Raw this week dealt with all of the fallout from WWE Payback 24 hours earlier. How do Monday nights shape up after everything that happened?

Previously on WWE Raw, Braun Strowman took out the trash as we finished the build to Payback. Then Payback happened, and here we are. Spoiler alert: If you’re watching Raw for Chris Jericho, you’re going to be sorely disappointed.

The fallout from Payback permeated this week’s episode of Raw from Sacramento. Even what happened on the Kickoff Show spilled over into tonight, as Enzo Amore took on Luke Gallows.

The Hardy Boyz successfully defended their Tag Team Titles at Payback against Cesaro and Sheamus. However, keeping their titles didn’t mean they didn’t lose anything, as Sheamus kicked a tooth out of Jeff’s mouth. After the match, the challengers went ballistic and Pearl Harbored the champs. Tonight, Cesaro and Sheamus explained their actions. Why, guys?

We also got updates as to the health of Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns. Both men – but especially Roman – took a ton of punishment at Payback, and both looked to be in bad shape when Raw Talk got started. What is the status of each of these competitors?

This week’s episode kicked off with the entire Women’s Division in the ring. After Payback, Alexa Bliss is the new Raw Women’s Champion. With every one of her potential challengers in the ring – as well as the former champ, Bayley – what message did Alexa have for the division?
