Thoughts: Seth is absolutely untouchable on the mic! When this man speaks, you have to listen! Although Balor stuttered with his lines a bit, he covered up for it with his athletic moves. Seth is the next HHH and he’s cementing his place as the next top heel on RAW! This is shaping up to be a great feud!! Expect the match to be off the chain!
We’re told that the club have requested for the third member of the New Day to be banned from ringside during their match later tonight.
Rusev vs Mark Henry for the U.S. Title: Pretty decent back and forth match, with Henry taking the offensive part during the initial part of the match. Rusev comes back with a series of comeback but is stopped in his tracks by Henry, who hits him with the clothesline and a leg drop. Rusev tries to go for the accolade, but does not quite connect. Henry hits a series of clotheslines, but Rusev comes back with a spinning heel kick! Rusev with the Super kick to the back of the head, and hits the accolade for the win!
Post-match, Rusev cuts a promo about the Olympics being rigged and US winning only because it was rigged. Reigns’ music hits and he comes down to the ring and Rusev with right hands. Reigns hits a superman punch!! He tries to go for another, but Rusev rolls outside. Reigns with the Superman punch off the ring steps!!!! Tries to go for another one, but Rusev retreats!
Thoughts: Nothing much about the match, as it was expected that Rusev would go over Henry. He should have used Reigns’ recent doping allegations to generate more heel heat!! Excellent in ring work by Reigns. Arrived, kicked ass, left. Is a match for the US title on the cards for Reigns? He might come out victorious if that’s booked!

Thoughts: Well, I don’t really know what to say here about the match. Maybe it’s too early to comment! Moving on.
