Becky Lynch & Damage CTRL Showdown; Alexa Bliss Acting Weird?

The Monday Night Raw following Survivor Series WarGames began with The Man Becky Lynch, the winner of the WarGames Match for Team Bianca.

Lynch entered the crowd and began including people there in her promo after embracing the WWE Universe, reiterating her status as the man of the people. Following this, Bayley approached her shortly thereafter. Lynch continued to be in the crowd as Bayley and The Man began to argue, involving the spectators.

This continues until Lynch is attacked by the remaining members of Damage CTRL (IYO SKY and Dakota Kai). The three-on-one fight intensifies as Bayley joins it up to the merchandise booth before being broken up by police.

Immediately following this, a brief video of Rhea Ripley is played before she confronts “Michin” Mia Yim. Until Judgment Day and The OC intervened, the two opponents who had just 48 hours ago competed in WarGames were putting on a stellar match, which resulted in a draw. This then evolved into the highly anticipated four-on-four tag team match between the two factions.

This match was received similarly to Yim vs. Ripley, with the women even briefly interacting with the men without acknowledging mixed tag team rules. As expected, the outcome would come down to Yim and Ripley, with Ripley claiming victory for Judgment Day over Riptide. Yim had previously bodyslammed Finn Balor before targeting Dominik Mysterio.

A short while later, a video about Candice LeRae was played, detailing how Damage CTRL had eliminated her a month earlier. She returned and was seen walking down a backstage hallway. Because she had a match with Dakota Kai later that evening, she was stopped for an interview during which she specifically mentioned Dakota Kai. We saw Nikki Cross peek out to look at LeRae as she was walking down the hallway, and she was hiding.

As previously mentioned, LeRae and Kai face off later that evening. Ample time was allotted to the match, and both women performed admirably. LeRae quickly began the match by attacking Kai as she made her entrance. Bayley and SKY attempted to enter the ring to assist, but they were sent backstage, leaving no one at ringside. Kai’s scorpion kick and other moves didn’t help her win. LeRae used a neck breaker from the top rope to defeat one-half of the Women’s Tag Team Champions.

Finally, three WarGames women we hadn’t seen were Asuka, Alexa Bliss, and Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. Commentary stated that the three women were ineligible due to the WarGames match. In addition, they stated that Bayley and SKY were not authorized to compete on Raw despite their involvement in the altercation earlier in the evening. During the fight, SKY wore a neck brace.

In a backstage interview, Asuka, Bliss, and Belair discussed WarGames and Becky Lynch’s victory. Since SummerSlam, according to Belair, every Damage CTRL plan has failed. She would also state that she is pleased to put the past behind her. The Wyatt 6 symbol flashed on the screen behind them before they could finish their sentences. During the interview, Bliss was uninterested and disengaged. Cathy Kelley queried Bliss for further comments after Asuka finished speaking. Bliss awoke from her apparent slumber during the interview and stated that she agreed with Belair.
