That’s all WWE has announced ahead of time tonight, however we know we’ll get more King of the Ring and Queen’s Crown tournament matches. On top of that, more from the budding feud between RK-Bro and AJ Styles & Omos, a possible rebuttal from Jeff Hardy to Austin Theory, Damian Priest on the lookout for a new challenger to the United States Championship, and maybe a rare “Bearcat” sighting. Who knows?
And that’s the preview for tonight’s RAW. Our live coverage will begin from 8PM right here. Let us know if you’re excited about any of it and remember to hit the refresh link below and enjoy the show!
We go live to WWE RAW in San Francisco where the announcers make a big deal out of the tag team main event with Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks taking on Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair.
Out comes the Scottish warrior, Drew McIntyre with his sword. Drew says he won’t get to say this anymore so indulge him: “welcome to Monday Night RAW!” Drew mentions some of the big matches coming up at Crown Jewel and he says he has waited months for this final shot at the WWE Championship. Drew is about t tell a story when out comes the Champion, Big E!
Big E says he understands exactly why Drew is so desperate for this match. He has tasted the juices of glory and they are sweet. So sweet that he let them drip down his face, down his neck and between his nipples. Big E turns alittle serious and tells Drew he can never take the title from him. “The train has alreadd left the station”, and McIntyre can either get on board or stay on those tracks and get run over. Drew says he gets that Big E is on cloud 9 but he is going to run through Big E just like he did Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton, and the rest.
The Uso’s come out and joke about who they think might win the match between Big E and McIntyre. Drew asks what they’re even doing here and The Uso’s say you do whatever you want when you run with the Tribal Chief. They know Roman will beat Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel but they want to know who will be WWE Champion ahead of Survivor Series. They say they already have plans for New Day on SmackDown, and whoever wins between Drew and Big E will be facing Roman Reigns and that’s a death wish. The Uso’s challenge them to a match tonight and they both accept but start bickering and The Uso’s attack them and leave them lying.
New Day is interviewed backstage and asked what will happen if the two of them have to face each other in the King of the Ring Tournament but they just laugh and make their entrances.
The match begins with a handshake, thena lock-up. Ricochet wrenches the arm but Woods flips out and hits a shoulder tackle. Ricochet kicks the chest of Woods a few times but eats a forearm to the face. Ricochet fires back with one, then kicks the legs of Woods. Xavier chops Ricochet, then sends him to the apron and drops him. Woods goes to the top rope but Ricochet leaps up and hits a high-angle superplex and both men are down!
Back live and Ricochet hits a running crossbody for a two-count. Ricochet stays in control until Woods counters a suplex by hanging him on the top rope. Woods hits a kick to the back of hanging Ricochet, then lands a leg drop from the middle rope for a near-fall. Woods deadlifts Ricochet into a suplex and slams him for another near-fall. Ricochet lifts Woods for a rolling fireman’s carry and a kick to the chest.
Woods rolls outside to regroup but Ricochet hits a dive over the ring post to wipe him out! Ricochet gets back inside and hits a suicide dive, then attempts one more but Woods sidesteps it and he hits the barricade! Woods gets Ricochet back inside, goes up top, walks along the top rope, and hits a flying elbow drop for the win!
We see a replay of last week’s happenings between RK-Bro, AJ Styles & Omos. Orton is sitting backstage and Riddle appears, telling him someone challenged Omos to a match tonight. Randy knows it’s Riddle, who says they’ve got so much momentum and asks Randy what the plan is. Orton says there is no plan and that Riddle is on his own. Riddle doesn’t believe him and says he’ll see him out there.
Ali starts with Benjamin but Shelton immediately knocks Mansoor off the apron. Ali attacks but Benjamin hits a flapjack and tags Cedric. Ali quickly gets the better of Alexander and tags Mansoor, who comes in flying with an enziguiri and some clotheslines. Ali tags in again and they hit a backbreaker/double stomp. Ali dropkicks Shelton off the apron and Ali follows-up with a suicide dive. Ali looks for a 450 but Cedric avoids it and lands a Michonoku Driver for the win!
After the match Mansoor helps Ali up but Mustafa shoves him down and shouts “I’m sick of this!”
We see a replay of when Shayna Baszler stomped the arm of Nia Jax and she squealed like a hog. Baszler then did the same to Eva Marie and tried to do it last week to Dana Brooke but Doudrop stopped it. Baszler makes her entrance and she’ll face Brooke after the break.
Brooke runs at Baszler but gets sidestepped. Baszler beats Brooke in the corner but gets elbowed. Brooke lands a flurry of strikes and slams Shayna into the buckles, then looks for a handspring elbow but gets grabbed in the Kirifuda clutch. Dana escapes and pins Shayna for a near-fall. Baszler catches her with an ankle lock but Dana sends her into the ropes. Baszler rolls through a pin and hits a knee to the face for the win!
