What to watch on Monday Night Raw
The Raw Women’s Championship matchup at the Royal Rumble will pit Ireland vs. Scotland as champion Becky Lynch will defend her title against Doudrop. The challenger earned the title shot during the main even of last week’s show, triumphing over Bianca Belair and Liv Morgan in a triple threat match to become the new No. 1 contender. We’ll see Lynch address Doudrop on tonight’s show.
We’ll also see Bobby Lashley respond to WWE Champion Brock Lesnar tonight as they gear up for their Royal Rumble matchup for the title in 12 days. Lesnar owned Lashley on the microphone last week so we’ll see how the challenger responds.
We had major developments in both tag team divisions last week. On the men’s side, the Alpha Academy ended the near five-month reign of RK-Bro to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions. On the women’s side, the team of Rhea Ripley and Nikki A.S.H formally broke up, resulting in Nikki attacking her former partner. We’ll see the fallout from these two events tonight.
