Also, a new rivalry started featuring the franchise player of the company. Check out the full results from WWE hosted by the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
WWE Raw kicked off with Kurt Angle coming out to the ring to hype up the show. He was soon interrupted by Jason Jordan who wanted an Intercontinental Championship opportunity against Roman Reigns even with an injured knee. Samoa Joe also showed up pledging the same. Jason threw Reigns with a suplex in a heated confrontation setting up a contest.
Kurt Angle’s son took Roman Reigns to the limit in the match. But the hurt knee cost him the contest as the Big Dog connected with the superman punch following with a spear for the win. Samoa Joe appeared to digest a suplex from Jordan. Reigns hit him with another superman punch to put him away from the ring.
At the backstage, Jason Jordan looked furious for coming up short and demanded another rematch from his father. Angle denied saying that he can’t just make a match instead he should earn it. Samoa Joe appeared out of nowhere and hit Jordan with a suplex in the room to seek redemption.

Drew Gulak emerged as the other one for number one contender’s match for Cruiserweight championship. Asuka squashed Alicia Fox in a singles match after which Paige decimated Fox with an attack.
In the main event of WWE Raw, The Bar defended the tag team championships against The Shield. Sheamus was relentless to make the match disqualified after which it was started in a no-DQ environment.
