'Monday Night Raw' Results (10/26): Randy Orton Appears on 'A Moment of Bliss, 'Survivor Series' Matches Announced, More

By

The post episode of Monday Night Raw following Hell in the Cell began with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre inside the Thunder-Dome.

McIntyre says he has been looking for the words to describe how he feels about losing his championship to Randy Orton twenty-four hours earlier. He says it is all on him and there are no excuses. He promises that he will be champion again and that he will get back up again. McIntyre reveals if anyone could read his mind, they would be scared. He is interrupted by Miz and Morrison. The Miz, newely Money in the Bank winner, decided to rub McIntyre’s loss in his face. McIntyre tells Miz and Morrison to watch themselves because he will drop them if need be.

Miz reminds everyone that he is now Money in the Bank winner. He relives his previous successful cash-in years prior. Miz and Morrison tell McIntyre he should feel relieved, for there is no longer a target on his back. Morrison says he hopes it won’t take Drew another nineteen years to become champion. McIntyre gets tired of the duo and drops both Miz and Morrison. They roll out of the ring to escape, but McIntyre stomps Morrison’s sunglasses. Drew McIntyre promises a bad evening for both men.

 

A qualifying match to be on Team Raw for Survivor Series between AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy is next.

Styles reminds everyone that he hasn’t lost since he returned to Raw two weeks ago. AJ says he will address the question that is on everyone’s mind: why is he in a qualifying match? He says that he should be captain of Team Raw, let alone qualify. Styles says if Jeff tries to pull what he did with his knee brace, then Styles’ associate will”make him wish he never put down the bottle”.  Jeff Hardy made his entrance and the match begins. Hardy and AJ pick up the speed quick, with Hardy hitting AJ to the outside. Hardy climbs to the top rope in order to put away AJ’s associate, but the big man catches him as we break for commercial.

Back and forth banter between the two veterans kept the match exciting and interesting. AJ tries to go for the Phenomenal Forearm early, but Hardy rolls out of the way and counters. Styles regains control with a neckbreaker, but Jeff counters himself with a jawbreaker. Hardy goes for a pinfall, but AJ kicks out. After a few more minutes of these two hitting each other with everything they had, AJ Styles hits Jeff Hardy with the Phenomenal Forearm to win the match.

Drew Gulack and Akira Tozawa take on Lucha House Party in a tag match. Tozawa and Lince Dorado start things off. Tozawa tags in Gulack early, both bringing down Dorado. R-Truth then comes out to scout. However, everyone forgets about the tag match and goes after Truth for the 24/7 title. Lucha House Party wins the tag match, but all focus is on R-Truth as he runs to the back.

Wyatt says she is fitting in, for they are all mad in here. Bliss asks how does he know that she is mad. Wyatt answers she would not fit in if she wasn’t. Wyatt covers her eyes with his gloved hand and then removes it. Alexa’s eyes are glowing red as she replies, ” Let. Him. In.” Alexa then says Randy Orton will be her guest on A Moment of Bliss. Wyatt goes into a trance, but soon snaps out of it. Rambling Rabbit comes back to life before Bray Wyatt kills him again with a hammer.

Elias is out in the ring, saying he is happy to put Jeff Hardy behind him. He says he will sing a song in celebration, for he is about to beat Keith Lee to join Team Raw. Before he can start, Lee interrupts for his match. Keith Lee has a disgusted look on his face, upset still from the previous week.

After Elias got the better hand of Keith Lee, he went to finish the job from the top rope. However, Jeff Hardy’s music hit, distracting Elias.
