Rey noted that he does not know when he will be back from his triceps injury but cannot wait to put an end to Seth Rollins. Caruso was about to bring up Dominik’s match against Murphy tonight but Murphy quickly interrupted before Dominik could say anyting.
Murphy blamed Dominik for Rollins turning his back on him last week. Rey told Murphy that it wasn’t their fault that Murphy aligned himself with an “evil son of a bitch” like Rollins. Murphy told Dominik that he has a bright future in WWE but it will be the ultimate sacrifice to end Dominik’s career before it really starts. Murphy challenged Dominik to a Street Fight tonight and suggested that he has family ringside.

Murphy took a moment to stare the Mysterio family down and it cost him. Dominik beat Murphy down as the Mysterio family watched with kendo sticks. Murphy battled back and bounced Dominik’s head off the entrance ramp.

Aliyah and Angie then joined the party and the Mysterio family beat the hell out of Murphy with kendo sticks until the referee called the match. The Mysterio family continued to hit Murphy with kendo sticks as RAW went off the air.
Opinion: Dominik continues to impress in the ring and the Sunset Flip Powerbomb through the table was incredible. It seemed like Dominik Dijakovic and Mia Yim were a part of RETRIBUTION from the promo that aired tonight. I liked that Cedric Alexander joined The Hurt Business because it at least puts him alongside an interesting group. Overall, RAW was a decent show tonight and set up a couple matches next week to look forward to.
