WWE Raw Review 10/7/23

Tonight's episode of Raw comes to us live from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York.

We open the show with a video package of what happened last week with Judgement Day.

In Ring Segment:

Finn Balor is in the ring, without the rest of Judgement Day. He is loudly booed by the crowd. He says that he isn’t happy about the way things went down at Money in the Bank. He says that the issues between him and Seth Rollins haven’t been resolved because of Damian Priest.

Judgement Day’s music hits, and out comes Rhea Ripley and Domink Mysterio. Rhea asks what is going on. She knows that Finn has unfinished business he wants to discuss, but to not do it out in the ring. She says that they can go to the back to talk about it. Finn says that he has issues with Damian, not them. He says that Damian cost him the World Heavyweight Championship at Money in the Bank. Rhea gets into the ring and pushes Finn’s microphone down. She tells Finn to calm down. Dominik remains at ringside to watch this all unfold. Finn then speaks to Rhea, before dropping his microphone and leaving the ring. He looks at Dominik and then walks away.

Rhea remains in the ring and tells the crowd what they just saw was Judgement Day business. All the crowd needs to know is that Judgement Day still runs Monday Night Raw. She then challenges anyone to come to the ring and question it. She says that she is still the most dominant female in the WWE. Rhea says that tonight, her “Latino Heat” will finish his business when he puts down Seth Rollins. Dominik attempts to speak, but as usual, he is booed immensely. Dominik angrily paces the ring because of this.

Seth Rollins’ music hits, he comes out onto the stage and he is eating buffalo wings. Dominik shouts for Seth’s music to be cut. Seth says that no one is here to listen to Dominik run his mouth. He says that people are here to party, eat buffalo wings and watch Judgement Day implode right before our eyes. Dominik says that the only thing that will implode is Seth’s head when he beats him tonight. The crowd continues to boo Dominik. Seth cackles saying that Dominik will beat him. Rhea is seen to be absolutely seething. Seth says he has some bad news for Mami, he will be the only one beating “little Dom-Dom’s ass”. Seth then dances off, eating his buffalo wings.

Backstage Segment:

Damian Priest is backstage. Rhea and Dominik walk up to him. Damian says that went just as he thought it would. Rhea says that it didn't go the way she planned it, but they need to grow up, act like men and squash this. Damian says that he has already spoken to Finn, but Finn chose not to listen. But, for Rhea, he will speak to Finn again. Rhea says good and walks off with Dominik.

Match 1: Drew McIntyre & Matt Riddle vs Imperium (Ludwig Kaiser & Giovanni Vinci) w/Gunther

Matt Riddle starts against Ludwig Kaiser. They lock up, and Riddle applies a waistlock before taking Kaiser down. Riddle goes for an armbar, but Kaiser fights up and backs Riddle to the corner. Kaiser punches Riddle in the midsection and hits a headlock takeover. Kaiser cinches in a side headlock, but Riddle fights up. Riddle tries to whip him off, but Kaiser holds onto his head with the headlock. Riddle gets up and twists out before going for a key lock. Kaiser quickly backs him to the corner and punches him in the face. Riddle responds with a pair of deadlift gutwrench suplexes. Riddle wrenches the arm and tags in Drew.

Drew comes into the ring and Giovanni Vinci attacks him from behind, but McIntyre quickly takes Vinci down with a clothesline. Drew chops him down and tags Riddle in. Drew helps Riddle hit a standing Floating Bro for a one-count. Vinci quickly takes Riddle down with a swinging back suplex. Vinci chokes Riddle on the middle rope until the referee backs him up. Kaiser tags in and taunts Drew. Riddle catches Kaiser with an armbar while hanging over the top rope. Vinci quickly crushes Riddle with a dropkick. Kaiser then hits a wild baseball slide on Riddle that sends him off the apron as we go to the break.

