• Vince McMahon Announces New Universal Title Plan For Royal Rumble 2019

On tonight’s episode of RAW, Baron Corbin angered Braun Strowman in the opening segment and this lead to Strowman chasing Corbin.

Corbin went backstage and hid inside Vince McMahon’s limo. Strowman asked Elias backstage where Corbin is hiding and Elias told him Corbin is in the limo.

This led to Strowman ripping off the limo’s door and Corbin ended up escaping from the other door of the limo.

Vince saw Strowman causing damage to his limo and fined him $100,000. But that was not it. Vince also cancelled the Universal Championship match between Brock Lesnar & Braun Strowman at Royal Rumble 2019!

This angered Strowman even more and he flipped off Vince’s limo! You can watch it below:

Later in the night, Vince McMahon came out in the ring to give an update on the Universal Title picture.

As soon as Vince began talking, John Cena’s music hit! Cena says he knows why Vince is here.

Cena talks about how back in the day Stone Cold, The Rock and Brock Lesnar left Vince McMahon, but it was him who stepped up and didn’t disappoint Vince.

Cena asks Vince for another chance and says he will not let him down. Cena says he will defeat Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2019 to become a 17 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion because he has something that no other WWE Superstar has – Ruthless Aggression!

This led to Drew McIntyre interrupting Cena. Drew says how dare Cena is still saying he has Ruthless Aggression, because Cena’s time is up. Drew says Cena can now leave just like Austin, Rock & Lesnar.

Now Corbin makes his way out and asks Vince for a Universal Championship match against Brock.

Finn Balor is out next. Balor says he’s the only one out here who has been Universal Champion. Balor says Vince never believed in him, but the people did. Balor says he knows Vince is stubborn and then attacked Corbin to change his mind.

A brawl breaks out and Drew McIntyre is the Last Man Standing after Drew nails a Claymore Kick on Cena.

Vince announces a #1 contender Fatal 4 Way match for tonight’s main event: John Cena vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Finn Balor vs. Baron Corbin (winner faces Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2019).
