WWE Raw results, recap, and ratings The Bloodline defeats Riddle and Also the Street Profits with power
Prior to SummerSlam, Roman Reigns and The Usos reached a remarkable main event victory.
Roman Reigns hadn’t competed on Monday night’s episode of Raw since September 2021. When he teamed up with The Usos to defeat The Street Profits then Riddle in six-man tag action, he made his return to the ring a successful one.
Prior to their Last Man Standing match at SummerSlam, Reigns used Paul Heyman as a spokesman to address Brock Lesnar, telling him that he would use the match on Saturday to put an end to their lengthy rivalry and ensure that he would go down in history alone by defeating Lesnar on Reigns’ 699th day as the world champion.
CBS Sports was with you the entire night, providing recaps and highlights of all the action from New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
The Bloodline is once again strong
An in-ring advertisement for The Bloodline began the programme. Before stating he was done speaking and handing the microphone to Paul Heyman, Reigns begged to be acknowledged. Heyman made a promo regarding Roman Reigns’ SummerSlam encounter with Brock Lesnar, claiming that after Reigns dominates Lesnar at SummerSlam, fans’ associations with their identities will be broken. Then Theory interjected, noting that everyone had forgotten the most crucial pre-event decision, namely his intention to redeem the winner’s Money in the Bank contract. Reigns advised Theory to accept the fact that Vince McMahon, his “daddy,” was no longer around and that the ring now belonged to him instead. As The Bloodline departed the ring, Theory struck Jey Uso with the Money in the Bank bag, but nothing more happened other than Reigns smiling and soothing Uso.
When Roman Reigns speared Riddle, The Bloodline defeated The Street Profits & Riddle via pinfall. Montez Ford was brutally exposed early in the chaotic tag match. Before using the spear to end the contest, Reigns was able to fend off an RKO. After the match, Seth Rollins entered the ring and attacked Riddle. Rollins attacked Riddle with the steel steps, then followed that up with a stomp on the ground and another after draped Riddle with the rings.
It’s easy to read too much into one show. It’s probable that doing so was prompted by the fact that this was the first episode of Raw with Paul “Triple H” Levesque serving as creative director following Vince McMahon’s retirement. There were throughlines throughout the night, which were segments that logically flowed and were related, starting with the opening promo and Theory’s involvement building up to a match with Drew McIntyre and the match growing into a tag match that ended due to Dolph Ziggler on the outside. The action then switched back to The Bloodline for the main event after AJ Styles joined forces with Ziggler and noticed what Ziggler was doing to Theory. The presentation had a sense of coherence and didn’t seem hastily put together. Even though the show still has its flaws, pursuing this idea further might be beneficial. Grade: A-
