WWE RAW episode of January 9, 2023, will continue the build-up for Royal Rumble 2023, and towards a blockbuster WrestleMania season.
Alexa Bliss is advertised to explain her actions from last week. WWE is also teasing the next storyline/feud for Unites States Champion Austin Theory. Check below for the complete preview and match card for WWE RAW January 9, 2023 episode.
Alexa Bliss Explains Outburst
Alexa Bliss was battling WWE RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair last week on RAW when she saw a man in an Uncle Howdy mask. This was followed by Firefly Fun House logo flashing on the big screen. Bliss lost control of herself at this point and attacked the referee and dropped Bianca Belair with two DDTs on the steel steps.
WWE has announced that Bliss will explain his outburst on Bianca. Will Alexa turn to Bray Wyatt Universe totally? Will Uncle Howdy appear on RAW also? How will Bianca respond to this drama?
What’s Next for Austin Theory?
Austin Theory survived against Seth Rollins last week to retain WWE United States Championship in a match which involved a referee bump and a low blow to the finish. Rollins proved to be very tough for Theory, but he managed to beat Rollins somehow. With a win over as big star as Rollins, Theory is surely sky-high. Which rivalry awaits him? And, will Seth Rollins leave him alone just like that?
What Else to Expect?
Dexter Lumis defeated Chad Gable last week, but there was no progression on his storyline with The Miz or Bronson Reed. Will we see something on that front on January 9 episode of RAW?
The Bloodline has opened both RAW and SmackDown last week with disruptions. Will the trend continue this week on RAW also?
Becky Lynch was able to get the win over Damage CTRL last week when she teamed up with Mia Yim. Will she get her wish to face Bayley in a rematch?
