WWE 'Monday Night RAW' Results: Randy Orton's Latest Title Reign Begins Tonight

Hell in a Cell is in the rearview mirror, but the WWE will build to the Survivor Series pay-per-view starting tonight on Monday Night RAW.

The October 26 edition of WWE's flagship show will see the beginning of a new top champion and a lot more fallout from Hell in a Cell. Randy Orton defeated Drew McIntyre in a Hell in a Cell to capture his 14th WWE Championship.

Orton proved that he is at the top of his game on Sunday, but what will this new reign mean for the rest of Monday Night RAW? Will we see a new challenger in "The Fiend" or Keith Lee? Will Drew McIntyre get a rematch, or will he get into another feud? The top of Monday Night RAW is in flux, so it'll be interesting to see how the WWE handles it.

The Miz finally got what he wanted, the Money in the Bank briefcase. After getting a Hell in a Cell match against Otis with the briefcase on the line, the former champion won with the assist of a heel turn from Tucker.

Miz is a Monday Night RAW superstar, but will he really want to cash-in on Randy Orton or will he keep an eye on who is holding the title for the right time? Also, will we see Otis and Tucker start their feud on RAW tonight?

Jeff Hardy got to get one over on Elias after striking him with his own guitar on Sunday. While the act got Hardy disqualified, the WWE Universe knows this is just the beginning between these two.

In an impromptu match, US Champion Bobby Lashley took out Retribution's Slapjack in a one-on-one bout. What is the next chapter in the feud between The Hurt Business and Retribution?

With Survivor Series next month, we'll likely get some more information on what the format will be. Will we get Monday Night RAW taking on SmackDown again? Will NXT be involved this year? How will The Undertaker get involved? Plenty of questions, and tonight may be the start of some answers.

Here's everything that happened on the October 26 episode of Monday Night RAW.
