We’ve got the WWE Raw results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #1379 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Kairi Sane vs. Becky Lynch
Before Kairi Sane’s scheduled match against Becky Lynch, Kairi and her fellow Women’s Tag Team Champion, Asuka, were joined by their old manager Paige as they walked to the ring.
Paige built up her clients on the microphone (while patting herself on the back for being behind the inception of their team) before Asuka snatched the mic, giving it to Kairi. The microphone ended up on the ground and when Paige turned to pick it up, she was met with a face full of Asuka’s green mist.
Paige frantically wiped at her eyes as officials attempted to tend to her, all while Kairi and Asuka closed in on their former manager. Before they could do any further damage, however, they were thwarted by Becky Lynch, who ran down and threw Asuka over the barricade before turning her attention to her opponent.
Becky Lynch and Kairi Sane lept into the ring mid-brawl, hot-starting the match before going to a commercial break.
Lynch got the upper hand by raining strikes down on Sane, who rolled out of the ring to regroup, connecting with a kick on her way back in. This gave Sane the window she needed to recover and she beat the champ down in the corner relentlessly to the point that the referee was forced to break them up.
Becky responded with arm drags before attempting an armbar that Kairi escaped. Lynch fought to keep control with a kick to the face, but Kairi came back with a vengeance, throwing Becky into the steel steps.
Back from commercial, Kairi had Becky in a surfboard submission, and though Becky escaped, it wasn’t long before Kairi’s knee came smashing into her face. Becky began to gain momentum with strikes and a Bexploder, but Kairi trapped her in a submission of her own with a modified Boston crab.
Lynch threw Kairi off but did not put a stop to her determination and Kairi hit a DDT, ascending the ropes for her Insane Elbow, but Becky reached her before she could make the leap. Becky threw Kairi down, following her with a leg drop. At this point, Asuka attempted an interference to help her friend, but Becky stopped her with a forearm.
It was enough for Kairi to get a near fall with a backfist, but when Becky responded with her Dis-Arm-Her, Kairi surrendered.
Winner: Becky Lynch
R-Truth vs. Buddy Murphy
Before the match, Charly Caruso met R-Truth in the middle of the ring for an interview regarding the 24/7 Championship. Specifically, his loss to Sunil Singh last week on Raw. He said that he was still adjusting to being without his sidekick Carmella, but with his new glasses, he would be able to keep a better eye on the prize.
In the middle of R-Truth’s speech, Buddy Murphy came to the ring for their match. He said that he didn’t mind that Truth was looking past him to the 24/7 Title, because after their match, he would never forget Australia’s Finest.
R-Truth went into a test of strength against Buddy Murphy as soon as the match began, which Murphy won, forcing Truth into the corner, but before long, Truth had taken control, leveling Murphy with a series of strikes.
Truth was steadily picking up steam, and had Buddy Murphy laid out on the mat, when the 24/7 Championship mob ran through the ringside area, distracting R-Truth. He hopped out of the ring to join the gaggle, and though he resisted from running after them when they left ringside, the distraction was enough to allow Buddy Murphy to take the win with a knee strike.
Winner: Buddy Murphy
The Authors of Pain Are Coming for the Raw Tag Teams
Akam and Rezar were shown in their dark room yet again, cutting another epic, threatening promo about what they planned to do to the Raw Tag Team Division. These segments are produced extremely well, and making The Authors of Pain look like monsters; hopefully, they capitalize on the mystique they have built soon and put these two in the ring.
The Street Profits’ Party Continues
In their Raw debut after-party, Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford made their high-energy entrance, dancing through the crowd before coming to the ring to have a hug and a short celebration, reminding the Raw Tag Division that they want the smoke.
Drew McIntyre vs. Ricochet
In an effort to avoid the events of their last encounter, Ricochet did not wait for the bell, or even for Drew to reach the ring, to start the match, diving onto the Scottish Psychopath as he entered the ringside area.
Ricochet held dominion as long as he could, but Drew McIntyre’s power advantage eventually proved too much for Ricochet to overcome, and he flung Ricochet around the ring and out with ease.
