Be back here tomorrow for the full Best and Worst of Raw column.
WWE Raw Results:
— The show opened with Goldberg coming to the ring to call out Brock Lesnar. Paul Heyman tricked Goldberg into thinking Lesnar was here, but instead Rusev came out to insult Goldberg. The two scuffled, and then Goldberg hit Rusev with a Jackhammer and Heyman with a spear.
1. Trick Or Streetfight: Enzo Amore defeated Luke Gallows. Pumpkins and candy corn-painted kendo sticks were legal in this one. Karl Anderson and Big Cass both got involved and Enzo got the pin after hitting a pumpkin-wearing Gallows with a top rope DDT.
2. WWE Cruiserweight Championship: TJ Perkins defeated Brian Kendrick (c) by countout. Perkins managed to beat a 10-count back into the ring, but Kendrick opted to take the countout loss and keep his title. An irate Perkins snapped after the match and locked in a kneebar on Kendrick outside the ring.
— Mick Foley came to the ring to talk about Hell in the Cell and said he is proud of everyone but Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho. He was interrupted by Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho, and Foley said it kills him to admit, but he needs them both on Team Raw at the Survivor Series. He also needs The Guy, and brought out Roman Reigns. Jericho challenged Reigns to a United States Championship match tonight. Foley made the match official.
3. Braun Strowman won a Battle Royal for a spot on Team Raw at Survivor Series. The match came down to Sami Zayn and Braun Strowman. Strowman went to toss Zayn with the powerslam and Zayn held on with a headlock, but Strowman was able to power up and toss Zayn out to earn a spot at Survivor Series.
4. Rich Swann, Lince Dorado and Cedric Alexander defeated Drew Gulak, Tony Nese and Ariya Daivari. In an almost-rematch from Hell in a Cell, Swann got the pin on Nese after a Swann Kick.
— Charlotte came to the ring to brag about her Hell in a Cell title win and to issue a warning to Nikki Bella and the rest of Team Smackdown at the Survivor Series. Bayley came to the ring to congratulate Charlotte and ask for a title shot. Charlotte ran down Bayley and then introduced her opponent: Nia Jax.
5. Nia Jax defeated Bayley. Charlotte sat in on commentary for this match. Jax won by pinfall after a Samoan Drop.
6. Cesaro and Sheamus defeated the Shining Stars. Sheamus forced Epico to tap out to the Clover Leaf.
7. United States Championship match: Roman Reigns (c) defeated Chris Jericho. Reigns hit Jericho with a spear and went for the cover, but Kevin Owens jumped in the ring and attacked Reigns to give Jericho the DQ loss.
— After the match, Jericho and Owens beat down Reigns until Seth Rollins ran in for the save. Rollins went for the Pedigree on Jericho, but Owens managed to save his best friend for once. Once Owens and Jericho left, Rollins and Reigns had a staredown in the ring.
