What happened on this week’s Raw?

This week was the final night of the 2020 WWE Draft in an episode of WWE RAW, headed by Stephanie McMahon. Many of SmackDown’s big names like Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss were drafted into Raw. Meanwhile, superstars such as Kevin Owens and The Street Profits were roped in for SmackDown.

A major segment in this week’s episode was Brey Wyatt and Alexa Bliss. They take Andred and Jelina Vega out with Sister Abigals at the same time that Andrade lost a match to Angel Garza.

Elias made a surprise return to this week’s Raw after being away from the in-ring competition for several weeks. He escaped during Jeff Hardy’s triple match with Sath Rollins and AJ Styles and attacked The Charismatic Enigma with a guitar.

After being attacked by Aleister Black for the past few weeks, Kevin Owens faced him in a brutal disqualification match. Owens won after powerbombing Black through a table.

Also, another big surprise came in the main event. It featured a Women’s Battle Royal match to determine the new No. 1 contender for Raw Women’s Champion Asuka. In a shocking move, Lana removes Natalya, later believing that she has won the match.

After losing the pairing with Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke, Natalya switched her alliance with Lana the night before. But, fate favored Lana because she would now have a chance to separate Asuka in next week’s premiere episode of Raw. To know the complete results and highlights of RAW, you can click here.
