The Bar bemoaned Angle showing favouritism when his son Jason Jordan and Seth Rollins won the RAW tag team championship last week, Jason Jordan defended himself before Seth Rollins tells his tag team partner that he has a lot to learn about being a team mate. Seth tells Jason to stop being so self-absorbed, and tells Jason he will be in his corner tonight.

Jordan said "believe that", before leaving, leaving Reigns and Rollins bemused.

    Braun Strowman is walking backstage when Kane appeared to want to just talk about Lesnar, Kane said he has a plan after claiming they are both the alpha monsters of WWE. Strowman told him he doesn't care about his plan, and when he takes Lesnar down, it will be on his own terms.

    Before the next match, Drew Gulak and Ariya Daivari are in the ring with a letter from Enzo Amore who said he is not defending his championship tonight due to the flu. Moments later, Cedric Alexander made his entrance and asked which one of the two will step up to take his place. Gulak and Daivari accepted if it was a tag team match, Goldust made his way out and said he will team up with Cedric.

He also has another resolution, to beat Sami Zayn tonight and wanted to address the decision to allow Sami Zayn to be allowed at ringside last week. Daniel Bryan and then Shane McMahon came to the ring, Shane apologised to Styles before accuses the GM of having a kinship with Owens and Zayn. Shane announces he will be at ringside tonight if Owens is allowed to be. Bryan says that Owens should be at ringside if Shane is, and adds he may as well be at ringside too.

    (Gable and Benjamin thought they had won the match but it turned out that the wrong man had been pinned so the match was restarted.)

    WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW
    DATE - MONDAY 8TH JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - FEDEX FORUM: MEMPHIS, TN
    ANNOUNCERS - COREY GRAVES, MICHAEL COLE & BOOKER T

    The Intercontinental Champion opened Monday Night Raw and spoke of silencing Samoa Joe last week and sent a message to anyone in the back: if you mess with one of the members of the shield, you mess with them all. Jason Jordan came to the ring and told Reigns on behalf of his partner, Reigns proved it was his yard before putting his fist out. Seth Rollins came down and told Jordan that he was stepping on Reigns' moment. Jordan spoke of how they have all had problems with Joe, and Reigns took care of it, just like they took care of the Bar and saying they run the show. Reigns had had enough of the "we" stuff, he said he is on a team with Seth, but he's THE guy. Jordan says they’re all champions and can take everyone out. They’re not The Shield, but they’re pretty good. They might be the most dominant three-man group in all of WWE.

    Finn Balor made his way to the stage with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, and said the Balor Club is back. They make reference to how Jordan isn't part of the most dominant three-man group in WWE. Later Jordan said he is happy to be a part of the champion's club, to the dismay of Rollins and Reigns. They call Jordan a NERD! provoking him to slap Gallows in the face. RAW GM Kurt Angle made his way out and said he has found his main event tonight - Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Jason Jordan vs. The Balor Club.

    1# Sasha Banks & Bayley (w/ Mickie James) bt. Absolution (w/ Paige) Via Submission

    We learn courtesy of a facebook earlier today, that Alicia Fox will be teaming with Goldust on the Mixed Match Challenge one week from tomorrow.

    2# "Woken" Matt Hardy bt. Curt Hawkins
    (Post-match, Bray Wyatt goes to face-to-face and engages with a laugh-off with the Woken one".)

    Elias is in the ring and plays a song about Memphis which ends with them saying he doesn't care about them. He then introduces The Miz to the ring after a 6-week hiatus from the WWE for an edition of MIZ TV. Miz spoke of how he wasn't forgotten because of Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel who turned their careers around in 2017. Both members of the Miztourage gave Miz gifts but ended up trying to compete on who gives him the better gift. Miz spoke of how he held the Intercontinental title in 2017 for 200 days and held up this show, he even mentioned how he was the Rolling Stone's superstar of the year. He turned his attention to the Shield giving him a triple powerbomb through the announce table 6 weeks ago. Miz spoke of how he let Roman Reigns borrow the Intercontinental title, but the title doesn't make the champion, the champion makes the title, and daddy's home. He said in 2018, he'll celebrate the birth of his daughter, and will become the longest reigning, singing greatest Intercontinental title of all time. When children grow up in this generation, they will think of him with the title like some of the greats but now will only think of him. He says he is back and coming for the title, and Reigns can believe that.

    3# Cedric Alexander bt. Enzo Amore Via count-out in a WWE Cruiserweight Championship match

    Backstage, Kurt Angle is on the phone with a woman who hadn't been in the ring for years but would be great for the Royal Rumble. The Bar interrupts and spoke of their rematch for the RAW Tag Team Championship before Angle told them they will receive this at the Royal Rumble. They mentioned about tonight and Angle told them to go the ring and he'll find them some competition. The Miz walked in and mentioned his new show on the USA network with his wife, and told Angle he wanted his rematch on the 25th Anniversary of Monday night Raw, Angle agrees and makes the match.

    We find out that The Miz will team with Asuka for the Mixed Match Challenge.

