Monday Night RAW 10/26/2020

Drew McIntyre entered to start the show. He said he had no excuses over losing to Randy Orton but promised he would be WWE Champion again. McIntyre prided himself on getting up even stronger after getting knocked down. McIntyre knew people thought he should be more upset about losing but if you knew what was on his mind, you’d be afraid. 

The Miz and John Morrison interrupted. Miz wanted McIntyre to take a bow. McIntyre warned them not to get too close. Morrison ran down everyone McIntyre has beaten along the way. Miz said that wasn’t as impressive as being a two-time Mr. Money in the Bank. Morrison said McIntyre wasn’t a loser but he wasn’t a winner, either. 

Miz said McIntyre didn’t have to worry about facing Orton again because he had the briefcase. He had it before and cashed it in on Orton the first time. Not only that, but it happened here in Orlando. Miz bragged about the moment. 

They went on for a while until McIntyre headbutted Miz. Morrison began using a Scottish accent so McIntyre punched him and suplexed him twice. McIntyre was about to do worse but Miz saved Morrison with a chop-block. Miz and Morrison ran away. McIntyre stomped on Morrison’s sunglasses. He called them idiots and said they were in for a long night......I mean it is a long af show.

Everyone played their parts well

McIntyre faces Miz tonight.

Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were in the back doing an impression of the Street Profits. They held red solo cups and Kingston acted like he would pass out. Woods told him he was going too far with his impression. They plugged that they would be facing the Street Profits at Survivor Series. 

Asuka joined them and said she wants the smoke. New Day also announced that Asuka was scheduled to face Sasha Banks at Survivor Series. Also, Orton will face Roman Reigns. 

Hurt Business showed up to plug Lashley’s match against Zayn. They also wanted a shot at New Day’s tag titles. New Day laughed. Asuka said they would try and fail. She led a “New Day rocks” chant. Fun segment.

RAW should be a shout league. Because there are no such things as heels and faces anymore.

Despite my bitching RAW was a thumbs up (why not?)

mostly because of the pacing and build to Survivor Series
