Monday Night Raw took place inside the WWE ThunderDome at the Amway Center in Orlando Florida with virtual fans in attendance. This show was building towards WWE TLC. Randy Orton makes an appearance on the Fire Fly Fun House with Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss.

The show started off with everyone on the stags paying tribute to Pat Patterson.

Randy Orton came out to the ring. He says any man would tremble at The Fiend but he is no ordinary man. He said he’ll be knocking on the front door to see who will let him in. Bray Wyatt appeared on the screen for Fire Fly Fun House. He said Alexa wasn’t here because of how mean Randy was to her. He introduces the game “Let’s Get Randy.” He says he wants a match with Bray tonight, not The Fiend since he has him at TLC. Bray accepts.

Riddle gives them a bronut and tells them to let him know if they’ve seen him. Ricochet and Dana get interviewed asking about their alliance. Ricochet said he is not imposed of being on a team and there are strength in numbers. Dana said she won’t let anyone disrespect her and she won’t hesitate to slap around Ali again.

Miz asks how he is going to stop Drew McIntyre. Styles said it is challenging but he’ll beat him with a chair across his back until it breaks. He’ll also put McIntyre through a table and Drew’s passion won’t be a thing when he knocks him out to climb the ladder to retrieve the title. Miz said they will annihilate Drew and Sheamus tonight in their 3 on 2 handicap match. They make fun of Drew and Sheamus. Sheamus came out to the ring praising the impressions of him and Drew but he tells him that he will put them in the gutter where they belong. They tell Sheamus he is outnumbered but then Sheamus tells them they are wrong. Drew comes out to come into the ring with Sheamus. Drew tells AJ that he has had the odds against him every time and he has prevailed every time. He says Miz and Morrison keep coming back for more.

The Fiend showed up and put the Mandible Claw on Randy, making him pass out in the ring.

Overall Review: This was another show that just felt like another dud. Most of the show was just showing recaps of what happened earlier in the night and last Monday which was just felt lazy. Some of the matches were just the typical matches they’ve always been doing with the distraction/roll up win like the Asuka and Shayna match which just makes Shayna look dumb as she kept shouting at Lana while she kept her eye off Asuka. I know they’re trying to play the whole story of Asuka and Lana being the underdog team and I’m cool with how they are using Lana but it just looked goofy and repetitive to other ways they’ve ended matches on the show. I did like that Cedric Alexander continued to get some shine and showcase this new attitude of his in the match with Kofi even though they had Kofi compete twice to fill some time. I also liked that the 3 on 2 handicap match didn’t main event the show and the way it ended with Bray and Randy was a better cliffhanger type ending even though it wasn’t a exciting type of cliffhanger, it was something. Also, congrats to Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins for the birth of their daughter Roux.

Grade: 5/10
