It might be Christmas Eve next week, but the longest-running weekly episodic television program in history does not take weeks off.
WWE announced the following matches and segments for the Dec. 24 edition of Raw:
- Paul Heyman returns to celebrate the holidays.
- Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler.
- Elias vs. Bobby Lashley in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight.
- Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin.
- Ronda Rousey defends the Raw Women's Title against Natalya.
The triple threat bout between McIntyre, Ziggler and Balor was set up on Monday's edition of Raw as McIntyre interfered in the singles bout between Ziggler and Balor. His interference led to a no contest. McIntyre stood tall to end the segment, laying out both foes.
Elias defeated Lashley at WWE TLC, but it was Lashley who walked away with his head held high, putting Elias down after the bout. On Raw, Elias got the better of Lashley, nailing him with a guitar. Guitars and more will be legal in the Miracle on 34th Street Fight.
Baron Corbin had a rough night on Raw, officially being ousted as Raw General Manager after failing to defeat Kurt Angle. Corbin tried to take his frustrations out on Rollins, but his plan backfired and he was left lying backstage.
Natalya won a number one contender's gauntlet on Raw, earning her a title shot against Rousey next week.
