WWE RAW REPORT: WE HAVE A WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH AT THE RUMBLE, ALEXA IS BACK, HHH/ORTON, PARTNERS BECOME OPPONENTS ON THE SAME NIGHT, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2021-01-11 23:00:00

We begin with a look back at last week's episode of Raw and everything that Randy Orton did to the Legends.

We are in St. Petersburg, Florida and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Samoa Joe, and Byron Saxton.

Triple H makes his way to the ring.

Hunter says he still has it.  It has been a long time since he has been here but he welcomes everyone to the Thunderdome and Raw.   He says it is really diffilcult.

Randy Orton's music interrupts and he makes his way to the ring.

Randy says the Office decided to show up because Drew McIntyre couldn't.  Randy says he was supposed to have a pretty big match tonight.

Hunter says he is aware and Randy is aware that it is not going to happen.

Randy says that he is aware.  Since you decided to get all prettied up and fly down to Tampa, you are here to make a ruling.  Randy asks if you are going to announce that I am entering the Royal Rumble last, or are you going to do what is best for business and hand me the WWE Championship.

Hunter says if Randy wants the WWE title, he can win the Royal Rumble.

Randy says the only reason why you are here is to say something, make a call, or anything to benefit me.  What is it?

Hunter asks if this is where we are?  Cheap threats?  Do you think I am scared?  It has been impressive watching you over the last year.  I have sat back and watched you do a lot of things.  I saw the old Randy Orton step into the dance.  It has been a while.  I was in awe.  A lot of people criticized and didn't understand what you did.  They thought you crossed lines and went too far.  I saw you contemplate that match, light it, look at it, and watch it burn down knowing that everything you wanted was on the other side of that flame.

All you had to do was drop it and you did.  I don't know if I was ever more proud of you than in that moment because I would have done the same thing.  It stood between you and what you wanted.  It benefited you.  During that time, there have been a few things that got him dressed up and got him to fly down to Tampa.  There are a few things you have done that I don't understand.  You kicked legends in the head, threatened them, and humiliated them.  I don't understand when it doesn't benefit you.

Ric Flair is a legend and it did not benefit you.  You are not a legend.  You are nothing but a no good prick.

Randy says that you can call him what you want but he is in his peak and in his prime.  He says he is a legend in his own time, just like Triple H.  What do you say?  Do you still have it in you?  Is the Cerebral Assassin in there?  Is the Game in there?  Is the King of King?

I will not challenge you to a match, but to a good old fight.  We have known each other for more than 20 years.  Let's go toe to toe tonight.  Accept my challenge.

Hunter says when someone does something that does not benefit you, you say no.

Randy tells Hunter there is no benefit.  Is it because Stephanie, your wife, isn't here tonight and you couldn't get your balls out of her purse.

Triple H returns to the center of the ring.  

Hunter punches Orton and Orton goes to the floor.

Orton says he guesses that means yes.

Tom mentions that nothing has been accepted yet by Triple H.

Tom mentions what happened between Ric Flair and Charlotte Flair.  We see footage from last week.

Charlotte is in Gorilla Position and Sarah ambushes Charlotte to ask about what happened last week.  Charlotte says it was classless and Lacey is not the first and will not be the last to flirt with my dad in front of me.  Charlotte says she talked to her dad and wants to know why she is being asked about her dad.  Charlotte says she is going to show this classless woman how to act like a lady.

Lacey is with Sarah in the back and she tells Charlotte to take a seat and have a few deep breaths.  I did not flirt with anyone who did not want to flirt with me.  Ric Flair is a charming man.  This match is dedicated to the Nature Boy.  This one's for you sweetheart.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Drew McIntyre says he wishes he could be at the Thunderdome, but he says he tested positive for COVID 19.  He says he doesn't have symptons but anyone can catch it and the only way to stop it is to work together.  Wear your masks and follow social distancing.  It is to protect everyone.  He says he will see you soon.
