WWE RAW was a loaded show in terms of drama and high-octane action. Last night, RAW started the build-up to July’s Money in the Bank event. Cody Rhodes had grabbed the headlines following his inspired performance to defeat Seth Rollins at WWE Hell in a Cell. Rhodes had wrestled despite excruciating pain because of a torn pectoral tendon. Consequently, Rhodes kicked off the show with an emotional in-ring promo in which he got deafening cheers from the crowd. Seth Rollins soon joined him in the ring and said that Rhodes had earned his respect after fighting valiantly at Hell in a Cell.
However, Rollins ambushed Rhodes from behind as he was walking up the entrance ramp and making his exit. After hitting Rhodes with a sledgehammer, Rollins ripped off his rival’s shirt before stomping on his torn pectoral muscle.
Therefore, the headline story coming out of Monday’s show is that Cody Rhodes is being written off television after a brutal attack from Seth Rollins. Rhodes has suffered a tear of a pectoral tendon and needs to have surgery to repair the injury.
Apart from this terrific opening segment, Raw featured a packed match card that had some blockbuster matches.
