WWE Monday Night RAW results from 5/8/17

Here are the results from tonight’s taped episode of WWE Monday Night RAW in the UK (courtesy of Kings Of Kayfabe):



— There was no pyro or opening video, but rather we see Dean Ambrose on the phone in the backstage arena. He was on the phone with Kurt Angle. Ambrose hung up and asked a stagehand to play his music and then he headed to the ring. He cut a promo about how Angle was not in attendance and made him the acting general manager of the night. This led to The Miz walking out to the ring and stated that he would be the co-general manager for the night after saying that he spoke with Stephanie McMahon. Ambrose offered Miz a handshake. This led to Braun Strowman walking out and said that he wants Roman Reigns and once he’s done with him he wants Brock Lesnar. Kalisto walked out and demanded another match with Strowman. Strowman said that he could beat Kalisto with one arm. Ambrose booked the match for later in the show. Miz congratulated Ambrose on ending Kalisto’s career. Ambrose announced Miz vs. Finn Balor for later in the show.