We come back from the break to see Vinci beating Riddle down with short-arm clotheslines. Riddle counters one into a crucifix pin for a two-count. Vinci immediately boots him down and tags Kaiser in. Kaiser powers Riddle into a pin for a two-count. Kaiser cinches in a chin lock on the mat. Riddle fights up and exchanges blows with Kaiser in the ring. Kaiser absorbs a kick and uppercuts Riddle before hitting a flatliner. Kaiser then turns around and boots McIntyre in the head. Riddle counters a discus lariat with an overhead kick.

Drew gets on the apron, but Kaiser stops Riddle from making a tag and instead tags in Vinci. Vinci hits a vertical suplex for a near fall. Vinci sets up for an Imperium Bomb, but Riddle hits a back body drop and knees Kaiser in the face coming off the middle rope.

Drew tags in and clotheslines both Kaiser and Vinci down. Drew then sends Vinci into the ropes and hits an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Drew grabs Vinci and gives him a second one. Drew hits Kaiser with a neckbreaker, followed by Vinci. Drew looks at Gunther and gives Vinci a powerbomb. Drew walks toward Gunther and looks him right in the eye. Drew then goes to the corner and does a countdown, but Kaiser interferes. Drew throws him away. The referee checks on Kaiser, so Gunther uses the distraction to pull Drew out of the ring. Riddle quickly stuns Gunther with a diving knee to the head off the steel steps. Drew gets in the ring and hits Vinci with a Claymore Kick. Riddle locks Kaiser in an ankle lock as Drew pins Vinci.

A good match. A nice easy way to get Drew back into things with a tag match. It’s good to see Riddle getting a win as well. This is definitely leading up to Gunther vs Drew for the Intercontinental Championship. Obviously having Kaiser and Vinci in the match taking the loss works a lot better than having Gunther in there. Grade C

After the match, Gunther is shouting at Vinci and he walks off, leaving Vinci looking shocked. Kaiser looks at Vinci, but then follows Gunther.

Backstage Segment:

We see Judgement Day backstage. Finn says that he would be the World Heavyweight Champion if it wasn’t for Damian. Rhea tells them to stop acting like children and to speak one at a time with Damian going first. Damian says that it was never his intention to cost Finn the match at Money in the Bank, he wanted Finn to win the match and the championship. He says that he would never have cashed in on Finn. He says they can go back to handling their business or… Finn says that they can have a fresh start under one condition. Finn has issues with Seth Rollins, and he wants to deal with him first. Damian says that he has no problems with that. Damian says he knows that Finn can beat Seth. Either way, it is covered. Damian then holds up the MitB Briefcase and walks off with Rhea and Dominik.

Backstage Interview:

Jackie Redmond is backstage with Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. She says that they have successfully defended the titles on numerous occasions since WrestleMania. She asks what is next for them. Sami says that there will be more of the same. They will keep on winning. They beat Pretty Deadly and they were able to overcome Imperium. He says it doesn’t matter who it is, they will take them out. They are interrupted by Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio. Kevin Owens says that nobody called them, they need to follow the rules. Rhea says that they never mentioned Judgement Day. She says that any combination of Judgement Day could beat them for the titles. Judgement Day is here to take all the titles. Rhea says that tonight her “Dom-Dom” is going to smash Seth Rollins’ head in. She says that in prison, he worked on his cardio and he never gets tired, they then walk away.

Match 2: Dominik Mysterio w/Rhea Ripley vs Seth Rollins

As Seth Rollins makes his entrance, Rhea Ripley distracts him. Dominik Mysterio then attacks him from behind and punches away at him. Seth fights back, and they brawl at ringside. Seth knocks Dominik into the crowd and chases him. Dominik runs away and gets back to ringside. Damian Priest and Finn Bálor then attack Rollins from behind. Dominik punches Seth at ringside.

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn run down to make the save. They attack Finn and Damian in the ring. Seth runs in with a steel chair and chases Finn and Damian away. Dominik gets hit in the spine with the chair. Seth stands tall in the ring with Owens and Sami as the crowd sings Seth’s theme song.

