WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: Seth Rollins Prepares for Match with "The Fiend"

It's the final WWE episode before Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia and the superstars of Monday Night RAW are getting ready, especially Universal Champion Seth Rollins.

Ahead of his championship match against Bray Wyatt's "The Fiend" at Crown Jewel, Rollins will take on new RAW superstar Erick Rowan in a Falls Count Anywhere match. Rollins and Wyatt's match in Saudi Arabia will also be a Falls Count Anywhere match, but in response to the end of Hell in a Cell it "won't be stopped for any reason." Can Rollins earn that all-important momentum ahead of his title match or can Rowan make a mark on Monday Night RAW with a victory over the Universal Champion?

The likely main event of Crown Jewel will be the Team Hogan vs Team Flair match pitting five WWE superstars against five others. Both Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will be on tonight's Monday Night RAW to hype up their match and Ricochet will have a rematch against Drew McIntyre. McIntyre returned from injury last week as Flair's last member of his team and went on to defeat Ricochet in a highly-contested bout. Can Ricochet turn the tides or will McIntyre continue his dominance?

Rusev and Lana's degrading marriage has been a major angle on RAW, and the two will appear on King's Court tonight to address the issues. With Lashley on Team Flair and Rusev on Team Hogan, both competitors have other reasons for wanting to get into the ring.

RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch will be in action tonight against Kairi Sane, one half of the Women's Tag Team Champions. This will be the first time these women face off in WWE and Lynch wants to continue to be the dominant force in the women's division.

Sane, on the other hand, with partner Asuka will defend the Women's Tag Team Championships against Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai on NXT this Wednesday so can she focus enough on tonight's match to shock the WWE Universe with a victory?

Here's everything that happened on the October 28 episode of Monday Night RAW.
