Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage for WWE RAW behind closed doors.
That’s right, for the first time ever, tonight’s WWE RAW will take place behind closed doors at the Performance Centre in Florida. It’s going to make for an especially strange show given the presence of Stone Cold Steve Austin on 3:16 Day. That said, WWE is rolling with the punches and SmackDown was a fun show on Friday, so here’s hoping tonight will be the same.
Edge is also scheduled to appear on tonight’s RAW, as he continues his quest for revenge against Randy Orton. This is, by far, the best storyline in wrestling right now, and a unique setting could make for some fun brawling around the PC.
Elsewhere tonight, The Undertaker will meet AJ Styles for a contract signing. Last week Styles cut one hell of a promo on The Undertaker, making a simmering feud scorching hot. So tonight The Deadman returns and it’s exciting to see what he has in store for Styles following the scathing personal attack.
And that’s all we know about tonight’s WWE RAW. Let us know what you’re excited to see and follow along here for a few hours to take your mind off the usual. Enjoy the show!
Monday Night RAW opens from the WWE Performance Centre in Florida, with Jerry Lawler, Brian Saxton, and Tom Phillips in the ring. They introduce the unique show, and mention that Stone Cold will be there, as well as Edge and The Undertaker.

Edge’s music hits and out the Hall of Famer comes. Edge takes the ring by himself and says it’s been a strange few months for him and his wife, and we see footage of Randy Orton’s attacks. Edge says it has been a long time coming. When Bob Orton introduced him to his fresh-faced son some 20 years ago, he knew in his gut their lives would intertwine.
They stole the show, battling for the Intercontinental Championship, forming Rated RKO to take down DX, etc. All those roads they travelled, exchanging stories, finding out they disliked the same people, and owed the same man for their entire careers; Mick Foley. Edge says Foley took both of them at a young age and forced them to live by the sword. But there’s one lesson Edge took from Foley that Randy didn’t: grit.
Edge says him and Orton are very alike, but Orton is an entitled brat. Randy might be the very best to ever step in the ring, but he was handed everything on a silver platter. And it makes Orton jealous that someone like Edge could do achieve all the same things, coming from nothing. He didn’t have a rich daddy, he had a single mother who broke her back to make his dreams come true. He says Orton said he loves him, but he’s just jealous.

So two weeks ago Beth came back to give a medical update, but what no one realises is that she was there to retire him again, publicly. She felt Edge shouldn’t have to retire from what he loves twice, but Randy couldn’t stop himself. And Randy said Edge pulled him out of holes, saved him from making horrible decisions, but this time Orton saved him. Stopped him from making a horrible decision.
So at WrestleMania, if Randy has the guts, it’s gonna be Edge Vs. Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing match. Edge says Randy doesn’t get to write this story. It’s a redemption story and at the end, Randy won’t be standing.
Earlier today we see a video of Becky Lynch arriving at the Performance Centre in a semi-truck with her picture on it. She’ll be live on RAW, tonight.
