NXT comes to WWE Raw.
WWE Raw kicked off with a bang as Triple H announced that top NXT stars Ricochet, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and Aleister Black would compete on tonight's episode. Triple H didn't offer further details at the time, but all four men made their Raw debuts at various points throughout the three-hour program. By the sound of things, all four will remain part of the main roster moving forward.

Ricochet made his debut by saving Finn Balor from a 2-on-1 attack at the hands of Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush, leading to a tag team match between the four men.
Lashley and Rush were able to isolate the new Intercontinental Champion for the majority of the tag team contest, but once Ricochet got the hot tag, he displayed the ariel arsenal fans have fallen in love with.
The celebration for the new Raw Tag Team Champions lasted only a week as The Revival lost to old rivals DIY in tag team action.

As for Aleister Black, he made his debut by becoming the latest man to interrupt, and then defeat, Elias.
