WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Nov. 5, 2018) from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, featuring the fallout show from the Crown Jewel pay-per-view that went down last week in Saudi Arabia.
Advertised for tonight: Brock Lesnar is once again Universal champion, Survivor Series is just two weeks away, Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins are still Raw tag team champions, and more!
Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the Raw live blog kicks off once the show starts on USA. It will be below this line here. (REMINDER: NO GIFS OR PICS ARE ALLOWED IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED.)
The sun is a luminary whose egress is an opening of the sky which is found on the west, and in the east lies its ingress. The sun is rising through six openings and there are six through with it sets. The moon uses the same, and all the stars, they guide their way. First there goes out the greatest light, whose name is the sun, and then I, whose name is Claire, liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with the roster on the stage and security surrounding the ring as acting Raw general manager Baron Corbin makes his entrance.
We get a recap of Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar from Crown Jewel before Corbin begins. He welcomes us to the show and says it‚Äôs completely normal to have this many security guards. We‚Äôre coming up on an exciting time of the year, and not hanging out with family members you don‚Äôt like, but rather Survivor Series, and our new Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, will face WWE Champion AJ Styles, Raw Women‚Äôs Champion Ronda Rousey will face SmackDown Women‚Äôs Champion, and there‚Äôll also be traditional 5-on-5 men‚Äôs and women‚Äôs Survivor Series elimination matches.
Every match is a chance to show that Raw is the dominant brand, and they have a score to settle because Shane McMahon stole the title of best in the world from Raw and from Dolph Ziggler, but Stephanie McMahon will address that next week. Raw will dominate at Survivor Series, he says, and he‚Äôll go from acting general manager, to permanent general manager.
To assure this, Raw needs a great leader, so he chose himself as captain for the men‚Äôs Survivor Series team. Now, his managerial duties mean he can‚Äôt actually compete in the match, so he‚Äôs going to put together the most dominant team imaginable, starting with Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre. He‚Äôs also putting their erstwhile Dogs of War stablemate Braun Strowman on the team.
Baron knows Braun might be upset with him, but in the end he‚Äôll understand that what he did was a teaching lesson, to show him how he needs to respect authority, and once that‚Äôs in his head, he‚Äôll be the team member they need at Survivor Series. And for the women‚Äôs team, he needed a manager with great skills, so he‚Äôs appointed Alexa Bliss as captain to pick all their members.
Alexa makes her entrance and says she won‚Äôt be competing either, but as a natural-born leader she‚Äôs perfect to lead them to victory. She wants the women to show her they‚Äôve got the killer instinct to do what it takes to win because they‚Äôre not losing to the B show on her watch, and it starts tonight with Riott Squad vs. Natalya, Sasha Banks, & Bayley. Corbin compliments her for her thinking, and she wants to start the match right now–
Enter Kurt Angle. He says competing in the WWE World Cup Tournament to Determine Who Is Best in the World lit a fire under him, and he wants in the Survivor Series team. Baron says that was last year, and this year he decides, so he wants Kurt to take a permanent vacation. Angle says when he was in charge, they settle things in the ring, so he pitches Corbin on a match where if Kurt wins, he‚Äôs not just on the team, he‚Äôs team captain!
Angle derides Baron‚Äôs leadership and says he‚Äôs an embarrassment to Monday Night Raw, which gets the Lone Wolf hot enough to give him the match! If he wins, he‚Äôll be captain, but he shouldn‚Äôt get his hopes up, because the only way he‚Äôs going to Survivor Series is if he buys a ticket. Kurt says the only way Corbin‚Äôs going to Survivor Series is on crutches after he snaps his ankle in two. It‚Äôs true, it‚Äôs damn true!
He leaves and Baron freaks out, demanding the tech crew cut his music. This gets him ‚ÄúYou suck!‚ÄĚ chants and he gives the floor back to Alexa, who again tries to start her tag team match–
Enter Braun Strowman, cleaving through security like a hot knife through butter! He advances on the ring, Corbin bails so he gives chase, hopping over fallen security guys, but the heels on the roster beat on him to try and hold him back! They don‚Äôt stand a chance as the brawl widens, everybody on everybody!
Braun is walking backstage, yelling at crew members and asking where Corbin went, telling them to tell him he‚Äôs going to get These Hands, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Bayley, Sasha Banks, and Natalya are interviewed about their match tonight.
