With the Royal Rumble only two weeks away, the build-up for the big event is going into high gear and that will continue on this week’s Monday Night Raw. The big battle royales are going to be a huge part of WWE’s first pay-per-view of 2019, but there is so much more going on. On this week’s episode from the red brand, the Intercontinental Title will be on the line and it’s going to be defended in a big Triple Threat Match.
The feud between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins is going to continue, but a third name has now been added to the mix. Last week, Bobby Lashley showed up out of nowhere and destroyed Rollins to help out Ambrose in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.
Fans may not get answers, but they will certainly get some action as detailed in the Raw preview from the official website of WWE.

The Revival “conspiracy” continues
Over the course of the last couple of weeks, the Revival has had a number of chances at winning the Raw Tag Team Championship.
