Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of WWE RAW. Tonight features the fallout from yesterday’s TLC pay-per-view. Feel free to refresh this page all night long for updates (while the show is in progress), while also leaving your reactions in the comments section.
The company is teasing that two feuds will continue this evening, in Randy Orton vs Bray Wyatt and AJ Styles vs WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
Orton lit aflame “The Fiend” last night, while McIntyre successfully defended his title against Styles in a TLC match that also saw The Miz unsuccessfully cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.
Additionally, Charlotte Flair returned yesterday as Asuka’s mystery tag team partner. The pair won the Women’s Tag Team Championships off of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, and Charlotte will likely have something to say about her return this evening.
All this and more on an action-packed edition of RAW!
