WWE RAW Results - August 13, 2018
We are live from Greensboro, North Carolina and Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring.

Ronda starts off by mentioning the passing of Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart. She says any loss is heartbreaking but to lose a father... fathers are our pillars of strength in a hostile world. A reassurance that everything will be okay. When that reassurance is ripped away, we have to face the fact that our fathers have been raising us to be the pillars of strength when they are gone. She tells Nattie to stay strong. She says that we all love her.

Ronda says that Nattie was the first person to welcome her and she will be the first to defend her in her absence. Alexa cheated to beat Natalya time and time again.

Alexa says she is sick and tired of hearing about Ronda and seeing that look on your face when you come out. Alexa says she can do that look too.

Alexa says she will not give Ronda the chance to hurt her the way that Ronda did to Alicia last week. Alexa says that she talked to Baron Corbin and he suggested that she get her own security. Alexa says these men are highly trained so don't try to do anything.

Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman says leave this place better than I found it. That is something he tells himself every day. The truth is he is never going to accomplish that goal with Brock Lesnar here. That means that it is time for Brock Lesnar to go. Roman says he is sick and tired of hearing about him, talking about him, looking at him so it ends on Sunday at SummerSlam. At SummerSlam, he is taking back his Universal Championship. Roman says he will send Brock so far back into the UFC that Brock's head will be up Dana White's ass.

Paul Heyman interrupts and he says it is a NEW DAY, yes it is. Paul says if he would steal a line from someone on Smackdown, he would steal a line from The Usos because they are the future of the tag team division. Speaking of the future of a division in WWE, Paul says he is laying his eyes on the number one contender for the Universal Title, Roman Reigns.

Roman says Paul must be confused. Last week, Paul was able to cry on cue so Roman says he is looking forward to seeing what Paul will do tonight.

Paul says this is your week, your week of history. Why wait until Sunday to make history. You can start making history tonight. Paul says he almost let something slip out last week. He mentioned there was an 'unless'. That unless is having Paul Heyman telling you each and every one of Brock Lesnar's deep and dirty secrets. Paul says that Roman thinks he can beat Brock Lesnar. With Paul Heyman in your corner, you will walk into Sunday knowing you will beat Brock Lesnar and that is a spoiler.

Roman says he already knows this. He beat Brock Lesnar in Saudi Arabia. Brock wouldn't have made it out of that cage if he didn't spear him through it. It would have ended quicker if it wasn't for Paul.

Paul says guilty as charged and he offers no excuses. Paul says it was because of him. He hopes that the sins of the father will not be visited upon his children. Paul says he is a visionary and he can see the future. One week from tonight, after you slay the beast . . . side by side. Paul does his opening promo but with Roman Reigns as his client.

Roman says Paul is trying, but it is not good enough. Roman tells Paul that he was groomed at a very young age for that. He was taught by his father to swim with sharks in this business. He was taught to know which ones were drowning because they are the most dangerous ones. Roman says Paul is not worth saving and he wishes Paul the best in his future endeavors.

Paul says he is drowning with the knowledge from driving in the car with Afa and Sika. Your father taught Paul. Paul gives Roman a document and he tells Roman to give him his answer on Sunday at SummerSlam.

Roman accepts the document and Roman looks at it.

Paul suddenly sprays Roman in the face with something, perhaps pepper spray. Reigns has been blinded as he stumbles back into the corner. Heyman leaves the ring to boos. A trainer checks on Reigns but quickly retreats when the music of The Beast hits.

Reigns still can't see as Lesnar marches to the ring, smiling. Lesnar drives big knees into Reigns in the corner. Lesnar with more big knees, driving Reigns to the mat in the middle of the ring.

Back from the break and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle is in the ring for a SummerSlam contract signing. Angle first addresses the heinous attack on Roman Reigns by WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. Angle says the trainers report that Reigns will be able to compete on Sunday and he's not going to suspend or strip Lesnar because he wants Reigns to bring the title back to RAW each week as we deserve. Angle says Lesnar is the worst champion in history. The music interrupts and out comes Drew McIntyre with WWE Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler.

Ziggler and McIntyre run Angle down for slacking at his job. Angle says he was just about to introduce them. Ziggler wants to know if he's defending on Sunday or not. Angle goes to introduce Seth Rollins but the music doesn't start. He tries again but no music. Ziggler says Rollins isn't coming out and Angle knew it all along. Ziggler tells Angle to go ahead and call it. Ziggler and McIntyre continue with shots on Rollins and Angle. McIntyre says believe it or not, they do respect Rollins. He talks about why their movement came to RAW and says they respect Rollins because he fights and made them work hard but in the end, Rollins was the architect of his own downfall. Ziggler says Rollins pushed himself too hard for the fans. He busted his ass every night for the WWE Universe and that is a one-way street, brother.

Ziggler goes on about how the fans turned their backs on him and will do the same to Rollins, then the next guy and the next guy. Ziggler says the vicious cycle will never end because of the fans. He also talks about how the fans never stick around through the hard times but now for the first time, someone actually has his back and doesn't just ride his coattails to collect a paycheck. He goes on praising McIntyre and running his mouth with the typical Ziggler promo. Ziggler tells Angle to hand him the contract so they can officially make it a forfeit for Rollins. Fans chant "burn it down" as Ziggler signs the contract.

Ziggler hands the contract back but the music hits and out comes Rollins to a big pop. Rollins apologizes for being late and for the fans having to sit through Ziggler's promo. Rollins admits he's been here for a while but wanted to wait until Ziggler signed the contract because he was afraid Ziggler would change his mind when he heard what Rollins has to say. Rollins says he was dealing with travel issues but they weren't for him. He mentions the contract clause where it says he can have someone in his corner at SummerSlam, saying it was put there for a reason. He's tired of dealing with them 2-on-1 and says since The Scottish Psychopath will be in Ziggler's corner, he figured he should have The Lunatic in his. Fans pop and really get loud when the music hits for Dean Ambrose.

Ambrose looks to be in great shape and makes his way to the stage. Ziggler and Rollins toss the contract signing table out of the ring to prepare for a fight. Ambrose and Rollins rush the ring as a brawl breaks out. Ziggler gets dumped. McIntyre takes a superkick from Rollins and a Dirty Deeds from Ambrose as Ziggler looks on from the outside.