    4# Titus O'Neil & Apollo Crews (w/ Dana Brooke) bt. Sheamus & Cesaro

    Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman make their way to the ring, Heyman spoke about how the Universal title match isn't being built up in an "old school" way and gotten away from the real build. He said there is only one real cliffhanger: will Lesnar pin Kane or Strowman or stack them on top of each other and pin them. He mentions how Lesnar is the most dominant champion inn the history of the WWE and has yet to see anyone out there that can beat and put down Lesnar. Kane attacks Lesnar from behind on the ramp with Lesnar trying to fight back, this spills out in to the backstage area. Strowman wipes both men out by throwing Lesnar in to some crates and threw a table, then hit Kane with a road case before slamming it on him. Strowman then grabbed a grappling hook and threw it on to a metal structure before pulling it down on Kane and Lesnar.

    5# Samoa Joe bt. Rhyno (w/ Health Slater) Via Submission
    (Post-match, Charly Caruso interviews Samoa Joe about the sting of losing to Reigns last week. Joe spoke of how Reigns' victory came at such a great cost that it might as well be a loss. He said he will be there when Reigns' career comes tumbling down but will pursue more worthy things until then. He then announced his entrance and participation in the Royal Rumble match. Joe says when it comes to his career, John Cena is a name he will never forget and will be the first man he eliminates from the Royal Rumble match.)

    Alexa Bliss came up to Nia Jax backstage and told her she is worried about Enzo holding her back. Nia said he isn't and she'll be in the Royal Rumble match. Bliss said that maybe she can eliminate Asuka on course to victory, Nia said they are on a collision course anyway. Bliss attempted to create a rouse that Asuka was talking badly about Jax but she told Bliss that Asuka doesn't speak english.

    In the ring, Asuka was set for a match but Nia grabbed her from the turnbuckles and hit an electric chair drop before hitting a senton splash.

    6# The Balor Club bt. Seth Rollins, Jason Jordan & Roman Reigns in a six man tag team match
    (Post-match, Reigns admonishes Jordan for the error he made in the match to cost his team. Moments later, The Miz & The Miztourage attacked all 3 men from behind with Miz hitting Reigns with a skull crushing finale. Moments later, they also hit a triple powerbomb to the big dog.)

    Smackdown Live opened with Renee Young interviewing the WWE Champion, they spoke about Daniel Bryan's contraversial decision last week for Styles to defend his WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble in a handicap match - she asked him if she thought that was fair. Styles said he regretted what he said at the end of last week's show as he was being sarcastic, but he said he will hit both men hard and fast. Styles said that the decision isn't fair but neither is life, then said both men got non-title victories over him but they don't deserve title shots together. Styles made a comment that he can't get between Shane and Bryan.

    Owens and Zayn made their way to the ring and said that at the Royal Rumble, they will be the first co-WWE Champions.

He calls New Day a fad and the Modern Day Maharaja as being forever.

    Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin come to the ring and bemoaned the decision to restart the match last week after they thought they had won the Smackdown tag team titles. Daniel Bryan questioned why both men are questioning management, they responded by saying they are questioning the referee staff but he said they represent management. Bryan said he stands by the referee decision, but Gable continued to express his feeling and said he wants to k now what they need to do - beat them twice in one night. Bryan smiled and called Gable a genius before making The Usos vs. Gable & Benjamin in a 2 out of 3 falls match at the Royal Rumble for the Smackdown tag team titles.

    Backstage, Daniel Bryan is watching the match finish as Shane McMahon walks in. Bryan says this show tonight has been great and praises Shane for booking a good main event. Shane thanks him, but wants to be open and honest. He says they aren’t on the same page and accuses Bryan’s booking of being irrational at times. Shane questions the WWE Championship booking and Smackdown Tag Team Championships booking. He asks Bryan if he is doing okay. Bryan asks what that means. Shane says Bryan seems unstable. Bryan says he could say the same about Shane and his past decisions. Shane agrees to disagree.

    5# Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura & AJ Styles bt. Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens in a 2-on-3 Handicap match

    WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW
    DATE - MONDAY 15TH JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - AT&T CENTER: SAN ANTONIO, TX
    ANNOUNCERS - COREY GRAVES, MICHAEL COLE & BOOKER T

    The monster among men opens monday night Raw with a short story with a happy ending for the WWE universe. A beast and a machine met a monster at the Royal Rumble and the last one standing was the Monster Among Man, who became the Universal Champion.

    Kurt Angle came to the ring with security, the RAW GM told Strowman that he could have maimed Lesnar and Kane last week, he has created an unsafe working environment and went on to speak of his responsibilities of a GM. He informed Strowman that it won't be a triple threat at the Royal Rumble for the WWE Universal Championship, infact he won't be competing at all as he is fired.

    An angry Strowman dares the security to make him leave, Strowman then wipes out the whole security team backstage by throwing them over barricades and putting one through a table. He said he is not finished yet, and won't leave until everyone gets his hands.

    1# Apollo Crews & Titus O'Neil (w/ Dana Brooke) bt. Sheamus & Cesaro
    (Jason Jordan music hit which distracted Sheamus as Crews rolled him up to get the 3. Post-match, Rollins comes out and yells at Jordan for what he just did.)

