WWE RAW Results February 3rd, 2020: Winners, Grades, Video Highlights for latest Monday Night RAW

Welcome to SporstArenaa News’ live results for WWE Raw!
Sooooo……tonight is a bit weird. If you haven’t been following Ringside News’ feed today, you might have missed that WWE Raw was in jeopardy most of the day. There’s been a heck of a lot of snow in Salt Lake City, where the show is happening, and there was talk of Raw being cancelled. Vince McMahon is not one to cancel a show for any reason, so the show will be going on regardless.
That means tonight’s show will be rather unpredictable. We don’t know what talents will be at the show, and which won’t. Randy Orton was scheduled to explain his actions last week, in regards to Edge, but we aren’t sure if he will be there to do so. And that is literally all that has been announced for tonight’s Raw.
So, a light preview tonight because there is nothing to preview. Should be an interesting show as WWE starts the build toward Super ShowDown. Follow along on the Ringside News app, Instagram, and Twitter. Enjoy the show!

WWE RAW

Monday Night Raw opens with a look back at the main event of last week’s show, in which Randy Orton brutally attacked Edge. We see extra footage of Edge being loaded into an ambulance.
It’s time for some answers.#RAW @RandyOrton pic.twitter.com/oU0YhoHrWi

— WWE (@WWE) February 4, 2020

The Viper, Randy Orton, slowly comes to the ring to the boos of the fans. Orton doesn’t speak, looks conflicted, and leans on the ropes. He eventually stands on the ropes and poses as the fans boos get louder, then does the same in another corner. He says he guesses he owes everyone an explanation. Randy says the thing is…but the fans cut him off with boos and chants for Edge.

Haven’t heard heat like this since the night after WrestleMania when Reigns beat ‘Taker. Orton continues to start and stop talking. Eventually he says “I can’t do this”, and drops the mic and walks off.

We see a few highlights of the Royal Rumble, centred around Brock and McIntyre. Later tonight, Ricochet will face Bobby Lashley and Seth Rollins in a Triple Threat to determine the number one contender to Brock at Super ShowDown – Ricochet is the obvious winner of that. And there will also be a 6-man elimination tag team match. Up first though, we’re getting a rematch of a match from last week that nobody was asking for!

*Commercial Break*

LANA VS. LIV MORGAN

The bell rings and Liv shoves Lana, who falls and says she has broken her wrist. The doctor forces Liv back but eventually Lana attacks her. Lana applies a neck submission.

Lana slams Liv down by the head, then gloats to the fans. Liv fires back and hits double knees. Morgan hits Lana with a reverse STO and scores the very quick pinfall.

Ruby Riott’s music hits and she comes to the ring! The fans chant for Ruby, and Liv goes to hug her but Ruby slams Liv down! Riott kicks Liv as she tries to get to her feet, then unloads right hands and kicks her back. Ruby attacks her from behind once more before leaving the ring. Lana then lifts and slams her.

There’s been a few weird production issues tonight; Liv came out to Lana’s graphics, and then the lights just went out in the ring for no reason. Drew McIntyre will be in action after the break.

*Commercial Break*

Back live, we get a replay of last week, when Drew McIntyre challenged Brock Lesnar to a match at WrestleMania. Drew comes to the ring and his opponent, Mojo Rawley, is already there. McIntyre thanks the fans for fighting through a blizzard to be there. Drew says he’ll be with Mojo in a minute but the match will only last three seconds. McIntyre directs his attention to Brock Lesnar and says he attacked him from behind last week. That’s fine though, because it shows him that Brock is scared of the “sexy Scotsman.” He says Brock knows that he’s big, strong, and has the Claymore Kick that will knock him out. McIntyre then acts startled and says he forgot Mojo was there. He tells him it will only take three seconds, then tells the referee to ring the bell.

DREW MCINTYRE VS. MOJO RAWLEY W/RIDDICK MOSS

The bell rings and Mojo turns from talking to Moss outside the ring, and gets hit with a Claymore Kick. Didn’t even take his jacket off.

Charly Caruso interviews Buddy Murphy and AOP backstage. Buddy says they’re focused on the Monday Night Messiah, and that Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe are not thinking smart. Seth appears and he tells them to go and get ready for their match, because he’s got this. Charly then asks Seth about the Triple Threat tonight. Rollins says life is funny; last week he was thrown out of the Rumble, but here he is with a second chance. Rollins says that he has beaten Brock twice and he knows that Drew has his heart set on Lesnar, but he needs to start preparing for the Monday Night Messiah.

Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring for the 6-man elimination tag, after the break.

He says he made that promise this time last year and he got a different response. He promised he would go to Wrestlemania and beat Lesnar for the Universal title and that’s exactly what he did. And he took that title and he defended it all across the world. From here to Paris, to Tokyo, to Seattle, to New York City. And instead of a proper welcome, he got crucified.

Rollins says he doesn’t hate them for it. Rollins says he’s here to say thank you. It’s because of them that he is the man that he is today. The man he has become and so proud of. And he is going to dethrone Brock Lesnar once again but this time it won’t be for him or for the fans but for the greater good. For something that you cannot begin to understand. It will be remembered in 10, 20, 100 years. He will go down as the man who saved this industry. Drew McIntyre won’t go to Wrestlemania to fight the beast, he will go to fight the Monday Night Messiah.

Bobby Lashley and Ricochet make their entrances, and this match will happen after the break.
