WWE Raw spoilers from Manchester, England

Submitted by Stephen Lyon

In addition to tonight's SmackDown, this coming Monday's episode of Raw was taped at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England today.

- Vic Joseph and Jerry Lawler were the announce team for Raw.

- Women's Tag Team Champions Asuka & Kairi Sane defeated Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair

The finish saw Lynch distracted and pinned by Asuka after Shayna Baszler came out of the crowd and was attacked by Bayley. Bayley attacked Lynch after the match.

Bayley was not over as a heel at all. The crowd loudly sang the Hey Bayley song.

- Drew McIntyre defeated Sin Cara

Carolina wasn't with Sin Cara here.

- R-Truth vs. The Singh Brothers (24/7 Champion Samir Singh & Sunil Singh) ended when Truth chased the Singhs to the back

The crowd hated this and booed. Nothing backstage was shown on the screen.

- Seth Rollins came out for a promo and was booed out of the building. He issued an open challenge, which was accepted by WALTER.

- Seth Rollins defeated WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER by DQ

The disqualification came when Imperium interfered. Very disappointing. There were loud WALTER chants, but he didn’t get a chance to show much. The Street Profits and Kevin Owens ran in for the save and this turned into an eight-man tag.

- Seth Rollins, The Street Profits & Kevin Owens defeated Imperium (WWE United Kingdom Champion WALTER, Marcel Barthel, Fabian Aichner & Alexander Wolfe)

Fun match. The crowd was very into it and Owens was the most over. Montez Ford over-hit a flip dive to the outside and nearly overshot the announce desk and almost landed on his head in a scary spot.

Rollins pinned Wolfe after Owens hit a stunner. Huge pop.

- A backstage segment saw Randy Orton agree to team with Ricochet & Humberto Carrillo to face The O.C. That came after The O.C. were making fun of Ricochet and Carrillo.

- Andrade defeated Cedric Alexander

- Lana came out for an interview. The crowd absolutely hated this segment. She revealed that she first had sex with Bobby Lashley seven weeks ago but has now discovered she is nine weeks pregnant. The father is Rusev, and she isn’t happy about this.

Rusev came out and wanted an explanation. The crowd chanted "Daddy’s home." Lashley came out, attacked Rusev, and left him laying. The crowd booed and chanted "boring." This segment will need major sound sweetening.

- Erick Rowan defeated Soner Durson

This was a quick squash. Rowan came to the ring with a mystery burlap bag and gave it to the announcers to look after.

- Raw Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders defeated Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster

Quick match. The Brits got some offense in and the chance to show off their high-flying moves.

- Ricochet, Humberto Carrillo & Randy Orton defeated The O.C. (United States Champion AJ Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson)

The crowd was dead. Good match. Orton didn’t get along with Ricochet and teased giving him the RKO. Instead, he gave it to Styles and Carrillo moonsaulted Styles for the pin.

- In the dark main event segment, The Fiend beat up all three members of The O.C. They had the red lighting on during this. The bell never rang, so it wasn’t a match. The Fiend got the biggest babyface pop of the night.

The crowd was lively for the SmackDown tapings but dead for most of Raw.
