Becky Lynch def Liv Morgan to retain the RAW Women’s Title after nailing the manhandle slam from the ropes. Looks like Becky Lynch was trying to put her foot on the rope while pinning Liv Morgan but was too far away. Making it a legitimate win

Liv Morgan vs Becky Lynch begins

"This Liv Morgan/Becky Lynch feud, by WWE standards, has been going on for a while so hopefully this match at Day1 is the blowoff. I like Liv but I don’t think she’s ready. And a win by Liv will just lead to a lukewarm reign and even more lukewarm matches," says Cole social media

BETH PHOENIX IS HERE!!!

HELL YEAHHHHHHHHHHH! THE GLAMAZON!!!! Maryse hits Edge with her handbag and Miz hits his finisher but the Rated-R superstar kicks out. And then out of nowhere comes Beth Phoenix. She has managed to get Maryse out of the equation and then the distraction allows Edge to hit the spear. Game Over! Edge wins

Face first off the table

Miz goes for a Skull Crushing Finale on top of the table but Edge counters and plants Miz face-first into the table.

BROOD EDGE

Edge bringing back his Brood character, even if it’s for 2 seconds is damn good.  Gangrel and Christian must be proud.

Next Up: Edge vs The Miz

Edge vs. The Miz is up next. Every Edge match feels special. Miz might not be on his level but he talked his way into making this match something special.

Royal Rumble is coming

Just noticed WWE has finally replaced the term “pay per view” with “premium live event.” Not sure if the term will catch on, but it makes sense since true PPVs have all but disappeared with the rise of streaming.

Drew McIntyre with the finisher and he goes for the pin. What a win and about time that Drew McIntyre put Madcap away. McIntyre picks up his 1st win of his 2022! Surprisingly good match between Drew and Madcap. But wait a bit, did Drew McIntyre just do the Adam Cole thing at the end!

07:18 (IST)02 Jan 2022
