WWE RAW 12.31.18: What You Need To Know

1. Drew McIntyre defeated Dolph Ziggler In A Steel Cage Match

The match was nothing special but it left me wondering what the hell the WWE plans on doing with Dolph Ziggler in 2019. He was pretty much left for dead after his match with McIntyre. What use does he have in the WWE? If I ran the company I would have no issue letting him go. And I wouldn’t even care if he left for All Elite Wrestling. McIntyre officially announced he would be in the Royal Rumble. I still don’t think he wins it, but I bet he puts on the best performance of the night. As for Dolph? I’d be surprised if he was even in it.

2. Dean Ambrose defeated Apollo Crews to retain the Intercontinental Title

Your typical one night push for Apollo. He won a battle royal to face Ambrose and Ambrose retained. I like Apollo, but he is another guy that you think might be better off hitting the Indy scene in 2019 to restart his career. This one is on the WWE for ruining him.

3. Ronda Rousey and Natalya beat Nia Jax and Tamina

Nothing like the women’s match from last week. At some they have to pull the trigger on Natty turning right?

4. Speaking of Ronda Rousey, she will be on Alexa Bliss new talk segment, “A Moment of Bliss”, next week

I like Alexa, but any time they give her a segment like this it always ends poorly. Again, I blame the writing more than I do Alexa here. With the right material she is really good. But the WWE always finds ways to botch that kind of stuff.

Until Next Time,
