With some fantastic matches and segments, the last RAW before Crown Jewel was an extraordinary show. Similar to last week, several underutilized Superstars received TV time, and were able to continue their momentum.
Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair, whose teams will clash at Crown Jewel, were present on the Red brand, as their team members, Ricochet and Drew McIntyre, faced each other before getting interrupted by none other than Randy Orton. Paige returned after a long hiatus, but was humiliated by Asuka, who spit green mist onto her face. Asuka's tag team partner, Kairi Sane, lost to Becky Lynch in a non-title bout.
The Falls Count Anywhere Match between Seth Rollins and Erick Rowan was one of the best of the night, but the Universal Champion stood victorious before his Crown Jewel clash against The Fiend. Charlotte Flair found a new partner in Natalya, beating The IIconics in a tag team match on RAW. Despite losing to AJ Styles, Humberto Carrillo showed his talent, delivering a spectacular performance against the reigning United States Champion.
It was a stellar show, but WWE dropped some serious hints along the way that many fans may have missed. Here we discuss three things WWE hinted at on RAW this week.
#3 Charlotte Flair will target the Women's Tag Team Titles soon
Charlotte Flair recently swapped brands, moving back to the Red brand after a two year gap. 'The Queen' was picked in the very first round, and the ten-time Women's Champion was certainly one of the most notable Superstars to switch brands in the draft. It will be interesting to see who starts a new feud with 'The Queen,' but WWE certainly dropped a hint on the Red brand this week.
Charlotte, who was a heel before leaving SmackDown, teamed up with the babyface Natalya this week, leading to the possibility of a face turn. The team of Charlotte and Natalya faced the former Women's Tag Team Champions The IIconics. Charlotte gelled well with 'The Queen of Harts,' and helped her team pick up an impressive victory.
Charlotte has won everything in the Women's Division, except for the Women's Tag Team Titles. 'The Queen' could become a Grand Slam Champion, if she wins the Women's Tag Team Titles, a feat that has already been accomplished by Bayley and Alexa Bliss. The team of Natalya and Charlotte could also help to elevate the stature of the Women's Tag Team Division.
