The Superstar Shakeup was back to headline last night’s WWE Raw. We have seen many alterations to the roster due to that.
Also, a huge match was reserved in between a ‘friend-turned-foe’ scenario. Also, the second contenders for the tag team titles were also revealed. Check out the results from the show hosted by the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
Kurt Angle opened up the special edition of WWE Raw to kick things off for the Superstar Shakeup. While he promised the night to be full of surprises, Sunil Singh interrupted him to introduce to the latest member of the flagship show in the form of Jinder Mahal. The former WWE Champion cut a strong promo on trying to reach the level of Brock Lesnar upon which the GM made a title match.
Mahal was forced to defend his United States Championship in an impromptu match where Jeff Hardy showed up accepting the challenge. Sunil Singh tried to interrupt in the match, but Jeff shoved him off the ring for a nasty bump. Following this, Jeff hit a Twist of Fate and a Swanton Bomb to get the pinfall win and become the new US Champion.
In the next segment, we saw Bayley competing in a singles contest against Sasha Banks. It turned out to be a physical fight, as Banks slapped Bayley into the face. Bayley gave it back and talked trash to her former buddy. While going for the pinfall, the Riott Squad attacked both of them to get the contest disqualified. Ruby Riott hit the Riott Kick to end the segment.
Natalya was revealed as another recruit from the Smackdown Women’s division to WWE Raw. She had a backstage segment with Ronda Rousey. Nattie had a singles contest against Mandy Rose which turned out to be a vicious attack from The Absolution. Ronda ran out to make the save. In another women’s division match, Ember Moon defeated Mickie James with an Eclipse.
Heath Slater and Rhyno fell victim to the Authors of Pain, as the latter team hit the Last Chapter on them. Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy won their scheduled match against The Revival with a Twist of Fate to become the second team in the WWE Raw tag team championship match. In another tag team contest, The Bar was defeated by Breezango, the new member of the tag division from Smackdown.
Roman Reigns cut a promo on how he would make Brock Lesnar his victim at Greatest Royal Rumble event. It was encountered by Samoa Joe, as they had yet another verbal confrontation on WWE Raw. Dolph Ziggler made his way on the show with a partner that turned out to be Drew McIntyre. These two delivered a vicious onslaught on Titus Worldwide to make a bold statement.
In a segment, The Miz introduced Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn on WWE Raw who was hired by Stephanie McMahon. It was informed that Miz would be traded to Smackdown, tomorrow night. Also, a ten-man tag team match took place in the main event between featuring them.
The full lineup of the match stood Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, The Miz, and The Miztourage vs Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins, and Bobby Roode.
