The John Report: The WWE Raw Deal 07/31/23 Review

wwe raw deal july 31

This week’s WWE Raw featured Seth Rollins & Sami Zayn teaming up against Dominik Mysterio & Damian Priest, Cody Rhodes-Brock Lesnar push to SummerSlam and more.

It is the last Raw before SummerSlam on Saturday in Detroit. It looks like a really good card that is mostly set at this point with this final Raw building up the big matches even more.

This is the Raw Deal for episode #1575 of Monday Night Raw. It’s taking place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Follow me on Twitter/X @johnreport. Let’s get to it.

There was a rundown of what’s coming up from the Raw commentary team Kevin Patrick and Corey Graves as they welcomed us to the show.

Let’s Hear from Logan Paul

Logan Paul made his entrance to boos. We got a replay from last week to set up the Logan match with Ricochet at SummerSlam. Logan welcomed us to Raw with the fans booing him when he called himself a WWE Superstar.

Logan insulted the fans for being “brain dead people.” Logan said he’s not there for the fans, he’s there for Ricochet. The fans were booing him loudly with Logan claiming he wanted to show Ricochet’s amazing athleticism to hype up their match at SummerSlam. Logan said he was sneak attacked, victimized and abused. Logan shouted about how Ricochet tried to make a spectacle out of the whole thing. Logan said that he’s going to beat Ricochet in the most viral WWE match in history.

Ricochet made his entrance to a good pop along with “Ricochet” chants. Ricochet said this week he is in Logan’s head. Ricochet told Logan he’s not the good guy in this situation. Ricochet got into the ring saying that Logan was an amazing showman, so Ricochet did respect that. The fans chanted “you suck” at Logan as he tried to do a promo. Logan said Ricochet is one of the greatest to do it until Logan got there. Logan reminded us of their Royal Rumble springboard double jump spot where they collided and we got a replay of that.

Logan said they’ll have a hell of a match and told him to put it there as they touched knuckles. Logan said that the ring announcer is going to announce the winner of the match and pointed out that Samantha Irvin the announcer is Ricochet’s fiancée. Logan said he hopes there are no hard feelings when he has Ricochet’s girl saying Logan Paul is the winner. Ricochet went after Paul with punches, but then Paul got a takedown. Ricochet ducked a clothesline attempt, then a backflip and a kick. Ricochet went for a springboard attack, but Logan KO’d him with a punch to the face. Logan stood tall to end it. Logan went live on his phone to brag about it.

Analysis: The crowd really hated Logan Paul here and he did a nice job playing off those reactions. Ricochet’s words were effective for him being in that spot. I thought Logan making it personal by mentioning Samantha Irvin was a nice touch because it was a heelish thing to do and it made Ricochet want to kick his ass even more. Logan got the upper hand here and I think he’ll win at SummerSlam too. The days of “look strong on TV, lose on PPV” are done. It doesn’t matter as much as it used to. Overall, I thought it was a good segment. The Houston crowd was really into it too, so that always helps.

There was a replay of last week when Drew McIntyre gave GUNTHER a Powerbomb through the commentary table.

The Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER, Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci were interviewed by Jackie Redmond. GUNTHER said that he was disappointed in Kaiser. GUNTHER said he wanted to take care of McIntyre, but he has other commitments and he’s not here tonight. GUNTHER said that Ludwig Kaiser needed to beat Matt Riddle tonight. GUNTHER said he’ll end Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam.

Analysis: Drew McIntyre is in Europe filming a movie. He will be back for SummerSlam.

Matt Riddle made his entrance for singles action.


Ludwig Kaiser (w/GUNTHER & Giovanni Vinci) vs. Matt Riddle

After they did some mat wrestling, Riddle hit two gutwrench suplexes in a row. When they exchanged strikes, Riddle rocked Kaiser with a forearm to the head. Riddle hit a Fisherman’s suplex for two. Kaiser sent Riddle into the ring post followed by a running dropkick. Kaiser hit a running uppercut on Riddle on the floor. Riddle used his legs to send a charging Kaiser over the top to the floor. Riddle hit a Floating Bro off the ropes onto Kaiser on the floor.


