5 botches and outrageous moments from WWE Raw (November 27, 2017)
Watch as Rich Swann gave a knee directly to Tozawa's face!
You deserve it. It's not every day that a modern WWE arena chants those words for Roman Reigns, but Knoxville, TN seemed like an atypical wrestling town. They were treated to several significant moments, including a pretty good outing between Cesaro and Seth Rollins, the apparent re-breaking of Matt Hardy, and the naming of that new Paige-led stable. It helped because it reminds us of a song and album by Muse because Absolution is a pretty cool group title.
Despite the highs from this night, there were the expected lows as well. Botches and outrageous moments from this Raw include a funny exchange from the commentary team about the true location of the throat, a dangerous knee to the face of Akira Tozawa, and a collision between Apollo Crews and a cameraman. The Titus Worldwide member kicks off this week's list, so let's quickly get to it.
#5 Crews bonks the camera
Big Titus had a decent showing against "The Samoan Submission Machine" in the short amount of time that they had, but there was just no way that Joe was losing here. Apollo Crews had to watch as his buddy Titus O'Neil tapped out to Samoa Joe's devastating Coquina Clutch, an outcome he didn't like one bit. He was expectedly frustrated and turned hastily in his exasperation.
Crews collided directly with the live camera. To his credit, he did no-sell the bump. However, he foolishly tried to step up to Joe after this and got choked out as well for his effort. Considering Joe later blindsided Roman Reigns and choked him out too, he was on a roll for submitting fools on this night.
