WWE Raw was once trade as standard for WWE because it continues to shrug off destructive press forward of its imminent go back and forth to Saudi Arabia for the Crown Jewel pay-per-view on November.
Raw complicated a number of of the highest storylines for Crown Jewel as The Undertaker and Kane approved D-Generation X’s problem whilst WWE held 2 World Cup qualifying suits for the development. Raw’s primary tournament noticed the plain breakup of the Dogs of War triad as Drew McIntyre delivered a couple of Claymore Kicks to Braun Strowman: 1 on twist of fate, 1 on goal.
WWE’s viewership has spent the previous 3 weeks within the all-time bottom-three. Once once more dealing with pageant from the MLB postseason and Monday Night Football, amongst a robust slate of fall programming, the craze of slumping Raw viewership figures to proceed.

WWE Raw: Monday, October 15, 2018
Opening Segment that includes The Shield, Dolph Ziggler, Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre famous the Dogs of War did not want a catchy nickname to achieve success. They’re proper. “Dogs of War” is a terrible nickname.
WWE persisted to tease rigidity between Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre when he insisted the Dogs of War have been the best three-man workforce in WWE historical past. An glaring dig at 3MB.
WWE persisted to tease rigidity between The Shield when Seth Rollins, status inches clear of Roman Reigns, famous “I’ve always liked Philadelphia.”
Dolph Ziggler def. Drew McIntyre by way of Countout (YouTube Views: 34.956)
Drew McIntyre lost a few of his sturdy credibility as a large man when he crawled beneath the hoop.
Dean Ambrose confirmed up overdue to Raw in what was once described as “Ambrose Time.” That will encourage a Dean Ambrose watch on WWEShop.com very quickly.
Undertaker and Kane Respond to D-Generation X (YouTube Views: 19,570)
There are few facets of Bray Wyatt’s persona that The Undertaker must imagine stealing, and the on-location promos don’t seem to be 1 of them.
As tacky as multiple will say this promo was once, The Brothers of Destruction took it critically sufficient to make it efficient.
Nia Jax and Ember Moon def. Dana Brook and Tamina
If this event had a tagline it might be “where are they now?”
WWE has teased Tamina vs. Nia Jax 2 occasions because the get started of Survivor Series 2017 and each occasions lovers have been manner into it.
If a girls’s tag team name department have been established, a Tamina-Nia Jax tag team can be textbook WWE, however I’d be right here for it.
After Dana Brook received the makeshift post-match Battle Royal, Michael Cole could not had been any further keen to modify gears.
Ronda Rousey Segment with the Bella Twins
TMZ is getting into some lovely sketchy waters through operating tales on a reputable information web site designed to additional WWE angles.
The legacy of the Divas Championship is that it will get a ton of warmth when a heel WWE Superstar makes point out of it.
In an bizarre mixture of lady energy and chauvinism, Ronda Rousey’s “you leached off the success of your men” remark galvanized the misogynists in Philadelphia.
This could be an overreaction, however Ronda Rousey went from a under reasonable to an excellent promo before our very eyes on this section, if now not for just 1 evening.
Dolph Ziggler def. Dean Ambrose
Dean Ambrose is also suffering as a singles performer this present day, however he makes for an excellent Raphael of The Shield.
At this level, I’d relatively see The Shield vs. 3MB than The Shield vs. the Dogs of War once more.
Finn Balor def. Jinder Mahal
As WWE continues to woo the Bullet Club, the important thing might be to stay them clear of asking Finn Balor about leaping send.
Bobby Lashley, along Lio Rush, destroying ROH and New Japan Pro Wrestling alumni would catapult him to heel superstardom.
Bobby Lashley def. Tyler Breeze
In addition to being an excellent employee and an out of this world supervisor, Lio Rush may be an achieved chanter.
Tyler Breeze if truth be told were given his fair proportion of offense bearing in mind everyone within the enviornment knew how this 1 was once going to finish.
Mickie James and Alexa Bliss Confront Trish Stratus and Lita
This section died a gradual death till Trish Stratus and Lita stored it with their tribute to Allen Iverson’s famed “practice” tirade.
AOP def. El Conquistador
The longer this event went on the place Michael Cole hadn’t discovered this wasn’t Kurt Angle, the extra Tom Phillips closed in on him as the highest play-by-play man within the corporate.
AOP, a couple of monster heels, has long past from squashing 2 jobbers every week to just 1.
Natalya def. Ruby Riott by way of Disqualification
The Riott Squad used ketchup and mustard to defile Natalya’s locker room. Still now not slightly a insurrection however they are getting nearer.
Natalya, Ronda Rousey’s easiest good friend, teased that she had backup and it became out to be Bayley. Natalya, nonetheless Rousey’s easiest good friend, teased she had much more backup and it became out to be Sasha Banks.
Apollo Crews Confronts Elias
Apollo Crews admitted he does not play the guitar, he does not sing and he is actually now not that humorous. This should be a part of WWE’s modern day star-making procedure.
WWE is in the middle of a supervisor renaissance and if Apollo Crews goes to show his profession round, he will want 1 too.
The Shield def. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre
I believe like any this rigidity with Dean Ambrose may have ended through now with a Shield participation trophy.
“Cracks in the Shield” needed to had been 1 of the phrases that WWE trademarked this previous week given the choice of occasions it was once uttered on remark.
At the belief of this event, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose have been oddly fast to forgive every different after nearly coming to blows moments previous.
Sales for “Get These Hands” t-shirts must see an uptick now that his heel workforce has dissolved.
