In a thrilling episode of WWE Raw, Cody Rhodes, famously known as the "American Nightmare," faced an unexpected turn of events, suffering a serious ankle injury. The episode kicked off with Rhodes boldly interrupting the newly crowned Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, Damian Priest and Finn Balor.

The interruption set the stage for a highly anticipated singles match scheduled for Crown Jewel on November 4th. However, before the grand event, fans were treated to a small teaser. Dominik Mysterio and the fierce Rhea Ripley rushed to the ring, leading to an all-out brawl.

Surprisingly, Jey Uso intervened, targeting Dominik. Amidst the chaos, JD McDonagh played a pivotal role, aiding Damian Priest. Together, they ruthlessly attacked Rhodes's left ankle using steel chairs. The brutality was only halted by the intervention of Adam Pearce and other WWE officials.

Rhea Ripley had an eventful night, attempting to sway Seth Rollins with an offer from Judgment Day. Later in the evening, she played a crucial role in Drew McIntyre's victory over Sami Zayn. While Rollins and McIntyre were presented with a tempting offer before Crown Jewel, they unanimously decided to maintain the integrity of their World Heavyweight Title match at Judgment Day.

As the night drew to a close, Balor cunningly diverted Jey Uso's attention, allowing Priest to seize the victory. Post-match, Judgment Day sought revenge, targeting Jey's ankle. However, an injured Cody Rhodes showcased his resilience, using a steel chair to fend off the attackers.

Fans were also treated to a stellar tag team match featuring The New Day's Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods against the formidable Alpha Academy duo, Chad Gable and Otis. New recruit Akira Tozawa supported Alpha Academy from the ringside, while Lyra Valkyria spectated Becky Lynch's match.

The NXT Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, successfully retained her title against the tenacious Indi Hartwell. Before their bout at Halloween Havoc, Lynch and Valkyria exchanged heated words. The evening took another dramatic turn during the contract signing for the Fatal 5-Way Women’s World Title match.

Challengers Nia Jax, Raquel Rodriguez, Zoey Stark, and Shayna Baszler didn't hold back, leading to an all-out brawl, with Rhea Ripley observing the chaos. With such high-octane action, WWE Raw continues to captivate fans worldwide, setting the stage for what promises to be an exhilarating Crown Jewel event.
