...

Thank you for joining us, and we hope to see you next week again. The go-home show of Raw before SummerSlam is bound to be a cracker! See you tomorrow at SmackDown!

...

At least Raw ended on a semi-high note, which is much more than I can say for the rest of the show.

...

But wait, its Reigns! He hits him with a Spear to close out Raw!

...

Sheamus gets involved again with a rake to the eye followed by a Brogue kick, which Rusev follows up with a kick to the neck of his own. 1-2-3! Rusev retains!

...

Rusev looks like he may tap, but Sheamus comes out and Cesaro is distracted. Rusev takes advantage and lands a Superkick that earns him a 2 and a half! Phew! That was close.

...

They go blow for blow in the middle of the ring, which is punctuated by a springboard uppercut from Cesaro. Cesaro Swing! And he locks in the sharpshooter! 

...

He tries to lock in the Accolade, but Cesaro reverses it and deadlift slams him

...

Cesaro turns the tide with an Uppercut barrage and follows it with a DDT. But Rusev responds with a kick to the head that earns him a 2 count

...

He goes to work on Cesaro's shoulder as he rams it against the ringpost again. 

...

Cesaro tries to go for a cross body that Rusev sidesteps and sends the Swiss Superman shoulder first into the ringpost

...

Cesaro goes right after Rusev with an Uppercut barrage followed by a bowling ball from the ring apron!

...

Cesaro is out next, out of the blue, and tells Foley that he deserves a Championship shot. Foley makes the match up next on Raw! Cesaro takes on Rusev for the US Championship now!

...

Oh Rusev is out and sticks up for Mick Foley, calling him the "greatest GM in the history of mankind", once it is clear that the 2 GMs are merely masking their contempt for each other with niceties. 

...

Foley apologises to Bryan for Lesnar's actions on SmackDown, and Bryan follows suit by saying that he's sorry for Orton's actions this past week on Raw.

...

Daniel Bryan is welcomed out to a crowd going nuts with the Yes! chants. They've had precious little else to cheer today. 

...
...

Mick Foley is out next to talk to Daniel Bryan. 

...

Gallows kicks things off against Kofi and opens up with early offence. Oh, wait, the match is over. Gallows lands something that could be called a Reverse pancake faceplant and pins Kofi clean. 

...

Up next, is New Day, without Big E, going up against the Club. 

...
...
...

Sasha capitalises by hitting the double knees on Dana Brooke and pinning her 1-2-3! Sasha faces Charlotte in a one-on-one bout at SummerSlam! Dana Brooke is out of the picture.

...

The referee is distracted when Dana hits Sasha with her wristband, and Charlotte looks to take advantage of the situation from outside but ends up slapping Dana instead of the Boss. Wow, it was so obvious that it was a forced mistake. 

...

Dana Brooke seems to have the initial upper hand but Sasha fights back quickly. She lands a couple of clotheslines and tries to follow it up with a running splash in the corner, that is reversed by Brooke

...

Sasha Banks versus Dana Brooke is up next. Obviously, Charlotte is out with her protege.

...

We cut to a backstage segment where Rusev is screaming at Mick Foley for retribution for what happened to Lana. Foley makes the match between Reigns and Rusev for SummerSlam for the US Title!

...

Brilliant segment. The crowd were particularly raucous for this one :p

...

Rusev has had enough, and he goes after Reigns; who returns the favour with one big right hand that sends Rusev into Lana who goes face first into the cake. 

...

Roman challenges Rusev for a match at SummerSlam, which the US Champion turns down. Reigns taunts them by drinking their champagne. First drugs, then this?

...
...

Cue Roman Reigns. Mixed reactions for him. At least he isn't getting as much heat as he used to.

...

Lana orders the crowd to get up and take pictures of them. Crowd boos. Rusev" You're all just jealous American Pigs!"

...

The crowd chants 'boring!'; who would have ever thought of that?

...

Rusev brags about how Lana is only his, before flexing his biceps that she kisses. Cringe. That cake looks good in the background though.

...
...

Rusev is wearing a vest, without a shirt. Just thought you would like to know :p

...

Rusev is out next with his new bride Lana, who, truly, looks ravishing in her bridal gown. It's a full-scale marriage celebration with champagne and cake set out in the ring

...

True enough, Sin Cara makes the hot tag to Neville who comes charging in and nails the Red Arrow on D-Von. Pretty uneventful match, purely designed for making Neville look good

...

Bubba Ray starts off with a big boot to Sin Cara. And takes him to his corner so that the D-Von can tag in. They beat down on Sin Cara. Guess this sets up the big comeback from Neville *yawn*

...

Ah its Sin Cara! Wow. Do you feel the enthusiasm?

...

Dudley Boyz are out next, presumably to take on Neville and his mystery partner. Who is it? 

...
...

Lesnar advertised for Raw next week!

...

We cut to a video segment about Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton. Can't wait for that match, just like we can't wait for this episode of Raw to get over. What a shocker. But I guess they wanted to make this episode bad in contrast to the go-home show next week.

...

Cesaro looks to capitalise as he sends him back into the ring, but Sheamus pushes the referee between them. But the plan backfires as Cesaro rolls him up to pick up his second straight win over him in 2 weeks. Cesaro wins and celebrates with the fans!

...

Sheamus goes to the top turnbuckle again, only to eat an uppercut followed by a picture perfect dropkick from Cesaro. Sheamus falls over outside and is met with another Uppercut. 

...
...

Sheamus is unrelenting as he wraps Cesaro around his shoulder and hits White Noise. Pin! Another near fall!

...

Cesaro turns the tide after reversing an attempted 10 beats to the barrel and attempts the Cesaro swing. Sheamus escapes and nails him with the Irish Curse Backbreaker, and goes for the pin. 2 and a half!

...

Sheamus goes high(surprisingly) and takes out Cesaro from the top turnbuckle with a shoulder block. Michael Cole plus in how Mick Foley wants one of these men to 'establish physical dominance' over the other
