Tonight was the night of champions where, some won the championships while others became the number one contenders. Monday night Raw was all about the women championship between queen Charlotte (daughter of Ric Flair) and the boss Sasha Banks (cousin of Snoop Dogg). It was a fighting night where the wrestlers were being set for the clash at Tables Ladders and Chairs, a very renowned event which will happen next week in Dallas, Texas. We got the new women champion in form of Sasha Banks. On the other hand, Roman Reigns became the number one contender for Universal championship against the champion Kevin Owens setting the things for WWE Roadblock.
Surprises during the Monday Night Raw
Monday night Raw was completely surprising when Paul Heyman (advocate of Brock Lesnar) announced that his client will be entering 30 man Royal Rumble match. This means that, Goldberg is the first contender and now Brock Lesnar is the second one. He also said that Brock Lesnar is not going to take Goldberg lightly and this time Brock Lesnar is going to destroy Goldberg completely, once for in all.
R-Truth w/ Goldust vs. Braun Strowman
Truth tried to tackle the monster early but Strowman knocked him down with a clothesline leveling it with a splash to the corner. The match ended when Strowman gave a powerful slam for a quick pinfall. After the match ended, Sami Zayn tried to help Goldberg but got a severe beating again from Brawn Strowman on Monday night raw. Raw general manager Mick Foley came in to stop the brawl.
Winner: Braun Strowman
Cruiserweight Division Match Cedric Alexander vs. Tony Nese w/ Drew Gulak
Cedric Alexander dominated the match from right go. He tackled both his opponent Tony Nese and his partner Drew Gulak with Jaw in the shin, the super kicks but he got distracted when Drew Gulak interfered between the match. This gave a chance to Nese and he took out Alexander with a pumphandle slam for a win during the Cruiserweight division match on Monday Night Raw.
Winner: Tony Nese
Earlier tonight, during the Monday night raw backstage, Seth Rollins took out Chris Jericho in the car parking and then gave him pedigree on the car roof top.
Rusev w/ Lana vs. Enzo Amore
Before the match, Enzo informed Rusev that his wife got to see all of him last week. He suggests Lana was thinking about a certified G “stuffing her turkey” over Thanksgiving. As soon as the match started, Rusev gave a low blow to Enzo. The match was disqualified and Enzo Amore wins the match. Big Cass ran down the ramp to check on his partner and Rusev leaves the ring screaming that “You never talk about my wife.”
Winner: Enzo Amore by DQ
Cruiserweight Division Match: Rich Swann vs. Noam Dar
Swann challenges Brian Kendrick for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on tomorrow night’s premiere of 205 live on the WWE Network. Monday night raw saw a good fight between Rich Swann and Noam Dar, Darr took Swann early on with a left arm but Swann took Darr with a Rolling Thunder which Darr counters only to get sweet chin music on his neck.
Winner: Rich Swann
There was a bit of movie shot sequence in a bar where both Sheamus and Cesaro kicks some ass of other people in the bar. The shot was quite nice for the Monday night raw audience.
WWE Universal Title shot: Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns
The match even started before the bell as Kevin Owens attacks Reigns from behind. Roman was down but was not out and counters Owens with a kick and then sent him crashing into the barricades. Roman took the ground and gave Kevin Samoa drop in the ring. On the other hand, Kevin tried to play the rules when he pushed the referee in front of Roman Reigns giving himself time and then kicked Roman in the jaw. Roman came back strong with a superman punch and got ready with his final spear only to tackle by Owens for a second and out of nowhere, Roman pins down Kevin Owens to win the match. The match turned out to be one of the finest of Monday night raw.
