NXT made their presence known on WWE Raw, and the Road To Survivor Series comes into focus.
WWE Raw was live on November 5th, and the black and gold made sure their presence was felt throughout the night.
The Third Star for WWE Raw: Shayna Baszler
Shayna Baszler’s interruption of Becky Lynch’s sit down interview is a tactic that has been used before, but is one of the few WWE devices that hasn’t been overused. Baszler looked legit in the segment, and having her call out the immediate comparison to Ronda Rousey was a brilliant way to shut that down. Survivor Series might be a triple threat, but this match could be money on a grand scale as a one-on-one contest.
Elisa looks great in her Chairshot gear.

The First Star for WWE Raw: Adam Cole
The chief beneficiary of this “invasion” by NXT is the champion (Le Champion?) himself, Adam Cole BAY BAY. He has Triple H in his corner, and the crowd is responding to everything he does.
The match was great while it lasted, and I was really worried that Adam Cole was losing. The DQ finish was more predictable, and it could lead to a Survivor Series rematch. This angle is money, and they’re going to milk it. Welcome to the big time, NXT! Adam Cole is the right man to lead you that way.
In hockey, a game’s “Three Stars Of The Night” represent the top three performers of the night. For more clarification, I defer to this Pittsburgh Gazette explanation:
“The tradition dates to the 1936-37 season, when Imperial Oil became the principal sponsor of Hockey Night in Canada radio broadcasts and was seeking a way to promote one of its products, Three Star gasoline. The idea of doing so by selecting the top three performers in a particular game purportedly came from a Canadian advertising agency.
Many clubs do recognize the player with the most three-star selections with an award or trophy, usually in conjunction with a corporate sponsorship, at the end of the season (or sometimes, each month). All six Canadian franchises, for example, have an affiliation with a well-known brewery.
The NHL keeps track of its own Three Stars Of The Night selections, but that is done on a league-wide basis. The league employs a system that awards 30 points to a first star, 20 to a second star and 10 to a third – a running total can be found on the league’s website – but it does not present an award based on them.”
In hockey tradition, the first star represents the best of the three, but all three are considered to be receiving a high honor.
