RAW Results and Reaction 3.02
WWE started magnificent as Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar entered the ring to do their promo. After Heyman's profanity words were expressed, Drew McIntyre theme music began. Heyman left the ring and McIntyre entered the ring and stood face-to-face with the Beast. Lesnar walked away and tried to trick McIntyre, only to receive the claymore. McIntyre left and returned. Met Lesnar at the entrance points and gave him two more claymores. McIntyre stood tall holding the WWE Championship title in the air. Lesnar has never been knocked out before and the Scottish Psychopath made it clear that nobody will get in his way to win at WrestleMania.
Reaction: YES YES YES!!!! Do I need to say more?
Street Profits defeated Rollins and Murphy
The Street Profits become the new RAW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. After losing at Super Showdown, they redeemed themselves and went strong. For Rollins, he tried to be sneaky by signalling AOP for distraction. The distraction worked temporarily and backfired Rollins by allowing Kevin Owens to hit him with a "Stunner" without the referee noticing. Montez Ford hit the frog splash on the Messiah and pinned him for the win.
Reaction: It is about time that the Street Profits become champions. But their title defense will happen this Sunday at Elimination Chamber PPV as Rollins demanded a rematch. I had thought that there would be no automatic rematch for the titles. Rollins must be his own General Manager as he wasted no time to declare a rematch and called out Kevin Owens for a match. Kevin Owens will more than likely answer the call this Sunday.
Riddick Moss defeats Ricochet
The match was for the 24/7 title, a title that has no relevance or value to the other major championships. Cedric Alexander would have been a perfect candidate to elevate himself after being buried in the roster. However, it was Ricochet who took the defeat and left the WWE Universe wondering if Ricochet had been buried as well. Ricochet is a former United States Champion that could never get by AJ Styles. He fought numerous matches but found himself losing big matches. He lost to Brock Lesnar at Super Showdown and now lost to Moss for a meaningless belt. The Road to WrestleMania is not in it for Ricochet at this point. There are some concerns on the direction for Ricochet.
Aleister Black vs OC
The match was supposed to be Black vs AJ Styles. However, he had to face all of OCs individually per Styles' contract. Black defeated Luke Gallows and then Karl Anderson. Black was so exhausted in an unfair match that it was easy for AJ Styles to defeat Black. At the end, Styles mimicked the Undertaker by pinning Black while sticking his tongue out.
Reaction: There is some concern on the health of AJ Styles. He did not wrestle much at Super Showdown and did the same on RAW. Curious if he is still recovering from his shoulder injury at the Royal Rumble. In the storyline, the development of AJ vs Undertaker is getting good. I wonder if Undertaker will make an appearance next week.
For Aleister Black, he is one guy that will not settle for less. He will make an attempt to get back at the OC.
Liv Morgan defeated Ruby Riott
This match was troublesome at all ends. These superstars were a trio and now they have wondered on their own. Riott was the leader of the Riot Squad and thought she would get an easy win. Sarah Logan was a special guest referee and Morgan would like payback from her surprise attack from Riott. Morgan pinned Riott in a fast count from Logan. Morgan celebrated after her signature move on Riott. Logan attacked Morgan.
Reaction: This match was at least average to see. I would not be surprised if the viewers changed the channel. I do not expect these superstars to advance in the Elimination Chamber.
Shayna Baszler defeated Kairi Sane
Baszler had her first match on WWE RAW. Sane looked great being that she was a last minute booking. The original match was for Asuka. Asuka suffered a wrist injury and was not cleared to compete. Sane looked great but Baszler was too much for her. Becky Lynch made her presence but nothing happened.
Rey Mysterio and Humberto Carrillo defeated Andrade and Angel Garza
This match was fun to watch as these four superstars are so durable in the ring. Carrillo finally got a pin on Andrade thanks to Mysterio's double hit 619.
Reaction: Andrade will soon lose the title. The question is to whom. I have a feeling that Angel Garza will steal the momentum out of the four and be the next champion. He is the kind of guy you cannot trust. I would love to see an angle to where Zelina Vega gets in between to ego maniacs. Carrillo and Mysterio looked awesome. It will be Mysterio that will carry them over to stardom. Could we see a fatal-4-way between these guys?
You should not be surprised by Orton's action. He has lost his mind and continues to hear voices to destroy anyone that gets in the ring with him. By RKOing Beth Phoenix, expect Edge to return soon and attack Orton.