Riddle was in control with an overhead kick, forearm, Exploder Suplex, broton splash and a running kick to the chest. Riddle hit a bridging German Suplex for two. Riddle went for a splash again, but Kaiser got the knees up. Kaiser hit an elbow and a clothesline. Kaiser with a rolling senton followed by a kick to the body for two. Riddle with a ripcord knee, then a Fisherman’s suplex and Vinci was on the apron, so Riddle knocked him down. Riddle hit a Powerbomb along with a knee to the face for two. The fans were really into that nearfall. Kaiser countered a move into a pin for two. Kaiser with an uppercut, but Riddle hit a jumping knee. Riddle went up top and jumped off with a moonsault, but Kaiser avoided it. Kaiser hit a jumping enziguri kick. Kaiser hit a neckbreaker into a DDT for the pinfall win after 11 minutes.

Winner by pinfall: Ludwig Kaiser

Analysis: ***1/4 That was a good match with the crowd really getting into it in the last few minutes. Riddle’s offense is really fun to watch because he has a flurry of moves that are believable for nearfalls. Kaiser doesn’t usually win singles matches. However, since Riddle isn’t being pushed much right now, it was fine to give Kaiser a win to give him some credibility instead of having him lose another singles match.

Post match, Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER shook Kaiser’s hand to show that GUNTHER approved.

They showed Maxxine Dupri and Valhalla getting ready for their match in unique ways.

It said Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes were live up next.

A commercial aired for NXT promoting NXT Women’s Champion Tiffany Stratton similar to the Barbie movie. That was it. They didn’t promote anything specific.


Logan Paul was interviewed by Byron Saxton backstage. Logan said he gave Ricochet a preview of what’s coming at SummerSlam. Logan reiterated that it will be the most viral match in WWE history.

Cody Rhodes is now on TikTok @americnanightmarecody. I’m too old for it, so good luck to the youth out there that are on it.

There was a lengthy video package about the Cody Rhodes-Brock Lesnar rivalry that started on the April 3rd Raw when Lesnar attacked Rhodes. Cody found a way to win at Backlash and three weeks later Lesnar got the win back at Night of Champions. The third match will be at SummerSlam this Saturday. It ended with these words: “The Saga Ends…SummerSlam.”

Analysis: The graphic before the break said they were live up next, but it was just a video package. It was a very informative and good video.

Maxxine Dupri entered for her first singles match with Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable & Otis by her side.


A commercial aired for SummerSlam promoting Roman Reigns facing cousin Jey Uso.

Maxxine Dupri (w/Chad Gable & Otis) vs. Valhalla (w/Erik & Ivar)

Valhalla wrestles barefoot. She hasn’t wrestled much as this character, but she used to wrestle as Sarah Logan. Valhalla hit running knees. Dupri hit arm drags. Valhalla hit a running knee for two. Valhalla applied a chinlock, so Dupri got out of that and hit a kick to the head. Dupri hit a suplex. Dupri hit a corner splash. Otis did a dance on the apron, so Dupri hit a unique version of a Caterpillar elbow drop. Dupri went up and hit a cross body block. Erik was on the apron, the referee was distracted by that and Gable hit a moonsault. Valhalla hit a shoulder tackle to take control. Dupri got out of move off the turnbuckle, Dupri had Valhalla on her shoulders and Dupri fell back like a suplex for the pinfall win after four minutes.

Winner by pinfall: Maxxine Dupri

Analysis: *1/4 It was decent enough to advance the story by showing that Dupri has learned how to be a wrestler and found a way to win. It’s not like Valhalla is pushed, so having her lose is fine to give Dupri a win.

A video package aired showing the dominance of The Judgment Day last week on Raw.

The Judgment Day made their entrance at the end of the first hour.


There’s a match between Shinsuke Nakamura and Tommaso Ciampa still to come.

Let’s Hear from The Judgment Day

The Judgment Day’s Finn Balor, Senor Money in the Bank Damian Priest, NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio and Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley were in the ring doing a promo. Ripley said they run Raw. Priest mentioned their recent dominance while running down all the babyfaces they have injured week after week.

