WWE Raw notes: Lashley & Lesnar brawl, Dexter Lumis ambushes Miz, Karl Anderson, Belair-Cross

Bobby Lashley & Brock Lesnar brawl ahead of Crown Jewel, Dexter Lumis is back, Karl Anderson gets a W, Belair defeats Nikki Cross

Ahead of WWE Crown Jewel where Bobby Lashley and Brock Lesnar are scheduled to go one-on-one, the two were supposed to have a sit-down interview segment but ended up brawling near the ring which led to the locker room clearing out to separate them. Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque made an appearance and attempted to stop the two from going at it.

The Miz came out as Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was addressing his match at Crown Jewel against Logan Paul. Miz offered to inform Reigns about how to defeat Paul in exchange for Reigns taking care of Dexter Lumis. Reigns ended up ‘Superman Punching’ Miz for implying that Paul could take him out on Saturday with a punch.

In a singles match between Karl Anderson and Damian Priest, Anderson got the win off of a backslide pin. Anderson, Luke Gallows and AJ Styles were immediately ambushed by Priest, Finn Balor, Dominik Mysterio and Rhea Ripley. On RAW Talk, The O.C. questioned how they are going to deal with Ripley. AJ looked over to backstage correspondent Cathy Kelley for possible assistance.

Dexter Lumis is back on Raw and caused The Miz to lose to Mustafa Ali. Later in the show, Byron Saxton conducted a sit-down interview with Johnny Gargano who claimed he knows all about The Miz-Lumis dynamic. With audio proof to back it, Gargano claims that initially, Miz and Lumis were in cahoots with the planned attacks. Gargano added that over time, Miz stopped paying Lumis and now Lumis is really coming after him because he’s owed money.

MVP will be appearing on the 11/4 Friday Night SmackDown. He said he and Omos have a gift for Braun Strowman.

At the ‘Main Event’ taping, NXT’s Kiana James defeated Dana Brooke and there was a tag match that saw R-Truth and Shelton Benjamin defeat Von Wagner and Duke Hudson.
