No more new Chrisley Knows Best after RAW
Would've been cool if gargano mystery opponent was Ciampa
I hope they don’t burn Becky’s return in this mess.
I did not expect a cut to Nikki Bella, Blake Shelton, and Carson Daly. Lol
Alexa teed off on Nicki with that kick.
I can’t be the only one who’s already tired of Damage CTRL, right? They attack people after every single match. It’s very predictable.
I’m very tired of them
They have no real heat, just kinda there. Yeah they havent done it for me
I think it is expected that Asuka will lose, because they'll keep the fifth member until the match.
I hope this card fleshes out more on Friday.
Closing shot is a replay. Is that a first?
Yea it shut iff at 1101pm but seemed like there was more...guess for the people at the stadium?
That was a weird ass brawl
Io and Asuka are gonna kill each other arent they?
Let’s hope so.
Fantastic main event great brawl
See y'all Saturday
Can they please STOP having Bianca basically take out everyone by herself.
You’re undercutting the very idea of the match, just because you think Bianca needs to be the Terminator or something.
Who is this *esteemed* final member of team Bianca who couldn't be revealed tonight, I wonder? Diana Brooke? Natalya? Spare me...
Kairi Sane! …I wish.
Liv Morgan would make sense, not gonna lie. Her feud with Rhea was dropped out of nowhere, and WWE has nothing else for her at the moment.
youre not that stupid, are you?
I'm not anticipating a big return personally, and see no reason why, if it's Liv, she couldn't have been announced tonight to spice this dull show up
Jeez, they even changed her name?
tozawa changed his clothes, Dana changed her name :P
Rhea vs Bianca is the mania match for me.
That match was originally for this year’s MITB but rhea had health problems, definitely a mania worthy match😁
They don't even need a 5th member. They can still hold their own with 4. 5 is just overkill.
Yeah Bliss and Bianca were winning a 4v2
Corey saying this match is about settling old scores has done more than the last month of this program.
those two should be the main women in the women’s division ngl
i was certain it was Boss Time
I remember Michael Cole was always like ITS BOSS TIME 😂
This is the first raw I’ve watched in like 5 years and I’m pleasantly surprised. In-ring stuff was really good front to back and this new Austin Theory gimmick is dimes. I’m still assuming smackdown is better, though.
Has to be Sasha right? I'm holding out hope for a huge hometown pop.
Heard a rumor they want to get sasha back but she’s most likely not going to be making her return due to her wanting a better deal or something (her hinting AEW and other companies) first choice was and still is Candice but she didn’t get many reactions, they’ll probably chose her though or find someone else like Beth
It’s Becky or Beth
They wouldn’t wait until the show to reveal someone like Candace or Dana
It’s Wendy Richter
They said the reveal would be smackdown so it’s gonna be Candace and nobody will care
Charlotte would be kind of neat except why would she be on Bianca’s team, I guess.
Becky was kayfabe injured by Damage CTRL
Yep, kermit who’s reliable just posted it’s Becky
I think it honestly might be, which is why they’re waiting because she’ll be on Smackdown. I know people think her and Naomi would come back as a team, but Naomi has a place in the Bloodline storytoo
Oh yeah, forgot Kermit in this subreddit mentioning that Becky would return the month if I think October, but nothing came from it
That quick wide angle shot definitely tricked me thinking there was a run in
4v2 and Dmg Ctrl was losing.....
Super-Bianca has 1v3'ed them several times so...
Jesus absolute carnage.
Friendly fire 😂
Asuka mainly jumped on her teammate lol
Audience likes the match and this brawl
Are they contractually obligated to mention Mia's nickname every five minutes?
It's so annoying though lol
So its gonna be a surprise
That headbutt to Bliss made me YELL, fuck I love Rhea
Omg that headbutt looked brutal
So Bianca can basically beat them by herself. Got it.
Damage CTRL look like total fucking jobbers against Bianca.
3 v 1 and she still kicks their asses.
That’s how they’ve had it. It’s boring. There needs to be a new champ. You can have Bianca and Roman both be these unbeatable monsters.
Roman also cheats given he's a heel, has more interesting storytelling even when you know he's winning, and has more aura.
Damn that ending sequence was very NJPWesque. Loved it.
Those velcro on WWE titles drive me nuts.
But anyway, really fun match. Rhea is a beast. She needs to be one of the top stars on Raw in 2023.
Also it’s easier from a psychology standpoint if the heels have the advantage in War Games.
Imagine Rhea vs Chyna. That’ll be a decent match.
Best match of the night. Wish Asuka was treated as more of an equal to Rhea by commentary at least. but this commentary is terrible so it's probably just me.
Is Alexa turning? She doesn't seem like she wants to be there.
I assume they’re still planning on involving her with Wyatt after the hints they’ve dropped but who knows when. I don’t blame her for looking checked out. She’s had no personality since returning and is a lackey to Bianca.
they have teased the bray stuff with her
She’s been public about wanting her previous character back.
Yeah I can’t tell if it’s storyline or just not feeling it tonight.
I suspect it may be dissociating. Jason David Frank, aka the original Green Ranger died in the last couple days and from what I can gather, they were friends.
I've been seeing Mike Rome's Instagram all morning and I know he's pretty upset. I could be wrong tho.
IT WAS EXPLAINED BY THE COMMENTARY THAT SHE LOOKED ANNOYED
OK, BUD. THANKS.
holy shit this camera work is giving me vertigo
I often have to look away it's so bad
They pulled Asuka let her go then pulled her again cut to replay. Wowza
I'm mostly happy that Rhea's solo song got the spotlight.
That’s how I knew she’d win 😂
Jeez all these damn cuts
Match was fantastic.