Finn Balor said that Seth Rollins walks out there acting insane wearing stupid clothes and laughing like a clown. Balor complained about what Rollins took from him seven years ago and said that Rollins ruined his career. Balor said he’s going to make Rollins remember what it feels like when Balor beats him for the World Heavyweight Championship.

When Dominik Mysterio tried to speak, the fans booed loudly and chanted “you suck” at him. Dominik said he is bringing back the Mysterio name. Ripley said that’s right because Dom will bring pride to the Mysterio name.

Rhea Ripley said that you should run and hide like Raquel Rodriguez or else you’ll spend time in rehab like Liv Morgan and Kevin Owens.

Raquel Rodriguez went out to the ring and got into a fight with Ripley. They got into a slugfest. Raquel clotheslined Ripley over the top to the floor. Raquel tackled Ripley into the ring post and Raquel threw Ripley into the barricade. Dominik stepped up to Raquel, so Ripley did a chop block to the left knee that Raquel injured in the past because of Ripley. There were officials to break it up as Ripley stomped on Raquel’s left knee again. The Judgment Day backed away at that point.

Analysis: This has been brewing for the last month with Ripley attacking Rodriguez perhaps because Ripley sees Raquel as a threat, so it made sense to have Raquel come after Ripley like this. I know Ripley in the past said that Raquel was her best friend, so I’m sure they like being in a feud at this point.

A video package aired about the Ronda Rousey-Shayna Baszler match at SummerSlam. Rousey spoke about seeing Baszler on Strikeforce and then they became friends on the Ultimate Fighter. Baszler spoke about how she was a training partner for Ronda’s fights, but Rousey didn’t do that for Baszler’s fights. Baszler said she was sick of being part of Ronda’s story and she’s not going to let it happen again. To be continued later in the show.

Analysis: That was an effective video package in terms of telling their story. Baszler is sick of being in Ronda’s shadow and that’s the story going into the match.

Shinsuke Nakamura entered for singles action.


Alpha Academy was shown backstage celebrating the win. Chad Gable & Otis talked about how one of them was going to win the SummerSlam Battle Royal. GUNTHER and Imperium walked up to them for some trash talk. GUNTHER wondered what happened to Chad Gable with Ludwig Kaiser saying Chad Gable couldn’t even last five minutes against him. Gable said he’ll take the five-minute challenge, but they should both leave their crew backstage. GUNTHER agreed to it.

Tommaso Ciampa vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Nakamura was in control sending Ciampa into the turnbuckle while Bronson Reed was shown watching on a TV backstage. Ciampa came back with a backbreaker long with a running dropkick. Nakamura came back with a knee to the ribs. Nakamura worked over Ciampa with kicks to the body. Nakamura was on the apron, so Ciampa hit him with a knee strike. Ciampa hit another running knee (with a loud leg slap) to knock Nakamura down on the floor. Ciampa clapped for himself leading to a break.


Nakamura got some offense going with a roundhouse kick to the head followed by the sliding German Suplex by the ropes for two. Ciampa hit a DDT-style move near the ropes for a two count. Nakamura came back with a running knee to the ribs. Ciampa hit a knee lift to block a charge. Nakamura with a kick to the ribs and Nakamura got a rollup using his upper body to pin Ciampa. The replay showed that Nakamura held onto Ciampa’s trunks to help with the pinfall win. It went about ten minutes.

Winner by pinfall: Shinsuke Nakamura

Analysis: **3/4 It was okay, but the crowd wasn’t into it much. It is a midcard story that has gotten some TV time in the last month or so, yet it doesn’t feel like a big deal at all. Nakamura cheating to win could be a sign that he’s going heel perhaps to align with Bronson Reed, but I know if that’s the plan. Ciampa will probably get some help from a returning Johnny Gargano soon. That seems very likely at this point.

Nakamura smiled about his clever cheating for the win. Bronson Reed was shown watching on a TV while Ciampa was frustrated in the ring.

They showed some highlights from Smackdown last Friday when Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa decimated Jey Uso.

It said Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes “live” up next again.


