The December 2 2019 edition of WWE Raw, out of the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, just wrapped up. We’ve got the WWE Raw results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #1384 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Seth Rollins Issues an Apology
After a brief shot of Akam and Rezar arriving to the arena, Seth Rollins was shown in the ring. He said that he had thought long and hard about what he said last week (that all of his fellow Raw roster members sucked), and he realized he was in the wrong. He apologized to everyone, but especially Kevin Owens, with whom he was especially harsh in his criticisms.
Rollins asked Kevin to come to the ring to speak with him in person, and Kevin obliged, joining The Kingslayer.
Kevin Owens was extremely hesitant to accept Rollins’ apology; in fact, Owens accused him of deceit, saying that Rollins was behind Akam and Rezar’s attack on him last week. Rollins started to deny it, but just then, the Authors of Pain appeared on the stage.
Akam and Rezar challenged Owens and Rollins to a tag match, which Rollins accepted, but Owens declined. He said that he knew nothing good would come of it for him, and at that point, Rollins became frustrated, leaving Owens alone in the ring.
Akam and Rezar allowed Rollins to walk between them unscathed while Owens prepared for a fight, but they laughed and disappeared backstage.
Kevin Owens vs. Bobby Lashley
Back from commercial, Kevin Owens was still in the ring alone. He said that Akam and Rezar may not have wanted a fight, but he did – and welcomed someone to come out to challenge him.
Instead of a viable opponent, Owens got Lana. Kevin was visibly disgusted by her presence, but Lana didn’t seem to care. She launched into a (rather convoluted) speech about her relationship with Bobby Lashley while KO lobbed insults at her from the ring, begging her to shut up.
After announcing that she had filed yet another restraining order against Rusev and had a police escort just in case, Bobby Lashley came to the ring, answering the challenge previously issued by Kevin, and a match began.
Despite a well-placed big boot from Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley got the early advantage, sending KO out of the ring with a spinebuster. Kevin Owens made a comeback with a frog splash off the apron, connecting with a cannonball for a near fall after a commercial break.
Bobby Lashley leveled Owens with a clothesline, coming close to victory with a Full Nelson shortly after. Kevin Owens hit his Popup Powerbomb and may have taken the win, but Akam and Rezar attacked him from behind, causing a disqualification.
Winner: Kevin Owens (via disqualification)
Lana and Bobby Are Brought to Justice
In an in-ring interview, Bobby Lashley assured everyone that he had nothing to do with AOP’s attack on Kevin Owens. It was merely a happy coincidence. While he was speaking, however, Rusev jumped the barricade, flattening Bobby with his Machka Kick.
Rusev made a break for it before anyone could respond, but it didn’t matter in the end, because when Bobby Lashley got in the officers’ faces regarding their failure to protect him and his lady, they arrested him, claiming that “they do things differently in Tennessee.”
Lana slapped one of the cops in the face when they refused to let her boyfriend go, so they arrested her as well.
Back from commercial, the cops load Bobby and Lana into the back of their car and off they went. The camera panned around to show R-Truth standing with The Street Profits, looking perplexed as they watched them go.
Drew McIntyre vs. Akira Tozawa
Big Drew McIntyre made it abundantly clear that he, in no way, took 205 Liver Akira Tozawa seriously, going as far as to get down on his knees and mock Akira after sending him crashing to the mat in the opening moments of the match.
Akira started to leave the ring, but was only causing a distraction, and sprung backward, hitting Drew with a dropkick before diving onto him at ringside.
Outside of the ring, Drew McIntyre flung Akira in a reverse Alabama slam before throwing him back in the ring for a chinlock. Akira did his best to get back into the match, but a massive Claymore Kick was too much for him to overcome in the end, and Drew McIntyre picked up the win.
Winner: Drew McIntyre
The Psychopath Summons The Viper
Akira Tozawa left the ring, but Drew McIntyre stayed behind, ready for another challenge. After reminding the audience of Orton’s eye poke during their Fatal 4-Way last week, McIntyre called out Randy Orton.
Some verbal jabs brought Orton to the ring, who said that he does whatever he wants because he’s earned the right to do so. He continued by saying that he had no real problem with Drew, but if Drew wanted a fight, he wasn’t going to say no.
Before the argument could escalate any further, AJ Styles and his OC teammates came to the stage. Styles challenged Orton to match, to which McIntyre objected, as he had claimed Orton first.
But it was too late, Gallows and Anderson stomped out Orton until Ricochet ran down to save him, quickly followed by Humberto Carrillo and Rey Mysterio.
