Watch WWE Raw: Sept. 9, 2019
Raw Returns to Madison Square Garden/Countdown to WWE Clash of Champions 2019
Following the chaos of last week’s Raw opening, would the existence of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin be sufficient to hold Seth Rollins & Braun Strowman’s Universal Championship Match contract signing over the finish line? The reply is, obviously, hell yeah. Not just was the offer signed, sealed and delivered, however the second straight interruption in the O.C. was rapidly switched thoroughly because of the Texas Rattlesnake’s presence. Following The O.C.’s jokes brought to some retaliatory strike by Rollins & Strowman that required out Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, AJ Styles found themself alone within the ring with Austin, who quickly hit the 2-time WWE Champion by having an emphatic Stunner and left, getting quite satisfyingly showed up and elevated hell as well.
Cedric Alexander def. U . s . States Champion AJ Styles via Disqualification
If turnabout is fair play, then nobody will begrudge Cedric Alexander for jump-beginning his complement AJ Styles just seconds following the Phenomenal One was laid low with a Stunner from “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. In the end, it had been Styles and also the O.C. who ambushed the previous WWE Cruiserweight Champion a week ago, debatably playing a component in costing Alexander a King from the Ring quarterfinal match against Baron Corbin.
But all of those other O.C. didn’t have aim of departing Styles unguarded: Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson ambushed Alexander again mid-match, handing the previous champion a disqualification win and teeing him up for any second beating which was only stopped through the unlikely – yet very welcome – arrival from the Viking Raiders, whose lingering difficulties with The O.C. from the couple of days back finally found the forefront. Erik & Ivar handedly helped Alexander dispatch the great siblings, departing Styles & Co. with increased questions than solutions for that second straight amount of time in 30 minutes.

Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch & Charlotte now Flair def. SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley & Sasha Banks
Unusual occasions alllow for unusual allies, along with the Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection damaged bad, it fell to some very, most unlikely team to insert them in their place: Becky Lynch and Charlotte now Flair. They made it happen inside a tag team bout that pit the “Four Horsewomen” against one another speaks well to the vast majority from the victors’ chances a few days ago at WWE Clash of Champions, where Becky will defend the Raw Women’s Title against Sasha Banks, while Charlotte now challenges for Bayley’s SmackDown Women’s Championship – though it’s understandable a Sunday sweep is way from the sure factor.
For just one, Bayley and Banks gave their opponents fits through the match, leaning on their own tag team experience – remember, they’re the very first WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions – to place the impromptu pairing on their own heels. Becky also designed a indicate target Banks outdoors the ring in the center of the match, putting the fate from the bout in risk when all women brawled round the ring. But Charlotte now, who had been calm, awesome and picked up throughout, performed closer in callous fashion: The nine-time Women’s Champion blocked a high-rope elbow drop from Bayley and nailed Natural Selection to demonstrate that, at the minimum, The Queen may well be a step in front of the SmackDown Women’s Champion his or her title bout approaches. Whether Becky can tell exactly the same about Sasha, however, is really a question still to become clarified.
Rey Mysterio def. Gran Metalik
Individuals have been asking if Rey Mysterio has returned. We’re thinking he’s. After a psychological almost-retirement he got spoken from in the eleventh hour by his boy, the legendary Superstar made his official in-ring return against Gran Metalik inside a victorious effort on Raw.
If Mysterio’s victory appeared somewhat inevitable – there is way too much emotion playing for him to simply accept defeat – Metalik certainly made him work with it. As fun-loving because the King from the Ropes continues to be using the Lucha House Party recently, he’s probably the most accomplished luchadores ever and it was a jogger-in the 2016 Cruiserweight Classic. It had been that form of Metalik that Mysterio got on Raw, also it was that version he’d to outwit and out-grind.
Possibly the job was taller than Mysterio expected: The King from the Ropes casually swatted away Mysterio’s signature maneuvers at the beginning of the match (supported with a taunting finger-wag, believe it or not) along with a step-up plancha within the ropes left The Best Underdog searching worse for put on. But Rey found a means because he always does, finally landing Metalik around the ropes before connecting having a 619-Frog Splash combo to secure the win. Following the match, Mysterio demonstrated sportsmanship to his opponent, trembling Metalik’s hands in thank you for getting the very best in him, and, possibly, for setting the bar for those his opponents for follow
Baron Corbin def. Ricochet and Samoa Joe to succeed towards the King from the Ring Final
Two days ago, “King Corbin” would be a joke, a boast, a braggadocious dress-up abide by a guy who remains so absolutely loathed through the WWE World they simply didn’t allow themselves to think it might become a reality. Now, it’s one match from being a reality: Baron Corbin is incorporated in the King from the Ring Final, getting won the very first Triple Threat in tournament history to depart Ricochet and Samoa Joe in the dust, and also the throne just inches from his grasp.
