3 Botches You Probably Missed This Week On Raw (January 7th, 2018)
It was finally the first live episode of Monday Night Raw in 2019 but whilst there were a number of interesting segments on the show, which included the return of John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Hulk Hogan, there were also a number of awkward moments throughout the show which included a number of slip-ups on commentary as well as Nia Jax once again botching in her match with Sasha Banks.
Botches are something that WWE can cover up when the show is pre-recorded, since it can then be edited out, but now that Monday Night Raw is back to being live once again, the botches were clear for the WWE Universe to see and here are just a few of them from last night's show.
#3 Baron Corbin's balance
Baron Corbin lost his job as General Manager Elect on Monday Night Raw back at TLC and has since been locked in a feud with Elias, something that continued this week on Raw. Elias was in the ring when Corbin came out to point out that the crowd didn't want to hear about his accomplishments or his music and the two men then faced off.
Whilst the match was eventually won by Baron Corbin via End of Days, mid-way through the match there was an awkward spot where Elias picked up Corbin and he looked to escape down his back but was unable to remain on his feet. Luckily, Corbin was able to jump up and continue the spot so that the match wasn't spoiled by the botch, but it was definitely noticeable.
This win now means that the issues between Corbin and Elias are expected to continue into The Royal Rumble pay-per-view in a few weeks time.
