WWE Raw Results: News And Notes After General Manager-Elect Baron Corbin Defeats Finn Balor


WWE Raw was dominated by Baron Corbin as the heel acting General Manager dubbed himself General Manager-elect. Book-ending the show, WWE made the risky choice of promoting a Raw featuring a Baron Corbin main event.

Corbin appeared in the main event against Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship on the September 17 broadcast of Raw, but the show still saw a 14.3% drop from the first to the third hour, although it did face competition from the NFL and the Emmys.

Though Raw faced stiff competition from last week’s historic Monday Night Football shootout between top teams the Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs, Raw still saw a slight .37% uptick in viewership with 2.450 million average viewers.

Opening Segment featuring Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre

Baron Corbin has gone from a Lone Wolf, to a Constable to a General Manager Elect. His next nickname should be “the man of a 1000 nicknames.”

I wouldn’t expect Baron Corbin or any WWE Superstar to like Thanksgiving because chances are they had to work that night.

Bobby Lashley def. Elias

If anybody on the planet specializes in personality-driven poses, Lashley needs to find that person stat.

Something tells me WWE will pretend that…
