WWE is currently taping tonight’s episode of Raw from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. We'll have results and spoilers posted periodically over the next few hours, with full coverage and news at the usual time of 8 PM EST.
— Currently taping WWE Main Event matches. Tyler Breeze beat Mojo Rawley in a quick match. The Revival is currently facing Chad Gable and Bobby Roode…
— They showed a promo for NXT UK and the place went wild. Lots of “NXT” chants.
— The entire Raw roster was brought out to the stage to get things started. Baron Corbin came to the ring, surrounded by security. He confirmed that Survivor Series will have 5-on-5 men’s match with Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler announced so far. Kurt Angle interrupted and wanted a spot on the team. Tonight we are getting Angle vs. Corbin, with the winner becoming the captain of Team Raw.
— Alexa Bliss was named the captain of Team Raw for the women’s match. She announced that she will be scouting talent tonight and next week, and that she would just be managing the team and not actually competing herself.
— Stephanie McMahon will return to Raw next week to address the awful finish to the WWE World Cup tournament, that saw Shane McMahon put himself in the final match and win.
— THE RIOTT SQUAD vs. BAYLEY SASHA BANKS & NATALYA never actually happened, as far as we can tell. Ruby Riott broke a pair of sunglasses that belonged to Jim Neidhart, they all taunted her, and left. Bayley and Sasha comforted Natalya afterwards.
— APOLLO CREWS def. JINDER MAHAL
— Seth Rollins came out carrying the Intercontinental Championship and BOTH of the Raw Tag Team Championships. He said that Brock Lesnar being Universal Champion was a slap in the face to everyone in the locker room. Corbin appeared and said that Seth & Dean Ambrose would have to defend the titles TONIGHT against the Authors of Pain, and if Dean didn’t want to show up, Rollins would be going it alone.
— THE AUTHORS OF PAIN def. SETH ROLLINS (c) to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions!
— Dean Ambrose came out from the crowd and attacked Rollins, dropping him with the Dirty Deeds.
— Ronda Rousey is out… She called out Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch ahead of their match at Survivor Series. She said that Becky may be “the man” but she is the baddest bitch in the world, and a natural born killer.
— NIA JAX vs. EMBER MOON ended with Tamina Snuka coming out and beating down Moon. Nia got in her face… and turned heel (again), also beating down Moon. Looks like the two are in cahoots now.
— Acting GM Baron Corbin has officially left the building, as to not be murdered by Braun Strowman, Instead, Drew McIntyre will fill in for him tonight in singles action against Kurt Angle!
— ELIAS def. DOLPH ZIGGLER
— BOBBY LASHLEY def. FINN BALOR after involvement from Lio Rush. Drew McIntyre made his entrance while Lashley was still in the ring and the two had a staredown.
— DREW MCINTYRE def. KURT ANGLE. Huge, huge win for McIntyre. He hit a Claymore Kick but didn’t stop there, hitting the Angle Slam and then making Kurt tap to the ankle lock.
— This may have been a dark match segment, or it could have been the end of the show. Dolph Ziggler joined McIntyre in attacking Angle, until Braun Strowman came out to make the save.
