MONDAY NIGHT RAW

Sound off in the comments and Join our Live Viewing Party!

Tonight, it's the go-home episode before The Royal Rumble!

Who else will enter the Rumble?

Will Brock get his hands on Goldberg?

Will Braun Strowman eat a guy?

LET'S FIND OUT!

Roman Reigns starts off the show ... again.
Everyone boos ... again.

Good to see they're shaking it up this week before the Rumble.

The shark cage is in the ring.

Roman Reigns talks about how Jericho is going to be in the cage on Sunday, and that means he's going to beat Kevin Owens for the Universal Title.

Poor Roman Reigns. I just wish he had more confidence in himself.

Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho come out and talk shit to Roman about how KO put him through the announce table last week.

Roman Reigns repeats that he's going to beat Kevin Owens on Sunday.

Jericho says he's a stupid idiot and it's really funny how he beat Roman two weeks ago for his title. And he could come down there right now and teach him a lesson.

Roman is like, "does that mean I get a rematch?" Jericho doesn't seem to want one, but KO accepts the challenge for him, saying that he's going to put Roman in the shark cage before the end of the night.

Roman says I'm going to win the US Championship tonight, and then I'm going to win the Universal Championship on Sunday, because "I'm THE guy."

See what I mean? He has no self confidence. Sad!

CESARO vs LUKE GALLOWS

After last weeks debacle, they announce a tag team title match for the Royal Rumble.
With two referees.

Yeah. That oughta clear things up.

Cesaro starts out fast, hitting a springboard uppercut.

But of course, because it's wrestling, Luke Gallows hits a big kick and takes control as we go to 

COMMERCIAL

During the break, Karl Anderson got involved, clotheslining Cesaro on the outside behind the ref's back, so Sheamus literally chased him away.

Sheamus is still out there, though.

Sigh. Just let them go back to Japan.

Cesaro fights back with a deadlift vertical suplex and takes control. Luke Gallows shoves Sheamus on the outside, but the ref sees it and tells Sheamus not to retaliate.

The ref turns his back and Sheamus clotheslines Gallows. Cesaro comes out and gets Gallows, puts him in the ring and puts him in the sharpshooter.

Anderson runs back out and kicks Sheamus in the back of his head, he falls facefirst into the apron.

The ref is distracted, Gallows gets out of the Sharpshooter, hits a flapjack on Cesaro for the 1-2-3.

WINNER: Luke Gallows

Backstage Mick Foley is talking to Stephanie on Speaker Phone

Sami walks in, asks to be in the Royal Rumble. Mick is like "sure!" and Steph is like, "not so fast, young man." That's not how this works, she says. He has to beat Seth Rollins to get into the Rumble. (which is also not how it works)

Also, Steph has some kind of punishment for Seth Rollins set up. She tells Mick to take her off speaker, so we don't get to hear what it is.
