Raw Results 10/18/10

WWE Raw results from Calgary, Canada:

Cole and Lawler were on hand to start off the show, less than a week before Bragging Rights PPV. Just then, Smackdown GM Theodore Long arrived out. Long said he came tonight to Raw, because he can. Long said he'd be taking over Raw tonight. The fans booed, just as the computer email lights and sound effect went off. Cole got up to read as usual.

The email from the Raw GM said "Get out of my ring, now." and told Teddy Long he has no business being there. Long had a ref bring out the Bragging Rights trophy which currently belongs to Smackdown. Long said they will repeat as champs. The lights flashed again for another email, saying "Get out of my ring, or else." Long got out of the ring so Cole went up and confronted him. The lights flashed yet again, so Long went over to the podium and made an announcement. He said now the Raw GM is disconnected. He shut the laptop down, then introduced his Team Smackdown.

Team captain Big Show arrived out first, followed by Edge, Alberto Del Rio, Kofi Kingston, Jack Swagger, Tyler Reks and finally Rey Mysterio. All seven guys wore Smackdown blue t-shirts and assembled in the ring together. Just then, The Miz's theme music hit and he arrived out wearing a red Raw T-shirt with his apprentice Alex Riley.

Miz said it looks like the smurfs got blown up near a nuclear power plant. He called Show "Fat Smurf," Del Rio "Rico Suave smurf," and Edge "Smurfette." Miz said that Raw will be taking the trophy home this year, then introduced his team: CM Punk, John Morrison, Santino Marella, newest member Ezekiel Jackson and Sheamus. The Miz warned Team Smackdown to get out of their ring, or they'll make them get out. Smackdown didn't budge so Team Raw advanced down the ramp in formation, then charged. A big fight started up in the ring, including Alex Riley in the mix.

Miz eventually pulled his men out of the ring and held them back, saying "save it for Sunday." Big Show got on the mic saying they'll get out of the ring willingly if Miz faces him one-on-one in a captain vs captain match. CM Punk whispered in Miz's ear, then the rest of the team shoved him forward saying "do it." Miz agreed to the match later on.

Teddy Long was still standing nearby Cole and Lawler, with the Raw GM laptop in hand. Cole told him to get away and go back to Smackdown. They reviewed highlights from last week's Cena vs Miz match to win the captain spot for Team Raw.

Wade Barrett hit the ring to pull Cena away and continually insulted him to end Raw.

Late in the match, Smith hit a running powerslam for a near fall. Rhodes came in to break up the move, then went against the ropes, but Kidd was able to deliver a kick move from the apron. Kidd prepared for the Hart Attack, but Smith instead went for the Sharpshooter, ignoring Kidd. Tyson yelled at DH so he turned around to confront him. As DH went back to Drew he got kicked in the leg and Drew hit the FutureShock DDT for the win.
