. Not a lot of harmony in the match and looked real clumsy at times. WWE continues to do all they can to push Strowman, in any way they can.

Kevin Owens was given another chance to qualify for MITB later in the show, after a “call” to Stephanie McMahon. Owens took Mahal’s spot (after attack from Reigns) and battled with Lashley and Elias in a Three Way qualifier.

Owens ended the match with a Frog Splash to Elias for the pinfall in middle of ring.

MITB Ladder Match now set with: Owens, Strowman, Balor, Roode, Miz and Rusev
