TRIPLE THREAT MATCH TO DETERMINE FINAL MEMBER OF WOMEN’S TEAM RAW
MICKIE JAMES vs. BAYLEY vs. DANA BROOKE
All the women of Team Raw are around the ring to observe the matchup. The match starts with Mickie James taking control, but Bayley quickly taking control and taking Mickie out of the ring. Very back and forth match, which each woman taking control at some point, but Mickie James having a majority of the offense. Mickie with an impressive maneuver off the top rope, and follows it up with a neck breaker on Bayley. She then throws Dana Brooke out of the ring, who lands right at the feet of Asuka. Dana Brooke gives Asuka attitude, and gives her a forearm to the face. Asuka, enraged, chases down Dana and eventually nails Dana Brooke with a stiff kick to the face. Amidst the confusion, Bayley is able to hit Mickie James with a Bayley to Belly and pick up the victory! Bayley is part of Team Raw!
DREW GULAK & ENZO AMORE vs. AKIRA TOZAWA & KALISTO
Enzo comes out and goes into his normal schtick, and then talks about his match Sunday with Kalisto. Gulak interrupts a Enzo a few times, but Enzo then gives Gulak the chance to talk, just to be interrupted by his opponents.
Gulak and Tozawa start the match, and Gulak is distracted and angered by the chants. Amore and Gulak quickly take control after a blind tag that Tozawa didn’t see, but Kalisto is tagged in and quickly takes control back after knocking both men out of the ring with a double dropkick. Gulak and Enzo take control of the match, wearing Tozawa down, but Kalisto is able to get the hot tag, taking down Enzo with a huge senton. Both Gulak and Enzo are out of the ring, and Tozawa delivers a suicide dive like he was shot out of a cannon onto Enzo Amore, and Kalisto follows it up with a 450 splash onto Gulak. Enzo is thrown back into the ring, and Tozawa sets up his senton, but Gulak pulls him out of the ring. Kalisto aids his partner with a splash, but Enzo is able to capitalize, sending Tozawa into his partner and Enzo is able to hit Tozawa with the JawdonZo for the 3-count.
Winners: Enzo Amore and Drew Gulak
We see Kurt Angle backstage with the other 4 members of Team Raw. He says they need unity and to make a statement. He sets up Finn Balor and Samoa Joe to go against Gallows and Anderson. He then says that he wants Jason Jordan to prove that he belongs on Team Raw, and that he would be facing Bray Wyatt in a one-on-one match up. Before he can tell Braun Strowman who he is going to face, Braun simply states “I WANT KANE.” Kurt grants him his match, and says that in the main event, Braun Strowman will be going against Kane. Braun says “It’s True, It’s Damn True.”
It’s time for Miz TV! We see Miz, flanked by Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, and The Miz proceeds to cut a scathing promo on “internet tough guy” Baron Corbin. Miz says that he will be facing off against Corbin at Survivor Series unless he squanders the opportunity in tomorrow night’s United States Championship match against Sin Cara. Miz says that squandering opportunities is what Corbin does, who was not even on SmackdownLive last week, and not even good enough to be the bathroom break (ouch). Meanwhile, The Miz creates the opportunities and will be facing off against The Shield along with his guests, the NEW WWE Tag Team Champions, Sheamus & Cesaro.
The new Tag Team Champions make their way to the ring, and The Miz congratulates them on their big win. Sheamus says that it’s no surprise, as they took advantage of their opportunity to become 3-time Raw Tag Team Champions. Sheamus says that they are the REAL tag team champions as opposed to the Usos, who won their titles on the “B Show” Smackdown, while they are the tag team champions of the flagship show. Cesaro says that at Survivor Series, they are going to jailbreak the Uso Penitentiary. The Miz says that tonight, they will break the “original” Shield, in their return match to WWE. The Miz says that their happy reunion will end tonight.
