WWE fans witnessed exciting matches in the latest episode of Raw, following the recent brand split that saw wrestlers being divided for Raw and SmackDown Live. Three wrestlers from NXT were drafted for the two shows and and one of them was in action in Pittsburgh on 25 July.
There was a need to create a brand new main title at Raw as Dean Ambrose – who was drafted for SmackDown Live – is the current WWE heavyweight title. So to create a new title at Raw, Bálor and Roman Reigns squared off against each other. But, before the two wrestlers could fight they had to undergo a four-way fatal match. Bálor was pitted against Cesaro, Rusev, and Kevin Owens, while Reigns fought against Chris Jericho, Sami Zayn and Sheamus. Bálor emerged victorious and now gets an opportunity to become the new Raw champion when he fights Seth Rollins for the title at SummerSlam.
