Welcome to Monday Night Raw for January 8th 2018!

We’re less than three weeks away from the 2018 Royal Rumble and things are finally heating up. Tonight’s Raw will feature the return of The Miz, who may be looking to claim back his WWE Intercontinental Championship from Roman Reigns. The Big Dog took the title from Miz and then put him through an announce table and the A-Lister has not been seen since. Well, Roman is on the lookout for a new challenger after dispatching Samoa Joe last week, and isn’t it perfect timing for The Miz to make his return.

Elsewhere on tonight’s Raw, Enzo Amore returns and will immediately defend his Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander. This match was supposed to take place on last week’s Raw but Enzo Amore was legitimately in the hospital for unknown reasons and was banned from competing that night by WWE officials. That means we get the match tonight and fans are hungry to see Enzo lose his title, however I don’t see it happening tonight. Let us know if you think Cedric will dethrone Enzo!

Also, WOKEN Matt Hardy will make his in-ring debut tonight, as well as Braun Strowman and Kane competing in one-upsmanship, and how will Alexa Bliss respond to being beaten by Asuka last week? All that and more to look forward to. Remember to download the free Ringside News or Talk app’s and let us know what you’re thinking. Enjoy the show!


Monday Night Raw opens with a look back at last week’s Raw with Roman Reigns defeating Samoa Joe to retain the Intercontinental Championship.

We go live to the arena in Memphis Tennessee, and out comes The Big Dog, Roman Reigns! The Champion gets a mixed reception on his way to the ring while the commentators talk about his impressive reign thus far.

Roman doesn’t speak fr a minute, letting the crowd build some noise. “After all the attacks, after all the talk, after all the hype, you’d think Samoa Joe would be ready for me. But he wasn’t.” Roman goes on to say that he beat Joe and not because he’s better, but because he had a purpose: to avenge Dean Ambrose. Reigns sends a message to the locker room: if you mess with one member of The Shield, you mess with all of them. He tries to turn his attention forward but he’s interrupted by a familiar face.

The fans don’t really like Jordan. He says he got goosebumps watching Reigns Vs. Joe last week. He says it was the first time in his life he felt like he was part of something meaningful. It’s like Roman said, if you mess with one of them, you mess with all of them. Jordan says that on behalf of he and Seth, he wants to say thank you and he puts his fist forward for The Shield pose. Seth Rollins interrupts and makes his way to the ring. Rollins says Jordan has a lot to learn. Last week, he taught Jordan a lesson on teamwork, which worked. This week they have to work on his timing. Rollins knows Jordan means well, but he’s stepping on Reigns’ moment. Jordan says they’ve all had problems with Joe, and Reigns took care of it, just like they took care of The Bar. Now they run the show. Reigns says he’s had enough of this “we” stuff. Jordan is on a team with Seth, but he’s THE guy. Jordan says they’re all champions and can take everyone out. They’re not The Shield, but they’re pretty good. They might be the most dominant three-man group in all of WWE.

Finn Balor’s music hits, and he makes his way to the stage alongside Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. The Balor Club is back. Balor says he knows Jordan is excited to be a part of something big, but he’s not really a part of the most dominant three-man group in WWE. Balor says he’s run with Gallows and Anderson for ten years before Jordan knew Kurt Angle was his dad. Another “Who’s your daddy” chant starts up. Anderson says they’re been running with “good brother” Finn for a long time. If you go to the WWE Network, there is a special all about it. Gallows says when Balor came to WWE, they knew it was time to stand alone. They won the RAW Tag Team Championships, and Balor made history by becoming the first ever WWE Universal Champion. Balor and Gallows do the “too sweet” hand signal. Anderson says they did their own things, but they eventually knew they’d come together and take this place over. The group talk as they walk down the ramp.

