The 06/25/18 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 #1309 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.


 

Opening Segment

 

Kurt Angle started the show with Constable Corbin. He tried to explain the whereabouts of Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, but before he could get too far, Roman Reigns interrupted with his full 30-minute entrance simply to say that the GM should continue. Bobby Lashley couldn’t let Reigns get all the attention and did the same.

Reigns and Lashley got into an argument over whose resume was better heading into Extreme Rules. Angle then announced that they were arguing over nothing, as the multi-man match at Extreme Rules was no longer happening because Brock Lesnar did not approve of it.

Bobby kept talking trash anyway, so Roman challenged him to a match right then. Angle said they couldn’t have a match tonight, but they could have one at Extreme Rules. The Revival then came to take advantage of the growing tension, and Baron Corbin overrode the GM’s decision and set a tag match between the four to take place immediately.


 

The Revival vs. Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns

 

Reigns and Lashley started things off (somewhat) on the same page, doing their best to overcome the well-oiled machine that is The Revival.

The Revival quickly got the upper hand with their heel tactics and solid teamwork. After The Big Dog got beat down for several minutes, Lashley tagged in and went to work. It looked like he and Reigns were going to take the victory, but they just couldn’t get along and their inability to work together cost them the match when Dash Wilder pinned Reigns with a roll-up.

Winner: The Revival


 

Matt Hardy vs. Curtis Axel

 

The Deletors of Worlds cut a promo somewhere in the upside down. They said although The B-Team’s imitation of them was flattering, it was going to cost them. Before coming to the ring, The B-Team responded with their own promo (in Hardy/Wyatt character, of course).

In a series of unfortunate events, Matt Hardy slipped and Curtis Axel pinned him after only a few minutes in the ring. The Deletors of Worlds looked as though they were going to attack The B-Team but simply congratulated them.

Winner: Curtis Axel


 

The Authors of Pain vs. The Gibson Brothers

 

On their way to the ring, The Authors of Pain shoved a random backstage employee to the floor. It’s been a while since we last saw them, so they had to remind us they were bad guys.

They did more of the same during the match, absolutely demolishing the Gibsons with no resistance. AoP continued to beat down their opponents after the match until Titus Worldwide ran down to make the save.

Winner: The Authors of Pain


 

We Got Ourselves a Tag Team Match

 

Kurt Angle and Baron Corbin argued backstage over the events of the show until Finn Bálor came in and insulted Corbin’s TGI Friday’s vest. Braun Strowman joined the party and requested a tag match with Kevin Owens as his partner. Angle asked who he wanted as opponents, and Braun nominated Corbin and Bálor.


 

Alexa and Mickie Throw Shade

 

With no threat of a Rousey attack due to a 30-day suspension, Alexa Bliss and Mickie James came to the ring to talk some trash. After tearing down Rowdy Ronda, they moved on to Nia Jax.

Natalya came out to defend her friends’ honor, so Alexa insulted her too. Instead of responding with talk, Natalya challenged her to a match. And she brought Nia along for the fun.


 

Natalya vs. Alexa Bliss

 

Alexa took control of this match early, wearing Natalya down. Unfortunately for the women’s champion, she wasn’t able to sustain the momentum and Natalya caught her in the Sharpshooter where she instantly tapped out.

Winner: Natalya


 

The Riott Squad vs. Ember Moon, Bayley, and Sasha Banks

 

The Riott Squad had a clear advantage over the ragtag team of Moon, Bayley, and Banks and won the match after a few short minutes.

Sasha just couldn’t catch a break and immediately after her defeat at the hands of Ruby Riott, Bayley jumped in to kick her while she was down. The Not-So Huggable One beat the daylights out of Sasha, leaving her lying in a heap at ringside.

Winner: The Riott Squad


 

No Way Jose vs. Mojo Rawley

 

Jose and his conga line awaited Rawley’s arrival to the ring. Rawley did come down the ramp, however, instead of joining Jose in the squared circle, he verbally attacked one of Jose’s conga friends, Cheeseburger Todd. He then denied Jose a rematch and walked back up the ramp after shoving his would-be opponent to the ground.


 

Bayley’s Got Problems

 

Kurt Angle gave Bayley an ultimatum backstage: either she goes to counseling next week, or she’s fired. Hopefully, it will be as entertaining as the Dean Ambrose counseling session, but something tells us it won’t be.


 

Braun Strowman and Kevin Owens vs. Finn Bálor and Baron Corbin

 

To Kevin Owens’ surprise, he and Strowman gelled well as a team and dominated the majority of this match. Corbin and Bálor could not say the same and actually attacked each other halfway through the action, allowing Strowman and Owens to win by count-out.

Owens excitedly began celebrating with his monstrous partner but got nervous when Braun wouldn’t join in and ran away before he could get those hands. Strowman chased him backstage, but Owens hid in a locker room and escaped to the parking area.

Turns out, Braun had taken his keys and somehow flipped his car upside down. Owens still didn’t get the hands though, as Strowman just walked away laughing.

Winner: Braun Strowman and Kevin Owens


 

Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler (c)

Intercontinental Championship Match

 

Rollins wasted no time invoking his rematch clause and took on The Show Off in an attempt to regain his IC Title. With Drew McIntyre lurking at ringside, Dolph Ziggler maintained control throughout the first half of the match. Rollins gained some momentum but was interrupted by McIntyre. He somehow overcame the attack and pinned Ziggler, but the referee was distracted in his attempt to throw McIntyre out and missed the three count.

The two continued to tear each other apart, sprinkling in a few near-falls, the crowd going wild for every move. After a fantastic half hour, Rollins hit a superplex followed by a Falcon Arrow, pinning the champion, but McIntyre broke it up yet again, this time causing a disqualification.

Ziggler and McIntyre continued to punish Rollins until Roman Reigns appeared, saving his Shield brother from the assault.

Winner: Seth Rollins (Via Disqualification)
