The 12/03/18 edition of WWE Raw, out of the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, 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 #1332 of WWE Raw by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.

Ronda Rousey and Natalya vs. Nia Jax and Tamina


Before the match began, The Riott Squad appeared on the stage carrying a table. This distracted Ronda and Natalya long enough to allow Nia and Tamina to attack them. With Ronda Rousey out of the way thanks to Nia and Tamina, The Riott Squad turned their full attention toward Natalya, powerbombing her through the table they had brought along, then happily walking back up the ramp together.

After the beatdown, an enraged Ronda Rousey took Natalya to find medical assistance backstage.

Winner: N/A


Future Women’s Tag Team Champions


As last week’s interview went just slightly awry, Alexa Bliss brought Bayley and Sasha Banks to the ring to try the open forum again. Some of the questions were clearly meant to cause friction between the friends, but they appeared unfazed.

In fact, Bayley and Sasha claimed their 2019 goal to be becoming the first ever Women’s Tag Team Champions. Once again, Dana Brooke, Mickie James, and Alicia Fox ran down to attack Bayley and Banks but were stopped by Alexa Bliss.

Bliss said that if they were so determined to fight, they could do it in a match, and set one between Bayley/Sasha Banks and Mickie James/Alicia Fox to take place immediately.


Bayley and Sasha Banks vs. Mickie James and Alicia Fox


Alexa Bliss and Dana Brooke looked on from ringside as Mickie James and Alicia Fox held control over Bayley for the first few minutes. Sasha Banks got the hot tag and nearly tapped Alicia Fox out with the Banks Statement, but Mickie James broke it up. Shortly afterward, however, Bayley successfully pinned Mickie James for the victory.

Winner: Bayley and Sasha Banks


Ronda Wants Retribution


Ronda Rousey confronted Alexa Bliss backstage and demanded revenge against The Riott Squad, Nia Jax, and Tamina. Bliss said that she sent The Riott Squad home, but that Ronda could have another shot at a tag match against Nia and Tamina. Ronda agreed, but would not allow Alexa to choose the partner for her.


The Rise of Baron Corbin


A video package was shown depicting Baron Corbin’s “rise to power.” Although it showed actual events, it was very much satire, at least on some level.

After the video and a reminder that Baron will only become permanent GM if he defeats Braun Strowman in their upcoming tables, ladders, and chairs match at the TLC pay-per-view, the Future Permanent Raw GM was approached by Chad Gable and Bobby Roode. They wanted a rematch for the raw tag team championships, especially after the way they were treated by Drake Maverick. Corbin agreed to the rematch – on the condition that Bobby Roode defeat Drake Maverick in singles action.


Lucha House Party vs. Scott Dawson


The Revival came down the ramp for their match against Lucha House Party but said that they didn’t ask for a tag match, they wanted a singles match. Therefore, Scott Dawson would be taking one of them on by himself – or so he thought. Unfortunately for The Revival, the match was under Lucha House Rules, so Scott Dawson may have been in it alone, but all three LHP members were still allowed to compete.

Dawson held out in 3-on-1 action as long as he could, doing his best to keep Lince Dorado away from his team members and unable to tag in. The overwhelming odds were just too much for him in the end, however, and LHP took the victory.

Winner: Lucha House Party


Drew McIntyre Appreciation Day


Future Permanent Raw GM, Baron Corbin, came to the ring to air a video package highlighting the recent events of Drew McIntyre’s career (sans Dolph Ziggler – important detail). He then invited the Scottish Psychopath to join him. McIntyre was presented with his very own gold medal, as Kurt Angle has essentially been run off the show and obviously, Raw needs an in-house gold medalist at all times.

McIntyre accepted the medal with modesty and grace… just kidding. He talked about how great he was for a while, then moved on to the topic of destroying Finn Bálor at TLC. In the middle of his self-aggrandizing speech, Dolph Ziggler came out to confront him regarding his exclusion from the video, as well as the party. McIntyre then, to the best of his ability, destroyed Ziggler’s soul. He said that Ziggler was never part of his longterm plan, they were never friends, and he would never want to be associated with someone like Dolph anyway.

Dolph Ziggler laid McIntyre out with a Zigzag, but on his way backstage, Baron Corbin demanded they have a match to settle things (i.e., give McIntyre a chance to beat Ziggler down).