Raquel Rodriguez was getting her left knee checked on by a WWE doctor. Adam Pearce told Raquel that she’s not cleared yet, but when she is cleared he will give her a match with Rhea Ripley and Pearce said Raquel has his word on that.

Analysis: The Ripley-Rodriguez match was rumored for SummerSlam, but I guess it’s not happening there.

Let’s Hear from Brock Lesnar…and Cody Rhodes

Brock Lesnar made his entrance in his cowboy attire including a black cowboy hat. Lesnar faces Cody Rhodes this Saturday at SummerSlam in Detroit. Lesnar got into the ring for a promo. The fans chanted “Cody” so Lesnar laughed.

Lesnar started his promo by doing an introduction for himself like Paul Heyman did many times. Lesnar talked about being a NCAA Heavyweight Champion, UFC Heavyweight Champion and a WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World (ten times). Lesnar said this is fight week. The fans did the “WHAT” chant so Lesnar paused during the promos. Lesnar said at SummerSlam in Detroit he gets paid to fight and to kick ass against Cody Rhodes. Lesnar said Cody gets paid to get his ass kicked by Lesnar. Lesnar invited Cody to come out there and gave him five seconds before Lesnar leaves. That led to Cody’s music starting.

Cody Rhodes made his entrance wearing his wrestling gear instead of a suit. The fans were singing Cody’s “Kingdom” song and they did the “WHOA-OH” part of the song, but Cody didn’t extend his arms for it. Cody circled the ring the way Lesnar does.

Cody got into the ring with Lesnar, who took off his cowboy hat. Cody extended his hand for a shake and Lesnar shook his hand. Lesnar said something to Cody, but we couldn’t hear it. When Lesnar tried to leave, Cody stood in his way and Cody put his shoulder in the way.

Lesnar left the ring, so Cody hit him with a suicide dive on the floor. Lesnar drove Cody back-first into the ring post/steel steps. Lesnar hit Cody with the steel steps. Lesnar picked up the steel steps and hit Cody in the left arm with the steel steps. It looked like Lesnar might leave, but Lesnar hit Cody with the steel steps to the left arm again. Cody was back in the ring, so Lesnar joined him there and Lesnar hit an F5. Cody was grabbing his left arm/elbow to sell the attack. Lesnar left while Cody was down selling in the ring.

Analysis: It was another dominant ass kicking for Lesnar just like two weeks ago on Raw. Cody didn’t even say a word. Lesnar got to do the promo and destroy Cody as well. I think Cody is going to win at SummerSlam. I liked the segment because that is Lesnar at his best. If Cody doesn’t win at SummerSlam then I’ll be surprised by it because it should be a Cody victory. This whole feud should have been about elevating Cody.


GUNTHER vs. Chad Gable

This was a 5-minute challenge that was not for Gunther’s Intercontinental Title. There was a clock counting down from 5:00 with the clock shown in the lower bottom right of the screen.

Gunther was tossing Gable around easily in the first minute. Gunther pinned down holding his arms, but the Gable bridged up impressively. Gunther used his feet to do a neck twist. Gunther hit multiple uppercuts. Gable tried for a German Suplex, he couldn’t do it and Gunther chopped Gable down. Gable escaped a move and went for an Ankle Lock, but Gunther kicked Gable back. Gunther with a chop followed by a deep sleeper hold. Gunther went for a Powerbomb, but Gable did a headscissors sending Gunther over the top to the floor. The 5:00 was up, so Gable celebrated.

After the five minutes, Gunther said that this match is not over. It was announced that this match will continue right now. Gable dropkicked Gunther on the floor as the show went to break.


Gunther was dominating with a hard chop to the chest. Gable caught Gunther’s right arm leading to an armbar against the ropes. Gable with a knee attack on the right arm. Gable with a dropkick followed by an armbar on the right arm. Gunther came back with a German Suplex for two. Gunther went up top, but Gable got back up and hit a superplex for two. Gable with a spinning forearm, but Gunther came back with a hard chop. Gable with an up kick and a deadlift German Suplex for two. Gunther was back up with a big boot followed by a lariat for two. Gable went for the Chaos Theory suplex, but Gunther stopped that and hit three hard chops. Gunther hit a Powerbomb for the pinfall win after 12 minutes.

