High stakes provided the backbone for Monday's WWE Raw - Undertaker and Kane provided the violent climax, writes Ryan Dilbert of Bleacher Report.

With Seth Rollins out as world champ, WWE had to scramble to construct a new path to Survivor Series. In front of fans in Manchester, England, that meant delivering several first-round matches of the tournament to crown the next titleholder.

Roman Reigns and Cesaro were among those to knock over their competition to move on.

While the tourney took up the majority of Raw's airtime, WWE found space to have Paige enrage Charlotte, Natalya take another beating and Bray Wyatt find himself in the grip of the men he believed to have devoured.

WWE marched toward Survivor Series sans Rollins—and John Cena and Randy Orton, too—more smoothly than one might have imagined.

Intrigue is in the air, along with all the lighting the Brothers of Destruction brought with them.

The following is a look at the night's performances, storytelling and booking decisions, complete with letter grades and forward-minded thoughts.

Triple H tries to recruit Roman Reigns

With the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on a red-cloaked pedestal behind him, Triple H talked up Seth Rollins' title reign before welcoming Roman Reigns.

Triple H offered Reigns a spot in The Authority. He talked about how Rollins was willing to do anything to win, and that quality was all that Reigns was missing. The attempted recruitment failed. Reigns refused to sell out.

The Game then forced Reigns to relinquish his No. 1 contender's spot. He'd have to go through the entire WWE title tournament like everyone else.

Roman Reigns vs Big Show

Big Show dominated a slugfest with Roman Reigns. The big man pounded on the babyface, roaring as he planted him into the canvas.

Reigns struggled to hit his normal power moves thanks to Big Show's girth. Still, he survived Big Show's barrage and hit a Spear to get the comeback win.

Kevin Owens vs Titus O’Neil

Kevin Owens spat out insults to WWE, English fans and the Royal Family as he marched to the ring.

He then faced a tough challenge from Titus O'Neil. O'Neil steamrolled over the intercontinental champion and looked in control thanks to his power advantage.

Owens, though, struck with a surprise Pop-Up Powerbomb to advance.

Paige vs Becky Lynch

Before the bout, Paige mocked Renee Young backstage. She dismissed Becky Lynch's chances against her and promised to take down Charlotte at Survivor Series.

Once the bell rang, the match spilled over to the outside, with both women locked onto each other like pitbulls. Paige controlled much of the action, showing off her increased aggression. Lynch, though, rattled off a flurry of offense.

Lynch survived some of Paige's best moves and managed to roll her up for the win. Paige responded by bashing Lynch, torturing her with the PTO atop the announce table. Charlotte chased the heel away.

The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler

A fast-paced match remained even until The Miz hurt Dolph Ziggler's left leg. The heel then zeroed in on the bad wheel, trying to wear down Ziggler.

The Showoff survived the figure-four leglock, even with all the prior abuse on his leg. A superkick stunned The Miz to earn Ziggler the win. The babyface held up the WWE title to survive.

Viva MexAmerica

Zeb Colter took several digs at England. Alberto Del Rio added his own derogatory thoughts.

Colter announced that Del Rio will have his first-round WWE title tournament match on SmackDown. The manager promised that the U.S. champ will run the table.

Natalya vs Naomi

Natalya called out Naomi on Twitter, wondering if she is the leader of Team B.A.D., which was the setup for this match.

A cheap shot from Sasha Banks gave Naomi the advantage. Naomi ran into Tamina Snuka by accident, opening herself up for a roll-up from Natalya.

Team B.A.D. then beat up the babyface, putting sunglasses on her face as she tapped out in vain.

Sheamus vs Cesaro

With King Barrett at his side, Sheamus locked up with Cesaro. During the commercial break, Barrett insulted Wayne Rooney, who was sitting at ringside.

Cesaro out-wrestled Sheamus early , but The Celtic Warrior soon overpowered him. An up-and-down battle spilled to the outside, where Cesaro hurt his arm on the ring apron.

The action picked up speed and intensity. Rooney's presence distracted Sheamus enough to allow Cesaro to finish off the heel with an Inverted Chikara Special.

Tyler Breeze vs Dean Ambrose

Tyler Breeze derided Renee Young backstage before he sauntered to the ring with Summer Rae next to him.

Dean Ambrose brawled his way to the advantage early. Breeze battled back, though, smacking around The Lunatic Fringe.

Ambrose hurt his shoulder hitting a missle dropkick. Breeze jumped on the injury, attacking the arm with a fury. Nevertheless, Ambrose managed to roll up Breeze for the win.

The New Day vs Neville and The Usos

The New Day bemoaned the fact that none of its members got a spot in the WWE title tournament. The trio recalled its recent triumphs, tipping its hat to Seth Rollins.

Xavier Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston took turns punishing Jey Uso. Neville went on a rampage, gaining the momentum for his team. But a cheap shot from Big E and Woods using the ropes illegally netted the champs a victory.

Undertaker and Kane confront the Wyatt Family

Bray Wyatt wished to celebrate Kane and Undertaker's spirits as if both men were no longer of this world. He talked up the Brothers of Destruction, bowed his head in silence for them before dismissing them as "relics."
