Drew McIntyre(c) vs Keith Lee – WWE Championship Match
Keith Lee won the #1 contender’s match last week to set up a clash with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. He had to come better against a powerhouse in Sheamus, who also happens to be McIntyre’s best mate, to get the opportunity. But the relationship between McIntyre and Sheamus is also looking shaky right now.
In their preview, WWE wrote, ” McIntyre has successfully kept AJ Styles and The Miz at bay in recent weeks, but Lee’s jaw-dropping mix of strength and technical prowess presents a new challenge for the new year.”
Will the WWE Champion be able to retain his title against a wrestler of Lee’s caliber? Is Sheamus gonna affect the result? Tune in to find out.
Randy Orton & Alexa Bliss
Last week’s RAW cut to black as Orton was standing with a lit matchstick in his hands and ready to douse Alexa Bliss on fire. WWE has not released any material after that to suggest whether Orton did end up putting Bliss on Fire. In either case, it will interesting to see what WWE is planning next for the storyline that has been one of the most anticipated things every week on RAW.
