Emanating from the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City, OK, the October 17th episode of WWE Raw is set to feature the return of Brock Lesnar after The Beast Incarnate made his shocking return to the red brand last week. After delivering multiple F5’s to the then-United States Champion, he locked in the Kimura on Lashley’s arm, causing enough damage that Lashley was unable to apply the Hurt Lock in his championship match against Seth Rollins.
Seth Rollins emerged victorious following multiple Stomps to Bobby Lashley, unseating him to become the new United States Champion thanks to the damage inflicted by Brock Lesnar. Now, Rollins is set to go one on one with his longtime foe Matt Riddle in his first title defense. The two last faced off inside the Fight Pit at Extreme Rules, where Riddle secured a tapout victory.
Elsewhere on WWE Raw, Dexter Lumis will face off against The Miz for a chance to officially earn a WWE contract despite having appeared on Monday Night Raw for weeks, even kidnapping The Miz at one point. If Lumis is successful, he’ll officially be added to the WWE roster, but if Miz wins the match, Lumis will be banished from WWE forever. This stipulation was put in place by Road Dogg and the members of DX during last week’s season premiere.
After making their own surprise return to WWE Raw last week to reunite with AJ Styles in his feud with The Judgment Day, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson will take on Chad Gable and Otis of the Alpha Academy.
At long last, Elias is on his way back to WWE Raw after his brother Ezekiel was viciously attacked by Kevin Owens and sent home on a stretcher back in August. Though Elias made one appearance alongside his brother during a backstage segment in June, he has not been a regular part of the WWE roster since July of 2021 when he lost a Symphony of Destruction match to Jaxson Ryker. A vignette in August declared that Elias was “dead,” and the night after WrestleMania 38, his brother Ezekiel came onto the scene and was regularly featured for months.
