Logan Paul appeared on WWE Raw this week seeking an answer to his SummerSlam challenge.

Here’s a brief recap of the match results: 

Bianca Belair defeated Carmella via pinfall to retain the Raw Women’s Championship 

Damian Priest defeated Rey Mysterio via pinfall 

Seth Rollins defeated Ezekiel via pinfall after hitting the Stomp 

Angelo Dawkins defeated Omos via DQ

– The Street Profits defeated Omos and MVP via DQ following interference from The Usos 

AJ Styles defeated Theory via countout 

Alexa Bliss, Asuka and Dana Brooke defeated Doudrop, Nikki A.S.H. and Tamina via pinfall following 24/7 title shenanigans

Moment of the night: Logan Paul confronts The Miz 

Logan Paul comes for The Miz on Monday Night Raw

Logan Paul came for the Miz on Monday Night Raw, finally getting the answer to his challenge. The Miz attempted to teach the rookie a lesson with Ciampa coming to his aid.

This was an effective segment that properly created interest in a match between Logan and Miz at SummerSlam.  

No matter what you may think about the popular YouTuber, there’s no denying he’s good at building anticipation over his fights. That was no different while the Paul brother stood across the ring from Miz. 

I will point out, however, that if the intent is to make him a babyface in the eyes of WWE fans, ala Bad Bunny, then touting how he revolutionized being able to have a social media career isn’t the way to do it.

That will only make him more of a heel.

Additional highlights:

It’s official! 

Becky Lynch will challenge for Raw Women’s title at SummerSlam against Bianca Belair after “The EST of WWE” successfully defended her championship against Carmella on Raw.

Kevin Owens returned to television this week for an episode of The KO Show with Riddle

During the segment, KO proposed a team with the former tag champ, but got turned down before the whole thing descended into chaos.

Seth Rollins attacks Riddle during an intense episode of The KO Show

Seth Rollins bested Riddle and Kevin Owens on Monday Night Raw during the latest episode of The KO Show.

Now, in the wake of all this, I’m wondering if Kevin might help Riddle at SummerSlam as a way of showing he truly wants to be in a team. It would be a great way to keep both of them occupied for awhile.

For a segment-by-segment breakdown of the show with more of my thoughts, listen to the Friday Night SmackDown Roundup podcast in the “Out of Character” feed on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