The Balor Club get in the ring. Balor says that day was last Monday on RAW. Just like Jordan, they’re excited because 2018 is the year of the Balor Club. Jordan laughs at the name. Jordan says he’s happy to be a part of the champion’s club. Reigns and Rollins shake their heads in sadness. Balor says that must be a cute name for The Shield, but The Lunatic Fringe isn’t here. They see The Architect and The Big Dog, and now they see the… NERD! Jordan slaps Gallows in the face. Their respective teams hold them each back.

RAW General Manager Kurt Angle comes out to the stage. They have a great show planned with Brock Lesnar and The Miz’ return, but he just found his main event. Angle says he’d love to see who would win this match. It’ll be Reigns, Rollins, and Jordan taking on The Balor Club in tonight’s main event. Oh it’s true! It’s damn true!

Later tonight, Brock Lesnar will respond to the situation with Kane last week, and we’ll have an edition of Miz TV with the returning Miz. However, Bayley and Sasha Banks will be in action, with Mickie James in their corner, next.

*Commercial Break*

We return from the break and The Boss, Sasha Banks comes to the ring first, followed by Bayley and Mickie James. Their opponents, Absolution, are out second. The worst way to build a feud is to have the match repeatedly on TV, and that’s why nobody cares about this one.

Sasha Banks & Bayley W/Mickie James Vs. Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville W/Paige

Mandy Rose starts against Bayley, first time I’ve seen Sonya Deville without her MMA-inspired cornrows. They lock up, and Bayley hooks a side headlock. Rose whips her off and shoulder blocks her down. Rose hits the ropes and catches Bayley trying a leapfrog before throwing her to the corner. Bayley turns her around and stomps her. Rose then turns her and forearms away at her chest. Bayley kicks her back, but Rose fights back with a nice scoop slam for a two count.

Rose applies a neck vice and keeps Bayley grounded for a minute. Bayley fights up, but Rose takes her down by the hair. Bayley then comes back with a clothesline. Rose quickly gets up and knees her in the midsection. Bayley then takes her down with a back suplex and a knee to the head. Absolution pulls Rose out of the ring to regroup as we head to the break.

*Commercial Break*

We come back from the break to see Rose slam Banks down by the hair. Banks sends her into the ropes and hits a hip toss. Banks then hits a double knee for a two count. Rose chops the chest and forearms her back. Rose shoves her a few times, so Banks slaps her in the face. Banks lands some forearms and knocks Deville off the apron. Rose then takes her down with a Triple H-esque running knee for a near fall.

Sonya Deville is tagged in, and she punches Banks to the corner before stomping her. Deville applies a body scissor and hooks the head for good measure. Banks gets out with an elbow, but Deville quickly stops her with a punch to the midsection. Deville punches away at her. Rose tags in, but Banks fights back. Rose quickly stops the momentum and chokes her on the ropes. Rose attacks the back a few times before tagging Deville in, who picks up a two count. Banks tries to make a comeback, but Deville stops her with some punches. Deville sends her into the ropes, but she lowers her head and eats a kick. They then wipe each other out with a double clothesline.

Rose is tagged in, and she stops Banks from making a tag. Rose then punches Bayley off the apron. The referee holds Bayley back while the illegal Deville snaps Banks off the top rope. Banks retaliates by catching Rose with an inside cradle, but Deville breaks it up. Bayley knocks Deville out of the ring. Inside the ring, Banks catches Mandy with the Bank Statement and Rose taps out!

Winners: Sasha Banks & Bayley W/Mickie James

The babyfaces celebrate the win after the match. As much as I couldn’t stand her back on Tough Enough, Mandy Rose impresses the heck out of me when she’s in the ring.

Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Jason Jordan will face The Balor Club in tonight’s main event.

*Commercial Break*

We return to a 25 Years of Raw moment, and this one is the time Mankind visited Vince McMahon in the hospital, only for Doctor Steve Austin to appear and beat on McMahon with a bed pan. The 25th anniversary show is in two weeks!

We take a look back at last week’s Raw when Kane and Brock Lesnar went toe-to-toe. The Beast will be here later tonight to talk.

