Monday Night Raw, another pre-taped evening from Manchester saw a number of developments on the Raw roster, heading to WWE Survivor Series 2019, as the NXT invasion continued. The evening saw Seth Rollins take on a WWE NXT superstar, while the women's tag team titles were put on the line as the Kabuki Warriors took on Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair, while the Bobby Lashley-Lana-Rusev saga continued.
The evening saw Seth Rollins come out for an in-ring promo where he addressed Triple H's words from last week but went on to say that even though NXT started the fight, he and other Raw members would end it. Rollins went on to an open challenge, which was immediately accepted by WWE UK Champion Walter.
The match saw Imperium interfering to help out Walter and Rollins winning by disqualification. A beatdown ensued, but Rollins was saved by The Street Profits and Kevin Owens. This led to a tag team bout where Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and The Street Profits defeated Imperium via pinfall.
The evening also saw Lana saying that she was pregnant with Rusev's child. This led to Rusev coming out amid the news that he is going to be a father and as he tried to make sense of the situation, a heated exchange followed and Lana repeatedly started slapping Rusev. Lashley was soon out and beat down Rusev in the ring. As Lashley and Lana retreated up the ramp, she revealed that it was all a ruse allowing Lashley to beat Rusev.
Here's what else happened on Monday Night Raw:
Women's Tag Team Championship match saw The Kabuki Warriors defeat Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair via pinfall to retain the titles, thanks to a distraction by NXT women's champion Shayna Baszler.

The distraction allowed Asuka to roll Lynch up for the win. Following the match, Bayley attacked Lynch from behind.
