In March of 1997 during the Monday Night Wars WWE Raw went from being prerecorded to airing live. However, tonight's episode from Manchester, England will not be airing live tonight as it has just recently ended and a recording of the show will be what airs tonight. Which is why we can have spoilers for you (thank you for the play-by-play from Wrestling Inc.).
Intercontinental Champion The Miz opened the show. And on this episode of MizTV, he brought out his guest Kurt Angle, but not before spending some time ripping on United States Champion Baron Corbin. He then goes off on Angle and blames him for Braun Strowman attacking him last week. Which leads to Angle decreeing Miz v Strowman for later in the show.
Next, there was the Guitar On A Pole match between Jason Jordan and Elias. And although Elias did get to the guitar first, Jordan was the one who ended up using it on Elias and coming away with the win.
Next, they went to a backstage piece with Kurt Angle and The Bar.
Then, Asuka gets a quick victory over a local enhancement wrestler.
After that, it was supposed to be Samoa Joe v. Titus O'Neil, but the match doesn't happen because Joe attacks Titus before the match even starts. He then gets a microphone and puts a challenge out to anyone in the back—the challenge is answered by Finn Balor!
The Balor v. Joe match ended in a No Contest when officials had to break up a big brawl at ringside. Kurt Angle then made the announcement that both Samoa Joe and Finn Balor are on Team Raw for the Elimination Match at Survivor Series.

Cut to backstage and Kurt Angle makes his "son" Jason Jordan Team Raw member number five.
Next to the ring were Sasha Banks and Bayley v. Alicia Fox and Nia Jax. The team of Banks and Bayley got the win via a tap out by Fox to the Banks Statement. After the loss, Fox announced that Sasha and Bayley would be on Team Raw at Survivor Series.
After that, we got the match that was announced at the beginning of the show The Miz v. Braun Strowman. The match ends in a disqualification when Kane showed up and attacked Strowman. Braun gets the advantage but then The Miz and his Miztourage attack and beat him down. Strowman fights them all off.
WWE Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Amore is doing his thing, ragging on Kalisto (who happens to be at ringside). Angle comes out and calls for a match between Enzo and WWE UK Champion Pete Dunne.
Amore lost to Dunne and Kalisto celebrated with Dunne after the match.
Then it is confirmed that WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will be on next week's episode of Raw.
Then a backstage bit with Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss.
This weeks episode of 205 Live will feature WWE UK competitors.
In the Main Event match of the night, Cesaro and Sheamus defeated Rollins and Ambrose and became the new Raw Tag Team Champions. During the match, The New Day's music started and the SmackDown tag team came out teasing another "Under Siege" attack. However, this time Angle came out with the Raw roster. Sheamus connected with a Brogue Kick on Dean Ambrose and got his team the win and the title!
