The go-home episode of Monday Night RAW for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view will emanate tonight from the Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas. WWE will fire from all cylinders tonight to hype up the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Last week’s show featured a hilarious segment between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and R-Truth. After his third straight loss to Aleister Black, Buddy Murphy surprised everyone by joining forces with Seth Rollins and AOP.
In addition, RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and one half of WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Asuka made their Title match official at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Tonight’s show is set to feature the third consecutive appearance from Brock Lesnar on RAW. Rusev and Liv Morgan will team up to take on the team of Bobby Lashley and Lana. Rey Mysterio and Andrade will collide once again, but this time under the stipulation of a Ladder match with the US Title on the line.
In this article, let’s take a look at 5 things that might happen on RAW tonight.
5. The Kabuki Warriors Assault Becky Lynch
After a long war of words, Becky Lynch and Asuka will finally get their hands on each other this coming Sunday at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view. The winner of the match will walk out with the RAW Women’s Championship.
But before the match, both women will be looking to make a huge statement tonight on the final RAW before the Royal Rumble. Last week, Lynch and Asuka had a contract signing for the match, after which Asuka spit with the green mist in the RAW Women’s Champion’s face.
Asuka will be looking to send a message to The Man once again tonight. Her Tag Team partner Kairi Sane was actively involved in last week’s segment and we could see more involvement from her tonight.
There’s a possibility that Asuka and Sane will gang up on Lynch tonight to make sure she heads into Royal Rumble with a low morale. We might even see Sane competing against Lynch tonight, as WWE would be looking to make sure she’s fine after the concussion she suffered at TLC last month. It may even lead to her getting a spot in the Royal Rumble match.
