Welcome back to the always electrifying world of WWE Wrestling, where the excitement never stops and the action never slows down. Just a few days away from Fastlane premium live event, we’re unpacking everything that happened on Raw on October 2, aired from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
Raw was charged up tonight with a diverse lineup of showdowns, smack talks, and surprise twists. The spotlight was agent Gunther and Tommaso Ciampa’s anticipated Intercontinental Championship clash. It was an evening of fiery wrestling drama with bouts both expected and surprising, all in the lead-up to the upcoming Fastlane premium live event this Saturday.
Drew McIntyre, our beloved savior, made clear his intentions before Fastlane. He’s weary of being the hero and made a solemn vow to concentrate on his fights, promising a heavy serving of punches to Miz, who’s been poking his head into Drew’s business. Following his emotional address, The A-lister tried to spin a tale, presenting himself in a favorable light. However, Drew would have none of it, demanding a brawl right then, and took Miz down with the microphone. After a feisty faceoff and several attempts to de-escalate the situation, the fight resumed post-commercial break, with Drew picking up an impressive win using his Future Shock DDT.
As if the tension couldn’t possibly ramp up any more, the contract signing of Gunther and WWE Intercontinental Champion Tommaso Ciampa rose to the occasion. Ciampa successfully fueled the feud with his heartfelt speech about the title’s importance. In an unexpected turn of events, the bout was rescheduled to the same night, setting the stage for a dramatic showdown. Following a brutal standoff, Ciampa’s attempts fall short as Gunther emerged victorious, retaining his Intercontinental Championship.
Elsewhere in the ring, Rhea Ripley’s return to Raw stirred things up with the Judgment Day, causing a cascade of blame game.
In the women’s division, Becky Lynch and Tegan Nox’s title match was sadly postponed due to Lynch’s medical clearance. This lit up a small feud between Nox and Chelsea Green who challenged Nox’s championship aspirations, sparking a match.
Just as GUNTHER and Ciampa were wrapping up, Ciampa received a brutal beatdown, only to be rescued by none other than Johnny Gargano. The show ended with a bang as the duo hit their tag team finisher on Ludwig Kaiser.
Fastlane promises to be an unforgettable event, and if tonight’s RAW was anything to go by, we are in for a wild ride. You can bet our wrestling heroes are just warming up. So, strap in and hold on tight – the wrestling universe is about to blast off in spectacular style.
