The show opens up with a look at the tag team championship main event match. 

Commentary: Vince McMahon and Jerry "The King" Lawler 

King Mabel vs Nick Barbary:

The bell rings and here we go. Mabel uses his power advantage to singke handedly shove Barbary into the corner then lays in the kicks to the midsection. Mabel then drives him face first into the top turnbuckle twice before hammer throwing him into the opposite corner and nearly decapitating him with a clothesline. Mabel then slams him down to the mat twice and looks to punch him but Barbary blocks the attempt and looks to fight back with punches to the King. Barbary foolishly attempts an irish whip but Mabel counters and flips him single handedly across the ring. The finish of the match sees Mabel crush Barbary in the corner with a splash then a belly to belly suplex for the pinfall victory. After the match King Mabel declares that not only will he be the King he will also be the WWF Champion.

Winner: King Mabel via Belly to Belly Suplex 

After the match we get another vignette package from Fatu who is looking to make a difference in his community and in the WWF. Fatu will be in action next week. 

We then go backstage as Jerry Lawler interviews Shawn Michaels. Jerry announces that Shawn will be facing Sid for the WWF Intercontinental Championship. Jerry also seems to be scooting around the fact that he wants to challenge Shawn to a match.

Bam Bam Bigelow vs Bob Cook:

The bell rings and here we go. They lock up and Cook rakes the eyes of Bam Bam and continues the attack with kicks and punches with Bam Bam up against the ropes. Bam Bam is able to fight off Cook and urish whip him into the ropes but Cook puts on tbe brakes and slides to the floor. Bam Bam then grabs him by the hair and pulls him back into the ring the hard way. Bam Bam then toses Cook halfway across the ring twice. Bam Bam looks to continue the onslaught but the referee backs him up which allows for Cook to get a cheap shot on him. The finish of the match sees slam Cook to the mat then climbs to the top for a diving headbutt for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Bam Bam Bigelow via Diving Headbutt

Skip vs Major Yates:

The bell rings and here we go. They lock uo and Skip knees Yates in the midsection then hammers away on him. Skip then stomps on Yates multiple times before turnin his back to do some jumping jacks. Yates takes advantage of Skip turning his back to roll him up for a nearfall. Skip then kicks Yates in the midsection and irish whips him into the opposite turnbuckle and yells at the camera that he's out to get Barry Horowitz. Yates puts on the brakes and leaps over Skip as he goes into the turnbuckle. Yates then irish whips Skip into the opposite turnbuckle and follows up with a monkey flip then an armdrag takedown.

My Take: A

This was a really great show as they build towards SummerSlam. I'm not too happy about the main event for the ppv but the card is shaping up real nicely. I also like the fact that RAW has some good secondary feuds. Bam Bam had a good showing but seems to be stuck in limbo right now with no real direction. The main event tag team title match was really good match
