The latest episode of Monday Night RAW is currently airing on the USA Network. Here’s what’s happened so far:
8:55 – We then cut to a video package recapping recent the events between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. We then see Dean Ambrose in his doctor’s office with his arm bloodied. He claims that he’ll be in the arena next week, but this week he’s getting inoculated. He also says he’s going to put Rollins out of his misery at WWE TLC on December 15.
8:50 – We come back from commercial to see Baron Corbin chewing out a crew member and ends up firing him. Alexa Bliss then rolls up and says that she thinks Baron’s doing an amazing job and asks if there’s anything she can help with. He asks her to oversee the entire women’s division. She asks if he’s serious, and he confirms.
8:45 – Elias wins by DQ. Corbin announces a DQ match and Elias and Lashley start up again. Corbin then joins McIntyre and Lashley in pummeling Elias, before Lashley finishes him off with a gator roll. Lashley wins by pinfall with a kneeling pin.
8:30 – Elias hold his own during the opening moments, but McIntyre and Corbin show up to aid Lashley, and then corner Elias against the barricade before backing off at the referee’s command. Lashley promptly knocks Elias into the ringpost. Elias rebounds and tries to hit the diving elbow drop on Lashley but Lio Rush knocks the referee out of the ring, causing a disqualification.
Bobby Lashley vs Elias
8:20 – After everyone clears the stage, Elias appears and begins to play a song. He tells the audience that he can’t think of anything worse than Corbin as full-time general manager, and proceeds to mock Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley. The latter comes to the ring to begin his match against Elias.
8:10 – Each Superstar takes turns saying what they are thankful for, and McIntyre says he is thankful for the beating that they laid on Braun Strowman last week. We then go out to Birmingham, Alabama on the big screen to interview Strowman ahead of his surgery.
8:05 – The episode opens with Baron Corbin, Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, and Lio Rush in the ring together. Corbin says he hopes the audience had a happy Thanksgiving, but then says that he and the rest of the Superstars in the ring don’t fill their bodies with disgusting carbs.
Perhaps the biggest story heading into tonight’s episode is the rivalry between Dean Ambrose and Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins. The latter pursued Ambrose all around the arena last week, finally getting his hands on his former Shield brother at the end of the night, but Ambrose took him out with two consecutive Dirty Deeds.
It stands to reason that Ambrose and Rollins’ rivalry will continue to grow, to the extent that Rollins will address it during tonight’s episode. Rollins is set to defend his title against Ambrose at WWE TLC on December 16. According to WWE.com, Rollins will look to “refocus” on his upcoming PPV showdown by testing himself with an Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge during tonight’s episode.
Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins Will Face Off In an Open Challenge Tonight
Ronda Rousey defended the Raw Women’s Championship against Mickie James in an unscheduled title last week. Despite some tense exchanges between Rousey, Nia Jax, and Tamina, the Baddest Woman on the Planet managed to hold her own and intimidate those around her. Expect to learn more about what Jax and Tamina have in store for Rousey when they clash at WWE TLC.
Bobby Roode & Chad Gable scored a huge upset victory over Raw Tag Team Champions Authors of Pain during last week’s episode, meaning that the duo are even closer to Team Red’s titles. WWE.com reports that Roode & Gable will also get an opportunity to take on the Authors of Pain in a Raw Tag Team Championship Match this Monday night. Last week also saw Elias pay the price for making snide comments about Lio Rush when Rush and Lashley too laid into him.
Braun Strowman Will Deal With the Aftermath of His Shattered Right Elbow
Then, of course, there’s Braun Strowman. Strowman took a vicious beating at the hands of Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin last week that resulted in a shattered right elbow. This came moments after he was granted a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match against Corbin at WWE TLC that, if won, would grant him a Universal Championship opportunity against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble PPV.
Tonight’s episode could shed some light on the severity of Strowman’s injury, and whether he will need surgery before returning to the ring.
