Who will Battle The Beast at Royal Rumble?
This past Monday night’s Raw main event should have decided Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship challenger at the 2018 Royal Rumble event on Sunday, Jan. 28. However, Braun Strowman and Kane’s hard-hitting bout quickly descended into chaos. Following a double count-out, neither Superstar emerged as The Beast’s challenger. So, who will rise to face The Conqueror?
Can Cedric Alexander Make the Most of His Second Chance?
After winning a “Second Chance” Fatal 4-Way Match this past Monday night on Raw, Cedric Alexander will now battle Drew Gulak on the forthcoming edition of Raw, with the winner of that contest going on to challenge Enzo Amore for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.
Will Hardy and The Eater of Words collide in physical combat, or will the bewildering tirades continue?
Absolution Put on Notice
Paige, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville gave Asuka a choice: Either she joins Absolution, or she becomes their enemy. The Empress of Tomorrow chose the latter, and soon fell victim to a three-on-one beatdown like so many Superstars before her.
Asuka, however, had backup. The entire Raw Women’s locker room soon emptied, with friend and foe alike — including Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss — emerging to end Absolution’s onslaught.
