On tonight’s episode of RAW, 2 new WWE tag teams were revealed: Chelsea Green & Piper Niven (the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions) and Drew McIntyre & Matt Riddle (who plan to go after the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship).
Also, it was revealed that Trish Stratus’ next match will be a Steel Cage match.
Below are the complete results:
– Judgment Day’s Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio & Mr. Money In The Bank Damian Priest kicked off tonight’s RAW. Priest said Finn Balor should’ve won the World Heavyweight Championship at SummerSlam.
JD McDonagh came out and said Finn Balor told him to deliver a message, and it’s that they should worry about Sami Zayn and Cody Rhodes.
Ripley cut off JD and said Judgment Day doesn’t take orders from anyone, especially from someone that’s not in their stable. Dominik told JD to leave as they are handling business.
Rhea told JD to tell Finn that they need to talk. Sami Zayn then came out and attacked JD. JD then sent Sami into the steel ring post. This leads to a match.

Katana Chance & Kayden Carter then interrupted and want a shot at the Titles. Piper Niven (fka Doudrop) then attacked both Katana & Kayden.
Piper then told Chelsea that she’s her new tag team partner. Chelsea then said she’s holding auditions, so Piper should feel free to provide her with the relevant info.

– Michael Cole interviewed Shinsuke Nakamura in the ring and asked him why he attacked World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins on last week’s RAW.
Nakamura said something in Japanese first and then said:
“I want the World Title.”
Cole asked was it necessary to kick Rollins in the head. Nakamura once again said something in Japanese and then said:
“I will win the World Title.”
Rollins then came out and said he doesn’t feel Nakamura is telling the whole truth. Rollins said all Nakamura had to do for a title shot was ask.

– Adam Pearce wasn’t happy with how Trish Stratus vs. Becky Lynch ended. He booked another rematch, this time inside a Steel Cage.
– Cody Rhodes def. Finn Balor
During the ending moments of the match, Damian Priest passed his Money In The Bank briefcase to Balor to use on Cody, but the briefcase slid past Balor and into Cody’s hands. Cody used it to hit Finn and Damian in the head.
Judgment Day attacked Cody after the match, which led to Sami Zayn making the save with a Steel Chair. However, JD McDonagh showed up and attacked Sami from behind.
Priest put Zayn through the announce table with a Razor’s Edge and Finn hit his finisher on Cody to end the show.
