WWE Monday Night RAW Preview: January 15th, 2018
The Royal Rumble is right around the corner.
The road to the Royal Rumble pay per view continues this week as WWE Raw rolls through San Antonio, which ironically enough, was the location of last year’s Rumble event.
With title matches that need to be made and Rumble participants still to be announced, the excitement is growing for the final Raw before the show’s 25th anniversary spectacular next week.
While last week’s effort may not have blown anyone out of the water, it was still an arguably better show than SmackDown Live – and given that the Mixed Match Challenge is right around the corner, that can only be a good thing.
With two massive events coming up you could argue that this is something of a go-home show and that alone should be enough to get people tuning in. So with all of that being said, here is our five-point preview of tonight’s edition of Monday Night Raw.
#1 Strowman’s Dominance
Last week saw Braun Strowman dismantle his Royal Rumble opponents Brock Lesnar and Kane, and now, revenge is surely just around the corner. The Monster Among Men may have been the one standing tall at the end of Raw seven nights ago, but you just know that Kane and Lesnar aren’t going to take it lying down.
The build to this triple threat showdown has actually been quite solid all things considered, but it still needs that final push heading into Philadelphia. With next week’s 25th-anniversary show being extremely legend-heavy, it makes sense that the final hype for the Universal title match would take place tonight.
