After the in-ring returns of Kalisto and Becky Lynch at the recent SmackDown live events, it was up to the red brand to deliver the goods at the recent RAW-exclusive PPV. With three championship matches and the presence of top superstars such as Kevin Owens, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Chris Jericho, the fans were bound to get their money’s worth.
The fans in Minnesota were treated to some solid in-ring action that portrayed the potential of the RAW roster in its fullest capacity. So, here are the results from the show:
1. Neville vs. Bo Dallas
The show kicked off with a lower mid-card bout with fan favorite Neville going up against the newly reformed heel in Bo Dallas. As expected, Neville did his gravity-defying best to leave the fans in splits and came out top against Dallas. Interestingly, Neville didn’t use the Red Arrow but the 450 splash to finish the match. Here is a video of the epic maneuver posted by a fan:
Result: Neville def. Bo Dallas
2. Braun Strowman vs. Sin Cara
Braun Strowman was in action up next and faced off against Sin Cara. The Luchador got in a considerable amount of offense against the behemoth but met the same fate as always – the inevitable loss against the undefeated monster. Strowman has been getting some valuable in-ring experience by working relatively longer matches with Sin Cara at live events.
The real test for him lies ahead when he faces off against his first legit opponent in Sami Zayn and surely, the David vs Goliath dynamic would make for an entertaining feud.
Result: Bruan Strowman def. Sin Cara
3. Enzo & Cass, The Golden Truth and Darren Young vs. Jinder Mahal, Titus O’Neil, The Shining Stars and Curtis Axel (10-Man Tag Team Match)
This mammoth tag team match pitting the faces against the heels was quite an entertaining encounter indeed. The match was a fun-filled bout due to the vivid and colorful personalities featured.
Enzo and Cass were quite over with the fans apart from Golden Truth and Curtis Axel – a Minnesota native.
Result: Enzo & Cass, Golden Truth and Darren Young def. Jinder Mahal, Titus O’Neil, The Shining Stars and Curtis Axel
4. Cesaro vs. Chris Jericho
The Swiss Superman and The Ayatollah of Rock and Rolla put on a great match for the fans, which isn’t a surprise considering the in-ring credentials of both men. Cesaro was the over face while Jericho, despite being equally loved by the fans, did his job of being the cocky heel to perfection.
Cesaro notched up an impressive win over the WWE legend after putting on a solid match.
Result: Cesaro def. Chris Jericho
