Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins have stepped into a feud with Andrade and Angel Garza heading into SummerSlam surrounding the Raw Tag Team Championships. This week on Raw, the two tag teams were split into singles matches with controversial results.
Garza was able to defeat Angelo Dawkins when Ford fell off the ring apron after he had earlier been seen drinking from his usual red cup and pulling his face as though he wasn’t sure what he was drinking. Despite collapsing and costing Dawkins his match, Raw returned with Ford in the ring ready to take on Andrade.
The Raw Tag Team Champion was able to hold his own for much of the match before he collapsed once again and the match was called off. Doctors were called over as Andrade made his exit having defeated one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions just weeks before SummerSlam.
This week’s episode of Raw has had a number of noteworthy issues, with earlier glitches that saw the lighting in the Performance Center flickering for the first match between Apollo Crews and MVP.
There were then a number of mic issues when the KO show was taking place before Charly Caruso revealed that a box had fallen over backstage and that was thought to be the reason behind the glitches on Raw.
Backstage, Dawkins revealed that it appeared that Ford had been poisoned ahead of his match, which led to Bianca Belair brawling with Zelina Vega since she believed that Vega was the brains behind her husband’s recent issues.
The commentary team then went on to show some security footage from earlier in the night that showed five stars outside the Performance Center causing some issues with the electrics for the show. At present, it is unknown what this means for Monday Night Raw.
Could the same person be behind Montez Ford’s drink being spiked? It appears that there could be a much bigger storyline here.
