WWE Raw Results Highlights, live updates-

Kofi Kingston vs. Drew McIntyre (No 1 Contender for WWE Championship): Drew McIntyre displayed his power right from the word ‘Go.’ He took Kofi to the corner and unloaded on him with his strikes. Drew looked on the money until Kofi threw him out from the top rope and jumped off the apron. After the ad break, McIntyre hit Kofi with a Glasgow Kiss and took control. Kofi was not in a mood to give up though and his resilience was noteworthy. He came up with his offense to gain control, but once again McIntyre changed the complexion of the match with two belly-to-belly throws.

Kofi once again made his presence felt by hitting an SOS out of nowhere. He then tried a failed pinfall attempt after which McIntyre rolled out of the ring to give himself some time. But Kofi was in no mood to give McIntyre any time for respite and jumped off the corner only to be lifted and thrown over the barricade.

An awkward landing didn’t do well to Kofi’s back and Drew McIntyre took the advantage altogether. Kofi once again tried to fight back with the top of the turnbuckle powerbomb. He ended up with yet another unsuccessful pin that frustrated him. Drew then tried to put Kofi away with a spinning future shock DDT, but Kofi was yet again resilient. The match saw so many offenses and exemplary moves as both the warriors were not willing to go down.

At one stage, Drew using his core strength threw Kingston off the top rope, and when he was loading for a Claymore, Kofi hit him with a Trouble in Paradise. However, once again the referee could only count two and Drew McIntyre survived yet another close count. In the closing moments, Kofi tried for a super fall off the turnbuckle but McIntyre hit him with a Claymore to close off the night.
