Damian Priest defeated Drew McIntyre and Sheamus in a triple threat match to retain his United States Championship title.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has moved on from this month’s SummerSlam and have started preparing and building new storylines for September’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view event and the Monday night WWE Raw episode was the first step in that direction. It was a chaotic night in the WWE universe as two title matches – United States Championship and Raw Tag Team Championship – headlined the show. However, much to fans expectations, no titles changed hands.

The show started with WWE champion Bobby Lashley, who wants to become a double champion by answering and winning Damian Priest’s United States Championship open challenge. Even though Lashley’s wish to take on Priest was not fulfilled, he had a successful outing as he teamed up with MVP to take on Raw tag champions Riddle and Randy Orton in the main event.
