Opening segment

  • Shawn Michaels, Ric Flair, Big Show and Christian are in the ring. They tell Drew that it was all Ric's idea to interfere in the match.
  • Drew breathing HEAVY. Get those nasal passages cleared, my dude.
  • Orton says he isn't done with Drew until he says, and he'll get a title match because he's Randy Orton.
  • Oh...................they're doing this again, huh?
  • Randy Orton pretends to leave. He ain't leaving.
  • Drew McIntyre issues an open challenge to anyone he hasn't faced for the WWE Championship.
  • Drew clearly can't judge the piped in audio. He was talking very quietly over it.

WWE Raw Women's Title Match
Asuka (c) defeated Zelina to retain the title
4.5/10

  • A rematch. Goody.
  • Zelina makes a short joke to Kayla Braxton, who is taller than her.
  • Zelina works over most of this match. Just what we need! An 0-2 title challenger who has wrestled eight times this year beating down the champ!
  • Asuka suplexes out of a wristlock.
  • Zelina escapes an Asuka Lock to the ropes.
  • Because Asuka is a babyface, she has to be dumb and get distracted and hit with a Backstabber.
  • Knees up on a moonsault, then Zelina taps to the Asuka lock.
  • I'm going to start deducting for pointless rematches.
  • Andrade scolds Zelina after the match and she's nothing without him.

Keith Lee defeated Andrade
5/10

  • Andrade came and did the 2019 Summerslam media junket completely unadvertised. He told me at the time that he wanted to do it to help work on his English. He probably did three dozen interviews there on something he wasn't even scheduled for.
  • Keith Lee comes out.
  • Is Undertaker going to have the Diesel leapfrog talk with Keith!?
  • Andrade gets double knees, but that's about it.
  • Spirit Bomb and a pin.
  • Welp. Andrade isn't in a good way.

Other stuff

  • Lashley bullies a catering plate out of a guy.

WWE 24/7 Championship Stuff
5/10

  • R-Truth is playing chess, and gets a letter from Tozawa. It says he was eaten by a shark, and Kung Fu Naki was his sensei.
  • Drew Gulak is on Smackdown. He pins Tozawa for the title.
  • R-Truth wins is back and they give chase.
  • Why is Gulak on this show?
  • They have a triple threat match.
  • Tozawa and Gulak have a double submission.
  • Gulak has the Gulock on Truth but Tozawa does a senton.
  • Truth wins with a front suplex and a hilarious Attitude Adjustment.

King's Court

  • Seth Rollins plays BUDDY to Murphy, then steals his phone.
  • King's Court with someone's grandma's couch. Or just Lawler's
  • Mysterio says that Dominik and Aliyah are his kids. Dominik will
  • Aliyah says she doesn't know much about Murphy, but Rollins is a fraud.
  • Rollins pops up and shows Aliyah and Murphy's DMs of them chatting.
  • Rey is mad and Aliyah walks off.
  • Murphy is upset at Rollins.
  • Dominik attacks Murphy as he is going at Rollins.

Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke defeated Lana & Natalya
5/10

  • Natalya and Lana want the tag titles because they're celebrities.
  • Adam Pearce instead brings out Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke.
  • Dana Brooke is moved to Raw a week and a half prior to the WWE draft. It doesn't make sense and I don't know that I can possibly give it the energy because I doubt it will be explained further.
  • Dana Brooke looks really good in this match.
  • I don't know what that move was supposed to be but I don't think I need to see it again. That was scary. I'm glad Lana was okay.
  • Mandy wins with a pump kick.
  • This has been the issue with drafts and shakeups WWE has done since late 2018. People just swap or show up in the weeks surrounding the drafts. They brought up a bunch of NXT talent and had them float around for months. Then the wild card. Then the brand to brand. Make it matter
  • They'd done much better in previous months, then just out of nowhere, nothing. Gulak is on Smackdown. Braun is on Smackdown. Who did they trade for Dana and Mandy? Why so close to the draft?
  • You are promoting a draft for next week, and then undermining it. Why should anyone watch if you're telling them it doesn't matter? Making sense should be the minimum.

Kevin Owens defeated Aleister Black via DQ
5.75/10

  • Aleister Black is mad that Owens didn't help him this summer.
  • Aleister has new gear and music. His old theme was legendary territory.
  • They go right at it.
  • After a commercial, Black does a great PK to Owens
  • Both of these guys are so great.
  • There's incidental contact and Black gets DQ'd.
  • Kevin Owens and Aleister Black competed for the third time, including Raw Underground. Black hasn't won any of them.

Buddy Murphy defeated Dominik Mysterio
5.5/10

  • This is the fifth time Dominik has wrestled Murphy since August 28.
  • They're throwing each other into aprons and over tables.
  • Dominik hits his tornado DDT, but finds a kendo stick.
  • Aliyah comes out to plead with Dominik.
  • The ref was so loud, Murphy thought the three count was over before it really was.
  • Dominik hits Murphy with a cane, but Aliyah is in his face.
  • Dominik wants to be the chief, but Aliyah is the chief. She slaps him.
