The go-home episode of WWE Raw for Royal Rumble 2021 will be presented with a stacked card where the WWE Champion is returning on TV alongside his challenger. Charlotte Flair will be in action while Riddle will be seen in a Gauntlet Match. Plus, the Women’s Title will be on the line on the show that went down from the Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida.
The WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has been absent from WWE TV after getting contracted with the COVID-19 virus. Now his quarantine days are over and he’s cleared to be in action. So, the top babyface superstar of WWE RAW will make his presence felt and hype the upcoming title defense at Royal Rumble.
Speaking of the title match, his legendary challenger will also be present on the show, as well. Now that Goldberg’s title match challenge was officially accepted, he’d be back on Monday Night to confront McIntyre in a segment that must be going physical. WWE is promoting this headliner segment where McIntyre will send a message to The Myth.
Charlotte Flair has been dealing with some family issues on WWE Raw, lately where her father has turned on her and built up a romantic alliance with Lacey Evans. The two continue to provide distractions for her and that trend might just continue, tonight as The Queen is scheduled to face Shayna Baszler in a one-on-one contest. Baszler and her tag partner Nia Jax seem focused to be on the women’s tag title. A win for Baszler will surely ensure a rematch.
Matt Riddle is feuding with Bobby Lashley and his Hurt Business brigadier for the past few weeks on WWE Raw. He is chasing the US Title picture but the raw strength of Lashley seems too much for him to handle. The title hunt continues for him though when he will face the Raw Tag Team Champions Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander, and MVP in a Gauntlet Match. If Riddle wins, then he will get a United States Title opportunity.
WWE Raw Preview (25/01/21): Alexa Bliss vs Asuka
For months now, WWE Raw Women’s Champion Asuka was staying without any opponent. She hasn’t defended her title for months, now while focusing on her Women’s Tag Title reign with Charlotte Flair. Now for the first time in more than two months, Asuka will put her Championship on the line against Alexa Bliss.
Last week, Bliss put up a dominant performance to pin Asuka via clean pinfall to earn this title opportunity. But obviously, she was driven with some black force of The Fiend Bray Wyatt. This bond is likely to continue which keeps Asuka’s title reign in jeopardy. Could this be the night, the demonic creature returns? Or we’ll have to wait until Royal Rumble for that? The go-home episode of WWE Raw for the PPV will bring answers to that.
