Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up on the USA Network with a look back at how Bobby Lashley won a Fatal 4 Way last week to become the new #1 contender to WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. We’re live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as Jimmy Smith welcomes us. He’s joined at ringside by Corey Graves and Byron Saxton.

– We go right to the ring and out comes WWE Champion Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman. The pyro hits as they continue to the ring. Graves hypes Bobby Lashley vs. Lesnar at the WWE Royal Rumble. We see MVP and Lashley watching backstage when Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander approach, happy about The Hurt Business being back together. Lashley says the group is no more, he never said they were back together, and they can get the hell on because The All Mighty works alone. A disappointed Benjamin and Alexander walk off.

Heyman takes the mic and hypes Lesnar up. Lesnar takes the mic and gives a shout-out to Philadelphia, says he can’t believe we’re back, and then laughs. The music quickly interrupts and out comes Lashley with MVP. Lesnar looks on from the ring, holding the WWE Title over his shoulder. Lashley and MVP march to the ring now.

MVP takes the mic and says it’s his honor to present The All Mighty. Some fans boo and some cheer. Lashley takes the mic and says it’s an honor to finally be in the ring with Lesnar and an honor to share the spotlight with him. Lesnar laughs. Lashley says from one super athlete to another super athlete, it’s an honor to look Lesnar right in the eye and with all due respect, for 20 years, Lesnar has been ducking and running from him. Lesnar says with all due respect, it’s an honor for Lesnar to be in the ring with himself, and he must apologize, for the last 20 years he’s been winning titles in this ring and in other rings, so that doesn’t fall on him, that falls on Lashley. Lesnar doesn’t have a clue who Lashley is until he met him at Day 1, so it’s Lashley’s fault he didn’t climb the ladder of success and enter the same arenas Lesnar did. Lesnar must apologize because if they would’ve met, he would’ve already beaten Lashley and we wouldn’t be here right now, with all due respect. Lesnar says MVP and Lashley are dressed really fancy, and he asks the thread count on their suit.


Lashley laughs and says Lesnar must be a comedian. Lashley says at the Royal Rumble when he beats Lesnar for the WWE Title and Lesnar starts his stand-up comedy career, he and MVP will be front row because Lesnar is money as a comedian. Lesnar says he’s funny and he’s money. Lesnar does a knock-knock joke with Heyman and the punchline is “Bobby, who?” Exactly, Lesnar says. Lesnar says it’s impossible to beat him and even more impossible to beat him when you’re a Brock Lesnar wanna-be. Lesnar drops the mic and walks off as his music hits. He and Heyman exit the ring as Lashley and MVP stare him down.


Benjamin and Alexander suddenly attack Lashley from behind but he fights them off and clears the ring of Benjamin, then spikes Alexander into the mat. Lashley goes to ringside, scoops Benjamin and rams him into the ring post. Lashley grabs Alexander and launches him into the barrier, then runs him into the ring post. Lashley and MVP make their exit with Alexander and Benjamin laid out.

– We see recent happenings between Alpha Academy and RK-Bro. Randy Orton and Riddle are backstage now. They make a reference to Riddle’s WWE NXT appearance and Orton says he can do whatever he wants on his own time, but they lost last week because Riddle didn’t tag him in. Orton goes on and is about to give Riddle some advice in case he gets lost out there tonight, but Riddle interrupts with some of his comedy. Orton writes something on his hand, for in case he gets lost out there tonight. Riddle reads it and it says “Tag In Randy!” Orton says good job. Riddle suggests they go out for some cheesesticks after the big match, since they’re in Philly, and asks Orton if he’s a Pat’s or Geno’s kind of guy. It sounded like Riddle got cheese sticks confused with cheesesteaks. They head to the ring.

RK-Bro (C) vs. Alpha Academy – RAW Tag Team Championship

Orton ends up alone in the ring with Otis and Gable. He goes for an RKO on Gable, but he reverses right into a powerlsam by Otis, and that is enough to win Alpha Academy the tag titles.


Winners: Alpha Academy


Damian Priest backstage says he plans to upstage his debut last year by winning the Royal Rumble this year. He plans to still be United States Champion, and the only question is what the other title he will hold will be.

Priest is backstage with The Street Profits. He’s glad they have each other’s backs against Dirty Dawgs and Apollo.

Damian Priest and Street Profits vs. Dirty Dawgs and Apollo Crews

– We go back to the ring and out comes Seth Rollins. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and we see what happened earlier between Bobby Lashley and WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. We go back to the ring and Rollins has the mic. Rollins laughs and says he’s in a great mood tonight because the Royal Rumble is on the horizon. Why is Rollins so excited for The Rumble? Not because of Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley, not because of the 30-Man and 30-Woman Rumble Matches, but because it is the night where he will become the new WWE Universal Champion.

Rollins says that’s right, it will be The Visionary vs. The Tribal Chief, The Visionary vs. The Head of The Table, Brother vs. Brother, Roman Reigns vs. Seth Freakin’ Rollins. But how is that after Rollins was screwed out of his WWE Day 1 singles match with Big E, did he get an advocate or a special counsel? No. Rollins doesn’t need a penguin-looking snake oil salesman to do his job for him, he took matters into his own hands. He goes on and says a few things in life are certain – death, taxes and he will beat Reigns every time. The music interrupts and out comes Big E.


