WWE Raw Results
January 29th, 2018
Report by Doug Enriquez for ProWrestling.com
IN RING SEGMENT
We start the show with a very happy Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie is all smiles, and Michael Cole, Corey Graves, and Jonathan Coachman are on commentary. Welcome back coach! We hear that there is going to be a rematch for the Intercontinental Championship tonight, when Roman Reigns challenges The Miz.
Stephanie welcomes everyone to Monday Night Raw. She says that last week they celebrated the 25th anniversay of Raw, and tonight they kick off 25 more. She recaps the Royal Rumble, including talking about the legends who entered the match, including what happened after the women’s match with “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey. She said all that happened last night, but tonight is about the woman who defeated 29 other women in the inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble, Asuka.
Stephanie congratulates Asuka on her win last night, and she said she would normally ask Asuka who she will face at WrestleMania but she may want to wait, because WWE Raw Women’s Champion” Alexa Bliss will defend her championship in the first ever women’s Elimination Chamber match in 4 weeks! Stephanie gives Asuka the mic and tells her to say whatever she’d like to say.
Asuka gets on the mic, and starts to speak Japanese. She ends her promo by saying in English “At WrestleMania, I will win the championship!”
Sasha Banks’ music hits, and the Boss makes her way to the ring. She gets on the mic and says she wants to congratulate Asuka on her victory. But last night, Asuka won, but she proved that she can go the distance. Asuka has been saying that no one is ready for Asuka, but she is ready for Asuka, TONIGHT! Stephanie makes the match official.
After the match, the announce team announces that tonight there will be several qualifying matches to see who faces off against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, starting with Braun Strowman vs. Kane in a Last Man Standing match!
Elimination Chamber Qualification Match: BRAUN STROWMAN vs. KANE
Strowman comes to the ring and immediately starts to take out weapons. Each man starts beating each other with whatever they can find. Strowman & Kane start to fight through the WWE Universe, and they make their way close to the announce table. Strowman hits Kane with chair shot after chair shot, and then crushes him with some staging equipment. The announce team books it and Kane is laid out right in front of the announce table. Strowman surveys the area and decides to lift the entire announce table AND platform onto Kane. Kane cannot answer the 10 count and Strowman wins in a squash!
Winner: Braun Strowman
After the match Braun looks on as the paramedics attend to Kane and try to get him out from underneath the platform and table. They bring out the stretcher and Corey Graves grabs a microphone and asks Braun what he just did, reminding him that Kane is a human being! Braun says he did his job. Kurt Angle said it was last man standing and he did what he was supposed to do. He lifts his arms up and yells “BRAAAAUUUUNN!”
