WWE Raw: 5 Shockers & Surprises from this week’s episode (May 27, 2019)
After the successful launch of the All Elite Wrestling (AEW), and their first event a couple of days ago, creative must have been working double time to ensure that they come up with an A-grade episode of Raw and please both the fans and Vince McMahon.
While that must have been the case, they weren't entirely successful as they delivered some stale and really long segments which could have been done away with.
Along with that, there were some extremely surprising moves such as Sami Zayn’s electric chair segment, and The Beast refusing to announce who he will cash in his contract against which made things a bit unexpected on the show.
In this article, we will look at the 5 most shocking and surprising moments from this week’s episode of Raw.
#5 #Heel returns
Raw opened to a lot of hopes as fans wanted to know against whom Brock Lesnar would cash in his Money in the Bank. Creative did not waste too much time as the first person to make his way to the ring last night was the WWE Champion Kofi Kingston.
While Kofi made his case, Seth Rollins answered the challenge instead. Both made their case until The Beast Incarnate came out. He seemed to care less about both men and made a mockery out of them.
Just when we thought the segment was over, Dolph Ziggler surprisingly attacked the WWE champion from behind and tried to lay him out again only for Xavier Woods to make the save.
After what happened on Tuesday last week, it was an unexpected move to yet again showing that Ziggler was coming for the WWE Championship while Seth Rollins’ Universal Championship was wide open.
The #Heel came back out to talk down Kofi, stating his respect for the champion but also his need to take the title away.