    Braun Strowman is walking furiously backstage looking for Angle's office, he kicks the door down but Angle isn't there so he destroys his office before leaving. After the commercial, Strowman walks in to catering and chokeslams Curt Hawkins through a table, there was also someone there holding a chocolate cake. Strowman stared at him before eating a piece and leaving.

    Enzo Amore came to the ring along with Tony Nese ahead of Nese's match, Enzo said he is banged up but he will be at the Royal Rumble. Enzo insulted Alexander before saying he will have to go through Nese to get to him. Alexander makes his way out along with Goldust, Goldust tells the cruiserweight champion that he will be beaten at the Royal Rumble before Alexander said there will be one word to describe Enzo: S-A-W-F-T.

    2# Cedric Alexander (w/ Goldust) bt. Tony Nese (w/ Enzo Amore)

    Kurt Angle is backstage in his office surveying the damage. Angle says he’s never been in a situation like this before. Angle says he’ll have to call the cops and have them bring in the SWAT. A referee breathlessly runs in and says Strowman is heading for the television trucks. In some truly bad acting, Angle says, “Oh god — they’re worth $12 million!” They run off.

    After the commercial, Strowman talks about taking the show off the air by destroying the truck. Strowman causes havoc as the employees run away. Moments later, Strowman takes the front of the 18 wheeler and gets out to tip it over. Angle asks what he is doing but strowman tells him to go away. Strowman then lifts up the tractor and tips it over before screaming in Angle's face.

    Security is chasing Strowman backstage, Strowman makes his way in to the arena and charges towards the commentators. Strowman catches Michael Cole and drags him around by the seat of his pants, he lifts him but at the same time, Angle told him he has called off the cops and Stephanie McMahon has called and re-hired him, putting him back in to the match at the Royal Rumble as well. Strowman raises his arms before throwing Michael Cole off the stage in to the security guards. Due to what happened with Michael Cole, Tom Phillips joined the commentary team for the rest of the show.

    3# Asuka bt. Nia Jax Via referee's decision

    Kurt Angle is backstage assessing the damage in his office, Jason Jordan comes in and thanks him for believing him. Jordan told his dad that he has had his eye on Strowman the whole night, then said he wanted to help his partner as he needs single competition to keep him sharp after a loss. Jordan suggests Finn Balor, Angle agrees to the match.

    We see a video package of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    4# The Revival bt. Local Talent
    (Post-match, Charly Caruso speaks to the Revival, Dawson and Wilder spoke about what they just saw was tag team excellence and it has been missing for some time. All they care about is punishing their opponents and doing holds and not playing video games or checking instagram for likes. Charly asked them which old school superstars they are looking forward to seeing next week, Revival made reference to how superstars like New Age Outlaws, Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin are the reason the business is a mockery. They spoke of how they are not a WWE creation, and next week on RAW 25, they will prove that this is their universe as their is only one team that will set the tone for RAW for the next 25 years and they're in the ring right now.)

    Elias is in the ring and is playing riffs before asking who wants to walk with Elias, he says he hopes Michael Cole is ok and he is here for two reasons: to teach them a lesson and make their lives better. That lesson is WWE stands for Walk With Elias. Elias talks about being in the Royal Rumble before singing about how he’ll eliminate John Cena for what he did on Christmas Day. The crowd loudly boos when he says the Spurs are destined to fail. Elias then sings an introduction for the Miz.

    The Miz talks about how awesome it was to hear the reaction to his return last week. The spark that was missing from this show was not John Cena or Brock Lesnar: it was him. Last week, Kurt Angle granted him his Intercontinental Championship rematch. That felt awesome. Laying out Roman Reigns also felt awesome. Now USA Network is producing a show called “Miz and Misses.” At RAW 25, he’ll deliver an unforgettable moment that people will talk about for the next 25 years. That title is his. Miz will reclaim his title in the Barclays Center. That’s gonna feel awesome.

    5# Roman Reigns bt. The Miztourage (w/ The Miz) in a non-title 2-on-1 Handicap match
    6# Sonya Deville (w/ Absolution) bt. Sasha Banks (w/ Bayley & Mickie James)

    Seth Rollins is warming up when Jason Jordan comes in. Rollins says Jordan shouldn’t have done what he did to The Bar tonight or speak on his behalf. They’re teammates. Jordan is not his spokesman. Rollins doesn’t have a problem with what he did. He has a problem with how he did it.

    7# Matt Hardy bt. Heath Slater (w/ Rhyno)

    Goldberg is announced as the first inductee in to the WWE Hall of Fame: class of 2018.

    8# Seth Rollins (w/ Jason Jordan) bt. Finn Balor (w/ Gallows & Anderson)
    (The Bar came to the ring and inadvertently hit Gallows and Anderson. They brawl at ringside before Balor wipes them out with a summersault senton. Moments later, Cesaro gets on the apron but Balor punches him off. Balor hits the ropes and Jordan tripped him which led to the curb stomp to get the 3.)

    1# TJP bt. Gran Metalik
    (Post-match, TJP is backstage and is throwing a fit about losing the match. He is questioned whether he was crying, he said no and walked away.)

