Raw Talk (12/20)

Jackie Redmond welcomes everyone to the show, and introduces viewers to her co-host, Matt Camp. Jackie and Matt cover a few of the highlights from Raw, until Jackie throws things over to Sarah Schreiber in the arena.

Rhea Ripley

Moments after handing Queen Zelina her first singles loss, Rhea Ripley joins Sarah Schreiber backstage. Sarah begins by recapping Ripley’s victory, and ask Rhea why the result changed this week, so Rhea says “from last week there was no interference. I went in there and got the job done.” Sarah asks about Carmella and Nikki A.S.H being barred from ringside, and wonders if Rhea missed her partner. Ripley explains “not having her there was weird, but I knew she was watching from somewhere. That’s all I needed.” Sarah pitches Raw Talk back over to Matt and Jackie, who sends the show to an ad break.

⁃ On the other side of the break, a few clips are shown from Raw, until Jackie hands the reigns over to Kevin Patrick.

Austin Theory

After continuing his ongoing storyline with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, Austin Theory is backstage with Kevin Patrick. Kevin kicks off the interview by asking Theory about the “huge stakes” that have been added to Austin’s next match. Theory tells Raw Talk viewers “there’s so much pressure on me right now, but Mr. McMahon is my mentor, and no one else can say that. Next week, it’s going to be Austin Theory’s Monday Night Raw.” Kevin tells Austin that he sounds confident after losing to Finn Balor on Raw, and Austin questions “lost? Is that all you remember from tonight? Don’t you remember me running Finn into that thing? I don’t even know what it was called. And then I took a selfie. And that’s what I’m gonna do next week! I’m gonna drop Finn, and take a selfie, and Mr. McMahon is gonna be proud.” Austin walks away, and KP sends Raw Talk back to the studio.

The Miz

Coming off of the heels of a surprise attack on Edge, The Miz and Maryse are backstage with Kevin Patrick, who has a few questions for the Two-Time Grand Slam Champion. Kevin recaps The Cutting Edge, and ask Maryse if the attack was premeditated. The Miz interjects, and explains “we don’t make plans! The only plan we have is to go home to our beautiful family, and celebrate Christmas.” The Miz goes on to ask “do you think the old Edge would have fell for that? If I had planned this whole thing out? Do you really think she thinks I’m a narcissist?” Maryse says “I love how obnoxious you are, it’s like everything has to revolve around you. It’s so hot.” The Miz and Maryse move on, and the show heads over to the WWE Global Headquarters one last time.

⁃ Matt and Jackie share their final thoughts on Monday Night Raw, until the show comes to a close.
