Bobby Lashley and Brock Weigh-in WWE Raw January 24
WWE Raw episode opened with the segment of the weigh-in for the challenger and Universal Champion. After the official weigh-in, Paul Heyman and MVP talked some trash to bring their case in front of a live audience. The Beast Brock Lesnar left the arena without any action.
I don’t think this segment was necessary. There is no such thing in WWE earlier. WWE is doing well with the booking of no physical altercation between Brock and Bobby. But overall, this segment was not up to the level of superstars involved.
Bianca Belair vs Queen Zelina WWE Raw January 24 Results
WWE provide this match to bring some excitement for the Royal Rumble event. Bianca Belair controlled the early portion of the match by using some of the power moves of her arsenal. After hitting a dropkick, Belair went for the vertical suplex. In return, she gets a stunner. Zelina went after her and hit her on the middle turnbuckle. But, The EST was ready for her and hit her with the press slam. The Queen countered. She caught her in a submission. But, Bianca Belair had seen enough of her. She countered Queen’s Code Red and hit K.O.D for the win.
Both perform exceptionally well. Although it was unknown what excitement WWE wanted to build with this match the match was very good. Maybe Zelina became a factor in the elimination of Belair. But we are seeing something bigger for EST at WrestleMania.
US Championship Match WWE Raw January 24 Results
Ko won the non-title match last week. So, he got a championship match with Damien Priest this week. KO wanted to hit the stunner early but Damien avoided it. Both competitors traded body shorts. But Kevin Owens controlled the match by hitting him with a back elbow. Priest hit a big boot to the face of Owens. Damien Priest blocked a kick from KO and ran him to the barricade. Both got back, Owens wanted to hit senton instead got hit by Chokeslam.
After this, Damien Priest unloaded on KO but KO replied with tornado DDT and a frog splash. Damien was kicked out. Damien Priest went crazy and started to stomp KO’s head. The referee tried to separate them but Priest did not go away. Hence, Owens won win disqualification. The Archer of Infamy retained his title.
WWE gave us a pay-per-view quality match this week. Both competitors are very talented. KO is going to get a match at upcoming events also as the feud is not ending anytime soon. Maybe This feud ends with KO winning the title.
Triple Threat Women Match WWE Raw January 24 Results
WWE gave us a triple threat match between Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley, and Dana Brooke with Nikki, Tamina and Carmella. Brooke and Tamina started the match. Brooke made a tag to Ripley controlled the match by knocking off her opponent. A feud broke down in the middle between Ripley and Mella. The heel tapped out to Ripley.
This match was just filler. WWE brought these faces in front of the fans because they are entering Royal Rumble. This match highlighted Rhea Ripley which means she is still in good books.
Randy Orton vs Gable WWE Raw January 24 Results
Randy Orton and Chad Gable started with some mat wrestling. Gable is a technical master so he tried to hit some counter and moves to submit Orton. Gable used his forearms to punish Orton. Randy returned the favour with some uppercuts. Orton brings the feud outside and hit Gable with a suplex on the announce table. Otis provided a timely distraction to allow Chad gable to control the match.
Gable hit a textbook moonsault and punish the knee of the Apex Predator. Randy Orton mounted a comeback with his trademark backbreaker. This move followed by the rope hung DDT and Randy started feeling it as a time for RKO. Otis again distracted him by attacking Riddle outside. But, this distraction was not enough as Randy went for the Punt kick. Gable got enough time to counter it into a knee lock. Randy recovered and hit him withR.K.O for the win.
This match was very good. Gable is a talented wrestler and whenever he got the opportunity he impresses. Randy Orton is a legend and his style meshed with every superstar he step foot with for in-ring action. This match will surely be repeated again if WWE wanted to bring some limelight on Chad gable.
AJ Styles vs Austin Theory WWE Raw Match
Austin Theory is on a role now as he is continuously battling top WWE Wrestlers. Last week he won a match against Finn Balor and this week he is going against AJ Styles. Both started the match with some tackles and pinning combinations. Styles hit the younger competitor with a superkick to send him out of the ring. Theory stomped Styles in the face with a double stomp on the middle turnbuckle. With a suplex toss for a near-fall, he sent The Phenomenal One flying. For a couple of two counts, the veteran hit a massive knee drop and a snap suplex.
As we went to the commercial, Theory dropped kicked Styles from the top rope to the floor. When we returned, Theory was still in command as he landed a backbreaker. As Styles built up a head of steam, they began trading strikes. He got a two-count with a suplex neck breaker and a sliding forearm. Theory scored another near-fall with a fantastic rolling blockbuster. Styles hit a Pele kick to counter a powerbomb. Styles applied the calf crusher but he found ropes. Theory tried to pin him by using ropes but the referee caught him. AJ hit a phenomenal forearm for the win.
AJ Styles and Austin Theory always deliver together and this was no exception. AJ Styles hit the peak in selling moves when working with new guys. He put over them better than anybody else. Austin theory is a very good future prospect for WWE. He is getting this slow build towards something bigger. Let’s hope WWE did not halt his momentum.
Mysterios vs Street Profits WWE Raw Tag Match
The father-son duo finds Street Profits as challengers this week on Raw. Dominik Mysterio controlled the match from start by hitting hurricanrana and arm drag. Dawkins replied with a back elbow to take down Dominik. Montez Ford hit a huge dive from the top rope onto his opponents. Dominik tagged Rey to the match. Mysterio hit him with head scissors followed by a seated senton. Montez sent him into the air so that his body hit the mat. Rey went for 619 but Ford countered the move. Rey Mysterio still got the pin with a roll-up.
Both these teams are high flying ones. We have seen them before delivering better than this. But for a TV match, this was very good. If Ford and Dawkins are not going for the championships then this is a good feud for them if WWE properly builds it. Dominik always has a good showing in the ring but he has to improve his mic skills to get further respect in WWE circles.
Birthday Segment of MIZ and Maryse WWE Raw
The feud between Miz and Maryse vs Edge and Beth Phoenix is going to be the main theme of this segment. Miz surprised her wife with a portrait of them as princesses and prince. She got another gift in a box which she wanted to open. But her husband said it is not for her. It was revealed that the box contained a brick. Edge and Beth came and took the security team out to get to the ring. But the It couple ran from the ring.
This was not a good segment as especially does not deserve the main event time slot. WWE always did some weird things with Miz and Maryse. The only fun thing in the whole segment was Beth and Edge fighting off the security team. Hence, overall from an in-ring perspective, this Raw was good. This was all from our WWE Raw Results from the 24 January episode.
