...
Well, that's a wrap. We hope you enjoyed Sportkeeda's coverage of Monday Night Raw. We hope you join us tomorrow for SmackDown Live. 
...
...
...
The SmackDown Live Superstars then apprehend Kurt Angle and drag him back to the ring. Shane tells Angle to bring his Gold Medal and what's left of his roster to Survivor Series. McMahon promises to finish the job in Houston before leaving through the crowd. 
...
The SmackDown wrestlers wander backstage, destroying jabronis and civilians alike. They even go into the locker room and destroy notable Superstars such as Matt Hardy, the Club and Jason Jodan. Even the Shield falls prey to the Superstars in blue.
...
Shane McMahon simply takes to the microphone and says, "under siege." Angle attempts to retreat, but Shane sends his forces in pursuit of the Olympic Gold Medalist.
...
Just as Angle gets set to announce his men's team, Shane McMahon comes out through the crowd and he's got his crew with him. SmackDown Live is actually invading Monday Night Raw. 
...
Kurt Angle is out to announce Raw's team for the 5-on-5 Elimination match against SmackDown Live at Survivor Series. 
...
...
As the babyfaces hit a number of high spots, Kalisto connects with Salida Del Sol on Amore for the win.

...
Gulak and Dar double team Rich Swann and isolate the former Cruiserweight Champion. Daivari then gets the tag, but he eats a headbutt, giving Swann some respite. Most of the competitors are laid out as Kalisto and Amore become the legal men. After some onesided punishment, Kalisto gets ready to pin Enzo, but the heels make the save. 
...
Kalisto and Daivari start things off, but Nese and Metalik are tagged in almost immediately. The babyfaces, dubbed Team Lucha, gain the upper-hand and throw the heels outside the ring to take control as we cut to commercial. 
...
Well, folks, I think it's safe to say that all of you just switched the channel to ESPN for Monday Night Football. 
...
Enzo Amore, Tony Nese, Drew Gulak, Ariya Daivari & Noam Dar vs. Kalisto, Mustafa Ali, Gran Metalik, Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann
Amore's team, dubbed the Zo Train, all do his signature jig when they make their entrance. Gulak picks up the mic and calls the Smacktalker Skywalker a 'visionary'. He then makes another Aaron Rodgers joke, resulting in another Packers chant from this crowd. 
...
The match then descends into anarchy as all three competitors go back and forth. There is a spot where Fox imitates Bayley and strikes with the Bayley to Belly, sending the Californian out of the ring. Banks takes advantage and locks in the Banks Statement, which has claimed Fox on several occasions. However, Fox manages to scramble and force a head-to-head collision between the Boss and Bayley. Fox then pins the Hugger for the win.

...
When we return from commercial Fox has Banks in a headlock. The Boss fights back and connects with the spinning head scissors. However, an attempt at an aerial manoeuvre is thwarted by Fox who sets up for a superplex. Bayley then manages to take advantage and almost gets a pinfall. Fox then gets annoyed and grabs the bell from the timekeeper. She declares the match to be over, but the referee says nothing doing.

Alicia Fox goes after both women and connects with a Northern Lights Suplex on Bayley for a two count. A double dropkick from Bayley and Banks sends Fox crashing out of the ring. The two former NXT standouts keep Fox at bay as we head to commercial. 
...
Kalisto is backstage with Charly Caruso, and he announces that he will invoke his rematch clause on 205 Live. 
...
...
But he quickly verifies that Mahal isn't worthy of that sort of billing before tearing down the Modern Day Maharaja. Heyman even brings up Lesnar's match with Randy Orton at Summerslam 2016 — the last time the Beast Incarnate faced a SmackDown Live Superstar. This was a tremendous promo, and you should consider going out of your way to watch it. 
...
Paul Heyman picks up the microphone and runs down Jinder Mahal. He calls out the Modern Day Maharaja for barely surviving the challenges of Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton. Heyman then says that he is the master of trash talk, but he usually refrains from doing so because any man worthy of stepping into the ring is worthy of praise.  
...
Brock Lesnar is out next!!! He receives a thunderous ovation from the Green Bay crowd. It's safe to say that this isn't going to end well for Jinder Mahal at Survivor Series. 
...
...
Elias vs. Jason Jordan
Elias is in control of the match; he grabs a chinlock and taunts the former amateur wrestling standout. Jordan manages to hit a Saito Suplex. The former NXT Tag Team Champion then takes control of Elias outside the ring, but the Drifter nails his foe with his guitar, causing the disqualification.

