Bengaluru, Nov 1: WWE Raw was hosted by the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut, last night. As a tradition of 31st October, it was a special Halloween edition and the returning Goldberg created havoc inside the ring.
The Night kicked off with Goldberg’s music as he entered the ring in a standing ovation and “Goldberg! Goldberg!” chant filling in the arena.
We expected some otherwise after the negative reaction was showered by the crowd from last week. He went to express his gratitude but interfered by Paul Heyman, the loudmouth advocate of Brock Lesnar.
He warned Goldberg that Lesnar will make him victimized at Survivor Series main event.
After a string of insults, Goldberg got fired up and cornered Heyman. Rusev’s music hit and he made it to the ring to confront him. Rusev said that Goldberg has grown old and he can not beat Lesnar. Goldberg replied with a devastating Jackhammer. He turned back and hit Heyman with a spear to the much delight of the crowd.
The team for the Survivor Series was made by Mick Foley. Jericho and Owens were addressed as the top guy from Raw and hence they were added to the team first with Owens as the captain. Roman Reigns was the third member to join the red bandwagon. That set up a match between Reigns & Owens at the main event of Raw.
After a terrific encounter, Reigns was about to win with his pendant spear but Owens attacked him to make it a disqualification. Rollins ran down to the ring to make the save for Reigns. Both of them shoved down Jeri-KO from the ring to close Raw.
In other segments, Braun Strowman became the fourth member for team Raw by virtue of winning the battle royal. Charlotte was chosen the captain to lead the Women’s team from Raw. She mentioned Bayley as the weak link from her team. Later, Nia Jax defeated Bayley in a singles contest.
Sheamus & Cesaro picked up a win in a tag team contest. Also, Bryan Kendrick retained his Cruiserweight title against TJ Perkins in a rematch from Hell in a Cell via disqualification.