    Gentleman Jack Gallagher is in the back, and spoke of how he has been hearing the sound of Brian Kendrick's skull cracking in the past few weeks. Gallagher mentioned he has been tortured in his underestimation of Hideo Itami and sent a message to him that he will rue the day he came to 205 Live.

    Cedric Alexander and Goldust come to the ring, with Goldust telling Cedric he is a star on the cusp of a golden opportunity and it will be time to roll film on a new champion when he defeats Enzo Amore. Cedric said this was the biggest opportunity of his career and thanks Goldust for being a mentor and a friend. Enzo makes his way to the stage with Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari and Drew Gulak. Enzo said he is a bigger star than either of them, Goldust insults the cruiserweight champion before Enzo told him to shut up. Goldust challenged him to come to the ring, Enzo said to get to him then you have to get through three members of the Zo train. Goldust told him to bring it on.

    DATE - WEDNESDAY 17TH JANUARY 2018
    TAPED - THURSDAY 4TH JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - CENTER STAGE: ATLANTA, GA
    ANNOUNCERS - PERCY WATSON, MAURO RANALLO & NIGEL MCGUINNESS


    1# Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli bt. Heavy Machinery

    In a pre-recorded interview, Adam Cole touts the reasons that he will embarass Aleister Black at Takeover - Philadelphia. Fish and O'Reilly state that whoever the new #1 contenders will be - are simply earning the right to step up and get dropped by the Undisputed Era because it's their era and everyone else is just living in it.

    2# Roderick Strong bt. Fabian Aichner
    (Post-match, Strong grabs a mic and says that he has ran through the competition but just like the guy he is talking about, he wants to destroy this force - Lars Sullivan.)

    We see Part 1 in an extensive look at TM-61

    3# Lacey Evans bt. Aliyah
    (Post-match, Evans bemoans the state of the current women's division and says it is time a proper, sophisticated, powerful woman cleaned house. She goes through the list of NXT superstars until Shayna Baszler stares down Evans before she applies the Karafuto Clutch. Ember Moon came to make the save before calling her out to dare to try and that stuff with her, Baszler says she doesn't have her gear but will do it with the title on the line. Moon tells her to name the time and she'll beat her ass.)

    Backstage, William Regal is asked about what just happened. Regal said it is against his better judgement but makes Ember Moon vs. Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women's Championship at Takeover. Zelina Vega then shows up and proposes Gargano to put his #1 contendership on the line against Velveteen Dream as he knows he will lose to Andrade "cien" Almas. Regal declines before Vega continues to disparage Gargano.

    Johnny Gargano came to the ring and said that he is done being doubted and it is not a fluke that he is the #1 contender. Gargano says if Dream wants him to put his #1 contendership on the line, he will do it next week and he is confident he will still become the next NXT Champion.

    4# Authors of Pain (w/ Paul Ellering) bt. Street Profits to become the #1 contenders for the NXT Tag Team Championship

    WWE RAW 25TH ANNIVERSARY
    DATE - MONDAY 22ND JANUARY 2018
    VENUES - BARCLAYS CENTER: BROOKLYN, NY & MANHATTAN CENTER: NEW YORK CITY, NY
    ANNOUNCERS - COREY GRAVES, MICHAEL COLE & BOOKER T (BROOKLYN) / JIM ROSS & JERRY "THE KING" LAWLER (NEW YORK)

    We open the show live in the Manhattan Center, the site of the very first episode of Monday Night RAW in 1993. JR and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show. Lawler is dressed in his classic “King” attire. The RAW siren is also blaring. Lawler says this will be the biggest RAW ever!

    Shane McMahon & Stephanie McMahon welcome us to the 25th anniversary of Monday Night RAW, on behalf of the McMahon family, they thank every superstar that has stepped through the ropes and the unsung heroes, including cameramen and production crew. They present a video package celebrating 25 years of RAW. They then introduce one very special person who made all this possible, the chairman of WWE, the creator of Monday Night RAW - Vincent Kennedy McMahon.

    Vince gets in the ring and says he doesn't like to pay himself on the back for his achievements and doesn't like to smell the roses for long, but tonight he will smell the roses. Vince gets ready to leave but Stephanie and Shane presented him with a plaque to celebrate 25 years of RAW. Vince is not impressed and calls it cheap, before insulting the people of Brooklyn. Vince thanks himself because he did it all by himself. Stone Cold Steve Austin made his way to the ring, Vince back pedals and says he is now a senior citizen but threw his son Shane in the fire by saying he is in this prime. Austin raises his arm before hitting him with a Stone cold stunner. Vince grabs a beer and hands it to Austin for old time's sake. They drink beer, hug and moments later, Austin flips the boss and hits him with a Stone Cold Stunner. Before the rattlesnake leaves, he toasts a beer with Shane before hitting one last Stunner.

    1# Sasha Banks, Bayley, Mickie James & Asuka bt. Alicia Fox, Nia Jax & Absolution (w/ Paige) Via Submission in an 8-woman tag team match
    (Post-match, Asuka knocks Banks, Bayley and Mickie James all over the top rope.)

