Welcome back to exclusive coverage of WWE Raw! It’s the go-home show ladies and gentlemen, and we are one week removed from the brutal beatdown that the SHIELD received from half the roster, led by Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre, & Dolph Ziggler. We have only two confirmed matches going into Hell In A Cell on Sunday, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for match announcements.
Instead of matches though, we have been seeing a lot of hype for the upcoming match between The Undertaker and Triple H, and Mick Foley joins the fray tonight to promote the show, and likely talk about his history with the Hell In A Cell matchup.
Refresh the page throughout the night for continued coverage, and stay tuned as coverage starts at 8/7C!
IN RING SEGMENT
We start the show off by seeing the NEW Raw tag team champions, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre along with the number 1 contender, BRAUN STROWMAN. They are followed by the reinforcements with half the Raw locker room surrounding the ring. Dolph says “we told you so” and says that one thing happened to the Shield last week, and that is beat them down. Drew says to not just take their word for it, and he shows last week’s footage of the brutal beatdown that the Shield endured. Braun says that Roman has his Hounds of Justice, but he has his DOGS OF WAR.
He says that there is strength in numbers. Ziggler talks to the men around the ring and says they stood up to the Shield and stood up for themselves. McIntyre says that the balance of power has shifted, and they will continue the carnage when they dismantle and dismember the B-Team in their rematch. Braun says this Sunday he’ll be victorious and become the new Universal Champion.
Out comes Rollins, Reigns, & Ambrose but they have equalizers! They have what looks like axe handles and they take out the Raw locker room while Ziggler, McIntyre, & Strowman retreat up the ramp.
Backstage we see a video of the Bella Twins going into their locker room and it is vandalized by the Riott Squad.
Security and Baron Corbin are trying to calm down the Shield, and Corbin tells them to drop the weapons. He says he wants them competing, not destroying everything in their path. But then he says that they have to vacate the premises or he will strip Roman & Seth from their titles.
NIKKI BELLA vs. RUBY RIOTT
Ruby Riott didn’t even get an entrance, which is a shame. She starts the match with a headlock takeover to Nikki and then locks in a headlock, but Nikki breaks out and she gets a headlock take down of her own. Nikki Bella drives her shoulder into Ruby Riott several times and then spears her before mounting her and delivering right hands.
Riott reverses and gets a headlock again on Bella. She hits Bella with a big knee and then bounces off the ropes and Nikki hits a spine buster. Riott gets up and Bella hits Ruby with a couple of clotheslines before hitting a dropkick. Bella jumps to the second rope and jumps off to hit a kick right to the face of Ruby Riott.
Riott comes back and she floors Nikki, but Nikki gets up and very slowly puts her in position for the Rack Attack 2.0. Liv Morgan tries to interfere, but Brie grabs Liv by the leg allowing Nikki to deliver the Rack Attack 2.0 on Ruby and pick up the victory.
