Here is your post-Raw fight size update for Monday, October 18, 2021.
- Charlotte Flair opened the program by bemoaning the fact that she has to defend her title and that there was no goodbye ceremony planned for her (this being her last night on Raw, and all). She was then interrupted by Bianca Belair, who would be challenging her later in the night for the Raw Women's Championship. Bianca talked about becoming a double-champ after she wins tonight and at Crown Jewel. Charlotte took offence with being interrupted and attacked Belair, but it was The EST of WWE who stood tall to end the segment.
- Xavier Woods defeated Jinder Mahal to advance to the finals of the King of the Ring tournament. He will face Finn Balor in the finals on October 21 at Crown Jewel.
- After a backstage encounter earlier in the day, Austin Theory was set to face R-Truth, but he brought out Jeff Hardy to take his place. Theory embarrassed Hardy two weeks ago by attacking him and taking a selfie, beat him last week, and pinned him again tonight. Jeff got revenge after the bell, though, hitting a Twist of Fate and snapping a selfie of his own to even the score.
- In their third consecutive week teaming together, Big E and Drew McIntyre were able to coexist, defeating The Dirty Dawgs in the process. E and Drew will face off at Crown Jewel with the WWE Championship on the line.
- After defeating Cedric Alexander, Mansoor was confronted by Ali, who asked if he learned nothing from him. Mansoor got fired up, quickly, yelling at Ali and vowing to expose him as a cowardly, pathetic excuse for a man when they do battle at Crown Jewel.
"This Thursday, I prove to the entire world that you are nothing more than a pathetic, cowardly sorry excuse for a man!"@KSAMANNY is all fired up going into #WWECrownJewel this Thursday against the ruthless @AliWWE!#WWERaw pic.twitter.com/BmZj8fnWHt— WWE (@WWE) October 19, 2021
- Goldberg and Bobby Lashley sat down in what was billed as a No Holds Barred interview ahead of their No Holds Barred match at Crown Jewel.
- RK-Bro faced The Street Profits, but the match ended in a disqualification after Omos got involved and chokelsammed Riddle on the ring apron.
- Doudrop defeated Shayna Baszler to advance to the finals of the Queen's Crown tournament. She will face Zelina Vega at Crown Jewel to determine who the inaugural winner will be.
- After defeating Mace, Finn Balor confronted his Crown Jewel opponent, Xavier Woods, who had been watching from the top of the ramp. Kofi Kingston had to come out and separate the two King of the Ring finalists.
- John Morrison took some time out of his day to explain 'chi' to the Viking Raiders.
- An incredible main event for the Raw Women's Championship ended in disqualification after Charlotte Flair struck Bianca Belair with a steel chair. Bianca will have another opportunity to capture gold this Thursday when she takes on Backy Lynch and Sasha Banks in a triple threat match for the SmackDown Women's Championship at Crown Jewel.
