Also, it’s been 20 years for Randy Orton and it was a celebration night for the “Legend Killer”. Also, Lashley and Omos had an interesting arm-wrestling match. Finn Balor went on against Damien Preist. Also, to mention there were multiple returns this week on RAW as Mustafa Ali came back on RAW after last Crown Jewel.

Arm wrestling : Omos vs. Bobby Lashley

Following that, Omos and Lashley competed in an arm-wrestling bout to discover which behemoth has greater raw strength.  Lashley triumphed after a protracted tussle in which both men came dangerously close to defeating the other. Later, Omos violently assaulted Lashley.

Reggie and Dana Brooke vs. Tamina and Akira Tozawa

In a mixed tag team battle, Akira Tozawa and Tamina faced Reggie and Dana Brooke. Tozawa and Tamina eventually won, and we saw a couple individuals attempt to pin Dana for the 24/7 championship. She was able to flee without getting pinned.

Winner: Tamina and Akira Tozawa

Later, Becky Lynch returned and said how she felt incomplete without her title and this could be a chance for her to get her legendary comeback one more time. As, she was saying no-one could stop her now, there was a surprise return as Asuka’s music hit and she is once again back on WWE standing straight to Big Time Becks. Becky tried to attack but it was all futile against Asuka and she made Lynch run from the ring.

Finn Balor vs. Damian Priest

Finn Balor had to suffer a huge loss on WWE RAW due to a distraction by Edge against Damian Priest as Priest beat Finn Balor in their singles bout.

Also, this bout is far from over as Balor would be frustrated and would come back with some retaliation.

Winner: Damian Priest

The Miz vs. Mustafa Ali

The Miz’s special guest this week on WWE RAW is the new United States champion. As The Miz was giving some advice to the new champ, Mustafa Ali returned and went straight for the champ but Theory texted Mr. McMahon and booked a match for Ali against Miz.

They began with simple wristlocks and counters, but The Miz immediately escalated the battle into a more violent brawl with a forearm to the head. While Ali made several nice shots, The Miz dominated the first few minutes with his aggressive offensive. Ali was victorious thanks to an inventive pinning sequence to counter a Figure-Four.

Winner: Mustafa Ali

Cody Rhodes, Ezekiel and RK-Bro vs. Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and The Usos

When all eight guys entered the ring, a massive brawl erupted before the referee could even sound the bell. The American Nightmare bore the brunt of the opposition team’s onslaught. They kept him enclosed and tagged in and out to keep everyone fresh while isolating Rhodes. After a hot tag, Zeke enjoyed a brief burst of attack, but Rollins regained control with an inverted superplex on Riddle. When The Viper eventually tagged in, he went for everyone on the other squad. The Legend Killer scored the pin for his squad after a series of RKOs from various angles.

Winner: Cody Rhodes, Ezekiel and RK-Bro
