LIVE RAW COVERAGE 1-23: Go Home Show For The Royal Rumble; Will Brock And Goldberg Come To Blows?

Pre-Taped Interview with Charlotte.

She seems to think she's going to win on Sunday.

And that Bayley isn't in her league.

Shocker.

NIA JAX vs JOBBER LADY

She throws her into the corner and BANZAI DROPS her, then drags her into the middle of the ring.

It took maybe 20 seconds.

WINNER: Nia Jax

She cuts a promo on Sasha Banks, saying that she ended her career last week.

Sasha's music hits, and she comes out with a crutch.

She hits Nia with the crutch a lot, then ducks her charge, she topples through the middle ropes.

Sasha hits the flying Double Knees off the apron, then backs up the ramp, Nia up to a knee and staring her down.

Ladies and gentlemen your one in-ring women's segment of the night.

RICH SWANN vs NOAM DAR

Ugh. The Alicia Fox saga continues.

Swann gets the upper hand on Dar almost immediately, but as he's running for a tope, he has to stop because Noam is hiding behind Foxy.

Then a couple minutes later, he's distracted and ends up getting kicked in the head.

COMMERCIAL

After the break, Swann is coming back and hits his Swann Song kick for the 1-2-3 and a fairly quick victory.

WINNER: Rich Swann

After the match, Swann calls out Neville and Neville obliges, walking straight down to the ring, steps halfway through the ropes, then gets back down off the apron.

Swann nails him with a Suicide Dive, rolls him into the ring, and Neville quickly exits.

Swann is screaming for Neville, but Neville is a heel and therefore, he has to be presented as a coward.

Backstage Interview with Cedric Alexander

He says he's happy to put the whole Noam Dar and Alicia Fox thing behind him.

On cue, here's Alicia Fox and Noam Dar.

She's nuts, and Noam's a creep.

WHY IS THIS STILL HAPPENING?

___________________________________________

GOLDBERG SEGMENT TO BE JOINED BY EVERYONE ELSE IN THE RUMBLE PROBABLY

He takes forever to get to the ring, and he's bleeding, because he likes to headbutt metal things.

His promo is meaningless, not because he can't remember the name of the new belt, but because no one can look at anything else besides the blood running out of the hold in his scalp.

Heyman comes out onto the stage and says that Brock Lesnar could meet Goldberg in the ring at the Royal Rumble.

Lesnar comes out and joins Heyman on the stage. Heyman talks some more, Goldberg calls Brock down to the ring and Brock walks down, circles the ring.

He gets up on the apron, steps through the ropes.

UNDERTAKER'S DONG. LIGHTS GO OUT.

BACK UP. TAKER IS IN THE RING.

LOOKS AT BOTH OF THEM.

THEY GO OFF THE AIR...

...

wait, what?
