WWE Raw Results – January 13, 2020

Welcome to Ringside News’ live results for WWE Raw on January 13th.

Tonight’s Raw is set to be one that aims to settle the grudges currently running the show. First and foremost, Seth Rollins and his goons will face Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe, and The Big Show in a fist fight. We have no clue what this match is, nor do any wrestlers based on their joking Tweets this past week. Hopefully it’s something fun and worth revisiting.

The other grudge match tonight sees Rusev finally get his hands on Bobby Lashley. Rusev is promising to bring back the Bulgarian Brute tonight and tear Lashley limb-from-limb. I can see this match going to a DQ finish or something, so the real outcome can come at the Royal Rumble.

More grudges matches tonight include Randy Orton Vs. AJ Styles, and Aleister Black Vs. Buddy Murphy. So, if nothing else, tonight’s Raw should be one that delivers between the ropes. And Brock Lesnar returns to promote the Rumble, so that’s always fun. And that’s the preview for tonight’s Raw. Let us know what you’re excited to see by following us on Instagram and Twitter.  Enjoy the show!

WWE Raw

This week’s Raw opens with the future Hall of Famer, The Viper, Randy Orton coming to the ring.

The fans chant for Orton as he stands in the ring, so he jumps on the top rope and goes for another slow pose. Orton says he was asked to come out tonight and “excitedly” welcome everyone to Raw. However excited isn’t his style, so he wants to call-out a Superstar who is exciting. “AJ Styles, get your ass out here.” Orton says he will show Styles why he is going to win the Royal Rumble and while he’s here he’ll introduce him to the three most destructive letters in WWE…RKO.

Styles comes to the ring looking mad. AJ asks why Orton asked him to come out. He admits that Orton got him last week with the injury angle. And now Randy thinks he’s favourite to win the Rumble but it’s not true and he knows it. Orton asks why and AJ says because last week on Raw he hit the sweetest RKO of all-time for the win. Orton laughs and AJ says many people have said it was the best they’d ever seen. It was so good that maybe that’s all he needs to win the Royal Rumble.

Drew McIntyre comes out and says that would have to include himself. He says he’s had a few hard weeks with tough opponents, like the conga line. But now he wants bigger and better, and it just so happens he finds himself looking at Randy Orton and AJ Styles. He says they’re having an RKO-measuring contest but his Claymore is bigger. Randy throws his mic in the air. Drew then asks the fans if they want to see them talk all night, or have a Triple Threat match. Of course, the fans chose the latter.

Randy Orton Vs. AJ Styles Vs. Drew McIntyre

The bell rings and Drew kicks AJ, then Randy pokes him in the eye and throws him from the ring. Randy knocks AJ to the apron and looks for the draping DDT but out comes Gallows to pull AJ down. Meanwhile Karl Anderson runs into the ring and gets caught with an RKO. On the outside, McIntyre drops Gallows with a Claymore.

We’re back live and Orton is down, meanwhile McIntyre has AJ on the top rope. Drew looks for a superplex but AJ knocks him into the tree of woe. Randy comes over and stomps Drew in the tree, then he climbs over Drew to superplex AJ but McIntyre sits up and German suplexes Orton and AJ goes too.

McIntyre puts Randy in the corner but Styles kicks him away. McIntyre drops AJ with a Glasgow Kiss, then hits the Future Shock DDT and kips up. Drew goes to the corner and counts down for the Claymore but runs into a dropkick from Randy. McIntyre pulls Orton from the ring and slams him into the barricade, but then Styles comes from the ring with a Phenomenal Forearm to him. Styles lifts Drew with a back suplex into the barricade and Styles shoves him into the ring post.

Orton grabs the steel steps and cracks Drew in the head with them, then he and AJ get into the ring. As soon as Randy gets in, AJ hits the draping DDT. Styles drops to his knees and pounds the mat like Orton, and goes for the RKO but gets countered. Styles drops Randy with a Pele kick, then looks for the RKO again but gets shoved away and kicked. Orton lifts AJ and hits the Styles Clash but he kicks out!

Orton drops down and readies for the RKO but AJ counters with a roll-up for a near-fall. Orton catches Styles with the RKO but McIntyre immediately comes in and hits him with a Claymore and pins Styles for the win!

Winner: Drew McIntyre

*Commercial Break*

We see a lengthy recap of last week’s Raw when Big Show returned. I love Show as much as the next guy but why is WWE pushing him again?

Akam and Rezar are taping-up backstage when in walks Seth Rollins. He says he hopes they’re as excited as he is, because opportunities like this don’t come around very often. He says this fist fight is an opportunity and if you aren’t with him you’re against him. He asks if Joe, Owens, or Big Show can stop them and they say no. He says you can’t stop destiny and he has sacrificed more than anyone to ensure that remains intact.

Ricochet makes his entrance for a match, after the break.

Ricochet Vs. Mojo Rawley

The bell rings and Mojo swings a kick but Ricochet ducks it. Ricochet grabs the back but Rawley throws him off. Ricochet delivers a few forearms, then rolls under Mojo and hits a headscissors and a dropkick.

Rawley delivers a knee to the gut, then throws Ricochet onto the apron. Ricochet slides under the ropes and through Mojo’s legs, then throws him over the ropes to the floor and acts like he won the Rumble. Ricochet hits Mojo with a springboard kick as he attempted to get back in the ring, followed by a dive over the ropes.

Back in the ring, Ricochet hits a springboard but Rawley avoids it and hits a pounce for a two-count. Rawley connects with shoulders in the corner, followed by a running splash. Mojo wants an Alabama Slam but Ricochet holds the ropes and knees him away. Ricochet then hits a kick and a springboard crossbody but Rawley catches him. Ricochet counters Mojo with a Recoil, followed by a 630 splash for the win.

Winner: Ricochet

The Street Profits are backstage and Ford says this Raw is so hot we should rename it Monday Night Smoke. He talks about the card tonight and asks Dawkins who he has in the fist fight tonight. Dawkins says he’s busy working on his Oscar ballet, and Ford says what a good pop culture reference. Dawkins throws it away and asks the truck to hit The Queen’s music.

*Commercial Break*

Charlotte Flair Vs. Sarah logan

The match gets underway and Charlotte clocks Logan with a big boot before she can react. Charlotte grabs her leg and looks to apply the Figure Four but Logan scrambles to the opes and gets out of the ring. Charlotte chases after her and they brawl on the outside.

Charlotte wanted an exploder but Logan blocked it, then they continued fighting in a rather rough way. Then Charlotte put her back in the ring, slammed her into the buckles, and applied the Figure Eight for the win.

Winner: Charlotte Flair

After the match, Charlotte put on her robe, then tossed Logan over and out and she hit the apron hard. That was super weird; Logan got an entrance as though they were maybe looking to push her, but the match was awkward and reeked of a squash.

*Commercial Break*
