The January 16th edition of WWE Raw comes live from Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
With the Royal Rumble less than two weeks away, plans for the show are beginning to come into focus.
Seven days ago Judgment Day emerged victorious from Tag Team Turmoil to earn a shot at the The Usos and the Raw Tag Team Titles. In the process, Finn Balor was ‘injured’ by Otis and forced out of the match, being replaced by Dominik Mysterio.
Out for revenge, Judgment Day will take on Alpha Academy in Cincinnati.
Bobby Lashley also returned to the red brand on January 9th when he attacked Austin Theory. Backstage the former World Champion was greeted by MVP who suggested that the Hurt Business get back together. Tonight we find out what’s next for the All-Mighty.
Mustafa Ali will also be in action against Solo Sikoa.
