WWE RAW Results – October 11, 2021
– Tonight’s WWE RAW opens live on the USA Network from the Chase Center in San Francisco, California as Jimmy Smith welcomes us. He’s joined at ringside by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton. The announcers hype tonight’s big women’s tag team match.
– We go right to the ring and out comes Drew McIntyre to a pop. McIntyre stops on the stage and raises his sword in the air as the pyro goes off. Drew takes the mic and comments on how he might not get to kick off RAW too much more. He hypes WWE Crown Jewel and his match with WWE Champion Big E, noting that everyone will talk about the match because this is where he will once again become WWE Champion.
Drew says he’s waited months for this match, this is his last chance at the title before going to SmackDown and he sure as hell won’t let it slip through his fingers. Drew goes to recall a story from earlier today but the music interrupts and out comes Big E to a big pop.
Big E takes the mic and says he gets it, he understands why Drew wants to be WWE Champion so badly. He goes on and says Drew is so accomplished, but he will never take this title from Big E. He says Drew has two options as the train has already left the station – you can jump onboard or your big sword wielding ass can stay on those tracks and get run smooth over. Drew fires back and says Big E is on cloud 9 as he should be, but he is still chasing his moment. He goes on and says he is going to run through Big E to win back the title and there’s not a damn thing Big E can do about it. The music interrupts and out come SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos – Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso.

The Usos say The Bloodline got drafted to SmackDown but they are now in this city, so tonight they’re sending out warning shots. They talk about how WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will retain over Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel, but they’re trying to figure out who will be WWE Champion – Big E or McIntyre. Graves says they’re talking about Reigns’ opponent at Survivor Series. They warn Big E and McIntyre about getting in Reigns’ way, and then say they have plans for Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods when they come to SmackDown. They toss a few more threats as Big E and McIntyre look on. Jimmy and Jey go to leave but Big E says they’re not coming out, running their mouths and then just leave. Big E goes to speak on behalf of Drew but Drew says no, he can’t. The Usos say they can speak on behalf of The Tribal Chief, and they propose a tag team match for tonight. Drew says they’re on. The Usos take advantage of Big E and McIntyre being distracted by each other, and end up dropping them both with superkicks. The Usos exit the ring as their music hits while Big E and McIntyre stare at each other from the mat.
