This week on WWE TV… :-: talkSPORT

A big red return, a monster challenge and a go-home show dominated this week’s WWE TV. Here’s all that went down across Raw, SmackDown and NXT.

From next week we’re freshening up our output on WWE’s shows here on talkSPORT. Instead of straight-up recaps of Raw and SmackDown, on Tuesday you’ll see the debut of Rants, Raves and Results as we countdown the best and worst of the company’s two main broadcasts and NXT from the WWE Network.

To fill in the gap before next week’s unveiling, here’s a look back at what has happened across the three brands this week….


From the Moda Center in Portland

The Shield cemented their reunion this past Monday Night with a vintage style entrance and attire top open this week’s Raw. Yet it wasn’t completely their night thanks to the shocking return of Kane during the evening’s steel cage main event. Appearing from under the ring at the culmination of Roman Reigns battle with Braun Strowman, The Big Red Machine attacked Reigns with a Chokeslam and inserted himself into TLC’s main event this Sunday night. The Hounds of Justice will now have to overcome a five on three TLC handicap that will see Kane team with The Miz, Sheamus and Cesaro and Braun Strowman to face the reunited Reigns, Rollins and Ambrose.

Elsewhere it was confirmed that at TLC we’ll see the somewhat unique battle between Finn Bálor as The Demon, taking on Bray Wyatt as Sister Abigail. Enzo Amore rounded-up some cruiserweight friends to confront champion Kalisto ahead of their rematch on Sunday, and Mickie James scored a pinfall over Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss during their tag-team encounter.

From the Key Arena in Seattle

Fresh from victory over Shinsuke Nakamura at Hell in a Cell, Jinder Mahal returned to SmackDown to lay down his biggest challenge yet. Accusing the SmackDown locker-room of having no worthy opponent left to face, the WWE Champion challenged Raw’s Universal Champion Brock Lesnar to a match at Survivor Series. This didn’t settle well with one man in the back as AJ Styles took it upon himself to make his own WWE Title challenge to the Modern Day Maharaja.

Elsewhere Sami Zayn ruffled the feathers of SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan with an excellent opening promo discussing his recent alliance with old friend Kevin Owens. It led to the nights main event as Owens and Zayn defeated the team of Shinsuke Nakamura and Randy Orton. Dolph Ziggler evened his score with Bobby Roode thanks to a roll of the rights and Charlotte Flair, Naomi and Becky picked up a win over Natalya, Lana and Tamina.

From Full Sail University

The Authors of Pain made their return to NXT last night, the first time we’ve seen the former Tag Team Champions since August’s TakeOver show in Brooklyn. Akem and Rezar interrupted the night’s main event to seek revenge on SAnitY, just as the trio was about to see off The Undisputed Era in an entertaining six-man tag match.

Elsewhere Ember Moon booked her place in the Women’s Fatal-4-Way match at NXT TakeOver for the vacated NXT Women’s Title, beating Sonya Deville and Ruby Riot. Plus there were wins for Aleister Black – despite some distraction from the Velveteen Dream – and Kassius Ohno.