    Kurt Angle is backstage talking with a referee and mentions that tonight is about celebration and not chaos, he said they can't afford an incident with Brock Lesnar, Kane and Braun Strowman in the ring at the same time. Jonathan Coachman comes in and hugs Angle before multiple other legends come in to this office - Harvey Wippleman, The Brooklyn Brawler, Teddy Long, Brother Love and The Boogeyman. Boogeyman takes worms out of his mouth and puts them in the Coach's hand before leaving.

    The Undertaker made his way to the ring in the Manhattan Center, he spoke how his carnage began on this sacred ground of evil 25 years ago. For 25 years, he’s been digging holes and any person who dares to step foot on the dark side got buried. For 25 years, he’s taken legends, ripped them off their pedestals, and thrown them in the cold, dark earth. Stone Cold answered to the reaper. Mick Foley answered to the reaper. Even his own flesh and blood, Kane, had to answer to the reaper! They all tried… they all failed. “Now, on this sacred ground, I declare for all of those who have fallen, it is truly time you rest… in… peace.”

    We see Ron Simmons and JBL in the old APA office, they are playing poker with Heath Slater and Rhyno. JBL takes the money of Slater before the "Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase walks in and asks what their price is and laughs.

    Some of the greatest General Managers in Monday Night Raw history are brought to the stage - John Laurinaitis, William Regal, Eric Bischoff and they sent out the Smackdown GM - Daniel Bryan. The miz interrupts festivities and went to face to face with Bryan before making his way to the ring.

    2# The Miz (w/ The Miztourage) bt. Roman Reigns to become the new WWE Intercontinental Champion
    (Despite multiple interferences from Dallas and Axel, it was the exposed middle turnbuckle which was the downfall for the big dog. Miz hit a skull crushing finale and got the 3.)

    Back in the APA office, more players have arrived to include Jeff Hardy, MVP and The Usos.

    Christian returns with a special edition of the PEEP SHOW, he brings his guests Jason Jordan and Seth Rollins to the ring. Jordan kept talking until The Bar made their way to the stage, and said that they will reclaim the RAW Tag Team Championship this Sunday. They both sung "you suck" to Angle's theme before Jordan attacks them. Rollins clotheslined Sheamus out of the ring before hitting him with a suicide dive. Rollins comes off the top rope with a springboard knee, but Cesaro moves and Jordan takes the move!

    Charly Caruso is backstage with Alexa Bliss and speaks about being the champion by Wrestlemania, Charlotte Flair came up and said the only reason she is the champion is because she is on Smackdown Live. Charlotte told Alexa she doesn't think she will be the champion by Wrestlemania and Bliss doesn't have the size or the pedigree - to be the woman, you have got to beat the woman. If you don’t believe her, ask her father. Ric Flair comes up to her. Flair says Bliss is lovely and may be the champion tonight, but Charlotte will be the champion tonight, tomorrow, next week, next month, at WrestleMania, the night after WrestleMania, and until she decides to hang up her robe. Flair and Charlotte let out a big “WOO!”

    Titus Worldwide and Natalya have joined the APA card game. Natalya beats Heath Slater, who keeps losing tonight. Dana Brooke says she crunched the numbers and determined that Slater has lost a lot of money tonight. We now go back to the Manhattan Center....

    3# Bray Wyatt bt. "Woken" Matt Hardy

    Back at the Barclays center, JoJo introduces to the stage some of the greatest female superstars in the history of WWE - The Bella Twins, Maryse, Kelly Kelly, Lillian Garcia, Jacqueline, Torrie Wilson, Michelle McCool, Terri Runnels, Maria Kanellis and Trish Stratus.

    Elias is walking backstage and bumps in to Chris Jericho, Jericho noticed Elias' scarf and sang a song about him. Jericho sings that he doesn’t want to walk with Elias. Why? He’ll give you the gist. He’s a stupid idiot. Elias just… Elias just… Jericho holds up The List of Jericho and laughs before saying he got Elias. Jericho then says he’s just kidding because Elias JUST MADE THE LIST!

    Elias is now in the center of the ring and teased the crowd that he won't sing, he continued as he pointed out Jimmy Fallon at ringside. He was soon interrupted by John Cena, Elias told the 16-time champion that no one wants to hear Cena. Cena challenged Elias to do something about it, Elias went to leave but attempted a sneak attack instead. Cena attacked Elias and went for the AA until Elias hit him with a low blow and smashed his guitar on his back.

    The New Day are in the APA’s office with all the rest of the crowd. Heath Slater is revealed to be cheating. JBL says this is a game for civilized people. If they want to fight, they should go to the ring. DiBiase just laughs and shows a royal flush. DiBiase takes all the money and throws away the pancake. Ron Simmons looks down at DiBiase, takes a good long moment, and says, “DAMN!”.

    Mark Henry is walking backstage when he bumps into The Godfather! Godfather introduces Henry to a young woman. Godfather says Henry used to be Sexual Chocolate. Henry says he’s changed, but Godfather has stayed the same. Henry then reintroduces himself to the woman, and Godfather says that’s his wife. Godfather says, “Like you said, we’ve all grown up.”

