WWE Monday Night Raw Results – July 17 2017

Kurt Angle makes his entrance to the ring and says he’s a bit nervous. Angle apologizes to the WWE Universe for being a distraction over the past couple of months. Before he makes his announcement, he wants to tell them what’s going on in his life. As a child, he was taught that every action has a consequence. Some are good and some are bad. Recently, he found out something from his past has a serious consequence because it’s changed his life. They’re giving him the “WHAT” treatment. Angle was afraid of change because he thought it would hurt his family, but they’re 100% supportive of this. WWE is supportive of this announcement.

When he was in college at Clarion University, he dated a young lady. They dated for a while, but stopped. She gave birth nine months after their last date to a baby boy. Angle was unaware of the pregnancy or the birth. The baby boy was put up for adoption and taken by a loving family. Angle wants to brag about this young man. He was a three sport athlete in high school. He was drafted for baseball, but he went to college to excel in wrestling. After college, he had options, but he wanted to become a WWE Superstar. Angle is happy he did that. They always settle everything in the ring on RAW. Angle introduces the newest member of RAW, his son…Jason Jordan!

Jason Jordan makes his way to the ring, and Angle starts crying. They then embrace in the ring. Angle holds his arms up and hugs him again.

The main event is Roman Reigns taking on Samoa Joe with the winner facing Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam. Coming up next, The Hardy Boyz will take on The Revival.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see a replay of Angle’s big announcement.

The Hardy Boyz make their way to the ring, followed by their opponents.

The Hardy Boyz Vs. The Revival

Before the bell can even ring The Hardy Boyz attack Dash and Dawson. The two teams brawl for a minute before being separated and the match officially begins.

Matt Hardy will start the match against Dash Wilder. Scott Dawson is quickly tagged in, and Matt puts him in the corner before hitting some shoulder thrusts. Dawson turns him around and chops him. Matt knocks him back and tags in Jeff Hardy. Jeff stomps him down before slamming him into the corner.

Dawson reverses a whip to the corner, but Jeff explodes out of the corner with a clothesline. Matt is tagged in, and they send Dawson hard into the corner. Matt connects with a headlock takeover. Gallows and Anderson are seen watching backstage. Dawson fights up while an “Obsolete” chant kicks up. Dash is tagged in, and they double-team Matt. Dash tags Dawson back in.

Dawson attacks him, but Matt starts bouncing him off the turnbuckles one at a time. Matt clotheslines him in the corner and connects with a bulldog for a two count. Jeff is tagged in, and they hit a double-team splash/leg drop combo. Dash comes in, and they take him down before hitting a double-team wheelbarrow slam. The Hardys are standing tall while we go to commercial.

*Commercial Break*

We come back from the break to see Dawson working over Matt’s knee. They make frequent tags to keep the pressure on Matt. Gallows and Anderson are still watching backstage. Dawson bends Hardy’s knee at an extreme angle. Wilder tags in, and he bends the knee over the middle rope.

Matt eventually makes a comeback against Dawson. Dash is quickly tagged in before Matt can make the tag. They cut him off a few more times before Jeff is tagged in.

Jeff dropkicks Dawson and hits Dash with an inverted atomic drop, a double leg to the midsection, and a low dropkick for a one count. Dash reverses a whip, but Jeff boots him down and comes off the second rope with a splash for a near fall. Dawson pulls Jeff’s hair, and Dash attacks from behind.

Dash knocks Matt off the apron. Dawson is tagged in. They try to double-team Jeff, but he escapes. Matt pulls Dash out of the ring, and Jeff rolls up Dawson for a two count. Jeff connects with a Twist of Fate, but Dash breaks it up. Matt knocks Dash out of the ring. The Hardys hit Dawson with Poetry in Motion. Jeff goes to the top rope, but Dash sweeps the feet. Jeff crashes to the mat. Dawson rolls him up with a handful of tights for the win.

Winners: The Revival

We see Charly Caruso backstage with Samoa Joe. She asks Joe if he has any qualms about stepping into “the big dog’s yard”. Joe says he isn’t a man who has qualms. He walked into Great Balls of Fire and showed everyone he doesn’t fear Brock Lesnar and came within inches of beating him. Reigns is a great athlete, but his perspective is skewed. Reigns thinks he’s an obstacle in his way, but he’s far more than that. He’s a force of nature that will blow through him on his way to slaying the beast. The first few times they met, Reigns was laid out, and his hand was raised in victory. Third time will be the charm.

A video shows WWE’s partnership with the Special Olympics. Norris Peterson, a participant, is at ringside. The crowd gives him a hand, and he leads them in a “YES” chant. Nice video.

*Commercial Break*

Roman Reigns comes to the ring for the main event!

Roman Reigns Vs. Samoa Joe

They lock up and struggle for control. They seem evenly matches as they try unsuccessfully to knock each other down. Joe slaps Roman in the face, so Reigns sends him out of the ring with a clothesline. Reigns prevents him from getting back in the ring with a hard right hand as we cut to commercial.

*Commercial Break*

We return just in time to see Samoa Joe barge Roman in the corner and hit an enziguiri that floors the big dog.

Joe lifts Roman to his feet and punches him in the corner before dragging him to the centre of the ring and continuing to tee-off. Roman attempts a roll-up but Joe kicks-out and regains control with a head crank. Roman eventually fights to his feet but Joe catches him with a quick suplex for a two-count. Back to the head crank from Joe.

Once again Joe fights back, avoids a Urinage, and hits a big clothesline. Roman puts Joe in the corner and lands many clotheslines before hitting a big boot that floors Joe. Roman takes to the corner and readies for a Superman punch but Joe wisely rolls from the ring. Roman rolls out as well ans runs around the ring for a drive-by kick but Joe clotheslines him in mid-air.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Joe headbutting Reigns on the mat. Reigns runs at Joe for a Superman but gets caught again and Joe gets a near-fall. Roman counters an arm-drag and lands a big Superman punch for a near-fall.

Both men are down and out comes Braun Strowman! Braun comes down and drags Joe from the ring and turns his attention to Roman Reigns, who looks like he has seen a ghost!

No Contest

Roman attacks Strowman before he can enter the ring and the two start brawling around ringside. Braun tosses Roman into the barricade, then into the ring through the middle ropes. Samoa Joe appears and attacks Braun but the big man slams him down.

Strowman enters the ring and beats Roman into the corner. Then attacks Joe in the opposite corner. He beats on both until Joe climbs up the turnbuckles behind him and locks-in the Coquida Clutch! Strowman kicks Roman away while still in the hold, then Roman runs and hits him with a Superman punch!

Roman looks for another Superman punch but Strowman catches him with a spinebuster, then hits Joe with a powerslam. Strowman lifts Roman and lands a running powerslam. Strowman turns to leave the ring but stops and comes back in. Braun lifts Roman by the vest and security try to stop him. Braun lifts Roman anyways and hits another running powerslam and screams at Roman. This time he does leave.
