Here are 8 takeaways from this week’s episode of RAW:

8Alexa Bliss Hired A Security Team & They Failed Miserably 

Ronda Rousey kicked off this week’s episode of RAW and made her way down to the ring. Rousey spoke about Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart’s passing away. She stated that our fathers have been raising us to be the pillars of strength when they are gone. She told Natalya to stay strong and that everyone loves her. The crowd chanted “Nattie!” as Rousey said that Natalya was the first person to welcome her into WWE and she will be the first person to defend her while she is gone.

Rousey noted that Bliss cheated time and time again to defeat Natalya and vowed to take the RAW Women’s Championship away from her at WWE SummerSlam. Rousey then welcomed Ember Moon down to the ring. Alexa Bliss’ music hit and said that she is sick of Ronda kissing up to all these people. Bliss then called Rousey a spoiled brat and an overrated rookie. Alexa claimed that SummerSlam is going to be humiliating for Rousey and then poked fun at the angry face she makes every week on RAW.

Alexa blasted RAW GM Kurt Angle for protecting everyone besides her. Alexa added that she spoke to Constable Corbin and he suggested that she hire her own personal security to protect her from Rousey. A security team then surrounded Bliss as she warned Rousey to not even think about trying anything tonight.

Bliss shoved Ember Moon into the turnbuckle and then Rousey hopped into the ring but the security team got in her way. Ronda started taking out the security team with Arm Drags and then the remaining member of the team took off running. Ronda then launched Alicia Fox out of the ring as Bliss retreated up the entrance ramp.
