A complete shocker was waiting to kick things off on WWE Raw. If relinquishment of the universal title was not enough then a sudden heel-turn turned WWE Raw upside down. Also, major storyline angles moved forward to the Crown Jewel and Evolution event. Here are the full results from the show hosted by the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island.
Roman Reigns’ music hit the arena to kick off WWE Raw. He was not in his usual attire and came out with red eyes. Addressing the elephant in the room, Reigns declared that he is battling leukemia since 22. It’s now back from remission. So he will have to relinquish the Universal Championship. A long speech follows before his Shield brothers join him on the ramp.
The opening contest of the night featured Finn Balor vs. Bobby Lashley. The latter one took control of the match with a giant clothesline. But Finn came back into the contest sending Lashley outside with a dropkick. Balor followed up with a big boot and a Running Forearm. Lashley tried to slam him but Balor rolled him up for the win.