After the quartet ran The OC off, Randy Orton thanked his saviors but made sure to add that he didn’t need their help.

Aleister Black vs. Tony Nese
Familiar with the other’s strategies, Black and Nese were locked in a stalemate to start the match. After completing his signature taunt, Aleister Black unleashed a flurry of strikes on Nese, Buddy Murphy watching closely on a monitor backstage.
Tony Nese tried to take control with a strike to Black’s throat but was unsuccessful. Aleister Black fired off a series of kicks that left Tony on his knees and in the perfect position for the Black Mass, which Aleister hit for the win.
Winner: Aleister Black
Andrade vs. Eric Young
Somewhat surprisingly, Eric Young held his own against Andrade, refusing to be defeated in a matter of seconds and even knocking Andrade down with a strike and a flying elbow.
After a double knee strike in the corner followed by his Hammerlock DDT, however, Andrade secured the win.
The 24/7 Title Changes Hands
R-Truth was shown trying to blend in with the crowd, evading a group of 24/7 Title pursuers, but he was caught by Kyle Busch, who took the championship with the help of Michael Waltrip as the referee.
Erick Rowan vs. No Way Jose
As No Way Jose and his conga line made their way down to the ring, one of the conga-ers made the mistake of peeking in the cage Rowan has been carrying with him for weeks now, and Erick did not take it well.
After laying out the offender, Rowan decimated Jose, screaming at him to never touch his things.
Backstage, Sarah Schreiber did her best to get Erick Rowan to reveal the contents of the burlap covered cage he’s been carrying, but Rowan simply snarled at the interviewer and walked away.
Winner: Erick Rowan
Charlotte Flair vs. The Kabuki Warriors
2-On-1 Handicap Match
This was a highly impressive handicap match, with Charlotte Flair giving an impressive performance despite being up against insurmountable odds. Asuka and Kairi set the tone of the match before it even began, attacking Charlotte with Kairi’s parasol, but Charlotte persevered.
After suffering a series of double-team attacks from the Kabuki Warriors, Charlotte got her revenge with a sliding dropkick on both of her opponents outside of the ring. Charlotte then focused her attention on Kairi, which left Asuka open to bring her down with strikes.
Fortunately for The Queen, Asuka accidentally shoved Kairi off the apron, allowing Charlotte to nail them both with a crossbody.
Back from commercial, Asuka and Kairi had regained control of the match, working together to wear Charlotte down. A big boot from Charlotte gave her some breathing room, and she attempted a moonsault onto Kairi and Asuka, but both ladies got their knees up.
Unable to bring the Warriors down with hard-hitting offense to this point, Charlotte opted for submission holds, but every time she caught one of her opponents in one, the other broke the hold.
All three women struggled on the top rope, Charlotte trying to suplex Asuka and Kairi to the mat, but they overpowered her, sending her flying face-first into the mat. Charlotte came back with a spear to both opponents, locking Asuka in a Figure Eight, but Kairi Sane made the save with a stunning Insane Elbow, taking the win for her team.
Winner: The Kabuki Warriors
The Viking Raiders vs. Thing 1 and Thing 2
Erik and Ivar defeated their opponents in quick fashion, rag dolling them inside the ring and out before using their Viking Experience finisher for the win.
Winner: The Viking Raiders
The OC vs. Rey Mysterio, Humberto Carrillo, and Ricochet
6-Man Tag Team Match
Mysterio, Carrillo, and Ricochet bonded backstage before the match, letting it be known that, while they do not have a great deal of experience as a team, the respect they had for each other would hopefully compensate.
Sadly, all of the respect in the world wouldn’t have been enough to overcome The OC’s drive to win, which they demonstrated early in the match, using underhanded tactics against Humberto.
Rey Mysterio set AJ Styles up for a 619, only to be thrown into the barricade, and then the ring post, by Karl Anderson.
Back from commercial, The OC were still beating Rey Mysterio down, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson working together to keep Mysterio grounded. Rey Mysterio finally escaped, tagging Ricochet into the match, who came in hot, taking out everyone in sight and scoring a near fall with his standing shooting star press.
More mischevious maneuvers opened the door for a Styles Clash, but Ricochet turned it into a Recoil for another near fall. Chaos broke out, as neither team was able to take the other down, after which AJ Styles connected with a Pele kick to Ricochet. The One and Only hit Anderson with a moonsault to the floor, coming back for a hurricanrana to Styles off the top rope, but Styles managed to transition into a massive Styles Clash, taking the win for his team.
Winner: The OC
