WWE RAW News and Notes For 10.9.17
The Shield Officially Reformed and Will Face The Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro, and BRAUN Strowman in a TLC Match at the TLC PPV
-The show started with Miz handing out a bunch of Mizzies then being interrupted by Roman Reigns. Reigns was later joined by Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. They attacked Miz and SheSaro. Later in the night, the Shield attacked BRAUN on stage and powerbombed him through the announce table. Kurt Angle already made the 3-on-3 match, but Miz found Angle and told him the Shield said they would take on anyone, so he got Kurt to add Strowman to the match.
They didn’t come out to the Shield music. That needs to happen at TLC. Also the Shield attacking BRAUN was kind of a heel move. BRAUN beat all three members fair and square recently. I get they wanted BRAUN on the card but is an odd way to do it.
Bray Wyatt Officially Did A Promo As Sister Abigail and It Was AWFUL
-Bray once again appeared in a silhouette and make-up and cut a promo in a weird voice that was a mix of a kid and woman. I don’t even know what was said. If you want a good laugh you should watch it. Poor Finn Balor is stuck in this never ending feud.
Emma “Won” The Right To Face Asuka At TLC
-The most interesting thing to me was that Bayley was the second eliminated in this five way match, by ALICIA FOX. Emma will have a good match with Asuka at least.
Mickie James and Alexa Bliss Had The Best Non-Shield Segment of the Show
-Mickie came out cutting a promo saying she isn’t old and told Alexa to come out. Alexa showed this old-timey video of Mickie’s past accomplishments. Mickie told Alexa to get her biscuit butt down to the ring which caught on with the crowd. Alexa backed off but Mickie attacked her. Alexa finally escaped. This is a nice little hold over program for Alexa before Asuka and Mickie is doing her best work since she came back.
Kalisto defeated Enzo to win the Cruiserweight Title
-This wasa lumberjack match with Angle waiving the no contact rule for one night. Enzo agreed as long as he was in the main event. Kalisto superplexed Enzo onto all the cruisers on the outside. Kalisto then hit the Salida del Sol off the top for the win. Mustafa Ali pulled Enzo off Kalisto to stop him from winning before that. You just know Enzo is winning the Title back at TLC. Another short lived Title reign.
