Monday Night Raw results: Nov. 16, 2020
Asuka, Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke def. Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler & Lana – Six-Woman Tag Team Match
After weeks of ridicule, Lana stepped up and requested the chance to put her skills on display ahead of Survivor Series. The match drove a wedge even further into the chemistry of Team Raw as the Women’s Tag Team Champions refused to tag in Lana and targeted fellow Team Raw members Mandy Rose & Dana Brooke. Baszler & Jax recklessly attacked their teammates, as both Rose & Brooke left with injuries. The final punishment was reserved for Lana after she tapped out from an Asuka Lock to lose the match. Jax kept her infamous streak alive with another Samoan Drop of Lana through the announce table for a final exclamation point before Survivor Series.
The New Day def. The Hurt Business’ Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin – Raw Tag Team Title Match
The Hurt Business have set their sights on a golden takeover of the red brand, but The New Day have no intentions of agreeing to that offer. Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods had a message for the “Jerk Business” before that match, but Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin had the first word in the ring with a string of near pin-falls. The Raw Tag Team Champions persevered through The Hurt Business’ hostile takeover attempt, as Kingston overcame an Angle Slam and Brainbuster to set up Woods for the win. With the win, The New Day kept their showdown with The Street Profits at Survivor Series intact, but what will the Raw Tag Team Champions have left in the tank?
RETRIBUTION def. Keith Lee, Riddle, Braun Strowman & Sheamus – Eight-Man Tag Team Match
Team Raw put their explosive partnership to the test in a massive Eight-Man Tag Team Match against RETRIBUTION. As the team’s self-proclaimed captain, Styles tried to focus Team Raw on a common enemy, but it was RETRIBUTION who found their desired target first. T-BAR, MACE & SLAPJACK all took their turns attacking Riddle inside the ring, while Sheamus and Braun Strowman nearly brawled outside it. Just as Team Raw seemed headed for a breakthrough, an argument broke up between all four competitors and Mustafa Ali swooped in to pick up the pieces to claim a win for RETRIBUTION.
Bray Wyatt def. The Miz
The Miz pleaded for Bray Wyatt to rethink their match, but The A-Lister should have known there is no reasoning with “The Firefly Funhouse” host. Wyatt wore a sadistic smile early on, as he absorbed attacks from The Miz before going on the offensive. As John Morrison tried to help out his teammate, Alexa Bliss came flying into the picture to knock him over the barricade. Wyatt would turn back to the ring and smash The Miz with a Sister Abigail to claim the win.
Drew McIntyre def. Randy Orton – WWE Championship Match
Drew McIntyre had consumed with his quest to reclaim the WWE Championship since his loss to Randy Orton at WWE Hell in a Cell. The Scottish Sword brought his sword to a fistfight, and The Viper was caught off guard early on. As Orton seemed content to take a count-out loss to retain his title, Adam Pearce declared the match would continue with no disqualifications.
After a grueling back-and-forth, McIntyre’s smash of The Legend Killer through a table appeared to shifty the dynamic of the match. Orton would dodge three separate Claymore Kick attempts, but the final one wouldn’t miss as McIntyre connected to reclaim the WWE Title and set a clash with Roman Reigns for Survivor Series.
