Originally published at WWE Raw notes: Undisputed Tag Title match, Jey Uso turns down Judgment Day, Nia Jax crashes tag bout

Scheduled for the 9/25 Monday Night Raw is Judgment Day’s Damian Priest and Finn Bálor defending the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships against Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. At the Payback Premium Live Event, Bálor and Priest defeated Owens and Zayn for the titles. 

In the main event of the show, Jey Uso went one-on-one with Drew McIntyre. Judgment Day has been trying to sway Jey to join their group. Priest told Jey that the group needed an answer by the end of the night. Priest, Bálor and Dominik Mysterio got involved in the match against McIntyre. In the end, Jey turned down their help and superkicked Priest and Finn.

When he turned around, he was met with a ‘Claymore’ from McIntyre which secured the win for the former WWE Champion. Post-match, Judgment Day beat Uso down and McIntyre contemplated going to help him, but Cody Rhodes ended up making the save and helping Jey fend off Judgment Day. 

Nia Jax is back in WWE and she crashed a tag match on the 9/18 show. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Chelsea Green and Piper Niven were facing Shayna Baszler and Zoey Stark until Jax entered the pictured and took out everyone. 

Early in the show, NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio stated that WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley was not present due to injury, stemming from Nia Jax’s beat down on 9/11. Michael Cole added on commentary that Rhea has bruised ribs and Raquel Rodriguez suffered whiplash. 

According to PWInsider, former NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis produced a match between Nikki Cross and Indi Hartwell. Robert Roode produced a bout between Tegan Nox and Xia Li. Both matches were taped for Main Event. 

Becky Lynch had her first defense of the NXT Women’s Championship when she bested Natalya in singles competition. Lynch is scheduled for the 9/19 NXT on USA Network.

With Jey Uso now on Raw, Kevin Owens is not seeing eye-to-eye with Sami Zayn and Cody Rhodes about why they want him on the brand. Owens mentioned that Jey is a part of the reason Zayn lost to Roman Reigns at Elimination Chamber and part of the reason why Cody did not dethrone Reigns at WrestleMania 39

In addition to the Undisputed Tag Title match, the following announcements were made for the 9/25 Raw: 

  • Bronson Reed vs. Otis (w/ Chad Gable & Maxxine Dupri)
  • Shinsuke Nakamura to respond to Seth Rollins offering World Heavyweight Title shot. Nakamura can name the location and stipulation.