They say the outcome will be the same as it was at Evolution, and Nattie says tonight she‚Äôs wearing her dad‚Äôs sunglasses for luck, and tonight‚Äôs dedicated to the Anvil.
Riott Squad with the attack from the jump, Natalya isolated three-on one, she ducks the Riott Kick, reverses into the Sharpshooter, but Morgan runs interference and Logan breaks it up! Riott with a nearfall, dumping Neidhart to the floor, tag to Sarah, she throws Nattie into the barricade and apron, putting boots to her along the way. Back inside, cover gets two, side headlock, into the corner, Natalya breaks free but Logan tags Morgan in
Snapmare sets up a kick to the spin, again just two, Liv dumps Neidhart out of the ring and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Morgan‚Äôs in control with a reverse chinlock but Neidhart manages to sling her off. Liv right back with an enzuigiri, taking her into the corner to put boots to her, charging in, Nattie sidesteps and crawls under and gets the tag! Sasha Banks in hot, dropkick, hard kick to the ribs, up and over to the apron, big knee and Meteora to the floor takes Logan out!
The Boss heads up top, diving Meteora takes Morgan out, lungblower, rolling through into the Bank Statement crossface but Riott breaks it up! Bayley tries and fails to run Ruby off, she tags in on Morgan, Banks grabs a backslide, roll through into a knee, into the corner, tag to the Hugger! Running knee sets up corner knees, front kick and punches in the corner, Riott puts her face into the turnbuckles but Bayley hangs in there and hits her Stunner over the middle rope to set up a suicide crossbody!
Ruby spikes her with the STO on the floor, back in the cover gets two and Riott contemplates what‚Äôs next for a moment before drawing her up. Suplex reversed to a small package, no good, and Ruby follows it with a reverse chinlock. Bayley rises to her feet, counter Stunner but Riott throws her in the corner and tags Logan in. Sarah puts boots to her, into the cobra clutch before ripcord whipping her throat-first into the second rope for two!
Tag to Liv, she comes in with a tornado X-Factor… NOPE! She tosses Bayley to the floor and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Bayley with an arm drag on Logan that gets a dropkick and a two count nearfall in return. Sarah kicking at her disdainfully, wrenching her neck over the middle rope but the Hugger gets a shot of her own in, the way clear, crawling, and Logan clears Banks from the apron! Float over a slam, tag to Neidhart and she‚Äôs in hot with lariats, the discus lariat sets up a release German suplex!
Forearm, whip, charge countered with an uppercut, Logan off the ropes, wheelbarrow… REVERSED INTO A FACE ERASER BUT RUBY BREAKS IT UP! Into the ‚Äúeverybody do something cool‚ÄĚ phase of the match briefly, Nattie with the Sharpshooter but Riott has her dad‚Äôs sunglasses… AND SHE SNAPS THEM IN HALF! Neidhart looks on as she stomps the Anvil‚Äôs glasses and the Riott Squad leave.
Referee John Cone doesn‚Äôt quite know what to do as a weeping Natalya collects the remains of her father‚Äôs sunglasses and her teammates console her…
I‚Äôm calling this one a no contest, folks.
We cut backstage where Braun Strowman is still looking for Corbin. He storms into a bathroom and knocks all the stall doors open, kicking a locked one in and yelling at WWE writer Ryan Ward, who was just trying to poop in peace.
On that note, we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a recap of Shawn Michaels‚Äô return to in-ring action.
Apollo Crews gets a picture-in-picture promo where he talks about people telling him he has potential, and tonight he‚Äôs gonna start stacking up victories and show everyone why he‚Äôs Raw‚Äôs human highlight reel.
Circling, Mahal with a front kick, overhead elbow, punch in the corner, whip across, up and over, handspring away, leapfrog, drop down, drop kick gets one for Crews! Jinder dumps him to the apron, eats a shoulder throws, slingshot back in, Singh brothers run interference and Mahal clocks Apollo with a knee to the face! Knee to the back, looking for a submission, having trouble locking it on so he grabs a reverse chinlock momentarily.
Half nelson chinlock applied, Crews escapes, jockeying for position, military press drop…
Apollo Crews wins by pinfall with the military press drop into the standing moonsault.
