The 11/12/18 edition of WWE Raw, out of the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, just wrapped up. We’ve got the WWE Raw results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #1329 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

Save Yourselves for Survivor Series


In a rather unusual opening segment, we started in the middle of the tag team battle royal, the winners of which would become the Raw Tag Team Captains for Survivor Series. Braun Strowman interrupted before things got very far, however, forcing everyone to leave the ring so he could take the spotlight.

Strowman grabbed a chair and a mic and patiently waited for Baron Corbin to join him (and get those hands). Instead of Corbin, Stephanie McMahon made her way to the ring. She said that although she sympathized with Strowman, she couldn’t allow him to hold Raw hostage. She tried to rally Strowman against her brother, Shane, but he was not interested; his sole focus was Corbin.

In an attempt to restore order, Stephanie agreed to give Strowman another shot at the Universal Championship, as well as a match against Baron Corbin with the stipulation of his choice – as long as he proved himself at Survivor Series.

Ronda Rousey then joined the conversation, immediately ripping the microphone from Stephanie’s hands. The women’s champ said she was tired of listening to Becky Lynch’s threats and was ready to put the beatdown on someone. She advanced toward Stephanie, but Baron Corbin intervened. He reminded both Strowman and Rousey that they needed to save their aggression for Survivor Series. Corbin tried to lecture Rousey individually, but she did not take it well and tossed him to the ground before he could say much.

Strowman held it together for the most part but promised to neuter Corbin after Survivor Series, at which point Baron and Stephanie wisely chose to take their leave.


Ember Moon vs. Tamina


Alexa Bliss kept a close eye on the action from backstage, still making her decisions in respect to who would be given the honor of joining her Survivor Series team. With that knowledge, Tamina and Ember were each out to prove that they deserved a spot.

Ember Moon was about the seal the victory with an Eclipse when Nia Jax swept her feet from the ropes, giving Tamina the edge she needed to defeat The Shenom. After the bell, Nia continued to punish Ember, leaving her lying in the ring while she walked away proudly with her new friend.

Winner: Tamina


Rollins Interview // Ambrose Gives an Answer


Corey Graves welcomed Seth Rollins to the ring for an interview concerning his match against Shinsuke Nakamura this Sunday at Survivor Series. It didn’t take long for the focus to be shifted toward Dean Ambrose, however. Rollins said that he would give Nakamura his full attention on Sunday, but was too distracted with Ambrose to be worried about the match at that moment.

After Rollins claimed that Ambrose wasn’t man enough to face him, The Lunatic Fringe appeared on the big screen to give his reasoning for turning on his Shield brother. He thought The Shield would make him stronger, but wasting energy concerning himself with the wellbeing of Seth and Roman (while they treated him as less than) only made him weak. Beyond that, he wasn’t sorry for his actions, and to prove it, threw his Shield gear into a literal dumpster fire.


Bálor Against Bullies


We thought Kurt Angle was about to come to the ring, but Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre made their entrance instead. McIntyre bragged, in graphic detail, about his recent accomplishments: breaking up The Shield and defeating Kurt Angle.

Finn Bálor had heard enough and came out to put a stop to McIntyre’s bullying by challenging him to a match. McIntyre agreed to a match, but one against his partner in crime, Dolph Ziggler, not himself. But to give his pal a leg up, he headbutted Bálor before leaving the ring.


Finn Bálor vs. Dolph Ziggler


Despite being at a disadvantage, Bálor continued with the match against Ziggler and even held the upper hand for much of the action. McIntyre saw his partner struggling and attempted to stop Bálor’s momentum, but Bálor was too quick for him and knocked him back before turning his attention back to Ziggler. After a few more minutes of fun, Bálor took the victory.

Backstage, Bálor bumped into Stephanie McMahon, who rewarded his efforts with a spot on the men’s Survivor Series team. McIntyre and Ziggler appeared on the scene, ready to attack Bálor, but were also given places on the team instead. Stephanie said that the three of them were more than welcome to tear each other apart, but they would have to wait until after Sunday.

