WWE Monday Night Raw: Results and highlights

The opening segment led into a match between Morrison and Richochet to get the card underway with Miz at ringside

John Morrison def. Ricochet by count-out

Ricochet and “Johnny Drip Drip” ran back their high-risk clash from last week with a new array of acrobatics but it would be the ringside antics of The Miz’s that decided the matchup. After Morrison thwarted the high-flyer’s attack and sent him flying into the barricade, he benefited from a great assist from the wheelchair-bound Miz to ensure a count-out victory.

Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Eva Marie & Doudrop def. Nikki A.S.H., Alexa Bliss, Asuka & Naomi

With the wounds still fresh from WWE Money in the Bank qualifying heartbreak, Eva Marie, Doudrop, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax formed an unlikely alliance against Asuka, Naomi, Nikki A.S.H. and Alexa Bliss. The “Almost Superhero” once again fought valiantly, but a Samoan Drop from The Irresistible Force sealed the win and allowed Eva Marie to gloat in the beauty of The Eva-lution.

Mustafa Ali def. Mansoor

Mustafa Ali’s lessons for his new protégé Mansoor headed into the ring as the two combatants went toe-to-toe. Mansoor stepped in to help when his opponent’s leg got stuck in the ropes helping the referee free Ali, who used the moment to hit the most devastating move in all of sports entertainment, the fabled surprise roll-up, for the win.

Drew McIntyre def. Jinder Mahal by disqualification

Jinder Mahal has set his sights on taking down former friend and stablemate Drew McIntyre and demonstrated that he would do so by any means necessary. After overcoming a vicious slam into the announce table, The Scottish Warrior was ready to deliver a Claymore to Mahal until his henchmen Veer & Shanky intervened on his behalf to spark a disqualification. McIntyre left with the win, but Mahal and his muscle left with a message delivered.

Lucha House Party def. MACE & T-BAR

MACE & T-BAR have set out on a mission to subjugate Raw’s tag team division in recent weeks and put on a display of the destruction they can bring in a showdown with Lucha House Party. However, after some crushing blows from the massive duo, Lince Dorado came crashing in from the sky with a hurricanrana to T-BAR that pulled off the stunning win.

Riddle def. AJ Styles

Riddle entered the match with a noticeable injury but refused to turn down an opportunity to prove himself against AJ Styles even after Omos’ earlier ladder push. The Original Bro turned to some “Karate Kid” inspiration to try and overcome his hobbled ankle, but unrelenting punishment from The Phenomenal One appeared ready to seal Riddle’s fate. A timely appearance from The Viking Raiders distracted the Raw Tag Team Champions and allowed Riddle to shock his opponent with a roll-up win.

Jaxson Ryker & R-Truth def. Cedric Alexander & Elias

The tag team match between Jaxson Ryker & R-Truth and Cedric Alexander & Elias was derailed by 24/7 Champion Akira Tozawa’s run to the ring that stole Truth’s attention. Ryker valiantly battled to overcome the odds and took full advantage of the first opening. Still feeling the effects of last week’s Strap Match clash, Elias chose to walk away from his partner and left Ryker to crush his way to a victory.

Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods def. Bobby Lashley & MVP

The New Day andswered the challenge of WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and his mentor MVP in the Raw main event. Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods took to the sky early to go on the offensive. After the former WWE Champion took out The All Mighty, Kingston reversed an attack to hit a Trouble in Paradise on MVP for the win.
