Welcome to the WWE Raw results for the Monday, September 26 episode of the weekly pro wrestling program. This week’s installment was held live at the Quickens Loan Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. The latest Raw marks the followup to Sunday’s Clash of Champions pay-per-view and includes Rusev challenging Roman Reigns in a rematch for the U.S. Championship. Below are all of the match-by-match results for the latest episode of Raw.
Roman Reigns and Rusev fought to a double count-out over the United States title. Late in the match, Lana got on the apron to distract Reigns but he saw Rusev coming at him and gained control. On the outside, he had a Driveby kick and then slammed Rusev head-first into the steps. The two men kept fighting into the crowd where they were eventually counted. Post-match, they fought back to the ringside area. Rusev used a chair to gain the upper hand but back in the ring he got a Spear from Reigns. Reigns set up the chair and sat on it before raising up the title. As Rusev started to recover, Reigns got up and hit the chair over his back.
Mick Foley was in the ring and discussed the Best of Seven series ending in a draw for last night’s match. He brought out Sheamus and Cesaro. Sheamus reminded Foley he said the winner of the series would get a championship opportunity. Foley said they would. He said the two brought out the best in each other, so he booked them to team up for a shot at the tag titles against the winner of Gallows and Anderson vs. New Day, next.
New Day defeated Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows via pinfall to retain the WWE Tag Team Championship. Late in the contest, New Day hit a finisher on Anderson. Gallows came in to break things up. The heel team hit Magic Killer on Big E, but then Kofi broke up the pinfall. Later, Kingston was able to connect with Trouble in Paradise on Anderson for the win.
In a backstage segment, Foley tried to get Sheamus and Cesaro on the same page. He told them to give it a chance because they could really shake up the tag team division.
Bayley defeated Anna Fields via pinfall. After last night’s loss in the title match, Bayley got a match against an amateur opponent on Raw. She hit the Bayley-to-Belly suplex for the win.
Backstage, Foley talked to Stephanie about how she brought a referee out to the ring last night just in time for Owens to beat Rollins. He mentioned Triple H asking her how it went when he picked her up last night. Stephanie defended herself then blasted Mick said it’s his job to protect Rollins when he goes after Owens and Jericho. She told him not to forget who he works for.
It was mentioned that Rollins suffered a rib injury during last night’s match and hadn’t been medically cleared to compete yet.
Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann defeated Lince Dorado and Drew Gulak via pinfall. The match went over eight minutes. Late in the bout, Swann caught Gulak with a kick move and rolled him into a bridge pinfall for the win. Post-match, Cole said TJ Perkins will appear on Raw.
Sheamus and Cesaro defeated Nick Cutler and Willis Williams via pinfall. The two new tag partners were reluctant to tag each other in. At several points, Cesaro had to slap Sheamus’ back to get into the match. Late in the contest, Sheamus hit Brogue Kicks on both opponents and then Cesaro pinned Cutler for the win.
They had a segment with women’s champ Charlotte coming to the ring with Dana Brooke to brag about last night’s win. She said she’s not like Bayley or internet darling Sasha, but she keeps winning because she’s that good. Sasha came out to interrupt. She said she still is owed her rematch for the title. Charlotte said she would get it, but next week. Sasha told her she’ll take back her title. She slapped Charlotte and hit a Backstabber on Brooke before putting her in the Bank Statement. Charlotte broke it up, but Sasha recovered and cleared them both from the ring.
TJ Perkins defeated Tony Neese via submission in a non-title match. Late in this one, Perkins hit a double chickenwing into a gut buster for the near fall. Perkins went to the top rope but Nese chopped him to stop things. Later, Perkins was able to lock Nese into the kneebar to make him tap.
Jericho hosted the Highlight Reel and introduced his friend Kevin Owens. Owens came out and talked up how he beat Seth Rollins last night. He called it Karma after Rollins injured John Cena, Sting and Finn Balor, because now he took out the most dangerous man in WWE. He said that makes him most dangerous now. Owens said he proved he should’ve been the No. 1 draft pick and is “the man.” Seth Rollins came out but security and WWE officials blocked his path to prevent him from going to the ring. Owens taunted from the ring saying for Mick Foley to take him backstage where he belongs. He suggested Rollins get a doctor’s note that says he was broken in half last night and can’t compete. They escorted Rollins backstage.
Enzo and Big Cass came out next to interrupt. They got into a back and forth verbal jab session. Eventually it led to Owens and Jericho threatening to punch Cass in the mouth but saying they don’t have a match to do it. Cass told them Mick Foley said they do have a match tonight, right now.
Kevin Owens & Chris Jericho defeated Enzo and Cass via pinfall. The match went over 16 minutes total. After the 11 p.m. hour hit, Enzo blocked a superplex attempt from Jericho, but leapt into a dropkick from Jericho moments later. Later on, Cass hit a big boot on Jericho and both guys fell to the outside. In the ring, Enzo hit a DDT on Owens. However, Owens came back with a clothesline followed by the Popup Powerbomb for the win to close Raw.