Seth Rollins is walking backstage holding both tag title belts, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Seth Rollins makes his entrance and we get a recap of Dean Ambrose turning on him two weeks ago.
Seth gets in the ring and takes in the ‚ÄúBurn it down!‚ÄĚ chants for a moment before speaking.
He says as ridiculous as his three-belt setup is, he planned on also bringing a giant trophy to the ring, but things didn‚Äôt go his way in the WWE World Cup. On top of that, Baron Corbin, our scumbag GM, helped Brock Lesnar of all people to regain the Universal Championship. After how hard Roman Reigns worked to take that title back, how hard he‚Äôs fighting now, that‚Äôs a slap in the face to everyone in the locker room and everyone here tonight.
And he‚Äôd tell Brock that to his face, but he‚Äôs not here tonight, shocker. But you know who is here? Dean Ambrose. It‚Äôs hard to believe the Shield was on top of the world a few weeks ago, and last week Dean didn‚Äôt even have the guts to stand in the ring across from him, and he doesn‚Äôt have the guts tonight either. Rollins says he‚Äôs here to talk about the tag titles, that it‚Äôs probably impossible for him to defend two titles at once.
Baron Corbin appears on the tron and says he disagrees, he thinks Seth can defend two titles at once, and infact he wants Rollins and his partner to defend them right now… AGAINST THE AUTHORS OF PAIN!
Akam to start, Rollins with a go-behind and an escape once he‚Äôs made his point. Akam with the double leg into the corner, tag to Rezar but Seth is game to fight two-on-one! Looking for a DDT on Akam, Rezar runs him over with a lariat and we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Authors hit a knee drop Demolition Decapitation for two! Smashing Rollins‚Äô face into the mat, Akam grabbing a reverse chinlock, whip reversed and Seth eats the turnbuckles hard! Cover gets two, dragging him into the corner with a front chancery to tag Rezar in. Body blows set up a neck crank, takedown into punches, tag to Akam, off the ropes for Last Chapter but Seth counters with boots up!
Lariat puts Rezar to the floor, punches and chops for Akam, whip revered, duck lariats, suicide dive on Rezar! Pass Akam to the floor, off the ropes again… ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE! Back in, springboard lariat, off the ropes, Sling Blade connects, diving blockbuster follows, only two! Kick to the gut, setting Blackout up but DRAKE MAVERICK runs interference .AoP ready to finish, Rollins with a Frankensteiner, superkicks for everybody, perched up top… FROG SPLASH CAN‚ÄôT KEEP THE TAG TITLES IN HIS HANDS! Going for Blackout… REZAR COUNTERS INTO A POWERBOMB! Tag made, suplex lift to set him up…
Authors of Pain win by pinfall with a powerbomb / neckbreaker combination to win the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship.
The new tag champions take their leave, and Dean Ambrose enters through the crowd wearing a jacket that looks like he‚Äôs been sleeping in an abandoned quarry. He asks if Rollins wants to know why he did what did before shaking his head and backing off… DIRTY DEEDS! Ambrose heads up the ramp, pausing at the stage before leaving. Seth recovers and crawls to the ropes and hobbles up the ramp, determination on his face.
We get a replay of Becky Lynch‚Äôs promo calling Ronda Rousey out from SmackDown last week.
Commentary hypes up Angle/Corbin and we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a recap of tonight‚Äôs opening segment, because Raw is three hours long. (Three hours long.)
Baron Corbin is interviewed backstage.
He says he didn‚Äôt run from Braun and he‚Äôs not afraid of him and will wrestle him in the ring, but Strowman doesn‚Äôt want that, he wants to destroy him and he‚Äôs not letting that happen. Asked why he set up a makeshift studio in a storage room, he complains about telling the world where he is. There‚Äôs a banging at the door and Braun is here!
He clears out security with ease, but the delay gives Baron enough time to hightail it out of there.
Dolph Ziggler makes his entrance and says despite how WWE World Cup Tournament to Determine Who Is Best in the World ended, Shane McMahon isn‚Äôt the best in the world, he is.
He scratched and clawed to be the best and what happens? The conspiracy kicks in. Don‚Äôt believe him, check it out– Drew McIntyre got sent to the back, a SmackDown referee let Miz jump him from behind, and then Shane McMahon bullied his way into the finals of a tournament he wasn‚Äôt even in. Finally–
Elias strums his guitar and we see that he‚Äôs on the stage to sing us a song.
