WWE Raw notes: Tommaso Ciampa appears, RK-Bro vs. Alpha Academy rematch, Priest/Styles

Tommaso Ciampa makes his return to Raw, date set for Alpha Academy vs. RK-Bro tag title match and Damian Priest defeats AJ Styles

Tommaso Ciampa made his return to Monday Night Raw. He was on commentary for the tag match between The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins) and Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode. When they came face-to-face on the outside of the ring, Ciampa tossed a cup of water into the face of Ziggler. Ziggler later superkicked Ciampa. The two talents brawled on last week’s NXT 2.0 after Ziggler interrupted a segment involving Santos Escobar and NXT Champion Bron Breakker.

During the opening segment of Raw, Riddle stated that he and Randy Orton are going to be challenging the Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis) for the Raw Tag Titles in two weeks.

Damian Priest defeated AJ Styles to retain the United States Title. Styles is going to be a part of the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber match on 2/19.

The competitors in that aforementioned men’s Chamber match kicked off tonight’s Raw. The segment concluded with Brock Lesnar taking out Austin Theory and then taking a selfie with Theory.

WWE added a new element to their signature intro. There is voiceover work being done when the, ‘Then, now, together, forever’ appears.
