Monday Night Raw: 8 pm EST

Show opens up and Universal Champion Roman Reigns comes out to the ring. He says last night was rough and didn’t go as planned, but he still woke up as champion. He calls Brock Lesnar out but Braun Strowman comes out instead. The two men stand across from each other and Strowman tells Reigns he should be thanking Lesnar for coming out and saving him. Lesnar is the only reason Reigns still has his title. Strowman says if anyone should want a piece of Lesnar it’s him, and after he gets Lesnar, he’s coming for Reigns.

Acting General Manager of Raw Baron Corbin comes out to the ring and the crowd chants “You suck!” Corbin says he has a solution to the problem that will make everyone happy. In Saudi Arabia in early November, Reigns will defend his title against Strowman and Lesnar in a Triple Threat Match. Strowman says he thinks that sucks, the whole situation sucks and everyone in the entire arena sucks. He starts to leave but then Paul Heyman comes out.

Heyman explains the economics called ‘Brockonomics’ and how Lesnar’s actions make him worth more, not only in WWE but UFC as well. Heyman says Reigns and Strowman conspired and teamed up to take the Universal Title from Lesnar and that’s why he came back last night. That’s why Lesnar will go to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and regain what belongs to him. Heyman says Lesnar is the crown jewel of WWE. Strowman starts stomping his way angrily toward Heyman, who retreats. Reigns steps toward Corbin and Corbin backs him off by telling him he’s privy to the injury reports from last night.

Corbin says Reigns is a whining little puppy right now, not a big dog. And he informs Reigns   that he will defend his title tonight, against Corbin himself.


Singles Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Dean Ambrose

Match gets underway and Ambrose goes to work on McIntyre’s legs early. They battle to the outside and McIntyre throws Ambrose hard into the barricade. Commercial break.

Back again and McIntyre is in control. Ambrose manages to throw McIntyre out of the ring and catches a quick breather. McIntyre comes back in and Ambrose takes control. They trade shots and both men are showing visible signs of wear after last night’s match. McIntyre hangs upside down in the corner as Ambrose sets up on the top rope, but McIntyre does a sit-up and tosses Ambrose backward to the mat. Ambrose turns things around and gets a clover leaf submission hold. McIntyre gets to the ropes to break the hold.

McIntyre rolls to the outside and Ambrose leaps off the top rope. McIntyre moves and Ambrose crashes into the barricade. McIntyre rolls back in the ring and the ref starts to count Ambrose out. Ambrose gets back inside just in time but gets hit with a Claymore for the 3-count.

Winner: Drew McIntyre


Corbin tells Ziggler that he should invoke his rematch clause for the Intercontinental Championship tonight. Ziggler reminds him that he fell off the Hell In A Cell last night but Corbin says so did Rollins. Also, Rollins isn’t even at Raw right now, so Corbin hears. If Rollins can’t show up for the match, Ziggler would win the title by forfeit. Ziggler likes the sound of that plan.


Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey says she’s going to issue a championship open challenge tonight.


Singles Match: Chad Gable vs. Viktor

Gable scores the quick victory.


The Undertaker comes out to the ring to address Triple H ahead of their match in Australia at the Super Showdown. He says he’s never seen anyone with a more broken soul than Triple H. Taker says delusion will be H’s downfall. He was once a warrior but nowadays he plays a more corporate game. His battlefield is the board room. Taker says Triple H can’t see the fear in his own friends’ eyes and he can’t see his own demise. He says he doesn’t put much stock in what people say, but he knows is this: the result against Triple H this last time will be the same as the first time.

Triple H even has his best friend Shawn Michaels involved as well. Michaels will be standing in Triple H’s corner. And that’s okay with Taker because Kane will be standing in his corner. The crowd cheers and chants “Yes!” Taker says he’s going to take H’s soul and put him down. At the Super Showdown, Taker will have his brother of destruction watching his back and Triple H will “Rest In Peace.” With that, Taker takes his leave.


Singles Match: Bayley vs. Dana Brooke

Bayley picks up the quick victory.

Winner: Bayley
