WWE Monday Night Raw

WWE RAW is live tonight from Toyota Center in Houston. Here is the latest preview video from WWE to get you ready for the show:



We have more advertised angle of General Manager Elect Baron Corbin flexing his muscle on the RAW roster as he tightens his grip on the position heading into his TLC match with Braun Strowman, an injured Monster Among Men who is currently rehabbing from elbow surgery. Heel Dean Ambrose has promised to grace us with his presence this week after checking in from a doctor's office last week to innoculate himself from the vermin that is the WWE Universe. Alexa Bliss, put in charge of the women's division by Corbin, will more than likely continue trying to torment Sasha Banks and Bayley. Also, RAW Women's Champ Ronda Rousey and best friend Natalya will team against The Riott Squad after their sneak attack on Natalya last week. 



RAW Opening Segment

The show opens with a ten-bell salute for deceased former president George H. W. Bush.

Thence to the “Then. Now. Forever.” bumper.

We get entrances for Natalya & Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax & Tamina when the Riott Squad come down with a table. Nia and Tamina with the sneak attack, Ronda fights them off at first but the numbers game sets in and they ram the Raw Women’s Champion into the steel steps! Nattie fighting the Riott Squad one on three but she gets thrown into the apron!

Rousey into the ring, again she gets cut off and Jax drops the leg on her! Riot, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan have Neidhart up, Ruby with a kick... powerbomb off  the apron and through the table. Referees swarm ringside to check on Natalya while the heels retreat and enjoy the chaos they’ve caused and we go to break.

Backstage with Ronda Rousey

We go backstage where Ronda Rousey is walking with Natalya but Nattie’s hurting and has to sit on a road case for a breather. A pair of medics roll up and begin tending to her as Rousey fumes.

Alexa Bliss Addresses Sasha Banks and Bayley

Back in the arena proper, Alexa Bliss makes her entrance. She gets on the mic and says she was appointed to lead the women’s division and she promises to work hard every week to give us the best the division has to offer. That said, her open forum didn’t go to plan last week, and they’re going to try again.

And so Bayley and Sasha Banks make their entrance and take seats in the ring. Bayley interrupts before she can get to picking questions and asks how many questions before Alicia Fox, Dana Brooke, and Mickie James jump them again. Bliss apologizes and says she’s reprimanded the three of them before tossing to the floor for a question about all the comments on social media as to how Banks is using Bayley.

Sasha is mock upset and says that Bayley wasn’t supposed to find out about how she’s about to get stabbed in the back, before saying that she’s her best friend and they’re tag partners for life. Next question is if they could have a match against any female superstar from any era, and they answer Trish & Lita at WrestleMania at the same time. Next up, if they could have any super power, what would it be?

Bayley says it’s easy and she’d make things disappear, starting with Alexa, for which she takes a quick victory lap around her chair. Bliss complains that just when she thought they were getting somewhere she disappoints her again, and Charly Caruso goes on the prowl for another question while Sasha says she’d pick the same power. Next, what changes will they bring to the women’s division in 2019?

The Hugger says they had a great all-women’s pay-per-view but she knows for both of them they want to be the first-ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions. Alicia, Dana, and Mickie run down but the babyfaces have them scouted and Alexa dresses them down, telling them if they’re so eager, there’ll be a tag team match tonight-- James and Fox against the Boss & Hug Connection... right after the commercial break. 



Sasha Banks & Bayley vs. Mickie James & Alicia Fox

Back from the quick commercial break, which was just a new kind of split-screen ad for Nintendo Switch, and the match is underway. Alicia Fox goes at it with Bayley. Dana Brooke watches from ringside. Fox with a Northern Lights suplex for an early 2 count. Alexa Bliss is watching from a chair near the announcers.

Mickie tags in and delivers a running boot to the face while Bayley is down. Mickie with a knee to the gut. Mickie keeps Bayley grounded now. Mickie ends up on the floor as Bayley moves out of the way. Fox comes in and hits a kick. Bayley counters Fox and makes the tag to Banks.

Banks gets the hot tag and unloads on Fox. Banks rolls through a counter and drags her back for the Banks Statement in the middle of the ring. Mickie runs in and breaks it up. Mickie tags in now as fans boo. She kicks Banks and punches her, talking trash. Banks gets up and fires back with forearms. Mickie counters and drops Banks out of the corner for a 2 count as Bayley breaks the pin. Bayley with a back suplex to Fox as she runs in. Bayley rocks Dana off the apron. Mickie kicks Bayley and tosses her out of the ring. Banks rolls Mickie up from behind. Mickie counters the DDT and tags in Bayley. Banks with the Backstabber into a Bayley-to-Belly suplex for the pin to win.

Winners: Sasha Banks & Bayley 

After the match, Bliss is show applauding the winners. We get a tease of heel Dean Ambrose appearing later. We also get a recap of Corbin, Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley ambushing Elias last week. Corbin has dedicated tonight's episode as Drew McIntyre Appreciation Night. They also a promise a look at Corbin's rise to power before taking another break. 

