WWE Monday Night Raw Results – November 19, 2018

Charly Caruso is backstage with Seth Rollins again. She asks for an update and Rollins says Ambrose took it too far by bringing up Roman Reigns’ situation. When he gets his hands on Ambrose, he will make him wonder why he ever turned. Titus O’Neil comes out and says he just saw Dean Ambrose run thataway. Rollins runs off.

Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring and she’s smiling wide, despite what happened last night. The crowd chants, “Becky,” and Rousey looks disappointed. Rousey is covered in bruises. Rousey mentions she’ll defend her title at WWE TLC against Nia Jax. She’s aware of how dangerous Jax is. Just look what she did to Becky’s face. At TLC, she’ll tap out Nia Jax. When she’s done with Jax, the next chapter of Rousey versus Charlotte Flair will be written. They’ll finish what they started last night.

Rousey isn’t here to pose and look for sympathy. She wants to show them what a true champion is. A true champion doesn’t choose when to fight. A true champion stands on guard in sickness and health. You have to be the best in the world on your worst day. Another “Becky” chant fires up. Rousey takes off her jacket and says this is her on her worst day. They zoom in on Rousey’s welts. Rousey wants to defend the title tonight. If she can’t, she doesn’t deserve to be champion.

Baron Corbin’s music hits, and he comes out to boos from the crowd. Corbin denies her request for a title match. As Acting General Manager, he cannot allow her to compete tonight in good conscience. Rousey says she’s had 17 fights in her career and never pulled out or postponed any of them. She’s had plenty of reasons to do so, but she never did because that’s what it takes to be the baddest bitch on the planet. Rousey orders him to go back there and find a challenger for her title… or maybe Corbin wants a shot at the champ. A “YES” chant picks up. Corbin wishes Rousey luck. Corbin says he’ll go back there and find a challenger. He says whomever he chooses will be the next RAW Women’s Champion.

We’re back from the break and Dean Ambrose makes his way to the ring – booed loudly all the way there. Ambrose says it was too easy.
