The second episode of WWE RAW in 2020 took place with a fully loaded card where a historic Fist Fight was the main event of the night. A number of rematches were set where AJ Styles, Bobby Lashley, and Buddy Murphy took on Randy Orton, Rusev and Aleister Black, respectively.
Plus, Brock Lesnar was in attendance on the show that took place at the Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky. Here are the results,
Randy Orton kicked off WWE Raw with a promo on Royal Rumble and his current rival AJ Styles who soon came out to have a verbal encounter. This session was interrupted by Drew McIntyre who claimed his Claymore is bigger than RKO. He wanted to face both these stars in a match resulting in a triple threat.
Thus, Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles vs. Drew McIntyre became the opening contest of WWE RAW. Gallows and Anderson tried to intervene in the contest but received a Claymore and RKO, respectively.
Orton was in control by the end nailing the Styles Clash on AJ and following with the RKO. But Drew McIntyre hit him with a sudden Claymore Kick from behind to get the win.
Ricochet competed in the next match against Mojo Rawley. He went for a springboard cum crossbody but Mojo caught him and put on shoulders. But Ricochet slid out and hit the Recoil. He nailed Mojo with a 630-splash to pick up the win.
Charlotte Flair competed against Sarah Logan on WWE Raw in a rematch from last week. A brawl broke out between them after which Flair sent her to the ring and locked in the Figure Eight. Logan tapped to let Flair get the win.
Brock Lesnar appeared on WWE Raw where his advocate Paul Heyman tried to cut a promo on Royal Rumble but the crowd continued to boo him. R-Truth came out to crack some funny jokes until Lesnar dropped him with two F-5s. Truth was later helped back to backstage when Mojo Rawley came out and leveled him to win the 24/7 Title.
Bobby Lashley competed next on WWE Raw against Rusev. He was in control hitting a belly-to-belly suplex and a German suplex. Lana distracted him after this allowing Lashley to take a shot in his knees.
Liv Morgan appeared trying to help but Lana threw drinks on her face and sent her into the barrier. Lashley took advantage of this and nails Rusev with a spear to get the win.
WWE RAW Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders – Erik and Ivar issued an open challenge. The Singh Brothers accepted it only to get squashed within a few seconds after getting hit by the Viking Experience.
WWE Raw women’s champion, Becky Lynch appeared in the ring to make the Royal Rumble title match official with Asuka. After both the competitors signed the papers, Asuka spit the green mist on Becky’s face. But Becky recuperated from it, really quick to send Asuka message with the mic in hand.
Aleister Black competed in the fourth match against Buddy Murphy to entertain the WWE Raw fans. It was a back and forth bout that witnessed Murphy landing the Murphy’s Law on Black.
But Black put his feet on the ropes to avoid the pinfall loss. Murphy wasted time to mock Black which forced him to digest the Black Mass. Another one followed on Murphy to earn Black the pinfall win.
Erick Rowan squashed an enhancement talent with his pendant Iron Claw Chokeslam.
The already announced Fist Fight was the main event of WWE Raw where Big Show, Kevin Owens, and Samoa Joe took on Seth Rollins and Authors of Pain. Despite initial domination by the babyfaces, the heels came back after Buddy Murphy arrived at the scene to help out Rollins and Co.
He hit a low blow on Show who was about to deliver a Knock-Out Punch. AOP sent Joe and Owens through a table whereas Murphy helped Rollins to nail a Stomp on Show. As three members of the babyface team were down, the referee declared Rollins and AOP as the winners to close the show.
