Last night's Raw got things back on track in building up SummerSlam, which is now only two weeks away. Raw will have one more episode to do the heavy lifting, so time is short. While last night's show wasn't brilliant by any means, it was an improvement over last week, with most of the major angles being advanced.
Who got the most and least out of this show? Let's go take a look.
Ricochet punched his ticket to SummerSlam last night by winning a gauntlet match that also consisted of Andrade, Cesaro, Rey Mysterio, and Sami Zayn (not in that order). This puts him on a collision course with the man that stole the title from him, AJ Styles. It's a prominent spot for Ricochet to be in at SummerSlam. It's yet another indicator that he's the biggest NXT success story this year, surprisingly enough.
Ricochet vs. Styles II already looks like it should be the best match of the night, so we can look forward to that!
Winners: Gallows and Anderson
Gallows and Anderson look like they're being rewarded for signing a new contract recently. In a triple threat tag team match between them, The Usos, and The Revival, they won and became the new Raw Tag Team Champions.
It was the right decision. The Revival's second reign was as forgettable as their first. Meanwhile, Gallows and Anderson, united with AJ Styles, have momentum. Now, their faction, the O.C., is the dominant force in the Raw mid-card. It's a refreshing change.
Now they'll have a prominent spot at SummerSlam, and after the ending segment with Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, Drew McIntyre, The Usos, and Cedric Alexander, it looks like that spot will be in a monumental eight-man tag team match.
