The 05/14/18 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 #1303 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.


The Big Dog is Angry


Roman Reigns opened the show with his usual epic level of swagger. He came to the ring (amidst a chorus of boos) and wasted no time in calling out Jinder Mahal. He waited patiently, but instead of the Maharaja, he got the Raw GM, Kurt Angle.

Angle said that he was wrong to give Roman another opportunity to be in the Money in the Bank ladder match, as it wasn’t “best for business”. He announced Jinder’s qualifier match to take place later in the evening and said that he understood if Roman was upset with him, but he had no choice.

Reigns angrily walked back up the ramp and into the backstage area, followed by Angle. We quickly realized Roman was in pursuit of Mahal, and chaos ensued once they found each other. They brawled backstage for a while until the action spilled out into the arena.

Mahal made his escape when he was detained by several officials.


Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens

Intercontinental Championship Match


This was an exciting match with Owens vying for Rollins’ IC Title. If nothing else, Rollins proved that he is no slouch, as he worked hard for his championship. There were a few moments where Owens started to pick up some steam, but Rollins had a counter for everything he could throw. After an action-packed bout, Rollins retained with his Curb Stomp.

Both Rollins and Owens continue to show the WWE Universe the depth of their respective talent, tearing it up every single week.

Winner: Seth Rollins


The B-Team Backstage


Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas were shown backstage requesting a Raw Tag Titles match from Kurt Angle. They said that they had even come up with a new name now that the Miztourage was over: The B-Team. The Miztourage may not have had many victories under their belts, but The B-Team was undefeated.

Angle said that he was unwilling to give them a title match, but that he would be happy to put them in a regular tag match later in the evening.


Bobby Roode vs. No Way Jose vs. Baron Corbin

Money in the Bank Qualifier


As is the standard with any multi-man match, this one included several near-falls and broken pins. Corbin got in quite a bit of offense but eventually got over-zealous and it cost him the match.

Bobby Roode took the victory with a Glorious DDT on No Way Jose. Jose is great, but this was the right choice, Roode’s main roster career is in desperate need of a boost. And a heel turn.

Winner: Bobby Roode


Kevin Owens Makes His Demands


A nearly hysterical Kevin Owens bombarded Kurt Angle with demands for a rematch against the IC Champ, Seth Rollins. When Angle refused, Owens pulled out his phone to tattle on the GM to Stephanie McMahon. 


Breezango vs. The B-Team


A short, but fun match, this was mainly to allow Axel and Dallas to show off their new identity. We also heard about Breezango’s upcoming live tweet session during the Royal Wedding – several times.

Breezango worked hard in their Louis Vuitton knock-offs, but they couldn’t overcome The B-Team. No shame; they are undefeated, after all.

Winner: The B-Team


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


This match was less than thrilling. Six-person tag matches are tough to pull off and these girls didn’t quite get it. Not that anything terrible happened, there were a couple of cool spots, but other than that it was lackluster. Hopefully, we get some singles competition from them in the near future.

Natalya captured the victory for her team by tapping Liv Morgan out with the Sharpshooter.

Winner: Sasha Banks, Ember Moon, and Natalya


The Deletors of Worlds vs. The Revival


After what felt like several minutes of pageantry (what else would you expect from the duo of Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt), the match was underway.

Hardy and Wyatt have been a force to be reckoned with since Wyatt’s dip in the lake of reincarnation and continued their domination of the tag scene when Matt Hardy pinned Scott Dawson.

Winner: The Deletors of Worlds


Sami Zayn Throws Shade


Sami Zayn danced to the ring to belittle Bobby Lashley. He shamed the audience for enjoying his recent loss to Lashley and even produced a doctor’s note declaring his recent vertigo diagnosis due to being lifted upside down in the delayed vertical suplex.

Zayn said that Bobby was obviously just jealous and brought Lashley’s sisters into the argument, saying that he had reached out to them to give a true depiction of his personality, which would happen live next week.


Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James vs. Bayley

Money in the Bank Qualifier


As expected, Alexa and Mickie ganged up on Bayley for the majority of the match. They may be besties, but Mickie didn’t forget that it was every woman for herself. At one point, Mickie attempted a roll-up on Bliss when she wasn’t expecting it. Then kicked her in the face to break a pin a few minutes later.

Bayley attempted to overcome the odds, but even with the inconsistent teamwork between Alexa and Mickie, they did enough damage that The Huggable One was defeated by Alexa Bliss.

Winner: Alexa Bliss


Roman Reigns Gets Dirty


Although bandaged and short of breath, Jinder Mahal was cleared to compete for his shot at entering the Money in the Bank ladder match. On his way to the ring, however, he was attacked by Roman Reigns – who speared him through a wall.

Sunil Singh pleaded with Angle to delay the match, but Angle said that it had to happen, he was just going to have to find a replacement for Jinder.


Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre vs. Braun Strowman and Finn Balor


The match started with Balor and Ziggler, but when Balor tried to tag in The Monster, Ziggler wanted out. The first to do so in a long time, Drew McIntyre specifically wanted to go one-on-one with Braun Strowman, but then seemed to change his mind when he stepped back out of the ring.

Balor and Strowman remained dominant until Ziggler and McIntyre bent the rules to beat Balor down together, taunting Strowman as they did it. This did not sit well with Braun, who cleaned house when he finally came back in. We thought this would be the end for Dolph and Drew, but Finn tagged in and was soon pinned by Ziggler.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre


Kurt Angle is on the Phone Again

Angle was shown on his phone with Stephanie McMahon, explaining the events of the evening and that he had the perfect replacement for Jinder in the triple threat qualifier. He was cut off before he could give his choice and told that Kevin Owens would be the one to take the spot.


Kevin Owens vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Elias

Money in the Bank Qualifier


Elias still can’t get a concert in. He was rudely interrupted by his opponents’ entrances before he could properly serenade the O2 crowd.

Owens and Elias had a brief alliance against Lashley, but it didn’t take long for them to turn on each other, taking the match back to even odds. Elias tried again to give the gift of song, but Kevin charged him and he had to abandon the plan.

Bobby Lashley had Elias pinned, but at the last second, Sami Zayn ran to the ring and helped his best friend gain entry into the Money in the Bank ladder match.

Winner: Kevin Owens
