It’s the first week of the new Kevin Owens show, and one would imagine that all sorts of people were looking for revenge against the man who basically had the Universal Title handed to him by Triple H last week! We’ve got all the results of this week’s Raw right here!
Live from Kansas City, Missouri
Kevin Owens’ title celebration kicked off the show, as Owens mocked the crowd for making his title win about them, and saying he already knew he deserved it, he didn’t need their validation. Seth Rollins interrupted and got in Stephanie and Mick’s faces, saying they had to be involved somehow in Triple H’s interference in the title match, and threatened to burn down the entire New Era, attacking Owens. Stephanie attempted to suspend him indefinitely, but Mick declared that Raw wasn’t going to be run that way, and instead gave Seth a match for the Universal Title against KO at Clash of Champions.
Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho attempted to get Foley’s decision reversed, but instead ended up in matches with Sami Zayn and Seth Rollins, respectively. So much for that Owens-Zayn feud being over forever.
– Bayley d. Charlotte (pinfall, Bayley-To-Belly Suplex)
– Bo Dallas d. Kyle Roberts (pinfall, spinning neckbreaker)
Bo is back to being inspirational, but more aggressive. Also, he rhymes sentences with “Bo”.
– Seth Rollins d. Chris Jericho (pinfall, Pedigree)
– Sheamus d. Cesaro to go up 3-0 in their Best of Seven Series (pinfall, Brogue Kick)
– The Shining Stars d. Enzo & Cass (Epico pinned Enzo, rollup)
– Nia Jax d. Ann Esposito (pinfall, falling body slam)
As part of their new jobs as retirement specialists, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows introduced “The Old Day”, three people dressed as old men in New Day merchandise. This went on for a while. The New Day interrupted, and invoked Timecop rules, deciding to beat up “the bald guys” instead, but Gallows and Anderson fled. New Day celebrated, but Old Day attempted to attack them, and were destroyed as a result.
– Darren Young d. Jinder Mahal (pinfall, Gut Check)
Titus O’Neil was on commentary. Eventually, he came to ringside, but didn’t actually do anything, then got attacked by Young after the match.
– Braun Strowman d. Sin Cara via countout
Sasha Banks came out and spoke eloquently and tearfully about the Women’s Revolution, seemingly building to some sort of announcement about her medical condition, which was supposedly bad news. She was interrupted by Dana Brooke, who claimed she would use Sasha’s apparently broken body to make a statement. Sasha turned the tables, hitting Brooke with the Banks Statement, and said that the only bad news was for Charlotte, as she was coming for the title at Clash of Champions.
– Kevin Owens d. Sami Zayn (pinfall, powerbomb)
Owens took advantage of Zayn’s continuing ankle injury to get the win. After the match, Roman Reigns appeared, to the delight of very few, and got into Owens’ face. Mick Foley came out and made a match between Reigns and Owens for next Raw, and if Reigns wins, he gets added to the Universal Title match at Clash of Champions. Chris Jericho tried to attack a distracted Reigns, but got hit with a Spear instead.
Hey, didn’t Raw used to have a United States Champion?
