NXT gives Summer Slam a run for its money with another great Takeover with some fantastic title matches.
Jack Swagger faces Bo Dallas and Sin Cara takes on Curtis Axel in a pretty good episode of Superstars.
Since this is the last episode of NXT before Takeover: Brooklyn, this show was basically a really long promo for the event (even though there were a couple of matches).
Kane squashes Ricky Starks and Baron Corbin faces Rhyno in a pretty average episode of Main Event.
The last RAW before Summer Slam was a decent show, though the wrestling suffered for the story lines heading into the PPV.
Sami Zayn takes on Curtis Axel and Jack Swagger faces Jinder Mahal in a pretty good episode of Superstars.
The matches were short, but things are shaping up nicely for Takeover.
An entertaining yet strange show. It was 50/50 RAW and SmackDown.
Neville returns to Superstars against “Mr. Irrelevant” Curtis Axel, and The Dudley Boyz face the makeshift team of Sin Cara and Jack Swagger in an average edition of WWE Superstars.
Hideo Itami returns to the ring, Asuka tries to mess with Bayley’s head, Bobby Roode addresses the NXT Universe, and The Revival takes on TM61 in a show that pushes NXT towards Takeover.
Jey Uso and Tyler Breeze have an entertaining rematch from last week’s show, and the Hype Bros debut as a team on the main roster against The Ascension in a match that is way better than it could have been.
While not as exciting as last week’s show, this RAW was still entertaining for the most part.
Considering the recent draft, this show was a bit underwhelming, but it was fine.
Blake and Murphy bookend a solid, if not great, episode of NXT.
A decent show with a nice main event.
A new start for RAW, and in many ways and a good show. It wasn’t perfect, but it was very entertaining and some big stuff happened. Hopefully they can keep this up.
Renee Young and the panel talk about the matches at Battleground, Daniel Bryan and Mick Foley are in the Social Media Lounge, and The Usos face Breezango in an entertaining match.
A so-so show. Only one decent match, and it wasn’t really anything spectacular.
A good show that felt a little like a continuation from last week in its changing of the guard due to the draft.
The last Main Event before the new rosters take effect was entertaining, if somewhat standard.
