Raw General Manager Kurt Angle announced the rules of the Women’s Royal Rumble Match
Miami - This is a new year, and the first order of the business of Kurt Angle, the crude general manager, brought good news for the WWE Universe in 2018: Announcing that the woman's first ever Royal Rumble match will be hung under the same rule, Because the men's match for long periods. This means that 30 players are eliminated, when the superstars go to the top rope and both feet touch the floor, and the winner gets a championship match at WrestleMania.
After that, however, it was normally back in business, as well as Cicero and Shams opposed the decision of pairing with Seth Rollins to join with his son Jason Jordan - a quick union that gave The Raw its raw tag teams Lost the title - and the match again demand. He himself brought Jordan out and he approved Angle for a match between the young champion and Sesro, on which Rollins reached the obstacles and even more importantly, remove some intelligence.
In the architect's eyes, Jordan had to learn a lot about teammate, especially to avoid running into 2-one loss without thinking of how such a decision could affect the whole team. Rollins left some harsh love for Jordan, stating that when he was in the ring for the sake of his mate and his title, he did not have high hopes for the "self-absorbed" Jordan opportunity against Sirsso. Like to clarify its point, The King of Swing attacks Jordan from behind, stopping the match in his earnest.
Well Seth Rollins is surprised that in a match, Kingsley had clearly lost his teammate Jason Jordan, the young contestant had won in his first match as the raw tag team champion, but In Raw's inaugural competition (before 2018 first, not less).
He fought downwards, also, after a targeted cessation by Cesareo, effectively provided a footed mat under the stretch to the master. A slam that first used to take Jordan leg was considered to be the inevitable doom, but Jordan fought to stay in the fight between both Sisro attacks and a cheap shot of a shamus.
Rollins did well on his promise to see his partner's back, cutting Shame's, who looked like a brag-kick, before he would hand over the match to Kaiserro. With the King of Swing distracted, Jordan administered an Angle Slam-Girlbrecker combo for victory.
He also tried to become a better partner, with Rollin's hand standing out in a gesture raised by hands, which left Kingsley and both were impressed. If anything, it seemed to share the opinions of Raw's comments team: Jordan may be cocky, but that's good.

