Here is your post-WWE Raw fight size update for Monday, October 11, 2021.
- Drew McIntyre opened Raw talking about how his WWE Championship match at Crown Jewel is his last chance to capture the belt before moving to SmackDown. He told Big E, who joined him in the ring, that he never got to hold the title with crowds in attendance and is still chasing that experience.
The Usos came out and said that no matter who wins, they'll have to deal with Roman Reigns at Survivor Series. They then challenged E and Drew to a match later in the night before hitting them both with superkicks.
- The final first-round matches in the King of the Ring and Queen's Crown tournaments took place on Raw. For the men, Xavier Woods defeated Ricochet, while Jinder Mahal topped Kofi Kingston. They will face off next week in a semi-finals match.
For the women, Shayna Baszler and Doudrop advanced to the semi-finals, picking up wins over Dana Brooke and Natalya, respectively. They will also face off next Monday for a spot in the finals at Crown Jewel on October 21.
- Mustafa Ali and Mansoor lost to Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin on Raw. After the bell, Ali, clearly frustrated with having suffered another loss, shoved his partner to the ground and walked to the back alone. Later in the night, he attacked Mansoor, calling him a loser and worthless, seemingly ending their brief stint together as a tag team.
- After getting absolutely manhandled by Omos, Riddle was saved by Randy Orton, who came out and hit AJ Styles with an RKO. He pulled his partner to safety and walked out with their tag titles held high. They are set to defend the belts at Crown Jewel against Styles and Omos.
- The Miz is channelling the spirit of Robin Williams as he dresses like Genie for tonight's episode of Dancing with the Stars.

- Bobby Lashley came and out addressed Goldberg ahead of their No Holds Barred match at Crown Jewel. He took exception with Goldberg saying he would kill him, calling it unbefitting of a WWE Hall of Famer and supposed father.
- After attacking Jeff Hardy last week, Austin Theory went one-on-one with Hardy on Raw. Hardy looked in control after hitting a Twist of Fate on Theory but then missed on a Swanton Bomb. Theory capitalized by rolling up Hardy and holding the tights to secure the victory.
- Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks started fighting before their tag match even got underway, forcing WWE Officials to come out and restart the match. Things wouldn't be much better after the restart because, even though they were able to coexist for a few minutes, Sasha would eventually hit Bianca with a backstabber. She and Lynch would eventually get counted out, causing the match to end in a no contest. Becky would be the last woman standing, though, after she hit Sasha with a kick and Manhandle Slam to end the segment.
- In the main event of the night, Drew McIntyre and Big E were unable to coexist, despite having made a pact to do so earlier in the show. They would cooperate momentarily after the bell rang to dispose of The Usos, but as soon as they were back in the ring they started throwing punches. Big E almost landed the Big Ending, but Drew was able to slip away and deliver the Claymore to the WWE Champion.
