WWE Raw Results:
– Seth Rollins, along with AOP and Buddy Murphy, opened the show to brag about winning last week’s Fist Fight Match and eliminating The Big Show. They were interrupted by Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens. Rollins agreed to fight them, but they weren’t alone: The Viking Raiders showed up as backup, and the team of Joe, Owens, and The Vikings beat up the heels.
– After a commercial break, Rollins announced that he and Buddy Murphy would challenge The Viking Raiders for the Raw Tag Team Championship later in the night.
1. Ladder Match for the United States Championship: Andrade (c) defeated Rey Mysterio. Zelina Vega sat on top of the ladder to prevent Mysterio from winning, which allowed Andrade to hit a Hammerlock DDT through a ladder bridge. With Mysterio incapacitated, Andrade was able to climb the ladder and retrieve the championship to win the match. After the match, Andrade tried to Hammerlock DDT Mysterio onto the exposed concrete floor, but Humberto Carrillo returned to make the save.

2. Aleister Black defeated a jobber when the jobber started the match by running directly into Black Mass.
– Brock Lesnar made another appearance, with Paul Heyman delivering another speech about how Brock’s going to dominate and win the Royal Rumble. They were interrupted by Ricochet, so Lesnar kicked him in the balls.
