WWE RAW Results - December 10, 2018

WWE RAW Results - December 10, 2018
We are live from the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego, California, where Seth Rollins is in the ring to star tonight's show!

Seth says burn it down will be his rallying cry when he puts his title on the line against Dean Ambrose. More importantly, that is going to be the theme for tonight in San Diego. Seth says he is not calling out Dean but he is spitting out some truth. Seth says that Baron Corbin has been talking about being on the right side of history. Seth wants Baron Corbin to come out and get a dose of reality.

Baron Corbin makes his way to the ring and we are reminded about Baron's match on Sunday against Braun Strowman. Baron says if Seth wants to have a conversation, they can do it in private. The door to his office is always open to a superstar of his caliber.

Seth says that no one wants to hear what Baron is saying and he tells Baron to shut up. Seth says he has been wrapped up with Dean Ambrose and he hasn't told Baron about the job he is doing. Seth says the title does not matter, but the bottom line is that under his 'leadership', Raw has sucked. Seth says that Baron is ruining people's careers. What you have been doing is not okay and it is not right.

Baron says that he is allowing Seth to vent and he tells Seth to watch how he speaks to him.

Seth asks what will Baron do? Fire him? Seth says the locker room has so much talent and you have no idea what to do. You have the Revival who should be wrestling for the tag titles, but they are in Lucha House Rules matches. If you fire everyone, will it be you, Lashley, and Drew in the ring? That will help ratings. How about more urination? Every decision you have made masks your insecurities. Has Braun hurt your feelings so much that you had to hand the title back to Brock Lesnar, a man who shows up only when he wants to show up. Brock never wants to show up. Where is your Universal Champion. Brock is not here because he does not want to be here. Do you know the last time Brock has wrestled on Raw? It was 2002.

This Baron Corbin experiment has been an abject failure. The morale backstage, the fan support, and the ratings are at an all time low, and it is all because of you.

Baron says he appreciates Seth's feedback and he tells Seth to write it down next time so he can file it under I don't care what you think. Raw is his show and if you don't like it, that is too bad. Baron says he will be in charge for a long time. If you think it is bad now, it will get a lot worse for you.

Seth says he does not think it can get any worse.

Baron tells Seth that Dean will beat him on Sunday and then Baron will beat Braun by forfeit. Baron says he always wanted to have a TLC match, but Braun only has one arm. Baron says he will be introduced as the new permanent General Manager of Raw. From that next day until the day you quit, I will put you through hell.

Seth says why wait until next week, let's start putting him through hell tonight. Seth challenges Baron to a match. Seth says a one on one match is not good enough for the people. Since you wanted to have one, and the tools of the trade are here. Why not have a TLC match tonight.

Baron asks Seth if he knows what Baron will do to him if he had a table, ladder, or chair in his hands. Seth says it will just be a tune up for Sunday with Ambrose. Baron says if you want to be a hero for the locker room, it will cost you. Baron says he will show what happens when you disrespect the current and future GM of Raw. Baron says his answer is no.

Seth calls Baron a coward and that forces Baron to accept the match and Corbin says the Intercontinental Title will be on the line. Corbin leaves as his music hits.

- Still to come, Alexa Bliss hosts a press conference. Also, Chad Gable and Bobby Roode get a RAW Tag Team Title shot in a 2-on-3 Handicap Match against Drake Maverick and AOP. We go to commercial.

- Back from the break and Dasha Fuentes approaches Seth Rollins backstage. He admits it may not have been the smartest decision to get himself into a match with Baron Corbin 6 days away from TLC but he's just tired of it and has to take a stand for the others in the back, if he won't then he doesn't deserve to have the title.

Chad says they probably would have questioned your mental health if it would happen in a 3 on 2 match, but there is one word to describe this moment . . . GLORIOUS.

In the Arena:

Natalya says she usually comes out with a smile on her face, but there is something she needs to get off her chest about Ruby Riott. Natalya says she loves this business and WWE, but Ruby does not respect anyone in the business. You made this personal when you destroyed her dad's sunglasses and tried to destroy her legacy. You talk about how she has earned everything because of her name.

Natalya reminds Ruby of the Montreal Screwjob when her uncle punched the owner of the company in the face. Natalya says she had to overcome all of that to make it into the WWE. She says she is proud to be a Hart and to represent her family in the WWE. At TLC, she will teach Ruby about respect. She is going to dedicate her match who if it wasn't for him, she wouldn't be in the WWE today, someone she loves more than anyone else. She is dedicating this match to Jim Neidhart.

Natalya says she will take every tear and emotion and drive Ruby's ass through a table. There will not be a thing that you can do.

Ruby Riott makes her way to the ring with Sarah Logan, Liv Morgan, and a table.

Ruby says Nattie is crying again. Like we haven't seen this before. All you do is walk around the locker room feeling sorry for yourself. You want to talk to her about respect. You don't need respect, you need a good counselor. Ruby says no one has the guts to say this to your face, but you don't represent the Harts. You don't represent your family. You disgrace your family. Ruby says while she is not going to be invited to the Hart family Christmas, she got a gift to life Nattie's spirits. This is the gift that keeps on giving.

Ruby removes the cover and the table has a photo of her father on it.

Ruby says everyone knows how close you and your dad were, but on Sunday, when she puts Nattie through this table, you and your daddy will be closer than ever.

Drew says that when he talks, you will all listen. Drew says he is making Raw a better place for all of you. You might not like him, but you will respect him.

Nia says she has a statement to make before the questions are asked. This Sunday, she is going to become the Raw Women's Champion at the direct expense of Ronda Rousey. Getting cracked with those four ounce gloves have taken a toll on Ronda. If Ronda had half a brain, she would come to the ring and put the title at Nia's feet so she would not have to deal with the beating she is going to get at TLC. Nia says Ronda comes from a world where you have to talk trash. Nia does not have to talk trash because she is six feet tall and 300 pounds. Nia says she is the anti-Rousey. Nia says her hand is the secret. It is the fist that broke Becky Lynch's face and she did it with one punch.

When the bell rings on Sunday and when Ronda comes at her, she is going to punch Ronda in the face. She will not stop with one punch. She will do it over and over and over until Ronda taps out, just to stop her. Nia says she is not just the most imposing force in WWE history, she is a strategist. Ronda is a world class judo champion, she is a Strikeforce champion, she is a UFC champion, and she is the Raw Women's Champion. If Ronda goes for an arm bar, she will get her distance from Ronda and she will break Ronda's face and she will hold her title.
