WWE Monday Night RAW Live Results: MSG Return Brings "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Four Horsewomen Tag Match and More

It's the final Monday Night RAW before the Clash of Champions pay-per-view, and the WWE will descend on Madison Square Garden for a special episode.

Tonight's episode of Monday Night RAW has a lot going on, especially when you consider "Stone Cold" Steve Austin returns to the WWE to help moderate the contract signing of Braun Strowman and Universal Champion Seth Rollins.

Last week, the two were interrupted by AJ Styles and The Club. Styles ripped up the contract and said that he should have a title shot against Rollins, not Strowman. This led to an all-out brawl and a tag team match. While Strowman and Rollins would defeat Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, the two would accidentally clash before Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler helped take out the RAW Tag Team Champions.

Styles has more to think about then the Universal Championship. After The Club took out Cedric Alexander backstage before his King of the Ring match, which was a big factor in his loss to Baron Corbin, a match between the former Cruiserweight Champion and Styles will take place on tonight's RAW.

The US Championship is currently not being defended on Sunday's Clash of Champions. If Alexander wins tonight, he could stake a claim at the title.

Speaking of King of the Ring, the Semifinals begin tonight as Baron Corbin, Samoa Joe and Ricochet square off in a triple threat match to determine the winner of the RAW bracket.

The Fourhorsewomen, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch willl clash tonight. Lynch and Flair will form an uneasy alliance against Sasha and Bayley. Banks and Bayley have formed their own alliance heading into their separate championship matches on Sunday. Who will go into Clash of Champions with the crucial momentum?

And finally, we have Rey Mysterio returning to the ring after he almost called it quits a few weeks ago. After being convinced by his son Dominick to not retire, Mysterio looks to show the WWE Universe he has a lot left in the tank as he goes one-on-one with the Lucha House Party's Gran Metalik.

Here's everything that happened on the September 9 episode of Monday Night RAW.