Charlotte Flair cuts a promo backstage in which she says she couldn’t care less about Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks or Bianca Belair. Flair says Belair only cares to ride the coattails of others. As for Banks? She’s beat her more times than she can count. And she’d love to slap the smile off the face of Becky and take the SmackDown Women’s Championship as well.
Riddle is in the ring and out comes AJ Styles and Omos. Before the match can start, Riddle gets the microphone. He says he’s been doing a lot of thinking and he can see Omos loves his protein because he’s swole. He continues talking, then shouts “now Randy!” but nothing happens. Riddle says Randy must be waiting for a code word so he shouts random things and sings Orton’s music. AJ gets a microphone and says Riddle is stalling for time but Omos is going to rip his arms off. Riddle starts a Randy chant and the referee calls for the bell.
Riddle immediately slides out and beats Styles against the apron, but Omos drags him into the ring and throws him. Omos spashes Riddle in the corner, then hits a chokeslam and puts a foot on his chest but AJ tells him to wait. Styles says they can beat the crap out of him as long as they want. Styles asks Omos to hit a roundhouse kick, so the big man hits a kick to the face. AJ asks for multiple replays of the kick. Omos lifts Riddle and hits the chokebomb at AJ’s request. A boot on the chest pins Riddle.
AJ gets in the ring and says he isn’t done with Riddle. Before they can do anything, Randy’s music hits. AJ and Omos look for him but Orton is nowhere to be seen. Omos goes outside and looks for him but Orton appears behind AJ and hits the RKO! Orton and Riddle retreat with the tag titles.
Drew McIntyre approaches Big E backstage and asks what the Hell happened out there. Big E says they can beat the brakes off each other at Crown Jewel, but until then they should be on the same page. Drew agrees and says it’s obvious Roman is worried about them because The Uso’s can’t wipe their ass without his permission. Drew says it would be great if they could beat The Uso’s. Big E says he saw Drew getting excited earlier when he talked about his nipples and calls him a freak, then do a silly handshake and bump fists.
The All Mighty, Bobby Lashley comes to the ring and we see a replay of Goldberg confronted him. Lashley says people are asking why he challenged Goldberg to a No Holds Barred match. He says Goldberg talked about ending his life and that’s not behaviour befitting of a WWE Hall of Famer or a father. He says the myth of Goldberg has faded and he’s an old dog that eeds to be put down. At Crown Jewel he will end Goldberg’s career and there will be no misunderstandings this time. Lashley says goldberg can’t hurt, can’t beat and damn sure can’t kill the All Mighty.
Sasha Banks cuts a promo and says Charlotte clearly thinks she’s in charge but the Champion is. And right now Lynch is holding onto that title for dear life. Banks tells Bianca to follow her lead, and the other two don’t compare. And after they implode on each other, she will beat Charlotte. Then she will beat Bianca and Becky at Crown Jewel.
The match begins and Hardy avoids Theory and beats him into the corner. Theory elbows Jeff and goes to the apron for a rolling dropkick. Theory applies a submission and out comes Reginald, Drew Gulak, Drake Maverick and Akira Tozawa. They run away and R-Truth comes into the ring. Theory swings for Truth but he ducks him and slides out. Hardy htis Thery with an inverted atomic drop, then a Twist of Fate. Jeff goes up top for a Swanton Bomb but Theory avoids it, then rolls him up with the tights for the win!
Bianca Belair cuts a promo in which she says her and Charlotte are from very different backgrounds. She fought for success using grit and determination, while Charlotte thinks you need to be ruthless. Belair says she beat Banks at WrestleMania and yes, she might have lost it to Becky in thirty seconds, but it won’t take thirty seconds for her to return her to Becky no-belts. Belair says she will leave Crown Jewel as the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
The match gets underway and Mahal takes the back and slams Kofi down. Kofi tries to fight back but Jinder drops him again. Kingston hits a splash, then attacks Jinder in the corner.

Becky Lynch is backstage and she says everyone said her piece about her but it doesn’t matter, she beat them all. She’s away five steps ahead. She doesn’t want to team with Charltote tonight but it doesn’t matter, she’ll happily beat Sasha and Bianca. Then she will walk out of Crown Jewel the same way she walked in.

Mansoor is interviewed backstage and says he has no idea what is going on with Ali. Mustafa appears and says he is a giant waste of time. He tried to help him survive but he’s been nothing more than a fanboy and he doesn’t deserve to be in WWE. Mansoor says he will be eaten alive but he should have told him from day one that he’s a loser, a nothing. Ali attacks Mansoor from behind and tosses him into some production cases, then kicks his chest repeatedly and screams at him.
