WWE Raw results, summary, ratings: despite two title matches, this show stank of Milwaukee

One of the least fun and uneventful episodes of Raw in a long time took place on Monday night in Milwaukee, where although two titles were played in the program, one could not help wondering why the WWE reserve it was so boring and boring despite the potential the list provides The intercontinental championship was defended in an open challenge format that provided the opportunity for an amazing challenger; instead, we have the man who faced Rollins more frequently in the last six months.

There was a key development in the women's division, but even that came with a bitter note since the segment that he led was an absolute disaster. In general, this was one of the worst editions of Raw that WWE has made since WrestleMania 34, and that's something because there have been a series of errors, including last week.

Let's take a look at what happened, and everything that went wrong, on Raw.

Welcome to the Baron Corbin Show

Raw started with Corbin, the interim general manager, in the ring with Bobby Lashley (now going through "The Almighty", dressed in a leather vest with glasses) and Drew McIntyre. Corbin claimed that he would soon get the permanent role and remember who allied with him in his battle to the top. He then welcomed Braun Strowman, live via satellite from Birmingham, Alabama, who showed a dreadful elbow and announced that he would be on the shelf for "a few weeks." Strowman guaranteed that he would go back 100 percent and get everyone to pay for last week's attack. Corbin then announced that the match was the same for TLC, and noted that Strowman would have to resign if he can not fight, which makes Corbin a permanent GM.

Bobby Lashley def. Elias through pinfall (No Disqualification): Elias interrupted the opening segment to say that Corbin was a terrible general manager and mocked Lashley before his game. Elias looked to get 1-2-3 after an elbow fell off the top rope, but Lio Rush pulled the referee out of the ring, which led to a disqualification. Corbin restarted the match under any DQ rule. Elias grabbed his guitar but was attacked immediately by the three men; They punched him with a chair and hit him with a light blow on the steel steps. Lashley then ran around the ring and threw Elias in homage to Strowman before rolling it to the ring and holding Elias with one knee.

Behind the scenes in a selfie promo, Balor said he had made the decision that he had no choice but to face Corbin and take control of his career. Balor and Corbin were reserved for the main event, despite being a match that we have seen dozens of times recently, and that also went off the rails.

Drew McIntyre & Baron Corbin def. Finn Balor through pinfall: After dominating most of the long game, Balor seemed to have beaten Corbin, but Corbin avoided a knockout, took a microphone and suddenly announced that it was now a handicap match. He left McIntyre, who recovered quickly after Balor received him with a cap with thread. Moments later, McIntyre pulled Balor out of the ring and hit him with the Claymore for the win. Lashley's music hit after the match, and he hit him with the cutter Yokosuka. Corbin then hit Balor with End of Days, and McIntyre added another Claymore.

The crowd did not even boo; he just stood there surprised by the ridiculousness of the reservation. It makes sense that Corbin is abusing his authority and destroying faces with the thought that Strowman will return to TLC, crush Corbin and overcome him greatly. But to book a full episode of Raw around Corbin, Lashley and McIntyre, three heels that have nothing in common and no real reason to work together, eliminating Elias and Balor is just lazy. Clearly we will get an unlabelled team match next week and then, probably, a six-man tag before the FTA. Grade: D

Alexa Bliss takes control

After kissing Corbin in the backstage for doing a great job in establishing the law on Raw, Bliss offered his help in any way possible. Corbin, noticing how busy he is running the show, offered him the opportunity to take over the entire women's division of Raw, which Bliss accepted immediately. Later, Bliss tried to be nice to Sasha Banks and Bayley, offering them the opportunity to do a question and answer session with the WWE universe in the middle of the ring later in the show.

In that segment, Bliss began to praise herself and tried, but failed to open a gap between Banks and Bayley. After only one question from a member of the audience planted that neither Banks nor Bayley had a good response, Mickie James, Alicia Fox and Dana Brooke attacked Banks & Bayley from behind, removing them from the chairs of their directors. Banks & Bayley quickly cleaned the house to finish a segment.

