The 09/24/18 edition of WWE Raw, out of the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, 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 #1322 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.





Baron Corbin Beefs with The Shield

 

Before any promos or in-ring action, we saw Stephanie McMahon and Triple H pull into the arena, immediately greeted by Baron Corbin. Stephanie said that Corbin hadn’t been doing as well as she had hoped, and told him to find some tag partners to challenge The Shield and “handle his business.”

But, of course, we can’t really get things going without an in-ring promo, so The Shield came out to give one. Reigns and Rollins said that they were the workhorses of WWE, and held the keys to the kingdom in the form of the Universal and Intercontinental Championships (while Ambrose looked suspiciously sulky in the background).

Rollins said they were more than ready to take on Baron Corbin and welcomed him to join them. Corbin came to the ramp and said that everyone in the locker room hated The Shield, so it wasn’t hard at all to find teammates. It appeared as though that team would consist of McIntyre, Ziggler, and Strowman, as they joined him on the stage.

The Dogs of War then got to work poisoning the mind of Dean Ambrose, doing their best to turn him against his brothers. According to Ziggler and McIntyre, Rollins and Reigns didn’t appreciate him, and he would go much further as a member of their squad instead.

A brawl nearly broke out, but Corbin stopped it, announcing that Ziggler and McIntyre had other business to attend to, so he would need to find a different set of partners for his match against The Shield.


 

Finn Bálor vs. Jinder Mahal

 

Accompanied by their respective mixed match challenge partners, Bayley and Alicia Fox, Bálor and Mahal wasted no time getting the action started.

Despite the significant size difference, Bálor held his own against The Maharaja, and probably would have won the match much sooner than he did, had Sunil Singh not interfered, grabbing Bálor’s leg as he went for the finish. Luckily, Bálor had Bayley in his corner, who returned the favor and grabbed Mahal before beating down both Alicia Fox and Sunil Singh, distracting Mahal long enough for Finn to take the victory.

Post-match, Mahal lost it on Singh, rag-dolling him around the ring while Alicia Fox encouraged him. Singh remained loyal, however, and joined Mahal and Fox in a chant before leaving the ring.

Winner: Finn Bálor


 

The Riott Squad vs. Natalya and The Bella Twins

 

This match started off strong, with Liv Morgan taking most of the heat from The Bella Twins. Unfortunately, Brie Bella accidentally kicked Morgan in the face and knocked her out, legitimately taking her out of the match.

Ruby Riott and Sarah Morgan got their revenge by defeating Natalya and The Bellas shortly after. This could have gone so much better, maybe next time.

Winner: The Riott Squad


 

Will Ambrose Give the Signal?

 

Backstage, Dolph Ziggler continued his attempts to convince Dean Ambrose to turn against Rollins and Reigns. He said McIntyre, Strowman, and himself would be watching The Shield match; all Ambrose needed to do was give them a sign and they would gladly take down his so-called brothers for him.

Later in the evening, Rollins approached Drew McIntyre and did some scheming of his own, telling him that Ziggler only used him as a springboard, and he deserved the spotlight for himself.

The subversion from both sides continued throughout the entire show, as The Shield were not set to take the ring until the main event of the evening.


 

Chad Gable vs. Konnor

 

Konnor cut a pre-match promo promising to destroy Chad Gable and evidently meant it because, after a short but brutal beatdown, Konnor pinned Gable for the win.

Winner: Konnor


 

Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre (c) vs. The Revival

Raw Tag Team Championship Match

 

Dash and Dawson were out for the championships and had a clear strategy: wear Ziggler down by keeping him in their corner, preventing him from tagging out. The Revival nearly became tag champs more than once with perfectly executed tag maneuvers, but between McIntyre breaking up the pins and Ziggler kicking out, they were unable to seal the deal.

The Revival got a little too close for comfort, so McIntyre and Ziggler hit their lethal Claymore/ZigZag combo on Dash, retaining their titles. If you haven’t already guessed as much, this match was awesome.

Winner: Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler


 

The Kevin Owens Show ft. Elias and Lio Rush

 

Elias came to the ring first to introduce Kevin Owens to his own talk show. After making a few of his usual complaints, Owens welcomed his guest for the evening, Lio Rush. Rush said that he wasn’t naive, he would be staying on the stage where he was safe from the double team most likely awaiting him in the ring. It was only after Bobby Lashley began his entrance that Lio Rush made his way down the ramp.


 

Bobby Lashley vs. Elias

 

Following that killer tag match, this one was honestly a little lackluster. Lashley and Elias were fairly evenly matched, each unable to bring the other down. Owens inadvertently caused a disqualification when he kneed Lashley while chasing down Lio Rush. Infuriated, Elias and Kevin Owens tried to punish Lio Rush, but Rush escaped once again with the help of Bobby Lashley.

Winner: Bobby Lashley (via disqualification)


 

Nia Jax vs. Alicia Fox

 

Nia Jax nearly put Fox away a few moments after the match began. Fortunately for Alicia, she had Alexa Bliss and Mickie James in her corner, who helped her hang in there a little longer. However, Jax had Ember Moon on her side to even the score, which was simply too much for Fox in the end.

Winner: Nia Jax


 

The Shield vs. Baron Corbin and AoP

 

Many fans guessed this correctly long before the segment began – Baron Corbin’s tag partners were none other than Akam and Rezar, The Authors of Pain. Although The Shield is a well-oiled machine, they appeared to have met their match in AoP, who had an answer for everything they could throw.

As promised, Ziggler, McIntyre, and Strowman sat in steel chairs on the stage, intently watching Ambrose’s every move. The Shield gained momentum after a minor distraction from The Dogs of War, Rollins going as far as to prepare to finish Akam with a curb stomp, but was pulled out of the ring by Corbin at the last second.

AoP furthered their chances at defeating The Shield by momentarily putting both Reigns and Ambrose out of commission, focusing their offense solely on Rollins. Ambrose eventually came back to the action, and looked as though he might take down all three opponents himself, but got help from Reigns and Rollins. Reigns won the match for The Shield with a spear to Baron Corbin, but celebrated only with Rollins, as Ambrose was laid out at ringside after carrying a solid portion of the match.

The Dogs of War anxiously awaited the signal from Ambrose, who may have considered it, but jumped in the ring with Rollins and Reigns, joining the celebration instead.

Winner: The Shield
