Here are the full results for the first RAW of 2020.
We open the show with Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar.
Heyman wishes everyone a happy new year. Paul says Lesnar makes history, and he is wondering who will challenge Lesnar for the title at Royal Rumble. But Lesnar doesn’t believe there is anyone man enough to step in the ring with him. Heyman tells the crowd not to boo Brock because he’s going to make unprecedented history, just like when he ended Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak.
Paul announces that Brock Lesnar is entering the Royal Rumble match, and that he will be the first entrant. Heyman says he will win, and that it’s not a prediction, but a spoiler.
Rey Mysterio is speaking in Spanish backstage. He is asked how much the US Title match tonight means to him, and he says that it means a lot because he has days, not years left. He thanks his son for convincing him to stay and compete, and vows to win the title back, because Andrade doesn’t deserve to represent Latinos.
Andrade (C) vs. Rey Mysterio – United States Championship
Andrade flings Mysterio onto Zelina on the outside and expresses concern. The distraction allows Andrade to hit the Hammerlock DDT to retain the title.
After the match, Andrade removes Mysterio’s mask.
Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe are interviewed backstage. Owens says he’s proven that he doesn’t play well with others and Joe doesn’t play at all. However, he says the enemy of his enemy is his friend, and Rollins and AOP have brought the two together.
Joe says he recognizes that backup is needed, and he proposes Rollins and AOP against the three of them. Owens asks who this third man is. Joe says all KO should know is that they should be worried.
Rollins and AOP are made aware of the challenge made by KO and Joe. Seth says they don’t need to be briefed because they live for challenges. He says what he’s concerned about the most is taking RAW to the next level. He didn’t ask to be the chosen one, but WWE has made him just that. He sacrificed everything he stood for to be the missionary, Messiah and beacon of hope for RAW. He isn’t worried, and anyone who stands up to them will be taken care of by AOP.
The Viking Raiders (C) vs. The Street Profits vs. The OC – RAW Tag Team Championships

Samoa Joe is asked about the mystery partner, but Owens jumps in and says he’s eager to know who it is. KO would like to prepare for who it is since he’s done a lot of bad things to people. Joe asks if it would make KO feel better if he showed him. Owens says yes. Joe and Owens walk to the back and Charly follows them.
They walk to the back, and Owens goes in the door and comes back out. He says AOP are definitely in trouble. Joe locks the door and tells Charly she’ll have to wait.
Becky Lynch comes out. She says she’s been wondering what kind of champion she wants to be and admits she let the doubters get to her, and she’s questioning her wisdom of challenging Asuka. We get a video package recapping Asuka’s victories over Becky over the past year. Asuka comes out and speaks in Japanese before Becky knocks her out.
Rowan is walking backstage and is approached by Mojo Rawley. He asks for a look inside the cage. Rowan says help himself, but not to tell anyone. Mojo looks inside and he is shook.

Lashley says Rusev isn’t a man and lays down a challenge. Rusev says he destroys and when he’s finished with Lashley, Lana can have what’s left.
