A few individuals made their return to Raw last night along with Stephanie McMahon.
Samoa Joe appeared after two months on the sidelines due to a knee injury. Joe suffered the injury during a non-televised live event in his match against John Cena in Jonesboro, Arkansas at the end of August. He underwent two minor surgeries, to fix his knee and nose, and is now ready to resume his full-time schedule with WWE. He wrestled Apollo Crews on the show and won the match.
Bo Dallas, who was the original cause of the virus outbreak in the locker room, also returned after he was cleared by WWE doctors. His brother Bray unfortunately wasn’t. Bray’s girlfriend and Raw ring announcer JoJo also returned after she was kept away as a precaution.
Nia Jax, who was rumored to have decided to not show up for work for being unhappy with how she’s being handled on television, defeated Bayley in her first match in several weeks and booked her place at the Survivor Series on the Raw women’s team. Two weeks ago, Alexa Bliss said that Jax was just resting after requesting some time off and she would be back sooner rather than later.
And finally, Braun Strowman, who we last saw at the TLC pay-per-view being crushed inside a garbage truck, came out from a similar garbage truck and went after The Miz and his Miztourage in the segment that closed Raw. Strowman beat the holy hell out of The Miz, first shaking the whole Raw set by throwing The Miz through the video wall and then threw Miz, Dallas, and Axel like bowling balls from the top of the stage down the ramp. As The Miz and Bo Dallas escaped, Curtis Axel suffered multiple running powerslams by Strowman as the crowd kept chanting “one more time.” Eventually that chant turned into “table, table” and Strowman drove Axel through the Raw commentary table to end the show. You can see the final segment of Raw below.
