WWE Monday Night Raw comes waltzing back into our lives tonight (Nov. 28, 2022) from the Norfolk Scope Arena in Norfolk, Virginia, featuring all the fallout from the Survivor Series: War Games pay-per-view (PPV) that went down just this past Saturday night in Boston.
Advertised for tonight: Nothing as of roughly 15 hours before showtime (when this initially posts) but we can reasonably expect to learn quite a bit about what’s in store for the future, including who may be coming after Bianca Belair and the Raw women’s championship, what’s next for Austin Theory as United States champion, and a whole lot more!
Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the Raw live blog will kick off once the show starts on USA Network. It will be below this line here. Reminder: GIFs and pics allowed, but no links to illegal streams, please.
WWE RAW RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR NOV. 28
Remove your heart, it’s only good for bleeding, bleeding through your fragile skin. Remove your thought cause it’s only for deceiving, deceiving thoughts destroy within. Disappear like man was never here, while I liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with a recap of the men’s WarGames match from Survivor Series.
Becky Lynch makes her entrance and gets on the mic.
She tells the crowd she’s missed them and proceeds to go gladhand in the crowd. She talks to a dude in an X-Men hoodie named Bobby and says she wouldn’t have her comeback any other way. She tells another dude named Zachary that she’s ready to go through hell, put her body on the line, and jump off cages to take care of business, and there’s a lot of business to be taken care of.
She calls Becky out and says when she saw her come out tonight she thought she’d returned to WWE and felt a little humbled since she’s sitting with all the idiot peasants, but then she went on and on and on... she tells Lynch to shut up and mocks her talk of putting her body on the line.
Bayley wants some of that thunder and kvetches that she’s been putting her body on the line and gets no respect. Becky comes to Bob’s defense, denying that he’s a peasant or that he sucks, and she says people don’t respect Bayley because she keeps losing and she’s a loser.
Lynch thought she ended this at WarGames but she’ll come fight tonight if need be. Bobby tells her to go kick Bayley’s butt and she gets going! Dakota Kai and IYO SKY cut the Man off from behind and they brawl on the steps! Bayley joins the chase and they fight out through a vomitorium and into the concourse!
The brawl continues, knocking over a merch stand as security and referees finally swarm to break things up!
“Michin” Mia Yim vs. Rhea Ripley
Collar and elbow, struggling into the corner, Yim turns her around, Ripley shoves her off, sidestep a boot, big overhead arm drags and Rhea goes to the floor to regroup with Dominik Mysterio. Back inside, pressing the attack, Ripley with kicks and shoulder thrusts, Mia shoves her off, boot to the face, up and into a Tarantula for two!
Double leg, jawing at Mysterio, Rhea from behind, duck a right hand and Michin throws her own right back! Kicks to the ribs from Ripley, choking Yim in the ropes, delayed vertical suplex connects for two! Paintbrusher her, jawing at her, Mia fires up with a series of knees to the face, hamstring kicks, big roundhouses!
Shotgun dropkick sends Rhea into the corner, the match breaks down, Dom gets involved, AJ Styles evens the odds and referee Chad Patton’s had enough...
The match goes to a no-contest.
Post-match, Finn Balor and Damian Priest join the fray, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson right after and the OC stand tall after a brawl!
Styles gets on the mic and says he thought it was over at Survivor Series and he was wrong, but it’s gonna end tonight. Four on four, right here on Monday Night Raw! Referee Eddie Orengo runs down and we got a mixed atomicos!
Everybody brawling, things eventually settle down enough for a bell!
Judgment Day (Damian Priest, Dominik Mysterio, Finn Balor, & Rhea Ripley) vs. the OC (AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, & “Michin” Mia Yim)
Balor and Styles to start, soon the OC are working quick tags in the corner. Judgment Day turn the tide and it’s Gallows getting worked over. Cycling, Priest with a kneeling surfboard on Anderson, knee lifts and clubs, Dominik looking for the Three Amigos!
The match breaks down, Gallows puts Prest into the announce desk, AJ with the moonsault inverted DDT on Finn... RHEA RIPLEY BREAKS IT UP! Styles blocks a kick, Balor gets a schoolboy for two and follows it with a Sling Blade! Tags made, the women finally at it, Yim explodes in a ball of energy, dropkick sets up a flapjack, off the ropes, Penalty Kick and she’s fired up!
Big boot in the corner sets Ripley up for a cannonball! Priest in, Magic Killer averted by Mysterio, he gets laid out, South of Heaven, Styles with the Phenomenal Forearm to Damian! Finn throws him out of the ring but turns around to see mia Yim, scoop and a slam!
She hooks Dominik but Rhea runs in and catches her...
Judgment Day win by pinfall with Riptide from Rhea Ripley on Mia Yim.
We get footage from earlier of the Street Profits being interviewed as they arrive at the building.
Montez Ford says it feels as good to be back as Byron Saxton looks, and he runs down all the things that have changed since they were on TV last when Alpha Academy rolls up.
Chad Gable shushes them and says he’s been here working, quietly making himself the best part of the Monday Night Raw. He says he’s asked for a match and they bicker.
The Bloodline make their entrance, here comprising Solo Sikoa, the Usos, and Sami Zayn.
