The WWE was under scrutiny for the past few months due to unwanted and boring storylines but this week’s Monday night Raw was more packed than anyone’s expectation. In terms of WWE Draft, one saw a couple of changes in the Raw and SmackDown locker rooms.
In terms of the WWE Raw results, champion The New Day managed to defend his Raw Tag Team Championship title after beating Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.
The round pretty much happened the way it was expected. Raw ended up selecting “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt with the night’s first pick. Another major change was The Street Profits being drafted from Raw to SmackDown. All other remained on their respective brands.

Meanwhile Monday Night, Champion The New Day defeated Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler via pinfall. The outing was more intense than what would have possibly been predicted by football fans. The stellar moves from both sides kept everyone glued.
Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose defeated Lana and Natalya via pinfall. What is more interesting here apart from the outing itself is how Lana cried out loud. This happened after Natalya called her stupid. She also said that it was not working out anymore, mentioning that she was done with Lana.
Kevin Owens defeated Aleister Black via pinfall in a no disqualification match. Things turned in Kevin’s favour. AJ Styles defeated Jeff Hardy and Seth Rollins via pinfall. This happened after Hardy was laid out by a chairshot. This was done by Elias. Before the interference, the match was going on quite smoothly.
