Just when I thought there was a match I was less interested in seeing than Cody Rhodes vs Nick Aldis, Vince says "Hold my beer."

Full spoilers

Spoiler

* Roman Reigns opens tonight’s RAW. Loud boos as he make’s his entrance. Roman cuts a promo calling out Jinder Mahal. RAW GM Kurt Angle interrupts. Kurt announces Jinder Mahal vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Elias in a Money in the Bank qualifying match. Reigns demands he is added into the match but Angle confirms he will not be offered any more opportunities. Roman Reigns makes his way to the back but finds Jinder and the pair brawl backstage. The brawl makes its way back into the arena and Reigns hit a superman punch on Jinder before officials break it up.

* Intercontinental Championship: Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens. At one point in the match, Seth connects with a Falcon Arrow on the ring apron to Owens. Rollins ends up picking up the victory after hitting the curb stomp.

* Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas ask Kurt Angle for a tag match later. They are referring to themselves as the “B-Team.” Kurt grants their wish.

* Money in the Bank Qualifying match: No Way Jose vs. Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode. Roode connects with the Glorious DDT on No Way Jose to pick up the win and advance to the Money in the Bank match.

* Backstage Kevin Owens demands are re-match against Seth Rollins.

* Breezango vs. The B-Team. The o2 crowd getting behind the “B-Team” by singing the “A-Team” theme. The B-Team defeat Breezango after hitting a double team neck breaker on Fandango. This is their first win on RAW we are told.

* Sasha Banks, Ember Moon & Natalya vs. The Riott Squad. Crowd have gone awfully quite during this match. Liv Morgan submits via Sharpshooter.

* Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring. Sami cuts a promo on Bobby Lashley. After they replayed that Lashley promo from last week the crowd chanted “boring.” Sami tells the crowd he has invited Lashley’s sisters to RAW next week to expose him.

* Women’s Money in the Bank Qualifying match: Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley vs. Mickie James. Alexa pins Bayley for the victory.

* Backstage Roman Reigns attacks Jinder Mahal again.

* WWE announces that RAW and SmackDown will head to Manchester in November.
* Braun Strowman & Finn Balor vs. Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre. Ziggler & McIntyre pick up the win after Ziggler pinned Balor. Outside of the ring, Strowman smashed McIntyre through his Greatest Royal Rumble trophy. This is considered a huge upset, given WWE trying to protect Strowman.

* Kurt Angle is shown backstage on his phone talking to Stephanie.

* Money in the Bank Qualifying match: Elias vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Kevin Owens. I am guessing that Owens replaced Jinder because he was attacked by Reigns twice tonight. Elias stops midmatch to sing for the fans. Fans start chanting “Bobby’s Sister!” Owens picks up the win after he hits Elias with a frog splash to get the pinfall victory. After the match, Owens & Sami beat down Lashley. Seth Rollins runs out to make the save. Out comes Roman Reigns and the match is turned into a six-man tag.

* Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Lashley vs. Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn & Elias. Reigns picks up the win for his team after he connects with a spear. This concluded the tapings.

For some reason, when the non-injured Bollywood Boy called for help, it reminded me of this. Perhaps, it was the tone of his voice.

BTW, Roman attacking Jinder repeatedly was the most bootleg Braun shit ever.

At least Roman didn't steal "I'm not finished with you yet." from Braun.

Absolutely. 

If you're not counting the majority of the matches. 

There were 8 matches. 4 tag matches and 4 singles or multi-person matches. There was no majority.

How in the fuck is this a Braun move? It was just twice, the second time to finish Jinder off after being held back during the first attempt.

It's not, especially since Roman has a habit of flying off the deep end and trying to kill someone when he's in a rage (beating down Triple H, driving an ambulance into a semi with Braun inside).  The big difference is that the second part, the spear, was calculated. Reigns usually reacts in the moment. That was pre-meditated. But even with that, Jinder screwed with Roman last week. It was payback in its most basic form for WWE.

They’re gonna fuck up and turn Jinder into a huge face character just by having him in a program with Reigns.

I can’t wait.

Based on the booking, it seems like Nia got the title to protect Alexa from being squashed by Ronda. Which explains the Even Stevens booking of both Alexa/Nia matches.

By the end,  Jinder was looking pretty sympathetic. 

I don't know why people keep insisting I should have sympathy for the heel who normally fires the first shot.
