Here are the takeaways from this week’s episode of RAW:

Keith Lee Advanced To The Triple Threat Match

Randy Orton kicked off the show and said he took it as a sign of disrespect that McIntyre offered him a title rematch out of pity. Orton added that the only thing McIntyre deserves is the fractured jaw he gave him. Randy added that he shouldn’t have to face Owens and compete in the Triple Threat match later tonight because he is entitled. Randy vowed to win the Triple Threat match and then showed a photoshopped picture of Edge, Michaels, Ric Flair, Big Show, Christian, and McIntyre at the hospital.

Keith Lee interrupted and made his way to the ring. Lee said Orton is fixated on the havoc he has caused and doing his best to forget that he beat him last night at Payback. Keith added that he gave Orton no choice last night but to bask in his glory. Lee said that since he beat Orton maybe he deserves the title opportunity. Ziggler attacked Keith Lee from behind and planted him with a DDT as RAW went to break.

Match Recap: Keith dominated early and sent Ziggler flying into the turnbuckle. Dolph rolled out of the ring to by himself some time. Back in the ring, Ziggler connected with a Neckbreaker and went for a cover but Lee powered out at one. Dolph followed it up with a Fameasser for a two count. Ziggler connected with the Zig Zag but Keith Lee kicked out again. Lee then planted Dolph with the Spirit Bomb for the pinfall victory. Lee advanced to the Triple Threat match later on the show.

Mickie James Defeated Lana

RAW Women’s Champion Asuka said that she has defeated many great women and that she is ready to face anyone. Mickie James interrupted and said she recognizes greatness when she sees it. Mickie told Asuka that she is coming for the RAW Women’s Championship. Lana and Natalya interrupted and called Mickie selfish.

Lana boasted about her fashion and claimed Natalya is the leader of the women’s division. Asuka said she is ready for all of them and a brawl broke out as RAW went to a break. When RAW returned, Lana faced Mickie James and Asuka was on commentary. Natalya was ringside for the match. Lana controlled the match early but Mickie battled back and hit the Mick Kick for the pinfall victory.
