RAW News – New Champion, Balor in, Strowman Out and more

Raw emanated from Memphis, Tennessee this week and quite a few things went down that are worthy of discussion.

Braun’s Rampage

  • The show kicked off with Braun Strowman chasing Baron Corbin throughout the backstage of the arena, launching the Singh brothers and causing general mayhem.
  • Braun pulls the driver out of the limo we saw Vince pull up in earlier
  • He proceeds to smash the window of the limo and pull the door off its hinges before Baron gets out and runs away
  • Braun went to chase after Baron before he runs into Mr. McMahon who fines Braun $100,000 and removes him from the Universal Title Match at the Royal Rumble against Brock Lesnar
  • Braun then tips over Vince’s Limo in anger
  • Nice way to start off Raw – we will have more news on WHY this happened later today.

Universal Title Fatal 4-way

  • Vince McMahon came out to the ring and was interrupted immediately by John Cena – who asked Vince for another chance to step up against Brock
  • He is interrupted by Drew McIntyre who says Cena’s time is up and his time is now
  • Baron Corbin enters the fray to little reaction
  • Finn Balor then enters and says to Vince that he never believed in him which Vince agrees with when compared to the others in the ring.
  • Finn attacks Baron and Drew ends up standing tall at the end of the segment
  • Vince Makes a fatal 4 way to determine who will face Brock at the Rumble

NEW Intercontinental Champion

Dean Ambrose v Seth Rollins v Bobby Lashley for the IC Title

  • Ambrose, Rush and Rollins cut promo’s – the only one worth anything was from Lio Rush, the other two were corny and just plain shitty.
  • Lashley picks up the win after spearing Ambrose and is the NEW INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMP

Womens Tag Team Titles

  • We finally get the reveal of the Women’s Tag Titles and they are looking pretty good in my opinion
  • We find out that the first ever Women’s tag champs will be crowned at Elimination chamber when 6 teams- 3 from Raw and 3 from Smackdown compete inside Elimination Chamber
  • We do not yet know who the teams will be
Women’ Tag Team Titles

Main Event Fatal 4-way

  • I really enjoyed this match for what it was and I kind of assumed Corbin was in the match solely to eat the pin… but I was wrong
  • At the end, Corbin grabs a chair but Cena AA’s him, Drew lays out Cena then Balor lays out Drew
  • Balor hits the Coup de Gras on Cena to pick up the victory
  • It is BALOR v BROCK at Royal Rumble
