WWE Raw opened with a long promo from Baron Corbin. This man needs so much improvement with the mic. Fans did know that this is time for Survivor Series with the Raw vs. Smackdown theme. There was no need for such a boring mic segment from the acting GM of the show. Thankfully for us, Kurt Angle and Braun Strowman entered the scene to save the day for us. Strowman chasing down Corbin presented some funny segments to us throughout the night.

The Riott Squad took on against Natalya, Sasha Banks, and Bayley. WWE channeled a new storyline angle featuring the later great Jim ‘The Anvil’ Neidhart. It was quite nasty to see Ruby Riott smashing Jim’s sunglasses like that in front of the crowd. A total disrespectful angle from the creative team of the company. However, WWE is famous for using legendary names in such things to bring the heat out of the crowd. There’s nothing new in it.

Seth Rollins has turned into the biggest babyface of the WWE Raw roster, right now. There’s no doubt about his ability inside the ring. He proved it once again by competing in a handicap match against AOP. It was certain that AOP would pick up the championships and there were no otherwise in the outcome of the match. Dean Ambrose came out to attack Rollins again as the crowd showered him with boos. This is pretty much what he needs to become the meanest heel on the roster.

Ronda Rousey cut another decent promo on WWE Raw about Survivor Series. But the fact that she stops in between talking proves that the writers fed her with forced lines. This sounds awkward in time for the most part. Nia Jax heel-turn seemed evident after winning the battle royal at Evolution. So teaming up with Tamina was indeed a predicted move. The combined force could be a great bar put up against Rousey, in future.

Kurt Angle would surely want to erase the nightmare experience that he had against Drew McIntyre. His in-ring comeback on WWE Raw proved to be a disastrous decision. He tapped out to his own Ankle Lock move that is unthinkable. However, it has set up a valiant comeback for the WWE Raw general manager at a later part. We hope the creative team will use him in marquee matches in the absence of Roman Reigns.

Overall, it was a good episode of WWE Raw that built up storylines for Survivor Series. Here are the Twitter reactions from the show.
