WWE Raw live results – October 1, 2018

WWE Raw live results – October 1, 2018


And that wraps up the final episode of Raw before Super Show-Down. It was… a bit naff to be honest.

There was far too much fluff – looking at you Konnor, the B-Team, Bayley etc..

The repeated teases in each faction is very interesting, but the decision making throughout made completely zero sense from start to finish.

The ending of this show saved it.

Thanks for following along with our live coverage of the October 1, 2018 edition of Raw!

Make sure you check back tomorrow for SmackDown and on Saturday for Super Show-Down!


Michaels talks about how he will always pick Triple H over anybody, and claims that ‘Taker made it personal when he asked HBK to make the choice between him and Trips.

IT’S GOTTA BE KANE! Kane appears behind Michaels, lands a right, and ‘Taker joins his brother in the ring.

Just as it looks like a two-on-one situation, Triple H also joins the fray. After a few seconds of chaos, Kane and ‘Taker both land chokeslams on the DX members.

I’ve got to admit – this is quite cool.

Triple H tries to get back to his feet, but ‘Taker nails him with a Tombstone, standing tall before the two clash at Super Show-Down this Saturday.

Very interesting indeed…


Bayley picks up the win with a Bayley to Belly after Bálor Slingbades Jinder on the outside.

Up next, it’s Shawn Michaels making his return to hype up Undertaker vs. Triple H at Super Show-Down. I expect both Mean Mark and Big Paul to come out here, and maybe even Mayor Kane?


Michael Cole just called Sunil Singh, Ranjin Singh. Best Raw ever.


Up next it’s Bayley vs. Alicia Fox because reasons.


After a long, boring match, Owens wins with a roll-up after an Elias distraction.

I’ve been complimentary of Raw in recent weeks.

This show has been dreadful.


Lio Rush saves the day, who after a bit of banter with Elias and KO, introduces his “man” Bobby Lashley.

Lashley takes on KO up next.

Lashley & Cena vs. Elias and KO on Saturday.


This heat is incredible.

Elias and Owens are incredible.

This is fantastic.

“It doesn’t make sense, like having a basketball team in Seattle.

They’re trying to talk over them and hype up Super Show-Down. It ain’t working.


This is what watching Raw often feels like:


Dolph Ziggler runs to the ring to cost Rollins the match, and it’s chaos time.

No, not the New Japan faction, just a load of blokes battering each other, as all six men involved in Raw‘s biggest match at SSD go at it.

It’s Strowman, McIntyre and Ziggler who very much stand tall, and end the segment with the patented Shield fist bump.


Big match up next.

After Braun refers to Ziggler as a “weak link,” McIntyre is set to take on Rollins after the break. On free TV. Again.


WWE is teaming with Susan G. Komen to fight breast cancer:




The B-Team won, that sucks OH WAIT IT’S AoP.

They’re absolutely massacring the B-Team from behind.

Drake Maverick is no longer cosplaying as Akam and Rezar. Good.

AoP land a Super Collider on the B-Team, Drake looks happy, and that’s it for that.


Oh. It’s the Revival.

They didn’t get an entrance.

Konnor did.

Despite the Revival having a phenomenal match last week.



It’s the B-Team! They still exist apparently.

They’re “in action” next.

So they’re either squashing jobbers, or getting squashed by AoP.


They’re actually promoting Evolution for once.

In the worst way possible.

Good Lord.


Konnor just won again.



Michael Cole: “Konnor is such a large man.”

Cheers Geoff.

The crowd is completely silent here.


The Ascension just got a full entrance.

It’s 2018.


Up next it’s Bobby Roode vs. Konnor.

Konnor beat Chad Gable last week.

I am still confused, angry, and absolutely baffled by that.


After a decent match, Ronda picks up the win, as was probably expected.

She’s very, very good.

This Saturday, we’ll see the Riott Squad take on Ronda and the Bellas at Super Show-Down.

Should be erm… interesting. I guess.


Ruby Riott with the Fishhook there.

Must have been studying her Randy Orton tapes.



Ronda’s now getting booed purely because of her association with the Bellas.

Well done to whatever geniuses thought this would work.


Up next after the break, it’s Ruby Riott vs. Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey!

Apparently the Bellas will be there because of course they will.


That was a fantastic little match there.

Both Roman and Dolph excel in making their opponent look good, and they’ve both just done it in tandem.

Nearfalls aplenty, Roman picks up the win with a Spear (which was very nearly ruined by a Kevin Dunn camera cut).

It’s now 1-1 in tonight’s Shield v McZigMan series, and it all hinges on Rollins vs. McIntyre later tonight!


Quick question – Why would Corbin make the matches non-title?

And shouldn’t Ziggler be angry that it isn’t?

That’s two questions but whatever. Zigman is on top as we hit the commercial break.


Before Roman and Ziggler kicks off, Seth and Dean are having a bit of a domestic.

Ambrose basically threatens Rollins because Roman cost him the match, stating “I could be Intercontinental Champion right now.”


Roman wanted to put his Universal Title on the line against Dolph, Corbin objects though, and the non-title match is underway!


Oh, hold on a minute.

McIntyre and Ziggler come out onto the stage joined by Baron Corbin.

Corbin makes two more matches for tonight. Rollins will take on McIntyre later, but up next it’s Roman Reigns vs. Dolph Ziggler!


It’s Strowman’s turn to hit a [finishing maneuver] OUTTA NOWHERE as he hits a Running Powerslam to Dean.

He can’t follow up with a pin, but shortly after lands a second and wait IT’S THE BIG DAWWWGGGG.

Roman hits Braun with a SuperMan Punch, and is joined by Seth Rollins to clear Strowman out the ring.

This does however mean Ambrose lost the match by DQ. At least he didn’t die, I suppose.


Braun continuing on the offensive. before Dean hits a Dirty Deeds OUTTA NOWHERE. Oh wait, that’s someone else’s thing isn’t it.

Despite Braun kicking out at two, Ambrose hits a Suicide Dive and and is now on top!


Matt Hardy with life’s important questions here.

I RT’d because I have a brain.


First commercial break of this affair, and Braun is very much in control early on.

Ambrose looked to take out the big man’s leg but to next-to-no avail as the ‘Monster Among Men’ remains in charge.


A quick reminder of what’s still to come later in the show before this first bout kicks off.


Dean explains, in a really round-about way that only a LUNATIC like him could, that he is happy in the Shield and they’ll always stick together. That sounds like something someone who is planning to leave the Shield would say, right?

Anyway, just before Ambrose can leave the ring, Acting GM of Raw Baron Corbin comes out and gives Ambrose three match options for tonight:

  1. vs. Seth Rollins for the IC Title
  2. vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Title
  3. vs. Braun Strowman

After some deliberation, Ambrose turns the tables and asks for a match against Baron Corbin himself. Which was rather stupid considering Corbin is quite literally the one that makes the matches.

Corbin decides Ambrose can get Strowman, and guess what, it’s happening RIGHT NOW!

I mean after the commercial break, sorry everyone.


Raw kicks off with Shield member Dean Ambrose!

What will he have to say about last week’s shenanigans and the Shield’s upcoming clash against Strowman, Ziggler and McIntyre at Super Show-Down on Saturday?
