WWE RAW AUGUST 23, 2021 .— This Monday a new episode of Monday Night Raw was held, the first after SummerSlam 2021, and in the stellar, Riddle defeated AJ Styles and the RK-Bro remained standing after celebrating obtaining the Raw Couples Championship.
THE BEST AND WORST OF WWE RAW AUGUST 23, 2021
Here we present the best and the worst of WWE Raw, in order falling:
► 3- Too late for Karrion Kross
Karrion Kross lost the NXT Championship at the last TakeOver, which means he will be full time on Raw, where his last two bouts have been landslide victories against Jeff Hardy and Ricochet. That’s how it should have been from the start But given what happened in the last month with Kross, people don’t seem to care now.
► 2- Mansoor vs. Jinder mahal
It was not the worst fight of the night, but neither Mansoor nor Jinder Mahal are among the great exponents in the ring; however, we believe they were able to do much more than what we saw. Given the result, It seems that the series of confrontations involving both teams will continue.
► 1- Logan paul
Logan Paul was announced as the WWE Raw celebrity guest, but audiences just don’t want him. He was booed at SummerSlam, and he was also booed on Raw. It honestly didn’t add more value to the Moist TV segment, and the split between Miz and Morrison didn’t even need it, since they could have invited Xavier Woods and achieved the same or better result during the segment.
► 3- Rhea Ripley and Nikki ASH, an interesting duo
Despite the fact that 48 hours before they were rivals, Nikki ASH and Rhea Ripley wrestled again as a team and they looked better than a week ago. We know Rhea’s strength, and Nikki is good at whatever role she is given. We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks, but this pair may well be an interesting addition to the tag team, as Charlotte Flair works with someone else.
► 2- The Miz betrayed John Morrison finally
After the differences that occurred in recent weeks, the betrayal of The Miz finally happened – although for a moment it was thought otherwise due to the fact that Morrison felt cheated. In any case, Miz and Morrison had already done almost everything together, it made no sense for them to remain a team, and the rivalry between them broke out, giving them something to do in the following weeks.
► 1- Riddle vs. AJ Styles
This was awesome. Great encounter with intense action. It’s hard to remember when Riddle or AJ Styles had a bad encounter, where both used a good part of their arsenal. Orton and Omos also fulfilled their role outside the ring very well, adding something else to the equation.