Corbin’s victory was unlikely, and not simply due to his crowd support. Within the final stretch of the match that were, typically, a defunct heat, The Lone Wolf found themself kept in Joe’s Coquina Clutch and fading fast before Ricochet required out both his opponents at the same time having a moonsault from the apron. Using The Lone Wolf apparently dispatched, Ricochet steered clear of a Clutch of their own hitting Joe using the 630, but unknowingly to him, Corbin had retrieved and selected his moment to strike: The previous Constable put Ricochet within the barricade and brazenly stole the pin, earning – in other words, taking – his place within the tournament final, where he’ll face either Elias or Chad Gable for that throne.
Possibly we ought to have experienced next: For the disdain heaped on Baron Corbin through the WWE World, the person has put together some truly impressive honorifics. Should he prevail, history won’t appreciate everyday him because the Superstar whose reign nobody saw coming, but because the one that possibly must have been the favourite all along.
A week ago, a revved-up Natalya fell victim to some less-than-sportsmanlike strategy by Lacey Evans, resulting in a Woman’s Right along with a 1-2-3 for that unhappy Queen of Harts. But things may be finally turning around for that former SmackDown Women’s Champion: Natalya made handy work from the Sassy Southern Belle, overwhelming her in early stages after a little immediate disrespect from Evans.
Lacey required control with a few more dirty pool around the outdoors, but her pause to symbolically toss a handkerchief in Natalya’s face – like the distraction that got her the win a week ago – backfired once the Queen of Harts booted her within the stomach and kept in the Sharpshooter for that victory. Natalya pointedly declined to produce the hold following the bell too, delivering an unmistakable message to anybody who thought she’d be simple pickings: The tough summer time has ended, and things will change moving forward.
Thanks for visiting “Firefly Fun House,” where other people are simply buddies you haven’t met yet. A minimum of, that’s Bray Wyatt’s look at things, though he’d to educate his Fun House pals in the future around to his view: Ramblin’ Rabbit, Huskus the Pig, Whim the Buzzard and Abby the Witch have been all bent in poor condition since “Stone Cold” Steve Austin made buddies with Seth Rollins & Braun Strowman – Abby’s clock being stuck at 3:16.
But Bray, somewhat incensed through the growing cries of “Stranger Danger!” quieted his crew and glued Abby’s clock by smashing it having a hammer, causing it to see 11:19 rather. Also, he required the chance to help remind them that Seth & Braun had made three new buddies in Cedric Alexander and also the Viking Raiders, showing that other people aren’t inherently bad. Regrettably, where they’re going, buddies won’t save them, and also the Fiend – who had been practically invoked in what Rollins & Strowman required from Bray in another existence – wouldn’t forget.
Universal and Raw Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins, Raw Tag Team Champion Braun Strowman, Cedric Alexander & The Viking Raiders def. The O.C., Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode
It required longer than anticipated, but Cedric Alexander got his man: The previous WWE Cruiserweight Champion pinned U . s . States Champion AJ Styles within the final moments of the truly chaotic 10-Man Tag Team Match that encompassed champions, challengers and grudge matches all-in-one.
Along the side of the victors were Alexander, Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman and also the Viking Raiders the losing side encompassed the whole O.C. in addition to Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode, who’ll challenge Rollins & Strowman for that Raw Tag Team Titles on Sunday. It had been The Viking Raiders who demonstrated is the difference-maker – particularly, Ivar, who required the entire field having a top-rope cannonball towards the outdoors close to the finish from the match. That astounding maneuver introduced things lower to Alexander and designs, and Cedric pounced having a lightning-quick Lumbar Check to close the match. Directly on cue, the glass shattered and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin re-emerged to start a Damaged Skull IPA beer party using the winners, ending Raw in truly classic fashion.
Lost within the well-deserved thrill of victory, however, was one interesting wrinkle: Braun Strowman had the match basically won previously, until Rollins was shoved on the top of him to interrupt in the pinfall. The miscue result in the first friction between your Raw Tag Team Champions and Universal Championship opponents, and, possibly, an indication of stormy skies with this weekend. For the time being, however, “Stone Cold’s” here, the IPAs are flowing, and get up. Anything beyond that’s a problem for Sunday
