Come January 10th, Becky Lynch’s opponent for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view will be determined. On the 1/10 Raw, Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan and Doudrop are going to compete in a Triple-Threat to decide who gets a shot at the Raw Women’s Title.

There were segments featuring all four talents on the show. Morgan and Belair had an in-ring segment with Lynch which led to a brawl between Belair and Liv. Lynch came out on top after hitting Belair with the ‘Manhandle Slam’. Doudrop approached Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville and was added to the mix of Belair and Morgan.

Alexa Bliss was last featured on WWE programming at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view where she lost to Charlotte Flair. Bliss is coming back to Monday Night Raw and vignettes to further promote her return will begin airing next week.

The new WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is back aligned with Paul Heyman. During their promo segment, Heyman stated that Reigns has been without him for one week and contracted COVID-19. Lesnar is appearing on the 10/7 Friday Night SmackDown.

Omos and AJ Styles had their singles match and Omos decisively beat Styles.

The Women’s Tag Team Titles were on the line as the champions Queen Zelina and Carmella defeated Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley. Nikki lost her last two singles matches to Zelina and was pinned in tonight’s match as well.

Chad Gable and Otis scored a win over the Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle). Otis pinned Riddle to secure the victory for his team.

Damian Priest’s reign as United States Champion continued after he defeated Dolph Ziggler. The stipulation was that if Priest was disqualified, he’d lose the title. There was a point during the match when Priest appeared as if he was about to use a chair on Ziggler but used it on Robert Roode instead.
