It’s the last Raw before Survivor Series, a final chance for Raw to put the finishing touches on their teams for the PPV. Plus, for the first time in twelve years, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg will stand across a ring from each other! Here’s all the results from this week’s episode of Raw!
Live from Buffalo, New York.
The entire Raw team for Survivor Series stood on the stage, presumably so they could be yelled at by Stephanie McMahon. And indeed, Stephanie and Mick delivered a pep talk in the form of running down the card for the PPV, then demanded that they all show unity or there will be changes.
– Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens d. Sheamus and Cesaro (Owens pinned Sheamus, Spear)
– Sami Zayn d. Bo Dallas (pinfall, Helluva Kick)
Backstage, The Brian Kendrick promised the rest of the Cruiserweight division that they would not be moving to Smackdown and he would remain Champion. TJ Perkins, Rich Swann, and Noam Dar all took issue with his confidence, and demanded title shots. Things broke down from there.
– Chris Jericho, Braun Strowman and Seth Rollins d. The New Day (Braun pinned Xavier, Running Powerslam)
Rollins hit Jericho with a Pedigree after the match, due to Jericho being very annoying in victory.
Backstage, Paul Heyman cast doubts upon Team Raw, and Mick Foley ordered more security for Goldberg and Lesnar’s faceoff.
– The Brian Kendrick d. Sin Cara (submission, Captain’s Hook)
Brock Lesnar and Goldberg’s face-off began with them staring at each other across a line of security guards in the ring. Goldberg repeatedly interrupted Paul Heyman’s introductory spiel, refused to let Heyman talk, and suggested the security should leave the ring. Heyman attempted to list off the people whom Brock has beaten, but Goldberg pointed out that he isn’t on that list, and threatened to rip off Heyman’s head if he ever talks about Goldberg’s family again. Heyman continued to try and promote the match at Survivor Series, and Lesnar shoved two security guards at Goldberg to weaken the wall. Heyman made one last reference to Goldberg’s son, and Goldberg beat up the remaining security guards. Lesnar initially teased a fight, but backed off.
– Sasha Banks and Charlotte d. Nia Jax and Alicia Fox (submission, Banks Statement)
– Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson, Enzo Amore and Big Cass d. The Shining Stars and The Golden Truth (Gallows pinned Primo, Magic Killer)
The GMs and Commissioners came out for a Survivor Series Summit. Shane and Daniel make sure to plug the 900th episode of Smackdown and guest appearances by The Undertaker and Edge. Trash talk was exchanged as the crowd slowly dies, and Stephanie finally brought out Raw’s men’s team to intimidate Shane and Daniel. Of course, Team Smackdown came out from the crowd, and after some more trash talk (at which point Styles, his haircut, and Ellsworth all made the List), the inevitable brawl ensued. Guess who got to stand tall at the end. Go ahead. You’ll never guess.
It was Roman Reigns. You’re shocked, right?
