WWE Raw Winners And Grades
Cody Rhodes Announces Team Cody
Cody Rhodes, who received a rockstar reception, introduced his WarGames team: Sami Zayn, Jey Uso and a way-too-happy-to-be-there Seth Rollins.
Seth Rollins (kayfabe) hates Cody Rhodes. Seth shouldn’t have been gleefully dancing out to the ring as a member of Cody Rhodes’ team. To keep up with continuity, Seth needs to be walking to this ring the way James Harden walked to Sixers practice.
There wasn’t too much heat for Seth Rollins and Cody Rhodes staring each other down. Fans were more interested in chanting “yeet!”
The Judgment Day laid out a good case as to why their team was superior. They noted how Team Cody was thrown together, Seth Rollins and Cody don’t get along and Jey Uso screwed over all of his teammates as a member of The Bloodline.
Seth Rollins cut en excellent closing-statement promo of his own to answer the Judgment Day.
WWE Raw Opening Segment Grade: B+
Judgment Day Vs. Seth Rollins And Sami Zayn Ends In DQ
Damian Priest declared himself the leader of the Judgment Day, and this did not appear to sit well with the other members.
JD McDonagh continues to be a pledge of the Judgment Day. It’s already starting to feel like somebody trying to join the Beatles post-Yoko Ono.
WWE did a Judgment Day main event in its opening segment with the same results: outside interference.
Rhea Ripley And Zoey Starks Face Off
Adam Pearce was infuriated with the outside interference, even Michael Cole said it was the same ending as last week. Pearce said the fans deserve better, and they cheered. Then Pearce banned everybody from ringside and fans were like “bro, chill, it’s not that serious.”
Rhea Ripley and Zoey Stark’s face-to-face had a lot of passion, just not from this crowd.
It was difficult to decipher whether or not Rhea Ripley was the babyface or heel in this segment, but fans decided to cheer her regardless.
Rhea Ripley and Zoey Stark Grade: B-
Shinsuke Nakamura Def. Otis
Shinsuke Nakamura cut a cryptic promo prior to this match, and nobody knows who he’s targeting.
Fans were very much behind Otis in this match, but it was designed to get over Shinsuke Nakamura’s descent into madness.
If ever there was a “way more over than their push” award in 2023, it would go to Otis.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Otis Grade: B
Tegan Nox Def. Piper Niven
WWE (finally) gave Tegan Nox a video vignette explaining who she was prior to this match.
The only heat for this match was Natalya leading chants of “Tegan!”
Tegan Nox won with a rollup after outside interference from Chelsea Green.
Piper Niven vs. Chelsea Green Grade: B-
Ludwig Kaiser Def. Tommaso Ciampa
There was a surprisingly loud pop when Giovanni Vinci was kicked out from ringside. Vinci later reappeared, and his outside interference led to a Ludwig Kaiser victory.
Ciampa lost due to outside interference, rendering DIY highly protected enhancement talent.
Ludwig Kaiser vs. Tommaso Ciampa Grade: C+
Xia Li Def. Indi Hartwell
Xia Li once again won by referee stoppage, but fans still don’t know quite how to react.
All things considered, Xia Li is being booked strong. Her match against Becky Lynch will be telling. If Xia wins via referee stoppage, it’ll be huge, and could finally get over that finish.
Xia Li vs. Indi Hartwell Grade: C
The Miz Def. Ivar
The Miz somehow kicked out of a super World’s Strongest Slam and even Bronson Reed (watching from ringside) seemed impressed.
Fans continued to back Babyface Miz, but at some points they even chanted “Raid!”
Babyface Miz won with his feet on the ropes. He’s their scumbag.
Poor Ivar. He was supposed to be competing for the Intercontinental Title, but due to a botch from a (possibly) concussed Ricochet, he’s been flexed out of those plans.
Bronson Reed attacked Ivar after this match, and big meaty men slapping meat can’t be too far behind.
Ivar vs. The Miz Grade: B
The Judgment Day Def. Cody Rhodes And Jey Uso
Backstage, JD McDonagh finally joined the Judgment Day after Damian Priest gave him a leather jacket.
Damian Priest is the leader, but only after he received permission from Rhea Ripley to lead a WarGames match that she isn’t in. You do the math.
Fans chanted “yeet!” every time Jay hit a stirke during his hot tag. He’s onto something with all this “yeeting.”
After showing good sportsmanship to Seth Rollins backstage, Drew McIntyre reappeared and hit Jey Uso with a Claymore behind the referee’s back. McIntyre shook hands with Rhea Ripley shortly after.
