WWE Monday Night Raw results 8/21/17

Here are your quick and dirty, editorial-free WWE Raw results for August 21, 2017.

With SummerSlam in the books, it wasn't entirely clear what No Mercy would look like until we got to see the events of Monday Night Raw. Eight man brawled, but only one team could go home with the victory as Cedric Alexander stole a win last night on RAW. This was a weapons-heavy match featuring kendo sticks, steel chairs, and even a shopping cart.

The Face That Runs the Place said Angle asked him at SummerSlam if he would come to Raw. The injury looked legitimate. That can only mean one thing-they're scouting for their next big NXT signing, which all but confirms that we are getting another Superstar Shakeup sometime soon. She was interrupted by Nia Jax, who promised to make #GiveEmmaCPR trend on Twitter after their match. One Samoan Drop later, and Emma's lesson was driven home and then some on RAW. Before the match, Elias sang a song talking about how terrible R-Truth is. The new women's championship hit a sharp shooter on Naomi to win the title. Tonight at RAW, Miz gave what was essentially a worked shoot and it was done with a wise crowd who booed Cena and Reigns.

Lesnar and Reigns were the only two left in the ring. He's kneecapped his product for years by insisting upon Reigns as the focal point, but in the meantime he's continued to push Lesnar as a human Hulk, and has lately let Strowman and (to a much lesser degree) Samoa Joe get over as legitimate monsters. Alexander scored the pin for his team after hitting the Lumbar Check on Tony Nese.

The match that likely will not get the credit it deserved was Finn Balor, in full demon king paint, being put over in a big way by a visibly shaken Bray Wyatt.

Korean troops start drills amid N. Korea standoff
Pyongyang calls the 11-day drills a "reckless" invasion rehearsal that could trigger the "uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war". Yesterday, North Korea warned the U.S. that it will be "pouring gasoline on fire" by going ahead with the games.

[Park Sang-seek] North Korean nuclear issue
Tension over North Korea has risen substantially in recent weeks, as the USA and North Korea engaged in a " war of words ". What worries him is a situation where North Korea feels it's about to be attacked and worries it can't win a war.

The UK has a reason to cheer too after Neville regained the Cruiserweight Championship against Akira Tozawa. He asked for the match because he wanted to show that he belongs. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose provided just enough Shield nostalgia en route to beating Sheamus and Cesaro (whose sprint to retrieve and destroy a beach ball from the crowd was more memorable than a few of the matches).

Rusev sneak attacks Orton from behind before the match begins, but the second the bell rings, Orton hits an RKO "outta nowhere" to win in about 15 seconds.

It was a hard-fought match that consisted of champion Alexa Bliss controlling the majority, but she wouldn't hold onto her title.

ALEXA BLISS tapped out to Sasha Banks to concede her Raw women's championship at SummerSlam.

They'll have a rematch next week on RAW. Bálor won a competitive match following a Coup De Grace. A Superman punch from Reigns on Lesnar sent the champion out of the ring, and another Superman punch leveled Strowman for just a moment.
