Fans left confused over car crash segment on Raw, former NXT star returns

WWE fans were left baffled after seeing a car crash during the latest episode of Raw – but all was seemingly revealed later in the show.

After a match between Kevin Owens and Ezekiel, the camera cut backstage, where interviewer Kevin Patrick was waiting. He then approached Owens, who stated that he was ‘back’ – and put the entire Raw locker room on notice.

But whilst fans were keenly listening in to Owens’ speech, some spotted the presence of a crashed car behind him. Furthermore, Nikki ASH and Doudrop were standing around it, talking to security.

It wasn’t clear what or who caused the crash, or who was involved. Commentary also made no mention of the incident throughout the night. Nikki and Doudrop are in action next week, taking on the team of Asuka and Alexa Bliss in the Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament.

Later in the night, Asuka and Bliss cut a promo in the same backstage area as before, when a security group raced past them. Again, there was no actual reason given for this, and the Superstars backstage watched on in confusion as well.

Former NXT star returns after main event

The main event of Raw saw AJ Styles take on The Miz in a no-disqualification match. Styles picked up the win, hitting Miz with the Styles Clash for the pinfall.

After the match, ‘The Phenomenal One’ walked across the ring, celebrating his victory. But the camera then panned to someone being restrained by security. It was enough to catch the eye of Styles, who turned to look at the incident before continuing his celebrations.

But the camera stayed on the incident long enough to catch the face of former NXT star Dexter Lumis, who was wearing a black hoodie.

Lumis was released by WWE back in April. He is the latest former WWE Superstar to return to the company under the Triple H creative regime, after Dakota Kai and Karrion Kross.

Many fans assumed that Lumis was responsible for the earlier car crash segment, and the security segment, as a way of breaking into Raw. But seemingly, all will be revealed next week.
