WWE Raw Results 9/25 - Undisputed Tag Team Title Match, North American Title Match And More

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results for "WWE Raw" on September 25, 2023, coming to you live from the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California!

The Undisputed Tag Team Championship will be on the line, as Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have the opportunity to recapture the Undisputed Tag Team Championship from titleholders Finn Balor and Damian Priest. Owens and Zayn lost the title to the Judgment Day members at WWE Payback earlier this month in a Steel City Street Fight.

For the first time since successfully retaining against Sami Zayn on July 24, Dominik Mysterio will be defending his "NXT" North American Championship on "Raw" against Dragon Lee. Dominik has only defended his title on a main roster show on one other occasion, defeating Butch on the July 21 episode of "WWE SmackDown".

Speaking of Dominik, Cody Rhodes has something on his mind to share after picking up a win against him on last week's edition of "Raw". Later on that night, Rhodes tried to get the aforementioned Owens on board with the idea of Jey Uso being a member of the "Raw" roster, and saved the former Bloodline member after he was attacked by Judgment Day following his match with Drew McIntyre. Speaking of McIntyre, The Miz will be hosting him as his special guest on "MizTV" as the talk show makes its return.

Tensions between Shinsuke Nakamura and Seth "Freakin" Rollins have been boiling for several weeks now in light of their World Heavyweight Championship match at Payback. Things culminated last week when a frustrated Rollins challenged Nakamura to a rematch and tonight, Nakamura will be providing Rollins with an answer as to whether or not he will accept.

Additionally, Bronson Reed will be going one-on-one with Otis after picking up a win over Chad Gable last week.

We are live! Michael Cole and Wade Barrett greet audiences at home as Cody Rhodes makes his way down to the ring.

We Hear From Cody Rhodes

Rhodes welcomes fans to "Raw", then says he has been interrupted two weeks in a row trying to get out what he needs to. He says Jey Uso coming to "Raw" means someone is heading to "SmackDown" and a disgruntled "Raw" locker room. He says while he isn't best friends with Jey, he wasn't going to stand by as Judgment Day attacked him because helping him was the right thing to do. He calls Judgment Day toxic before the group's music hits.

Damian Priest, Finn Balor, and Dominik Mysterio make their way down to the ring, and Balor asks Rhodes why he has to stick his nose in Judgment Day business. Priest says they gave Jey the chance to join a real family, but he had to save the day because everything is always about him. Dominik looks to speak, but boos rain down on him from the crowd. Rhodes tells him that although he has a real family, they can't stand him. He asks Judgment Day what happens when Rhea Ripley returns and all three of them have lost their titles tonight. Dominik tells Rhodes to keep Ripley's name out of his mouth before hopping up on the apron with Priest and Balor. Jey appears to provide Rhodes with some backup, and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens are right on his heels. With the odds becoming 4 against 3, Judgment Day backs down and heads to the back. However, halfway up the ramp, JD McDonagh appears with two chairs in hand. He hands one to Balor and they head back into the ring along with Dominik. Priest tries stopping them, but they disregard them and a brawl ensues. Owens, Zayn, Rhodes, and Jey dump McDonagh, Balor, and Dominik out of the ring. They then all go after Priest, and Rhodes cracks one of the chairs across his spine.

Alpha Academy then makes their way down to the ring. Bronson Reed follows. 

Otis (w/ Maxxine Dupri) vs. Bronson Reed

The bell rings and the two lock up. Reed looks for a shoulder tackle, but Otis stays on his feet and looks for one of his own. Reed stays standing before the pair attempt to level one another with clotheslines. After an unsuccessful first try, they both take one another down a second time. The action spills to the outside, and Otis clotheslines Reed. Reed then sends him crashing into the ring post and levels him with a clothesline of his own before getting him back inside the ring.

Reed gets Otis on his shoulders and plants him with a Samoan Drop. They then level one another with crossbodies, and Otis lands a back suplex. He follows it up with a splash in the corner and The Caterpillar, then ascends to the middle rope and looks for a Vader Bomb. Reed moves out of the way and delivers a running senton, then ascends to the top and delivers the Tsunami for the win.

Winner: Bronson Reed

We then see Becky Lynch shining up her "NXT" Women's Championship backstage. Tegan Nox walks in and Lynch says she expected her to answer her open challenge instead of Natalya.

Will Shinsuke Nakamura Say Yes To A Rematch With Seth Rollins?

He tells them to do the same if they think it's time for him to defend his World Heavyweight Championship, then calls out Shinsuke Nakamura unless he wants him to move on to another challenger.

Nakamura appears on the Titan Tron and says Rollins has many demands. He says he wants nothing more than to be the straw that breaks Rollins' back, then says while his stamina is admirable, he has no patience. He says Rollins showed his hand while he has yet to show his, then formally accepts Rollins' challenge. He calls his shot for the World Heavyweight Championship at Fastlane in a Last Man Standing Match. Rollins takes a minute to think it over and admits that Nakamura played his hand perfectly. He says Nakamura is forgetting one thing, and that is that his back is not a weakness but rather a strength. He says his family will only be ashamed of him if he doesn't give it his all, then accepts his stipulation and says one of them will walk out as champion, adding that will be him.

Cole asks Jax why she's targeted the entire women's division, and Jax says she wasn't paying attention to him. She says she's Nia Jax, then calls herself the baddest human in all of WWE. She says everyone thought that title would go to Rhea Ripley, but she squashed her. She says the same thing applies to Shayna Baszler, Zoey Stark, Raquel Rodriguez, Chelsea Green, and Piper Niven, and she squashed all of them.

Zoey Stark's music hits, and she gets in Jax's face. She says Jax squashed her, but she did it while her back was turned. She dares her to do something while she's face-to-face with her, and the pair begin brawling.

Miz welcomes fans to "MizTV", then introduces Drew McIntyre.

McIntyre makes his way down to the ring, and Miz tells him that he can speak freely. McIntyre asks Miz if he has any questions, and Miz applauds McIntyre for standing idly by as Jey Uso was being attacked by Judgment Day last week. McIntyre says he is nothing like Miz, and Miz says what he did was in his image. He then says McIntyre was unbeatable until he wasn't, and given his history, it makes sense he doesn't trust Jey. McIntyre says karma is a b****, and Miz says McIntyre is the Batman of WWE. He says Cody Rhodes is the Superman, then asks how it felt to be beat by him last week.

New Day's music hits. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods appear, and Kingston says McIntyre is not a coward like he showed them last week. Woods echoes the same sentiment. Miz cuts them off and says they were having a conversation before McIntyre then interrupts him and says no one did anything until Rhodes helped Jey last week. Kingston says McIntyre should've helped Jey out, and McIntyre reminds them of all their losses at the hands of The Bloodline. The pair continue arguing with one another until Miz puts his hand up.

He then lands a vicious chop and the action spills to the outside. Kingston delivers a tope suicida, but McIntyre catches him with a vicious right hand and sends Kingston crashing into the ring apron face first. He gets him back inside the ring and looks for a Claymore Kick, but Kingston ducks out of the way and lands an SOS. He goes for a pin, but McIntyre kicks out.
