Welcome to our coverage for Monday Night Raw for December 18.
Brock Lesnar returns to Monday Night Raw for the first time in a while. He returns to address the fact that he does not have an opponent for Royal Rumble 2018. Braun Strowman and Kane were supposed to settle their differences last week but things ended in a no contest again. Now Lesnar will address the two in what is likely to become a Triple Threat match at Royal Rumble.
Cedric Alexander and Drew Gulak will battle tonight to determine the new number one contender to Enzo Amore’s Cruiserweight Championship. This comes a week after Alexander earned the right to compete, following Rich Swann’s suspension. Enzo has been ridiculing Gulak for weeks, which leads me to believe Gulak will win and perhaps take a face turn prior to Royal Rumble.
Elsewhere on tonight’s show, Roman Reigns is in need of a new challenger for his Intercontinenal Championship, Absolution has been put on notice by the entire women’s division, and Matt Hardy continues his woken excellence. Remember to download the Ringside Talk app and enjoy the show!
