In an electrifying episode of WWE RAW on October 23, 2023, viewers were kept on the edge of their seats by riveting match results and unexpected announcements. The show, held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX, kick-started with New Day’s Xavier Woods& Kofi Kingston’s triumphant win against Alpha Academy’s Otis & Chad Gable.
Notably, the show also saw the strategic defense of Women’s Championship by Becky Lynch, who defeated Indi Hartwell. Also, Johnny Gargano took down Giovanni Vinci, and Chelsea Green& Piper Niven overpowered Natayla& Nikki Cross. Besides, Drew McIntyre showcased his dominance by besting Sami Zayn, and Bronson Reed reigned over Akira Tozawa.
However, the show’s climax came with Damian Priest’s victorious match against Jey Uso, which set the stage for the Crown Jewel 2023. Priest’s victory led to a thrilling promo segment where Cody Rhodes and Damian Priest exchanged words, resulting in the announcement of their face-off at Crown Jewel 2023 on November 4th, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Rhodes quickly accepted and suggested they give a preview of their match in the current RAW show. Soon after, a mass brawl erupted involving Rhodes, Priest, and other notorious wrestlers like Finn Balor, Jey Uso, Rhea Ripley, Dominik Mysterio, and JD McDonagh.
Adding to the dramatic turn of events, Priest went on to attack Rhodes, leading to his injury. Consequently, this will further intensify their match at Crown Jewel, officially confirmed by RAW commentator Michael Cole.
