Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
Winner Determines Which Brand Receives First Pick in The Draft
This match was originally scheduled to be Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks, but with Banks injured due to her last encounter with Becky, Charlotte Flair took her place. As Becky Lynch was the first pick for Raw and the first pick in the draft overall, she represented Raw, while Charlotte, recent SmackDown Women’s Champion, fought for SmackDown.
Before the match, Charlotte grabbed a microphone and started telling Becky how much she missed her, how she didn’t want to fight anymore, she just wanted to be friends again. Becky let her guard down just a little too much and Charlotte took advantage, forearming her in the face.
This caused a brawl to break out between the two ladies, the officials struggling to pull them apart as the match had yet to begin.
Back from commercial, the officials had things back under control and the match began, Charlotte Flair charging at Becky Lynch and ramming her shoulder into the torso of The Man in the corner.
Becky responded with strikes of her own in the form of a series of kicks in the corner, but Charlotte was soon back on the offensive, gaining control with a combination of strikes and submissions.
Charlotte continued to hold the upper hand until Becky launched her from the apron with a kick, forearming her in the face when her dive missed. Her momentum was quickly brought to a halt, however, as Charlotte slung her face-first into the ring post.
After another commercial break, Becky Lynch was slowly picking up steam, doing everything she could do to wear The Queen down while evading her attacks. With a missile dropkick, it looked like The Man might walk away with the victory, but Charlotte recovered, trapping Becky in a Boston crab.
Charlotte tried to transition to the Figure Four and Becky finally managed to throw her off, but a missed dive from the top rope left her vulnerable to Flair’s Natural Selection. Becky powered out of the pin, went for the Dis-Arm-Her, which Charlotte escaped, connecting with a big boot to The Man, which gained her a near fall.
Charlotte and Becky threw everything they had at each other and more, but neither was able to put the other away, even with the hardest hitting maneuvers in their arsenals. The Queen was visibly becoming frustrated after yet another near fall, then appeared to be formulating a plan, as a grin spread over her face, but before she could put the plan into action, Becky Lynch trapped her in a roll-up and won the match.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Seth Rollins Has Had Enough
“I’ve been trying to move forward with my life, and #TheFiend has just been picking his spots. That ends TONIGHT, because tonight, I’m going FIEND HUNTING.” – @WWERollins #RAW pic.twitter.com/rAsi6enDzl— WWE Universe (@WWEUniverse) October 15, 2019
Backstage with Charly Caruso, Seth Rollins discussed his feud with The Fiend. He said that he was excited for the draft, but wanted to be done with The Fiend once and for all. Rollins thought he had defeated The Fiend at Hell in a Cell, but clearly even his unhinged actions weren’t enough to bring his long-time enemy down.
So tonight, he was taking matters into his own hands – by hunting The Fiend down to move on with his life.
First-Round Draft Picks Are Announced
The first-round draft picks of the second night were as follows:
- Seth Rollins to Raw
- Brock Lesnar to SmackDown
- Charlotte Flair to Raw
- The New Day to SmackDown
- Andrade and Zelina Vega to Raw
Andrade vs. Ali
As Ali had yet to be drafted as of this match, he had extra pressure to shine in order to impress the “network executives” behind the picks. Though an interference from Zelina early on led to Andrade getting the advantage, Ali fought back with a punch to Andrade’s face.
This barely fazed Andrade, however, who flung Ali from the ring, following him to the ringside area where he zoned in on Ali’s left shoulder. Ali sent Andrade flying to the floor, but when he ran to dive onto him, Zelina stepped in his way – so Ali dove over her.
Ali probably would have won the match here, but before he could get back in the ring, Zelina caught him in a head scissors while the referee’s back was turned. This wore Ali down enough for Andrade to take the win shortly after with his Hammerlock DDT.