    4# Titus O'Neil & Apollo Crews (w/ Dana Brooke) vs. Health Slater & Rhyno ended in a No Contest
    (Both teams begin to brawl and the referee threw the match out. Post-match, the Dudley Boyz made their way to the ring. Titus Worldwide and Rhyno throw Slater in to the ring where he received a "WASSUP" head-butt to the genitals before hitting the 3D through a table.)

    Charly Caruso is backstage and AJ Styles comes up and has arranged someone to do the interview with him - Mean Gene Okerlund. Okerlund asks Styles about his handicap match this Sunday, Styles impersonates Hogan before saying that he will hit Owens and Zayn hard and fast, and retain the WWE Championship.

    D-Generation X makes their way out in the Manhattan Center, Triple H & Shawn Michaels are out first. Michaels tries to reminisce about old DX stories like the Sausage Kielbasa thing or when they had santa hats on their privates. HBK made reference to how Triple H is now the boss of everything. Triple H spoke about when they used to come to the ring every week with "Ravishing" Rick Rude and the "9th wonder of the world" Chyna. They did whatever the hell they wanted and say whatever the hell they wanted. DX has always been at the forefront of this whether it was being on the first RAW or driving a tank to WCW and starting a war or being here tonight for the 25th anniversary. The Manhattan Center for RAW is home. DX will be at the forefront of the next 25 years. It’s time to start that right now. Are you ready? Triple H then asks again. They didn’t come alone.

    The New Age Outlaws make their way to the ring. “Road Dogg” Jesse James and “Bad Ass” Billy Gunn. Road Dogg goes through his old schtick before introducing X-Pac to the ring. A “1-2-3” chant picks up. X-Pac looks moved by that. This is a DX reunion, but they can’t have a 25th anniversary celebration without this guy… Razor Ramon! “Razor Ramon” Scott Hall makes his way to the ring.

    We come back from the break to hear Scott Hall say, “Hey yo…” Everybody knows you can’t have a party on RAW without The Bad Guy. Hall has been watching the show from both locations. This RAW 25 thing is just too sweet.

    The Balor Club makes their way to the ring to a big reception! Finn Balor, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows get in the ring. The Balor Club and DX then do a “Too Sweet” hand signal to a good round of applause. The Revival then make their way to the ring. Mike Chioda gets in the ring in the old blue referee shirt and a black bow tie.

    5# Anderson & Gallows bt. The Revival
    (Post-match, DX and Ramon celebrate with The Balor Club. Dawson turns Ramon around. Ramon throws his toothpick in his face. X-Pac hits the X-Factor. Road Dogg hits the Shake, Rattle, and Roll before Billy Gunn hits a Fame-ass-er. HBK hits some Sweet Chin Music on Wilder before Triple H drops him with a Pedigree. Balor then hits the Coup de Grace. Gunn says, “If you’re not down with that, we’ve got two words for ya…” The crowd finishes with an enthusiastic, “SUCK IT!”)

    Back in the Barclays Center, Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring with a bunch of legends and the RAW roster. He introduces Kane and Braun Strowman before Paul Heyman comes out and says his client isn't here for a nostalgia trip, he is here for a fight. Strowman clotheslines Kane and leaves the ring. Lesnar absolutely kills Strowman with a clothesline outside before hitting Kane with an F5 in the ring. Strowman gets in and avoids a German Suplex before clotheslining him over the top rope. Strowman launches him into the barricade and clears the commentary off. Strowman then gives Lesnar a Running Powerslam through the table.

    Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn open Smackdown Live, they rant about Shane McMahon and then AJ Styles with claims that that they have proven Styles has no chance of leaving the Royal Rumble with the WWE Championship. AJ Styles makes his way to the stage, calls them "Kami" and says "nope" in response to their claims about winning this sunday and becoming co-WWE Champions. Styles knocks the "yep movement", but Zayn and Owens tell Styles he will have to get used to this as everyone will be doing it after this sunday, including his own family. Styles spoke how they are facing someone phenomenal this sunday before "Kami" continued to mock the WWE Champion. They go on and propose that he wrestles them both tonight in singles matches back to back.

    Daniel Bryan makes his way out and spoke about his faith in AJ this Sunday and also agrees with Owens and Sami about them being two of the best to step in the ring. Styles questioned which side Bryan was on and accepts the challenge for tonight with the premise that is going to hurt them.

    Backstage, Renee Young is with Shinsuke Nakamura to talk about the Royal Rumble. Corbin interrupts and claims that Nakamura is all "hype" but that's ok as the WWE Universe care about him. Corbin went on to say how he doesn't care about the fans, and how his resume will improve when he wins the rumble this sunday. Nakamura proposes that they "rumble" with each other tonight.

    We see a personal video of Tye Dillinger who announced his Royal Rumble spot this sunday.

    WWE 205 LIVE
    DATE - TUESDAY 23RD JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - CAPITAL ONE ARENA: WASHINGTON, DC
    ANNOUNCERS - NIGEL MCGUINNESS & VIC JOSEPH

    Smackdown GM Daniel Bryan opens the show by announcing that Enzo Amore has abdicated the Cruiserweight title and that he is no longer a part of 205 Live. Bryan announces that next week there will be a general manager named and their first act will be to make a decision about the Cruiserweight title.

