kevin owens vs cesaro to determine #1 contender to ic title
This was a great match, but the Miz and Maryse were ringside so you knew it was only a matter of time before he got involved. The Miz wound up costing Kevin Owens the match by attacking Cesaro and Owens was subsequently disqualified.
Sami Zayn then came out and cleaned house on everybody. He celebrated in the middle of the ring holding the Intercontinental Championship.
big cass & the new day vs the vaudevillians & the dudley boyz
Before the match, there was a promo with all of these performers. Big Cass was actually decent on the mic, that is not one of his strong-points. This was a great match with Big Cass pinning D-Von Dudley to end it.
amrbose asylum with guest stephanie mcmahon
Dean Ambrose was desperately trying to get Stephanie McMahon to admit that she was pissed off her brother was now co-running Monday Night Raw with her. Stephanie wouldn't bite but she canceled the Ambrose Asylum and said that the Highlight Reel with Chris Jericho was coming back. Jericho came down to the ring and beat the bajeezus out of Ambrose. He hit him over the head with his beloved potted-plant, Mitch.
battle royal to determine #1 contender to the united states championship
Baron Corbin was eliminated by Dolph Ziggler, but he then beatdown Ziggler. After the beatdown, Rusev immediately eliminated Ziggler, so the Corbin/Ziggler feud shall go on. It was looking like Zack Ryder was going to get the win, but Rusev turned the tables on him. Rusev being back in a title scene is a good thing, it seemed like the guy was being wasted.
Charlotte and Ric Flair came down to the ring and called out referee Charles Robinson. Robinson claimed that Natalya was screaming for the match to stop and it wasn't a screwjob at all. It clearly was, given the fact that Charles Robinson and Ric Flair have been pals since WCW, where Robinson was even referred to as "Little Naitch". Natalya comes out and takes out Charlotte. She then slaps the hell out of Ric Flair and puts him in the Sharpshooter. Natalya then puts on Ric Flair's Hall of Fame ring and his rolex watch. After the match, Flair and Charlotte are walking backstage complaining about what just happened. Stephanie McMahon confronts them and tells Charlotte that Natalya has a rematch at Extreme Rules and it is a submission match. Stephanie also states that Ric Flair is banned from ringside.
roman reigns and the usos vs aj styles, gallows and anderson
This was a very good match, AJ Styles, Gallows and Anderson got the win. However, what happened after the match was much more interesting. Gallows and Anderson are trying to get Styles to hit Reigns with a chair, but he refuses. The Usos then hit Styles with a chair and takeout Gallows and Anderson. AJ Styles then loses his mind and hits the Usos with a chair, which causes Roman Reigns to lose his mind and power-bomb Styles through the announcer's table. This whole storyline is bonkers because nobody knows who the babyface or the heel is. The only bad guys so far are Gallows and Anderson. At the very least it will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