After taking Ricochet out of commission for the time being with a leg drop, of all things, Drew McIntyre took the opportunity to taunt Hulk Hogan, who was at ringside to cheer Ricochet on. From here, Drew held control of the match, swatting down any and every attempt Ricochet made to gain momentum, throwing him into the turnbuckle with a Razor’s Edge.
Back from commercial, Drew McIntyre was still dominating the One and Only, holding him down in the middle of the ring. Ricochet finally came back with a hurricanrana, following that with an enziguri. Unwilling to yield, Drew McIntyre threw an Alabama slam, a headbutt, and a clothesline in quick succession.
Ricochet dodged a Claymore, climbing the ropes for a 450, which McIntyre avoided, and before Ricochet could launch another attack, he was flattened with an RKO outta nowhere from Randy Orton, who joined McIntyre in a bragging session before leaving the ring.
Winner: Ricochet (via disqualification)

The Viking Raiders vs. Rizzo and Bryant
The Chicago Cubs, Rizzo and Bryant, excitedly made their entrance in full baseball uniforms, apparently thinking that they might stand a chance against Erik and Ivar.
They were, of course, mistaken, and The Viking Raiders ripped them apart limb from limb, Erik throwing both men in a double powerslam before working together with Ivar to connect with their Viking Experience finisher and take the win.
Winner: The Viking Raiders
Andrade (w/Zelina Vega) vs. Sin Cara (w/Carolina)
To offset the coming interference from Zelina Vega, Sin Cara brought along a friend of his own, a fellow masked Superstar named Carolina.
With the boost of confidence that came with knowing he had back-up in case of an attack, Sin Cara took the upper hand at the start of the match with a headscissors, but when he climbed the ropes to follow up, Andrade sent him flying to the floor.
Andrade followed with a backbreaker, hitting a running knee strike when Sin Cara broke free of the pin. When this still wasn’t enough, Andrade went for a second, but Sin Cara saw it coming and dodged the attack, diving onto him to the floor from the top rope.
Seeing that her partner was losing control of the match, Zelina Vega distracted the referee. And as planned, Carolina attacked Zelina, preventing any further interference, but it was too late. Sin Cara allowed his attention to drift toward Carolina, giving Andrade the opportunity to take the win with a roll-up.
Charlotte Flair and Natalya vs. The IIconics
Two legacies of the Women’s Division, Charlotte Flair and Natalya teamed up to take on former Women’s Tag Team Champions, The IIconics. Peyton Royce kicked off the action for her team against Charlotte, who went for the quick victory with a Figure Four, but Peyton escaped.
Realizing that she would have to wear her opponent down if she wanted the win, Charlotte fired off a barrage of chops, slamming Peyton to the mat before tagging her partner into the match.
Natalya came in helped Charlotte with a double suplex on Royce, but it wasn’t enough to put her away. Peyton took over with a slam and gave the ring to Billie Kay, who helped Peyton to wear Natalya down with double-team offense in their corner.
Charlotte saved Natalya from a pin, throwing Peyton from the apron while she was at it, which allowed Natalya to sink in a Sharpshooter on Billie and take the win.
Winner: Natalya and Charlotte Flair
Seth Rollins vs. Erick Rowan
Falls Count Anywhere Match
Knowing that the odds were probably stacked against him, Rollins sprang at Rowan at the start of the match. But this did not have the intended effect, as Rowan responded with an Irish whip, throwing Rollins out of the ring and into the barricade, finally gaining a near fall with a big boot.
The two brawled through the crowd, up the stairs, and into the concourse, where Rowan smashed Rollins with a barricade divider before throwing him into the WWE Shop display. But that wasn’t enough for Rowan, who put Rollins through the table that once held the t-shirts.
Back from commercial, Rollins and Rowan were back in the ring, where Rollins did his best to overcome the Rowan’s size advantage, throwing Rowan out of the ring and into multiple sets of steel steps.
Rowan was not down for long, however, and after rag dolling Seth Rollins around the ringside area, lifted an unconscious Kingslayer on his shoulders and carried him up the ramp. Rollins regained consciousness, fighting free of Rowan’s hold, but Rowan was prepared, planting him into the ground before clearing the announce table.
