The red brand will kick off 2020 tonight from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. WWE will now increase their pace in building up the Royal Rumble PPV, which is less than 3 weeks away.
Last week’s show ended in a controversial way as Liv Morgan returned to reveal herself as Lana’s lover, while Rusev crashed the wedding ceremony between Lana and Bobby Lashley. Seth Rollins and AOP got involved in a heated brawl against Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe.
Tonight’s show is set to feature the return of WWE Champion Brock Lesnar. The Viking Raiders will defend their RAW Tag Team Championship against The Street Profits and The O.C. in a Triple-Threat Tag Team match. Andrade will also lock horns with Rey Mysterio in a United States Championship match.
In this article, let’s take a look at 6 things that might happen on RAW tonight.
6. Andrade Retains The United States Championship
El Idolo defeated Rey Mysterio to win the United States Championship at Madison Square Garden on WWE’s Holiday Tour. He has been on a roll since then. Last week on RAW, Andrade defeated a local competitor and then Ricochet in an impromptu match to get two consecutive wins in one night.
The Master Of The 619 lost the United States Title to Andrade, but he hasn’t forgotten about it yet. Tonight, the two long-time rivals will once again face off with the United States Championship on the line.

As Andrade is going to defend the Title for the first time tonight, it is likely that he’ll retain it. In addition, he’s rumored to feud with Humberto Carrillo over it, while Mysterio may join Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe against Seth Rollins and AOP.
Carrillo hasn’t been in action over the past few weeks due to Andrade’s assault on him. If he returns tonight, the United States Title picture could shake things up a bit.
