The final Raw of 2020 rolled into the ThunderDome and looked like there could be major Royal Rumble implications as Keith Lee took on Sheamus for a WWE Championship opportunity next week on Raw.

Keith Lee def. Sheamus – Match for a future WWE Championship Opportunity

WWE began with a tribute to former Champion Jon Huber who sadly passed away earlier this week. Drew McIntyre kicked off his promo with his own tribute to the man formerly known as Luke Harper before getting down to business and being interrupted by Sheamus.

The two men talked about how much they wanted to face off for the WWE Championship before Keith Lee made his way to the ring. After a war of words, McIntyre asked for a referee and kicked off the show in style with a match between the two men. Ahead of the match, Sheamus landed two Brogue Kicks on Lee.

After weeks of issues, Sheamus and Keith Lee finally collided one-on-one with a WWE Championship shot on the line. It was the physical encounter that was expected from the two heavyweights but despite the build-up, it was Keith Lee who picked up the win following an impressive Spirit Bomb.

After the match, Keith Lee confronted WWE Champion Drew McIntyre who was sat on commentary.

Gran Metalik def. The Miz

The Miz continued to push for a way to reclaim his Money in the Bank contract and somehow ended up in the sights of Gran Metalik. The King of the Ropes almost had Miz several times in the opening seconds which showed that Miz wasn’t prepared for this match mentally. Despite how random this match was, Metalik was able to pick up the shock win with a roll through, to put himself on the map on Raw.

Shayna Baszler def. Dana Brooke

After Shayna Baszler was the reason that her partner Mandy Rose was taken out of Survivor Series, Dana Brooke looked for some revenge in one-on-one action. Brooke came close to picking up the win off a spinning neck breaker, but in the end, Brooke was forced to tap to the Kirofuda Clutch. After the match, Mandy Rose was also locked in the Kirofuda Clutch by Baszler.

AJ Styles def. Elias

Following an altercation backstage earlier in the night, Styles and Elias decided to settle their differences in the ring. While the action unfolded in the ring, Omos intimidated Jaxson Ryker at ringside. After kicking out of a Drift Away, Styles delivered a Phenomenal Forearm for the victory.

Mustafa Ali def. Ricochet

After weeks of being targeted by RETRIBUTION, Ricochet finally took on the leader and despite putting up a good fight, the numbers game became too much for the star once again.

Ricochet fought back against all four men but was unable to find a way out of the Koji Clutch from Ali. After the match, Ali offered Ricochet a place in RETRIBUTION but he once again declined before delivering The Recoil to Ali.

Charlotte Flair def. Nia Jax via DQ

It was six months ago that Nia Jax attacked Charlotte backstage and put her out of action. Finally, The Queen was looking for some revenge. Charlotte was about to lock in Figure 8 before Shayna Baszler interfered and locked in the Kirofuda Clutch. This caused the disqualification, and Asuka was forced to even the odds.

The Hurt Business def. Riddle, Jeff Hardy, and The New Day

It was an even match up between four stars who have some legitimate issues at present. The New Day is seemingly coming for these Tag Team Championships and looked as though they could pick up the victory, but in the end, Jeff Hardy cost his team when he tapped to The Hurt Lock.

Did Randy Orton Set Alexa Bliss on Fire?

Earlier in the show, Alexa Bliss invited Randy Orton into her Playground, but The Viper decided to invade the Firefly Fun House instead. After attacking The Fiend’s puppets, Bliss challenged Randy Orton to what seemed like a match.

During the final segment on this week’s Raw, Alexa Bliss revealed that her challenge to Randy Orton was to set her on fire as he did to The Fiend. Orton initially refused, before the lights went down and it appeared as though The Viper decided to deliver.
