The Hurt Business vs The New Day (C) – Raw Tag Team Championship

Prior to the match there are dueling promos between The Hurt Business and The New Day, each trying to one-up the other about the upcoming match.

The match between the two teams is excellent. It especially drives home the athleticism and technical prowess of all 4 members of this match. Kofi and Woods land their greatest hits while Cedric gets to show off his cruiserweight moves while Shelton Benjamin gets to take the rare role of the powerhouse of the group.

The Hurt Business has incredible resiliency, especially Cedric Alexander who endures multiple stomps from all members and even nearly overshoots Kofi, landing in the barrier. Kofi fights off both members of The Hurt Business and The New Day get the win with the Day Break which was an absolutely amazing match.

Team Raw vs Retribution

AJ is sitting this out ringside so it’s 4-on-4. Team Raw still has some issues getting along, though Retribution have none of these issues in synergy. This comes into play as Braun clears the ring of his teammates, but due to a Blind Tag by Riddle he is able to get rolled up by Mustafa Ali, giving Retribution the win.

Bray is deliberate throughout his match with Miz, Bray is able to maintain his upper hand and keep Miz occupied. Morrison tries to get involved but Alexa Bliss tackles him over the railing before Bray pins Miz for the win.

Survivor Series Update

Due to the injury on Mandy Rose and the attack on Dana Brooke, they will be replaced Sunday with Lacey Evans and Peyton Royce. Nia thinks the replacements are the worst idea since Quibi…so timely reference

Drew McIntyre vs Randy Orton (C) – WWE Championship

Drew was given a gift earlier from Sheamus, which is the kilt and tartan kneepads with a claymore. It has plenty of Pyro and a sword, what more is there to love.

The match starts strong in the ring but when Randy tries to escape Drew chases him down and tosses him in the ring. After a missed Claymore Orton tries to escape again but Adam Pearce comes out to make the official announcement that the match can only end in Pinfall or Submission.

This seems to work in Orton’s advantage as he grabs a chair and begins attacking Drew McIntyre. As the match goes outside the ring Orton drives Drew into the announce desk and starts taunting Drew while setting up a table.

McIntyre begins to get back in gear, and manages to put Randy Orton through the table on the outside. Orton is able to reverse McIntyre’s Claymore into a powerslam and gives him a pair of Draping DDT’s off the announce desk. However when Orton attempts an RKO Drew is able to shove him off and hit a Claymore for the win, earning his second WWE Championship.
