The 10/29/18 edition of WWE Raw, out of the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, 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 #1327 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

The Monster vs. The Beast


Following a re-cap of Roman Reigns’ emotional announcement last week, Baron Corbin was shown in the ring with the Universal Championship over his shoulder. He said that, although he was emotional about Reigns’ diagnosis, Reigns did make his job more difficult. In the middle of this less than heartfelt speech, Brock Lesnar’s music hit.

Heyman immediately began his usual pronouncements – Brock Lesnar was undoubtedly going to be the Universal Champion after F5-ing Braun Strowman into oblivion this Friday. Strowman was unsurprisingly upset at this proclamation and came to the ring to stand toe to toe with Lesnar. He said that he will be the one to walk away with the championship, then tossed Baron Corbin around the ring to prove he would destroy anyone who stood in his way.

In response, Brock Lesnar F5’d Braun Strowman, holding up the title with a smile before walking back up the ramp with his advocate.


Finn Bálor vs. Bobby Lashley


Continuing their recent dispute with Finn Bálor, Bobby Lashley and his manager, Lio Rush, came out ready to bring down the leader of the Bálor Club. Lio Rush is apparently refusing to turn the Lashley cheers down a notch, and again gave a constant stream of chants throughout the entire match.

Bálor was about to hit the Coup de Grâce and most likely get the win when Lio Rush intervened, causing a disqualification. With Rush egging him on, Lashley continued to beat down/humiliate Bálor post-match. Backstage, Baron Corbin requested a meeting with Lashley and Rush, giving Lashley John Cena’s place in the world cup tournament as a reward for taking Bálor down a peg.

Winner: Finn Bálor (via disqualification)


Lita, Trish Stratus, Natalya, Sasha Banks, and Bayley
vs. The Riott Squad, Alicia Fox, and Mickie James


Although it felt a little strange to be watching a Survivor Series-style match 3 weeks before Survivor Series, with the lineup of women included in this match, we didn’t have to wonder if it would be entertaining. These ladies did not disappoint, keeping the crowd at the edge of their seats the entire time. After a fun 10-woman bout, Natalya took the victory for her team by tapping out Alicia Fox with a sharpshooter.

Winner: Lita, Trish Stratus, Natalya, Sasha Banks, and Bayley


Nia Jax // Ember Moon Interview


In a duel interview backstage regarding the Evolution battle royal, Nia Jax and Ember Moon fought for the spotlight. Nia said that while she could admit that Ember was a great competitor, she wasn’t able to overcome the Irresistible Force – and would lose again tonight. Things got a little shady, but both ladies were able to retain their composure.


Elias Blesses Charlotte


Elias arrived in Charlotte early to meet up with Ric Flair (at Flair’s request, of course), so the audience was even luckier than usual to get an appearance from The Drifter. Instead of a concert, however, he went to find Baron Corbin to rub the attack from last week in the GM’s face.

Standing outside Corbin’s office door, Elias performed a private concert written just for him. That is until Jinder Mahal ambushed him, throwing Elias to the ground. Baron Corbin then announced that the two would be going one-on-one right then.


Elias vs. Jinder Mahal


Resuming the assault started backstage, Jinder Mahal kept Elias down for much of the bout. Elias wasn’t about to be beaten in the middle of proving a point to Baron Corbin and came back for a last-minute victory.

Winner: Elias


The Ascension vs. Bobby Roode and Chad Gable vs. AoP


Bobby Roode and Chad Gable won the match in a few short minutes but had even less time to celebrate, as Akam and Rezar of AoP decimated them seconds after the bell, leaving Roode and Gable lying in the ring as they stood tall instead.

Winner: Bobby Roode and Chad Gable


Seth Rollins Confronts Dean Ambrose


Seth Rollins came to the ring, microphone in hand, and thanked the crowd for the outpouring of love Roman Reigns has received since his announcement. He then had to address the elephant in the room – Dean Ambrose turning on him after they won the tag titles together last week. Rollins asked that his (possibly former) best friend come down to discuss why he decided to turn his back on his brother.

With a disdainful look in his eye, Dean Ambrose appeared in the audience but didn’t say a word. Rollins did his best to force Ambrose to speak but to no avail. In a fit of frustration, Rollins started to make his way toward Ambrose but decided against it when Ambrose turned his back and disappeared into the crowd.


Nia Jax vs. Ember Moon


The pressure was on for Nia Jax, as she promised to take Ember down earlier in the evening. Unfortunately for Jax, Ember Moon also had something to prove and quickly made it clear she wouldn’t be defeated easily. Moon may have pulled off the upset, but Tamina caused a distraction, allowing Jax to emerge victorious.

Winner: Nia Jax


Lucha House Party vs. The Revival


In their Raw debut, Lucha House Party took on Dawson and Dash, The Revival. Kalisto and Lince Dorado did the dirty work while Gran Metalik cheered them on with his noisemaker and LHP mascot, Penelope the piñata, from ringside.

This was short, but both teams packed a ton of fun into a few minutes. In the end, Metalik was able to distract Scott Dawson long enough for Kalisto to hit a Salida del Sol and win the match.

Winner: Lucha House Party


Dolph Ziggler vs. Apollo Crews


Before anything else, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre happily took credit for breaking up The Shield. Then Ziggler got into the world cup tournament, first talking about Kurt Angle in a positive light, then gave him some insight into what is going to happen when they get in the ring. Ziggler had zero doubt in his ability to defeat Angle, as he is the best in the world.

Once the match was underway, Apollo Crews gave “the best in the world” a run for his money, keeping pace with him until the very end. It may not have been the easy win he anticipated, but Dolph Ziggler did come out on top.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler


DX Meets The Brothers of Destruction


Kane and Undertaker came to the ring, claiming that they would send DX straight to hell in slow, agonizing fashion in their first, and last, meeting. The DX music hit, but only Triple H came to the stage. While he caused a distraction, Shawn Michaels snuck up on The Brothers of Destruction, attacking them from behind. Time will tell if this ambush was a grave mistake.