Well, that was stupid. Literally, just last night in the Starrcade broadcast, Brooke was a face with Banks & Bayley. The fact that Bliss is put in this role is intelligent, since she is marginalized indefinitely due to concussion problems, but she used her new power to … Have Banks & Bayley attacked in the back and the attackers fail in do what? What exactly is the point of that when there is already a trio of heels in the Riott Squadron that did exactly the same within the same hour in the program? Grade: D

What else happened on Raw?

  • Dean Ambrose is immunized: In a recorded promotion while sitting in a doctor's office, Ambrose criticized the fans and their disgusting nature, saying he decided he needed a full range of vaccines before appearing on another Raw. With six shots already on his shoulder, Ambrose pulled down his pants to grab a long needle and ripped Seth Rollins. "There is no shower that can wash away your sins, and there is no medicine that can assure sickness in your soul, you are a lost cause, compadre," he said. This was much better than his promotion last week.
  • Fight House Party def. Revival through pinfall: The Revival excused his loss last week for not understanding the "rules of the fight house"; after promising to win this match according to the regular rules, it was again announced that the match would be played in the format of three against two. It did not take long for LHP to use the rules in their favor, hit their finalists and win.
  • Nia Jax catches Ronda Rousey, but does not really do anything: Jax, along with Tamina Snuka, made promises to Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey, joking about knocking out Lynch and Rousey's career, as they fought from the first time they fought. to loud chants Rousey told Jax that he had been lucky several times, but his luck was over. Rousey promised to tear Jax's arm off and slap Charlotte Flair with the singing as the songs began again. Rousey challenged Jax immediately, but Jax denied it and began to ramble on purpose. That was when Snuka was placed behind Rousey, which led to Natalya's music playing. However, when Natlaya ran down to the ring, she was attacked in the ring by Riott Squadron. Rousey ran out to save her and the segment ended. Why does Riott Squadron hate Natalya all of a sudden, and why does Jax have them planted on this stage when Snuka could have taken Rousey with her?
  • Raw Tag Team Championship – AOP (c) def. Bobby Roode and Chad Gable through pinfall to retain titles: Before the game, manager Drake Maverick promised that Roode & Gable would feel the fear he felt for Big Show when he wet his pants. When the fight began, Maverick stole Roode's robe, took it backstage, placed it on a toilet and urinated on it. This was shown in the sand in the middle of the match, while Roode & Gable had the advantage. Distracted, Roode was thrown to Gable, who was removed the apron; AOP then hit his high powerbomb shot. This really sounds worse than it was when Maverick whistled the Roode theme music while urinating was a nice touch.
  • Ember Moon def. Alicia Fox via pinfall | Jinder Mahal def. By no means Joseph via pinfall: With Curt Hawkins in his corner (?), Moon hit the Eclipse and hit Foxy. Then the musical success of No Way Jose and a line of conga ran in the front line. After the commercial, Mahal had some problems with Jose, but eventually he hit The Khallas for the win.
  • Intercontinental Championship – Seth Rollins (c) def. Dolph Ziggler through pinfall to retain the title: With Ambrose not in the arena, Rollins announced that he was going back to what he does best: being a wrestling champion. There were rumors about who would respond to Rollins' open challenge, but the fact that it was Ziggler was completely surprising, considering how often we have seen this game recently. That said, the game was great. Ziggler got a close fall with a famous and twice avoided a Rollins Stomp, the second time against a Zig-Zag for another two points. The party had a slight chant of "this is impressive" when Ziggler gave up trying to get a superkick with Rollins unable to stand up. Ziggler mocked him, so Rollins wrapped him in an indoor crib for a 2.8 count. The ziggler configuration for a maneuver from the top rope, but Rollins pounced, hitting the superplex on the Falcon Arrow for a rare 1-2-3 non-finisher.
