Orton, Andrade, Ali, and Balor face off in a fatal four way preview of Money in the Bank, Paige reveals the new team name for Asuka and Kairi Sane, Kofi Kingston invites Kevin Owens to his own show, and more on a good episode of SmackDown Live.
The wild card rule is used (and broken) again as RAW superstars show up on SmackDown Live to chase some titles.
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods respond to Kevin Owens’ attack last week, Becky Lynch takes on Bayley, and the rest of the competitors for the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank matches are announced on an okay episode of SmackDown Live.
The Shield compete one last time (again) in a special WWE Network event.
The second day of the Superstar Shakeup has some interesting SmackDown debuts and Vince McMahon’s “greatest SmackDown acquisition.”
Rousey and Natalya team to take on Banks and Bayley, Heavy Machinery debuts in a RAW ring, The Revival get another title shot, Finn Balor takes on a giant, Rollins and McIntyre battle, and more on an okay but underwhelming episode of RAW.
Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins brawl, but Seth Rollins still wants Dean Ambrose. John Cena returns to RAW, but Drew McIntyre has been waiting for him. Alexa Bliss has a talk show, but it’s hijacked by Rousey, Banks, and Jax. The Revival want lumberjack justice, but they can’t seem to catch a break. Strowman wants a face to face with Lesnar, but Lesnar has other plans. Plus more!
Apollo Crews earns a big opportunity, Ronda Rousey gets pissed, Seth Rollins gets ruthless, Ziggler and McIntyre battle in a steel cage, and more on a good episode of RAW.
This Christmas Eve edition of RAW featured some pretty fun moments and two fine title matches, though in the end it felt a little inconsequential.
The promise of a fresh start on RAW has two number one contender matches, another beating of Baron Corbin, an IC Title open challenge, Ziggler and Balor attempting to settle their differences in the ring, and some retribution for Elias.
Seth Rollins takes a stand against Baron Corbin an ends up defending his IC Title in a TLC match less than a week before he has to face Dean Ambrose in another TLC match.
While it did give us more of the same from previous RAWs, there were at least some brighter points on this show compared to last week.
The playoffs start as the four remaining teams from RAW battle to determine who will go on to the semifinals of the Mixed Match Challenge.
RAW was a tough watch this week, saved pretty much only by Seth Rollins’ most recent Intercontinental Title open challenge.
Charlotte Flair gets a new partner right before taking on Awe-Ska, and Monster Eclipse battles Country Dominance in a night of broken streaks.
The RAW side of Survivor Series is decided on a RAW that wasn’t great until the last few minutes of the show.
The buildup for Survivor Series starts with a RAW that had some good among the average.
Mahalicia looks for their first win against the undefeated Monster Eclipse, and Ravishing Rusev Day makes a poor decision in challenging Fenomenal Flair to a chop-off.
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.
