Vince McMahon promised to shake things up on Raw last night, but what he did do was go back to a tried and trusted formula, albeit, a variation of it.
The McMahon's running the show has historically gone down well. But, now, Vince, Shane, Stephanie and Triple H will all be running the show as one.
That seems like a recipe for some conflict, but for now they all seem to be on the same page.
Following Monday's Raw, the WWE taped another edition of Raw that would air on Christmas Eve next week.
Unsurprisingly, fans began to leave the arena in Sacremento after nearly five-and-a-half-hour of wrestling, and not pay-per-view wrestling at that.
Thanks to NoDQ.com and Cindy G, below are the spoilers for the show.
* According to fans in attendance, a lot of the crowd left after the live RAW event.
* Elias opens the show with an in-ring promo. Elias was wearing a Santa hat and played a Christmas-themed song that insulted Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush.
* Elias defeated Bobby Lashley in a Miracle on 34th Street Fight and Lio Rush got dumped in egg nog.
* RAW Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode and Chad Gable retained their titles against The Revival.
* Finn Balor defeated Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler when Balor pinned Ziggler. Before the match, McIntyre cut a promo about wanting to win the Royal Rumble. After the match, McIntyre attempted to attack Ziggler but got a Zig Zag for his troubles.
* Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Ember Moon defeated Mickie James, Dana Brook, and Alicia Fox when Sasha pinned Mickie. The Riott Squad attacked the faces after the match.
* Paul Heyman cut a promo on behalf of Brock Lesnar and sang a remix of Silent Night. Braun Strowman came out and confronted Heyman. Strowman put a red nose and antlers on Heyman.
* Ronda Rousey retained the RAW Women's Title against Natalya.
* Heath Slater defeated Jinder Mahal by DQ when the Singh Brothers and Santa Claus got involved. Santa was revealed as Rhyno.
* Seth Rollins defeated Baron Corbin in the main event with the stomp. Rollins cut a backstage promo before the match. There were "You Got Fired" chants at Corbin.
WWE might claim that we are getting a fresh start, but there doesn't seem to be much fresh about this episode of Raw.
Of course, holiday episodes are often themed and devoid of real storyline progression, so perhaps we shouldn't look into this taping too much.