A non-match. I’m assuming that this will set up a match for later tonight or next week.

Backstage Segment:

We see Logan Paul limping backstage.

In Ring Segment:

Ricochet makes his way to the ring. He says everybody knows why he’s here but before he gets into it, he wants to say something to the crowd from the heart. Ricochet says if you know him, from the moment he steps through the curtain, every risk he takes is for the people. He wants them to remember him as the highlight of their nights. Tonight, he’s here for one individual person: Logan Paul. The crowd loudly boos at the mention of Logan Paul’s name. Ricochet says he feels the same way as the crowd. Ricochet knows Logan Paul is here. Ricochet says that Logan has accomplished a lot in his short time in the WWE. They’ve crossed paths on multiple occasions. One of those occasions was Logan jumping him after Money in the Bank because “little Logan” didn’t get his way. Ricochet is cool with that, but he’s not cool with Logan going on his podcast about Ricochet being unprofessional when he admitted he didn’t know what he was doing in the first place. They do it big here, they don’t do it on social media. If Paul has something to say to him, he can say it to him face-to-face.

Logan Paul makes his way to the ring to loud boos from the crowd. Logan laughs into the microphone as he walks to the ring. Logan says Ricochet looks like a little boy. Logan says he wants to make this quick because he doesn’t want to be in this crap city any longer than he has to be. Ricochet is a human highlight reel and one of the most spectacular superstars he’s ever seen. When they get in the ring, it’s fireworks, but he stands by what he said on his podcast. At Money in the Bank, all the “cronies” cared more about Logan Paul losing than winning. Ricochet blew the match for both of them and that makes Ricochet a reckless amateur. If Ricochet wants to talk unprofessional, Logan can do that.

Ricochet says he was. He’s a man of the people. Ricochet promises that none of the people want Logan near that Money in the Bank briefcase. Ricochet says Logan keeps saying the word “unprofessional.” Ricochet says he wouldn’t be in this ring after 20 years of people telling him he’ll never be anything if he was unprofessional. Ricochet says he was going to do the professional thing and challenge Logan to a match, but now that he’s out here and he sees Logan’s stupid face, all he wants to do is hurt him. Ricochet will do that, but he has some advice for the rookie: “Don’t you ever run your damn mouth about Ricochet again.”

Logan says he’ll never be intimidated by a dude in an extra medium button-up that’s 90% forehead. Ricochet is clever, and Logan respects it. Ricochet wants a match with Logan so he can go viral. Logan doesn’t care about going viral. Logan Paul is a WWE Superstar. Logan has a legendary knockout punch. Ricochet is about replays and clips. This isn’t going to work out between them.

Ricochet is furious and does a somersault flip over the top rope before landing on his feet at ringside. Logan says that was cool for a TikTok, but he’s not here to make moments. Logan is the moment. This isn’t going to work out. Logan turns around but then goes for a sucker punch. Ricochet avoids it and hits Paul with Sliced Bread #2 on the floor. Ricochet shouts at Logan and walks off. Logan smirks at him.

Match 3: Becky Lynch vs Zoey Stark w/Trish Stratus

The women lock up, and Zoey applies a side headlock. Becky whips her off, but Zoey takes her down with a shoulder tackle. Becky hits Zoey with a waistlock takeover. Zoey fights up and wrenches the arm. Becky twists out and hooks a side headlock. Zoey fights out and applies a side headlock. Becky whips her off and drops down, but Zoey cartwheels over her. Becky quickly takes her down, and Zoey is irate. Becky sidesteps her and hits a pair of arm drags. Becky cinches in an armbar and shouts at Stratus. Zoey fights up, but Becky catches her with an inside cradle for a two-count. Zoey takes her down, but Becky bends out a la Trish Stratus. Becky hits the ropes, but Trish trips her. Zoey punches Becky down and charges, but Becky puts her on the apron. Zoey avoids a diving leg drop, but Becky lands on her feet. Zoey then hits Becky with a springboard dropkick that sends Backy flying out of the ring as we go to the break.

