The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

WWE Raw Results

Another week, another Raw from the WWE Performance Center. This week had Asuka face off against Bayley Two-Belts, and had Randy Orton square off against Kevin Owens. Plus we got the second edition of Raw Underground, and RETRIBUTION showed up. Were they cooler this time? The answer may surprise you (it’s no). Here are the results for Raw this week:

  • Seth Rollins def. Humberto Carrillo
  • Angelo Dawkins def. Andrade
  • Bianca Belair def. Zelina Vega
  • Shelton Benjamin def. Apollo Crews
  • Cedric Alexander, Ricochet & Viking Raiders def. Akira Tozawa and some ninjas
  • R-Truth def. Akira Tozawa (c) to become 24/7 Champion
  • Peyton Royce def. Liv Morgan
  • Asuka def. Bayley, earning a Raw Women’s Championship match against Sasha Banks at Summerslam
  • Randy Orton def. Kevin Owens

Welcome to the WWE, Dominick. El Hijo Del Mysterio officially signed as a member of the WWE roster. He was greeted by his Summerslam opponent Seth Rollins and some kendo sticks. Mysterio looked brutal after this assault, but it was a great way to get some fan sympathy for him.

Another legend has been taken down by Randy Orton. This time – his mentor and friend Ric Flair. We all knew eventually Orton would turn on Flair and put him out to pasture. It happened tonight and made Orton an absolute jerk. Orton is on another level with this run, and it just may be the right call to give this man the WWE Championship.

Retribution was on Raw last night. They put a cinder block through a window. This debut has been boring.

Raw Underground Results

That’s right – we’re doing some Raw Underground results now. If WWE wants us to take it seriously, we’re in. We’ll cover the results and see who shows up in the Underground.

  • Riddick Moss def. Cal Bloom
  • Arturo Ruas def. Unknown competitor
  • Dabbo Kato def. Unknown competitor
  • Shayna Baszler takes out three female competitors

Baszler’s appearance on Raw Underground was spoiled by some insiders, but it was still impressive to see. She should run the Underground and take on all comers. Baszler can be built up in this venue before challenging for the title again.

In honor of the second week of Raw Underground, Javier and I started the Raw Underground Tournament on Crossbody Of Work’s Twitter. Check out the first round matches and vote on our Twitter thread. My money’s on George Mizanin winning the whole thing.

Goldberg Takes Shot at Roman Reigns

Some people just can’t let things go. In an interview show called Have a Beer With Obie, Goldberg took a shot at Roman Reigns. The former WCW star had been shaded in a tweet by Reigns earlier this year in regards to the pad on the stage that Reigns punches during his entrance. Reigns’ tweet is here:

Goldberg, who was scheduled to face Reigns at Wrestlemania, apparently didn’t forget (h/t WrestlingInc for the transcription):

“Roman, you are a joke, first of all. Second of all, when he ragged on me about headbutting the doors and stuff, I never really explained my whole thought process on that. For you guys to get the character that you got, I had to do certain things. One of them is to headbutt the door.”

Goldberg also took a dig at Reigns alma mater Georgia Tech, since Goldberg was a Georgia Bulldog. I wonder where punching a glass window of a limousine fits into the “Goldberg character”.

One for the Road:

We were saddened to hear about the passing of wrestling legend James “Kamala” Harris at the age of 70 this weekend. Kamala was a true character of the wrestling business, and our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans. There is a GoFundMe to support the funeral expenses for Harris and to support his family that can be found here.