Big E says this is incredible news, he’s so excited and so thrilled for Rollins. Rollins wants to know why. Big E says Rollins is his favorite out of all the world title combatants at The Rumble. Big E announces that he is officially entering the Men’s Rumble and fans pop. Big E says of all the things he can dream or fantasize about, close to the top of the list is how he dreams about doing what he intended doing at Day 1, but doing it at The Show of Shows, WrestleMania 38, and that is… beating Rollins and walk out as world champion. Rollins laughs. Big E laughs with him. Rollins says Big E can dream all he wants. He’s happy Big E is in The Rumble but Big E doesn’t stand a chance at beating him one-on-one. Big E says they should test that theory out tonight. Fans agree. Rollins doesn’t know how he feels about that, he’s not ready. Fans boo. Rollins says maybe next week in a better town. Fans boo him some more. Big E says let’s not just do it tonight, let’s do it right now. Fans pop and Rollins says Big E put him on the spot and called him out. Rollins accepts the challenge and calls for a referee.

Seth “Freakin” Rollins vs. Big E

Rollins wins with the Curb Stomp.

Winner: Seth Rollins

– We get a promo for the 19 Superstars announced for the 30-Woman Royal Rumble Match so far.

Back from the break and Sarah Schreiber is in the ring with Nikki and Ripley. They want to make an announcement. Nikki says they’re here to challenge WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Carmella and Queen Zelina Vega to a rematch. Ripley says that’s not what they talked about, they were supposed to come out and discuss the Royal Rumble. Schreiber brings up speculation on the future of their tag team and asks if the team has run its course. Ripley says they’ve had their ups & downs but… Nikki interrupts and says of course it hasn’t. There’s tension between the two now. Nikki says they’re going to talk about the future of their team right now. She asks if Ripley is thinking of breaking up.

Ripley says they’ve had a great run but it’s time to go their separate ways. Niki says teaming brings out the best in each of them. Ripley says she’s probably right but she’s ready to venture out on her own. Nikki says if this is about the titles, they will get them back and… Ripley says it’s not about the titles. Nikki says Ripley thinks she’s better because Nikki got pinned last week. Ripley denies that but Nikki says she was thinking it. Nikki says she was doing Ripley a favor with this tag team. They continue having words and Ripley says she’s leaving because she doesn’t like where this is headed. Nikki yells at her for walking out. Ripley says no but Nikki is making her really uncomfortable, so let’s just say goodbye. Ripley offers her hand for a shake. Nikki says if Ripley doesn’t want to be her partner, fine, but she can’t shake her hand until Ripley looks her in the eye and says she still believes in her. Ripley has always believed in Nikki and always will, and hopes she doesn’t stop believing in herself and hopes they can continue being friends. Nikki gets emotional, and then asks if they really can still be friends.

Ripley hugs her and they embrace to mostly boos. They turn and Nikki goes to the ropes to pose for the crowd. Nikki comes back to Ripley but drops her with a shot to the face. Nikki unloads on Ripley and pounds on her to keep her down. Nikki leaves the ring and looks back, smiling at Ripley. She says almost superheroes don’t need any friends. Nikki poses on the entrance-way and is all smiles as fans boo her while Ripley tries to recover in the middle of the ring. We get a replay of the beatdown. Nikki poses some more as her music plays and Ripley looks on.

Back from the break and Edge mentions how tonight’s guest is his most curvaceous yet, who he will team with to take on The Miz and Maryse at the WWE Royal Rumble in two weeks. He goes on and introduces his wife, WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix. Out she comes to a pop. Edge talks up his wife and sends us to a video package with various Superstars commenting on The Glamazon. Beth addresses The Miz and Maryse, and how they will finally shut them up at The Rumble. The music interrupts and out comes The Miz and Maryse to the stage.

The Miz talks his wife up and sends us to a narrated video package with highlights from her career. The video package says Maryse and Miz will lay waste to Edge and Beth at The Rumble because together they are unbeatable. We come back and fans are booing Miz and Maryse. Miz rants to the crowd about how everyone should be honored to be in Maryse’s presence, and how Beth and Edge should be honored to be in the same ring as her. Edge says Maryse is a former champion and they respect her, and don’t want to take away from her career, but his wife can dead-lift a Buick and she smashes people. Edge says if he had to face his wife in the ring he’d have the same look as Maryse right now. Beth has a few words for Maryse and wonders why she’s suddenly quiet as a mouse now that Beth is back on RAW.

Beth says the time for apologies has come and gone, and she’s going to wreck Maryse at the Rumble. Miz yells back at them and then tells Maryse to tell Beth about how bad she’s going to get beat. Maryse walks off while Miz is running his mouth but he hasn’t seen this yet. Miz turns around and wonders where his wife is. Beth says if Maryse is too afraid to show up for their match at The Rumble, she will take great pleasure in knocking Miz’s teeth in. Edge’s music starts back up as Miz looks on from the stage.

– Kevin Patrick is backstage with Austin Theory. Theory says against AJ Styles tonight he has another chance to impress WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon.