Dolph Ziggler vs. Drew McIntyre


As expected, Drew McIntyre ruthlessly laid into Dolph Ziggler, verbally assaulting him as he went. McIntyre couldn’t help himself and called Finn Bálor out while he pummeled his ex-friend. Bálor came down to watch the massacre, but the extra eyes on the match seemed to do more harm than good for McIntyre, as Ziggler slowly began to get in some offense.

With Ziggler in the ring and McIntyre on the floor, Bálor saw his opportunity and took it, nailing McIntyre with a dropkick to the face. This nearly caused a countout, but McIntyre managed to get back in the ring at the last second. The damage had been done, however, and Ziggler was able to score a win over McIntyre with the last ounce of energy he had left.

Backstage, Drew McIntyre had completely lost it, screaming at Charly Caruso about what he planned to do to both Finn Bálor and Dolph Ziggler.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler


The Concert is Cancelled Yet Again


Bobby Lashley and his energetic manager, Lio Rush, rudely interrupted Elias’ concert with flexing and poses. Elias was not too happy about the disturbance, and went after Lashley and Rush, chasing them both away. Finn Bálor was still hanging around in the arena and tossed Rush towards Elias, who smashed his guitar over Rush’s back.


There Can Only Be One


Baron Corbin issued an ultimatum to Heath Slater and Rhyno. He said there was only room for one of them on Raw; therefore, one should quit so the other could stay. When they both refused, Corbin set a match between them, the loser of which would be fired from Raw.


Bobby Roode vs. Drake Maverick


With his tag partner, Chad Gable, banned from ringside, Bobby Roode took on the manager of AOP, Drake Maverick. While Bobby Roode put the smackdown on Drake Maverick in the ring, AOP demolished Chad Gable backstage.

Baron Corbin appeared on the scene, and technically saved Gable, but only by revealing that AOP were allowed to assist their manager in the match against Roode. Bobby Roode worked quickly to defeat Maverick before Akam and Rezar could make it to the ring, but they were able to it up just in time.

AOP went to work on Bobby Roode, and even though he was far less than 100%, Chad Gable came down to help his partner. And they were wrecked as a team.

Winner: AOP


You Merely Adopted the Dark, I Was Born in It


Equipped with a gas mask and a small army, Dean Ambrose made his way to the ring to discuss his growing disdain for both Seth Rollins and the WWE Universe.

The crowd chanted for Rollins, to which Ambrose responded with these sage words: “life sucks and you don’t always get what you want.” He then said that at TLC, he would be taking the Intercontinental Championship for himself.

At this, Seth Rollins barrelled through the SWAT team, then chased Dean Ambrose through the crowd. Rollins got in a few good jabs but perhaps came to regret his decision to ambush The Lunatic, as Ambrose beat the living daylights out of him once the action spilled back into the ring area.


Heath Slater vs. Rhyno


Long-time besties, Heath Slater and Rhyno, were forced to face each other for a spot on Raw. Slater’s got kids, Rhyno has been working hard on his career, it’s a bad time for everyone involved. After a short match, Heath Slater defeated Rhyno with a neckbreaker, earning his spot on the show, but costing his best friend his job.

Heath Slater pleaded with Baron Corbin to help Rhyno, but the GM was too excited to reveal his plans for Slater to give Rhyno a second thought, pulling out a referee uniform and crushing Slater’s dreams.

Winner: Heath Slater


Finn Bálor vs. Jinder Mahal


After chipping away at the Maharaja, Finn Bálor was about to defeat Mahal via the Coup de Grâce but The Singh Brothers intervened. Luckily for Bálor, Jinder Mahal wasn’t able to catch his breath before Apollo Crews ran down with the assist, taking out the Singh Brothers and leaving Bálor open to score the victory against Mahal.

Charly Caruso was in the middle of interviewing Finn Bálor about his eventful night when Drew McIntyre struck, putting the boots to Bálor until he was pulled away by officials.

Winner: Finn Bálor


Nia Jax and Tamina vs. Ronda Rousey and Ember Moon


Earlier in the evening, Ember Moon was announced as Ronda Rousey’s chosen tag team partner. Nia and Tamina hot started the match by attacking Ronda before Ember had even made her entrance, but Ronda and Ember made them pay by cutting the ring in half and wearing Tamina down while keeping her away from her partner.

The tables were turned when Nia finally tagged in, as she and Tamina used the same strategy against Ember Moon. Ronda Rousey got the hot tag and together, she and Ember brought down Nia Jax and Tamina in the form of an Eclipse followed by an armbar on Tamina.

Winner: Ronda Rousey and Ember Moon
