The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

WWE Raw Results:

It was the TLC go-home episode of Raw on Monday night. One of the only things we were guaranteed was a divorce angle from Rusev and Lana. What other (hopefully wrestling-based) fun would be had on Monday? Here are the full results:

  • Drew McIntyre def. Matt Hardy
  • Viking Raiders (c) def. Street Profits to retain the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship
  • Aleister Black def. Akira Tozawa
  • Humberto Carillo def. Andrade
  • Buddy Murphy def. Zack Ryder
  • Becky Lynch def. Kabuki Warriors by disqualification
  • Erick Rowan def. Local competitor
  • Rey Mysterio (c) def. A.J. Styles to retain the WWE United States Championship

WWE Raw Takeaways:

Lana and Rusev got divorced to start the show, but Rusev only agreed if he got a match with Lashley. Let’s hope that match will be the end of this painful storyline. It did end with Rusev putting Bobby Lashley through a table, so we have that going for us.

Kevin Owens spent lots of his night hunting down the Authors of Pain. At one point Mojo Rawley gave him wrong directions. In return, Kevin Owens gave Mojo his best Rick James impression. Slap!

Owens would meet Mojo again, this time accompanied by Owens’ old friend Sami Zayn. Zayn would demand an apology for Mojo, but Rawley would instead eat a Stunner from K.O.

Owens found AOP’s van, but was beaten down by the duo. A figure then revealed himself from the van… Seth Freakin’ Rollins. Rollins would then explain himself to the WWE Universe, saying they made him make this choice.

 

Liv Morgan is coming back to our screens! She got a vignette during Raw this week, promising a makeover. Let’s hope this repackaging goes smoother than Emmalina.

Latest From FPC on SportsCastr

After being beaten down by the Kabuki Warriors, Charlotte and Becky Lynch will join forces at TLC. They challenged Asuka & Kairi Sane to a TLC match for the Women’s Tag Team Titles at TLC, and it should be one of the best matches on the card.

Batista & NWO To Be Inducted Into WWE Hall of Fame

WWE announced two acts to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame over Wrestlemania weekend: Batista and the New World Order. While the NWO consisted of many, many wrestlers over the years, it will be the lineup of Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, and Syxx (X-Pac/Sean Waltman). The inductions were first reported by ESPN (of the NWO) and People (of Batista).

All four NWO members will now be two-time WWE Hall of Famers. Hogan, Nash & Hall have all been inducted as singles competitors, and Waltman was inducted with D-Generation X last year.

Batista already has his inductor lined up. In a response to a tweet by Xavier Woods, Batista announced that he has asked for Fit Finlay to induct him into the Hall of Fame.

We at FPC Wrestling took a stab at predicting the total Hall of Fame class back in September. So far we have one name right, but check out all our predictions here.

New Japan 2020 America Tour Announced

The first dates of a New Japan American tour were announced by NJPW of America on Twitter. Five dates will encompass the tour in January-February 2020. The tour is titled “New Beginning USA”, and as of yet there have been no official wrestler announcements.

One for the Road:

Street Profits to SNL confirmed? Not likely, but they’re so charismatic that this segment was kind of fun.
