WWE Uncooked aired a present that noticed Brock Lesnar’s hunt for Rey Mysterio thwarted by an ambush from Mysterio himself. Mysterio will now go one-on-one with The Beast for the WWE Championship at Survivor Collection.
Shayna Baszler and Becky Lynch had a tense, non-physical showdown that was one of many highlights of Uncooked, whereas Adam Cole as soon as once more defended his NXT Championship, this time in a disqualification loss to Seth Rollins. By evening’s finish, NXT Superstars ambushed the Uncooked roster in a back-and-forth affair.

Although fallout from Crown Jewel (each out and in of the ring) and NXT’s invasion of Friday Night time SmackDown ought to add buzz to Uncooked, a Cowboys-Giants recreation on Monday Night time Soccer poses an ominous menace to viewership.

WWE Uncooked Outcomes: Monday, November four, 2019
Opening Section That includes Brock Lesnar Looking for Rey Mysterio
Brock Lesnar did extra talking on this episode of Uncooked than his complete month-long stint on the USA Community.
Paul Heyman threatened that Brock Lesnar would commit a felony, and afterward within the night, he threatened to kill Jerry Lawler. If Brock Lesnar can get away with illegally quitting SmackDown, I suppose they’re simply testing the waters to see what he can’t get away with.
Charlotte Aptitude and Natalya def. The Kabuki Warriors
I’m actually hoping Charlotte Aptitude and Natalya go the best way of Y2-AJ.
Until there may be one other heel flip on this match, there isn’t a approach Charlotte and Natalya had been going to lose this one.
Rey Mysterio Lays out Brock Lesnar
The longer this evening went on with no signal from Rey Mysterio, the extra his seemingly infallible babyface inventory took a success.
It’s too early in Dio Maddin’s profession to defend Jerry Lawler on commentary and actually get a response. Additionally, boy does he take an awkward-looking F5.
If Rey Mysterio had been to go on to one way or the other defeat Brock Lesnar, it very effectively may be the largest pop of 2019.
Buddy Murphy def. Cedric Alexander
Jerry Lawler famous he by no means tried to modify up his technique for an opponent, he sometimes wrestled the identical model all through his profession. Clearly, he applies the identical philosophies to his jokes.
This crowd was solely going to get so excited a few match between two “nice staff” with nothing else to point out for on WWE TV.
Seth Rollins Addresses Common Title Loss to The Fiend
Seth Rollins was wearing all black forward of this section, an excellent signal for a much-needed heel flip.
Seth Rollins is annoyed that he’s ranging from scratch however I believe that’s one thing he must take up with artistic.
This Uniondale crowd appeared to like NXT greater than even Buffalo did on Friday.
This entire section was a construct as much as see if Seth Rollins would develop into the newest Caucasian cruiserweight to affix the Undisputed Period.
Andrade and Zelina Vega def. Sin Cara and Catalina
I can’t bear in mind the final time a feminine luchador wrestled on WWE TV. This might be historic.
Catalina got here inside inches of screwing up a number of strikes on this match.
WWE’s use of Catalina is all the pieces you have to find out about how to not introduce a babyface to a brand new viewers.
Rusev calls out Bobby Lashley
Rusev described the occasions over the previous a number of weeks as “silly drama,” which is WWE communicate for “rankings killer!”
All Bobby Lashley needed to do is say his groin was going via “mechanical points” and he’d be the largest heel on this firm.
Uniondale was doing Rusev no favors by chanting “Rusev Day.” No person kills a dream quicker than WWE.
Did Rusev work a clause into his contract the place he will get to say all of the curse phrases on Uncooked?
Shayna Baszler Confronts Becky Lynch
This alternate from Shayna Baszler and Becky Lynch will promote quite a lot of tickets for Survivor Collection, with 70% of them being bought by Shayna.
Shayna Baszler is simply too large of a star to have her early run set the stage for a Ronda Rousey return. I pray that’s not what this can result in.
The O.C. def. The Avenue Earnings and Humberto Carrillo
SThe Finest within the World tag staff trophy is spectacular and all, however the very last thing Karl Anderson wanted was a reminder from Saudi Arabia.
AJ Types mentioned he and The O.C. would be sure that NXT would by no means step foot out of Orlando, which is a sound technique to kill WWE NXT by having them lose the Wednesday Night time Struggle in that tiny constructing.
Jerry Lawler deliberately mispronouncing Humberto’s title as “umbrella” was really fairly hilarious.
Humberto Carrillo’s comeback was quieter than the delayed airplane crammed with exhausted wrestlers on its approach again from Saudi Arabia.
The Viking Raiders def. The East Hampton Polo Boys
The East Hampton Polo Boys is the best jobber tag staff title I’ve ever heard.
WWE lastly let The Viking Raiders reduce a reside promo and, actually, that was a mistake.
Seth Rollins def. Adam Cole by way of Disqualification—NXT Championship
Throughout Triple H’s pitch to Seth Rollins, he conveniently ignored his personal betrayal of Seth Rollins in 2016.
Adam Cole’s response was decidedly much less potent in entrance of a three-hour crowd.
Triple H gave an impressed efficiency as “Dad compelled to look at his children battle.”
Triple H (and/or his ego) couldn’t have probably sat ringside throughout back-to-back world title matches with out getting concerned. That’s what I believed. I used to be mistaken.
Between WWE Uncooked and Friday Night time SmackDown, NXT is about up fairly properly to grab its first win of the Wednesday Night time Wars.