Second-Round Draft Picks Are Chosen
The second-round draft picks of the second night were as follows:
- The Kabuki Warriors (Asuka and Kairi Sane) to Raw
- Daniel Bryan to SmackDown
- Rusev to Raw
- Bayley to SmackDown
- Aleister Black to Raw

Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode (c) vs. The Viking Raiders
Raw Tag Team Championship Match
Just moments after the match began, The Viking Raiders nearly became the new tag champs with a massive splash from Ivar after Erik had leveled Dolph Ziggler to set up for it, but Robert Roode pulled Ivar away, breaking the pin.
Coming so close to losing their championships caused Ziggler and Roode to become much more aggressive, cutting the ring in half and keeping Erik in their corner. Then, after throwing Erik from the ring, Dolph Ziggler connected with a Zigzag into the announce area.
Back from commercial, Roode and Ziggler continued to assault Erik in their corner, but Erik eventually made it back to his corner. Ivar came in with the hot tag, leveling both Roode and Ziggler. The Raiders set up for the Viking Experience on Ziggler, which Roode broke up, helping Ziggler to hit Erik with a Zigzag/Spinebuster combo.
Dolph Ziggler was in disbelief when Erik refused to let this keep him down, and even more frustrated when he powered out of a pin after a Famouser. Erik searched for his partner, but Robert Roode had taken Ivar out at ringside, and the Viking Raider was still out of commission.
Ziggler and Roode double-teamed Erik, Roode connecting with a Glorious DDT, but before the referee completed the three count, Ivar lept back into the ring, preventing the finish.
Erik escaped from another finishing attempt, tagging Ivar back in, who flattened Roode and Ziggler with a back handspring. Robert Roode rolled out of the ring to get himself together, leaving Ziggler to catch a Viking Experience from Erik and Ivar, which earned them the win and championship gold.
Winner: The Viking Raiders
Third-Round Draft Picks Are Made
The third-round draft picks of the second night were as follows:
- Cedric Alexander to Raw
- Shinsuke Nakamura and Sami Zayn to SmackDown
- Humberto Carrillo to Raw
- Ali to SmackDown
- Erick Rowan to Raw
Aleister Black vs. Eric Young
Eric Young came more prepared than most for this match against the dominating Aleister Black, even dodging his devastating Black Mass kick by rolling out of the ring.
But Aleister Black was both unimpressed and unperturbed, connecting with a knee strike before locking in his Owari Death Clutch, lifting Eric off the ground with the submission and tapping him out.
Winner: Aleister Black
Fourth-Round Draft Picks Are Announced
- Buddy Murphy to Raw
- Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode to SmackDown
- Jinder Mahal to Raw
- Carmella to SmackDown
- R-Truth to Raw
The OC Welcome The Street Profits to Raw
AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson approached The Street Profits backstage as Angelo and Montez were giving their usual rundown of recent events. The OC at first pretended to be excited for The Street Profits being chosen for the same brand (Raw), but soon revealed their true intentions.
AJ Styles began to run down Angelo and Montez, claiming that he didn’t understand why the Raw executives would want The Street Profits since they had all they could ever want with The OC.
This caused a brawl to break out between the two teams, The OC leaving The Street Profits laid out after officials separated them.
Ricochet vs. Shelton Benjamin
Shelton Benjamin, still waiting to hear his name called by one network or another, looked to impress in this match against Ricochet. His strategy was simple: ground the high-flying Ricochet and overpower him on the floor.
While this was effective for a few minutes, Ricochet ultimately escaped, using his explosive movements and high-level agility to overcome Shelton’s power advantage.
In an effort to regain control of the action, Shelton Benjamin hurled Ricochet from the top rope, but Ricochet landed on his feet, responding with a Recoil to win the match.
Contract Signing: Braun Strowman and Tyson Fury
With Jerry “The King” Lawler as moderator, Braun Strowman and Tyson Fury came to the ring to sign a contract making their match at Crown Jewel official.
Braun Strowman said that Tyson was going to get those hands, and after they had both signed the contract, Tyson responded. He said that Braun Strowman had been his and his children’s favorite Superstar for months, but that wouldn’t stop him from beating Strowman down on October 31st.
