Raw/Smackdown (7/24-25)

Raw was boring and Smackdown was like a shorter, better Battleground, so let's combine them this week.
The big happenings on Raw were the announcement of the Strwoman-Reigns-Joe-Lesnar Fatal Four Way at Summerslam we all knew was coming, and Bayley's surprise win over Sasha Banks to become the #1 Contender and face Bliss at Summerslam.

The latter happened in a way that clearly teased (yet again) a Sasha-Bayley breakup, but we'll see how it goes. Triple threat at Summerslam? Four-way with Nia Jax? Who knows.

Otherwise, pretty much treading water across the board, unless you care about Ambrose and Rollins, which you don't.

Smackdown, on the other hand, featured the return of Chris Jericho, who was presumably in the area. Jericho is looking more and more like Joey Ryan's long lost deadbeat dad (see above) and was involved in a Triple Threat that put the US Title back on AJ, who will then fight Owens for it again next week in basically a Sasha And Charlotte From Last Year situation. The match was way better than AJ-Owens from Battleground.

Also way better - Nakamura beating the SHIT out of Baron Corbin. Nakamura goes on to face Cena next week to see who fights Jinder at SummerSlam, and I want Nakamura to win, because if Cena wins, it means they're gonna have him beat Jinder at Summerslam and break Ric Flair's record there. What I want isn't what I'm gonna get.

The Usos laid out The New Day on the entrance ramp, we got no update on Breezango after their Blair Witch Mystery Beatdown during Battleground, the women are killing time in tag matches, Dillinger, Zayn, Kanellis, and English are killing time in tag matches, and there was no Randy Orton which means I loved this Smackdown.
