Last night's episode of RAW decided who from the Monday night show will advance to the King and Queen of the Ring finals in Saudi Arabia this Saturday. 

In the Queen of the Ring semifinal match, NXT callup Lyra Valkyria managed to defeat Iyo Sky after a heated back-and-forth match which saw the Damage CTRL leader rolled up for the 1-2-3 after missing a moonsault.

As for the King of the Ring, it looked like Jey Uso might defeat Gunther after a spear and Uso Splash. However, the referee being knocked down gave the former Intercontinental Champion time to kick out.

With that, Gunther chopped and choked Jey out to pick up the win as RAW went off the air. He'll face either Randy Orton or Tama Tonga, while Valkyria will battle either Bianca Belair or Nia Jax.

Chad Gable's heel turn also proved to be must-watch television, with it clear now that WWE is positioning him as the next Kurt Angle (he's even started getting "You Suck!" chants from fans). 

Whether WWE will pull the trigger on him becoming Intercontinental Champion remains to be seen, though it's clear Otis will soon turn on the Alpha Academy leader. The stage is also being set for The Creed Brothers to join Gable, giving us a new spin on "Team Angle."

Elsewhere in the show, Sonya Deville made her return and Bron Breakker seemingly turned heel. There were also more hints in the background of various backstage segments that Liv Morgan is worming her way into The Judgement Day with Rhea Ripley on the injured list.