We come back from the break to see Zoey roll through a cross-body block and power Becky up. Becky gets out and kicks away at Zoey, knocking her to ringside. Becky hits the ropes and connects with a baseball slide. Becky gets on the apron and hits a diving clothesline to the floor. Becky throws Zoey into the barricade three times before putting her in the ring. Becky gets Zoey in the ring and hits a pumphandle exploder suplex for a two-count.

Becky sets Zoey up near the corner and goes to the top rope. Becky jumps but lands on her feet when Zoey moves. Zoey hits a clothesline, followed by a running knee to the face. Zoey charges, but Becky drops her on the apron. Zoey snaps Becky off the top rope and hits a slingshot twisting senton for a near fall. Zoey goes for Z-360, but Becky gets out. Becky counters with a reverse DDT for a near fall. Becky goes for a Dis-Arm-Her, but Zoey counters with a roll-up for a two-count. Becky goes for it again, but Zoey whips her off and superkicks her down for a near fall. Zoey shouts at Becky to quit and mounts her for some stiff forearms to the face. Zoey lifts her, but Becky slides off and rolls her up. Zoey rolls through and grabs the ropes, but the referee catches her. Becky rolls Zoey up, but Trish Stratus gets on the apron. Zoey goes for Z-360, but Becky counters it and hits Trish with a baseball slide. Zoey then rolls Becky up for the win.

A good match. The ending added fuel to the fire as well. It didn’t make Becky look weak as it was a tainted win for Zoey. This is definitely heading towards a huge match at SummerSlam between Trish and Becky. There may need to be another woman added to this rivalry to keep Zoey at bay. Grade C+

Backstage Segment:

Seth Rollins is backstage with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Seth says that he appreciates Owens and Zayn making the save earlier tonight and he asks them what their plan is. Sami says that they can beat Judgement Day. They are three champions and they are going to beat Judgement Day because they can. Owens says that he has a plan, he wants to punch faces and break noses.

In Ring Segment:

It's time for the Alpha Academy Graduation Ceremony for Maxxine Dupri.

Chad Gable shooshes the crowd and thanks them. Gable says they’re here to honour an achievement, though not his own, because we’d be here all night. Tonight, we’ll be celebrating Alpha Academy’s first female graduate. She put in the hard work and showed off her skill by beating the Viking Raiders with some sick arm drags. It is his honour and pleasure to give an Alpha Academy diploma to Maxxine Dupri.

Maxxine makes her entrance in a pink graduation gown. She thanks Gable. She thought he was an ugly little troll when she first met him, but he’s become a great mentor, teacher, and friend. She beat that witch Valhalla with his training. She also thanks the “beautiful hunk of beef” Otis. Otis is her muse. This wouldn’t be possible if he didn’t catch her eye. They are just getting started.

Gable and Otis put on Alpha Academy jackets. Gable tells Dupri to take off her cap and gown and put on the last jacket she’ll ever need.

The Viking Raiders’ music hits. Erik and Ivar head to the ring. As they do, Valhalla attacks Dupri from behind and steals her Alpha Academy jacket.

Match 4: Shayna Baszler vs Emma

The bell rings, and Shayna attacks Emma with punches and kicks. Shayna whips Emma to the opposite corner and charges, but Emma boots Shayna back. Emma connects with a running dropkick and hits a running cross-body block into the corner. Emma covers her and Shayna kicks out at two. Shayna pushes her off and clotheslines Emma down. Shayna punches away at Emma and bends the arm back before stomping it. Shayna grabs the arm and asks “who wants a souvenir”. Shayna then applies the Kirifuda Clutch for the submission win.

