Acero’s WWE RAW Review 11.28.22  

Keep Refreshing For The Latest Results

It’s the fallout of Wargames, and I’m kinda excited. LETS GOOOO!!!!

Took multivitamins and my usual fat-burner because I planned to go to the gym before RAW.
Got busy during errands, bought a Bang without thinking.
Realized I wouldn’t make it to the gym in time.
Now I’m here covering RAW, hands jittery, heart goin crazy
RAW bout to be LITTTTT

The Bloodline has arrived after a nice video package focusing on Sami Zayn’s actions. They all appear to be very happy.

Becky Lynch is here to start the show!

Becky is adored by the crowd and Kevin Patrick alike, as he practically creams his pants talking about her WarGames antics.

Becky says it feels good to be back and welcomes us to RAW. She has missed us. She loves us, but this doesn’t feel right, her standing in the ring. She wants to come say hi to the crowd. She walks over to a dude in the front row with her shirt on. She slaps some hands, heads to the steps, gives props to a Seth Rollins shirt wearer. She gets to Bobby, a tall man in an X-Men sweater. BOBBY gets a nice little chant. Becky says after four months on the bench, coming back was the most physically brutal way she could have returned. She heads over to Zachary, and says now that she is back, she is ready to put her body on the line and jump off the top of cages to take care of business.

Zach: “That’s what THE MAN does!”

Lol. Norfolk got some promo kings.

She says shes seen a lot of new faces come in and come back, and she cant wait to slap the hell out of all of them.

Bayley is over it. She comes out in all black with the mic, tells Becky when she saw her come out, she thought she’d return to WWE and felt a little humbled since she’s sitting in the crowd. Then she goes on and on and on. SHUT UP. Bayley has been putting her body on the line for months. Becky has ONE brutal match, and you all love her? She’s gotten no respect the last four months. Ladder Match, Last Woman’s Standing Match, WarGames, and we idiots have no appreciation.

Becky warns Bayley to dare not call Bob a peasant.

Bayley: “Ey Bob, YOU SUCK!”

Becky says they don’t appreciate Bayley because she lost; she kept losing. Her and her lackies started this four months ago, and she thought she ended it Saturday, but if Bayley wants to fight, she’ll come down and fight.

Bayley says she’s in the ring.

Bob: “Go kick her butt, Becky!”

As she is about to fight, we see Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky walking down the steps. Becky fights them both off with a sign from a fan. They chase her up the ramp as she tries to fight back. Bayley runs up and we get a 3-on-1.

We head to a merch table as all three girls fight Becky, and she hits them with a fake chain. Bayley grabs a mini MitB briefcase lunchbox and hits Becky in the back. Haha. This is ridiculously awesome.

Bayley mounts Becky. Some rights are short-lived as Becky up kicks her and slams her down just as refs and security come to stop the fight.

Bayley is sick of these people, and sick of Becky.

A Mia Yim video package is followed by the entrance of Rhea and her boo thang.

Match 1: Rhea Ripley vs “Michin” Mia Yim

They are slow to start, smirking at each other before the eventual LOCKUP! Mia corners Rhea, and the ref breaks it up. Rhea misses a huge kick. Arm drag from Mia, another. Rhea rolls out of the ring.

This was a great showing for those that only know Yim from the mask-wearing days of Retribution. Rhea looked only slightly better, but they left enough meat on the bone for more. Nice opener.

Match Time: 14:21

Commentary lets us know The Street Profits are returning!

Earlier tonight, Saxton stopped them upon entry to welcome them back. Tonight, they are taking on Alpha Academy. How does it feel to be back?

Ford says a lot has changed. Becky is back, Mysterio left, Theory lost his briefcase, but The Street Profits are back tonight and back in business.

Chad Gable and Otis are here to cut off their catchphrase with his own. While they were out on their little vacation, he has been on RAW, making himself the best person on the show. He was the one who requested a match with them two, and tonight they will put Street Profits back on the shelf.

Dawkins calls Gable the Elf on the Shelf. Ford tells them beating them tonight will be no different than any time before.

The Usos are here! They come out with Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn.

Sami posing with them like he’s super Ucey is just a joy to see.

Jimmy says The Bloodline has no cracks, but someone backstage is hella mad. Kevin Owens is mad cuz he aint Sami’s dawg, he’s thiers! Sami says Jimmy has always been on his side no matter what. He’s really been down since day one.

As for Jey, he knows it has not always been easy. Most of that time, he didn’t trust Sami and definitely didn’t like him. At WarGames, the way that he accepted Sami into the family, THAT was Ucey!

Jey has a straight face here. Sami says any Bloodline business that they have to handle, they are on the same page.

Sami extends his hand. Jey smiles, hesitates, slaps it and hugs Sami. BIG HUGS from Sami! In comes Jimmy! Sami asks for Solo to bring it in. He stands, arms crossed, Jimmy and Jey want it now, Solo considers it, and….

Here comes Kevin Owens!

