Hello and welcome to day two of WWE Raw Live Draft Results!
I’m your host, CP Bialois, and it looks like tonight should be an interesting one with Mustafa Ali explaining his role behind Retribution and Seth Rollins bidding the brand farewell.
Oh, and there’s a draft as well. Plenty of things happening, so grab some snacks and settle in and WWE Raw Live Draft Results will see you back here at the 8 p.m. EST showtime.
See you then!
Randy Orton started the show cutting a promo that Drew McIntyre interrupted, and then he beat Orton pillar to post before Orton retreated backstage.
WWE Draft Round One:
Raw selected the Fiend.
Smackdown selected Bayley, protecting their women’s champion.
Raw picked Randy Orton.
Smackdown picked the Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford)
Raw picked Charlotte Flair.
No Disqualification Match – Kevin Owens vs. Aleister Black
This started out intense as both men put their all into it.
Black countered Owens by throwing him off the barricade and through a table at ringside as we headed to commercial.
The match got even more brutal before Owens finally powerbombed Black through a table for the pin.
WWE Draft round two selections were:
Raw selected Braun Strowman.
Smackdown kept Daniel Bryan.
Raw selected Matt Riddle.
Smackdown selected Kevin Owens.
Raw selected Jeff Hardy to close it out. Guess he and AJ Styles are going to continue their feud, too.
Miz TV featuring Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke was a fun exchange of insults before Natalya and Lana came out and upped it.
A mini brawl ensued that Mandy and Dana won, and we’re wondering if there’s a tag team match after the commerical despite the Women’s Battle Royal coming up.
MIz TV was still on and it was mentioned there will be a tag team match later on, but Lars Sullivan came out and destroyed Morrison while the Miz got away and couldn’t pull Morrison out.
The New Day and Street Profits swapped titles, and the New Day were challenged by Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.
WWE draft round three selections:
Raw selected Retribution, and Stephanie looked over her shoulder when she announced them.
Smackdown selected Lars Sullivan.
Raw selected Keith Lee.
Smackdown kept King Corbin.
Raw closed it out by selecting Alexa Bliss
Seth Rollins came out to say goodbye in Monday Night Messiah style, but was interupted by Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles, so Jeff challenged them to a Triple Threat Tag Match after the commercial.
Triple Threat Match – Jeff Hardy vs. Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles
This ended up being a simple triple threat match but the enegry was high and set a good apce as we headed to commercial.
The match was pay-per-view level and ended when Elias broke his guitar over Jeff’s back so Styles could pin him.
Looks like Elias thinks Jeff ran him over months back. Hello new, fun feud,
WWE Draft round four selections:
Raw grabbed Elias. Yep, he and Jeff Hardy are going to feud next.
Smackdown selected Sami Zayn to keep their Intercontinental Championship.
Raw selected Lacey Evans.
Smackdown selected Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura.
Raw picked Sheamus.
Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose vs. Natalya and Lana
This was a better match than we expected, with Mandy and Dana winning following a cool double team senton on Lana.
Natalya quit and walked away from Lana after yet another loss.
Angel Garza vs. Andrade with Zelina Vega joining the commentary team
This was a good match that Garza won after hitting his Wing Clipper.
After the match, Alexa Bliss and the Fiend attacked Andrade and Vega, hitting simultaneous Sister Abigails.
WWE Draft round five selections:
Raw selected Nikki Cross.
Smackdown selected Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode.
Raw selected R-Truth.
Smackdown selected Apollo Crews.
Raw selected Dabba-Kato
Raw Tag Team Championship – The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode
A fun match in the begining saw Roode and Ziggler with a new aggressive streak taking control.
A fun match saw the New Day retain their championships.
There have been way too many big hits and near falls off of them tonight and it’s kinda stealing some thunder from the performances overall.
Ricochet vs. Cedric Alexander (w/MVP, Bobby Lashley, and Shelton Benjamin)
We just want to say that maybe Ricochet is setting up the Hurt Business for Retirbution like Mustafa Ali did last week?
Nope, no betrayal here, but Ricochet won by disqualification after he tricked the referee into thinking Alexander hit him with the chair.
WWE Draft sixth round selections:
Raw selected Titus O’Neal
Smackdown selected Carmella. No surprise there after the mystery woman vignettes.
Raw selected Peyton Royce.
Smackdown selected Aleister Black.
Raw picked up Akira Tozawa.
The rest will be announced on Raw Talk.
Number One Contender Duel Brand Battle Royal
Nia Jax eliminated a handful of her opponents before Shayna Baszler helped the remaining women eliminate her after Jax had helped her against Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke.
This should be good goign forward.
A pretty good one on one between Natalya and Lacey Evans ended when Natalya eliminated Evans, and Lana kicked Natalya from behind to eliminate her.
She rolled out of the ring following a double headbutt from Jax and Tamina and everyone forgot about her.
So, Lana will face Aauka next week for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Orton and McIntyre’s night long brawl spilled out to the ringside area where security finally stepped in to end the show.
This was a rough show, and asdie from the triple threat match and Owens and Black’s no DQ, it was really pretty flat with some entertaining moments.