    We hear from Drew Gulak who says he stands for a better 205 Live and supports the decision to appoint a general manager. He further states that they need a General Manager with the right values to stop the flying, chanting, flipping, and flopping. They need a General Manager who will turn this into a DrewTopia.

    2# Hideo Itami bt. Gentleman Jack Gallagher

    We hear from Akira Tozawa who said he could be a good boss as he walks backstage.

    TAPED - THURSDAY 4TH JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - CENTER STAGE: ATLANTA, GA
    ANNOUNCERS - PERCY WATSON, MAURO RANALLO & NIGEL MCGUINNESS


    As the show opened before the credits, we get a promo from Velveteen Dream who calls out Johnny Gargano and say's that he is not sure that Gargano is the guy to be NXT champion, especially when the choice is between him and Dream.

    1# No Way Jose bt. Cezar Bononi
    2# Bianca Belair bt. Latoya

    We see a sit down interview from earlier today with Percy Watson and the combatants for the NXT Women's Championship this Saturday - Ember Moon and Shayna Baszler. Moon referred to Baszler as a bully, Baszler said that you have to sit up waters to catch fish and Ember is a big fish in this pond. Ember questions the shortcuts that Baszler has taken which goes against the NXT code of sportsmanship and responsibility. Baszler said she has taken a different path but has worked just as hard as moon, both women go face to face before Baszler tells moon that she doesn't care what the NXT universe thinks of her, they just have to get use to her.

    We see part 2 of TM-61's tag team origin story, this part focuses on their NXT run so far and how their return will take place next week in Philadelphia.

    Authors of Pain were set for a match but took out their opponents before the bell rang by hitting a double slap in to opposite turnbuckles. They grab a mic and tell Undisputed era that this will be them this Saturday.

    Next week - Nikki Cross vs. Lacey Evans

    3# Johnny Gargano bt. Velveteen Dream Via Submission to retain his #1 contendership
    (Post-match, Andrade "cien" Almas makes his way to ringside with Zelina Vega. He holds the title up in Gargano's face before both me come to blows. Gargano hits back with a kick to the head before hitting him with a Slingshot DDT.)

    WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW
    DATE - MONDAY 29TH JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - WELLS FARGO CENTER: PHILADELPHIA, PA
    ANNOUNCERS - JONATHAN COACHMAN, MICHAEL COLE & COREY GRAVES

    Stephanie McMahon made her way to the ring and spoke of last night and the first ever women's Royal Rumble match. She introduced Asuka to the ring, McMahon told Asuka to wait before she makes her decision on who she wants to face as Alexa may not be the champion at Wrestlemania. The RAW commissioner then announces that in 4 weeks Alexa Bliss will be defending the RAW Women's Championship in the first ever all female Elimination Chamber. Asuka spoke in Japanese before saying, "At Wrestlemania, i will become champion because no one is ready for Asuka".

    Sasha Banks made her way to the ring and congratulated Asuka, before saying that she proved she could go the distance last night and she is ready for Asuka...tonight. Both women go face to face before Stephanie books the match.

    1# Braun Strowman bt. Kane in an Elimination Chamber "Last Man Standing" Qualifying match
    (Strowman lifted the platform which the announce table is on and dumped it on top of Kane to win the match, Post-match, Corey Graves interviewed Strowman on what he just did, Strowman responded by saying he did his job as it was last man standing, and that's what he did. Backstage we see EMTs rushing Kane in to an ambulance, Angle confronted Strowman but Strowman said that he will be the last man standing at Elimination Chamber, and at Wrestlemania, he will be last man standing over Brock Lesnar.)

    2# Elias bt. "Woken" Matt Hardy in an Elimination Chamber Qualifying match
    (Bray Wyatt's video flashes but he is nowhere to be seen, this distracts Hardy and led to Elias hitting a big boot and the drift away to get the 3. Post-match, Wyatt appears on screen and he is shown laughing.)

    We hear from the Miz in a handheld video interview and spoke about Roman Reigns being owed at rematch at the Intercontinental title. Miz said that he is owed a standing ovation when he beats Reigns tonight, which is what Tom Brady will get when he crushes the eagles.

    3# The Miz (w/ The Miztourage) bt. Roman Reigns to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship
    (Reigns was close to getting the win over Miz when The Miztourage make their way to the ring. Reigns takes out both Dallas and Axel with a superman punch and a spear respectively, Miz rolled Reigns with a handful of tights to get the 3.)

    4# The Revival bt. Heath Slater & Rhyno
    (Post-match, Charly Caruso interviewed Dawson and Wilder and they asked her how they'd compare with the Graham Brothers. Caruso told them she didn't know much about wrestling history, the Revival said she is like the fans that just keep chanting "ECW" to get themselves over, they study the past while the people can't stop living in it.)

    The Dudley Boyz are announced as the newest inductees in to the WWE Hall of Fame - Class of 2018.

    The Balor Club are shown on a handheld video, Balor spoke about being in the Rumble for over 57 minutes only to be eliminated by John Cena. He said that tonight, they will step over Cena.

