Stone Cold Steve Austin shares his thoughts on the WWE RAW Reunion


Hulk Hogan shares his thoughts on the WWE RAW Reunion show as


Raw Reunion

Most of Raw was built around feel-good nostalgia hits, from the moment John Cena opened Raw to when Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and finally Stone Cold Steve Austin closed the show. Old stars interacted with new, including a multitude of 24/7 title changes that included Pat Patterson, Gerald Brisco, Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle, Alundra Blayze and the Million Dollar Man. Old stars interacted with new, like when RVD, The Hurricane, Sergeant Slaughter and Kurt Angle kept Sami Zayn from fleeing a match with Rey Mysterio, or when parts of DX and the nWo got Seth Rollins' back against AJ Styles and the newly rebranded "OC". The lone crossover that made a serious impact on WWE's week-to-week stories was Bray Wyatt's attack on Mick Foley. Using Foley's mandible claw, Wyatt made another impact in an appearance in which no words were spoken.

In between the fluff-heavy moments of Raw, a few intriguing matches were squeezed into the mix. Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns renewed old tensions in a solid showing for both, while the Viking Raiders took a step up in competition in defeating Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder. The Usos picked up a win over The Revival with their dad Rikishi in their corner (puzzlingly opposite D-Von Dudley in the opposite corner). Rey Mysterio took advantage of his assists to defeat Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins won by DQ when Gallows and Anderson got involved, and in the final match of the night, Braun Strowman tossed around an enhancement talent named Randy Rowe for kicks.

The five craziest SummerSlam moments

Behind-the-scenes contract issues, an iconic tour bus and a heated backstage argument are some of the most memorable SummerSlam moments.

SummerSlam 2002: A look back at a landscape-shifting moment in WWE history

We saw glimpses of opportunity for the women of SmackDown who deserve pushes. Liv Morgan lost to Charlotte Flair, but promised to come back with vengeance. Asuka and Kairi Sane teamed up for a chance at the women’s tag-team titles, but the IIconics devilishly refused to get back in the ring and were counted out. You can bet there will be a rematch with stipulations to ensure that doesn’t happen again. And after beating Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, Bayley offered partner Ember Moon a shot at her title come SummerSlam. Although there was speculation Sasha Banks would come back in time to challenge Bayley, Moon, one of the brightest, but most under-utilized, stars in the WWE deserves the opportunity.

Aleister Black, Apollo Crews and Randy Orton were among those who walked away from Tuesday night with wins. Black caught Cesaro with another roundhouse kick, just as he did two nights earlier at Extreme Rules, for the three-count. Crews rolled up Andrade in quick fashion, while Orton delivered a devastating RKO on the WWE champ, Kofi Kington, giving himself, Samoa Joe and Elias a victory against the tag-team champions, the New Day.

It wasn’t the best night for Shane McMahon. First, he opened up SmackDown Live with a town hall in which nearly every performer on the blue brand had a chance to speak their minds. The babyfaces aired their grievances, while the heels extolled McMahon’s ubiquitous presence the past few months. Love him or hate him, the segment ran a little long and accomplished little until Kevin Owens assaulted Shane, dropping him with a stunner. Later, in the main event, McMahon found himself on the receiving end of another stunner from KO, after McMahon interfered with Owens’ match against Dolph Ziggler, resulting in a no-contest. The antics aside, the idea the WWE is acknowledging the lack of spotlight from talented performers is a good sign. Let’s hope we see some of the all-but-forgotten faces find success in the near future.

Monday Night Raw

The highlight of tonight’s episode of Raw was, without question, the return of Bray Wyatt. In a masterfully designed segment, the lights in the arena went out after Finn Balor had taken a loss to Samoa Joe. Shortly after, Wyatt, donning the creepy mask he wore during his Firefly Fun House vignettes, appeared and delivered Sister Abigail to Balor. In other happenings, Cedric Alexander scored the unlikeliest of victories over Drew McIntyre, the trio of Ricochet and the Usos defeated the Revival and Robert Roode and the Club defeated the Lucha House Party in six-man tag action. During both six-man tag team matches, AJ Styles and Ricochet brawled with each other, continuing their rivalry. In addition to those matches, this week’s version of Miz TV, featuring Dolph Ziggler, ended with tension and physicality, potentially reigniting their rivalry of years past. The lone title change of the night saw R-Truth sneak into Drake Maverick’s hotel room and reclaim the 24/7 championship.

This year’s SummerSlam card began to take shape on Raw tonight. First, Natalya defeated Naomi, Alexa Bliss and Carmella in a very long four-person elimination match to become the number one contender to Becky Lynch’s Raw women’s championship. In the show’s main event, Seth Rollins won a battle royal by last eliminating Randy Orton to earn a Universal championship rematch against new champion Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.

Raimondi: 2019 is the right time for the new WWE 24/7 title ... if executed correctly

WWE introduced a new 24/7 title with the idea that it could be defended anywhere at any time. Utilizing the whole roster and all of the WWE's media platforms will be key if it's going to succeed as planned in 2019.

3-time WWE champion Mick Foley made an appearance on RAW tonight to debut a new championship. The title, dubbed the 24/7 Championship, is reminiscent of the Hardcore Championship of years past, a fond memory of the Attitude Era. The title can be defended anywhere, at any place, at any time. Following his announcement, Foley left the championship in the middle of the ring to be claimed by any superstar. After a brawl featuring a number of superstars, Titus O’Neil became the first-ever 24/7 champion. The reign didn't last long, however, as Robert Roode snuck up from behind him and rolled him up for the pinfall victory to become champion. After Roode evaded challengers backstage, R-Truth lured him into a trap and got the pinfall to take the title to SmackDownLive.