A squash match. Emma managed a small amount of offence but it was pretty obvious from the get go who was winning this one. Grade D

After the match, Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring. Shayna remains in the ring, waiting for her. Ronda punches Shayna in the face which takes Shayna down. The women brawl in the ring before Shayna goes for the Kirifuda Clutch. Onda manages to pull Shayna off and goes for an armbar, but Shayna rolls out. Shayna pulls herself out of the ring and backs away from Ronda.

Backstage Segment:

We see Cody Rhodes walking around backstage.

In Ring Segment:

Cody starts this off with his usual “what do you guys want to talk about”. Cody says there are millions of people sitting at home, but he asks if they can indulge him as he turns his back to look at everyone here tonight. Cody looks to the crowd, and they shower him with praise. A “Cody” chant picks up. Cody says he sees them and hopes they can see him. Sometimes it feels like there’s an invisible wall between him and the crowd, but he doesn’t feel that way. The reason it feels like that and doesn’t feel performative is because what he has been telling them since he returned is real. They’re not just talking about career goals. They’re talking about life goals. Someone asked him in the United Kingdom about his momentum. Cody answered politely and was cagey. Cody cited the fans. Every city is sold out, and every crowd is louder and louder. Every metric you can judge him by, he’s doing ok. Cody thinks his momentum in the ring is shaky because of the mountain that stands in front of him. It’s a mountain he cannot go over, under, or around. You can only go through it. Cody is talking about Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar is not here tonight, and didn’t think Buffalo was worth the trip. Cody was told Lesnar will be here next week. Cody made a discovery about Mr. Lesnar. Everybody has a Brock Lesnar. Fear of heights? Terrible anxiety? Terrible student debt? Brock Lesnar! We all have it. It’s impeding us from the most important step we need to take. His Lesnar is 6’3″, 285 pounds, and a walking billboard for Darwinism and Natural Selection. “Some men see things the way they are and say why. Others dream things and say why not?” Cody dreams about a rubber match against Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.

Nothing would make Cody happier if Lesnar came to the ring, shook his hand, and knew it wasn’t personal. Even if they don’t shake hands, he’s going to finish the chapter that Lesnar started for no damn reason. The reason is simple. Why would anyone want another match against Brock Lesnar? What comes from that fight? What emerges from that cloud of dust is simple. That guy is next in line. That prince doesn’t want to be the prince forever. Cody will be next in line.

Match 5: The Miz vs Tommaso Ciampa - No Disqualification

As Ciampa makes his entrance, he grabs a chair. Miz runs out, and Ciampa attacks him before whipping him into the LED barricade. Ciampa sends him into the LED apron and puts him in the ring. Miz rolls into the ring and picks up the chair. The bell rings to start the match. Ciampa tackles Miz, and they trade punches. Miz rolls out of the ring and attacks Ciampa. Ciampa quickly bounces Miz off the commentary table before throwing him over. Ciampa then chops away at Miz’s chest and sits him down in a chair. Ciampa then knocks Miz over with a running knee to the face.

Ciampa gets Miz in the ring, and a “We want tables” chant picks up. Ciampa positions the chair in the ring and goes for the Fairy Tale Ending. Miz counters and goes for a Skull Crushing Finale on the chair, but Ciampa powers out. Miz quickly boots Ciampa down. Miz takes a moment to recover before choking Ciampa on the top rope. Miz grabs the chair, but Ciampa punches Miz in the midsection. Miz knocks Ciampa back to the corner and hits a corner clothesline. Miz goes to the top rope and leaps, but Ciampa hits Miz in the ribs with the chair. Ciampa puts the chair around Miz’s head and drives him into the ring post as we go to the break.

We come back from the break to hear the crowd going crazy because Ciampa is bringing out a table. Miz hits him with a baseball slide that sends Ciampa over the commentary table and into Kevin Patrick’s lap. Miz puts the table back under the ring. Ciampa quickly attacks Miz and leans the lid of the table onto the table. Ciampa hits Miz with a back suplex on the lid. Ciampa gets Miz on the table. Miz fights back, so Ciampa throws him off the table and into the barricade.