    5# Asuka bt. Sasha Banks Via Submission

    John Cena is shown in a handheld video promo saying people have been wondering when he’s done, but he’s just getting started.

    WWE SMACKDOWN LIVE
    DATE - TUESDAY 30TH JANUARY 2018
    VENUE - WELLS FARGO CENTER: PHILADELPHIA, PA
    ANNOUNCERS - COREY GRAVES, TOM PHILLIPS & BYRON SAXTON

    Smackdown Live opens with the 2018 Royal Rumble winner - Shinsuke Nakamura. Nakamura spoke of the Rumble and the names of those who he kneed to the face, the likes of Sami Zayn, John Cena, Roman Reigns and at Wrestlemania, it will be a knee to the face of the WWE Champion. Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens interrupt, they speak of being "screwed" out of the WWE Championship on Sunday as Owens was never technically tagged in the match. They make a claim that they're due another opportunity at the WWE Championship and it will be them to face AJ Styles at Wrestlemania, not Nakamura.

    AJ Styles comes out and said that it will be he vs. Nakamura at Wrestlemania, but tonight, he proposes to turn the dream match in to a dream team by challenging Owens and Zayn to a tag team match tonight. Zayn and Owens decline the match by saying "nope" as Styles and Nakamura knock them off the apron to the floor.

    1# Rusev (w/ Aiden English) bt. Kofi Kingston (w/ The New Day), Zack Ryder & Jinder Mahal (w/ Sunil Singh) Via submission in a fatal 4-way to become the #1 contender for the WWE United States Championship
    (Bobby Roode was on commentary for this match. During the match, Sunil Singh grabs the legs of Rusev, Aiden English ran over and grabbed Singh pushing him in to Woods and Big E. The referee then ejected all men from ringside. Post-match, Rusev and Roode went face-to-face.)

    We see how the Ascension helped Breezango take twitter questions today, Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin interrupted and knocked them for making an embarrassment of the tag team division. They question whether Breezango could beat them, before tearing up the room.

    The Usos make their way to the ring and speak of how they beat Gable and Benjamin in a 2 out of 3 falls match at the Royal Rumble, they also go through the teams that have been locked down - American Alpha, American Alpha 2, The Hype Bros, Breezango, New Day and the Bar. They talk about their lifestyle and how they represent the various struggles they have before welcoming us to the Usos Penitentiary. As they leave the ring, The Bludgeon Brothers make their way to the ring and walk right past the tag team champions without taking a look in their direction.

    2# The Bludgeon Brothers bt. Local talent

    We see Daniel Bryan's twitter video from earlier today where he announced the new "Top 10" ranking system that will be voted on by Smackdown superstars, and what he and Shane will use to make decisions on the show.

    Shane McMahon is backstage when Tye Dillinger walks in to discuss what happened at the Rumble. Corbin interrupted and knocked Tye before ranting about wanting a shot. Both men have words before Shane tells them they settle things in the ring here on Smackdown.

    Renee Young conducts an in-ring interview with Charlotte Flair, they speak of the first ever women's Royal Rumble and how she wished she wasn't champion as she wanted to see how she faired against the other legends. She spoke of Ronda Rousey before saying she is going in to Wrestlemania as champion. The Riott Squad interrupt and Ruby told Charlotte her ego is as big as her father's before continuing to insult the smackdown women's champion. They get in to the ring but Charlotte fights them off momentarily before enduring a 3-on-1 beatdown culminating in a Riott Kick by Ruby.

    Carmella makes her way to the ring with a referee and looks to cash in her briefcase. Carmella went to dropkick Charlotte but instead Carmella dropkicked the referee out of the ring. Flair got up as Carmella left the ring with the briefcase.

    3# Baron Corbin bt. Tye Dillinger

    We go backstage to Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens warming up. Sami says the good news is at least one of them will be getting a WWE Title shot, it's just a shame they have to go against each other. Owens agrees to both points. Sami says then again, opportunity is all they've needed. Owens agrees and says unless Sami fails. Sami says sort of like how AJ pinned Owens on Sunday at the Rumble. Owens points out how Sami got eliminated in the Rumble match after 5 minutes. Sami says all he knows is that he won't fail in tonight's tag match because he has Owens in his corner. Owens agrees and says Sami won't fail... tonight. Owens walks off.

    4# Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable bt.Breezango
    5# Shinsuke Nakamura & AJ Styles bt. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn
    (There was much discension from Zayn and Owens throughout the match, this ended with Zayn walking out of the match and leaving Owens. Post-match, Zayn is watching what just happened on the monitor. Renee Young walks up and asks if this is the end of their friendship and Sami says nope. Sami says this is all about opportunity. Owens has had several titles while he's been overlooked. Sami says he's been known as Kevin Owens' friend but after next week he will be known as the guy who beat Kevin Owens and then after WWE Fastlane he will be known as the man who beat AJ Styles for the WWE Title.)

Strowman called this a team effort and says Bliss is pretty cute. Bliss thinks Strowman is pretty cute as well, comparing him to a Mack Truck. She adds they are “going all the way.” A loud “YES” chant starts up. Bliss adds all the way to a victory in the Mixed Match Challenge.
