RAW has a lot to live up to tonight. As the first show after the fantastic Royal Rumble match and event last night, there are endless opportunities to capitalize off of. Although the winner of the Royal Rumble match Bianca Belair is a SmackDown talent, WWE.com has the following as a preview:
“Will Royal Rumble Match winners Edge and/or SmackDown’s Bianca Belair emerge to name which World Champion they will challenge at The Showcase of the Immortals? Who else might step into the spotlight as Superstars begin to position themselves for a place on The Grandest Stage of Them All?”
There isn’t any other preview or advertisement for the women but we do have new Tag Team Champions. On the Kick Off show last night, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler became two-time champs as they took out Charlotte Flair and RAW Women’s Champion Asuka. Flair’s feud with Lacey Evans continue to brew as Evans cost Flair & Asuka their titles. As for Asuka, now that the tag titles are off of her, maybe she can focus on the road ahead with a solid feud.
A huge return took place at the Rumble and that was Naomi. Naomi is technically a RAW talent and hopefully, we will see her tonight.
Rhea Ripley is rumored to be moving to the main roster. Will she show up on tonight’s RAW or is she SmackDown bound?
Lana also returned and finally got her revenge on Nia Jax as she eliminated her from the Royal Rumble match.
Hopefully, we will see a reset and a fresh RAW instead of what has been booked for the past number of weeks.
As always, feel free to discuss tonight’s show in the comment section below!! :)
