The 09/17/18 edition of WWE Raw, out of the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, just wrapped up. 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 #1321 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

Hell in a Cell Fallout


Roman Reigns made his entrance and wasted no time in calling out Brock Lesnar. Instead, he got Braun Strowman. Strowman said that if anyone was getting Lesnar, it was him. And once he defeated Lesnar, he would be coming back for Reigns.

General Manager Baron Corbin interrupted. He said that it was his job to come up with a solution, not theirs, and he already had one: both Braun and Roman will face Brock in a triple threat match for the Universal Championship in Saudi Arabia WWE Crown Jewel on November 2nd. Strowman expressed his disapproval by announcing that everyone – Reigns, Corbin, Lesnar, the audience – sucks.

Strowman started to leave, but Paul Heyman came out (with the door of the cell kicked down by Lesnar) and blocked his way. He said Strowman and Reigns conspired against Lesnar to steal the Universal Championship, which is why Lesnar returned at Hell in a Cell. He plans to reclaim the title in Saudi Arabia. Heyman had barely finished speaking when Strowman chased him away.

Corbin then announced that Reigns probably didn’t even need to worry about defending the title against Brock Lesnar or Braun Strowman, as he had a championship match later in the evening – against the GM himself.


Dean Ambrose vs. Drew McIntyre


Dean Ambrose got the early advantage by injuring the left knee of Drew McIntyre. McIntyre certainly dished out some punishment as well, but Ambrose seemed determined to claim retribution for losing to Ziggler and McIntyre at Hell in a Cell. Ambrose came close to winning the match more than once, but after almost losing via countout, hastily jumped back in the ring only to receive a massive Claymore, allowing McIntyre to take the victory.

Winner: Drew McIntyre


Chad Gable vs. Viktor


Chad Gable appears to be having a good time with his run as Bobby Roode’s tag team partner and, as always, we’re just happy to have a little more Gable in our lives. This week, he faced Viktor of The Ascension solo, as Roode and Konnor watched at ringside.

Gable emerged victorious after a short and sweet bout, but Konnor was not too happy about it, attacking both Roode and Gable as they celebrated in the ring.

Winner: Chad Gable


Intercontinental Championship Conspiracy


Earlier in the evening, Baron Corbin approached Ziggler backstage and proposed that he invoke his rematch clause for the Intercontinental Championship tonight, as Seth Rollins was far from his best, and would be easy prey. Ziggler initially didn’t seem interested, but quickly changed his mind and agreed that now was the best time.

Backstage, Seth Rollins was asked his thoughts on the upcoming match (while being informed of it for the first time as he had just arrived at the arena). He was obviously annoyed, particularly at the added stipulation that if he was unable to defend his title, Corbin would strip him of it anyway. Despite his displeasure in the match, he said that he would make Ziggler regret it. It’s still Monday Night Rollins, after all.


The Undertaker’s Reply


After making his grand entrance (which never gets old), The Undertaker grabbed a mic to give his reply to Triple H’s less than complimentary promo about him last week. Taker said that Triple H was clearly delusional, as he was the weak and broken one, Taker is just as sharp as ever. Furthermore, Taker had on problem with The Game having his best friend, Shawn Michaels, at ringside, because he would be bringing his brother Kane along for the ride. He ended Michaels’ career and would go even further with The Game, taking away both his career and his soul.


Bayley vs. Dana Brooke


With her best friend, Sasha Banks, at ringside, Bayley took on Dana Brooke, who came out solo as she recently ended her involvement with Titus Worldwide. Having that extra boost of moral support worked in Bayley’s favor and she defeated Dana in a quick match.

Winner: Bayley


AoP vs. ???


Akam and Rezar defeated a pair of local talent in an absolute squash. Hopefully, having Drake Maverick at their side helps them move up in the tag division, as they have unfortunately struggled since their main roster debut.

Winner: AoP


Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler

Intercontinental Championship Rematch


As both Rollins and Ziggler fell from the cell and through a table last night, neither was at 100%. The intense match from Hell in a Cell didn’t hinder their disdain for each other at all, however, and neither man allowed the other to keep the upper hand for very long.

This match was fun to watch and really could have gone either way, but it was Seth Rollins who got the pin after hitting a Curbstomp on Ziggler, retaining his championship. We can imagine Ziggler won’t be happy with the bad advice given to him by the acting general manager.

Winner: Seth Rollins


Rousey’s Open Challenge


Ronda Rousey approached Nikki, Brie, and Natalya backstage and asked how she should go about issuing an open challenge for her Women’s Championship. Natalya said there were really no rules, as long as she was prepared for whoever might show up.

Turns out, Natalya had herself in mind when she said this, but The Riott Squad got to her before she could officially accept, dragging her unconscious body to the ramp before coming to the ring. Ruby Riott intended to challenge Rousey alone, but when Rousey attacked her the moment she stepped on the apron, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan jumped in to help. Brie and Nikki Bella weren’t going to sit back and watch their friend get outnumbered and ran to the ring, chasing all three members of The Riott Squad away.


Elias vs. Bobby Lashley


Elias played a blues riff and insulted the Dallas crowd by hitting them where it hurts – right in the football fandom. Lio Rush came to throw some disses at Elias, but The Drifter shut him down by demanding to know whose child he was and at that point, there was really nothing Rush could say to come out on top.

Lio Rush sat at the announce table and declared that he was Bobby Lashley’s new manager, then began insulting Kevin Owens. Meanwhile, Lashley and Elias went after each other in the ring; that is until Kevin Owens’ music hit and The Prizefighter came straight for Rush. Luckily for Rush, he used his sweet ninja skills to escape both Elias and Owens’ attacks, running straight into Lashley’s arms, who lifted him into the ring, protecting him from the bad guys.

Winner: Elias (via disqualification) 


Mickie James and Alicia Fox vs. Ember Moon and Nia Jax


Alexa Bliss was prepared to stand by her friends as they went head-to-head with Ember Moon and a mystery partner. She began to doubt whether standing at ringside was really a good idea, however, when Moon welcomed her partner, Nia Jax, to join her.

By cutting the ring in half (and cheating just a little), Mickie James and Alicia Fox were able to wear down Moon while keeping her tag partner at bay. Jax eventually came in with the hot tag and effortlessly tossed Fox around the ring. Jax had her beaten, but James broke up the pin. Ember took care of Mickie while Nia went for a second pin, this time winning the match for her team.

Winner: Nia Jax and Ember Moon


Roman Reigns (c) vs. Baron Corbin

Universal Championship Match


Intent on adding insult to injury after Brock Lesnar’s attack on Reigns last night, Corbin took control of this match the second the bell rang. Corbin had the advantage, as he didn’t wrestle at all at Hell in a Cell, let alone against Braun Strowman inside of the cell structure itself.

Reigns finally started to pick up steam, but Corbin stopped him in his tracks by bashing him in the face with a steel chair, causing a disqualification. Being acting GM, Corbin simply restarted the match with a no disqualification stipulation. Before either of them could get very far, Braun Strowman came to the ring, leading to Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre to come to his aid, which obviously meant Rollins and Ambrose had to come down to prevent any funny business. In the midst of the brawl, Roman Reigns defeated Baron Corbin with a spear.

Winner: Roman Reigns
