Raw General Manager Kurt Angle announced the rules of the Women’s Royal Rumble Match

MIAMI — It’s a new year, and Raw General Manager Kurt Angle’s first order of business rang in 2018 with good tidings for the WWE Universe: Announcing that the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble Match would be contested under the exact same rules as the longstanding Men’s match. That means 30 entrants, eliminations occur w...

Raw Tag Team Champion Jason Jordan def. Cesaro

Well, consider Seth Rollins surprised. In a match The Kingslayer had openly assumed his tag team partner Jason Jordan was going to lose, the young competitor instead pulled out a victory in his first match as Raw Tag Team Champion, knocking off Cesaro in Raw’s opening contest (the first of 2018, no less).

He fought fr...

Bray Wyatt def. Apollo Crews

Still reeling from an attack at the hands of “Woken” Matt Hardy last week, Bray Wyatt got himself off to a winning start in 2018 by defeating Apollo Crews, but The Reaper of Souls’ New Year’s celebration was short-lived.

Crews was looking to bring himself to the next level and made it a point to use his athletic...

Asuka def. Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss

Last week, Asuka declared for the Women’s Royal Rumble Match by attacking Alexa Bliss. This week, the Raw Women’s Champion got a taste of what Asuka might actually do if she wins the Rumble Match in a first-time bout that wasn’t just WrestleMania-worthy, but a potential WrestleMania preview.

That Raw General Manag...

Braun Strowman def. Heath Slater & Rhyno

Rhyno’s plan to toughen up Heath Slater by throwing him into the fire against Kane did not go as planned last week. The Man Beast’s follow-up didn’t turn out so hot, either. Hoping to set an example for his partner by showing his own mettle, Rhyno stepped into the ring with Braun Strowman — who, coincidentally, will ch...

Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns def. Samoa Joe

Consider the curse broken. Roman Reigns didn’t just score his first-ever singles win over Samoa Joe in their Intercontinental Title rematch, he got retribution for Dean Ambrose, defended the honor of The Shield and managed to navigate a stipulation that would have cost The Big Dog his title if he got himself disqualifi...

Cedric Alexander & Goldust def. Drew Gulak & Ariya Daivari

Enzo Amore closed out a fantastic 2017 as WWE Cruiserweight Champion, but a bout of the flu trucked Muscles Marinara and sent him into the ER to ring in 2018. That means Cedric Alexander’s title opportunity is on hold, but luckily, the ascendant Cruiserweight got some help to start his year off right.

As Drew Gulak an...

Finn Bálor, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson def. Elias & The Miztourage

Nerds and not-good brothers beware: Finn Bálor, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson are together again. When Bálor was tasked with finding partners for a Six-Man Tag Team Match against Elias & The Miztourage, he recruited his old running mates from Japan, and the reunion paid dividends instantly.

About the only posit...

Kane attacked Universal Champion Brock Lesnar

Kane may be the living embodiment of single-minded destruction, but even he knows beating Brock Lesnar is going to require some strategy. But while The Big Red Machine certainly showed his smarts by offering Braun Strowman the chance to join forces as WWE’s “alpha monsters” and take down Lesnar at Royal Rumble, The Mon...
