Hello and welcome to WWE Raw Live Results!
Nothing like starting the week off with what should be a fun show. I’m CP Bialois, your host, and I have high hopes after last week’s solid episode.
WWE Raw Live Results will be back at the 8 p.m. EST showtime, so we’re going to grab some snacks while we can.
The show started with an awesome video tribute to Martin Luther King Jr.
Randy Orton wore a burn mask as he cut an amazingly awesome promo in a darkened arena. He said he doesn’t blame Bliss, but the Fiend.
He promised that he will still compete in the Royal Rumble and main event WrestleMania.
Charlotte Flair vs. Peyton Royce
Royce attacked Flair from behind on the ramp, but they were quickly separated by officials as we headed to commercial.
Flair dominated the match until Ric Flair came out with Lacey Evans, with Evans wearing one of his old robes.
Royce rolled her up for a near pinfall as we headed to commercial.
Flair eventually ended a great opening match with a figure 8 submission on Royce.
Bobby Lashley stomped on Riddle’s flip flopped feet to set up their 6 man tag match later on, and Ali cut a promo saying he wants to break Kofi Kingston’s dreams after his were lost in 2019,
Xavier Woods vs. Mace w/Mustafa Ali, T-Bar, Slapjack
This was a decent match and Woods put up a great fight, but Mace and Retribution eventually beat him when mace hit a spinning sidewalk slam for the pin.
In an awesomely hilarious segment called WrestleMania Report, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon reported on the next three WrestleMania locations.
Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns announced 2021’s WM will be in Tampa Bay again for the first time.
Sasha banks announced 2022’s will be in AT&T Stadium in Texas, and Jon Cena reported WM will go Hollywood in 2023 in LA.
This was awesome and disturbing, and Asuka did a great job looking freaked out.
Jeff Jarrett picked Goldberg to defeat Drew McIntyre at the Royal Rumble. We really hope not.
We’d prefer the WWE build up their current crop of wrestlers rather than showing us how much they lack compared to the Attitude Era. Just saying.
Mandy Rose w/Dana Brooke vs. Shayna Baszler w/Nia Jax
This was a decent match that Baszler won with a Coquina Clutch, but it was meant more to drive home Baszler and Jax’s upcoming fued.
We have to admit seeing Jax put Bryan Saxton through the announce table would’ve been awesome by the end of the match.
Baszler and Jas challenged Flair and Asuka to rematch for the Women’s Tag Team Championship.
Flair said she now has Evans firmly in her sights.
Ricochet and Styles exchanged barbs backstage, and Styles told Adam Pearce he doesn’t like him anymore, and if he doesn’t like him then Omos doesn’t like him.
Omos and Pearce were locked in a stare down as we headed to commercial.
Ricochet vs. AJ Styles w/Omos
This started out as a great technical match that showed a new more aggressive and focused Ricochet.
Ricochet went for a crossbody over the top rope and Omos caught him, then dropped him to the floor at the ref’s command as we headed to commercial.
A great match ended with an even more awesome finisher as Styles draped Ricochet on the top rope and caught him in midair for the Styles Clash.
It’s reminiscent to some of the moves Styles used to hit in TNA Impact Wrestling.
The Dirt Sheet with the Miz and John Morrison featuring Gilberg
Yep, seriously. He’s back and we’re loving it.
A faux McIntyre came out with a Scottish brogue.
Miz then promised he’ll win the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble after cashing in his MITB contract. Finally. Please end the MITB bit. Pretty please with sugar on top.
The Hurt Business (Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander, Shelton Benjamin) w/MVP vs. Riddle and Lucha House Party (Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik)
This was an interesting match as there was more infight among the Hurt Business than there was in the match early on.
Alexander shoved Benjamin, and Benjamin shoved him out of the ring and to the floor as we headed to commercial.
Lashley finally had enough and tagged himself in and hit a spear and Hurt Lock on Metalik for the win.
Riddle then hit Lashley with a right when he tried to separate Alexander and Benjamin, and Riddle took off.
Jeff Hardy vs. Jaxson Ryker w/Elias
This was a meh match that ended in disqualification when Elias knocked Jeff off the top rope.
Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss
This was a pretty good back and forth early one, and Bliss never stopped smiling.
The lights started to fail as we headed to commercial, but it’s different then with the Fiend.
We think Bliss is going to appear as the Fiendess when we get back.
As expected, the Fiendess appeared in a goth type of outfit and hair and Bliss casually absorbed everything Asuka threw at her before hitting a Sister Abigail for the win.
After the match, the screen flashed and the other Alexa Bliss reappeared and she smiled and said, “Let me in” in the Fiend’s voice as the show ended.
As we hoped, this was a fun show and the ending was pure awesomeness. We’ve been waiting to see the Fiendess in action, and it was every bit we expected. Can’t wait to see more of her.
What did you think of the show? Let us know in the comments below, and thank you for joining WWE Raw Live Results.
We had a great time and can’t wait until next week.
