I have done some truly amazing things to get the last bit of toothpaste out of the tube.
WWE Raw Results:
Raw starts with the men’s Raw team in the ring with Adam Pearce. Pearce congratulates the team on winning last night at Survivor Series and then asks each member on why they deserve a title match against the WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre. AJ Styles is first because he was the “Captain” and Sheamus is quick to interrupt and say he was not his captain. Sheamus recalls his friendship with Drew and AJ cuts him off by saying he better not be gifted a title match because they are friends. Keith Lee then chimes in and says he deserves to be next in line because he pinned Smackdown’s champion. Riddle then talks about how he beat King Corbin and that should warrant a match. Pearce then goes to Braun Strowman and he takes offense with Pearce calling him “last” and gives him a headbutt before Raw goes to commercial.
A video is shown from earlier in the day and the Hurt Business is walking backstage and they run into the New Day. The Hurt Business thro shade at the New Day for losing to the Street Profits last night and want a title shot. Xavier Woods then answers the challenge by bringing up that they beat them last week and he is then goaded into the match by Cedric Alexander.
The Hurt Business def. The New Day by countout, the New Day retain the titles. MVP goads the New Day into restarting the match by calling them cowards and such.
