Monday Night Raw showcased incredible some incredible heading to Survivor Series and at the Capital One Arena in Washington D.C. so many twists and turns came as a shock to the WWE Universe


In a charged standoff preceding Survivor Series: WarGames, Seth Rollins, Cody Rhodes, Jey Uso, and Sami Zayn confronted their rivals: the imposing Damian Priest, Finn Bálor, and the duo known as “Dirty” Dom and JD McDonagh. It was Priest who boldly claimed supremacy, asserting his role as the spearhead of The Judgment Day faction.

“I am the leader of The Judgement Day!”


Seth Rollins & Sami Zayn vs. Dominik Mysterio & JD McDonagh (No Contest)

The clash between the World Heavyweight Champion Seth "Freakin" Rollins and ally Sami Zayn against North American Champion “Dirty” Dom and his partner JD McDonagh spiralled into chaos, ending unresolved as a no-contest.

The climax of the encounter was marked by an unexpected disruption from The Judgment Day, abruptly ending the tag team contest.

Chaos reigned supreme post-match when Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso dived into the fray, attempting to restore balance against The Judgment Day and McDonagh's onslaught on Rollins and Zayn. The resulting melee provoked the Raw General Manager, Adam Pearce, to a fury, leading to his decision to expel all the extraneous WarGames combatants from the building, ensuring they would not be present for the anticipated WWE Undisputed Tag Team Title Match finale.


Shinsuke Nakamura Defeats. Otis

Shinsuke Nakamura, the King of Strong Style, remained unassailable on his trail of conquest, showcasing his formidable prowess by besting Alpha Academy’s premier athlete, Otis, with not one, but three Kinshasas — a testament to his overwhelming finishing power.

As the raucous crowd bore witness to the aftermath of this dynamic skirmish, Nakamura stood tall, his chest heaving, his eyes alight with the fire of competition. In a moment of brash defiance, he turned his attention to Chad Gable, the cerebral strategist of Alpha Academy.

With the arena still echoing from the impact of the match, Nakamura's abrupt shove to Gable was a clear and deliberate dare, an invitation to step into the fray, signalling that Nakamura's appetite for battle was far from satiated.

This act of aggression left the audience in anticipation of a new rivalry, wondering if Chad Gable would accept the silent challenge laid before him.


Tegan Nox Defeats. Piper Niven

Guided by the unparalleled expertise of veteran Natalya, Tegan Nox made a formidable comeback from her convalescence to confront WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Piper Niven in the squared circle. As the match reached its crescendo, Natalya, known as The Queen of Harts, intervened to thwart Chelsea Green's unsanctioned involvement, dispatching her with precision off the ring apron.

Concurrently, Niven, reeling from Nox's signature Shiniest Wizard, desperately sought reprieve, stretching to place her foot on the ropes — a savvy move to break the count.

However, Nox, with her resilience on full display, sidestepped a potential crushing counterattack from the reigning champion and executed a nimble roll-up, securing a swift and decisive three-count victory against all odds.

This turn of events not only marked a significant win for Nox but also underscored her tenacity and tactical acumen within the ring.


Ludwig Kaiser Defeats. Tommaso Ciampa  

Despite being banished from the ring earlier due to his interference, Imperium's Giovanni Vinci made a dramatic and unexpected return during the climactic phase of the match. In a strategic and stealthy manoeuvre, Vinci delivered a devastating drive-by to Johnny Gargano of #DIY, who was at that moment vulnerable at ringside.

The sudden assault caught everyone off-guard, sowing chaos and diverting attention from the match's critical juncture. Amidst the ensuing turmoil, Ludwig Kaiser capitalized on the opportunity to cunningly ensnare Tommaso Ciampa in a roll-up, securing a pinfall by the slimmest of margins.

Kaiser's crafty victory was a classic example of Imperium's tactical acumen, ensuring that even in the face of adversity and potential disqualification, they could orchestrate a win by leveraging every moment to their advantage.


Xia Li Defeats. Indi Hartwell

During an intense solo bout, Indi Hartwell found herself ensnared in the same web of defeat previously spun for Xia Li's challengers, Candice LeRae and Becky Lynch. Li, the formidable Superstar, unleashed a kick of such power and precision that it left Hartwell reeling, compelling the referee to end the match in a decisive call.

The drama didn't subside with the match's end. Becky Lynch, undaunted and seeking retribution, stormed the scene with her signature fiery presence. She boldly confronted Li, making it crystal clear that she was itching for a skirmish.

With a steely gaze and unwavering voice, Lynch announced her intent to face Li in the ring, setting the stage for a one-on-one clash slated for the following week. This declaration from "The Man" promised a confrontation charged with anticipation, as fans would eagerly await the bell that would kick off their much-anticipated encounter.


The Miz Defeats. Ivar

In the high-stakes contest for the number one spot to challenge Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship, The Miz found himself locked in combat with the formidable Ivar.

The match's tension escalated when Ivar, perched precariously on the top rope, engaged in a heated exchange with "Big" Bronson Reed, who was ringside, observing the action closely.

The A-Lister, ever the opportunist, seized this moment of distraction. With cunning agility, he toppled the Viking Raider from his aerial domain, quickly leveraging the ropes to secure a cunning, if not controversial, victory.

The reverberations of the bell signified the end of the official match, but not the end of hostilities. Reed, not content to remain a bystander, asserted his dominance over the disoriented Ivar.

In a display of sheer power and agility belying his size, Reed launched his attack, delivering the Tsunami—his signature splash that has felled many opponents.

This post-match onslaught left the audience in no doubt of Reed's capabilities and perhaps set the stage for future confrontations inside the squared circle.


Damien Priest & Finn Bálor Defeats. Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso | Undisputed WWE Tag Team Title Match

In the heated run-up to Survivor Series' WarGames, the team of Cody Rhodes and "Main Event" Jey Uso set their sights on wrestling away the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship from the clutches of the formidable duo, Finn Bálor and Damian Priest.

The anticipation was palpable as fans waited to see if the titles would change hands before the high-profile event.

Amid the climactic face-off, with tensions and stakes sky-high, the unexpected occurred.

Drew McIntyre made a thunderous entrance, his presence alone altering the fabric of the match.

With a swift and brutal Claymore Kick, he struck Jey Uso outside the ring, effectively halting the momentum Uso and Rhodes had been building.

McIntyre then hurled a dazed Uso back into the squared circle, directly into the path of a predatory Bálor who, seizing the moment, quickly pinned Uso, ensuring that he and Priest retained their championship glory.

This pivotal intervention by McIntyre not only swayed the outcome of the match but also injected a fresh dose of intrigue into the ongoing saga of these elite Superstars as they barreled toward WarGames.
