Roman Reigns makes a huge SummerSlam announcement, The Revival is set to return to the ring, and Alexa Bliss has several "contenders" contending for her title as we build up to Great Balls of Fire.

Roman Reign will kickoff tonight's show with his big summer announcement.

PROMO (In-Ring): Roman Reigns kicks off the show to a storm of boos from the crowd. He will be backing a big announcement regarding SummerSlam. He tells the fans that some may hate it and same may like what he says. He claims he cannot be beaten one on one, naming off Bray Wyatt, Finn Balor, and Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman as proof. He even gloated about main eventing WrestleMania for a third time and retired The Undertaker. After Great Balls of Fire, Roman does not care who wins between Joe and Lesnar. At SummerSlam, he names himself the #1 Contender because this is his yard and he makes the rules. Samoa Joe's music hits and interferes with Roman's speech. Joe marches to the ring and comes face to face with Reigns. Joe is offended that Roman "forgot his name" and noticed that his name wasn't on his list since Roman never beat him before. He reintroduces himself as the "true number one contender and next Universal champion". Reigns stands beside Heyman's words towards Joe. Joe headbutts Roman out of the ring and the two brawl on the outside. Joe drives Reigns into the barricades. Roman is tossed back into the ring and tries for the Coquian Clutch. Reigns fights out and lands a Superman Punch. Joe retreats up the ramp.

The Hardy Boyz make their way to the ring to face The Bullet Club. Daniel Bryan's return is advertised for SmackDown Live to determine the results from MITB.

*Commercial Break*

Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe is announced for tonight.

MATCH: The Hardy Boyz vs Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows

Jeff lands Poetry in Motion for a two-count. Jeff is isolated and Anderson gets back into the match. Jeff fights back into it, but is knocked off the top rope and lands hard to the mat.

*Commercial Break*

Jeff takes out Anderson on the outside and makes a sneaky tag. A Twist of Fate from Matt and a Swanton Bomb from Jeff puts away Gallows for win.

RESULT: The Hardy Boyz win via pinfall
THOUGHTS: The Hardy Boyz are always entertaining and hardcore in every match. The Bullet Club actually put together a good match and looked strong against the face team. They might be added to the title picture because of this if the Hardy/Sheamus and Cesaro feud gets a little stale.

*Commercial Break*

VIDEO PACKAGE: Goldust cuts a promo video. He quotes "Sunset Boulevard" and says he will shine on "the biggest stage". He says he will fly into the City of Angels and says next week that he invites R-Truth to "The Shattered Truth" premiere.

Elias Samson is once again performing in the ring to loud boos. He asks for silence as he attempts to tune his guitar. In the midst of tuning, Finn Balor's music plays. Balor makes his way to the ring. The two stare down each other in the ring. Elias backs out of the ring and exits up the ramp without saying a word.

THOUGHTS: Just when Elias Samson seems to be getting a serious push, he puts out a worthless promo such as this one.

*Commercial Break*

MATCH: Finn Balor vs Bo Dallas

Before the bell, Bo Dallas attacks Balor. Dallas goes on the offense and drops Finn hard. Balor seems dazed as the bell rings. Dallas goes back on the offense and drops Finn again with a clothesline. Bo wears down Finn off the apron. Outside the ring, Balor is launched into the barricade and gets a knee to the face. Dallas rolls Balor back into the ring for a two count. Balor gets a few counter moves in to change the momentum and get some rest. Finn goes on a big comeback, stomping on Dallas's chest and head. A hard clothesline and a Wicked Kick drops Bo and then Finn goes on a slaughter on the outside, slamming Bo into the barricades. In the ring, Balor lands a Slingblade and a running dropkick. From the top rope, Balor lands Coup de Grace  for the win.

RESULT: Finn Balor wins via pin
THOUGHTS: Bo Dallas's return was done greatly, but it most likely won't last. If Dallas is just going to be a jobber again, then that hurts Balor's credit even more since Dallas dominated him for most of the match.

As he promises something to the fans, Bray Wyatt interrupts from the big screen and calls Seth a hypocrite. Rollins says he is more than excited to face a "god".

