WWE Raw video highlights: Season premiere


Raw's "season premiere" took place last night and featured a new set, a new show open, and the return of pyro.

It was also supposed to feature Seth Rollins defending the Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio, but that was changed after an angle where Brock Lesnar destroyed Mysterio and his son Dominick.

Rollins vs. Rusev instead ended up being the main event. Bobby Lashley and Lana both returned to WWE television, making out as Rusev had to watch on. The Fiend then attacked Rollins ahead of their match at Hell in a Cell.

Two other title matches took place last night, with AJ Styles defending his United States Championship against Cedric Alexander and Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode defending their Raw Tag Team titles against Heavy Machinery. WWE continued building to Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks at Hell in a Cell. Plus, it was announced that Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will coach teams for a five-on-five tag match at Crown Jewel.
