Raw Results

*Live from Toronto, ON.

*Riddle & Seth Rollins open the show brawling in Gorilla Position…they continue into the arena & up into the fans before enough refs & agents arrive to separate them.

*Trish Stratus to the ring…Bayley, Dakota Kai, & Iyo Sky to the ring…they’re all big fans, but wonder what Trish is even doing here…Bianca Belair to the ring, says Trish walked so they all could run…Alexa Bliss & Asuka join Trish & Bianca…Bayley & crew back down.

(1)  Women’s Tag Title Tournament, Rd. 2: Dakota Kai & Iyo Sky def. Asuka & Alexa Bliss…Asuka sinks in the Asuka Lock on Dakota but didn’t see Dakota make the tag…Asuka thinks she’s won after Dakota taps but Iyo sneaks in & uses a Crucifix Roll Up for the win (18:42).

*Dolph Ziggler backstage with Kevin Patrick…Finn Balor interrupts…they trade insults & Dolph knocks Balor off his feet with a slap before heading through the curtain.

(2)  Finn Balor def. Dolph Ziggler…after a forearm shiver from Rhea Ripley, Dolph stumbles into 1916 from Balor, followed by the Coup de Grace for the win (13:05).

*Judgment Day backstage enjoying Balor’s victory…all that’s left tonight is for Priest to take care of Edge in his home town.

(4)  Bayley def. Aliyah…Bayley hits the Roseplant for the win (06:45).

(5)  Miz & Ciampa def. AJ Styles & Bobby Lashley by DQ…AJ Styles is attacked by a hooded “fan” leaning over the barricade, but security quickly drags off the dark-haired figure & the match is allowed to continue…moments later the “security guard” in full riot gear appears at ringside & takes off his tinted helmet to reveal it’s Dexter Lumis…he leans over the barricade to pull Miz into the crowd & the ref calls for the bell (13:28)…AFTER…Ciampa is still throwing hands on Lashley, so AJ makes the save with a Phenomenal Forearm & Lashley finishes things with a Spear…(no winner by DQ announced, so I’m sure this will be ruled a No Contest).

*Johnny Gargano to the ring…he’s back & betting on himself…Theory interrupts…it’s a REUNION OF THE WAY…but Theory is an asshole & tells Johnny to carry his bags…Gargano shuts Theory up with a superkick.
