WWE Raw notes: Kurt Angle appears, Dexter Lumis-Miz, sign about Sasha Banks removed

Kurt Angle in several segments on Raw in Pittsburgh, Dexter Lumis stalks Miz, a sign about Sasha Banks removed, Zayn-Owens

In his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle appeared. His in-ring segment was interrupted by Chad Gable and Otis. The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) came out to the ring for a match against Gable and Otis. It was agreed upon that if Alpha Academy won, Angle would have to join their group. Ford and Dawkins won the match and afterwards, they drank milk with Angle.

Later in the show, Edge and Angle recreated their moment from 2002 when he handed Angle photos but on the back of the cards were jokes about Angle.

Before The Miz’s match with United States Champion Bobby Lashley, while on the way to the ring, he was asked about Dexter Lumis being arrested at the WWE Performance Center. Miz did not want to talk about it. During Miz’s match, Lumis was watching and Miz spotted him which caused him to lose. As Miz was driving away from the arena, a light in the back of his truck showed that Lumis was in the vehicle.

An individual in the front row had a sign that read, “We want Naomi. Not Botcha Banks”. The sign was taken away by Temarrio Thomas, WWE’s Senior Associate Producer.

Independent talents Kayla Sparks, Dani Mo and Katie Arquette fell in defeat to Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss and Asuka in a six-woman tag match.

A segment with Theory and Johnny Gargano aired during the program:

Kevin Owens and Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champion Jey Uso went one-on-one. Jimmy Uso distracted the referee so that Sami Zayn could hit Owens with a chair. Zayn did not follow through and Owens ended up getting the win. Before the match, Owens expressed how disappointed he is in Zayn for forgetting how talented he is and relegating himself to doing the dirty work for The Bloodline.

Members of the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers were in attendance.
