5 botches, slip-ups, and outrageous moments from WWE Raw - October 23, 2017
It's only been one day since TLC concluded and WWE is already gearing up for their next big event. The historic Survivor Series is about a month away and Shane McMahon personally led a horde of troops onto Kurt Angle's territory for the sake of striking first. To state that the attack was surprising would be a huge understatement.
In this article, some of the storyline botches that were glaringly left unaddressed will be pointed out, especially from that closing segment. Along with the nonsensicality of that very fun main event inter-brand war, poor Jason Jordan suffered a brutal guitar attack that caused noticeable damage, Rich Swann performed a big dive that completely missed his mark, and the craziest performer in all of WWE stole her opponent's finisher to help earn her a spot as a team captain.
Leading off the most botchy and outrageous moments of the show was Kurt Angle's very unusual pronunciation of WWE Champion Jinder Mahal's name.
#5 Jinder Ma-who?
Kurt Angle deserves all of the credit in the world. After an 11-year absence from a WWE ring, he stepped back into action as a last-minute substitute for a sick Roman Reigns inside a very violent TLC environment. He even took a running powerslam from Braun Strowman through a table only to return to action later in the match to score the winning fall.
Despite all the praise that the Olympic hero deserves from the past few days, he doesn't get a pass for his botched pronunciation of the name of SmackDown Live's top title holder. He somehow transformed the last syllable in Jinder Mahal's name to sound more like "Hell".
To his credit, he did later call out Alicia Fox backstage for trying to pin Sasha Banks outside of the ring at TLC. Perhaps he read about that silly spot here?
