United States Champion Kevin Owens thought he was out of the woods when he and Samoa Joe attacked Chris Jericho before Raw’s planned tag team main event, but all that did was clear new Raw General Manager Kurt Angle to summon a returning Finn Bálor (!!!) to take the G.O.A.T.’s place, giving Seth Rollins a fresh partner and placing Owens and Joe square in the path of a Superstar hungry for redemption.
In other words: Kevin? Bad move, maaaannnn.
Rollins handled the load in the early goings of the match, which featured four former NXT Champions and two former Universal Champions. The Architect unleashed a high-risk offense that did damage to Owens and Joe at the expense of his own well-being. That left him no recourse but to tag in Bálor after being picked apart by Joe and Owens, and Finn quickly put the match away, spiking “The Face of America” with a Coup de Grace after Rollins helped free him from the Coquina Clutch.
Welcome back, Finn. See you (next) Monday.
