This week’s RAW saw Bianca Belair and Damage Ctrl make new additions to their Women’s War Games teams, Austin Theory get a character change and Seth Rollins defend his United States Championship against Finn Balor.
It’s now time for my 5 things we learnt article. If you haven’t read my previous 5 things we learnt articles, this is how the article works. After each RAW, Smackdown and WWE Premium Live Event, I will release an article which is basically just five opinions I have on the show.
Hopefully I will be able to do these articles for AEW as well, but there is only so much wrestling I can watch each week so at the moment I will only be making these articles for WWE.
So, here are 5 things we learnt from this week’s RAW.
5. Bianca Belair and Damage Ctrl add to their War Games teams
The build for the Women’s War Games match at Survivor Series continued on this week’s RAW. Damage Ctrl offered Mia Yim a spot on their team, but Mia Yim turned that down in favour of joining Bianca Belair’s team. Rhea Ripley then said she will join Damage Ctrl’s team because Mia Yim is on Bianca’s team. This now means Bianca’s team has four wrestlers and Damage Ctrl’s team has five wrestlers.
WWE did a good job of building more excitement for Survivor Series on this week’s RAW. These aren’t just random additions to the teams either, it makes sense that Rhea would want to join Damage Ctrl’s team after Mia Yim joined Bianca’s team. There is still one spot left in Bianca’s team, so it will be interesting to see who takes that spot, my guess is Candice LeRae.
I’m really excited for this match, I can’t remember the last time I was genuinely excited for Survivor Series, but that’s what happens when you add an exciting match stipulation like War Games on the show.
