Lesnar’s Big Announcement
The show started with the recap of Lana & Lashley’s incomplete wedding last week. We see all the interruptions and Liv Morgan and Rusev destroying the wedding. RAW’s intro song takes over before we go live to the arena. WWE champion Brock Lesnar comes out to the ring with Paul Heyman.
Paul Heyman cuts the promo on Lesnar’s behalf. He says there is no one on RAW that is worthy of facing Brock Lesnar. Heyman goes on to remind us of Lesnar’s accomplishments over the years, from NCAA to defeating the Undertaker at WrestleMania. Heyman then announces that Lesnar is going to set the history and will enter the Royal Rumble. He announces that Lesnar will enter at #1 in the Rumble. Whether Lesnar’s title will be on the line or not, it is not made clear. They leave after the announcement.
After the commentators’ comments on the big announcement, we cut backstage to Rey Mysterio who is saying something in his native language. He gets to Sarah Schrieber for the interview. He thanks his son Dominick for convincing him to stay and compete with the best. He says Andrade does not deserve to represent Latinos and he will capture the title back today.
Andrade vs Rey Mysterio- WWE United States Championship Match
Rey starts strong with a headscissor takedown that sends Andrade out of the ring followed by another under the ropes to the floor. He rolls Andrade back in for a quick one count. Both men tumble over the top rope before Rey sends Andrade’s face into the steel steps with a victory roll on the floor. The champ takes control with a dropkick as we head to a break.
We return to see Mysterio starting to make a comeback after Andrade controlled the action during the break. Rey hits a kick from the apron and a springboard senton. He spikes El Idolo with a DDT for a near fall. Andrade hangs Rey from the top rope for a double stomp but Mysterio avoids it and Andrade hits the floor. He counters a sunset flip from Rey and hits a Meteora.
Rey almost gets the win with an inside cradle. Andrade avoids the 619 and nails him with a back elbow for a two count. Rey ends up getting the pin but Zelina Vega put Andrade’s foot on the bottom rope before the ref made the count. The referee sees Andrade’s foot after the bell and calls for the match to start again.