Winner: Finn Bálor


Ronda Rousey Interview


Charly Caruso interviewed Ronda Rousey regarding her feud with Becky Lynch. Rousey listed her accolades while putting Becky down, once again reminding The Man that she is more than ready for a fight this Sunday. Nia Jax and Tamina approached her post-monologue to remind Rousey that once she was done with Becky Lynch, Jax would be coming for her title.


Ruby Riott Apologizes


The Riott Squad came to the ring, where Ruby Riott proceeded to apologize for breaking Jim Neidhart’s sunglasses after the match against Natalya last week. The apology was quite un-Ruby-like, but what came after made much more sense. Ruby took back everything she said, laughing at Natalya and saying that she should have humiliated her even further.

To defend her father’s honor, Natalya ambushed Ruby but was attacked by The Riott Squad before she could do much damage.


Tag Team Battle Royal

Winners Become Raw Tag Team Captains


Because Braun Strowman interrupted the first attempt, the tag team battle royal was restarted. For such a large match, this happened very quickly. It felt like the action had barely begun and it was already down to The Ascension and Bobby Roode/Chad Gable. Another moment and Chad Gable and Bobby Roode had defeated The Ascension to become the Survivor Series Raw Tag Team Captains.

Winner: Bobby Roode and Chad Gable


The Beast is Ready for Battle


Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, and his advocate, Paul Heyman, made their way to the ring, where Heyman cut his usual introductory promo before discussing his client’s recent conquering of The Monster, Braun Strowman. He then moved on to AJ Styles, saying that The Phenomenal One was Lesnar’s number one target and would be defeated in spectacular fashion at Survivor Series.

Who would interrupt this speech but Jinder Mahal, who came to Heyman and Lesnar as a friend, claiming that his mantra would help The Beast in his match on Sunday. Lesnar did say that he was interested, but it turned out to only be a ploy to get Mahal and the Singh Brothers in the ring so he could beat them down.


Bobby Lashley vs. Elias


Bobby Lashley was busy making various poses in the ring (while Lio Rush narrated) when the sound of Elias’ guitar strum stopped them in their tracks. Elias was on the phone with “child services” stating that Lashley had kidnapped a 10-year-old child (Lio Rush) weeks ago and had to be stopped.

Lashley challenged him to come to the ring, which he did, but not before picking a killer riff and asking the audience who wanted to walk with Elias.

Bobby Lashley may have defeated Elias, securing the last spot on the men’s Survivor Series team, but Elias made him pay for it by attacking his manager, Lio Rush, post-match.

Winner: Bobby Lashley


Women’s Survivor Series Team


Alexa Bliss was finally ready to announce her choices for the Women’s Survivor Series Team. She said that she chose carefully, as she would need the best of the best to bring down SmackDown Live. The first four women were Natalya, Mickie James, Nia Jax, and Tamina. As for the fifth member, Bliss needed to find out who valued victory over friendship and pitted Sasha Banks and Bayley against each other to determine who would take the last spot.


Sasha Banks vs. Bayley

Winner Joins Women’s Survivor Series Team


Although Sasha Banks and Bayley mended their friendship fairly recently, neither woman was going to let that fact stop them from doing everything they could to take the final place on the Survivor Series team.

In the end, their efforts didn’t matter, however, as the other four members of Team Raw attacked both Sasha and Bayley before either could take the win. Bliss announced Ruby Riott as the fifth member but didn’t give an explanation as to why she set the match between Banks and Bayley in the first place.

Backstage, Becky Lynch was shown with Ronda Rousey in a brutal Dis-Arm-Her. The Man then appeared on the stage and, along with the other women of SmackDown, went to work beating down Team Raw. Ronda Rousey attempted to defend her fellow women of Raw but was hit with a chair by a bloodied Becky Lynch (which provided a fantastic visual) before she and the rest of the blue squad escaped through the crowd.

Stephanie McMahon was shown lighting into Baron Corbin, telling him that he had a lot to do before Sunday if he wanted to save his position as acting General Manager.

Winner: N/A