Sami tells him to stop at the ramp, tells him before he does something stupid,

But Owens cuts him off, says that’s not why he is out here at all. Owens is out here to tell him that he gets it. He understands why Sami did this. How many times has Owens done the exact same thing?V He gets it. Owens is not mad, cant blame him one bit. Owens is not here to fight, it’s the opposite. Since Saturday, he cant help but think about how for 20 years, their careers have been linked to one another but after Saturday…

Owens doesn’t wanna fight Sami, doesn’t wanna team with him, ride to shows together, he’s just done.

Sami says that’s fine, he feels the same way. He is ok if he is never in the same room as Owens ever again. He doesn’t need Owens anymore. He has family now.

Owens says he is happy for Sami with all that’s been going on. Finally, everyone out here and in the WWE Universe can finally see just how great Sami is. He’s known for 20 years, and to see Sami get this recognition, he loves it. But here’s the thing: it doesn’t matter how many times they tell Sami he is in The Bloodline, or how many times he calls them family. He is not their real blood, and never will be.

Jey on the mic, tells Sami not to worry bout him. He’s got this. He just mad cuz he ain’t got no damn family around him. Check this out, KO, if he’s got a problem with sami, he’s got a problem with Jey Uso now, too.

Owens smirks, says he has good news. He is done with Sami, but he’s not done with Jey Uso. He’ll kick ass any day of the week!

We are reminded of last month when Candice LeRae dissed Bayley. She is in action tonight. We see her walking the halls, and from behind, Nikki Cross is creepin. She is stopped by HOLY SHIT Cathy looking stone cold foxy. Wowza. Lemem catch my breath…

She wants to ask Candice a question, and Candice tries to find her footing before asking for the mic.

Candice re-introduces herself with a mini promo. She will be taking Dakota Kai out, tonight!

The Street Profits are here in Dodger inspired gear. They head through the crowd as we finish our commercial free hour.

Seriously…good GOD!

We are backstage, and Matt Riddle is asked what’s it like teaming with Elias? Riddle says it’s been great, wonders if Elias remembers last week. Elias sees himself as a solo artist, but he does admit they have some chemistry. Riddle says they should go after the tag titles. Elias says he never has had WWE gold.

The Bloodline is here to tell them they never will. They offer an any time, any place opening.

Match 3: The Alpha Academy vs The Street Profits

Gable and Ford to start. He works the arm, Ford kips up out of it, works the left arm.

Ford to Otis: “IF he tag you, Imma whoop your ass, too!”

Gable escapes the arm lock and gets his own, then tags in Otis. Otis with a knee, attacks the back. Tag to Gable, side headlock .tag to Dawkins to hit a shoulder tackle. He grabs the left arm of Gable. Dawkins sits on the back, Gable tries to grab t he leg, Gable escapes, grabs the leg, front face lock, spin on the mat,Dawkins hops on his back into a side headlock. Gable hops over Dawkins, hits the ropes, ducks under, Gable catches him and just slams Gable down hard! Ouch. Arm drag from Galne, misses a right hand, Dawkins flips over Gable, arm drag, another one from Gable, dropkick from Dawkins! Cover for 1..2..NO!!!! Tag to Ford. Ford in hits a hard clothesline. Otis in, gets sent to the outside immediately. Ford sends Gable over the top rope onto Otis! Dawkins in,. STEREO FRONT FLIPS TO THE OUTSIDE!!!

We are back to Otis distracting the ref while he has a rollup on Gable. Gable is able to escape before the ref counts, but gets a shoulder from the apron from Ford. Ford hits a hard right to Otis in the face! Northern Lights from Gable to Ford for 1..2..NO!!! Gable smacks Dawkins off the apron. Gable waits, Ford stands, lcok up from behind, roll through into a Germ-NO! Elbow from Ford, he misses a right, but locks the head for a DDT! Tag to Otis. He rushes the corner and eats ringpost as Ford moves. Otis falls to his back, Ford is slow to stand. Dawkins wants in. Tag to Gable! Tag to Dawkins!

Video package for the US Title Triple Threat match.

Afterwards, we get an official teaser for the Royal Rumble.

We come back to the show and Austin Theory is here!

He brings up how everyone said he looked stupid, but who looks stupid now. We will never call him a kid again. He beat Rollins and Lashley at the same time. He is the face of Monday Night Raw. Since Day 1, everyone has had a problem with him. Why is that? One word: jealousy. Everybody wants to be him. We all see the inevitable. He is younger, stronger, better, and unescapable. The Austin Theory era begins now.

Seth Rollins is out in a hell of a fit and a manbun. Hard not to hate him.

Rollins tells Austin to shut his mouth and let them sing.

Theory wonders what happens when someone so young, talented, and far ahead of everyone in the industry makes the so-called undisputed future look like the past?

Rollins tells Theory that he may have lucked his way into the title on Saturday, but it doesn’t change a damned thing. He knows deep down that Monday Nights belong to Seth. Before he goes, he only has one thing left to say: congratulations, KID.

What’s the matter? You don’t like it? Want to hit him? Want to fight him? They can do it right here and now, says Seth. Give him the best shot, KID.

