WWE is building to the Royal Rumble premium live event late next month in St. Petersburg, Florida but before we get to that show the company is also loading up for a special edition of Monday Night Raw in San Diego on Jan. 1, 2024, appropriately entitled “Day 1.”
During this week’s episode of Raw, multiple new matches were announced for said show:
- Becky Lynch vs. Nia Jax
They’ve been building to this one for years, really, with plenty of callbacks to Jax injuring Lynch and leaving her bloodied. That was at least in part what led to Lynch becoming “The Man” and the star she is today, however.
- Tegan Nox & Natalya vs. Shayna Baszler & Zoey Stark
Kayden Carter & Katana Chance won the women’s tag team titles and these two teams decided backstage they
- Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley vs. Ivy Nile
Nile stood up to Ripley in recent weeks, helping out The Creed Brothers in their issues with The Judgment Day. It was only a matter of time before these two powerhouses squared up, and they’ll do it here.
That’s in addition to the Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre world heavyweight championship match that was already announced for the show.
That’s one hell of a card right there, folks.
Anyway, here are all the videos from Raw this week:
