WWE Raw Legends Night is scheduled to take place on January 4, 2020, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT live on the USA Network.
On this week’s special episode of WWE Raw Legends Night, there are is one scheduled segment between Randy Orton and Alexa Bliss and there is one scheduled match: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Keith Lee for the WWE Championship. Orton allegedly set Bliss on fire and Lee defeated Sheamus to earn his very first championship opportunity on the main roster.
Also, there is a list of legends expected to show up: Alicia Fox, Beth Phoenix, Big Show, Booker T, The Boogeyman, Carlito, Candice Michelle, Eve Torres, Hillbilly Jim, Hulk Hogan, Irwin R. Shyster (IRS), Ivory, Jacqueline, Jeff Jarrett, Jimmy Hart, Kurt Angle, Mark Henry, Melina, Michael Hayes, Mickie James, Ric Flair, Sgt. Slaughter, Tatanka, Teddy Long, and Torrie Wilson.
The WWE has already kickstarted its road to WrestleMania as it builds towards the Royal Rumble. It has already announced that Bobby Lashley and Nia Jax from WWE Raw will partake in the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumbles respectively. However, there are no title matches scheduled from the red brand at WWE Royal Rumble 2021.
Some title matches that could be added are: (1) Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Sheamus for the WWE Championship, (2) Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Riddle for the United States Championship, (3) Asuka and Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax for the Women’s Tag Team Championships, and (4) Hurt Business (c) vs. The New Day for the Raw Tag Team Championships.
Since there are no matches from the red brand scheduled for the Rumble, expect WWE to book some matches for the Rumble on this episode. There won’t be too many because the two Royal Rumbles already take a huge chunk of time from the show itself. With that being said, it’s now time to preview the matches and segments that will occur on this week’s episode of WWE Raw.
5.) Hardy Bros & The New Day vs. Hurt Business [8-Man Tag Match]
On last week’s WWE Raw, Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander, Shelton Benjamin, and MPV of the Hurt Business defeated Riddle, Jeff Hardy and The New Day in an eight-man tag team match. Now that Riddle has signed a contract extension, he will conveniently bounce back with some positive momentum. Hardy Bros and The New Day will defeat the entire Hurt Business in a rematch to earn their respective title matches.
While The New Day will get a tag title rematch against Alexander and Benjamin, Riddle will pin Lashley with assistance from Hardy to earn a United States Championship opportunity. However, Hardy won’t be left out because he and Riddle will challenge for the tag titles down the line once Lashley retains against Riddle and Alexander and Benjamin retain against New Day at the Rumble. Since it’s legends night, the match results will heavily favor the babyfaces, so this is a no-brainer.
Prediction: Hardy Bros & The New Day
