This week’s WWE Raw kicked-off with a special edition of Miz TV. Also, a guitar on a pole match was announced for the show alongside a huge main event between two giant names. Check out the results from the show hosted by the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.
The show kicked off with The Miz TV edition with Kurt Angle being the special guest. The Hollywood A-lister went on to blast the GM for letting Kane attack Daniel Bryan on last week’s Raw. He also mentioned that Kurt was the one to allow Braun Strowman attacking all the three members of Miztourage, last week. After enough talks, Angle sanctioned a match wanted Braun Strowman against The Miz on WWE Raw.
The Guitar on a pole match took place next. Quite surprisingly, it fell short of the expectations despite the new stipulation. The crowd remained silent for the most part of the match, as Jordan picked up the win by smashing the guitar on Elias’ back and seeking the redemption. Following the success that Jordan earned on the show, Kurt Angle made him one member of Team Raw for the Survivor Series PPV.
Sasha Banks and Bayley demanded to get inserted into the Survivor Series matchup pointing out their success from last year. They were handed a match to compete, and if they win, then they would have a chance. The best friend duo defeated the team of Alicia Fox and Nia Jax. After this, the captain, Fox declared to choose Sasha in her team but not Bayley, to a big surprise.
In another matchup on WWE Raw, Asuka got a chance to compete against another local talent. It took her a little bit of time before squashing the rookie wrestler. Alicia Fox came out after the match to officially enter Asuka to the women’s team at Survivor Series.
Titus O’Neil was scheduled to take part in a match against Samoa Joe. But, he got attacked from the Samoan Submission Machine before the contest. It took out Finn Balor to challenge Joe in a match. It turned out to be a no disqualification, as a brawl broke out between the two on the ramp. Kurt Angle came out to declare that both men would get included to team Raw.
Braun Strowman faced The Miz, as per the announcement from the general manager. They hardly got time to wrestle, as Kane appeared and attacked the monster among men, straight. Strowman though, backfired by pushing Kane off the ring with a clothesline and then delivering a running powerslam on The Miz to stand tall.
On the main event, The Shield and The Bar locked horns for the WWE Raw tag team titles. Much to the surprise of the crowd, The New Day appeared declaring that the show is under siege, once again. It distracted the champions, as Sheamus connected with the Brogue Kick to pin Rollins and become the new tag team champions.
