WWE Raw: Randy Orton Turns on Ric Flair With a Brutal Punt Kick

Randy Orton took on Kevin Owens in this week's main event after Ric Flair seemingly talked KO into the match last week...

As the go home show to Hell In A Cell, SmackDown had a few storylines to iron. Let us find out how it fared.





Jeff Hardy gets unhinged

Even though it was fun to see Jeff Hardy beat up Randy Orton, it was detrimental to this feud. The reason heels are hated is because they use nefarious means to beat the heroes. Here this was another straight week where Randy Orton tried to ambush Hardy but Hardy turned the table quite emphatically.

If something like this happens at Hell In A Cell then Orton will basically be reduced to the role of a glorified jobber. The match with Nakamura was okay but it was again a crotch shot that is still silly. As a segment it was fine. So it gets a pass.

AJ Styles fires warning shots

This was a pretty standard segment with Styles basically telling everyone that the time for talking and intimidating will be over at Hell In A Cell and everything will be settled in the ring. This was a by the books promo that did everything it was supposed to so no complaints there. Joe didn’t make an appearance increasing the anticipation for his reply.
