First Episode of Raw - Matches and predictions


The Road to the Royal Rumble is set as the event will take place on Saturday, January 28 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.  As usual, the winner of the men's and women's royal rumble will main event a two-day WrestleMania.  Tonight, there should be a clear picture as to which superstars will enter the royal rumble or if there is a qualifying match to clinch their way in.  Rhea Ripley and Cody Rhodes seem to be the favorites in the social media outlets but there can be others such as Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, and others that can change the game.  

Tonight on Raw will be two title matches.  And if we learned anything from Smackdown, titles can change hands at any given moment.  Could we see new champions?

Bianca Belair (C) vs Alexa Bliss - Raw Women's Championship

Alexa Bliss earned her way to become the number one contender after winning a triple threat match and defeating Bayley.  Bliss is a five-time world champion (3 times, Raw Champion) but her erratic behavior will be the focus tonight.  Although Bliss is many a favorite to become a new champion, Belair will continue to fight on all odds to retain the championship.  

Prediction:  Belair retains

Austin Theory (C) vs Seth Rollins - United States Championship

Theory held the title the first time for 75 days.  Its been 33 days on his second reign.  Both Rollins and Theory want to settle the score once and for all.  

Prediction:  Austin Theory wins.

What are you thoughts on these two title matches?
