NXT’s invasion of the main roster ahead of Survivor Series continued last night as they showed up on Monday Night Raw to brawl with the red brands Superstars. The Undisputed Era emerged from the crowd after Triple H made an offer to Seth Rollins: Rebuild yourself and return to your home, NXT.  

A fight then ensued between Raw and NXT Superstars, with the Undisputed Era leading the charge against guys such as The O.C, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins and R-Truth. The Raw Superstars drove away the NXT guys, providing an early victory for Team Raw.  

Rollins told his former mentor that he would only return to Wednesday nights if he could do so as ‘the top guy’ and proceeded to challenge NXT Champion Adam Cole to a match for his title in the main event.  

Another NXT Champion made an appearance last night as well: Women’s Champion Shayna Blaszer. This came after the announcement was made that Blaszer would compete in a Triple Threat Match against Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley at Survivor Series.  

The Queen of Spades proclaimed in an interview that “I’m not Ronda Rousey” and that she would do what her best friend could never do and pin The Man at Survivor Series. But Lynch remained unmoved by the declaration and the interview concluded with a stare out between two of the baddest women on the planet.    

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar kept his promise and came for Rey Mysterio on Raw last night, but the Ultimate Underdog was nowhere to be found. The Beast proceeded to F5 commentator Dio Maddin through the announcement table before Mysterio attacked Lesnar with a led pipe.  

Mysterio laid out Lesnar with his own WWE Title Belt and challenged Lesnar at Survivor Series to earn retribution for all he has done to Mysterio’s family in recent weeks, but not only that, for the WWE Championship.  

The main event of the show saw Cole defend his NXT Championship against Rollins in a dream matchup. But the match wouldn’t end the way fans had hoped it would, The Undisputed Era made their presence known, interfering with the match and handing Rollins the win via disqualification.  

But Raw would once again fight back and sent out an array of Superstars, only to be met with even more NXT faces such as Keith Lee, Pete Dunne, Matt Riddle and Tommaso Ciampa. The war ensued but it was Ricochet who would have the final word, hitting a wonderous springboard shooting star press onto the crowd of Superstars outside the ring.
