Live results for WWE Raw 7/25/16

The road to Summerslam begins as the aftermath of the draft & Battleground settles. We know that Commissioner Stephanie & GM Foley will be addressing the roster and the Universe live to start the show. Keep it here for all the latest as we begin the route to Brooklyn in 4 weeks.

We get a recap of Ambrose's win last night to keep the WWE Title and head it over to Smackdown.

We open with a brand new video package, a brand new Raw theme and a brand new logo... Logo is crap but the track is good and the video intro is good as well... and the announce table is by the tron area again it seems!! Cole & Saxton and joined by Corey Graves for the first time.

Foley welcomes everyone to Raw and the start of the new era. He brings out the roster onto the stage. Foley says he'll work with all the talents to get the best out of them. Stephanie says that after what happened last night with Dean taking the WWE title to Smackdown, there needs to be a world champion on the Raw brand. After deliberation aplenty, there will be 2 Fatal 4-way matches with the winners going one-on-one in the main event. Whoever wins that faces Seth Rollins at Summerslam to crown the new Raw World Champ. The new title is called the WWE UNIVERSAL Championship. He calls forward the talents who will be in action tonight... Sami Zayn, Sheamus, Chris Jericho, Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Kevin Owens & Finn Balor.

Stephanie calls Charlotte forward as well. Foley says that she lost to Sasha last night, so therefore tonight Charlotte will be defending her WWE Women's Title TONIGHT against Sasha Banks. Stephanie wishes the 8 men good luck and tells us that the first fatal 4-way is coming up next... which will be after commercials.

First out for the first Fatal 4-way match is Cesaro. Next to appear is Rusev, followed by Owens and finally Finn Balor.

Match 1 - Fatal 4-Way - Winner goes to the main event of Raw - Cesaro vs. Rusev vs. Kevin Owens vs. Finn Balor

WINNER - Finn Balor

To mark this, one person from the crowd will become an honorary member of The New Day. They get some guy named Sonny Boy and make fun of the Sonny Boy name before getting to celebrate with them. Anderson & Gallows then sneak attack them (Sonny Boy managing to escape) and proceed to hit the Magic Killer on Big E. and beat down on Kofi & Xavier at ringside. They then take New Day's t-shirts, blow their nose on them and throw them at Sonny Boy who's back in the crowd. Luke & Karl 'Too Sweet' each other to close the segment.
