The latest episode of WWE Raw came with its fair share of suprises, the biggest being the return of Triple H. The Game announced his return by hitting the Pedigree on Jason Jordan, and declaring himself the fifth member of Team Raw for Survivor Series.
One week out from Survivor Series, it was a major bombshell that Triple H dropped on the WWE universe, with Kurt Angle's future as Raw General manager hanging in the balance after recent events.
Raw also saw several high profile matches take place, with Bayley grabbing a spot on the RAW Women's Survivor Series team with an opportunistic win in a triple threat match with Dana brooke and Mickie James.
Ahead of Enzo Amore's Cruiserweight title defence at Survivor Series kick-off against Kalisto, he teamed up with with Drew Gulak and took the win with a JawdonZo on Akira Tozawa, who was partnered with Kalisto, for the pin.
In one of the more significant matches on Raw, Angle justified his selection of his son Jason Jordan on Team Raw by pitting him against Bray Wyatt. Jordan put up a terrific show, taking the win but injuring his knee in the process. Wayatt made matters worse by jumping Jordan after the match was over, forcing Angle to drop Jordan from the team when The Game made his appearance.
Finn Balor and Samoa Joe renewed their rivalry, but this time as team mates against Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Despite heavy friction between the two, Joe took out Gallows outside the ring, leaving Balor to claim the win for the unlikely team with a Coup de Grace on Anderson.
In their first Six-Man Tag Team Match in over three years, The Shield got back to business disposing The Miz, Cesaro and Sheamus. For the finish, Reigns with a Superman Punch on Cesaro, Ambrose hit a Dirty Deeds on Sheamus. Miz was left alone with The Shield staring him down in the ring. Reigns put him down with a spear, only for Ambrose and Rollins to lift Miz for the big triple powerbomb and Reigns obliged, covering for the pin.
The crowd was also treated to Paul Heyman and WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, with Heyman addressing the issue of his client's match against WWE Champion AJ Styles.
Raw signed off with a huge impact, quite literally. The main event saw two giants face off against each other, with Braun Strowman taking on Kane. After getting in a few shots at the start, Strowman pounded Kane into submission with the help of a steel chair. Having gained the ascendancy, Strowman lifted Kane up for the running powerslam, driving the Big Red Monster clean through the ring in an astonishing display of strength, just as Raw went off air.
