WWE Great Balls of Fire Review

Neville (c) def. Akira Tozawa by pinfall to retain WWE Cruiserweight Championship

Neville once again retains his title. Although it might be holding the division down, his heel tactics to keep his title seem to be new everytime he’s in a tough situation. This time around, a low blow secured the win for Neville.

Bray Wyatt def. Seth Rollins by pinfall

Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt had a decent match to open the show. Both men took some bumps early on and Wyatt took advantage of the match after poking Rollins in the eye. Both men have been stalled as of late over the past few months. Hopefully, this new storyline can freshen up both characters.

Big Cass def. Enzo Amore by pinfall

Big Cass DESTROYED Enzo Amore. Cass quickly took advantage of Enzo’s size and had an easy match. We won’t know where this rivalry will go but it seemed pretty lopsided last night.

Sheamus & Cesaro (c) def. The Hardy Boyz 4-3 in Iron Man match to retain Raw Tag Team Championship

This match was the “Wrestling Clinic” of the night. Sheamus and Cesaro had a 3-1 advantage with over 15 minutes left in the match and the Hardy Boyz tied the match 3-3 with less than three minutes left. Cesaro gained the last pin as the Raw Tag Team Titles were obtained. This match showed a few things. It showed that Sheamus and Cesaro are truly a good tag team and their improvements have been noticed by the fans. The Hardy Boyz proved that they could still make magic through their matches as well. Both teams will recover and we will see what the future holds for both teams.

Sasha Banks def. Alexa Bliss (c) by count out, Bliss retains Raw Women’s Championship

Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks had a great match. The fight after the match was even more magical. Banks giving Bliss her double knee move off the stage most definitely added some heat to their rivalry. Fans are calling for a rematch at SummerSlam, I agree.

The Miz (c) def. Dean Ambrose by pinfall to retain WWE Intercontinental Championship

The “Miz-tourage” came into play as the Miz retained his title. Ambrose handled the distractions well until the end of the match. The chaos helped Miz win. The fans weren’t really into this match. Seems like it’s time to freshen up Ambrose’s character.

Braun Strowman def. Roman Reigns in Ambulance Match

This match belonged in the Attitude Era. A LED Board Spot, Multiple Incidents with the Ambulance, and a Car Crash….and Stroman still walked out. This match was the match of the night for sure. These two aren’t done with each other and the next few weeks will be interesting in terms of storyline building. Roman Reigns is one interesting baby face for sure after this.

Brock Lesnar (c) def. Samoa Joe by pinfall to retain WWE Universal Championship

Lesnar was pushed this his limit quickly during this match. A table spot before the match even started and multiple Coquina Clutch attempts, Samoa Joe proved why he can clearly beat Lesnar. Unfortunately, Lesnar won after only one F-5.

This PPV was amazing. A great rebound for Monday Night Raw.