The commentators talk about tonight’s Cruiserweight Championship match, and also take a look back at last week when Goldust teamed with Cedric Alexander. Backstage, Alexander is warming-up when Goldust appears and imitates Mickey from ‘Rocky’. Alexander says he doesn’t need help because he’s dreamt of this since he was a kid. Goldust says there’s nothing that can stop Alexander from taking what is his. Goldust tries to impersonate Mickey again but it hurts his throat. Back to the announce table, Michael Cole talks about the Facebook Mixed Match Challenge. We see a Facebook video from earlier today with Goldust applying his make-up, only for his Mixed Match partner Alicia Fox to surprise him. The commentators talk some more about the new show and the different teams. The show will start one week from tomorrow, right after SmackDown Live on Facebook Watch.

WOKEN Matt Hardy makes his way to the ring and he has the weirdest theme music I think I’ve ever heard. Hardy will be in action after the break.

*Commercial Break*

We return and Hardy’s opponent, Curt Hawkins, is already in the ring. We get a pre-taped promo from Hardy in which he says he will DELETE 29 other combatants in the Royal Rumble. Then he will head to WrestleMania and, with the help of his WOKEN Warriors, he will become King of the Multiverse.

Matt Hardy Vs. Curt Hawkins

Hawkins tries to stay away from Hardy before kicking him with a cheap shot. Hardy bites his hands to pry them off his face, then punches away at him in the corner. Hardy elbows him in the neck and hits a neckbreaker. Hardy clubs him and hits a German Suplex into the turnbuckles.

Hawkins elbows him back and goes for a springboard cross-body, but Hardy moves. Hardy then bounces him off the turnbuckles before clotheslining him in the corner. Hardy hits a Side Effect before connecting with a Twist of Fate for the win.

Winner: Matt Hardy

Bray Wyatt’s video flashes, and the lights go out. It flashes again, and Bray Wyatt is standing behind Hardy in the ring. Hardy turns and stares at Wyatt. Hardy then laughs wildly and says, “YES!” Wyatt starts laughing, and they’re engaged in a laugh-off. This goes on for way too long before we head to commercial.

After the break, Miz TV returns to grace us all!

*Commercial Break*

Elias is in the ring on a stool. Elias plays a riff, and the crowd gives him a hand. The former Drifter asks Memphis “who wants to walk with Elias?” He has walked all across this earth and heard a lot of stories, but one truth always remains the same: WWE stands for Walk With Elias. The crowd shouts it along with him. Today is a very special day and there is no better place to celebrate this than Memphis. Elias acknowledges Elvis Presley’s birthday, and the crowd boos it for some strange reason. Elias then sings a mostly nice song about Memphis before saying he doesn’t care about any of it. A star is on the way that is taking over the entertainment business. Elias asks them to welcome The Miz. That gets a great reception from Tennessee.

The Miz’ music hits, and he makes his entrance, returning to WWE after a six week hiatus. The Miztourage is at his side. A “Welcome back” chant fires up. Miz asks if they missed him, and they loudly cheer. Miz says he’s back, but he wasn’t forgotten. Miz is the glue that holds Monday Night RAW together. Miz makes this show “must see.” Mostly he wasn’t forgotten because of two people, his guests at this time: Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel, The Miztourage. They turned their careers around in 2017. After sitting under the learning tree, they are living embodiments of a New Years’ Resolution done right. Axel thanks Miz. Dallas says Miz’ wisdom is like winning The Mizzies every single day. Dallas and Axel start a “Thank you Miz” chant. Dallas got Miz a framed photo of him. Dallas says it’ll be tough to sleep without that tonight. Miz seems weirded out. Axel then takes off his coat and gives it to The Miz. Dallas takes off his watch and gives it to The Miz. Axel takes off his shoes, and they’re competing to give Miz the better gift. Miz raises his hand and tells them both to shut-up.

