Clawing for the Crown

On Raw, New Red brand superstar Ilja Dragunov, his arch-nemesis Gunther, and Jey Uso are all moving on to the quarterfinals of this tourney after coming out victorious in their respective matches. This only leaves one spot for the Raw bracket quarterfinals, which will be the winner of the match between Rey Mysterio and Kofi Kingston.

The ladies on Raw also didn’t let up, with Lyra ValkyriaIYO SKY, and Zoey Stark securing their spot for the next round, leaving Shayna Baszler and former inaugural Queen of the Ring Zelina Vega to scrap for their position in the next phase of this competition.

These matches were some of the absolute best WWE has to offer all year. However, there’s no doubt that the WWE SmackDown crew has a lot in store for the WWE Universe.
