On Monday Night Raw from the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, the show began with Seth Rollins defeating Jason Jordan.
Rollins was able to defeat Jordan with his ripcord knee. Then, after the match, Samoa Joe, who was ringside, would attack Rollins.
Joe also attacked Jordan, as he was going up the ramp.
After Rollins and Jordan asked for a match with Joe, Raw general manager Kurt Angle made a tag team match for late in the night. It would be Rollins, Dean Ambrose, and Jordan against Joe and The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus).
In a handicap match, Finn Balor defeated Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas. Balor was by disqualification as The Miztourage double-teamed Balor.
As they continued to attack Balor, Hideo Itami rushed down the ring for the save. It led to a tag team match in which Balor and Itami would get the win.
Cedric Alexander defeated Drew Gulak. In the No. 1 Contender Match for the Cruiserweight Championship, Alexander will now face Enzo Amore after getting the win with his Lumbar Check finisher.
Alexander will face Amore at the Royal Rumble for the Cruiserweight Championship.
Asuka then easily defeated Alicia Fox. She won by a cross-armbreaker finisher.
Joe and The Bar then defeated Rollins, Ambrose, and Jordan. Ambrose was injured on a dive to the outside, then Rollins was hit with the Brogue Kick, who then got the pin.
The Bar and Joe also attacked Ambrose and Rollins backstage later in the show. Joe re-injured Ambrose’s arm after slamming it into the production cart.
The Revival, who made their Raw return for the first-time in months, defeated Heath Slater and Rhyno. Both members of The Revival suffered injuries that put them out of action for months.
The Revival won their match with the Shatter Machine on Slater.
Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Mickie James got the win over Absolution (Paige, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Deville) via disqualification. Absolution lost when they refused to stop attacking Banks.
Nia Jax came down to the ring and dismantled Absolution, before the entire Raw Women’s Division to come out to the ring. That lead to Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon to appear and head to the ring, where she announced the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble match in January in Philadelphia.
