Acero’s WWE RAW Review 10.26.20  

What up, peeps! You may notice that there’s no AJ Lee and that Alexa Bliss has taken over! I just hit Tony Acero over the head with the Money in the Bank briefcase Tucker-style and am taking over Raw! (At least until he gets here, he’s running a bit late). We’re gonna be starting with Drew McIntyre in the ring, so that should be a segment!

We start with a recap of McIntyre’s loss to Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell including his Cell fall, all that coughing and crawling, and then the finish where Orton dodged the Claymore and hit the RKO for his 14th world championship.

And now we’re into the theme song. I know it has haters but I dig this song and while it’s an odd choice for Raw, I think they put together pretty effectively.

And here comes McIntyre down the ring. He’s not in his ring gear and has that very Drew-esque look on his face. He gets a mic and says that he’s been trying to think of the words to best express how he feels losing the title to Orton last night. He says he hes no excuses; just one promise. He will be WWE Champion once again. He says there’s a quote from Rocky: it’s not about how hard you hit, but how hard you get hit. If you follow his career, you’ll know no matter how he gets knocked down, he’ll get back up twice as hard. And why is he in such a good mood after last night? If we could read his mind right now, if we knew what was going on up there, we’d be scared.

And HERE COMES THE MIZ. Oh boy. Miz comes out with Morrison. Miz calls for applause for Miz and McIntyre tells them to choose their words carefully. They say Drew’s run is very impressive: almost as impressive as being two-time Mr. MITB. Miz says all good things come to an end, like Otis’ MITB run and Drew’s reign. They want to commend Drew and say they don’t have to worry about facing Orton, because Miz has the briefcase and he wants everyone to understand that it gives him a World Title match any time he wants. He’s defended it before and became WWE Champion by beating Randy Orton. That happened right here in Orlando, Miz dodged an RKO and hit the Skyll Crushing Finale, Angry Miz girl was upset and then he ran backstage and celebrated with his wife Maryse. He says he was talking to Maryse and that history could repeat itself because Orton’s a guest on Moment of Bliss. Morrison says things could be worse, and Miz says imagine if he’d won? He could have been standing here in front of Miz and Morrison outnumbered and have Miz cash in. Morrison says look at the bright side; there’s no target on his back and no need to worry about Miz anymore. He says he hopes it doesn’t take 19 years for him to get the title — and McIntyre headbutts Miz! Morrison tries to do a Scottish brogue and McIntyre takes him down, then starts to throw him across the ring! Miz scurried away and McIntyre pulls Morrison in the ring — but Miz slides in and chop blocks McIntyre, allowing Morrison to escape. McIntyre stomps Miz’s shades and McIntyre says he’s got an idea to run by management; it’s going to be a bad night for Miz and Morrison. “Idiots.”

The announcers break down the three Survivor Series qualifiers for tonight: Keith Lee vs. Elias, Matt Riddle vs. Sheamus, and Jeff Hardy vs. AJ Styles.

Big thanks to Jeremy Thomas for taking care of the report for me during that opening. I’ve found Miz and Morrison to be deplorable, so refused to do even the least of work with regards to them. Lol, jk, it was LA traffic.

Oh, joy, it’s that time of the year where we get to pretend that people have brand loyalty!

AJ is here to talk about being captain of Team Raw, and in order to do that, he’s gotta beat the guy he’s been facing on Smackdown over the summer. See how fresh and new this product is?!?!

Match 1: AJ Styles vs Jeff Hardy

Jeff is quick to send Aj to the outside, then fly off the top rope, right into the hands of the big bad body guard of AJ.

Back from a break, and AJ hits an enziguri in the ring. Brainbuster from AJ get a 1..2..NO!!! So did the big guy just lay Jeff down softly?

AJ heads to the apron. He readies the forearm. AJ struggles to stand. He heads to the corner on his hands and knees. AJ comes back in and misses a splash. Inverted atomic drop. Leg drop then a dropkick! Splash and a cover for 1..2..NO!!! Jeff with a kick to AJ then a swinging kick to AJ in the corner. Cover from Jeff for 1..2…NO!!! knee to the back from AJ. Side Russian from Jeff. Stacked cover from Jeff. 1….2…NO!!! AJ with Torture Rack. He spins Jeff out and Jeff lands on his back. Cover for 1..2..NO!!! Styles for aa Clash, Jeff escapes, goes for Twist of Fate, Pele kick is reversed, Jeff with a suplex onto AJ! Jeff to the top rope. He stops to stare at the big guy. That’s enough to distract, and AJ clips Jeff, causing him to tumble down from the corner. AJ to the apron.

Jeff kicks him, locks up for Twist of Fate, AJ sends him into the post, then clotheslines Jeff to the outside. Phenomenal Forearm. Pin for 1..2…3!!!

