Several Superstars Return To Raw
On today's episode on WWE Raw, we had a number of newsworthy returns.
As first revealed on Talking Smack, Mandy Rose has been traded to the red brand. What was not previously revealed is that Dana Brooke was also moved from Smackdown to Raw as part of a trade. Mandy Rose made her main roster debut on Raw back in 2017, alongside Sonya Deville and Paige in the Absolution faction. Dana Brooke also previously spent time on Raw, aligned with superstars like Emma, Charlotte and Titus Worldwide, with varying success in that run. Rose and Brooke were able to defeat Natalya and Lana in a tag team match.
Also, in the main event, Robert Roode made his return to WWE TV in the open challenge laid out by WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre. This resumed the partnership Roode previously had on Raw and Smackdown with Dolph Ziggler, who accompanied him at ringside. He had a good showing in a losing effort, but a talking point coming out of this appearance was the change in Roode's look, who was sporting a grown-out head of hair and beard.
