Raw results: Nov. 20, 2023
Drew McIntyre explained why he cost Jey Uso and Cody Rhodes the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles. McIntyre will join forces with The Judgment Day for the WarGames Match. Their Survivor Series opponents were forced to find a fifth member.
Nia Jax def. Raquel Rodriguez
Battling through a back injury in the final moments of a highly-personal clash of titans, Raquel Rodriguez picked up Nia Jax from on the ropes and attempted to carry her out of the corner. Before she could, however, her back and legs gave out, and she collapsed. As she did, The Irresistible Force crashed down on her before hitting her opponent with the Annihilator off the ropes for the victory.
Becky Lynch def. Xia Li
When Xia Li knocked Becky Lynch out of the ring with a spinning kick that she has used to conquer numerous opponents, The Man fought through it. Li followed her out of the ring. When she attempted another spinning kick, however, The Man dodged the strike and hurled her opponent into the ring post. Back in the ring, Lynch hit her opponent with the Manhandle Slam for the three-count.
After the match, Damage CTRL emerged from the crowd and incited a pre-WarGames brawl with Lynch, Charlottle Flair, Bianca Belair and Shotzi.
Johnny Gargano def. Ludwig Kaiser
Out to prove his worth to Intercontinental Champion Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser told Giovanni Vinci to stay out his match against #DIY’s Johnny Gargano. Nevertheless, Vinci came to ringside, presumably in an attempt to help "The Essense of Excellence" steal the victory. This caused Kaiser to become distracted, and Johnny Wrestling quickly hit a One Final Beat DDT for the win.
Tegan Nox and Natalya became the WWE Women’s Tag Team Title No. 1 Contenders
In the final moments of a high-stakes Fatal 4-Way Match, Maxxine Dupri secured a dominant advantage over Tegan Nox, thanks to the training of Chad Gable. When Maxxine attempted a high crossbody, however, Nox rolled through and picked up the quick pin to secure a future match against WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Piper Niven & Chelsea Green.
Intercontinental Champion Gunther taunted The Miz. The A-Lister hit a low blow to gain the advantage and took him down with a Skull-Crushing Finale.
Shinsuke Nakamura def. Chad Gable
When Chad Gable slowed up to avoid an exposed turnbuckle, Shinsuke Nakamura took advantage and grabbed the quick pinfall.
Drew McIntyre def. Jey Uso to gain the WarGames Advantage
In a crucial showdown to determine the advantage in the WarGames Match, Drew McIntyre hit a Future Shock DDT to defeat Jey Uso.
Seconds after McIntyre secured the victory, a post-match attack on Uso by The Scottish Superstar and Judgment Day was answered with a brutal chair assault by Cody Rhodes, Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Sami Zayn.
As his team stood tall in the ring, Rhodes revealed that Randy Orton will return to WWE to compete in the WarGames Match alongside The American Nightmare, Rollins, Zayn, and Uso!
