The penultimate edition of WWE Raw before Survivor Series came to us from Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. On the show we saw Bianca Belair pick up a victory over Tamina, The Street Profits defeat The Alpha Academy, and mixed fortunes for the Women’s Tag Champions as Nikki ASH lost to Queen Zelina and Rhea Ripley beat Carmella, plus all of this:
Seth Instigates Six-Man Action
During the tag team opener to WWE Raw which pitted WWE Champion Big E and his partner Riddle against The Usos, Seth Rollins decided he didn’t want to stay at the announces desk. The match ended in a no-contest when Rollins got in to it with Big E on the outside and then attacked Riddle, whilst shortly after Randy Orton stormed the ring and hit Jey Uso with an RKO.
This led to all six men being involved in a further tag match straight after. The match came to an end with the villains victorious, as Rollins managed to get a quick roll-up on Riddle. Jey Uso would then become the foil for the losing side, as he took another RKO from Orton followed by a Big Ending from the WWE Champion.
Liv Morgan Confronted Becky Lynch
Whilst WWE Raw Women’s Champion had her sights set on her inter-brand clash with Charlotte Flair at Survivor Series, she had also not forgotten about the imminent threat to her title reign from Liv Morgan. ‘Big Time Becks’ showed footage from Talking Smack where she endorsed Morgan, only to claim that she was clearly wrong in that statement. This led to an attack from Morgan, making a statement that she’s ready to take the WWE Raw Women’s Championship.
Survivor Series Partners Clash
Kevin Owens, having recently been on somewhat of a losing streak, and Finn Balor went to battle on WWE Raw. The pair will team up on Sunday at Survivor series, however they put that all to one side as they went at it tooth and nail. Owens was managed to finally get a victory under his belt after he hit a stunner.
Omos (Yeah, And AJ Styles) Decimate Roode & Ziggler
This match was short and sweet. The Dirty Dawgs may have been looking to score what many would consider to be an upset on WWE Raw, but after AJ Styles quickly tagged in the monstrous Omos, Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler stood little chance. At the end of the match, ‘The Phenomenal One’ tagged himself back in and hit the Phenomenal Forearm on Ziggler to get the pinfall.
Rey Rey Replaced
In the WWE Raw main event, Bobby Lashley took on Rey Mysterio. Rey’s son Dominik watched on from ringside, however he would not have liked what he saw especially when ‘The Almighty’ applied the Hurt Lock to get the victory, leaving Rey to be tended to by his son.
If that wasn’t bad enough for the Mysterio family, WWE Executive Adam Pearce then made his way out on to the stage and announced that follow the loss, Rey would be replaced as a member of Team Raw at Survivor Series. This led to Austin Theory hitting the ring and attacking Dominik, only for that to make up Pearce’s mind that Theory should be the replacement as the show went off the air.