Seth closes his eyes and exposes his chin as the crowd sings. Theory stares on in anger. He says he’ll fight Seth on his time. He then gets in Seth’s ear and tells him, “I am not your damn kid.”

Seth is left in the ring alone, smiling and laughing.

Theory walks up the ramp with a scowl, turns at the top, stares Seth down hard, and the crowd sings along.

We are here for another episode of “WWE Investigates” with Byron Saxton. He goes over the Lumis and Miz saga.

BACK FROM BREAK and The Miz is stopped backstage by Saxton. He has a LV bag and it is full of money, apparently. Miz says he has re-injured his hand, and competing in this condition is against medical advise.

Adam Pearce is here to tell Miz that’s not even the right hand.

Miz: “No, it’s the left hand.”

Pearce says this match will happen tonight. Miz says Dexter’s hopes will end tonight, and before this show is over, Pearce will be hearing from his lawyer.

The Miz tries to walk back from his entrance, but Pearce is there to walk him to the ring. Pearce takes the bag from Miz, Dexter is standing in front of the ring. We turn to Miz, turn back to the ring, and Lumis is gone. Ah, he’s creepin by the barricade. He attacks Miz, then sends him into the ring. Lumis hops into the ring, and Miz hits him with a DDT! He wants the bell rung.

Match 4: Dexter Lumis vs The Miz

Lumis pops up into a crawl and grabs Miz, miz hits the ropes. Thesz Press. Lumis hits an axe handle to the face. Miz crawls out, Lumis pulls himself out of the ring like a weirdo. Uppercut. He pulls Miz off the apron and lsmas his head into the apron TV. It flickers as Dexter grabs Miz by he neck and sends him into the barricade. Lumis grabs Dexter, sends him to the announce table. He rips off the table cover, grabs Miz, shoots him onto the table. Lumis kicks a tv aside, locks up for a Rock Bottom, but Miz elbows out and tries for the Skull Crushing Finale. Lumis shoots him off the table into the timekeeper’s area.

We are BACK and Dexter and Miz are in the crowd. Miz is laid out on a table. Dexter walks the barricade and drops an elbow onto The Miz.

We are back in the ring with a turnbuckle exposed. Miz shoves Dexter into it face first, rolls him up, feet on the ropes, gets a 1..2…NO!!! Miz is shocked but is quick to call the end. He turns.

Sitout Rock Bottom from Dexter! He locks in a submission. Miz taps.

Winner: Dexter Lumis
Well, it was something…

Match Time: 9:42

Pearce is standing by with a contract. Lumis signs it and takes the bag full of money. He heads over to the crowd and hands over a $100 to a kid in the crowd. Another $100, this time for a few more kids in the crowd. One kid checks to see if it’s real.

As he hands the final dollar, Miz attacks him from behind and grabs the bag! He then takes the $100 away from THE KID!!! Hahahahaa.

Miz walks up the ramp, but Johnny Gargano is there to hit a Superkick!

Gargano takes the $100 and gives it back to the kid.

Match 5: Dakota Kai vs Candice LeRae

We come back to the match already going down. Bayley and Iyo are being walked to the back, yelling at Pearce to watch his people on the roster. Lol. Damn.

Bianca is glad this is all over with. Her and Bayley have been goin at it for months. It’s over. Bianca held this division down, and she made the call to becky, and every plan that Damage Control had backfired. Bianca is bery happy with the team she chose.

We are BACK and Jey has owens in the corner. Whip from Owens, hits a hard clothesline. He is favoring the back, runs with a cannonball anyway. They meet in the center of the ring and trade blows.

We come back from break again, and I just realized I missed a bit of this match due to a temporary internet outage, and not due to a very elongated commercial break.

Jey mounts Owens with some right hands, not caring about his hand at all at this point. Jey asks Owens if he’s done or nah. Jey corners Owens and slaps him some before hitting some hard forearms. Sami looks very proud of his family. Owens fires out fo the corner with a hard clothesline. He drops to his knees, stands and sotmps the back. Owens to the top rope. Nice.

End Show

The final score: review Very Good
The 411
I gotta say, they could have coasted tonight after Survivor Series, as it was a great success from all accounts, including the dudes here at 411. Instead, they kept the foot on the gas and came out swinging! Excessive metaphors aside, tonight's episode was a great sign that the Triple H era just hits different. Typically, a commercial-free hour (or episode for that matter) is unbearable, with obvious telegraphs and elongated segments leading into one another that make little sense or come off as eye-rolling. Not to say, a No Contest leading into an eight-person isn't just that (obvious and elongated), but it came off as a bit more natural than usual. Y'all remember the pandemic episodes? Yeesh. Anyway, after that first hour, we saw a second hour that dipped in quality but still held its own with the presence of some NXT Alum to keep it trucking. The returning Street Profits did their thing, and we saw the blue brand's biggest story show its face on the red brand to close out the show. All of this coupled with a GREAT crowd (likely enhanced by the numerous moments of the show INCLUDING them) just made for a solid three hours.
