WWE Monday Night Raw Results – November 19, 2018

Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of Monday Night Raw!

Last night’s Survivor Series was quite the show; a mixed bag as it were. Raw’s “clean sweep” of SmackDown Live was surprising to say the least. According to WWE.com there will be celebrations on tonight’s episode of Raw, with Baron Corbin potentially getting the full-time GM role. That said, it’s hard to imagine the likes of Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre will just get along after last night. And something tells me Corbin should be on high alert. Braun Strowman is next in line for a title shot against Brock Lesnar, but that match probably won’t occur until the Royal Rumble. That means at TLC, we’re likely to see Strowman Vs. Corbin.

Charlotte Flair laid a serious beating on Ronda Rousey last night. She beat the WWE Women’s Champion to a pulp with a Kendo stick and a chair, and got plenty of cheers in the process. It will be interesting to see if WWE edits the audio to make it sound like Charlotte was booed. Regardless, Ronda’s next opponent is the loathed Nia Jax, which will take place at TLC, and therefore kick-start tonight.

Elsewhere, Seth Rollins will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Dean Ambrose at TLC next month. So far, Seth hasn’t gotten a chance to get his hands on Ambrose, but that may change tonight.

That’s the preview for tonight’s Raw. Let us know what your thoughts are by downloading the Ringside Talk app, the Ringside News app, and following us on Instagram! Enjoy the show!

Monday Night Raw

Monday Night Raw opens with the Acting General Manager Baron Corbin in the ring. Corbin welcomes us to the show, “the definitive A show”. He then introduces Stephanie McMahon to the arena.

Stephanie makes her way to the ring and says she’s proud of Raw beating SmackDown in a clean sweep last night. Of course, we know that isn’t true. She says it’s great that she beat her brother, and tonight will be a night of celebrations. Corbin says the celebrations can begin but first, they have a little formality to get to. Stephanie seems confused, so he says she promised his job would become permanent. She agrees she made some promises. Just then, they’re interrupted.

Braun Strowman comes to the ring and he doesn’t look happy. Strowman says last night, he did as Stephanie asked and didn’t attack Corbin, before he destroyed Team SmackDown Live. Now he wants a match with “this slimeball”. Stephanie reminds Corbin she did promise Strowman that match. So she says that Braun can face Corbin at TLC and, if Corbin wins, he will be the permanent General Manager. If he loses though, he has no power whatsoever, and Strowman will get a shot at Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble. Strowman agrees and says he gets to choose the stipulation, and he wants the TLC match itself. He tells Corbin he’s going to get these hands, tables, ladders, and chairs! Corbin says the stipulation suits him because Strowman can’t climb ladders and such, but Braun says he will mangle Corbin with steel.

Corbin says that’s all well and good, if he can make it to TLC. Because tonight he’s still Acting General Manager, so he wants to put Strowman in a match with Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley. Stephanie says she likes that idea, but seeing as this is a celebration, she wants to up the ante to a six-man tag match, and that match starts right now!
