Closing out the 12/6 Monday Night Raw was a Raw Women’s Championship match between Liv Morgan and the champion Becky Lynch. Lynch retained by rolling Liv up and using the ring ropes for leverage.

Scheduled for the 12/13 Raw is Rey and Dominik Mysterio versus The Street Profits (Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins). Both teams won matches to advance in the ‘RK-Bronament’. The winners of the match next week are going to challenge Randy Orton and Riddle for the Raw Tag Team Titles.

To open Raw, Kevin Owens went one-on-one with WWE Champion Big E in a non-title Steel Cage match. Big E won by escaping the cage but post-match, Owens, Big E and Seth Rollins were all beaten down by Bobby Lashley.
