WWE Monday Night Raw *SPOILERS* for the Broadcast on 5/8/2017

WWE is overseas on a European tour, and Raw has already taken place this afternoon (at least on the east coast of the United States) from the O2 Arena in London, England.  The following are the spoilers of tonight's show, courtesy WrestlingInc.com.  If you were in attendance and would like to share additional information or opinion, feel free to email me at bwentz@ring-rap.com.  If you want to watch the broadcast on USA Network at 8PM EST unspoiled, please do not read on! Due to conflicting obligations, we will not be covering tonight's show live as it happens.  Check back with us tomorrow sometime for post-show reaction.

There was an opening talking segment with Dean Ambrose being interrupted by The Miz and Maryse.  The two were co-GM’s for the night in the absence of Kurt Angle.  Braun Strowman came out and they booked him in a match against Kalisto, with Strowman having one arm tied behind his back.  Ambrose put Miz in a match to open the show.

Match #1 – Finn Balor def. The Miz (w/Maryse).  Miz DQ’d Balor initially, but Ambrose overrode him and restarted the match.  Balor won with Coup de Grace.

There was a backstage segment with Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss.

Match #2 – Alexa Bliss (w/Nia Jax) def. Mickie James (w/Bayley).  Nia distracted Mickie to allow Alexa to score the win, then attacked Mickie after the match.  Bliss and Bayley fought to the back.

There was a backstage segment where Miz and Ambrose argued over their GM duties.  Miz booked Ambrose vs. Wyatt for later.

Samoa Joe cut a promo on Seth Rollins, who attacked him until officials separated them.
