Thanks to TJRWrestling reader Joshua Morget for sending along these results from the WWE Raw brand live event from Saturday, August 3 in Toledo, Ohio at the Huntington Center.
The image above is from WWE’s Instagram. Also included in the results are a WWE Instagram post and Twitter video.
The crowd was not as big as it has been for Smackdown tapings the last few years. Nothing was tarped off, but there were a lot of empty seats.
1. A.J. Styles defeated Cesaro and Richochet to retain US Title
Styles hit a Phenomenal forearm on Cesaro to win. Anderson/Gallows came out about nine minutes in. Anderson pulled Richochet off when he was going for a pin. Richochet went after them but Anderson took him out, allowing Styles to win. Typical triple threat match with each guy getting offense in. The crowd popped big for Ricochet.
2. Dana Brooke defeated Sarah Logan in about six minutes
The arena got behind Brooke since she’s from Ohio. She opened with cheap O-H I-O to get the crowd going. Logan had Brooke in a nice standing submission, but Brooke got to the ropes to escape. Brooke won with a Swanton Bomb.
Becky Lynch came out for a match, but she was attacked from behind by Lacey Evans.
3. Curt Hawkins and ZacK Ryder defeated The Revival in about 13 minutes
The Revival singled out Ryder for about half of the match before he made the hot tag. There was a lot of back and forth action after the hot tag before Ryder pinned Dawson for the win.
4. Becky Lynch defeated Lacey Evans in about 11 minutes
Evans came out and wanted the referee to start a 10-count. Lynch attacked from behind. Evans controlled most of the match. Lynch made her comeback and after back-to-back near falls on roll-ups, Lynch won with the Disarmher submission.
There was a 15-minute intermission.
5. No Way Jose defeated Robert Roode in about 10 minutes
The crowd was not into the match at all after intermission. Jose with the roll-up pin after Roode went for his finish and Jose countered.
Roode says he wasn’t ready and wants another match. He wants anybody from the back and out comes Braun Strowman. Roode leaves the ring and Braun starts to celebrate. Roode returns to attack from behind, but Braun dispatches of him quickly. Braun wants a match and challenges anyone from the back and out comes Sami Zayn.
6. Strowman defeated Zayn in about eight minutes
Zayn was Strowman’s scheduled opponent, but wanted to leave before the match started. Zayn attacked with a chair before the bell and controlled the offense for most of the match. Strowman countered and came on strong and won with a running powerslam.

7. Seth Rollins defeated Baron Corbin in about 20 minutes in a No Holds Barred match
Rollins was taped around the ribs, selling the attack from Brock Lesnar earlier this week and favoring his ribs, so Corbin attacked that most of the match. Both used kendo sticks on each other as well as a chair. Rollins was about to put Corbin through a table when Lacey Evans came out and pushed him off the top rope. Corbin put Rollins through the table with a Chokeslam. Becky Lynch came out and beat up Corbin before they put Corbin through the table. Rollins hit the Curb Stomp for the win.
The show was about 2 hours and 45 minutes long. Becky Lynch (after her win over Lacey Evans) and Braun Strowman walked around the barricade and took pictures/selfies and signed autographs for at least five minutes each after their matches.
Loudest pops of the night:
1. Seth Rollins
2. Becky Lynch
3. Braun Strowman
Loudest boos of the night:
1. A.J. Styles
2. Baron Corbin
3. The Revival
I talked to someone on the way out that was at the last Smackdown here in Toledo in February. He said he and his family enjoyed the constant action and pace tonight. The Smackdown that night had an hour-long gauntlet match, I believe.
