Following last night’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, tonight’s Monday Night Raw will both explore the aftermath and celebrate Halloween. It’s not so often that Halloween falls on a Monday, and so the WWE will presumably take full advantage of that with a particularly spooky episode. The show will air at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the USA Network. Check back in at 8 for match results and spoilers, and read on for a preview of the night’s events.
At Hell in a Cell last night, Kevin Owens defeated Seth Rollins to retain the WWE Universal Championship. However, this was in part due to the interference of his best friend, Chris Jericho, who ran into the cell when the referee was being replaced. Presumably, Seth Rollins will take issue with this, pointing to Jericho’s involvement as evidence that he didn’t lose fairly. He needs something to latch on to after being defeated during so many title shots in a row, and after all, Rollins really did have Owens pinned at one point and would have won if not for Chris Jericho dragging the referee out of the ring.
In the main event, of course, Charlotte defeated Sasha Banks to win back the Raw Women’s Championship during the first female Hell in a Cell match in WWE history. This Women’s Championship belt just can’t stop bouncing back and forth between the two of them like a hot potato. Charlotte had a clean victory, so how will The Boss respond to all of this? Will she take issue with Charlotte’s continued targeting of her back, which she has been experiencing pain in since SummerSlam? And when could Sasha’s rematch go down?
In the tag team division, The New Day retained their title in a match against Cesaro and Sheamus, but that’s only because they were disqualified. Cesaro and Sheamus were clearly unhappy with this result, so they will presumably demand a rematch on tonight’s Raw.
Finally, Goldberg is scheduled to appear and respond to Brock Lesnar’s response last week. What will he have to say to The Beast, and could we find out any more information about when this match will take place?
