The main matches appear to be set for the WWE Crown Jewel event on Thursday, October 31 although there was one addition on Raw last night.
Ric Flair started off Raw with a promo about how his team is going to beat Team Hulk Hogan. Then Flair announced that Drew McIntyre will be on Flair’s team. McIntyre has been off TV for nearly two months after some minor injuries and he was booked strong with a win over Ricochet, who is on Team Hogan.
Team Ric Flair, which consists of all heels, is captained by Randy Orton, Baron Corbin, Bobby Lashley, Shinsuke Nakamura and Drew McIntyre.
Team Hulk Hogan, which consists of all faces, is captained by Roman Reigns, Rusev, Ricochet, Shorty G and Ali.
