Monday Night Raw has seen a number of gauntlet matches over the past 25 years but none anywhere near as long as this week's match.
Rollins showed superb conditioning and inspirational resiliency as he combatted the former world champions, knocking them off in succession before succumbing to a focused and tenacious Elias and a hampering knee injury. Next up was Intercontinental Champion The Miz who won with The Skull-Crushing Finale with help from his Miztourage, leaving the A-lister to face Braun Strowman in the final round. What began with Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, continued for over an hour as the Kingslayer managed to eliminate his Shield brother, before defeating John Cena with a dreaded Curb Stomp.More news: Carr, Watkins lead Penn State over No. 8 Ohio State

With two hours of action in just one match, the rest of Raw featured WWE women's champion Alexa Bliss in the main event teaming with Mandy Rose and Sonya DeVille against Sasha Banks, Mickie James and Bayley. Originally written off as a nuisance by Sheamus and Cesaro, Titus O'Neil and Apollo Crews have morphed into a credible threat as last night saw the team of Titus Worldwide clash in a non-title match against the champs.More news: Wales shaken by 4.4 magnitude natural disaster
Reigns, who later had his Spear stopped by Rollins, was defeated by The Architect following a series of roll-up pin attempts by both men. Tapping out, Absolution then pounced on the battered ring warriors and looked ready to demolish Bliss.