Rowan lifted Rollins to put him through the table, but Rollins put his feet down, standing on top of it and, after fighting Rowan back, dove from the announcer’s perch onto his opponent.
Rollins followed Rowan into the backstage area, beating him down with a steel chair as he went. Rowan eventually caught one of the chair strikes, using Rollins’ momentum against him. The two used every piece of equipment available to destroy each other until Rollins hit a Curb Stomp into a ladder.
Instead of pinning Rowan, however, Rollins demanded an arena worker to turn on a forklift, trapping Rowan beneath it. Rollins stood on top of the lift, winning the match when Rowan was unable to break free.
Winner: Seth Rollins
Humberto Carrillo vs. AJ Styles
Earlier in the evening, AJ Styles approached Raw newcomer, Humberto Carrillo, who fought last week against Universal Champion Seth Rollins in his Raw debut. Styles said that if Humberto really wanted to prove himself, he had chosen the wrong champion.
The real top dog of Raw was none other than the mother lovin’ United States Champion, obviously. Humberto Carrillo gladly accepted the challenge and the match was set.
Anxious to achieve a more favorable outcome than he did against Seth Rollins, Humberto Carrillo launched himself at Styles with the opening bell, catching the champ off guard and gaining the early advantage with an arm drag.
AJ Styles made a comeback with some chops, but Humberto was quick to respond, connected with chops of his own before flatting Styles with a headbutt, gaining a near fall. After Humberto scored another near fall, Styles redoubled his efforts, throwing Carrillo in a vicious tornado DDT at ringside.
Back from commercial, AJ Styles was attempting to keep Carrillo grounded, preventing his signature aerial offense, but Humberto broke free, leveling Styles with a quick series of strikes. Styles wasn’t down for long, but after a missile dropkick and an Aztec press from Humberto, Styles stayed down a little longer and Carrillo gained a near fall.
Styles caught Humberto in the midst of his next attack with an inverted DDT, but it wasn’t enough to keep Carrillo down. Carrillo came back at Styles with one of his beautiful moonsaults. When this didn’t keep Styles down, he went for a second but was hit with a vicious shoulder strike from Styles, sending him flying to the mat where he was instantly trapped with a calf crusher and was forced to tap out.
AJ Styles went to leave but came back in to shake Carrillo’s hand. Humberto held his hand out as well, but Styles changed his mind, pulling his away. Carrillo wasn’t going to take this disrespect lying down and punched Styles in the face.
But Humberto was outnumbered with Styles’ cohorts at ringside and after falling victim to a Styles Clash, Humberto was surrounded by all three members of The OC. Luckily, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins were on hand to make the save, chasing Styles, Gallows, and Anderson from the ring before helping Humberto to his feet.
Winner: AJ Styles
King’s Court: Rusev and Lana
Jerry “The King” Lawler invited Rusev and Lana to join him in the ring for King’s Court in hopes of settling their differences. Rusev showed Lana that he still wore his wedding band because he still loved her, but Lana was not so kind.
Lana said that their entire marriage was about what Rusev wanted, never what she wanted. And what he wanted was babies, which she wasn’t interested in because it interfered with her career as a model and fashion icon.
But that wasn’t even the real problem, Bobby had told Lana that Rusev cheated on her. Rusev vehemently disputed this claim, saying that Bobby Lashley was nothing but a liar. At this, Lashley made his way to the ring, which quickly proved to be a mistake on his part, as he was brutally beaten by Rusev.
The Bulgarian Brute absolutely demolished Lashley, who attempted to get back at Rusev, but nothing worked. Rusev took off his wedding band, shoved it into Bobby’s mouth, and proceeded to punch him in the face repeatedly.
Lana tried to fight Rusev off with a kendo stick, but it did not affect Rusev whatsoever. Rusev let Lana distract him, though, turning to profess his love to his wife, and Bobby Lashley low-blowed him while his back was turned. Lashley laid in a few strikes of his own before making out with Lana over Rusev’s body to close the show.