They get on the mic and Jey Uso says they went to war WarGames and he thinks he broke his hand for real but you see who’s standing tall. Jimmy says for the first time ever, there are no cracks in the Bloodline, but Kevin Owens is a little bit mad back there, because Sami isn’t his dog, he’s their dog!
Sami has a serious moment with Jey, talking about how they haven’t seen eye-to-eye but how the way they embraced at the end of the match was Ucey. From here on out, any Bloodline business they have to handle, Zayn says they’re on the same page. He offers a hand and Uso smiles it off for a second before shaking it and embrace Sami!
Zayn calls Jimmy into the hug and he joins enthusiastically! They all turn to stoic Solo, but before he can give in and hug—
Enter Kevin Owens.
Sami warns him off from trying to fight but Kev says that’s not why he’s here at all. He’s just here to tell Zayn that he totally gets it. He totally understands why he chose to do what he did on Saturday, because how many times through their careers has he done the exact same thing to him?
He’s not mad, he can’t blame him for it one bit, and he’s not here to fight. It’s actually quite the opposite— since Saturday he can’t help but think that for 20 years now their careers have been linked, but after Saturday he doesn’t wanna fight, team, or ride to shows together, he doesn’t want anything to do with Zayn.
Sam says that’s fine and he feels exactly the same way, because he doesn’t need Owens anymore, because he has family now. KO says he’s genuinely happy for him, because finally everyone in the WWE Universe can see just how great Sami Zayn is, and to see him get the recognition he deserves? He loves it.
But it doesn’t matter how many times they tell him he’s in the Bloodline or he calls them family, just remember this— he’s not their real blood and he never will be. Jey steps up and tells Sami not to worry, he’s got this. Kev’s just mad because he doesn’t have any family around him.
But check this out, if you’ve got a problem with Sami Zayn, you’ve got a problem with “Main Event” Jey Uso. Kev says he might be done with Sam Uso, but he’s not done with Jey, and he’ll kick his ass later tonight.
We see Candice LeRae walking backstage when she runs into an interview.
She says she hasn’t been on Raw very long but Damage CTRL attacked her and injured her and she doesn’t know why, so she reintroduces herself as the woman who is going to take Dakota Kai out tonight.
We get entrances for our next match and finally, mercifully go to break.
Back from commercial, Matt Riddle and Elias are interviewed backstage.
Matt says it feels like they’ve been teaming for years and Chris Farleys all over their match from last week. Elias says he sees himself more as a solo artist but has to admit that they’re a pretty good duo. Riddle talks about challenging for the tag titles, Elias is clearly intrigued—
The Usos roll up to call them 2s.
Elias tells them to put the tag titles on the line and Jey says any time, any place.

We get a recap of Austin Theory winning the United States Championship last week.
He’s shown walking backstage to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Austin Theory makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He asks who looks stupid now and says he doesn’t want to be called a kid now that he’s beaten Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins at the same damn time and become a two-time United States Championship. He says everybody’s jealous and wants to be him.
Enter Seth Rollins.
Theory asks him what happens when the future makes you look like that past, and Rollins congratulates him and calls him kid and says if he wants to fight he’s happy to do it right here, right now. Austin says it’ll happen on his time and storms off.
We get a recap of Miz business and we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Miz runs into an interview and refuses to answer questions.
He admits he’s holding the bag of money but claims he reinjured his hand and competing would go against any medical professional’s advice.
Adam Pearce rolls up to tell him he’s fighting tonight and he taped up the wrong hand. No matter what Miz says, he’s having the match, tonight. He gives in and says Dexter’s hopes of becoming a WWE Superstar will be over and Pearce will be hearing from his lawyer.
Dexter Lumis vs. the Miz (Anything Goes Match)
Miz trying to win it early with a DDT before the bell but Dexter is unmoved and inexorable and they fight to the floor! Fighting on the table, Lumis throws the A-Lister off of it and into the barricade and we go to break!

Dexter up on the barricade, elbow drop through the table! Taking the A-Lister back to the ring, Miz pulls a turnbuckle pad off and fights out of the arm triangle! Skull-Crushing Finale blocked, he sidesteps Lumis right into the exposed steel, folding press with his feet on the ropes... NOT ENOUGH!
Dexter kips up, Rock Bottom into the arm triangle... it’s over!
Dexter Lumis wins by submission with the Silencer, earning himself a WWE contract.
Post-match, Lumis signs the contract and Adam Pearce gives him his bag of money! Dexter walks along the front row and hands money out from the bag until Miz recovers and blindsides him! He takes the bag of money back and yoinks a bill right out of some kid’s hand!
Johnny Gargano runs down and lays him out with a superkick! Gargano takes the money and returns it to the kid and shares a thumbs-up with Dexter!
Dakota Kai makes her entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a video package recap of WarGames.
Asuka, Alexa Bliss, and Bianca Belair are interviewed backstage.
Bianca says they’ve been better physically but mentally it’s all good and she’s just glad it’s all over now. Damage CTRL thought they could take out Becky Lynch and take this division over, well she’s held the division down and all of Damage CTRL’s plans have backfired.
Asuka enthusiastically chimes in but Alexa is distracted and halfhearted.
Kevin Owens makes his entrance and we go to break.