He plays a little bit of Seven Nation Army to go with the crowd chanting ‚ÄúOh, walk with Elias!‚ÄĚ to the same tune before launching into his schtick. He says he just got off the phone with Liam and Noel Gallagher, where he played a song for them and they said if he plays that song, Oasis will reunite. He‚Äôs worked miracles before, but–
Dolph cuts him off and says it‚Äôll be a miracle if anyone‚Äôs awake after his song, to which Elias says that was almost funny but he needs to shut his mouth and let him sing. The Drifter starts in on his song, which runs Ziggler down, and Dolph cuts him off mid-song to demand he come and show him to his face. Elias obliges and heads towards the ring, but we go to break before a match can break out.
Back from commercial we get a hype reel for the Lucha House Party and a handcam promo from the Revival talking about how they respect tag team wrestling and Lucha House Party do not.
Circling, collar and elbow, Ziggler takes him down into a pin, front chancery when that comes up empty, into a reverse chinlock, Elias posts to his feet so Dolph lets him go and hits a dropkick. Scraping his eyes across the top rope, referee Dan Engler warns him off, whip reversed, back elbow from the Drifter, scoop and a slam for two. Side headlock takeover, to the mat, Ziggler posts to his feet but can‚Äôt break free so he goes to the ropes to force the break.
Big right hand on the break, uppercut into a neckbreaker, only good for one so Dolph follows by grabbping a bodyscissors wristlock on the mat. Into a pin for a moment, shifting to a reverse chinlock, refusing to let Elias drift free. The Drifter flopping like a fish on the mat, trying to find a reversal, Ziggler changes to a front chancery, breaking free with wristlocks and leading Dolph to clobber him.
Into the corner, jockeing for position, Elias off the top with the diving elbow but Ziggler rolls away and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Dolph‚Äôs still got the bodyscissors on and transitions to a high rear chinlock, pulling his grip back over Elias‚Äô forehead. Back to the chinlock for a beat, neckbreaker countered into a backslide but Ziggler slips out with an uppercut! Disdainful slaps, Elias takes him down, right hands, Ziggler recovers and scrapes his eyes over the top rope again.
Forearm to the kidney, smash his face into the turnbuckles but the Drifter blocks his punches and fires rights of his own! Neckbreaker connects this time, followed by the Heartstopper elbow for two and into the bodyscissors reverse chinlock again. Letting the bodyscissors go as Elias struggles, both men to their feet, Ziggler with the right hands, whip reversed and the Drifter comes off the ropes with a shoulder block.
Putting boots to the Show-Off in the corner, dragging him back in when he goes to leave, electric chair, making him think about it but Ziggler slips out! Jockeying for position, schoolboy pin gets two! Elias with the high knee, nearfall of his own! Looking for Drift Away, denied, he dodges the Fameasser and this time the electric chair powerbomb connects… NO GOOD!
Ziggler staggered, Elias chops away but Dolph is able to get strikes of his own, headbutt, another two count off a schoolboy, sidestep the knee, Zig Zag… ELIAS DRIFTS HIS FOOT TO THE BOTTOM ROPE! Back to the action, leg hook…
Elias wins by pinfall with Drift Away.
Commentary hypes up an appearance from Ronda Rousey and we go to break on a Mixed Match Challenge hype reel.
Back from commercial, Kurt Angle is interviewed backstage.
He says Baron Corbin is very dangerous and poses a threat, but he knows his weaknesses and how to beat him, and a fire‚Äôs been lit inside of him, and he‚Äôs going onto Survivor Series as team captain. Oh it‚Äôs true, it‚Äôs damn true.
Ronda Rousey makes her entrance.
She soaks in the atmosphere for a moment before getting on the mic and saying that Becky Lynch says she‚Äôs going to rip her arm off? It‚Äôs cute, adorable actually, and it‚Äôs easy to see why everybody loves Becky, to which almost on cue the crowd starts a ‚ÄúBecky!‚ÄĚ chant. Ronday says no doubt she worked hard through adversity to be The Man, figuratively.
At Evolution, Lynch put the performance of a lifetime on, and without question, she has her respect. But don‚Äôt mistake Rousey‚Äôs respect for weakness. When Becky‚Äôs alarm went off for school, her mom was waking her to try and break her arm, when she was in clown college, she was training for the Olympics, and when she was a flight attendant, she was a UFC champion.
