WWE RAW Results (1/17) Tulsa, OK – We are live from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring to start the show. We see what happened last week during the number one contender match to determine Becky’s opponent at the Royal Rumble.
Becky says we are less than two weeks away from the Royal Rumble and the Raw women’s division has never been hotter and that is because of me. It is so hot in fact that we have stars from generations past coming back. We have Lita, Mickie James, the Bellas. All hoping that they can win the Royal Rumble to face me at Wrestlemania. I make stars out of people. Look no further than Doudrop. I have given her a taste of the big time at one of the biggest shows of the year.
You weren’t clamoring for her to have a title match. I gave her a title match. That is what I do. I make people better and then I beat them. I will admit that I admire her tenacity. She came from the rolling hills of Scotland and she made a name for herself. No, someone made a name for her. A Doudrop will never be a champion as long as she runs things.
Doudrop’s music plays and she makes her way to the ring.
Doudrop tells Becky that she didn’t give her anything. Doudrop says she got this match. If it was your plan to face me instead of Bianca, you made a big mistake. She tells Becky to stay out of her way tonight.
Becky says she gave Doudrop her win last week and she will do the same this week.
Bianca Belair makes her way to the ring.
Bianca says you cannot spell greatest without EST. Bianca says she is the EST of WWE. Bianca says Doudrop is facing Becky because Ms. Big Time was so scared of me that she had to interfere. You are just buying time. I am officially entering the Royal Rumble match. It is going to be every woman for themselves. If I have to eliminate every woman, I will. Then I will main event Wrestlemania . . . AGAIN. I will choose whichever champion I want and it might be one of you two.
Not to feel left out, Liv Morgan makes her way to the ring.
Liv says that she is also in the Royal Rumble Match. In two weeks, I will be the one winning it. For that to happen, that means you will be one of the 29 women I am outlasting on my way to Wrestlemania.
Doudrop tells them that they are boring and she wants the referee to start the match.
The referee has to separate all four women.
