The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
WWE Raw Results
It’s the Hell in a Cell go-home Raw. The show guaranteed one championship match between Asuka and Lana. What else would get us hyped before WWE’s October pay-per-view? Here are the full results:
- Hurt Business def. Retribution
- AJ Styles def. Matt Riddle
- Asuka (c) def. Lana to retain the Raw Women’s Championship
- Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler def. Dana Brooke & Mandy Rose, Lacey Evans & Peyton Royce, and Riott Squad
- Kofi Kingston def. Sheamus
- Tucker & El Gran Gordo (Otis in a mask) def. Miz & Morrison
- Braun Strowman def. Keith Lee
One of the biggest developments from Raw this week: we finally got an answer about the SmackDown hacker! It turns out it was Mustafa Ali. He learned everyone’s secrets and found that WWE is teeming with greed and corruption. It truly doesn’t feel like Ali and Retribution are heels with promos like this.
The Firefly Funhouse also made it’s return, and there’s a new friend in the funhouse. Alexa Bliss made her debut on the show, and it looks like her creepy partnership with The Fiend is here to stay.

One for the Road:
24 years ago today we had The Undertaker take on Mankind in a Buried Alive match. Watch it for the craziness and one of the most iconic pay-per-view closes of all time.