It‚Äôs gonna take more than a new outfit to beat her, Ronda says, she‚Äôs a natural born killer (New Jack?) honed to an edge and she wants Lynch to bring all of her angst, rage, and pent-up resentment, because she wants a challenge. Becky may say she‚Äôs The Man, but she‚Äôs the Baddest Bitch on the Planet. Ronda goes to leave…
Enter Nia Jax. She gets in the ring and on the mic and says it‚Äôs great that Rousey‚Äôs all fired up, and Survivor Series is just like Evolution, she‚Äôs not gonna just be fighting for herself, but for the entire Raw locker room, and she knows she won‚Äôt let her down. But after she makes Becky Lynch tap out, she should remember that Jax will be there waiting for her.
They jaw at each other in jocular fashion off-mic as Ember Moon makes her entrance.
A video package for WWE‚Äôs partnership with Girl Up follows, and we toss back to the arena to see that Ember and Nia will be wrestling right before we go to break.
Back from commercial in time for the bell!
Moon with a go-behind, Jax throws her off, float over a slam, leg kicks, chipping away at the larger woman but Nia whips Ember clean to the floor! Throwing her back inside, Moon meets her with a dropkick, handspring forearm in the corner, bulldog countered, duck a lariat, off the ropes with a crossbody but Jax swats her to the mat! Stinger splash, a biel, another Stinger splash and a biel to go with it as well!
Cover gets two, cobra clutch to follow it up, wrenching her down for maximum torque but Moon fights out with back elbows, duck a lariat, going for a schoolboy but Nia drags her to her feet with a goozle! Shrugging off kicks, Jax wipes her out with a headbutt and follows it up with Snake Eyes! Freight train lariat on the charge, off the ropes and the leg drop comes up empty when Moon rolls out of the way!
Kicks to the midsection, staggering Nia, Shotei connects, springboard crossbody gets two and Ember lets out a primal scream! Falling lariat… NOPE! Jax shoves her away, Moon ducks a Stinger splash, to the second, tornado DDT denied but an enzuigiri lands true. Off the ropes, pop-up…
Nia Jax wins by pinfall with a pop-up Samoan Drop.
Tamina interrupts the post-match, marching to the ring and getting in Nia‚Äôs face. They square off over Moon‚Äôs fallen body, Snuka looking down at her before drawing her up and dropping her with a Samoan drop of her own! Jax tells Tamina to turn her over, Tamina obliges with a Boston Crab and Nia hits a trio of elbow drops to the back!
The two islanders hug and raise each other‚Äôs hand.
Finn Balor is interviewed backstage.
He says Bobby Lashley is the most powerful and explosive man he‚Äôs ever wrestled, and he‚Äôs getting more vicious every week. It didn‚Äôt feel good when ‚Äúthat runt‚ÄĚ Lio Rush slapped him in the face, but walking into Manchester will feel good, because Manchester is Balor Club, and Balor Club is for everyone.
On that inclusive note, we go to break.
Back from commercial, commentary plugs WrestleMania travel packages.
We cut backstage where an interview rolls up on Baron Corbin holding a car door handle. He complains that whenever Charly Caruso shows up, so does Braun Strowman, and he‚Äôs got an emergency appointment, so Kurt Angle won‚Äôt be wrestling him, he‚Äôll be wrestling Drew McIntyre.
On cue, Strowman shows up and chases after the car, but he‚Äôs not able to catch up and give Corbin These Hands.
Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush make their entrance.
Rush hypes up his man, saying Michaelangelo on his best day couldn‚Äôt sculpt art as nice as Lashley, and tells him to give Manchester his best pose… which is mooning the crowd without taking his trunks down. Lio says he‚Äôs not trying to insult them, just show off his well-developed glutes and hamstrings. The crowd boos and Rush says they went and did it, and now Bob‚Äôs gonna beat Finn Balor up again.
Finn makes his entrance, but we go to break before the match begins.
Back from commercial in time for the bell!
Circling, Lashley in with a kick, smashing Balor into the turnbuckles, a right hand, a stomp, choking him over the top rope and breaking at referee Darrick Moore‚Äôs command. Snap suplex, only two and Finn fights back from against the ropes, right hand, off the ropes, shotgun dropkick sends Bob to the floor, off the ropes… LIO RUSH TRIPS HIM UP!
