What happened at WWE Monday Night Raw?

Monday Night Raw is slowly shifting towards changing the storylines. This week’s episode showed the possibility of a storyline between The Miz and Drew McIntyre.

The Miz tried to challenge Randy Orton for the WWE Championship, which McIntyre did not allow. He challenged McIntyre next for two-to-one fight as a token of vengeance. The former WWE Champion won the fight.

This was a predictable match, but the overall lead to it was decent.

WWE Raw featured a segment with Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss in The Firefly House. The ending left almost everyone confused after Bliss pulled off a vague and unusual move.

Anyone who is interested in this storyline might tune in the coming week to understand the situation.

Apart from this, Braun Strowman fought Keith Lee and Sheamus to determine if he is the right fit for Survivor series as a part of WWE Raw team. The Mountain Among Men beat the two Superstars and secured a spot in the team.

This was a match which was worth the watch. They executed some moves to absolute perfection. There was a point when AJ Styles tried to get everyone together, but the union ended in a fight. This bit was humorous but portrayed a team that could not function together.
