5 botches, slip-ups, and outrageous moments from WWE Raw - October 16, 2017
This coming Sunday, The Miz and four other competitors will challenge a reunited Shield in a TLC match at the eponymous show. Last night's Raw served as the go-home show, offering a huge surprise return in the main event.
Kane is now back and for some reason that's yet to be explained, he's ready to throw down against Roman Reigns and friends. Perhaps he still harbours anger from all of those six-man tags he was put in against them during his Team Hell No days? Or maybe he was just bored doing politician stuff and crawled under a random ring? WWE should probably explain his involvement better.
Besides Kane's outrageous return, other fun moments from this episode that are about to be nitpicked include Kalisto forgetting that he's the current Cruiserweight Champion, a possibly botched Dragon Ball Z reference from Corey Graves, and a smear of blood across the face of Sasha Banks. The Boss is up first, so let's dive right in.
#5 Bloodied Banks
After Sasha Banks exited the ring from her match against Alicia Fox, blood was evident on the side of her face. Well, she doesn't exactly have a reputation for being a bruiser but if she makes a habit of giving her opponents a bloodbath like this, she might be tougher than many give her credit for.
The most likely reason for the bloodletting was a stiff elbow strike from Fox midway through the match. This didn't stop The Boss, who later won the bout via submission after reversing a tilt-a-whirl into her Banks Statement.
In the backstage afterwards, Alicia jumped at Sasha from behind. She shoved down a referee and got fined for her behaviour in the process. These two will meet on the pre-show of Sunday's pay-per-view.
