WWE Raw results Monday December 9th 2020

AJ Styles, The MIz & John Morrison def. Sheamus & Drew McIntyre via pinfall when Styles hit Sheamus with a Phenomenal Forearm. McIntyre and Sheamus got off to a hot start, dominating the early action before almost colliding with each other on the outside. Instead, they stopped short, caught Morrison diving over the top rope and threw him over the announce table and into a chair. The powerhouse duo continued their dominance for the majority of the match until some underhanded tactics and illegal double teams allowed the heels to build a little momentum. Sheamus made a hot tag to McIntyre and the champion cleaned house until a cheap shot from Styles. Sheamus tagged himself in and cleaned house before accidentally hitting McIntyre with a Brogue Kick when Morrison ducked out of the way, allowing Styles to come off the top rope for the finish. Sheamus and McIntyre came face-to-face backstage after the match, eventually brawling until Pat Buck tried to separate them. Sheamus and McIntyre slammed Buck through a table and then left together to go get a beer.(WWE Raw)

 

Randy Orton asks for Bray Wyatt, gets The Fiend
Orton cut a show-opening promo in the ring, claiming that unlike ordinary men, he is not afraid to face The Fiend. After the brief promo, Orton said he was going to show up at the Firefly FunHouse, knock on the door and wait for someone to let him in. Before he could leave the ring, the Firefly Fun House theme hit and Wyatt appeared, saying Alexa Bliss wasn’t with him because Orton had been so “naughty” last week. Wyatt then introduced a game called “Let’s Get Randy,” asking the members of the Fun House how Orton should be punished at TLC. After being dissatisfied with the answers from the puppets, Wyatt said not to worry and that “He” always has the right answer. Orton then challenged Wyatt to face him in a match later in the night, as himself, not The Fiend. (WWE Raw)

Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton ended in a no contest. The match immediately spilled outside where Wyatt slammed Orton on the announce table before taking a headset and announcing that the show was going to commercial. After the break, Orton had the upper hand and was handing a beating to Wyatt as Wyatt responded with laughter. The action continued to go back and forth, with Orton growing frustrated that his standard arsenal — and a host of shortcuts — were not getting the job done. Orton used a thumb to the eye after a Sister Abigail attempt and was setting up to hit the RKO when the lights began to go out. He still hit the move, but the lights were all the way out before the referee could count. When the lights returned, The Fiend was under Orton and The Fiend quickly locked in the mandible claw as the show went off the air. (WWE Raw)

After Kingston missed coming off the top, again hurting his leg, Alexander was able to hit his finish for the win.

Bobby Lashley def. Jeff Hardy via submission with the Hurt Lock. Hardy was already putting up a good fight when Riddle made his way to ringside to take out MVP and make sure Hardy wasn’t battling against unfair odds. Riddle gave Hardy instruction on how to fight out of submissions and cheered him on. Hardy appeared to be on the verge of victory after a Twist of Fate, but Lashley hit a spear and locked in the Hurt Lock for the win. After Lashley refused to release the hold, Riddle made the save.
