We're in Miami, Florida at the FTX Arena for Raw tonight. The New Day are backstage to start and they talk about tag team turmoil tonight. They claim they're going to win it. Then we get the Viking Raiders followed by all the other tag teams. They all pretty much say the same thing. They all plan on winning.
The WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, RK-Bro, make their way to the ring. We see highlight of RK-Bro defeating Bobby Lashley and MVP last week including Orton's RKO on Lashley post match. They both have a mic and Orton says Lashley/MVP failed miserably to take their titles. Orton says Lashley is a greedy SOB. Orton says they're going to see which team will be next in line to be beaten by RK-Bro. Riddle says tonight will be sick. Riddle talks about all of the teams. LASHLEY AND MVP INTERRUPT! MVP tells Riddle to shut his dumb ass up. MVP says they should be more worried about Lashley and not tag team turmoil. Lashley calls Orton a coward for the RKO last week. Lashley plans to finish what Orton started. Lashley tells Orton to face him like a man one-on-one. Orton asking if Lashley is challenging him to a match and Lashley says yes. Orton says it's been 10-15 years since they've faced each other. Orton brings up Lashley talking about being a double champion last week. With that said, Orton accepts if Lashley puts the WWE Championship on the line. MVP whispers to Lashley. MVP offers for Lashley to accept the match for Extreme Rules. Lashley plans to talk to Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville to get added to tag team turmoil. Lashley says then they will take the tag titles and he'll be double champion just like he said. NEW DAY INTERRUPTS! Kofi asks Lashley if he heard correctly. Kofi says he better go ask them now because tag team turmoil is about to start. They say they're starting it. They've against the odds but they've beaten the odds before. New Day vow to go on and be the next champions. VIKING RAIDERS are out now. They're also starting.....
RK-Bro watch the tag team turmoil from commentary. The New Day defeated the Viking Raiders via pin @ 10:01. Woods pinned Erik with a cradle after Kofi hit him with Trouble in Paradise. I feel as though this may be the best portion of this match. We shall see. Jinder Mahal and Veer join the match next. The New Day defeated Jinder Mahal and Veer w/ Shanky via pin @ 17:14. Kofi pinned Mahal after a double team stomp. During a commercial for this match, we get another vignette with the new NXT logo with a date of 9/14. Lucha House Party entered the match next. Woods got isolated for most of this portion of the match but Woods pull out a win with a roll up. New Day eliminated Lucha House Party via pin @ 21:45. Mace and T-Bar enter the match next. The crowd seems to have lost interest in this part. I blame Mace and T-Bar for that. New Day defeated Mace and T-Bar via pin @ 30:15. T-Bar went for Feast Your Eyes on Woods but Woods countered with a roll up to eliminated them. Mace and T-Bar would then attack the New Day and leave them laid out. Mansoor and Mustafa Ali enter the match next. Mansoor rushes into the ring only for Mace and T-Bar to beat the hell out of him. Ali tries to save Mansoor but he gets whooped too. Mansoor is sent into the steps on the outside and Ali is sent into the ring post. Mansoor then gets hit with the steps. In the ring, T-Bar long darts Kofi into the steps (being held by Mace). Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce come out to try to stop things. Mace/T-Bar lift Woods for High Justice on the outside and run him into the ring post as we go to a commercial. During the break, Sonya Deville said they will give New Day and Mansoor/Ali a chance to heal up. Tag team turmoil will continue later tonight. Alright then.
Sheamus defeated Drew McIntyre via pin @ 14:49 in a #1 contenders match. Sheamus will now face Damian Priest for the WWE United States Championship at Extreme Rules. Both men used each other's moves against each other. The end of the match came when McIntyre ripped the mask off of Sheamus and went for a Claymore. Sheamus avoided the Claymore and rolled up McIntyre using the tights. Post match, Sheamus offers a handshake but McIntyre decks him in the face and then hits him with a Claymore! Priest is interviewed about his reaction. Priest says both of these guys can go. Priest says he has Sheamus' number.
Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H. are interviewed by Sarah Schreiber. Ripley says what her and Nikki have in common is they both want to be champion. They think they'll have some gold coming to them soon if they can beat Natalya and Tamina tonight.
Charlotte Flair is interviewed about how she plans on bouncing back from her loss last week. Flair says she's one of a kind and that Nia will be forced to bow down.
Rhea Ripley & Nikki A.S.H. defeated Natalya & Tamina (WWE Women's Tag Team Champions) via pin @ 9:29 in a championship contenders match. Natalya got Nikki in the Sharpshooter but Ripley had made a blind tag. Ripley then finished Natalya off with Riptide. Is it just me or should Shotzi and Nox be getting the title shot? They beat Natalya and Tamina before Natalya got injured. I'm willing to see where the story goes but that doesn't make sense.
