What is going to be the aftermath of Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker’s brawl last Monday night when Lesnar got cuffed and hauled away by law enforcement? And how will The Authority keep these two apart from each other as SummerSlam draws near? How will Team Bella deal with Team B.A.D. and Team Paige both gunning for the Divas Championship? Will Cesaro get revenge on Kevin Owens after receiving a pop-up power bomb from the former NXT champ last week? Are Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose ready for more theatrics from Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper? All this and more tonight on Raw.
Join us here at PMN for live updates and video highlights of all the action starting at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).
* HHH opens the show with Seth Rollins and Stephanie McMahon by his side. HHH announces SummerSlam will now be a 4-hour event. Steph reminds us that Lesnar and Undertaker will square off at SummerSlam. And for tonight they announce the following matches: Big Show vs. Dean Ambrose, Paige vs. Sahsa Banks, Kevin Owens vs. Randy Orton, Alicia Fox & Nikki Bella vs. Becky Lynch & Charlotte. Rollins declares himself the greatest WWE champion ever and this brings out U.S. champ John Cena who proposes a heavyweight title match against Rollins. The Authority shoots down the idea, but says the two will fight tonight, but it will be for Cena’s U.S. Title.
* Dean Ambrose vs. Big Show — Miz on guest commentary. Big Show lands a KO punch from outside the ring as Ambrose dives through the ropes at him. Big Show goes back in the ring and Ambrose never recovers and is counted out. Ambrose gets a little payback after the match as Big Show runs at him, he moves and the big guy goes through the barricade and is left laying on the floor, and Ambrose is the one who is able to walk off.
* Fandango vs. Neville — Neville with a quick Red Arrow finish. Stardust comes over the titantron after the match with a trademark strange message.
* This happened:
— WWE (@WWE) July 28, 2015
* Paige (with Charlotte & Becky) vs. Sasha Banks (with Tamina & Naomi) — Sahsa submits Paige with a Bank Statement.
* Seth Rollins gives an interview backstage with Renee about his upcoming match with John Cena.
* Rusev has a surprise for Summer Rae. A dog named Dog Ziggler. He then gives her a dead cold fish named Lana. This brings out Lana who whips up on Summer, slaps Rusev and rubs Summer’s face in the dead fish. She’s supremely grossed out.
* Lucha Dragons vs. Los Matadores — Prime Time Players on guest commentary. New Day comes out confronts Prime Time Players. Kalisto rolls up Los Matadores for the pin.
* Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper come out. Bray talks about how he fixed Luke. Luke says Bray showed him the way and his life is his. Bray sends a message to Roman Reigns.
* Becky Lynch, Charlotte (with Paige) vs. Nikki Bella, Alicia Fox (with Brie) — Becky submits Alicia with a Disarmer.
* Randy Orton vs. Kevin Owens — Sheamus on guest commentary. Sheamus interferes and takes out Orton with a Brogue Kick causing the disqualification. Cesaro comes out and attacks Owens and Sheamus. Owens ends Cesaro with a pop-up power bomb. Sheamus exits with his Money In The Bank briefcase.
* Seth Rollins vs. John Cena (U.S. Title on the line) — Cena gets his nose busted up pretty bad from a flying knee from Rollins — bleeding and apparently broken. Cena hangs tough though and moves out of the way as Rollins flips off the top rope. Cena is then able to submit the heavyweight champ to retain the U.S. Title.