...
When we return from commercial, Elias is in the ring for his usual shtick. He takes a shot at Aaron Rodgers, who is currently nursing a broken collarbone. During the middle of his promo, Elias is interrupted by technical difficulties. He then grabs a microphone from the timekeeper and promises to put a beating on WWE's technician when Jason Jordan makes his way to the ring. 
...
Kurt Angle announced a triple threat match between Sasha Banks, Bayley and Alicia Fox to determine the captain of Raw's Women's team. He then reminds Fox that pinfalls only count inside the ring. 
...
...
Mickie James then interrupts Bliss and lays her out with a Mickie-DT. 
...
Bliss uses her big punch line to imply that MidWestern Americans are slow. Ummm... you're from Columbus. #attentiontodetail
...
Fresh off her victory over Mickie James, Alexa Bliss is out next. She promises to dismantle the cat lady, Natalya, and prove that she's WWE's Goddess. Bliss then admonishes the fans for showering Balor and Styles with affection at TLC before demanding her own chant.  
...
...
Asuka looks for a backslide, but Emma connects with a lariat and takes control of the match. Asuka then hits a dropkick and wins a striking exchange. Emma looks to make a comeback, but the Empress of Tomorrow capitalises on a scramble and picks up the victory with an Asukalock.

...
Asuka vs. Emma
Emma shoves Asuka after a lock up, but the Empress of Tomorrow connects with a volley of stinging kicks and immediately locks in a Fujiwara Armbar. She then flings the Australian Superstar outside, but Asuka gets shoved into the post for her troubles. 
...
...
Shane McMahon then runs into Kurt Angle backstage. They tease trading AJ Styles to Raw before engaging in some healthy banter over Survivor Series. 
...
Wow! Just wow! Why shouldn't a 50-year-old who's never drawn a dime destroy a guy who can become the company's biggest babyface? Makes sense, right?
...
Balor forces Kane outside and hits a topè suicida. However, the Big Red Machine rams the Irishman into the barricade and claims control of the match. He then starts to work on the former NJPW standout's lower back. Balor connects with a dropkick and finds a flurry of strikes. Shotgun dropkick connects, but an attempt at a coup de grace results in a chokeslam. Kane then connects with two more chokeslams to pick up a decisive win.

Kane vs. Finn Balor

After both men size each other up, Kane shoves Balor into a corner and connects with a flurry of rights. The Irishman connects with a dropkick, but Kane hits a powerslam and grabs a chinlock.  
...
Kane then demands competition. He is answered by none other than Finn Balor. If this company has any intelligence left, the Irishman will not count the lights tonight. 
...
Kane proceeds to pick up a microphone and call Braun Strowman a pile of trash. He then says that he threw Strowman into a garbage truck because the Monster Among Men is nothing more than human refuse. Kane then claims to have seen the fear in Strowman's eyes and that he is Raw's only monster.
...
It appears that Brock Lesnar will respond to Jinder Mahal tonight.
...
...
...
After the match, Kane makes his way to the ring and lays out Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles. In what universe is this acceptable booking? Three of the best performers in the company just cannot sell for a mid-card heel, never mind one who's 50-years-old. 
...
Sheamus tries to attack Rollins but runs into the ringpost for his troubles. The Miz also gets sent out of the ring. He and Sheamus eat a double topè-suicida from Ambrose and Rollins. Cesaro then gets nailed with a Phenomenal Forearm from AJ Styles, and that's all she wrote.

When we return from commercial, Ambrose pursues Sheamus with a vengeance and chases him into the crowd. Meanwhile, Styles gets the hot tag from Rollins while Cesaro also gets a tag. Ushi Garoshi for two, but Cesaro gets Styles with a pop-up uppercut after a distraction from Sheamus, but Rollins makes the tag. 
...
Rollins and The Miz get tagged in. The Architect hits a springboard lariat followed by a slingblade. Falcon Arrow connects, but Sheamus breaks up the pin. AJ hits a Pele kick, Cesaro with a huge kick, Ambrose with the Lunatic Lariat and The Miz hits a boot. The A Lister then connects with a snap DDT as we head to commercial. 
...
When we return from commercial, Cesaro has Ambrose in a chinlock. The Lunatic Fringe almost fights out of the predicament when Cesaro tags in Sheamus. The former Tag Team Champions double team Ambrose and even start playing to the crowd. Cesaro then grabs another chinlock. Ambrose manages to connect with a snap suplex, but Cesaro tags Sheamus, who looks to take to the skies. The Lunatic Fringe intercepts the Irishman and nails him with a massive lariat.
