...

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.