MATCH: TJP vs Akira Tozawa

Akira starts the match by wearing by TJP. TJP counters and changes momentum. Akira goes back to wearing down TJP, but is countered again. Akira kicks out of pin attempt.

Neville interrupts the celebration chants and claims that if Akira keeps disrespecting him then he will be annihilated.

RESULT: Akira Tozawa wins via pinfall
THOUGHTS: Before this match, Akira Tozawa wasn't taken serious as a contender or with the Titus Brand. After quite a match, Akira and the Titus Brand have earn some credibility and respect.

The crowd chants "One More Time!" If he is man enough, Strowman calls out Reigns for Great Balls of Fire in an Ambulance Match.

RESULT: Samoa Joe wins via submission
THOUGHTS: The match started off slow, but it picked up quite well. It would have been worth being the main event. These two men put on a heck of a brawl and neither one looked to have the upper hand and seemed to be equals. Reigns has the potential to be the next big star, but falters at times with the WWE Universe. Strowman's return put this match over the top. Joe winning in the way he did does not take heat from either man. Strowman vs Reigns at Great Balls of Fire should be something special. If Reigns can win, then he might be over enough to be a serious contender for the championship. It will be tough for tonight's actual main event to top this.

*Commercial Break*

Maryse ends up storming off again and Ambrose goes for Dirty Deeds but ends up knocking Miz out of the ring instead. The bears attack Ambrose, who are actual Axel and Dallas.

Bayley hits the ring and attacks Emma and Bliss with pure aggression. Nia ends Bayley's attack, but gets help from James and Brooke. The faces stand tall over the heels.

RESULT: Match ends with DQ
THOUGHTS: The Raw Women's division is full of talent and the entire roster was in the ring at once tonight. Even Bayley returned to in-ring action and showed great fury. The only issue is that the title picture is just a little too crowded. Brooke and James are pretty much the only two non-serious contenders.

Kurt Angle's findings are advertised for next.

*Commercial Break*

PROMO (In-Ring): Kurt Angle's music hits and he comes to the rings with chants of "You Suck!". he gets right down to business. Angle says he wants to get to the bottom of the attacks and calls out Cass and Amore to the ring. The duo comes out to a giant pop from the crowd. Angle states he has talked to suspects all night and brings out The Revival first. Kurt also calls out Big Show to the ring as another suspect. Angle brings out facts about why Show could be the one behind it. Show is offended that Kurt suspects him and Show says that if he would come at them, he would come straight for their face. Show walks out of the ring and possibly out of Raw forever. Cass stands up and continues to blame Show. Kurt questions Revival for their return being around the same time as the attacks. Dash says they aren't perfect, but they are innocent. Angle backs up their alibis as being solid. Corey Graves stands up and says he can help out. Graves calls out Cass as never being treated by the medics at all. Graves also calls out Cass for competing last week without being cleared. Corey knows what happens to Cass last week and shows footage. On the big screen, Cass is shown staging the attack scene and faking the whole incident. Amore looks at Cass for confirmation about if he indeed attack him. Cass blasts out that he sure did do it. He calls out Amore for constantly running his mouth about gibberish. He says he has wanted to slap Amore multiple times and says he felt bad for Enzo because no one in the locker room likes him. Cass says he wanted to watch Amore suffer for all the crap he has had to put up with. When Cass felt threatened as a suspect, he wanted to see how smart Enzo was and blamed other people. Amore is called dead-weight and being the reason Cass is not rising in WWE as a singles competitor. Their team-up is officially ended with Cass knocking Amore out cold in front of Angle.

THOUGHTS: With constant rumors of Cass and Amore breaking up, this is not a huge surprise. It is a surprise that WWE actually went along with the break-up since the duo is over quite well with the WWE Universe. Big Cass will certainly start getting a push for a singles title. The addition information is that Big Show might have had his swan song for Raw and possibly WWE overall. Raw certainly lost a big tag team tonight, but it will be interesting to see how Cass and Amore move on from this.
