The Results


  • Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, and Randy Orton def. The Wyatt Family via Pinfall

*Match of the Night*

A great tag team match to kick off Raw with. Reigns and Bray Wyatt have been on fire lately. And Reigns has shown a drastic improvement on his ring work. The match was fast paced from beginning to end, and delivered enough action to leave fans wanting more from Reigns and Wyatt. Grade – B+

  • Sheamus def. Neville via Pinfall

The match did not last long before Wade Barrett cost Neville the win. And to be honest, I’m not sure why Barrett has turned his attention towards Neville instead of against his former partner Stardust. Grade – C-

  • Natalya def. Paige via Submission

A great match between the two, and a reminder that Natalya has a ridiculous amount of talent in the ring. Natalya and Paige put on an incredible performance for the time dedicated to them. I’d like to see more of this feud in the future. Grade – B+

  • Kevin Owens def. Sin Cara via Pinfall

The Ryback promo before this match was too intense for my cable box to handle. It immediately crashed afterwards and I wasn’t able to fix it in time to watch this match in its entirety. So I can’t give this match a proper rating considering that I missed the majority of it.

  • The Dudley Boyz def. Seth Rollins and Kane via DQ

While the match itself was decent, it only served as fuel for Kane vs Rollins in the end. And that distracted more from the match than it helped it. Grade – C-

  • Team Bad def. Team Bella via Submission

Fans love Sasha Banks. And the Boston crowd was not shy about showing their appreciation for her. The match pushed Team Bad and Team Bella’s feud along, and gave Naomi, Tamina, and Alicia Fox a little time to shine in the ring. Grade – B+

  • John Cena def. Big E via Pinfall

John Cena continued his feud with The New Day, which confirms that his upcoming break from the company after Hell in a Cell will involve the stable finally scoring a win over him for the US title. But as far as the match goes, very little time was actually dedicated to it before Cena eventually scored the win. But in the end, the segment shined the most after the match. Big E held his own against Cena and even dominated him at one point, but the image of New Day standing tall in the ring with bodies laid out around them was the highlight of the segment. A great image to end Raw with. Grade- B+

Worst Moments


  • Anything involving the corporate Kane storyline
  • Summer Rae segment with Rusev

This episode of Monday Night Raw delivered enough entertainment to make the three hour show pass by with ease, but it lacked a little excitement in the ring. The matches and segments managed to avoid being awful, but were kind of forgettable. To be straight forward, the episode continued the bland vibe from the MSG event and was a little weaker than the previous episodes we were treated to within the last few weeks. Hopefully, the show can manage to get back on track. Raw had a decent streak going, and it would be a shame if the show slowly began to sink back in to being mediocre. They can’t all be winners, I just hope this episode isn’t a sign that the show is headed back in to a losing streak.
