5 takeaways from this week's Monday Night Raw
WWE delivered a solid go-home show for the upcoming WWE TLC PPV, hitting all the right notes before the big event. The matches in the PPV were given the final touches, and the Superstars involved were given the time to make their intentions clear.
The PPV is going to be a hard-hitting one and the main-event promises to be one for the ages. The final episode saw a massive return of Kane, who was last seen on Smackdown Live last year.
The main event of the PPV also went through some drastic changes, with a 3-on-4 matchup changing to a 3-on-5 encounter. We look at the five biggest takeaways from this episode of Monday Night Raw.
#5 Mickie James has still got it!
Mickie James returned to WWE in February this year, aligning herself with Alexa Bliss and helping her defeat Becky Lynch. James was sidelined since then, working minor feuds and multi-women matches. She worked against Asuka last year in NXT and received rave reviews, proving her worthiness in the ring.
James is one of the most decorated women's wrestlers of all time, having won the championship six times. She was given a title opportunity against Alexa Bliss at TLC and the build-up to the match hasn't disappointed.
She was termed as "An Old Lady" by Alexa, but she has proven otherwise, pinning Alexa in the tag-team match in today's episode of RAW. Mickie James may be 37, but she still has some of the best skills in the women's division right now.
