Did it go as per plan for Paul Heyman and him?

Here's what happened on the August 1 show...

Second episode in WWE RAW's new era was opened by Sasha Banks. Her address was interrupted by Charlotte and the duo indulged in some trash talk. Chris Jericho made his way to the ring to side by Charlotte. In response, Enzo Amore came out to support Sasha. The heated arguments compelled General Manager Mick Foley to announce a mixed tag match immediately.

Chris Jericho/Charlotte beat Sasha Banks/Enzo Amore after Dana Brooke caused a distraction. After the match, Big Cass came for Chris Jericho, who ran backstage.

Braun Strowman did not break a sweat as he beat local jobber in no time.

Finn Balor made his way to the ring and informed Michael Cole that he would make a major impact on Raw. He was cut short by Seth Rollins and the duo got involved in some trash talk.

Rusev defeated Mark Henry by submission to retain the WWE United States Championship. Earlier in the show, Henry had convinced Stephanie McMahon and Foley, to set up a match for him on the show.
