WWE RAW notes: Street Profits and New Day swap tag titles, Lana earns RAW Women’s Title match

The Street Profits and New Day swapped their tag title belts as they head to opposite brands, Lana earns a shot at the RAW Women's Title, Elias' new album is coming out on 10/26 and Ricochet pays tribute to Eddie Guerrero.

Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods captured the SmackDown Tag Team Championships this past Friday on SmackDown. It was then discovered that they were being moved to the RAW brand without Big E. On the 10/12 episode of RAW, the RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) were drafted to SmackDown. Alongside Adam Pearce, the two teams met backstage and swapped their respective titles to match the brands that they’re now on.

New Day successfully defended their titles against SmackDown’s Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler on RAW.

Lana earned a shot at Asuka’s RAW Women’s Championship by winning a Battle Royal. Lana took the table bump for the fourth week in a row from Nia Jax but was never eliminated from the match. She made her way back in the ring to eliminate her partner Natalya from behind. Earlier in the night after losing to Dana Brooke and Mandy Rose, Natalya told Lana that their partnership is not working.

‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss who are now a part of RAW appeared on the show. They both hit ‘Sister Abigail’s’ onto Zelina Vega and Andrade.

Elias made his return to WWE TV after being out of action with a torn pectoral muscle. During his backstage interview following his return, Elias said he’ll be hosting a concert next week on RAW and his new album ‘Universal Truth’ is coming out on October 26th.

Ricochet took on Cedric Alexander. The stipulation was that if Ricochet won, his issues with The Hurt Business are over as both parties are staying on the same brand. If Ricochet lost, he’d join The Hurt Business. Ricochet used an Eddie Guerrero-esque trick to win the match via disqualification.

On next week’s episode of RAW, Braun Strowman and Keith Lee are going one-on-one. The 10/12 edition of the show also featured Lars Sullivan taking out John Morrison.