Ciampa goes under the ring and throws a chair and a trash can lid into the ring. Ciampa then gets a table out, to the delight of the crowd. Ciampa puts Miz in the ring. Miz boots Ciampa in the face as he gets in the ring. Miz attacks Ciampa and grabs the trash can lid. Miz goes to the second rope and jumps, but Ciampa hits a flying knee out of midair. Ciampa stomps the trash can into Miz’s midsection before hitting a pair of running trash can lid shots to the head. Ciampa then sets the table up for a big reaction. Ciampa puts Miz on the top rope and sets up for an Air Raid Siren. Ciampa connects with an Air Raid Siren off the second rope and through the table. Ciampa covers, but Bronson Reed pulls Ciampa out of the ring and hits an avalanche on him at ringside. Reed then hits a senton splash on the floor and puts Ciampa back in the ring. Reed goes to the top rope and hits Ciampa with a Tsunami. Miz slowly recovers and slides over to cover Ciampa for the victory. Reed smiles and walks away.

An interesting match. I enjoyed the match overall, but I am very confused about the involvement of Bronson Reed. He has recently been involved in a programme with Ricochet and Shinsuke Nakamura to now all of a sudden being involved with the Miz and Ciampa. It was a solid no DQ match that the crowd seemed very involved in. Grade B-

Backstage Segment:

Liv Morgan and Raquel Rodriguez are backstage. Sonya Deville and Chelsea Green come up to them and ask them why they are going to be at ringside. Liv says that they want to see their competition for next week. Raquel tells them to calm down. Rhea Ripley then walks up to Liv & Raquel and she gets into Raquel’s face. Rhea says that they got into her business for the second time last week and if they do it again, it will be strike three. Chelsea then says “three strikes and you're out, like in basketball”. She then says that they are going to run this division with Rhea. Rhea then asks who said “we”? Sonya and Chelsea quickly leave. Liv says that they aren’t scared of Rhea, and the reason they got involved in her business last week is because Rhea disrespected Natalya. Raquel says that they are going to stop her and they walk away.

Match 6: Sonya Deville & Chelsea Green vs Kayden Carter & Katana Chance

Kayden starts the match against Sonya. Kayden dropkicks Sonya down and tags in Katana. Katana traps Sonya in the corner, and Kayden hits a dropkick.

Katana sits on Kayden’s shoulders and hits a splash, but Sonya breaks up the pin. Sonya kicks Kayden in the head. Katana goes after Chelsea, but Chelsea rolls her up and gets her feet on the ropes, which Sonya holds down, for the win.

A sloppy match, I did not enjoy this one at all. I was expecting better with Kayden and Katana being involved, but was let down. I don’t really know what else to say about this one. Grade D-

Backstage Interview:

Drew McIntyre and Matt Riddle are backstage. Byron Saxton comes up to interview them. Drew says that there have been a lot of factions popping up lately. He says that he wants to take Imperium out.

Finn hits Sami with Coup de Grâce for the win.

A good match. It wasn’t a long match which did surprise me. I expected it to go on longer. I am assuming that Judgement Day will be heading into SummerSlam for a tag team title match. It will be a nice, fresh challenge for the champions. I’m wondering if Seth will be having a match at SummerSlam against a member of Judgement Day or if he will be against someone else. Grade B-

Judgement Day celebrate in the ring to end the show.

An OK episode of Raw. Again, there was a lot of filler, and a lot of video packages that were not necessary to the episode. I’ll stop saying that Raw needs to go back to 2 hours, because I feel like a broken record with that, but it doesn't mean that I have stopped thinking it is true. We are now less than a month away from SummerSlam, so hopefully we will start to build it up and get a good PLE. Let's hope that the next few weeks of Raw are built up properly and give enough time to creating good feuds.
