WWE Raw Results:

Big E vs. Kevin Owens- Time for the main event with stakes as high as they could be. If Kevin Owens wins tonight, he will be instilled in the WWE Championship match at WWE Day 1 making it a triple-threat.

Before the match could have started, Seth Rollins also came out and joined the commentary team to take a look at the proceedings from close.

As the bell rang, both men launched themselves on each other. There was a rage between the two men as they were going after each other. Big E took Owens outside the ring and bashed him face-first into the barricade, followed by a face-first on the announce table.

He then sent Owens inside the ring, but Owens snapped his left knee and started working on it for good. He was stomping on the left knee and dropped himself on Big E’s leg. The WWE Champion was feeling the heat and was trying desperately to get out of Kevin’s attacks.

Big E got some opening and sent Owens right near the announce table where Rollins walked near Owens and was rooting for Big E by chanting ‘Go Big E Go!’ This made Owens furious and he slapped Rollins on his face. Owens then moved into the ring and Rollins followed him but was stopped on the apron by the referee.

Big E sneaked a chance and launched his attacks on Owens. He sent Owens on the apron and splashed on him chest-first on the apron. Bog E then took Owens outside and removed the first stair from the set of steel stairs, but his plan backfired as Owens placed a DDT on the WWE Champ right on the exposed steel stair. We now move into commercials.

After the commercial, both men were in the ring and Owens had his arm locked all over the face of Big E. Owens then tried running through Big E, but the champ floored him with a vicious clothesline. After a while, we saw Kevin hoisting Big E on the top turnbuckle and slamming him on the mat with a superplex.

Kevin once again wrapped his hands around Big E’s face, but the WWE Champ got out of the lock and even things up with two over the head belly-t-belly followed by a side belly-to-belly slam. Big E was feeling the adrenaline rush and tried going for the running splash but Owens put his knees up on time and countered the move perfectly.

The two men were not willing to give up even after going for simultaneous moves but they were going back & forth with their offense. In the closing moments of the match, Owens went outside to snap Seth Rollins who was consistently talking trash about him. Owens attacked Rollins for good and then turned his focus on Big E inside the ring. Owens tried going for a stunner, but Big E countered it, he then hit a superkick on the WWE Champ, and the champ returned with a vicious clothesline to floor Owens.

Once Owens was floored, Seth entered the scene and attacked Owens viciously forcing the referee to call the bell. The match got disqualified as Rollins Curb Stomped Big E too. Owens got the win via DQ leaving Rollins irate in the ring.

Backstage- Big E was asked if he has added pressure going into his match against Kevin Owens tonight. He replied with a straight ‘No.’ He further added, that maybe there could be a threat to his championship title in a triple-threat match at WWE Day 1, but he plans to kick off 2022 with a bang and for that, he will ensure that Kevin Owens isn’t winning tonight so that he could face Seth Rollins one-on-one man-to-man at WWE Day 1.

Seeing Rhea in the ring, Carmella rushed to her corner and tagged Queen Zelina, who then tagged in Becky followed by Doudrop, and then Tamina. All of a sudden, Rhea found herself in the middle of the five ladies all alone.

Rhea tried to fight but the number’s game got the better of her. Finally, all the ladies went to their corner and Rhea & Tamina were the only ones remaining and fighting each other. Tamina floored Rhea with a running takedown, but Rhea returned the favor by a vicious clothesline. Team Liv followed the suit and simultaneous tags saw Tamina surrounded by all the members of Team Liv.

The Miz came out with his wife Maryse and the two walked into the ring. The Miz then started off blaming Edge that every time he comes, whether he gets injured or takes time off, he always gets the big return, the media release, and the pyrotechnics, but he doesn’t get all this.

Edge and The Miz got involved in a dirty war of words and both had their ups and downs on the mic. Edge particularly talked about the small window he has fought really hard to get back. He said that he knows he doesn’t have much time left in his pro-wrestling career, but whatever time he has got, he has fought for it and earned it.

Before going to his corner, Ziggler and Roode worked together for a combined move and hit a neck breaker on Riddle. Riddle was suffering the pain but finally got some separation and managed to tag in Randy Orton.

As soon as Randy entered the scene he was all over the Dirty Dawgs. He first hit a sucker punch to Roode to send him outside the ring and followed it up by a power slam on Dolph Ziggler. Randy was going for his vicious middle-rope DDT on Ziggler, but Roode pulled Ziggler down. Randy followed him but only to get rocked with a vicious superkick from Ziggler.

Riddle then took out Roode with a middle rope DDT (Randy’s signature move), Randy was impressed with Riddle hitting his signature move and asked for a tag from Riddle. Riddle tagged him and the two men loaded themselves for an RKO but missed out on hitting the move together.

Liv first started off by saying that, “You’re the reason why your friend is gone just like the reason why your big, fat greedy contract is the reason why MY friends are gone. How does it feel knowing you become everything you despised?”

Liv told Becky that she wants to show her footage from Survivor Series when she was crying after her match. The two ladies then exchanged words, Liv signed the contract, and then Becky presented her an opportunity for a 5-on-5 tag-team match tonight. Sonya Deville revealed the two teams led by Liv Morgan and Becky Lynch. Team Liv vs. Team Becky later tonight.



Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor: Balor walked slowly on the ramp but as he was approaching the ring, he rushed into the ring and attacked Seth Rollins for good.
