The 07/02/18 episode of WWE Monday Night Raw just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results and our overall thoughts on the show for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #1310 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.


Raw is Reigns


Roman Reigns came to the ring to say that he was embarrassed about losing to The Revival, but that it wasn’t his fault; clearly, Bobby Lashley cost him the match. He then challenged “Bob” to a fight to get his revenge but instead got Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre.

D & D were upset with Roman for interfering with their beatdown of Seth Rollins last week and a brawl ensued. Ziggler and McIntyre put the boots to Roman until, you guessed it, Rollins ran down the ramp to save his friend.

After the scuffle, Seth and Roman confronted Kurt Angle. Seth was fine with waiting until next week to get their match against Dolph and Drew, but Roman demanded that it take place tonight and Angle conceded.


Matt Hardy vs. Curtis Axel


Before the match, The B-Team made an attempt to throw Hardy off his game by delivering a threatening promo in Deletors of Worlds cosplay.

Without Bray Wyatt by his side, Matt Hardy struggled against Axel. He did his best to DELETE the opposition but was unable to bring down the undefeated B-Team.

Winner: Curtis Axel


The Big Dog’s Big Brass Ones


Backstage, Reigns and Rollins discussed their upcoming matches (or lack thereof in Roman’s case) at Extreme Rules. Bobby Lashley interrupted to confront Roman about his comments in the opening segment.

Reigns and Lashley had a short conversation about their rematch against The Revival, each one of them unsuccessfully attempting to lay out a game plan for the other to follow.


Bayley and Banks Go to Counseling


Bayley and Sasha were shown with their new counselor, Dr. Shelby. Both women were obviously displeased with the joint session, but Shelby was unfazed and laid out what he expected from the two of them going forward.


Titus Worldwide vs. Authors of Pain


For the second week in a row, AoP dominated in the ring. Titus Worldwide got slightly more offense than The Gibson Brothers, but not enough to come remotely close to winning.

After a short bout, Authors of Pain hit The Last Chapter on Apollo Crews for the victory.

Winner: Authors of Pain


Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler


Ziggler and McIntyre dominated the majority of the match, wearing down both Reigns and Rollins until Roman shifted the momentum with a slap to the face of Dolph.

A little bit of offense from Rollins had the crowd on their feet, but it didn’t take long for D & D to regain control. Reigns and Rollins might have triumphed in the end, but The Revival caused a disqualification by attacking Roman.

Winner: Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns (via DQ)


Kurt Angle Sets a Match


A frantic Kevin Owens approached Kurt Angle to demand he deal with Braun Strowman. Owens suggested counseling or suspension but instead got a match against The Monster to take place later in the evening.


Constable Corbin Wants an Apology


Back in the ring, Baron Corbin showed a play-by-play of the collapse of his tag match with Finn Bálor last week. He then invited Bálor to the ring to give him a chance to apologize for his actions.

Finn came out and even gave apologies – first for getting Baron fired from TGI Fridays, then for his new haircut. He called Corbin Stephanie McMahon’s stooge and Baron attacked him, but after a slingblade from Bálor, the constable quickly retreated back up the ramp to avoid further retaliation.


Ember Moon vs. Liv Morgan


Liv Morgan didn’t go down without a fight, getting a fair amount of offense before being overpowered by Ember Moon, who claimed the victory with her Eclipse.

Winner: Ember Moon


Bayley and Banks Go to Counseling (pt. 2)


Dr. Shelby hosted “honesty theater” between Bayley and Banks. They pretended to be each other and, as expected, it did not go well. Kind of like the entire counseling idea.


Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley vs. The Revival


With a frustrated Bobby Lashley looking on, The Revival continued their assault on Roman Reigns. To make matters worse, Reigns refused to tag Lashley in.

The match ended in disorder – Lashley got tired of waiting and left Roman to be pummeled by both Dawson and Dash, causing a disqualification.

Post-match, Reigns demanded a match against Bobby Lashley, which Kurt Angle set to take place at Extreme Rules.

Winner: Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley (via DQ)


Mojo Rawley vs. No Way Jose


Once again, No Way Jose requested a rematch from Mojo Rawley and, once again, Rawley denied him. Only this time, Jose threw a punch at Rawley, but missed – and then probably regretted the decision because Rawley destroyed him. And one of his conga line pals.


Ronda Rousey Speaks


Renee Young sat down with a suspended Ronda Rousey to discuss Extreme Rules. Rousey said that, although she wasn’t allowed at Raw, she would be front row for the pay-per-view. Expect shenanigans.


Nia Jax vs. Mickie James


Nia Jax made her entrance mic in hand and announced that her match against Alexa Bliss next Sunday would take place under extreme rules. Mickie James had Bliss at ringside, so Nia brought Natalya along for the ride, forcing Bliss and James to stay in line.

Because Bliss wasn’t able to distract Jax, she defeated James relatively easily.

Winner: Nia Jax


Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens


Kevin Owens took a deep breath and got in the ring with Strowman, but took off running immediately after the bell. The 10-count lost him the match, but he didn’t seem to care. Owens hid in a port-a-potty, which struck us as a terrible decision – and it was.

Braun found him, but instead of pulling him out, duct taped the door shut and dragged the entire thing through the arena and out to the stage. Once there, he ran at it, shoving it off the stage and onto the floor.

The show closed with officials tending to a sludge-covered Kevin Owens while Braun celebrated.

Winner: Braun Strowman (via countout)
