RAW opens with all the superstars on the stage for a minute silence for the victims of the weekend shootings in El Paso and Dayton. They cut to RAW theme song after that, which also gets cut as Samoa Joe jumps on top of the commentary table.
Joe is agitated that why is he treated as a suspect for Roman Reigns’ incident. Joe goes on about being wrongly accused last week, interrupting Cole and Graves after they interrupt him. The Samoan demands Cole show the footage again so we can determine the truth. We get a video package on the mystery attack. We come back to Joe and he threatens to come to the ring and shut the show down until he gets the apology he deserves.
He is interrupted by Becky Lynch’s entrance. Her partner for the evening Charlotte Flair follows her out before their opponents Natalya and Trish Stratus.
Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair defeated Natalya & Trish Stratus by Disqualification
Becky Lynch and Natalya kick things off and Natalya hits an arm drag. Natalya takes Becky down with a fireman’s carry as they trade counters and holds. Natalya locks in the armbar but doesn’t hold it for long. Lynch tries to step into the sharpshooter herself but Natalya escapes. She moves closer to the ropes and tries to go for the DisArmHer but Charlotte tags herself in. The first moment of tension between them. Charlotte takes control until Natalya turns a crucifix into a sunset flip for a two count.
Charlotte hits her with a big boot and mocks Trish. Flair controls the pace until Natalya kicks her into the middle turnbuckle. She grabs Flair’s legs for the Sharpshooter but is forced to break the hold. Nattie hits a clothesline but fails to tag in Trish. Lynch tags herself back in with a stiff tag and Charlotte hits her from behind to catch her with surprise and leaves the match altogether. Nattie grabs Becky and locks in the Sharpshooter but The Man makes it to the ropes.
The ref calls for the bell when Natalya refuses to break. Trish wasn’t tagged in at all. But she comes into the ring as Natalya refuses to let Becky go away from Sharpshooter. Trish gets them apart but Natalya pushes her in the corner to start a brief staredown between them.
