Las Vegas, Feb 14: A blockbuster championship match, a much-hyped debut and a first-ever “Festival of Friendship” were already announced for last night’s edition of Monday Night Raw.
This already made the episode a must watch that took place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Here are the results from the show:
Stephanie McMahon kicked off the show to bring last week’s incident that how Mick Foley embarrassed her during Samoa Joe’s contract signing.
She was interrupted by Roman Reigns who wanted to fight Braun Strowman later the night. But, he instead he was handed with a two-on-one handicap match against Gallows-Anderson.
This match was disqualified in the midway due to both of them attacking Reigns simultaneously. The punishment even continued once the referee called off the match.
The night was not over for Reigns as he was seen arriving on the scene after the match up between Strowman and Mark Henry.
Strowman connected with the power slam to pick up the win. Aftermath, Reigns tried to attack him but got caught by the big man who put him down with another bodyslam.
Sami Zayn defeated Rusev with the Helluva Kick and was interviewed about his momentum when he took the name of Samoa Joe who was already present at the backstage. Joe came right after him to deliver a vicious onslaught attack and made him choke on the ramp.
Emmalina made her debut on the Raw roster finally after 17 long weeks. She only said that from now on the crowd will be seeing her transformation into Emma, again before going to backstage.
The Festival of Friendship ended in a bad way after Kevin Owens turned on his best friend, Chris Jericho.
Prior to that, he destroyed a returning Gillberg on the ramp. He followed it up with a powerbomb through the ramp to Jericho and then smashed it up with a headbang. Jericho was taken to the local hospital for check up.
There were a couple of matches from the Cruiserweight division. Kofi Kingston defeated Bo Dallas in a singles competition.
In the main event, Charlotte was defeated by Bayley for the Women’s title. Dana Brooke came out to provide the distraction to Bayley but Sasha Banks provided neutralization coming from behind.
This allowed her to connect with the Bayley-to-belly to Charlotte and pick up the Women’s championship for the first time.
