RAW once again took the top three spots in the demographic among cable originals on Monday night. With hour one taking the top spot of the three hours this week.
This week’s episode opened with a promo from Becky Lynch, who solidified her return as a babyface while also confirming the news that she separated her shoulder against Bianca Belair at SummerSlam. It’s unknown how long Lynch will be out of the ring at this time. The main event of the show saw The Usos defeat The Mysterios to retain the Undisputed WWE World Tag Team Titles. Following the match, The Judgment Day attacked Rey and Dominik, which brought Edge out to try and even the odds, although he accidentally ended up spearing Dominik in the process to close to the show.
