The Cruiserweight and United States titles are on the line in a good warm-up for Clash of Champions.
The first round of King of the Ring continues, a new contender for the RAW Tag Titles is named, Natalya looks to get revenge on Sasha Banks, and more on an average episode of RAW.
The King of the Ring tournament begins with two matches, and Rollins teams with Strowman to challenge for the RAW Tag Titles held by The OC in a pretty good episode of RAW.
This year’s SummerSlam was a mostly good show. It featured some fun moments and had a few very entertaining matches, including the main event of Seth Rollins versus Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title.
This year’s Extreme Rules was an up and down show with some really good, some not so good, and some fairly uninteresting matches.
Styles gets a shot at the US Title, Maria Kanellis reveals some big news, Drake Maverick tries to enjoy his honeymoon, Samoa Joe makes a statement in the ring, Strowman and Lashley have an explosive match, and more on an interesting episode of RAW.
Shenanigans were afoot in a Money in the Bank that featured a few great matches and moments as well as more than a few head-scratching segments.

Daniel Bryan unveils a new title belt, number one contenders are decided for the tag titles, Becky and Charlotte have words, and the US Title is in double jeopardy on a mostly entertaining episode of SmackDown Live.
Rusev challenges Shinsuke Nakamura for the US Title on a good episode of SmackDown Live that also featured Samoa Joe versus Jeff Hardy, Mustafa Ali versus Andrade Almas, and a big eight man tag team match.
Styles attempts to focus on Almas, Kingston tries to survive Cesaro, Rusev seeks the US Title, Becky Lynch is honored as the new champ on a good episode of SmackDown Live.
Despite Backlash being an underwhelming show, there were some matches and moments that make it a show worth watching (or at least skipping through).
While the Greatest Royal Rumble was very long and ultimately didn’t mean much, there were some fun moments and good matches on the show.

This was another long WrestleMania with a mostly entertaining mixture of memorable moments, good matches, underwhelming matches, and strange decisions.
A night of unsurprising yet fairly entertaining surprises culminated in an expected brawl before Survivor Series.
Fallout from Hell in a Cell takes precedence on an alright, but no great, episode of SmackDown Live.
