WWE Raw (Episode 1,587)
Dallas, Texas at American Airlines Center
Aired live October 23, 2023 on USA Network

[Hour One] Raw opened with highlights from last week of Damian Priest and Finn Balor beating Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso to win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles… The Raw opening aired. Michael Cole, who was joined on commentary by Wade Barrett, welcomed viewers to the show…

Damian Priest and Finn Balor made their entrance while being introduced by ring announcer Samantha Irvin. Balor welcomed viewers to Raw and then got Priest’s permission to deliver his “All rise for The Judgment Day” line. Priest told him it wasn’t bad at all. Priest said Judgment Day was back with the gold and was then interrupted.

Cody Rhodes made his entrance dressed in a suit. Once in the ring, Cody asked how it felt to be interrupted. He said he had some choice words for the leader of Judgment Day, but he could see that Rhea Ripley wasn’t in the ring. Cody assumed they would claim there’s no leader of the faction, but Rhea is their Mami too. Cody said Ripley is cutting all the deals, including one with The Bloodline.

Cody said the low blow that Priest hit him with isn’t the final shot in their fight. Priest reminded Cody that he also put him through the broadcast table. Priest brought up Cody’s story and said it has to be that Cody failed. Cody loosened his tie and said they could put that theory to the test.

Priest asked if Cody was going to pretend that he doesn’t have a match against Jey Uso. Priest said they could meet at Crown Jewel, which Cody accepted. Cody said they could give everyone a preview of Crown Jewel. Priest said he liked that idea.

Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio started to walk toward the ring. Jey Uso ran out and attacked Dom from behind. Cody got the better of Priest and slammed his head on the broadcast table. Cody cleared the table and set up for a powerbomb.

JD McDonagh showed up and chop blocked Cody from behind. Priest placed a chair against the ring steps while McDonagh held Cody. Priest slammed another chair on Cody’s leg, which was up against the first chair. Adam Cole and a group of producers and referees came out while Cody was down selling his injury…

The broadcast team recapped the Cody injury angle and played up a left ankle injury…

Backstage, Cody was selling the ankle while Adam Pearce and Jey Uso stood by. Jey helped Cody walk slowly… The broadcast team hyped Cody vs. Priest for Crown Jewel. Cole wondered what shape Cody’s ankle would be in…

Powell’s POV: I read the Cody vs. Priest match being pushed by the broadcast team as good news in that Cody’s injury angle wasn’t done to write him out due to a legitimate injury.

Cole and Barrett ran through the previously advertised Raw matches and segments…

Chad Gable, Otis, Maxxine Dupri, and Akira Tozawa were inside the ring. The New Day duo of Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods made their entrance…
