Top Moments from Raw 8/1/16

Updated on August 5, 2016

Top Moments

The second week of RAW was filled with highs and lows. While many fans felt this week’s RAW wasn’t as good as the last one, it was still filled with some great moments.

The Opening Segment

For the first time in what felt like ages, two women opened up RAW. Sasha Banks stood in the ring to address the crowd after her championship win last week. She was soon interrupted by her rival, Charlotte. The two women’s promo was going well until it was disrupted by Chris Jericho and Enzo, who implemented themselves into the segment. Even though the two men added nothing to the segment, it did lead to a mixed tag team match with Sasha and Enzo facing off against Charlotte and Jericho.

Rollins and Balor face off

After scoring the #1 contender spot last week, Finn Balor came face to face with the man he’ll face at SummerSlam. Rollins in full heel mode tried to undermine the newcomer. Yet, Balor proved he wasn’t about to back down and that he was a threat to Rollins.

Roman Reigns new direction

Following his loss in the #1 contender match last week, fans were left wondering what would become of Roman Reigns. After returning from his suspension, things have been looking bleak for Reigns. With him out of the main event picture, there was a question about where the WWE was headed with his character.

This week, we found out Reigns is now a top contender to face Rusev for the US Championship. If the WWE is looking to slowly have Reigns get back to the top stop, a feud with Rusev is the best way to go.

Rollins vs Zayn

It’s a match the WWE Universe has been craving for a while. On Monday, Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn, two of the WWE’s best wrestlers faced off. Rollins and Zayn are known as technical wrestlers, their match was filled with high-flying moves and near miss pinfalls, keeping the crowd on their feet.


Brock Lesnar returns

The highlight of RAW was seeing the return of The Beast. In a few weeks, Lesnar fights Randy Orton at SummerSlam. Even though it’s one of the hyped matches of the upcoming PPV, it hasn’t garnered much attention from fans. But thanks to Randy Orton giving Brock at a surprise RKO at the end of RAW, this feud is now heating up between the two SuperStars.
