Brock Lesnar makes his return to Raw tonight, but in what capacity? Will The Beast Incarnate become Vince McMahon’s henchman for Roman Reigns? Will he be entered into Royal Rumble 2016? Will Kalisto now get a shot at Alberto Del Rio’s U.S. Title after besting him in a non-title match last Thursday on SmackDown? Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens have unfinished business to settle. Becky Lynch will be looking for another shot at Charlotte’s Diva’s Title after Charlotte’s father, Ric Flair, cost The Lass Kicker the match last week. All this and more tonight on Monday Night Raw for Jan. 11, 2016.

Join us here at PMN for live updates and video highlights of all the action coinciding with the USA Network broadcast at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).


* Show kicks off with Vince and Stephanie McMahon in the ring and the 30-man Royal Rumble 2016 contestants out on stage. “Oh happy days,” Vince begins. “Take a look at the next WWE heavyweight champion.” Vince is going down the list of guys that could possibly win the Rumble, then the Wyatt Family interrupts with, “Anyone but you, Roman.” Vince mentions Brock Lesnar but then Roman interrupts and climbs in the ring with The Authority. He asks, “What happens if I win?” Steph laughs at him. Vince says there is a slight possibility Roman could win and to prove his worth he’ll be in a 1 VS. ALL match against several of the Royal Rumble contestants tonight. But first, Vince announces Ambrose vs. Sheamus. Sheamus attacks Ambrose from behind on the way in.

* Sheamus vs. Dean Ambrose — Both guys are counted out as they fight goes outside the ring. Ambrose has Sheamus busted up and bleeding. He slams him into the  announce table but then Ambrose is attacked by Kevin Owens until he’s run off by five officials.

* Titus O’Neil vs. Stardust — Titus finishes Stardust with a Clash of the Titus.

* Raw is Jericho segment with Chris Jericho and New Day. The Usos interrupt and they argue over which tag team is best. Jericho tries to set up a match between them.

* The Usos vs. New Day — After getting out-numbered, Jericho comes to Usos aid outside the ring and this sets up a distraction and Usos roll up New Day for the pin.

* Paul Heyman meets with Stephanie backstage as he advocates for his client at WrestleMania 32. Heyman doesn’t think Brock should compete in the Royal Rumble, but Steph says Vince gave the order.

* Sting is announced for WWE Hall of Fame 2016.

* Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Braun Strowman) vs. Social Outcasts (Bo Dallas, Heath Slater, Curtis Axel) — Ryback comes out to even the score and the Social Outcasts clean house.

* Kalisto vs. Alberto Del Rio (for Del Rio’s U.S. Title) — Kalisto hits a counter and rolls up Del Rio for the finish. Kalisto is the new United States Champion.

* Charlotte (c) vs. Brie Bella — Becky Lynch attacks Charlotte before the match and she’s unable to participate.

* ONE AGAINST ALL MATCH: Roman Reigns vs. Everyone — Reigns vs. Kevin Owens is first up. Reigns gives a valiant effort but is eventually attacked by the whole gang at the order of Vince. Lesnar then comes out and removes the remaining competitors including Sheamus and Del Rio. Lesnar is the only man left standing. He walks over to Roman and gives him an F5 and walks off.
