WWE also announced a high-stakes invitational poker tournament hosted by JBL.

WWE Raw Winners and Match Card
Usos def. Kevin Owens and Matt Riddle
Elias was removed from this match, which laid the groundwork for Ezekiel’s return. Instead, the man who killed Ezekiel was Kevin Owens.
Matt Riddle was knocked down by Solo Sikoa and stretched out of the arena. Hopefully this isn’t being done to remove and/or repackage it from the TV. Totally waiting to see Riddle and Randy Orton returns at the Royal Rumble.
Bayley Def. Asuka and Rhea Ripley
Corey Graves described Bayley as the “pillar” of the women’s division. Had he uttered this word during the Vince McMahon Era, his headphones would have been silent for the next 5 minutes.
Fans were very heavy-handed for this episode, as both Becky Lynch and Bayley seemed thrown out by the crowd’s early lack of reaction. At one point, when Becky Lynch fired Bayley, the frustrated Bayley even said “you can cheer for it…”
Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley may have broken the record for the longest stare of all time.
Bayley’s defeat of Asuka and protecting Rhea Ripley tells me that WWE saved Rhea Ripley against Bianca Belair for WrestleMania.
Bobby Lashley Confronts Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins told Bobby Lashley that Brock Lesnar was an even bigger star than him, and that was enough to drive Bobby to blind rage.
Bobby Lashley accidentally thrust a spear into producer Pete Williams during one of his patented pull-apart fights. I hope this doesn’t lead to some kind of story suspension.
theory definition mustafa ali
Backstage, Mustafa Ali told Austin Theory that he continued to write checks he couldn’t cash. Ah, the irony.
Say goodbye to Muay Thai Ali, Mustafa is wearing tights again.
Kevin Patrick referred to Mustafa Ali’s tweet earlier today, but he distanced himself from any 9/11 speeches.
Corey Graves stated that this could be Mustafa Ali’s last chance for the USA Championship, and we all know that’s a big lie.
OC def. Baron Corbin and Alpha Academy
This six-man tag team game arose from behind-the-scenes poker antics. Surprisingly, Damian Mysterio was “highlighted” and left with a match against Akira Tozawa.
Fans sang along as Chad Gable and Luke Gallows joked.
After a promising start, Baron Corbin and JBL are slowly turning into comedic characters in completely wrong ways.
Dominik Mysterio def. Akira Tozawa
Dominik Mysterio’s “I’m Your Mami” tee is the best t-shirt remix since Randy Orton’s RKO tee.
Dominik Mysterio came out like a stick from hell early in this match and he’s not in a good way.
Despite being used in a comedic role earlier in the night, Dominik Mysterio won and stayed clean with a Frog Splash.
Alexa Bliss Def. Nikki Cross and Becky Lynch
This was a bumpy crowd that was unfortunately very low from above during this match.
This was supposed to be the main event, but the crowd seemed to have left early. It was a full house, they were just tired.
Damage CTRL hit Becky Lynch with a shield grenade and that was the end of her night.
