WWE RAW Results – December 10, 2018

We come back from the break and get replays of the open of tonight’s show, Natalya and Ruby Riott, Dolph Ziggler Vs. Drew McIntyre, as well as Bobby Roode & Chad Gable winning the Tag Team Championships.

We see Heath Slater backstage, upset. Baron Corbin comes in and tells him he did a good job. Slater starts to take off the shirt and says he’s going home. But Corbin tells him no, he has another match to referee tonight.

Out comes Alexa Bliss. She goes to speak but is interrupted by Nia Jax’s music. Jax and Tamina make their way to the ring. She says before this gets going, she wants to make a statement. On Sunday, she will become the new Women’s Champion. And that will come at the expense of Ronda Rousey. She says getting beat with gloves in UFC has made Ronda slow. She says if Ronda had any sense left, she would come out now and hand-in her belt to avoid a beating on Sunday. She says she doesn’t need to talk trash to build-up a fight, that’s because she’s a 6ft Samoan woman. And she will beat Ronda, with the same fist that broke Becky Lynch. This time though, she won’t stop punching until Ronda taps out. Nia says she isn’t stupid, she is a strategist. She says she knows Ronda has been a Champion every where she went, so if Ronda gets a hold of her arm, she will simply pry her off and punch her in the face. She screams into microphone about taking her title back and then Ronda finally interrupts.

Rousey starts talking on her way to the ring. She says she didn’t come here to talk or pose, she came here to fight. Ronda storms the ring and Nia, Tamina, and Bliss leave. Tamina and Nia surround Ronda on the apron but then Ember Moon comes out to Ronda’s aid. Ember will face one of them, next!

Ember Moon W/Ronda Rousey Vs.Tamina W/Nia Jax

We return to see the match in progress. Moon gets Tamina out of the ring, and Jax approaches her. Rousey gets near her and intimidates her. Moon goes for a springboard, but Tamina superkicks her out of mid-air. Moon falls out of the ring, Ronda checks on her, and she gets back in. Tamina applies a chin lock, but Moon fights up. Tamina powers her down and keeps the chin lock applied.

Moon fights up while the fans stamp their feet, but Tamina takes her right back down. Moon avoids an avalanche and kicks her back. Moon kicks away at Tamina and sweeps the feet. Moon hits a reverse STO for a near fall. Tamina quickly slams her down for a two count. Moon hits a Codebreaker and gets to the top rope. Jax climbs to the apron to distract Ember. Rousey pulls Jax off the apron and throws her over the barricade and into the crowd. Moon knocks Tamina off the top rope and hits the Eclipse for the win.

Winner: Ember Moon

Rousey and Moon celebrate! Rousey will face Jax on Sunday, at TLC!

Seth Rollins will take on Baron Corbin in a TLC Match with the WWE Intercontinental Championship on the line in tonight’s main event.

*Commercial Break*

We return to see Baron Corbin in his office. Charly Caruso comes in to interview him, and asks if him facing Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship is abuse of power. Corbin says that kind of question could get her shipped to SmackDown Live. He says it isn’t an abuse of power, because Seth challenged him. And if he didn’t accept, the fans wouldn’t get to see him swing a chair or climb a ladder – because on Sunday he will beat Braun Strowman via forfeit. Charly says there are rumours that Braun may appear at TLC. Corbin laughs and says Braun is the one-armed man because of him. So after Sunday, we’ll all be saying “all hail Corbin”.

The announcers rundown the entire TLC card, happening this Sunday. Corbin will face Seth Rollins, next!

*Commercial Break*

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring first and stares at the title suspended above the ring. Corbin is out second and we get ring introductions for both men.
