AJ Styles won the Sudden Death Tripple Threat at last night’s Monday Night RAW and will now challenge WWE champion, Drew McIntyre. Apart from that, the biggest impression from this event was Randy Orton finding Bray Wyatt’s weak spot.
Styles clashed Riddle and Keith Lee in the Sudden Death Tripple Threat, hoping to secure a spot at the big WWE TLC as the title challenger. After one superb battle against two high-profile opponents, he managed to fulfill the goal. AJ Styles would beat Riddle via pinfall following his Phenomenal Forearm, using the fact that his opponent was distracted with Keith Lee, who was dominating the match early on.
Lee was harassing both his rivals, using his fantastic physical abilities to handle both AJ Styles and Riddle. He would simultaneously hurt both guys at certain points, and it seemed that his triumph here was inevitable.
Riddle and Lee were having a massive battle down the stretch, with AJ cleverly standing aside and jumping in from time to time, not wasting too much of his energy. In the end, Riddle would eliminate Lee with a knee strike, but only to find himself experiencing AJ’s Phenomenal Forearm, and a loss.
The upcoming WWE TLC on December 20 will see a super clash between him and Drew McIntyre. For Styles, this is a perfect chance to regain the WWE Championship belt, the one he craves ever since late 2017.
Randy Orton was also in the middle of the attention, with the Viper being the guest of Alexa Bliss’s show, “A Moment of Bliss.” After a chat between them, during which they mentioned Orton’s defeat against Styles last week and the Fiend’s interference to help AJ, the discussion moved in a different direction.
Orton, who wasn’t sitting in the chair, began talking about the Fiend, stating that the two have many things in common, such as voices inside their head. The Viper believed that he burned Wyatt’s weakness with the recent fire he caused, but that he now has to find Fiend’s crushing point.
It is obvious that he thought Bliss is Fiend’s weakness, and as soon he revealed that, Fiend showed up, while on the other side, while Orton held Alexa in his arms. He would hand her to the big rival, but with a smile on his face,as he rolled out of the ring. It seems that the Viper once again found the mental edge against one of his rivals.