Braun Strowman demolished the table between them, but Tyson Fury simply said he wasn’t out of his element in any ring, snapped a pen in half, and left the ring with a smile.
Fifth-Round Draft Picks
The fifth-round draft picks were as follows:
- Samoa Joe to Raw
- The Miz to SmackDown
- Akira Tozawa to Raw
- King Baron Corbin to SmackDown
- Shelton Benjamin to Raw
Buddy Murphy vs. Cedric Alexander
This match began with a test of strength, both Buddy Murphy and Cedric Alexander struggling to gain dominance, as they have faced each other many times before.
Cedric Alexander took a break from the action to offer a handshake to Buddy, who flicked his hair in Cedric’s face. After this interaction, Buddy Murphy took control, wearing Cedric down in the ring before throwing him to ringside.
Back from commercial, Cedric caught Buddy with a couple of kicks to the side of the head, but Buddy Murphy came back with a vicious knee strike, again flinging Cedric from the apron, diving on top of him to the floor.
Cedric Alexander fought to stay in the match once he was back in the ring, connecting with an elbow and a dive of his own, sending Murphy soaring into the barricade. Alexander prepared for the lumbar check, but Murphy managed to roll out of it.
The two climbed the ropes, Murphy dropping down for a superkick to Cedric before powerbombing him to the mat. Cedric Alexander kicked out of the pin, but Buddy Murphy was quick to respond, hitting a Murphy’s Law and taking the win.
Winner: Buddy Murphy
Sixth-Round Draft Picks
The sixth, and final, round draft picks were as follows:
- Rey Mysterio to Raw
- Chad Gable to SmackDown
- Titus O’Neil to Raw
- Elias to SmackDown
- Liv Morgan to Raw
The Kabuki Warriors vs. Natalya and Lacey Evans
When Natalya found herself in need of a partner to face Asuka and Kairi Sane of the Kabuki Warriors, she knew that she needed someone with a similar approach as her, someone who was aggressive and willing to do whatever it takes. Making the obvious choice Lacey Evans.
But Lacey came into the match with too much confidence, opening the door for Kairi and Asuka to lay into her from the start. Lacey eventually got some offense in when she kicked Kairi out of the air, but The Kabuki Warriors were soon back on top.
Lacey Evans fired off a few strikes before tagging Natalya into the match, who leveled Asuka, looking for the sharpshooter, but Asuka transitioned into an ankle lock. Natalya broke free and the two struggled for a moment before Natalya locked in the sharpshooter. Asuka may have been close to tapping out, but Kairi Sane broke the submission before she could.
Going into commercial, Asuka threw Natalya to the ground with a hip attack and when they came back, Asuka had Natalya deep in an armbar. With a second and then a third armbar, is looked like Natalya might pass out, but when Asuka let her up to throw some strikes, Natalya hit her in the face.
Asuka and Kairi’s confidence continued to grow until they took their advantage for granted, allowing Natalya to escape from Kairi Sane and tag Lacey Evans into the match.
Lacey Evans wasted no time beating down both Kairi and Asuka and dodged an Insane Elbow attempt from Kairi Sane, but Asuka had gotten the blind tag. Asuka rolled Lacey Evans up and won the match for her team.
Winner: Asuka and Kairi Sane
Seth Rollins Finds the Fun House
Bray Wyatt opened the Fun House with a reminder that he loved Seth Rollins, he thought Seth was brave and smart, it’s just that The Fiend never forgets. And The Fiend believes Seth Rollins deserves to be punished.
Rambling Rabbit sprung into the frame, warning Bray that Seth Rollins was on his way to the Fun House and he looked really mad. Bray told him not to worry, because The Fiend was always there to protect them.
But not this time. Seth Rollins arrived at the Fun House, pummeling Bray Wyatt mercilessly while Bray pleaded with him, genuinely confused as to why Seth would want to hurt him. Rollins gave no answer, but continued to beat down Wyatt before ruining the wall of friendship and burning down the Fun House.
If The Fiend was angry before, we have to imagine that he will now be out for blood.
