WWE Monday Night Raw Results – May 21 2018

114 Comments

We return to the announcement that Jinder Mahal will face Roman Reigns at Money In The Bank.

Sami Zayn makes his way to the ring, dancing like a maniac. He says two weeks ago we saw the wonderful interview between Lashley and Renee Young but we know it wasn’t totally accurate. So he introduces Lashley’s three sisters…

Three black men in drag make their way to the ring – to which Corey Graves says Lashley’s father was in the army, so perhaps he got around with some manly gals. I sense this is going to be a painful segment.

Zayn asks the one sister why she hit him with a broom. “Cathy” said that Lashley used to bully her, so she took the broom and swatted him away. Zayn interviews “Frances,” who is carrying a helmet. Frances is the one with the mustache. Frances used the helmet to hit Lashley so he’d stop hitting her on the head. “Jessica” says she carried a towel because he’d make her cry. The crowd is turning on this. The fake sisters talk trash about Lashley for some time but honestly, it’s such drivel that it isn’t worth typing.

Bobby Lashley’s music hits, and he comes out to no reaction smiling and pumping his fists. Lashley comes out and high fives the fans at ringside in an attempt to get them reengaged. Lashley addresses his “sisters” smiling. Lashley picks on them a bit before saying Frances has what every woman wants – a big, hairy moustache.

Zayn threatens Lashley and says he’s a piece of garbage. That’s what Lashley’s family thinks of him. Lashley stops smiling and looks at Zayn. Lashley grabs him, but the sisters grab him. Zayn and the sisters attack him before the sisters hold him up. Zayn gets a cheap shot in, but Lashley fights out and takes them all out. Lashley takes Frances, puts the helmet on him, and clubs the head. Lashley attacks Cathy and throws him over the top rope. Lashley then takes out Jessica and whips his rear end with the towel. Lashley then hits a spinebuster. Lashley puts the broom between Cathy’s legs and uses it to launch him over the top rope. Zayn retreats up the ramp. That was every bit as painful as we feared. Holy crap, it just had Vince written all over it.

We see a clip of Nia Jax challenging Ronda Rousey to the title match at Money In The Bank, which Ronda says she doesn’t deserve, however Nia pushes her to accept. Out comes Ember Moon for a match against Alexa Bliss.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Renee Young interview Alexa Bliss backstage. Renee asks if Alexa is confident she can beat Ember, considering she was part of the tag match that lost to Ember in her debut. Alexa reminds us that Ancient Rome was sacked the Visigoths, but it wasn’t because they were superior, it was because they had the element of surprise. She likens that to her losing to Ember, which won’t be the case tonight.

Ember Moon Vs. Alexa Bliss W/Mickie james

The bell rings and Bliss takes Moon down right away. She stands on her back and jumps a few times while grinning like a Cheshire cat. Ember attempts to kip-up but Alexa kicks her mid-way. They take the fight outside the ring and Alexa slams Ember into the barricade, hurting her shoulder, with Mickie James watching on.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Bliss still controlling the match. She focuses on the arm she hurt with knee drops to the elbow. Moon begins to make a comeback with a backbreaker. The War Goddess dropkicks Alexa to the apron.

Mickie gets caught about to attack Ember and the ref throws her out, the fans enjoyed that. Moon lays her out with a right hand before Alexa rolls her up for a two count. Ember hits the Eclipse for the pin and the win – not much love for Alexa.

Winner: Ember Moon

We see Stephanie McMahon backstage and in walk Finn Balor and Braun Strowman. Finn says they’re looking for Kurt but she says he was nice enough to give them the office for tonight. She offers them fruit, which Finn turns down but Braun grabs an apple. Finn says they want a rematch against Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre, but Stephanie says they’re not a team, and in fact they’ll be competing at Money In The Bank. She then says Braun probably blames Finn for their lost last week, so how about they can have a match tonight. They agree and then Braun crushes the apple in his hand and says he likes competition. Finn looks terrified.

No Way Jose congo’s his way to the ring as we head to a break.

*Commercial Break*

Baron Corbin Vs. No Way Jose

The bell rings and Jose unloads on Corbin. Jose blocks a shot and takes out Corbin on the floor. Corbin turns it around and leaps off the apron to take Jose down on the floor. Corbin stomps away on the floor now. Corbin brings it back into the ring and sends Jose into the ring post. Corbin presses Jose’s head into the post with his boot. Corbin with a 2 count.

Corbin keeps Jose grounded in the middle of the ring now. Jose tries to fight up but Corbin brings him back down. Jose tries to rally as he fights back. Corbin shuts him back down. Jose counters and sends Corbin shoulder-first into the ring post this time. More back and forth now. Jose with a big boot and more offense. Jose scoops Corbin on his shoulder and drops him face-first. Corbin kicks out at 2. Jose waits for Corbin to get up as he winds up for the knockout punch. Corbin counters but Jose rolls him up for a 2 count. Corbin gets right up and catches Jose in a Deep Six. Corbin waits a second and nails End of Days for the pin.

Winner: Baron Corbin

We see Kurt Angle backstage, seemingly taking selfies…or looking for signal. Chad Gable approaches him and says he was looking for him. Angle says he would like to have replaced Jinder with Gable in that MITB qualifier. Up walks Dolph and Drew. McIntyre says last week they beat two of Raw’s top Superstars and they’d like to do it again but clearly that’s above Angle’s pay grade. Dolph takes a shot at Gable, who squares-up to him. Angle separates them and says they will have a match tonight.

The B-Team make their way to the ring for a match. Is it just me or this a particularly bad episode of Raw?

*Commercial Break*

The B-Team Vs BReezango

Breeze starts off with Axel and they trade holds. Axel with a quick pin attempt. Breeze with a quick pin attempt on Axel next. Axel regroups with Dallas on the floor. He comes back in and tags Axel in. Breeze drops Bo on his face and covers for a two count.

Fandango tags in and comes off the top with a elbow while Breeze holds Bo. The B-Team ends up double teaming Fandango after Axel tags in. Dallas is tagged back in but Dango takes him down. Fandango dances over a fallen Dallas, who then rolls him up and gets the win!

Winner: The b-team

After the match, Axel and Dallas go wild with the celebration as their music hits. They celebrate hard up the ramp and go to the announce table. Axel crawls all over the announce table while Dallas brags and high-fives Graves, then hugs him. The celebration continues back down to ringside and then back up the ramp. They’re going to get over, mark my words.
