It’s time for the red brands fallout show from the Great Balls of Fire pay per view from last night. With such an unorthodox pay per view there’s sure to be some superstars looking for rematches and payback tonight. Let’s find out what went down!

To start things off we get to see the crazyness that happened during Roman Reigns and Braun Strowmans match last night. Big Cass is the first one we see in the ring and the crowd boo’s the hell out of him. Since the split between Enzo and Cass, Cass has himself some new entrance music. They show a clip of Enzo being carried backstage last night. Cass puts the locker room on notice, he’s coming! His ego is blowing up but the Big Show comes out to get in his face. Then the fight begins. Big Show whooped him so bad Cass ran away. I see a match brewing.

Finn Balor vs. Elias Sampson

“Who wants to walk with Elias” asks Sampson as he gets ready to sing his song he wrote about Balor. The fight between these two has been building for a couple weeks and tonight it comes to a head. Sampson did his best in this match really taking it to Balor quite a few times but in the end Balor gets the win. After the match Matt and Jeff Hardy come out a d on their way to the ring stop and congratulate Balor on his win.

The Hardy Boys vs. Gallows and Anderson

In the ring the Hardy’s with mic in hand have a few words for the WWE universe. With an announcement the the Hardy’s have just begun they are interrupted by Gallows and Anderson. Matt has nine stitches from last night above his eye but he’s still ready to fight. Jeff got beat down by quite a bit of double teaming but the nearly broken Matt did some great saves. Jeff, with a second late (just like last night and at the Cage Match) couldn’t save Matt from being pinned by Gallows. With the match over the Revival comes to the ring and attacks the Hardy’s letting everyone know that they are back.

Next up we have the Miz, Maryse and the Miztourage in the ring for the Mizzies edition of Miz TV. Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel tie for the first Mizzie award ( best supporting ). Maryse wins for most beautiful leading lady. The last Mizzie is for the greatest man in the WWE of course the Miz is the winner of that one. He goes on with his usual talking bull like always. Dean Ambrose crashes the party and attacks the Miz as he hits the ring and he gets help from Seth Rollins. They send the Miz and crew running with their tails between their legs.

Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Nia Jax & Alexa Bliss (RAW women’s champion)

All Bliss really did in this match was run away. She his behind Jax every time she could or had to. I’m sure Jax is the best person for her to be hiding behind anyway. Quite a bit of everyone in the ring at the same time went on and in the end Banks and Bayley had their hands raised.

A Shattered Dreams production Goldust video is next and just like them all over the weeks Goldust is ready to fight his ex partner R-Truth. I thought they would have fought already but I’m thinking soon enough. Maybe tonight?

R-Truth vs. Goldust

Truth is back to his rapping way and it’s nice to see that. We do get to see those two beat each other finally tonight. I think Goldust was tired of not winning the tag team titles so he decided to go solo. This match was pretty damn physical but from mid carders they have toput on a tough match to keep the crowd interested. This time Goldust got the win but these two are far from done with each other I’m sure.

The RAW general manager Kurt Angle enters the ring to talk about Great Balls of Fire and the well being of Braun Strowman. Strowman will be back as soon as he is well enough. The conversation moves on and the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar comes to the ring with his advocate Paul Heyman. Angle what’s to talk about his idea for the title match at SummerSlam. Of course its Roman Reigns who interrupts Angle. As Reigns and Lesnar stand face to face, Samoa Joe enters the ring. Angle makes a match for next week between Joe and Reigns and the winner of that match will face Lesnar at SummerSlam for the Universal Championship. You know it’s pretty crazy that with all the men in the ring Brock Lesnar is the comic relief. What’s the WWE coming to. Corey Graves leaves the announce table again tonight in a hurry. We have seen him do this a lot over the past few months and I for one would like to know why.

Akira Tozawa w/ Titus O’Neil & Cedrick Alexander vs. Noam Dar w/Alicia Fox & Neville (cruiserweight champion)

Neville got to keep his title last night against Tozawa. Now tonight I see a loss in his future. Alexander and Dar are ready to squash the whole Fox thing but that will happen on 205 Live tomorrow night. As for tonight Neville and Dar just can’t pull it out and Alexander and Tozawa pick up a win.

Seth Rollins vs. Brey Wyatt

This match is a rematch of the controversial match these two had last night. The rivalry between these two has been up and down on both sides and tonight they fought tooth and nail. Towards the end of the match, Rollins, used the crowd to feed his momentum. With the hurt eye of Rollins from last night it let him walk right into sister Abigail and Wyatt wins. After the match the Miz and the Miztourage attack Rollins and he gets help from an old partner. Dean Ambrose. He beat the Miz with a chair it was great!

An average show this week. I think that everyone was worn out from Great Balls of Fire. I give this week a 7 out of 10.

Until next week!
