Beginning of WWE Raw – Kurt Angle
WWE Raw kicks off with Kurt Angle approaching the crowd talking about Survivor Series which is where he debuted many years ago.
He announced matches of the following:
- Alexa Bliss vs. Natalya
- The Miz vs. Baron Corbin
- The Usos vs. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose
- Jinder Mahal vs. Brock Lesnar
- Women’s 5 on 5
- Men’s 5 on 5
The Miz’s music hits slating the Olympic hero for being a glory hunter and it was supposed to be 2 on 5, saying he doesn’t deserve to be in that ring and should resign immediately. They then take ‘Shield position’ on the apron looking to attack Kurt and the Shield music hits.
Dean & Seth head down through the crowd and slide in the ring to fight by Kurt side. Miz goes on to say the odds aren’t in your favour. Kurt then makes a match. Miz & The Bar vs. Dean, Seth and … AJ Styles.

AJ Styles wins with a Phenomenal Forearm. Awesome match to kick off WWE Raw.
After the match Kane’s music hits and storms the ring giving a chokeslam to both members of the Shield.
Kane stays in the ring and makes a promo about Braun Strowman. Saying he isn’t a monster and is just trash. He said he’s Raws only monster and says now he wants competition…or else. Then Finn Balor’s music hits clearly challenged the Big Red Machine.

Asuka WWE Raw Debut – Asuka def. Emma
Alexa Bliss Promo
Alexa comes out saying she is undervalued in the WWE and tries to get the crowd to chant ‘you deserve it’ but they don’t. Mickie James then comes out, no talk, just straight up kicked her in the face and then said ‘you do deserve it!’.
Kurt, Sasha & Bayley Backstage
‘It’s time to talk Survivor Series’. Kurt goes on to talk about the captain of women’s team Raw. Alicia turns up kicking off saying she deserves to be captain. Kurt then announces they will settle it in the ring.
Elias Samson Promo/Song
Elias does his usual stuff ‘who wants to walk with Elias?’ etc and starts to sing. However there seems to be some interference with his microphone that keeps interrupting his song. He then goes ringside grabs a mic and starts kicking off and the sound technicians in the back. Then Jason Jordan comes out, was clearly him.
Jason Jordan def. Elias Samson via DQ
Elias smashed a guitar over the shoulder of Jason Jordan earning the victory via DQ. There was also a big welt and Jordan’s shoulder.
Brock Lesnar Responds to Jinder Mahal
Brock clearly not fearing Jinder Mahal, Paul Heyman goes onto belittle Jinder saying he isn’t worthy to even be in the same ring. Clear winner will be Brock I’m pretty sure.
Kalisto announces that he will invoke his rematch claus on 205 Live and announcing there will be a 5 on 5 tonight.
On one side: ‘Team Lucha Lucha’ Cedric Alexander, Rich Swann, Mustafa Ali, Gran Metalik & Kalisto vs. Drew Gulak, Tony Nese, Noam Dar, Ariya Daivari & of course Enzo Amore.
Enzo’s team is apparently being called the Zo Train, obviously a play on words of The Godfathers ‘Ho Train’
Alicia Fox def. Bayley Sasha Banks
Alicia Fox is now the captain of Team Raw at Survivor Series.

Smackdown Live Invasion
Kurt Angle came out to announce his teams for Survivor series. Shane McMahon music then hits and it shows him and the Smackdown Live teams walking through the crowd.
They surround the ring and then Kurt Angle eventually exits the ring and runs for his life. Shane McMahon then says ‘Get him’.
WWE Raw is now ‘under seige’ and they storm backstage attack anyone and everyone, smashing up monitors and causing chaos. Attacking everyone in the locker rooms in an all out war.
The Shield tries to ambush them but they quickly outnumbered them and then take Kurt Angle hostage dragging him to the ring in front of Shane McMahon. Shane is then face to face with Angle. He says bring your gold medal and your Raw roster and let’s finish what we started. Kurt looking like he was about to cry.
Hopefully they are setting up Angle vs. Shane McMahon. WWE Raw goes off the air with Kurt Angle Angle standing alone in the ring.