Winner by pinfall: GUNTHER

Analysis: ***3/4 That was a great match. Both guys are so talented, so it’s not a surprise that they had an entertaining match together. The crowd got into it more the longer it went on with Gable coming close to winning a few times. The ending was rather sudden with Gunther hitting the hard chops and a Powerbomb to win. I don’t want to criticize too much, but they could have made the finish more exciting.

After the match, Gunther stood on the commentary table saying get used to seeing him standing there and celebrating his success. Gunther said on Saturday, he will not lose the Intercontinental Championship. Gunther said he will end Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam.

Analysis: I’m picking Gunther to win over McIntyre at SummerSlam because I think Gunther will set the record for the longest IC Title reign ever in September. I wouldn’t mind seeing Drew get a push. I just think having Gunther set the record for the longest IC Title reign would be a good move.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Sami Zayn were shown standing backstage getting ready for their tag team match.

Becky Lynch made her entrance for a match.


Roman Reigns will be on ESPN’s First Take with Stephen A. Smith on Tuesday at 11:15 A.M. ET.

Cody Rhodes was interviewed by Byron Saxton, who really isn’t much shorter than Cody, but he looked that way here. Cody said that at SummerSlam, the aura of Brock Lesnar gets shattered.

Let’s Hear from Becky Lynch

Becky Lynch a promo saying she’s done everything she has needed to do to get her rematch with Trish Stratus. Lynch said there’s nothing left to do than to do it. Lynch called “Patricia” to come out there right now and let’s throw down in Houston, Texas.

Trish Stratus walked out with her facemask while Zoey Stark was with Trish. Stratus told Lynch she can’t tell her when to have this match. Trish told Lynch when she’ll get her rematch. Trish said she’s not a cheater, unlike the Astros. That led to boos. Trish spoke about her facemask situation, so there was Adam Pearce.

Adam Pearce, the WWE Official, said that this match is going to happen and it will be right now.

Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus (w/Zoey Stark)

The bell rang to start the match. Lynch attacked Trish with punches and Zoey Stark went into the ring to attack Lynch for the DQ. I think the match went about three seconds.

Match Result: No Match

Lynch fought with Trish and Stark on the floor. Lynch sent Stark back-first into the ring post. Trish hit Lynch with a chair to the ribs. The referee made Trish back away. Lynch was frustrated about it.

Analysis: It was yet another angle to continue the rivalry. We know the match is coming at SummerSlam. I don’t think this was that effective, but it does further the story a bit.


There was a replay of the Becky Lynch/Trish Stratus story before the break.

Trish Stratus and Zoey Stark were walking backstage where Adam Pearce was standing. Pearce said in two weeks in Winnipeg on Raw, Trish will face Lynch again and Stark is banned from ringside. Pearce said Trish had the home field advantage since it was in Canada. Trish wasn’t happy about it.

Analysis: The expectation was that Lynch-Stratus would be at SummerSlam, but it’s not happening there now. It’s on the August 14th Raw instead.

There was another video about Rhea Ripley’s story with Shayna Baszler. Rousey talked about how Baszler was always loyal to her. Rousey said she gave Baszler everything to the point that it made Baszler hate Rousey. Baszler said she’s done riding in the backseat. Baszler said it’s going to be a fight. Baszler said she’ll take Rousey’s reputation and said that Baszler has always been the baddest. Baszler said the worst part about this whole thing is outside of her husband and her mother, Baszler was the first one to hold her baby. Baszler said that she is the Godmother of Ronda’s daughter and that girl is never going to forgive Baszler for what Shayna does to Rousey.

The Rousey-Baszler match at SummerSlam is an MMA Rules match officially.

Analysis: The MMA Rules stipulation is fitting for Rousey and Baszler considering their background. Doing a worked MMA Rules match is not easy, but I’m sure they’ll work on it and be fine. I liked how Baszler mentioned the personal story at the end about being Godmother to Ronda’s daughter.

Sami Zayn entered for the main event.