Back from the break and we see country singer Morgan Waller at ringside. He will be on Tribute to the Troops this year.



Backstage with Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey catches up with Alexa Bliss backstage and yells at her for how she's managing the women's division. Bliss promises to address Nia Jax and her actions. Rousey says that's fine but she is going to get Jax and Tamina Snuka tonight. Bliss acts concerned and says she can't let Rousey do that, but she will find Rousey a new tag team partner now that Natalya is injured. Rousey doesn't trust Bliss and says she has no conscience. Rousey walks off.



Baron Corbin's Rise

The announcers lead us to a video package looking at General Manager-Elect Baron Corbin and his rise to power on the red brand. The announcers are still hyping Corbin vs. the injured Braun Strowman for TLC.

Corbin is backstage when Bobby Roode and Chad Gable walk in. Roode is furious about Drake Maverick urinating on his robe last week. Gable and Roode will do anything to get a rematch from RAW Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain. Corbin understands Roode is "ticked off" over what happened. He says they will get another shot if Roode can beat Drake in a match tonight.

Back from the break and we see recent happenings between The Revival and Lucha House Party. Back to the ring and out comes The Revival - Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder. Dawson takes the mic and goes on about how Lucha House Party doesn't respect tag team wrestling. He's ready to teach a lesson in this one-on-one match. JoJo announces that this match will be contested under Lucha House Rules, meaning all three members can participate. The Revival isn't happy.

Drew McIntyre Appreciation Night

Baron Corbin says he’ll be RAW’s permanent General Manager in two weeks when he beats Braun Strowman in a TLC match. From a wrestling superstar to a constable to General Manager-Elect. Corbin says if you’re born better than anyone else, you can achieve anything. During his journey, he’s had a few thorns in his side like The Shield, Kurt Angle, and Braun Strowman. Due to one man, his journey has been pain free. Corbin says tonight is Drew McIntyre Appreciation Night.

Video Package: The domination of Drew McIntyre over the RAW roster

Drew McIntyre makes his entrance. Corbin says since he took out Kurt Angle, they need a gold medalist. Corbin then gives McIntyre a gold medal for all the work he’s accomplished.

McIntyre says he’s here to end complacency. Seven months ago when he came here, he was going to eradicate the roster of these people. McIntyre wants to reform RAW in his image. It would be the home of the strong and mighty. These people would give 150% every day, not just Monday on RAW. McIntyre says he’s doing a good job. Finn Balor likes to think he’s the voice of these people. McIntyre says Balor is a boy in a man’s world. At TLC, he’ll hurt him and break his spirit.

Dolph Ziggler’s music hits, and he cuts off McIntyre. Ziggler says McIntyre is having memory problems. They had a deal. Ziggler brought McIntyre to RAW, but he wasn’t in the video package. They dominated RAW. Ziggler was the brains and McIntyre was the muscle. His invitation got lost in the mail. McIntyre says the truth is Ziggler was never invited. Ziggler doesn’t meet the height requirement for one. McIntyre says he was always the brains, muscle, and talent. McIntyre says he’s the whole damn package. This business relationship worked for a while, but it’s not working anymore. Ziggler’s role was to get him in a prominent position. Ziggler succeeded for once in his life. McIntyre sarcastically thanks Ziggler before dismissing him.

McIntyre says Ziggler should be kissing his feet. McIntyre is the reason Ziggler has been relevant for the first time in 10 years. Ziggler attacks McIntyre before hitting a Zig-Zag. Corbin says Ziggler is not going to come down here and ruin Drew McIntyre Appreciation Night. Corbin says Ziggler will face McIntyre now. But first we go to a commercial break. 



Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler

Back from the break and the match is underway. Drew McIntyre talks trash as he backs Dolph Ziggler into the ropes. Ziggler kicks him and fights back.

McIntyre drops Ziggler and catapults him into the turnbuckles. Ziggler flies over the ring post and lands on the floor. Drew ends up bringing Ziggler back into the ring and keeping him down, focusing on the arm. Ziggler fights back and looks to make a comeback but McIntyre blocks the DDT, then launches Ziggler across the ring. Drew sends Ziggler back out of the ring. Drew takes the mic and talks some trash while keeping Ziggler down. Drew is going to pretend Ziggler is Finn Balor. Drew rams Ziggler back into the apron and drops him on the floor with a Spinebuster.

Drew stands up and yells out over Dolph. Drew brings it back into the ring now, talking trash and stalking Ziggler as he struggles to get up. McIntyre lets Ziggler swing but he blocks it and chops him back to the mat. Fans pop as Balor comes walking out to the stage now. Drew turns his attention to Balor, but looks back at Ziggler as he slowly gets up. Balor walks down the ramp as we go back to commercial.

