WWE RAW Results (1/6) - Oklahoma City, OK

WWE RAW Results (1/6) - Oklahoma City, OK
The first WWE RAW of 2020 opens up with a video looking back at last week's wedding of Lana and Bobby Lashley, which was crashed by mystery spouses, Rusev and the returning Liv Morgan.


- We're live from the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma as the pyro goes off in the arena. Vic Joseph welcomes us. He's with WWE Hall of Famer Jerry Lawler and they hype tonight's show.

- We go right to the ring and out comes WWE Champion Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman. They stop on the stage as the big pyro goes off. They head to the ring as Mike Rome does the introductions.

Paul introduces himself and his client. Paul says we will start off the decade by making history because that is what Brock Lesnar does. Paul says his client said to him who will challenge him for his WWE Title at the Royal Rumble. Paul asked who would be worthy to step into the ring with the greatest fighter in sports entertainment history. Brock's answer was there is not one single member of the Raw, Smackdown, or NXT roster who is man enough to step into the ring, let alone worthy enough to share the spotlight with Brock Lesnar.

Paul says you don't boo Brock Lesnar when Brock is going to do something unprecedented and for the first time ever. You said the Undertaker couldn't be defeated at Wrestlemania, but his client conquered the Undertaker's undfeated streak at Wrestlemania. No man or beast could be NCAA Division I Champion, UFC Champion, WWE Champion, and Universal Champion... I present Brock Lesnar. Now, a universe that Brock Lesnar has not yet conquered. Do you want to see Brock in a dream match at the Royal Rumble. Every single solitary challenger who wants Brock at the Rumble can have him at the Royal Rumble. Paul says his client is entered in the Royal Rumble match.

Brock is not just entering the Royal Rumble, his client is entering the Royal Rumble match first. If Roman Reigns is in the Rumble, it is Brock versus Roman. It is Brock versus Seth Rollins. Anyone on Raw, Smackdown, or NXT, you will be going face to face with Brock Lesnar. While Brock takes the ring first, he will be standing victorious in the ring last.

Paul says this is historic. Brock is the beast of brazen. He will conquer the Royal Rumble. He will win the Royal Rumble. That's not a prediction, that is a spoiler.

Paul and Brock walk past the announce table and Vic and Jerry are in a good mood about Brock.