Death, taxes, and heels having the advantage in wargames
Agreed. NXT did one the other way and it sucked.
I think of Jericho reading from his list of moves in wcw
Fuck this crowd that was phenomenal
I’m glad that match got to end cleanly and not on some BS interference. Rhea’s buildup as a monster needed that to be a clean win
For real that match ended very nicely. Havent seen much of that lately
technically this means Bayley & FInn Balor are aligned?
No it does not
Mia not even coming out
This aged well.
There ya go
she got beatdown by Rhea before the match.
I really hope Bliss turns heel or joins Wyatt after this
Better than their mania match tbh
One of those no-win matches I think but Rhea was the right call imo, she and Asuka have good chemistry
Why didn't Bianca take this match if the advantage was actually important?
Smooth closing sequence there.
Poor asuka. Always jobbing lately. Mostly
Rhea Ripley is my second favorite wrestler in WWE right now. Right behind Roman.
Dominant win for Rhea. Special talent.
Banga’ after banga’
Probably the best match of the night very physical
Nice a clean win
Why'd they have everyone leave and then come back
Damn pinned her clean
As I said the other day, the fact that the women were allowed to pick and they didn't pick Bianca is just stupid.
The moment i say Rheas white makeup is almost gone, she rips off her fake lashes. Thats good shit, id do the same in real life.
This match is stiff AF.
Becky returning tonight?
why they even go backstage just to come back out again
Yeah didn't we just saw damage ctr watching in the locker room? And then suddenly they are back out again
And how’d they get out there? Teleport? WTF
Asuka a wrestling beast
My god Bianca is beautiful
Kevin Patrick sounds like he read the script two days ago and has been studying it since, and has to fake all his excitement
Then when something unplanned happens he just sits there confused
I thought of a great idea. Bianca shouls call her faction EST
Clapping my hands with glee rn
Any wrestler who only gets a two count = Any WR who doesn't catch the ball and doesn't get a flag for PI
If it's not Becky and it's not Sasha then the 5th member will probably be a disappointment no matter what. Unless it's Trish.
Nobody should expect Sasha.
Beth is good too!
That was smooth
Rhea’s expressions are on point. That look she gave Asuka after getting up from the corner was terrifying
Rhea about to murder the ref
kevin patricks forced enthusiasm is pretty lame
This is a great main event
Oh hell the lashes came off
youd think a team literally named damage control would be formulating a plan to help out rhea and control the damage, not helplessly watching backstage
I’m kind of digging the brutality of this match.
Best match of the night.
Rhea looks great (in ring) considering how long she was out. I know she was working live events for a little bit but still, she's a hell of a talent.
Wait, how many factions is Rhea in right now?
Is she just a guest in DMG control?
She’s not a part of Damage Control at all.
maybe we could get a classic Survivor Series match next Monday
Couldn't bother to have Mia stand near her teammates, huh?
Literally just got jumped backstage lol
They wrote her out for the night by Rhea attacking her
Did you miss her get her ass beat like 30 minutes ago?
Did she die? She could have stood there selling.
5th member is Beth Phoenix
I’d be so pissed.
Rhea should be the one to win the title from Bianca when the time comes.
There is no one more perfect at this point.
She deserves it, 100%.
I started watching wwe after 20 years again around wrestlemania.
I didnt know what Rheas character was before, but i am impressed at how fast and successfully they fetishized this badass, dark, dominant woman.
They've booked her perfectly so far to be honest. Fans have gone wild about it, but her presentation has been all serious with her creativity added in there.
Yea i keep thinking "they are really having fun with that" and just tonight realized how much they know what they are doing and its here to stay lol
This is so much better than all of the matches they had last year
Oh hey they're not awkwardly watching the match sideways for once!
wrestling is basically a stage play. you do shit you wouldnt do irl to make sure the audience can see you
You don’t say
well yall always act like theyre spitting in your faces for...making sure you can see everything youre meant to see?
I’m sure nobody would mind if they were to watch a TV normally
it just wouldnt work as well. and the main thing is yall willingly accept all sorts of shit that happens in wrestling that wouldnt happen in an irl fight yet complain about the dumbest minutia
No I don’t accept rollups as a deadly pin or referees passing out at a slight touch either. Just because I’m complaining about one thing doesn’t mean I’m forgiving the other things.
but you likely do accept irish whips and punches that are entire ineffective and moves thatd never work in a million years in a shoot fight. There are just some unrealistic things about wrestling you have to accept. i'm not saying there arent ridiculous things that arent worth complaining about, but the way someone watches tv is a nothingburger
Fifth member is R-Truth in a wig, heR-Truth
Take my imaginary gold
Jesus that corner dive
What’s the main event?
Feels like I tuned in for the start of the show.
C’mon Papa H, give Mauro or Tom Phillips a call and ask them to come back. That or elevate Vince Joseph back to the main roster. This Kevin Patrick experiment can’t go on much longer.
I think when Pat McAfee is back people will get moved around again.
They can’t wait that long. He’s so bad. And Pat doesn’t solve the Kevin Patrick problem because Wade would move to NXT and Booker would be done. They need another color commentator.
Isn't he back in a few weeks I thought it was early December
He is, but it doesn’t solve the problem. Because Pat being back just pushes Wade back to NXT, who has great report with Vince Joseph. And if Vince gets called up, who takes his spot in NXT?
mauro cant mentally do a full schedule and tom is signed to impact
It kills the show.
Not that I blame them, but crowd seemed like a dead one tonight yeah?
used up all their energy booing dom
It's affecting the product. Crowd is bad.
I thought it was one of their better crowds lol they’ve been so disappointing over the last few weeks
