TAPED FOR MAIN EVENT

(A) No Way Jose & Zack Ryder beat Tyler Breeze & Curt Hawkins. Hawkins got a couple near falls. Lots of “Woo woo woo” from Zach and the crowd.

(B) Mickie James & Alicia Fox beat Dana Brooke & Ember Moon. Ember got a good pop. Okay heel heat for Fox and James. James sold a nee injury early. Dana tagged in. Mickie DDT’d her to win.

RAW NOTES

-Renee Young got the best pop when announcers came out.

-The crowd popped for Vince McMahon getting out of his limo.

-The crowd was into Braun and got a good laugh out of Elias’s song.

-There was little crowd reaction in any way when Vince announced he taking the Universal Title shot away from Braun.

-Ronda Rousey got a big pop, but Sasha Banks’s pop wasn’t far behind.

-Memphis still loves Jerry Lawler. His only appearance was the cameo leaving Vince’s office.

-The crowd liked chanting “No Chance in Hell!” Big love for both Vince and John Cena.

-Baron Corbin has serious heel heat.

-Finn Balor got a great crowd response all night.

-Nikki Cross got a nice pop for someone who hadn’t been on Raw before.

-There are still fans cheering for Dean Ambrose. Too many. The crowd was hot for the second half of the IC Title match.

-Brock Lesnar’s name was booed when Paul Heyman talked.

-Cena got the best reaction of the night every time he appeared, including for the main event at the end of the night. A little kid sitting next to me burst out crying when Balor won and Cena lost. It was his first WWE show and he was dressed in Cena gear.

-The most prominent merchandise was for Steve Austin’s “Stone Cold” and “Austin 3:16.” No sign of AEW merchandise yet, but “Bullet Club” was still prominent. There was also a good mix of merchandise for Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Ronda Rousey, and John Cena.

POST-RAW HAPPENINGS

-Corbin and Drew attacked Cena and Balor. Drew got on the mic and said he didn’t get pinned and Corbin didn’t get pinned. He delivered a Claymore to Balor. He then said Lesnar will finish Balor. He went for a Claymore on Cena, but Cena moved and the kick hit Corbin instead. Cena gave an Attitude Adjustment to Drew. Balor then delivered a Coup de Grace. The crowd left happy.