This Friday on Smackdown the Roman Reigns-Jey Uso rivalry heats up even more on the night before SummerSlam. Plus, LA Knight faces Sheamus.

There was a rundown of SummerSlam matches:

* Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes

* WWE Women’s Championship: Asuka (c) vs. Bianca Belair vs. Charlotte Flair

* Logan Paul vs. Ricochet

* MMA Rules: Ronda Rousey vs. Shayna Baszler

* Intercontinental Championship: GUNTHER (c) vs. Drew McIntyre

* SummerSlam Battle Royal

* World Heavyweight Championship: Seth “Freakin” Rollins (c) vs. Finn Balor

* Tribal Combat Match (Anything Goes) For the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso

Analysis: That looks like the final card with eight matches. A lot of good wrestlers won’t be on the show, but that’s what happens with such a deep roster in WWE.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins made this entrance as the World Heavyweight Champion. The fans cheered while singing Seth’s song the whole time.

There was some brawling between Rollins & Zayn along with The Judgment Day guys. The match started after a break.


The bell rang to start the match.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins & Sami Zayn vs. Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio (w/Rhea Ripley & Finn Balor)

Rollins sent Dirty Dom into the top turnbuckle followed by a running kick. Zayn faced off against Priest with Zayn hitting an elbow smash to the head. Rollins tagged in with a double foot stomp to Priest’s left arm. Priest got some offense with an uppercut punch to stop a leaping Rollins. The J-Day guys took turns working over Rollins. They went to break with the heels in control of Rollins.


The heels were still in control of Rollins, who hit a rolling elbow on Dominik. Priest tagged in, Zayn got the tag and jumped over Priest leading to a clothesline. Zayn tossed Priest over the top to the floor. Zayn ran the ropes leading to a somersault dive over the top onto Priest over the floor. Zayn walked across the top rope leading to a Tornado DDT for two but Dominik broke up the pin attempt. Dominik tagged in, he sent Zayn into the ropes and Zayn came back with a clothesline. Rollins tagged back in against Priest with a Slingblade neckbreaker. Rollins hit three straight suicide dives on Priest on the floor. Back in the ring, Rollins went for a leap off the top, Priest caught Rollins and Rollins came back with a superkick. Dominik with a necksnap on the apron. Zayn pulled Dominik down leading to a clothesline on the floor. Ripley got in Zayn’s face, so Balor dropkicked Rollins into the barricade. Rollins was on the top rope, Priest hit Rollins in the back with a forearm and Priest hit a Razor’s Edge on Rollins. Priest wanted to cash in Money in the Bank, Balor handed Priest the briefcase although Balor was hesitant to do it. The cash in was never official because Rollins superkicked the briefcase into Priest’s. Zayn with a Helluva Kick to Balor to knock Finn off the apron and Rollins hit The Stomp on Priest for the pinfall win. It went about 12 minutes.

Winners by pinfall: Seth “Freakin” Rollins & Sami Zayn

Analysis: ***1/4 It was the usual good main event tag team match. We have seen so many variations of this kind of tag team match against The Judgment Day guys involving the Raw babyfaces, so it’s nothing that new. The main story point is that Balor was a bit reluctant to hand the MITB briefcase to Priest and because of that, Rollins was able to kick the briefcase into Priest’s face and finish off Priest after that. The crowd was into it.

Seth Rollins and Sami Zayn celebrated the win. The Judgment Day were out on the floor frustrated by the loss. End show.

Analysis: Rollins got his ass kicked last week, so this week he looked strong in winning the main event.


Three Stars of the Show

  2. Chad Gable
  3. Seth Rollins/Sami Zayn/Brock Lesnar


The Scoreboard

7.5 out of 10

Last week: 7.25

2023 Average: 7.27


Final Thoughts

I’ll keep this brief by saying it felt like a very good show overall. They obviously focused on building the SummerSlam matches and I thought WWE did a great job in terms of making us care about those matches. Plus, we got a terrific match between Gunther-Chad Gable and I enjoyed the main event tag quite a bit too. The Houston crowd was loud most of the night too, that always helps. I enjoyed it.
