OOfficial Discussion Thread for: RAW (January 6, 2020)

Tonight on RAW: with just 3 weeks to go until the Royal Rumble PPV, WWE's got some work to do on Mondays....

First and foremost, absentee WWE Champion Brock Lesnar returns, presumably to get into the mix for a title defense at said PPV.... his last serious feud saw him lose the WWEU Title to Seth Rollins last summer.... Brock then spent the fall screwing around with Cain Velasquez/Rey Mysterio while gaining the WWE Title... Rollins insisting he's the best man for the job seems to be his M.O., and would instantly draw an objection from Kevin Owens.... after last week, you can add Samoa Joe to that list...

I'd be shocked if it wasn't one of those 3 who emerges as Lesnar's next PPV challenger.... if anything, KO feels like he might be WWE's bigger project right now, so he might be slow simmering to be Brock's WM challenger, in which case, I say bring on Brock vs. Joe II (the first one was wasted on a silly "Great Balls of Fire" PPV that nobody watched)...

Also, 2 matches confirmed:

Mysterio gets his US Title rematch against Andrade... hard to see what Rey would get out of a win, and plus, all signs point to him doing a storyline with Dominick leading to a tag match at Mania.... should still be a pretty great match, though...

And the tag titles are also on the line.... champs the Viking Raiders vs. Gallows/Anderson vs. Street Profits.... story here is that the OC has had the Radiers' number in non-title matches, but the Profits have scored multiple wins over the OC, so PARITY~!

The rest: Becky defending against Asuka at the Rumble is confirmed and just needs basic maintenance (although Becky did also introduce the concept that her contract was almost up last week, so there could be bigger swerves ahead)... AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton is shaping up as a very viable underneath program, although it likely ends with both of them being added to the Rumble Match itself as bigger favorites (means they can burn the one-on-one for free TV, though)... Drew McIntyre seemed to execute a face turn last week, and could well be kicking off the new year with a new push and a strong showing in the Rumble.... Erick Rowan's Mystery Cage will continue to be lame.... and sadly, last week's Lana/Lashley/Rusev WrestleCrap was a Giant Ratings Success* so expect plenty more of that....

* NOTE: it was not a giant ratings success. RAW's 3rd hour ratings declined slightly less than usual, and that minor improvement was attributed to the wedding. Combined with the fact that said wedding is the exact sort of nonsense that Vince tends to like, and we're more or less stuck with the reality that WWE has rationalized that segment into a Massive Success that fans want more of. Which is not the case.

That is all. End communication...

The flOOr is yours, OO Nation. Don't wait till after 11pm to post, either. Pre-show previewing and prognosticating is certainly welcome. So discuss, debate, and rate!

Hopefully they start with the women again so I can ignore the rest of the show and get a nap in before bedtime.





Well you know, just because these young men have little education and live in squalor, it doesn't entitle them to commit antisocial behaviour and get away with it.

Y'know, families really do absolutely fucking suck. They're the true source of everything that fucks up someone's life. Would have been better off to have been born into a vat and raised by a government robot.

Oh look! It's that guy what does stuff once or twice a year but inexplicably ends up holding a major title regardless of whether or not he's around during any given calendar quarter! I am excited! They should've totally just mashed this in with the Terrible Relationship Drama and gotten it all out of the way in one go.

Bobby Lashley fighting Bork Lester?!? My god man, what an absurd idea!

This could be an interesting turn of events! Or not at all. It'd be pretty funny if they stuck someone deserving of either a big push or an increased push in the number two spot who then proceeds to get Lesnar out before #3 shows up.

What the fuck kinda carny nonsense is this? Well, we haven't seen Brock vs. Brock yet so why the hell not?

Also, Paul E. is lookin' awful pre-myocardial infarction pale out there.

So...Cain must not be ready?

And, Brock could easily win the Rumble so that they have another guy as winning from #1, instead of that other guy.

Maybe there's a rule about referees needing to actually see a thing when it happens rather than via a replay in order to respond to it accordingly, but it still seems to me that if they can show replays of a thing that happens early in a show about a million times throughout the night/week/month, they could pop up a replay of moments like that on the ol' 'Tron for the ref.

Edit: Or, it now occurs to me, are we drifting back into coming up with bullshit reasons in order to not have matches happen during commercials? I'm guessing this is perhaps more in the realm of the usual "shenanigans add value!!!!" stuff.

So....mask vs hair match? I’d be ok with more Andrade vs Rey.

Or Cain is the reason he's eliminated from the Rumble. But then they get to have another match. That Cain might win. And then Brock somehow has to get it back before WM. So they get to have another match. Agayn.

Or Lesnar wins, challenges himself for WM, and puts on a 30+ minute five star solo match in the main event which can never be topped, so WWE shuts down the next day.

Or something else. Maybe the Cain stuff.

Yeah, this was my immediate thought -- Cain Velasquez either shows up to distract Brock Lesnar and gets him eliminated, or is healthy enough for a two-minute sequence where he comes in as a surprise Royal Rumble entrant, tosses Lesnar and then gets immediately dumped while his eyes are still on Lesnar.

Either way, maybe that gets the belt off Lesnar without him having to take a loss, so the inevitable Lesnar-Velasquez rematch doesn't have to be the WWE Title program.

That's the point either Paul E. wasn't clear on or I was so flabbergasted at the idea that I couldn't determine if it was on the line or not in the actual Rumble itself. So it might be a de facto Heavyweight Champeenchimp elimination match for all I know.

Gotta be Bray's severed head lantern in Rowan's cage, right?

Has Andrade been too distracted by The Cans™ to learn The Inglés?

No, they haven't. My guess is that the booking team hasn't decided yet whether the title is going to be on the line.

I know what's in Rowan's cage! Orton took a shit in it one day and he never had the nerve to clean it out.

OK, so then what the hell was that with the two guys in suits rushing Akira Tozawa in the ring, and the show then cutting to commercial while Vic Joseph was in the middle of a sentence? Did anyone else see that, or am I having a stroke or something?

ETA: Wait, or was that a fan in the ring, and the guys in suits were security? That would make more sense, but I thought Tozawa was still in there.