Another vignette for the new NXT coming 9/14.
Earlier today, John Morrison had Karrion Kross on "Moist TV". Morrison keeps talking and running his mouth. Kross thanks Morrison for having him on the show. Kross plans to make people's worse dreams reality. Morrison asks Kross what he'll do next and Kross says make him suffer. Morrison laughs it off. Morrison asks if he's going after the WWE Championship or US Championship. Kross says he'll do both of those after he eliminates Morrison. Long story short, they're going to have a match tonight. Morrison's theme played for some reason in the background of this segment.
Helmet Kross defeated John Morrison via submission @ 2:01. Kross won with the Kross Jacket. Kross dominated this whole thing. At one point, Morrison squirted Kross in the face with the drip stick. Kross got pissed and then kicked his ass. Total squash!
A video package airs to hype Nia Jax. Nia is warming up backstage when she's interviewed. Nia says Charlotte is freaked out because no one has ever overpowered her like Nia did. Nia says Charlotte better get used to losing because she will finish what she started last week.
Charlotte Flair defeated Nia Jax w/ Shayna Baszler via pin @ 8:52 to retain the WWE Raw Women's Championship. Baszler got on the mic before the mic before the match began and asks if Nia could actually beat Charlotte again or will she choke. Charlotte provokes Nia and gives her the crotch chop along with a "Suck it". Charlotte got out of the ring and tried to take her title and leave but Nia pulled her back in the ring as Charlotte was in Baszler's face. Later in the match when Nia was in control, Baszler got on the apron to distract her which led to Charlotte hitting Nia with Natural Selection to get the win! Post match, ALEXA BLISS appears on the tron and invites Charlotte to come to the playground. Charlotte isn't interested in Alexa's mind game and refuses the offer. They trade jabs and Bliss says if Flair won't come, they'll take the playground to Charlotte. The lights flicker on and off. When they come back on, Alexa Bliss (and Lily) are behind Charlotte. Charlotte turns to confront her. Charlotte asks Bliss what she wants and Bliss points at the title. Flair asks if Bliss wants a title match. The crowd chants "Yes!". Charlotte says fine but this isn't Bliss' playground.....it's Charlotte's!
We see highlights of 24/7 Champion Reggie avoiding Akira Tozawa and R-Truth in recent weeks.
Reggie defeated Akira Tozawa via pin @ 0:40 to retain the 24/7 Championship. Short and sweet. Reggie flipped onto Tozawa to get the pin. Post match, most of the roster comes to the ring to try to get Reggie. He escapes and heads up the ramp. Drake Maverick is there to at the top of the ramp. Reggie still escapes. Truth has some words for Maverick.
Highlights of the Eva Marie/Doudrop rivalry. Doudrop is interviewed backstage. She's asked if her issues with Eva Marie are over? Doudrop says she's not done with Eva Marie just yet. Doudrop says more karma is still coming her way. Doudrop want a match with Eva next week.
Time for tag team turmoil to continue! Highlights are shown of what happened earlier.
RK-Bro is back on commentary. The New Day defeated Mansoor & Mustafa Ali via pin @ 4:17. At one point, Kofi superplexed Ali off the back of Mansoor! The ref backed off Mansoor to check on Woods' back. Ali would slap Mansoor to tag himself in. Ali blocked Trouble in Paradise but missed a 450. Kofi hits Trouble in Paradise this time. Woods followed with an elbow off the top to win. AJ Styles and Omos enter next. Commentary says the winners of this will face RK-Bro for the gold next week. At one point, Kofi hit Styles with Trouble in Paradise but Omos broke up the pin. Styles eliminated Kofi via pin @ 21:36 after a Styles Clash with an assist from Omos. Lashley and MVP enter now. Loud "MVP" chants since we're in his hometown of Miami. We got a Lashley vs. Omos stare down which the crowd got pumped for. They did a test of strength where the crowd chanted "Lashley". Riddle and Orton got taken out on the outside when Styles took out Lashley and Orton at the same time. Omos would throw Riddle into the ring post outside before launching him across the announce table. Styles missed a Phenomenal Forearm which opened the door for LASHLEY TO SPEAR STYLES FOR THE WIN @ 27:51! Post match, Omos planted Lashley with a two handed choke slam. As Lashley was getting to his feet, ORTON LAID LASHLEY OUT WITH A RKO!!! Orton holds up the WWE Championship over Lashley. Orton celebrates with Riddle to end the show.