Miz says 2017 was an incredible year for him, but he has a lot more planned. In 2017, he held the Intercontinental Championship for 200 days, elevated The Miztourage’s career, and held up this show. Everything he touched turned to gold. Hell, he’s Rollins Stone’s Superstar of the Year. Still, he hasn’t forgotten about this: a replay is shown of The Shield viciously attacking Miz and giving him a Triple Powerbomb through the commentary table to take him out for six weeks. Miz says that was an indignity not befitting someone who has done so much for WWE. Miz let Roman Reigns borrow the Intercontinental Championship, but the title doesn’t make the champion. The champion makes the title, and Daddy’s home.

In 2018, he’ll celebrate the birth of his daughter and in 2018 he will become the longest reigning, single greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time. When children grow up in this generation, they’ll think of him with the title like Ultimate Warrior and Shawn Michaels before him, but now he’ll be the only person they think of. Miz hopes Reigns enjoyed the spotlight he allowed him to have. It’s all coming to an end. He’s back and is coming for the title. Reigns can believe that.

Finn Balor is talking with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows. The Good Brothers are talking about Japan but Finn says tonight is not about reminiscing; they need to talk strategy. Anderson explains that the situation may be different, but the tactics remain the same. They have an opportunity to show everyone that 2018 is the year of the Balor Club. They do the Too Sweet.

Later tonight, we’ll hear from WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. Coming up next, Enzo Amore will defend his WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Cedric Alexander.

*Commercial Break*

We return and out comes the Cruiserweight Champion, Enzo Amore. Last week, the doctors said he couldn’t compete, which makes that the luckiest day in Cedric Alexander’s life. Enzo was in the hospital for New Year’s Day with chicken soup and a soda. Enzo watched RAW with Nia Jax last week and saw Cedric Alexander teaming with Goldust. That’s the closest he’ll get to gold in 2018. There’s only one word to describe Alexander: S-A-W-F-T!

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match

(C) Enzo Amore Vs. Cedric Alexander

The bell rings, and Enzo quickly puts himself through the ropes to keep Alexander back. Alexander then takes him down with a right hand. Enzo looks surprised and gets out of the ring. Enzo says Alexander doesn’t deserve to be in the ring with him. Alexander chases Enzo into the ring and kicks him in the head. Nia Jax is seen watching backstage. Alexander pulls Enzo to the center of the ring, but Enzo quickly crawls out. Alexander grabs him and goes to the second rope, but Enzo shoves him off the turnbuckles to the floor.

*Commercial Break*

We come back from the break to see Alexander trapped in a chin lock. Alexander fights up, but Enzo takes him down down quickly. Alexander fights up and runs him into the turnbuckles. Enzo quickly boots him down for a two count. Enzo continues to attack before coming off the second rope, but Alexander dropkicks him out of mid-air. Alexander makes a comeback culminating with a handspring kick for a near fall.

Enzo’s eye is busted open bad and he’s bleeding pretty bad – makes Alexander’s handspring kick look pretty devastating. Enzo holds the ropes to prevent a Lumbar Check. Alexander knees him in the face and hits a springboard clothesline, but Enzo rolls out of the ring. Alexander hits him with a summersault senton and actually lands on Enzo’s ankle. Enzo grabs his ankle in pain and may be legitimately hurt. The referee counts Enzo out.

Winner Via Count-Out: Cedric Alexander

The count-out result means Enzo retains his Cruiserweight Championship. The doctors are checking on Enzo and we see Nia Jax watching the monitor backstage and she looks concerned for Enzo.

We get another commercial for the Raw 25th Anniversary show, which will feature Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Triple H, The Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin!! Weirdly enough, The Bella Twins were listed along with those names as legends…

*Commercial Break*

We return and see Enzo in the trainers room and he won’t let them touch his ankle. Nia Jax walks in and asks how he’s doing and he says fine. She leaves and he screams in pain.

