RK Bronament Finals WWE Raw
Spread the love

WWE’s Monday Night Raw comes to us live tonight from the Xcel Energy Center of St. Paul, Minnesota. There are still sixteen days left in 2021, so we still have a way to go until WWE’s first event of 2022, Day 1. We do have at least one match – specifically the RK-Bronament finals – and one segment on the docket for the three-hour show tinted in red. But there’s enough room to speculate. Let’s take a closer look.

WWE Raw Card and Preview (12/13/21) – RK-Bronament Finals

Finals Of The RK-Bronament: Street Profits vs The Mysterios

RK-Bro’s sponsored #1 Contender’s tournament has its final match in play as two babyface teams collide. On one end, it seems the Street Profits always manage to catch the ire of one Omos, from attacks to managing to defeat him (even if by count-out) for this slot. Meanwhile, The Mysterios have fallen prey to Adam Pearce’s recent dubious management tactics, placing Dominik in grave danger against Bobby Lashley and so forth. It seems the outcome of the RK-Bronament finals depends far more on who between Omos & Adam Pearce gets their shenanigans in rather than who between the two teams is better. I guess we’ll find out.

Bobby Lashley to Explain His Attack

It’s somehow been 5 weeks since Seth Rollins won a Ladder Match for the right to challenge Big E, now official for Day 1. But in the long time waiting, Kevin Owens managed to play out a heel turn and win his own way into the match through manipulation and using Rollins’s carelessness against him. That was one wrench thrown into a match that was technically made official at the start of November. Last week, a second wrench came out of nowhere when Bobby Lashley attacked both of them and WWE Champion Big E. “The All Mighty” will explain himself tonight on Raw and it’s pretty safe to assume he’ll somehow fit into Raw’s Day 1 main event picture.

The Road To The AJ/Omos Split

It was around a year ago when AJ Styles first introduced Big Jordan, later renamed Omos. Though, when I say first, it’s WWE’s interpretation of “first” as he and another very tall fixture first showed their faces (because Omos was actually a masked ninja beforehand) in the Raw Underground segments with Shane McMahon as a bouncer. Since siding with Styles, the big man has been a regular of Raw, and at WrestleMania, the duo won the Raw Tag Team Championship. However, now past the year mark, we started to see the chips forming in their bond after their loss last week to Street Profits due to miscommunication. We’ve seen this trope play out hundreds of times. We just have one question: who’s heel and face?

How Will WWE Follow Up on Liv Morgan?

Liv Morgan headlined last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, in a losing effort against Becky Lynch when Lynch, once again, used the ropes for leverage as she’s done on all her major matches since October. Regardless of whether Morgan was “pushed properly” or another victim of poor booking, she still remains the most likely challenger to “Big Time Becks” for Day 1. If last week’s match was a tribute to Lita vs Trish Stratus in 2004, that was followed up by a match at New Year’s Revolution (from my dear Puerto Rico). Though, hopefully, this time on Day 1, there’s no major injury.

With that in mind, those are the major talking points heading into Monday Night Raw tonight, starting at 8 PM ET on the USA Network.
