The September 18 episode of Monday night Raw kicked off with Cody Rhodes standing in the middle of the ring to talk about Jey Uso
, a conversation which was interrupted by Dominik Mysterio
in the previous week’s episode. As soon as Cody began his conversation, in came Dominik Mysterio and was soon followed by Damian Priest and Finn Balor.
Cody Rhodes vs Dominik Mysterio
Dominik Mysterio stood no chance as the two went up against each other for the first time since Money in the Bank. Rhodes shortly hit the Cody Cutter and followed with the Cross Rhodes for the win. The Judgement Day trio were about to gang up on Cody before Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens
entered, making The Judgement Day retreat.
Ivar looked like the clear favourite from the beginning as he dished out punishment to The New Day member. He even went to the top rope and hit a moon sault. Kofi showed amazing resilience as he hit the Trouble In Paradise for the win.
interrupted Nakamura’s entrance but was stopped by the security and Adam Pearce due to his fitness issues. Ricochet seemed to be taking control of the match before Nakamura tried to attack Ricochet with a steel chair. Ricochet dodged the attack but used the steel chair on Nakamura and got himself disqualified. In an argument with the ref, Shinsuke attacked Ricochet’s ankle and proceeded to hurt it. Seth Rollins attacked Nakamura from behind but hurt his back in the altercation.
Nia Jax interrupted the fight as she returned last week and hit The Annihilator on Rhea Ripley. The same agenda was on her mind tonigh, to let everyone know she is to be feared as she hit The Annihilator on Shayna Baszler.
Chad Gable vs Bronson Reed
The two aspirants for a shot at the Intercontinental championship squared up and it seems Chad Gable’s recent uphill heel is coming to an end as Bronson Reed won the fight after dominating Gable.
NXT Women’s Championship Match
Becky Lynch issued an open challenge on Raw and Natalaya kindly obliged. The Man faced no difficulty as she ran through her long time friend and rolled her up for the win.
Tomasso Ciampa vs Giovanni Vinci
Ciampa has made it his mission to face Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship. He believes the only way to do that was by defeating The Imperium. He got off to a great start as he defeated Vinci despite a distraction by Ludwig Kaiser.
Jey Uso vs Drew McIntyre
Drew McIntyre has not forgotten how The Bloodline cost him his WWE Championship and he wanted to make sure Jey remembered it to. McIntyre was about to hit the Claymore when Damian Pries and The Judgement Day caused a distraction which resulted in Jey hitting Drew with the superkick. Uso then made his decision about joining The Judgement Day clear as he hit a superkick on all three members of the group. McIntyre took advantage of this as he hit Jey with The Claymore for the win.
After the match, Finn Balor, Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio ganged upon Jey Uso and it seemed Jey will face their punishment until Cody Rhodes came to the rescue making The Judgement Day run scared.
