Check those cheeky little mugs on Randy Orton and Baron Corbin.

Both were reacting to the final few moments of WWE's "season premiere" of Raw involving Lana, Rusev, Bobby Lashley and a boatload of betrayal. It was an eventful night for them elsewhere too; Orton and 'King' Corbin find themselves on Team Flair at Crown Jewel in Saudi, and that distinction has added so much weight to Baron that he's literally wrecking the joint.

Other things you might've missed include some smart announce work from Raw's new trio, an interesting contrast between WWE's presentation of old and new, some sweary words possibly being thrown around live on air, production botches (that, unlike the set design and recent creative direction, hasn't changed), and more.

If you've ever wondered how WWE could reference WCW, steal TNA ideas, make The Miz mark out like a 10-year old kid, give the game away for this Sunday's Hell In A Cell pay-per-view and beat the living p*ss out of "teenagers" all on the one show, then this is the article for you.
