The buildup for Survivor Series starts with a RAW that had some good among the average.
A few very minor surprises didn’t elevate this RAW to much more than average as WWE coasts its way into Crown Jewel this Friday.
The Shield continues to show cracks while some returns give a bit of freshness to a show that otherwise felt mostly like more of the same from RAW.
Shawn Michaels makes a big announcement, The Bella Twins make a statement at the expense of Ronda Rousey, Lashley and Owens trade places, Trish Stratus responds to Alexa Bliss, The Shield might have fractured, and more on a pretty good episode of RAW.
Shawn Michaels sends a warning to Kane, The Shield is divided into three separate matches, Ruby Riott attempts to give Ronda Rousey her first loss, Owens and Elias nearly get booed out of the building, and more on an okay episode of RAW.
Baron Corbin gets a chance to make up for his mistakes as acting-GM when he faces The Shield with two partners of his choice, Dean Ambrose’s loyalty is tested, The Revival finally get their tag title shot, and more all on an okay episode of RAW.
Baron Corbin abuses his power by putting himself in a Universal Title match on an episode of RAW that mostly felt like more of the same on the road to Super Show-Down.
The RAW before Hell in a Cell didn’t contain anything particularly remarkable, but it was an alright show overall.
Ziggler and McIntyre force their way into a match, The Shield gets in trouble with the law, the Authors of Pain get a new manager, Dana Brooke gets fed up, Bobby Roode gets a tag partner, and Shawn Michaels encounters The Undertaker on a not great episode of RAW.
