Your 2017 Royal Rumble winner, Hall of Fame inductee, Kurt Angle!
WWE Monday Night RAW - The Preview
Monday 30th January 2017
Hot off the heels of the most star-studded Royal Rumble in WWE history, the WWE’s flagship show rolls into town as the road to Wrestlemania goes up a gear. In a moment that shocked the WWE universe, recent inductee of the 2017 Hall of Fame, Kurt Angle made history and won the prestigious Royal Rumble match, giving him an opportunity at either the WWE Universal or WWE Championship at Wrestlemania. Nobody knows what’s on the Olympic gold medallists mind, but does he have Roman Reigns in his sights?
‘The’ man and ‘The’ NEW WWE Universal Champion
Dual champion Roman Reigns will be eager to find out, fresh off his WWE Universal Championship victory over Kevin Owens last night. Now a dual champion, ‘The’ man will be out to celebrate on Monday Night RAW, but will Kurt Angle be making an appearance? How will Kevin Owens react to losing ‘his’ belt, and does ‘best friend’ Chris Jericho have anything on his mind?
Is the Pressure Mounting?
In a WWE.com exclusive, RAW General Manager Mick Foley has announced a blockbuster main event, in the form of a Royal Rumble re-match. Kevin Owens will invoke his re-match clause and tackle the ‘Big Dog’ in RAW’s main event, with the WWE Universal Championship on the line. Fortunately for Jericho, there will be no shark cage in sight, but does Foley have other plans for Owens’ best friend? One has to wonder, with his boss and RAW Commissioner, Stephanie McMahon breathing down his neck.
Is it Time to Play the Game?
It was very nearly a Rumble victory for RAW’s Seth Rollins last night. Rollins, looking to get back on top of the mountain was one of the final two competitors. It all looked to be going to plan for the man who rebuilt himself to reclaim upon his return, however, an appearance from WWE Executive Triple H put a damper on his plans, and distracted him long enough for Kurt Angle to eliminate him.
It’s no secret that Seth Rollins and The Game, Triple H aren’t on the same page. Ever since Hunter cost Rollins the WWE Universal Championship and gifted it to Kevin Owens, Rollins has had one thing on his mind. Will the pair clash tonight on Monday Night RAW, will Rollins finally get his hands on his former mentor, turned bitter rival?