Fortunately, the big guy didn’t do much during the match. Unfortunately, jeff is apparently not immune to the disease that makes most wrestlers seemingly an idiot when someone is outside. In terms of wrestling, AJ is great, but we’ve seen this match before and the only difference was a torture rack bomb.
Total Rating: *1/2
Match Time: 9:58

As AJ celebrates at the top of the ramp, Elias clocks Jeff Hardy with a guitar from behind.

R-TRUTH is backstage, and he says that he will be out tonight to scout his competition. This is dangerous, of course, but being champion is dangerous. He eats and sleeps dangerously. His third middle name is Dangerously.

Match 2: Drew Gulak and Akira Tozawa vs Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik

Akira and Lince ot start. Akira goes full ninja, and strikes the throat. Tag to Drew who comes in to double team against Lince. Axes to the chest and Drew covers for a less than 1. Drew drops down Lince across his knee. Drew with a fist to the gut, and he spins it a abit. Lince hits the ropes and flies off with aflip and an X-Factor.

R-Truth’s music hits, and Truth comes out to scope the talent. Akira drops down from the apron and calls a ref over to roll Truth up for 1..2..NO!!! Truth sends akira into the barriade. Metalik flies off the apron and Truth ducks under and enters the ring. Lince covers for 1..2..NO!!! Drew tosses him aside and covers for 1..2..NO!!!

Lince to the top rope. Flies off the top with a crossbody and a pin to Drew for 1..2…3!!

Fuck you

Akira rolls up Truth, then Lince, then Drew tries, all of them getting a 2 count.

WE RETURN to Firefly Funhouse!

All the puppets are here for a feast! In comes Bray to invite us to his very mad tea party. RAmblin tells Bray to stop bein upset and cheer up. Bray says not that kind of mad.

In comes Alexa, who has tea. Splendid, says Bray. She made it extra special for Ramblin Rabbit. It’s delicious. What’s in it? Arsenic. This, of course, kills Ramblin Rabbit.

Bray laughs it off, as does Alexa. They’re all a little mad around here. But how do we know Alexa is mad? Well, she must be. Bray explains that this is a magical place. He comforts and heels and there is only one thing you have to do. LET HIM IN.

Alexa explains she’s going to speak to Orton later tonight. Bray doesn’t seem to happy with this. Ramblin turns out ok, and tells his wife that he is coming home. Bray murders him with Seth’s staff.

BACKSTAGE, Keith Lee speaks to Charley about what Braun did last week. He couldn’t beat Lee clean, so he went below the belt. He likes to call himself a monster, but the next time Lee faces Braun, he will show him a real monster. Not tonight, though. Tonight, he will destroy Elias and go on to Survivor Series. Prepare ourselves, because he is about to walk with Elias.

WE RETURN to Nia who comes to Pearce with a list of who she thinks she should be on Team RAW for the women, since she is team captain. Pearce says Nia is not team captain. Shayna says, of course, she is, and hands over her own list – which Nia is not on. Pearce tells them he will take both lists into consideration, but neither are team captain.

ELIAS is in the ring strumming his instrument.

He says that tonight, they are celebrating his new album. It will change your life, so pick it up. Right now, he’s at #2 on the chart. Let’s get to #1. It’s called “Universal Truth,” and that’s because there is a truth, and it is….

Hot Pockets should only be eaten while drunk.

Match 2: Elias vs Keith Lee

Lockup to start, and Elias gets a side headlock. Lee shoves him to the ropes and tackles him down. Elias works the left arm. Shoulder to shoulder from lee, sending Elias down. Another shoulder. Lee whips and Elias hit a back elbow. Whip but Lee holds on, sends Elias, hops over Elias, under, crossbody to Elias! Lee to the outside. Elias hangs him up on the ropes. Kick through the ropes to Lee. Elias leaves the ring. Lee with a huge tackle, sending Elias over the announce booth!

We are back and Lee works the left arm from behind. He drops an elbow to the shoulder. Another. Lee wants a powerbomb, but Elias drops some fists then head scissors. High knee to Lee.

Lee takes advantage until Elias mule kicks out of the corner then drops Lee face first. Cover for 1..2..NO!!! Elias to the top rope.

Jeff Hardy’s music hits, and Elias, on the top rope, looks around for him.

It appears he suffers the same disease Jeff does as his distraction allows for Lee to grab him, take him off the corner, and hit a Spirit Bomb. Pin for 1.2…3!!!!

Winner: Keith Lee
A tame run-of-the-mill match, which is not something you want to say for Lee, who just recently got to RAW, and Elias who just returned to RAW.
Total Rating: **
Match Time: 10:05

Elias takes way to long to show anger about his loss. Jeff shows up to smack him across the back with a guitar and tell him “Amen.”

Backstage, someone pooped in The Hurt Business’s bathroom.

AFTER A VIDEO PACKAGE, Orton is with Charley and she wonders if he is concerned about The Fiend making an appearance. He says no, he is not concerned. He doesn’t care if it’s Reigns, Bray, or even Drew, at the end of the day, the only people that need to be concerned are those that cross randy Orton.