We come back from the break to see McIntyre fight Ziggler off. Ziggler quickly elbows and boots him, but McIntyre comes back with an inverted Alabama Slam for a near fall. McIntyre angrily looks at Balor. McIntyre gets Ziggler on the top rope, but Ziggler knocks him off. Ziggler then hits a spike DDT for a near fall. Ziggler elbows McIntyre back and sends him over the top rope. Ziggler leaps off the apron and punches away at McIntyre. Ziggler chops the chest, but McIntyre immediately responds with a Glasgow Kiss. McIntyre crotches Ziggler onto the barricade before rolling him into the ring. Ziggler rolls into the referee, who falls down. Balor then dropkicks McIntyre into the barricade. The referee starts to count, and McIntyre gets in at nine. Ziggler immediately superkicks him to pin him. That’s the first time Drew McIntyre has been pinned since he’s been back in WWE.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler

Ronda Rousey will team with a partner to be determined to take on Nia Jax and Tamina. We’ll also hear from Dean Ambrose.

Replays are shown of the annihilation of Elias last week on RAW. Elias will perform, next.



Backstage with Drew McIntyre

Drew McIntyre is angrily walking backstage when Charly Caruso stops him. McIntyre says they don’t know what he’s capable of, but Dolph Ziggler does. Ziggler attached himself to him like a parasite to reach the top of the mountain, but McIntyre is the mountain. It’ll come crashing down on Ziggler. As for Finn Balor, he’s a marked man.



Elias Performance

“Ladies and gentlemen… Elias.”

Elias greets the crowd and plays a riff. Elias wishes Bobby Lashley was here so he could wrap his guitar around his head. Lashley is hard to find. At TLC, there will be nowhere to hide. At TLC, “The Almighty” Bobby Lashley will find out a universal truth: WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Despite all of that, he has a song to sing.

Lio Rush immediately cuts him off. Rush and Bobby Lashley are on stage. Rush says as much as they’d love to hear Elias play a song, the spotlight belongs to “The Almighty” Bobby Lashley. Elias felt the power and strength of Lashley. At TLC, he’ll feel it again… and again… and again. Lashley has the most magnificent body in the world. Michelangelo couldn’t envision such a physique. Rush has Lashley do some poses before doing his signature pose of bending down and pointing at his rear end.

Elias leaves the ring and charges up the ramp. Lashley quickly cuts him off and beats him down. Elias reverses a whip into the LED stage wall and grabs his guitar, but Lashley barely escapes. Rush all of a sudden comes up on the stage, and Elias cracks him in the back with the guitar. The cameras missed Balor coming out and throwing Rush onto the stage. Elias and Balor smile at each other.

Baron Corbin Says He's Firing Either Heath Slater Or Rhyno

We see Baron Corbin backstage with Jinder Mahal and The Singh Brothers. Jinder tells Corbin not to let that stress him out, and to ignore the rumors on Braun Strowman showing up tonight. Jinder offers to take care of Balor tonight. Corbin says the Strowman rumors are just that, and they joke about him being a one-armed man. Corbin says Jinder can take out Balor for him tonight. Jinder leaves. Corbin brings Heath Slater and Rhyno in next. He understands they are friends and the first SmackDown Tag Team Champions but he's preparing for his role as permanent GM, and he's been crunching numbers. Corbin says he's come to the conclusion that there is only room enough on RAW for one of them. He says he will be fair and let one of them quit to save the other's job. Corbin asks who it will be. Slater says he can't quit because he's got kids. Rhyno says he's worked hard for his career and he can't just quit. Corbin announces Slater vs. Rhyno for tonight. The winner stays on RAW and the loser gets fired.

The cameras cut to the backstage area and we see Gable getting beat down by RAW Tag Team Champions The Authors of Pain. Baron Corbin shows up with officials. Corbin says he forgot to announce that this was a 2-on-3 Handicap Match. Corbin sends Akam and Rezar to the ring. Corbin tells Gable he better hurry and get to the ring as well.

Roode tries to put Maverick away quickly. He drops him with the Glorious DDT right as Akam and Rezar rush the ring to break the pin up. They send Roode into the steel ring post next. Akam and Rezar take turns on Roode now. Gable comes slowly walking out from the back, holding the back of his head.

Ambrose apologizes for the drastic measures he's taken tonight but you can't be too safe in a dangerous slum like Houston. Ambrose is protecting himself from the people and their diseases, and from the madman Seth Rollins. Ambrose takes his mask off. Ambrose says last time he was in this ring he was viciously attacked by Rollins, unprovoked. Ambrose goes on about Rollins and says he's proud to stand here as the moral compass of WWE. Ambrose says he would take the Intercontinental Title by force at TLC but that'll be too easy. Ambrose tells Rollins to pay attention because he knows he's backstage watching. Ambrose goes on about how Rollins will lose control of himself at TLC, and then lose control of the title. Ambrose tells Rollins not to worry because his prestigious title will fall into his hands. The music interrupts and out comes the WWE Intercontinental Champion through the crowd from behind.
