– The dark main event after this week’s WWE 205 Live in Greensboro, NC at the Greensboro Coliseum saw WWE Universal Champion “The Fiend” retain his title over Daniel Bryan.
As noted, this week’s SmackDown on FOX saw Kane return to make a special appearance, which was just a ruse to lure The Fiend out to the ring. Wyatt came from a hole in the ring but ended up getting attacked by Bryan after facing off with Kane. Bryan beat on Wyatt as he crawled back into the hole, coming up with a handful of The Fiend’s hair.
Bryan later issued a backstage challenge for a Strap Match stipulation to be added to their title match at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view on January 26, and the match change was confirmed by the announcers.
– Below is a video promo for Monday’s WWE RAW episode on the USA Network, which will be the go-home show for the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
The promo hypes up Liv Morgan and Rusev vs. Lana and Bobby Lashley, plus the Ladder Match between Rey Mysterio and WWE United States Champion Andrade. WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman have also been announced for Monday’s RAW from the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas.
