A new era for WWE began last night with the first Raw episode since Vince McMahon's retirement.
The show, which emanated from Madison Square Garden in New York City, took place on the same day it was announced that Paul "Triple H" Levesque is WWE's new head of creative. It was also Raw's go-home show for this weekend's SummerSlam pay-per-view.
McMahon's retirement wasn't directly mentioned on Raw, though Roman Reigns made reference to it by telling Theory that his "daddy's not here anymore."
Reigns was in action in the main event, teaming with The Usos to defeat Riddle & The Street Profits. Reigns pinned Riddle to get the victory. There was then an angle where Rollins attacked Riddle and stomped him into the steel steps ahead of Saturday's PPV.
Plus, Rey Mysterio celebrated the 20th anniversary of his WWE debut, and there were brawls between Bianca Belair & Becky Lynch and Logan Paul & The Miz.