Kurt Angle is on the phone in his office when in walk The Bar. Sheamus says he doesn’t get it, why is Jason Jordan booked in a prominent match again tonight. Cesaro says it’s favouritism, and asks if they will get a rematch or not. Angle says they will get that opportunity at the Royal Rumble. The Bar’s attitude changes and now they’re happy. Sheamus asks if they can compete tonight, to which Angle tells them to head to the ring now. The Miz walks in and re-introduces himself to Angle. He talks about having an unscripted TV show on the USA network, in which both he and Maryse will star. He asks if Kurt knows how to run a show and says he can prove that if he gives him a shot at Roman Reigns title at the 25th Anniversary show. Angle likes the idea and says he will have it.

We see a video of The Miz finding out who his Mixed Tag Match partner is…Asuka! He is incredibly happy that she is his partner because she’s undefeated. The Mixed Match Challenge begins next Tuesday on Facebook Watch.

Asuka is backstage stretching when in walks Alexa Bliss. Asuka stiffens but Asuka stops her and says that she should enjoy this while it lasts, because Nia Jax will have something to say.

The Bar make their way to the ring for tag team action.

*Commercial Break*

The Bar vs. Titus O’Neil & Apollo Crews W/Dana Brooke

The Bar squares off against Titus Worldwide. Cesaro is in the ring with Apollo Crews, who takes him down with a dropkick and a standing moonsault for a two count. Sheamus tags in, and he pulls the top rope down to get Crews out of the ring. Sheamus attacks Crews and gets him in the ring before tagging in Cesaro. Cesaro attacks the knee and punches him down. Cesaro then applies a chin lock. Sheamus tags in, and they hit a double-team clothesline. Sheamus drops a knee for a two count. Sheamus then applies an overhead wristlock. Crews fights up and rolls Sheamus up for a two count. Crews then sends him shoulder-first into the ring post.

Cesaro and O’Neil are tagged in. O’Neil clotheslines Cesaro and avalanches Sheamus. O’Neil clotheslines Cesaro and gives him a big boot. O’Neil avalanches Cesaro and slams him down for a two count. O’Neil is distracted by Sheamus, so Cesaro uppercuts him. Sheamus knees O’Neil in the face and is tagged in. Crews shoulders Cesaro out of the ring and avoids a Brogue Kick by giving Cesaro a moonsault off the apron. O’Neil then rolls Sheamus up for the win!

Winners: Titus O’Neil & Apollo Crews

Crews, O’Neil and Brooke can’t believe it after the fact, and neither can Sheamus and Cesaro. What a win for Titus Worldwide.

Brock Lesnar will be out after the break.

*Commercial Break*

WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar makes his way to the ring with his advocate, Paul Heyman. Heyman and Lesnar believe in old school, but they’re not building up this Universal Championship match in an old school way. This is a progressive industry, but they’ve gotten away from the way they used to build a star. He saysit used to be a sole challenger, one who earned his shot and thinks he can best represent the company. That’s not how it is now. Last week, Lesnar took Kane’s best shot and laughed. There is only one cliffhanger in mind: will Brock Lesnar pin Kane or Strowman or stack them on top of each other and pin them both? This is the most dominant champion in the history of WWE. Heyman has yet to see anyone out there that can beat and put down Lesnar. The Beast and his advocate leave the ring.

They reach the stage and Kane attacks Lesnar from behind and punches away at him. Lesnar tries to fight back, and they spill to the backstage area. Braun Strowman thenappears  wipes them both out. Strowman throws Lesnar into some crates and through a table – Lesnar jumped like a madman. Strowman picks up a road case and hits Kane with it before slamming it on him. Strowman then gets a grappling hook, yes a grappling hook, and throws it onto a metal lighting rig (like 20 feet tall), and pulls it down onto Kane and Lesnar! Heyman screams in horror, while Strowman throws up his arms and roars before walking off.

