WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Retribution Returns, More RAW Underground Set

Last week, both of WWE's shows saw some major shifts with two new additions to its programming. The first is the introduction of RAW Underground and the reveal of this new Retribution faction.

Tonight's Monday Night RAW will see the second week of Shane McMahon's RAW Underground. After a week where wrestling fans were divided over the Fight Club-esque matches, viewers will see how the WWE will take this new direction. With MVP and the rest of the Hurt Business taking over, what can we expect? And who will be fighting next?

Retribution, the mysterious group that set a generator on fire last Monday and took apart the Performance Center on Friday Night SmackDown are set to make another appearance tonight. Will we learn more about this group and who is under the masks? Or will fans and the WWE superstars continue to be left in the dark about it?

Kevin Owens challenged Randy Orton last week after an impassioned talk with Ric Flair. With Orton preparing for his WWE Championship match against Drew McIntyre at SummerSlam, can KO pick up an impressive victory or is Owens destined to be the "Legend Killer's" next victim?

Former RAW Women's Champion Asuka is looking to recapture the gold at SummerSlam. However, she'll have to defeat Bayley to get to Sasha Banks tonight. Bayley cost Asuka the title two weeks ago by attacking Kairi Sane and forcing Asuka to choose to save her friend as opposed to winning the match, and now "The Empress of Tomorrow" will have a chance to get some revenge on the "Role Model." Can Bayley defeat Asuka and keep her from the RAW Women's Championship picture, or does Sasha have a date for SummerSlam?

Montez Ford of The Street Profits was poisoned last week and while Bianca Belair believes it was Zelina Vega and her crew who did it, Vega says she has nothing to do with it. Will we learn more about Ford's condition and who was behind it?

Here's everything that happened on the August 10 episode of Monday Night RAW.

The next episode of RAW Underground goes down on 'Monday Night RAW' WWE


Contract Signing

  • Samoa Joe announces both Seth Rollins and Dominik Mysterio. Mysterio comes out with a kendo stick, while Seth has Murphy
  • Rollins calls Mysterio a coward for coming out with a kendo stick. Samoa Joe agrees and says he will hold it for him with a smile. Joe says this whole situation is sad because Rollins got "caught in his own feelings" and turned on the fans. And it's sad that he gave Dominik no other choice but to fight him.
  • Rollins says that everyone had a choice, including Rey Mysterio and Aleister Black. Seth is the only one who didn't have a choice. He tried to be the good guy and be the one they cheered, but they turned on him and he had no choice in becoming the "Monday Night Messiah" and doing things for the greater good. He asks when will it be enough?
  • Dominik interrupts and says it will never be enough. He says that Aleister and Rey's confidence isn't the same. Seth changed the lives of good men for the worst. He says that Seth claims to fight for the greater good, but he's only fighting for himself.
  • Seth says that he is the greatest wrestler of his generation and says that he'll let Dominik bring the kendo stick to their match at SummerSlam. He can use whatever he wants so there is no excuse when he ends Dominik's career before it starts.
  • Both men sign their contracts including Dominik who signs the contract to become an official WWE Superstar. Seth congratulates Mysterio and tells him to get out of his ring because he has a match with Humberto Carrillo.

Seth Rollins (with Murphy) vs Humberto Carrillo (with Dominik Mysterio)

  • Rollins wins via pinfall after a Stomp
  • The finish was set up when Murphy got on the apron when Carrillo was going for a moonsault. Mysterio hits Murphy down with the kendo stick and when Carrillo goes for his move, Rollins gets his leg up.
  • After the bell, Murphy tackles Mysterio and he and Rollins beat down Dominik in the ring. Dominik does get to tackle Rollins, but the numbers game is too much. Seth gets the kendo stick and continuously hits Dominik with it, even taking off his shirt so the two heels can hit him with kendo sticks.

  • After returning to commercial, Orton says he has every right to be upset with Flair but he can't. He says this match with Kevin Owens was unnecessary and was only happening because of Flair's ego.
  • No matter what he can't be mad at Ric. Orton talks about a time in the early 2000s when Flair bailed him out of trouble. But Flair has become a liability. Orton says that Ric took Randy under his wing because he wanted him to be the son he never had. He says that Ric Flair today is not the same one that he and everyone respected. This Ric Flair is old and is a "whore for the spotlight."
  • Ric Flair takes the mic and says that he takes this personally. He agrees with Orton that he wants the spotlight. Flair says that he is here because he wants to see Orton win the WWE Championship at SummerSlam and eventually beat his record. He says all he wants is for Orton to be better and do better.
  • Orton hugs Flair and when Ric tries to get out of the ring, Randy low blows him--the Retribution lights flickers again here. Orton gets ready for a punt, and just as he's about to the lights go out and Flair is lying on the floor.
  • Drew McIntyre runs in and Orton rolls out. McIntyre tends to Flair and calls Orton an "evil son of a b****."
