We’ll get to what you see in the picture directly above. First, let’s talk about how Sasha Banks beat Charlotte for the WWE Women’s Championship. It was a fantastic match, which isn’t surprising.
Sasha and Charlotte seem incapable of putting on bad matches together.
My favorite part (aside from The Boss winning gold) has to be the Eddie Guerrero moment that Sasha pulled out. Her love of that man keeps on creating gold moments. She said she wanted to be the female Eddie, and if you ask me, she’s accomplished exactly that.

Okay, onto Finn Balor. That’s right, I’m writing about Finn Balor on Monday Night Raw. The show opened with Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley announcing that there would be a new title on RAW: the WWE Universal Championship.
Awful name, but glad the show gets its own main title. They then announced that there would be two Fatal 4-Way matches, and that the winners of each would go on to face each other in the main event of the evening.
Whoever won that would go on to face Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
Finn Balor won the first 4-way, and Roman Reigns won the second. That meant Roman versus Finn in the main event for a spot at SummerSlam. A few months ago, it would’ve been a foregone conclusion that The Big Dog walked away with the W in a match like this. Not after that wellness violation, though.
The man is most definitely in the dog house. He’s been eating pins a lot lately. Last night was no different.
Balor wound up with the win.
On his first night in WWE, Finn won two matches, defeating Roman Reigns in one of them. To say this guy has potential in WWE would be a massive understatement. If he doesn’t win it in Brooklyn at SummerSlam, I expect it won’t be long before Balor takes home gold of some sort.
PS: Neville also made his return. The match was whatever, but it’s good to see him back.