Y’all, I swear to Jeebus, I fell asleep.

He is about to offer the rose to Dana, but in comes Nia. Nia takes his rose. Nia tells them that if the two of them end up on their team.

Dana says no, they haven’t been beaten since they’ve been on RAW, so it’s their team – nia and Shayna better fall in line or watch their backs.

Looks like we’ll be going to the tried and true Mr. MITB Loser sequence of The Miz’s briefcase won, where if you have the briefcase, you will almost always lose because they think said briefcase creates immunity. It does not. At least the action was fun.

Matt Riddle is out for some action. My laptop is at 3%. My charger is at the bar. This oughta be fun.

ALI is pissed backstage. He says Retribution is not failing. It’s not a team. It’s a mission. The good men and women that stand by him are willing to sacrifice everything for this mission. Understand one thing; they win when we suffer, and we will win because they decide when we will get shut down.

Winner: Sheamus
Well this was surprising as all hell! What a banger of a match! Unfortunately, the stakes are not realll all that high, as there should be no reason outside of maybe money that either of these men should even want to be on a team for a show they just got to, and a show that really is no different than Smackdown. But that’s adding logic to what was a bad ass match. These guys deserve a round of applause when they get to the back, because they had no right to give us something this good on what has been a shit episode of RAW.

Match Time: Timing Issues

Alexa is in the middle of the ring with pigtails, overalls that say “Yowie Wowie,” and a striped shirt. She’s all smiles, and her song has a bit of a twist to it. She introduces Orton with a smile.

Alexa offers Orton a seat, but he’s good – he thinks he’ll stand. Alexa wants to talk about his win. Did it surprise him that he was able to deliver a super-duper performance?

Orton wonders what there is to be surprised about. What’s surprising – does Alexa have one for him? Alexa chuckles, then says no surprises. What good talk show host wouldnt want a WWE Champion on their show? Duh? Especially when Orton and Drew…BURNED THE HOUSE DOWN.


And there it is, says Orton. Listen, Bliss. He knows Bray better than anyone. He knows that he’s close, so he will ask one time – Where is The Fiend?

Bliss laughs it off, chuckles, and here comes Drew.

So Bliss just binged The Harley Quinn cartoon, didn’t she?

Drew rushes the ring and attacks orton. They go back and forth. Bliss is seated on the top rope, laughing and pointing. Drew stomps Orton in the corner then tosses a chair. There goes another one. He apologizes to the giglging Bliss. He hits Orton with a right hand. Drew wants a Claymore. The screens crackle, go out in shards, then turn back on and Drew stands alone in the middle of the ring while The Fiend’s shrieking emits from the speakers. Orton is at the top of the ramp. He turns, and The Fiend stands behind him.

Orton walks towards the ring slowly. Drew is on the apron. He drops down. He and Orton go at it! Drew sends Orton into the barricade, again, a right hand. Drew promises to attack Orton forever until he gets his title back. Drew sends Orton into – no, Orton reveres and sends Drew into the barricade! Orton sends him towards the table. Drew fights bakc with right hands. He sends Orton into the steps. Drew grabs Orton and pulls back on his chin rom behind. Drew sends Orton into the table then hits him with a right hand. Orton kicks, back suplex onto the table from Orton to Drew. Orton removes his vest, finally, mounts Drew on the table, and continues with right hands as we go off the air.

End Show

The final score: review Poor
The 411
Tonight's RAW was a chore to get through. We open with Drew, who just went through "hell" for his title, and lost it, only to come to work the next day and be relatively cool about it all. The Miz and Morrison just don't do it for me in 2020. They're not funny. Humor is subjective, but I recall a more cohesive sense of humor amongst the two in their first run. We then get to the Survivor Series matches where not a single one of the six really have any stake to fight for other than being on a team on a show that nearly all of them JUST JOINED and also isn't different or against Smackdown in the slightest. So, no, not even sense of pride could carry over into matches that seem relatively pointless. Still, the good news is that it gave us Sheamus vs Riddle, which was quite possibly the only good match on the show. The women's portion of the show didn't really up the quality in any way, as I just don't care about the team of Mandy and Dana, and I really don't care about Nia, Shayna, and their constant one-upmanship. I don't know who Shayna is supposed to be, but this is a far cry from the girl that bit Becky's neck. I'm sure you know by now how I feel about Retribution, but even I wouldn't call for the treatment they have been getting now that Ali has been revealed as the leader. Listen, I'm not saying I want them to suddenly run over talent on RAW, and The Hurt Business has much to gain from the powerhouse they are becoming, but what the hell is Mia Yim doing pretending that bugs are crawling all over here to cause a loss for MVP? How creatively inept do you have to be? This show gets a 4, and it is in equal parts due to Alexa Bliss and Sheamus vs Riddle.
