Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage for WWE Raw on December 2nd.
We’re still a few weeks away from WWE TLC and it seems like WWE is still putting the pieces together for the PPV. We say that because tonight’s Raw appears real light on content or planning, at least based on the preview revealed by WWE.
The only announced match for tonight sees Charlotte face both Kairi Sane and Asuka tonight in a handicap match, but it seems highly likely Becky Lynch will come out and help her at some point.
Also tonight, Seth Rollins will apologise to the WWE Universe and the locker room for his actions last week…or so he says. Rollins turned full heel last week and it was a breath of fresh air, so tonight should see that downturn continue for the architect.
And that’s the tiny preview for tonight’s WWE Raw. Sometimes the less the company announced the more intruging the show is, so let’s hope that’s the case tonight. Remember to follow us on Instagram and Twitter, and download the free Ringside News app. Enjoy the show!
Monday Night Raw opens with Charly Caruso in the parking lot and up pulls a black van. Akam and Rezar step out and Charly stops them to asky why they attacked Kevin Owens last week. They respond in Albanian and Punjabi, then say she looks lovely and walk off.

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring. The architect recounts what happened last week, when he brought the Raw roster out and berated everyone. He once again says everybody sucked but that was too harsh. He says it was coming from a good place, his heart, because this isn’t just a job, it’s his life. And the people in the back aren’t just his co-workers, they are his family. As the head of the family, he feels it is his job to motivate the locker room and get the best from everyone…but he may have gone overboard. So he wants to apologise.
Rollins apologises to the fans, who just boo him in response. Rollins apologises to the Raw locker room, specifically Kevin Owens, then asks Owens to come to the ring so he can apologise face-to-face.Kevin Owens comes out and joins Seth in the ring. Owens asks the fans if they can smell BS? He asks if the closest members of his so-called family are the AOP? Seth says he had nothing to do with it and he’s sorry. Owens says he knows Seth is lying because his lips are moving.
Akam and Rezar are out next, in suits, and start talking in Punjabi and Albanian, while the fans “What?” them. Finally, they ask if Rollins and Owens want to team-up to face them tonight. Rollins says he can’t speak for KO but he’s in. Owens says that one of three things can happen, and all of them end with the three of them beat the crap out of him. So let’s get that over with now. Rollins holds his hands up and says he tried, that Owens is on his own. Seth drops his mic and leaves up the ramp. He comes face-to-face with AOP and they step aside to let him through.
Owens tells Akam and Rezar to come down and fight him but instead, they walk to the back. Owens continues on and says that he’s in the ring and he’s ready to go, so why not someone indulge him? We see Bobby Lashley and Lana walking in the back, he’s seemingly going to answer the call.
We’re back and out comes Lana. She says Monday Night Raw is all about her, then poses. Owens yells “no-one cares”. Lana tries to talk but he shouts “I’m vomiting in my mouth right now”. She says Rusev won’t be here tonight because she’s filed another restraining order. She says Rusev is a danger to her and society, so if he shows-up today he will go to jail for a long time. Owens says that it’s incredible how she can speak so much and say so little. He says she is beautiful on the outside but vile on the inside, to which she says he is as basic as every other man. Lana says the Almighty will come out and finish-off KO, which he welcomes. Two police follow behind them to the ring.
Bobby Lashley W/Lana Vs. Kevin Owens
Lashley and Owens lock-up and Bobby shoves Owens into the corner. Lashley drops KO with a shoulder, then tackles him in the corner. Owens kicks him back, then runs into a spinebuster. Lashley throws Owens from the ring and goes after him but gets tripped on the apron and Owens hits a senton on the floor.
Back live and Owens squishes Lashley with a cannonball in the corner for a two-count. Owens looks for a springboard moonsault but nobody’s home. Bobby follows-up with a big lariat, then unleashes some ground and pound. Lashley hits Owens with a shoulder in the corner but gets caught with a superkick when looking for another.
Owens looks for the Stunner but Lashley counters into a neckbreaker for a two-count. Bobby hits a side-roll dominator for a near-fall. Lashley grabs Owens in the full nelson but KO elbows himself free and hits a pop-up powerbomb. Akam and Rezar stomp down to the ring and beat on Owens.
Winner Via Disqualification: Kevin Owens
AOP drag Owens to the outside and slam him into the barricade, while Lashley moves Lana around out of danger. Owens tries to fight back on the ramp but gets beaten down. They literally drag him to the back.

Charly Caruso is in the ring with Bobby Lashley and Lana. Charly asks about AOP’s attack on Kevin Owens and the Almighty says he was about to beat Owens again. Lana says she’s tired of the crowd booing them. Rusev runs in the ring from the crowd and drops Lashley with a Matcha Kick. The security gets in the ring, but Rusev runs off as a “Rusev Day” chant begins.
Charly Caruso has come down to the ringside and she holds a microphone up as Lashley berates the police offers. They say they do things differently in Tennessee and Lashley shoves him out of the way. The officer then grabs Lashley and arrests him while the other reads him his rights. Lana screams at them that they’re only dong this because they’re fans of Rusev, then slaps one of them. The officer then cuffs Lana and walks them both to the back!
We see a clip from the commercial, in which Lana and Lashley were put on a squad car and taken away.
Drew McIntyre Vs. Akira Tozawa
The bell rings and they come face-to-face to show the huge size difference. Tozawa takes Drew’s back but the Scotsman turns the tables and slams him with ease. McIntyre drops to his knees and holds his fists up, then tells him to leave or he will beat his ass. Tozawa turns to leave but then hits a dropkick.
Tozawa knocks McIntyre from the ring then hits a suicide dive. McIntyre shoves Tozawa off his feet, then hits an inverted Alabama Slam on the floor. Drew throws Akira into the ring and applies a rear chinlock. McIntyre chops the chest of Tozawa before hitting a massive overhead suplex. Tozawa dropkicks Drew’s knee, then hits an enziguiri and a missile dropkick.
Tozawa looks for an inverted hurricanrana but Drew stays on his feet. McIntyre looks for the inverted Alabama Slam but Tozawa rolls through for a pin attempt but Drew kicks out. Both men hit the ropes but McIntyre turns Tozawa inside out with a Claymore Kick for the win.
Winner: Drew McIntyre

After the match, McIntyre says “that was fun, wasn’t it Nashville?” The fans cheer. Drew says that the problem with people nowadays is that they don’t confront each other. Instead they take their problems to social media and talk cryptically because they’re cowards. Not him though, he likes to be direct. So he’s calling out Randy Orton, right now!
