WWE Raw Results - August 30, 2021
2 title matches and more
WWE visited the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for the August 30 edition of Monday Night Raw. Multiple advertised matches in Bobby Lashley vs. Sheamus, John Morrison vs. The Miz and Eva Marie vs. Doudrop did not take place on the show, but WWE found suitable replacements for two of those matches.
The company opened the show with Damian Priest's open challenge and the segment was used to set up two title matches for later in the episode, a United States Championship match between Priest, Drew McIntyre and Sheamus, and RK-Bro vs. Bobby Lashley & MVP for the Raw Tag Team Title.
In the first title bout, Priest, McIntyre and Sheamus produced a fantastic 21-minute match. The Scottish Warrior thought he had the match won down the stretch but Priest caught him with the Reckoning for the surprise 1-2-3.
RK-Bro and Lashley & MVP then faced off in the main event. Former champions AJ Styles and Omos were at ringside for the 12-minute contest and RK-Bro were able to fend them off before Riddle decked MVP with a Floating Bro to retain the gold. RK-Bro then stood tall to end Raw as The All Mighty tried to take out Riddle after the match but he ended up eating an RKO from Orton.
Nia Jax also picked up a win over Raw Women's Champion Charlotte Flair in a match that appeared to briefly become a shoot. After Jax dropped Charlotte on her head, the two women threw some stiff shots before The Irresistible Force Powerbombed Flair for the victory.
Elsewhere on Raw, Rhea Ripley defeated Shayna Baszler, AJ Styles vanquished Xavier Woods, The Viking Raiders overcame Veer and Jinder Mahal, Karrion Kross pinned Humberto Carrillo, Omos defeated John Morrison after Johnny Drip Drip's match with The Miz fell through, and Doudrop attacked Eva Marie before their bout which resulted in the referee ruling that Marie was unable to compete.
