WWE RAW Results - January 28, 2019
We are live from the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona, as Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring so he can assume his rightful means of celebration after the Royal Rumble and point to the sign.

Seth says he came to this ring last week and he said that thirty men would lay it all on the line in the Royal Rumble for immortality. Seth said he would outlast them because of heart, determination, passion, love. Tonight, Seth says he is standing in this ring and he can say that he is going to the main event of Wrestlemania.

Seth promised himself that if he won the Royal Rumble, he was not going to do it . . . but this is a once in a lifetime shot so he has to point at the sign. Seth says all he wanted to do was poit at the sign and main event Wrestlemania. Winning the Royal Rumble is not the end of the journey, it is the beginning of the journey. He has a choice to take. One path can take him to Smackdown where he can challenge someone who has been a friend of his for a long time, WWE Champion Daniel Bryan.

Seth's other path takes him to Suplex City, where he challenges Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. It will take him some time to make that decision.

Triple H's music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

The Royal Rumble is a match designed to test the limits of all athletes. Put the 30 best in the ring until there is one left. Last night, we found out who The One is. That one is Seth Rollins. Hunter reminds Seth that he has a question of who he will burn down at Wrestlemania. Much like Becky Lynch has the same decision. She will make her decision on Smackdown, but you need to make yours right here tonight. You know better than anybody how fast the machine moves. We need to know and you need to make the decision on the cross road tonight. You have until the end of the night. Daniel Bryan will be here. Brock Lesnar will be here. Hunter says he needs to know whose ass Seth will kick at Wrestlemania.

Seth says this will be one of the hardest decisions he had to make in his career but if it has to be done tonight... Dean Ambrose interrupts with his music and he makes his way to the ring.

Dean says this is so cute. This father/son shtick makes him sick. When we were riding around Florida for $500 he didn't care. Hunter tried to get rid of you but Dean says he believed in you. Hunter tried to stop us.

Hunter talks about Dean attacking his brother on the same night his other brother announced he had leukemia. Dean says this conversation does not concern you. Hunter says this all concerns him.

Dean calls Seth a suck up and a kiss ass. Go ahead and headline Wrestlemania. Dean says he hopes Seth wins whatever title match he chooses, but the one person Seth cannot beat without help is him. Dean suggests that Chuckles make this match if he has stroke.

Triple H goes to leave but Ambrose stops him, asking if he has to go get permission from his father-in-law first. Triple H stops as a "yes he does!" chant starts up. Triple H calls for a referee and we've got the match. We go to commercial.
