It was recently reported that USA Network, the broadcaster which airs WWE RAW live in the United States, was “furious” with the recent decline in ratings, and wanted more “adult” and “violent” content to feature on the show. This week’s TLC event saw Randy Orton set The Fiend on fire to close the show.
Meanwhile, this week’s RAW would open with Charlotte Flair, who returned at WWE TLC and became a Grand Slam Champion. Full results from RAW are available here.
WWE RAW: Legends Night takes place live in the ThunderDome on January 4th, 2021. Viewers in the UK and Ireland can watch via BT Sports 1 HD at 1am.