Lashley capitalizes, grounded punches get one and he follows it up with a reverse chinlock. Breaking for a quick cover and right back into the hold before moving on to punches in the corner and a choke, again breaking at the last moment as Moore counts. Boot up on the charge, off the ropes for a forearm, sunset flip counters a powerbomb, double leg into the double stomp!
Chop in the corner, whip reversed, up and over, caught on Bob‚Äôs shoulder but Balor slips out and hits the Sling Blade! Waiting for him to rise, shotgun dropkick countered with a lariat! Finn to the apron, going for the enzuigiri but again Lashley‚Äôs got him scouted and clobbers him with a back elbow! Delayed vertical suplex from the apron back in… NOPE!
Backbreaker rack countered into a pinning predicament… LASHLEY KICKS OUT! Kick from the apron, Balor goes up top but Rush runs interference and gives Bob enough time to get up and duck the dive! Pass to the floor, Finn wipes Lio out with a dropkick through the ropes and squares him up… only for Lashley to intercept and ram him into the barricade!
Back inside, up with the gutwrench…
Bobby Lashley wins by pinfall with the Yokosuka Cutter.
Drew McIntyre makes his entrance before Lashley, Rush, or Balor can clear out. He squares up with Bob and dares him to make his move! Lashley backs down at Lio‚Äôs behest, and they leave Finn to the giant Scotsman. McIntyre helps him up… CLAYMORE!
We go to break before his main event match against Kurt Angle can begin.
Back from commercial, commentary hypes up an appearance from Stephanie McMahon next week, as well as Alexa Bliss announcing the Raw women‚Äôs Survivor Series team and the return of Brock Lesnar.
Kurt Angle jumps Drew McIntyre before the bell, forcing him into the corner and putting boots to him until referee Chad Patton backs him off!
We‚Äôve got a bell and Angle presses the attack further until McIntyre snaps off a headbutt that knocks him clean to the mat! Mounted punches, putting boots to him in the corner, big chops follow and into a kneeling armbar. Kurt fights to his feet but Drew takes him right back down and scrapes the bones of his forearm across the Olympic gold medalist‚Äôs face to boot.
Angle rises, right hands, off the ropes and he gets cut off with an elbow for two. Neckbreaker to follow and right back to the armbar. Wrenching it in but Kurt rises to his feet and throws forearms to break. Whip to the corner, Angle sidesteps the charge and hits the Angle Slam only for McIntyre to roll to the floor as we go to break.
Back from commercial, McIntyre gets a nearfall off a neckbreaker and follows it up with a stomp to the extremities. Deadlift straight suplex gets two more and Drew follows with a short-arm lariat before going back to the kneeling armbar. Taking him into the corner for punches and boots to follow, snapmare back into the armbar, continuing to try and grind the legend down.
Angle gets to his feet, out with elbows, slipping over a slam and the rolling German suplexes commence! Angle ducks a lariat… AND RUNS RIGHT INTO A CLAYMORE! Drew refuses to capitalize immediately, kneeling in the ropes, a sinister smile playing across his face as he rises to his feet. Angle trying to fight back into it and McIntyre asks if this is the legendary Kurt Angle.
Angle shoots in, Drew clubs him down and stomps his arm! Lying down next to him, face to face, McIntyre stares a hole in him, squaring him up, offering his leg up! Angle shoots in again, and this time Drew rains hammerfists down on his back as he blocks! McIntyre draws Kurt up and demands he look him in the eyes and calls him an embarrassment to himself and his family!
Angle fighting mad, he shoots in, picks the leg, and he‚Äôs got the ankle lock in the middle of the ring! Kurt wrenches it in, Drew‚Äôs got nowhere to go but he manages to roll through and kick him off! The damage done, he tries to slap some life back into his ankle and rises to his feet, hobbling… MCINTYRE STEALS THE ANGLE SLAM! HE‚ÄôS GOT AN ANKLE LOCK OF HIS OWN IN! FALLING BACK, GRAPEVINE THE LEG… IT‚ÄôS OVER!
Drew McIntyre wins by submission with an ankle lock.
McIntyre leaves with pride on his face as Angle tries to collect himself.
That‚Äôs the show, folks.
