RAW Recap - 10/1/18; The Brothers Cause a Destruction

We're six days away from Super Showdown in Melbourne, Australia, Shawn Michaels is back on Raw to discuss Triple H vs. The Undertaker for the last time ever!

Dean Ambrose kicks off Raw tonight answering questions from Charly Caruso in the ring. Charly wants to know where Dean’s head at after last week. Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler planted seeds in the mind of Ambrose and the WWE Universe with the possibility of Dean leaving The Shield and/or turning on them entirely. Ambrose goes on a tirade definitely making it seem like he was planning on leaving The Shield and not in a nice way. Ultimately Ambrose tells us we need to stop trying to get inside his mind and understand that The Shield is not a brand or a business, it is a brotherhood and Dean Ambrose will always do battles with his brothers. Ambrose goes to exit the ring when Acting Raw General Manager Baron Corbin comes out. Corbin gives Ambrose three choices, face Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship, Roman for the Universal Championship, or Braun Strowman. Ambrose would rather face Corbin but Corbin makes the choice for Ambrose. Dean will go one on one with Braun Strowman right now.

Braun Strowman def. Dean Ambrose via DQ: Strowman dominated the majority of the beginning rag-dolling Ambrose. Dean fought back and even got a Dirty Deeds off but it only halted Braun’s offense for a moment. Braun returned to dominating the match hitting Ambrose with a powerslam. Instead of going for the cover Braun decided to do more damage going for a second powerslam. Before Braun could drop Ambrose, Roman comes out and makes the save. Rollins appears out of nowhere for added backup.

Raw GM Corbin makes sure The Shield don’t get off easy. Rollins will face Drew McIntyre later while Ziggler will face Roman Reigns right now.

Coming back from break we see Dean Ambrose in the trainer’s room. Rollins came in to check on Dean who isn’t happy Roman came out to save him. Dean think it’s funny that he could be Intercontinental Champion right now....

Roman Reigns wanted to put the Universal Championship on the line for this match against Dolph Ziggler but Corbin put a stop to that. Reigns won’t be allowed to defend the Universal Championship until WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

Roman Reigns def. Dolph Ziggler: Pretty good match with a lot of close calls. Dolph did a good job of predicting Roman’s moves and catching Roman off guard. Roman kicked out of a Zig Zag while Dolph kicked out of a Superman Punch. Roman splits Dolph in half with a Spear and gets the win.

Ronda Rousey def. Ruby Riott: Great match from both women. Ruby really took the fight to Ronda and looked like a real threat to Ronda. The Raw Women’s Champion looked really good in the ring. Ronda is really putting her arsenal of offense together and the moves look a little crisper. Ronda drops Ruby with her twisting Samoan Drop then locks in an arm bar for the win. Again, great match.

Konnor def. Bobby Roode: That’s wins back to back weeks for Konnor. He wins with a gut wrench side slam.

B-Team def. The Revival: I’m surprised by this since last week The Revival had an incredible match. Furthermore it was for nothing as Authors of Pain came out and destroyed the B-Team. Drake Maverick isn’t dressed like a goof! Take what you can give I guess.

Braun Strowman insinuates that Dolph Ziggler might be the weak link in their alliance. He gives props to Dean Ambrose and calls him, “one tough bastard”.

Drew McIntyre def. Seth Rollins: Another great match from Rollins. The match really played up the size difference between both men but also Rollins’ crazy strength. Ziggler comes running down distracting Rollins who turns right into a Claymore Kick. McIntyre and Ziggler didn’t even bother to celebrate as they continued to put the boots to Rollins. Universal Champion Roman Reigns runs down to even the odds but Strowman comes down putting the odds in his team’s favor. Dean Ambrose runs down with an axe handle but that doesn’t get him very far. Strowman, McIntyre, and Ziggler leave The Shield laying in the ring.

It’s been years since I heard a main show crowd get this mad at someone. This was absolutely incredible. Probably a moment that will go down in history:

Kevin Owens def. Bobby Lashley: Nothing too out of the box to note here. Kevin worked the arm of Lashley who was still too powerful. Elias puts Lio Rush in a headlock to distract Lashley. Owens gets a schoolboy roll up for the win. After the match Elias and Owens beat down Lashley. Rush tried to help but got knocked out like a fly. Corey Graves has a point, Lashley is teaming with John Cena at Super-Showdown but we haven’t seen Cena in months plus Cena and Lashley have never teamed up before.

Bayley def. Alicia Fox

Shawn Michaels had something to say about Undertaker vs. Triple H and all Hell broke loose, literally:

I enjoyed tonight’s Raw. Elias setting the crowd on fire and the end was the highlights for me. What did you think of the show?
