With 10 matches and just enough promo, there’s was plenty to think about after this week’s Monday Night RAW. From another United States Open Challenge to more dominance from Braun Strowman, there was a ton of in-ring action this week- even if it was heavy on filler.
Check out this week’s RAW Power Rankings to see who got some much-needed wins with Hell in a Cell less than two weeks away.
Honorable Mention: Nikki Bella: Say what you want about the Divas Revolution and Bella’s place in WWE history, but she continues to win and beat the best in the division, away from Charlotte. Can Team Bella get back to the top of the division? Or has their time as Queens of the WWE Mountain come to an end?
5: John Cena: The Franchise continues to have great matches every week on RAW against some of the best and brightest of the promotion. Bringing the United States title the most credibility and prestige in years, Cena’s role as the mid-card champion has been great for RAW. While it hasn’t done much in terms of getting other people over, it has kept Cena pertinent and kept him just a hop, skip and jump away from getting back in the WWE World Heavyweight title picture.
4: The Dudley Boys: There’s not a team in the WWE with the street cred of the Dudley Boys and no team connects with the fans as much. With another dominating win, this week over The Ascension, Team 3D is in a league of their own away from The New Day’s recent rush of momentum. With another shot at the titles at Hell in a Cell, expect the Dudley’s to reclaim their titles.
3: The New Day: Just a week after they destroyed john Cena, Dolph Ziggler and The Dudley Boys to end RAW, The New Day opened up RAW and got the typical heel win over Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose. The best of a weak batch of tag teams, they have plenty of potential but need a clean win over the Dudley Boys at Hell in a Cell to put themselves over with fans. Can they do it?
2: Kevin Owens: His quick win over Kalisto wasn’t entertaining, but the thought of Owens being a dominant Intercontinental Champion and someone just a push away from being in the WWE World Heavyweight title mix, is a reality. Owens has arrived.
1: Seth Rollins: Don’t let Kane’s win over Rollins this week on RAW get you down. Despite the fact that Rollins has been at the mercy of “The Demon” Kane, Rollins, who has a penchant for winning matches when he has to, will come up big and put Kane to rest, once and for all.
