Can you believe it? This week’s Raw and SmackDown Live are the go-home shows for the 2019 WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Two minutes ago we were drinking in the new year and now we’re on the brink of a couple of months of people pointing at a luminous sign in the sky…
Where does time go, eh?
Kicking things off in terms of the freshly announced matches, on the Raw side of proceedings we have a tag team match with Ronda Rousey and Natalya teaming up to face the Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection of Sasha Banks and Bayley. Of course, Sasha will be challenging Ronda for the Raw Women’s Championship at the Rumble next Sunday.
On the SmackDown side of things, two matches have been booked – the first of which will see Andrade square off against Rey Mysterio in a 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match.
The other match on SmackDown will see Samoa Joe take on Mustafa Ali – Ali was wiped out by Joe before their scheduled match started on this week’s show. Will we make it to the first bell on Tuesday?