*Commercial Break*

We return and see relays of the insanity we just witnessed. We see footage of Lesnar crawling from the metal lighting rig and onto a stretcher. Then Kane is shown crawling from under it as well. Lesnar is escorted to an ambulance, whereas Kane just gets up and walks off. We can hear Lesnar shouting from the ambulance that he doesn’t want to go to the hospital but Heyman joins him and they leave.

Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring to a good reception. His opponent, Rhyno is out next with Heath Slater by his side, this match takes place after the break.

*Commercial Break*

Samoa Joe Vs. Rhyno

The bell rings, and they circle the ring before locking up. Joe punches away at him before backing up. Rhyno comes back with some right hands before having a whip to the corner reversed on him. Joe hits a running elbow followed by a snap kick to the head. Joe chops the chest, but Rhyno comes back with some chops. Joe quickly takes him down and talks trash to Slater. Joe hits some crossfaces before chopping the chest and kicking him.

Joe chops Rhyno before headbutting him. Rhyno chops him back and sends him to the ropes, but he lowers his head and eats a kick. Joe catches him with an STO for a near fall. Joe hits an inverted atomic drop followed by a big boot and a senton splash for another near fall. Joe continues to punch him before Rhyno goes for a slam. Joe slides off and applies the Coquina Clutch for the win.

Winner: Samoa Joe

Charly Caruso comes into the ring with Samoa Joe. She says this win can’t take the sting away from Roman Reigns’ victory. Joe says Reigns’ win was a pyrrhic victory. It’s a victory that comes at such a great cost it might as well be a loss. Joe has beaten years off Reigns’ career. The cracks are forming. When it comes tumbling down, he’ll be there to finish the job. Until that time, he’ll pursue more worthy things. Tonight, he announces his entrance and participation in the Royal Rumble match. She asks how he’ll match-up against 29 other superstars and legends like Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura, and John Cena. Joe says when it comes to his career, John Cena is a name that he’ll never forget. In the Royal Rumble, he’ll be the first man he eliminates. Always love Joe’s promo’s because of his intensity, and I’ve been dying to see Joe Vs. Cena for years, so hopefully this is the path to that.

Alexa Bliss comes up to Nia Jax and is worried about Enzo Amore holding her back. She says Enzo isn’t holding her back. Nia says she’ll be in the Royal Rumble. Bliss says she’s the favorite. Maybe she can eliminate Asuka to ensure her victory. Jax says they’re on a collision course anyway. Bliss says Asuka was talking badly about Jax but won’t say what it was. Eventually Jax gets her to spill the proverbial beans. Jax then asks Alexa if she speaks Japanese, “because Asuka doesn’t speak English” and walks off.

*Commercial Break*

We return and out comes the Empress of Tomorrow, Asuka! She makes her away to the ring for a match but as she poses on the ropes, Nia Jax attacks! Jax first catches her with the electric chair drop, then a running senton. Jax smiles and the crowd cheer her name before she leaves.

Michael Col,e Corey Graves and Booker T run down the card for the Royal Rumble, which happens in three weeks. Cole says it’s “more Rumble than ever”.

Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Jason Jordan are shown preparing backstage. They’ll face The Balor Club, next!

*Commercial Break*

We return and the commentators say that you can vote between Samoa Joe, Elias and Jason Jordan as Bayley’s partner for the Mixed Match Challenge.

The Club and Finn Balor are out first. Seth Rollins is out next, followed by Jason Jordan and Roman Reigns.

Seth Rollins, Jason Jordan & Roman Reigns Vs. The Balor Club

We’re starting the match with Finn Balor and Seth Rollins. They circle each other before locking-uop and Finn immediately takes Seth to the mat with a headlock.

Anderson locks-in an armbar and holds it in the centre of the ring.

Reigns and Jordan argue in the ring before Jordan leaves the ring. Jordan checks on Seth Rollins, when suddenly The Miz and The Miztourage attack him from behind. Jordan is launched into the barricade and Reigns and Rollins are beaten down inside the ring. Miz hits Reigns with a Skull Crushing Finale.