Bray Wyatt def. Apollo Crews
Even so, "Vocans" are battling with Matt Harty's hand in the last week, Bra Wate defeated Apollo Crew to win the 2018 win, but the time for celebrating Newspapers was low.
Cruise was trying to bring himself to the next level and he made a point to use his athletics against former WWE Champion. But after Wyatt, Titus Worldwide's Dana Brooke cut the spinning seat-out powerbomb to administer the Future of Fear, to motivate the last second rally from Cruise, and to administer Abigail sister for all three.
Upon preparing for Vioat ease, Hardy took a page from his enemy's playbook and appeared on Titenton, which promised to eliminate the voyat's darkness before removing it. As soon as she started crisp, Hardy's image was multiplied on the screen, thereby causing omnipotent effects that caused Vioat to move abnormally in the ring. Make this a wheel as a good start for the Br Vet's 2018, but Hardy made it clear that a lot of Monday's remains in the year.
“WOKEN” Matt Hardy pops up on the screen. Hardy says he transformed all the fireflies into WOKEN WARRIORS. Wyatt cannot escape his WOKEN WISDOM for much longer. Hardy is all around him. He’s the omniscient presence around him. Once Sister Abigail is gone, he will DELETE him. Hardy laughs while the screen multiplies a bunch of times. A loud “DELETE” chant picks up.
Asuka def. Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss
Last week, Asuka attacked Alexa Bliss and announced the women's Royal Rumble match. This week, the raw lady champion got a taste of what Asuka could really do if she won the first Rumble match in the encounter, which was not just worthy of WrestleMania but the potential WrestleMania preview
That Raw General Manager Kurt Angle did not face only the only mercy for the first five feet of the championship for the conflict between Asuka and Bliss; Not only did Asuka power through a sewing opening sequence by the champion, but the goddess's promoter Nia Jacques was very busy giving the very chicken soup to the Inzo Amore sufferers with flu.
Alexa's best chance was a cat-and-mouse game that paid dividends, thanks to a stubborn kick for the stomach, which brings joy to a monster running. Alexa kept pressure, perhaps someone was about to come close to break the unprofitable streak of Asuka, but a slap on the face proved a fatal mistake by Little Miss Bliss. With his fighting spirit awakened, Asuka threw a random rally, which ended in a match-ending Armbar, which would give him an opportunity in the future.
Braun Strowman def. Heath Slater & Rhyno
Rhyno's plan to touch the Heath Slater was not found in accordance with the previous week's plan by throwing him into a fire against Kane. The follow up of Man Beast was not so hot, hoping to create an example for his partner by showing his partnership, Rhyno stepped into the ring with Braun Stormen - which, incidentally, with Cain, the universal title of Brock Lesnar Royal Challenge will challenge these Triple Threat matches.
Not only did Stormen beat Rhino, The Monsters in Man convinced the referee that Slater to join the competition and turn it into a sudden elephant match. Unfortunately, Stormen operated through two-a-snail, causing both partners to sprinkle in the corner and pancake and eliminated Rhino with the Running Parsalam. Slater showed Stormon some strength for trying to slam the second time for the second time, but the rhetoric of The Gift of Distortion would not be stopped: They surprised the two Rhythm and Stator's three match-match powerlames. This is the unfortunate start of 2018 for the one-man band, but if he shows it next week, then he can hard work to give credit to any person at any time.
A "One More Time" chant picks up. Strowman grabs Rhyno, but Slater attacks him Strowman swats him away and hits a Running Powerslam to a big ovation The crowd once again chants, "One More Time!" Strowman grabs Rhyno and hits him with a Running Powerslam to an even bigger ovation. Strowman's music plays, but it stops when he grabs Slater for a huge pop.

Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns def. Samoa Joe
Observe Corruption. Roman Reagan, who did not win his first solo victory at Samoa in the InterOctinal Titles Remake, received retribution for Dean Ambrose, defended the Shield's honor and managed to set a bet in which the title of Big Dog would be if he Self disqualified
This warning was the result of excessive aggression, which both of them had declared Roman disqualified last week and earned a $ 5000 fine for removing referee John Cun. Around this time, The Big Dog had to take a flag for the flag of Embrose, who was injured and kept a flag to keep a check (especially the cone to catch the straps again) to maintain his title, and Took advantage of the hesitation in the early stages of the match, even according to their standards, the Samotion Submission Machine was in rare form, in which the monarchy was to be split with the crime, which the champion had on his feet And was looking wildly for an answer.
Even when the Roman withdrew himself in the match, he disqualified him on many occasions, as a result the referee pulled him away and cooled his cool, which allowed himself to reunite. And those who began to take advantage of exploitation to successfully exploit when they ruled in Kan, could have faced a collision, which could have been disqualified, if the person who had not pressed his attack, to continue. A brutal climber clutch was closed later in the moment, but was left in a tank of the regime, which was throwing on his shoulder and to put a quick classic in a close to flirt with the jerky breakdown Spear .

Heyman is upset that the normal “challenger” has become plural in “challengers.” Lesnar has to defend his title against both Braun Strowman and Kane. Strowman is seen watching backstage. If Strowman beats Kane, Lesnar loses the title. If Kane beats Strowman, Lesnar loses the title. Heyman says he didn’t say anyone will beat Lesnar because that’ll never happen. Heyman says Lesnar will defend the title 100%. You can line up Strowman – Lesnar would defeat him. You could line up Kane – Lesnar would defeat him. You could line up all 30 superstars in the Royal Rumble and have them fight collectively or individually, and Lesnar would beat them. Lesnar is the most dominant champion in WWE. Lesnar fears no challenger or challengers. Lesnar doesn’t believe in monsters and doubts Kane is the Devil’s Favorite Demon. Heyman has been to hell and knows Lesnar is the devil’s favorite. Heyman speaks Latin before throwing the microphone down.
