WWE Monday Night Raw in Miami is Jan. 25 at the AmericanAirlines Arena, and Paul Triple H Levesque will be showing off championship gold there, after winning the WWE World title the night before at the Royal Rumble.
It marks the 14th title reign for the King of Kings, and if anything is going to entice an emotionally-charged reaction from South Florida fans, it’s seeing The Authority with the belt, held by the Executive Vice President (Talent/Live Events/Creative). Instant heat is the goal, and Triple H will achieve that.
At the Amway Center in Orlando on Sunday, Triple H took the 30th and final spot in the Royal Rumble battle royal.
Never miss a local story.
The final four featured Dean Ambrose, Sheamus, WWE World champ Roman Reigns and The Game. Reigns eliminated Sheamus, giving two former members of The Shield a chance, but The Authority rules as Triple H eliminated Reigns and then Ambrose to become the new champ.
Thus, he’s got two words for ya.
Late in the Rumble to set the final four stage, Triple H eliminated Dolph Ziggler and then teamed with Sheamus to rid the ring of Bray Wyatt. Ambrose followed by eliminating Chris Jericho, who had a very good showing. Brock Lesnar was eliminated 21st by the three Wyatt family members, after they were already eliminated by Lesnar.
After the Rumble victory, Triple H celebrated in the ring with his wife and Authority cohort, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon, and his father-in-law, WWE Chairman/CEO Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
Speaking of fathers, with an assist to her famous father (Ric Flair), Charlotte retained the WWE Divas title by beating Becky Lynch. Afterward Sasha Banks appeared and kicked Lynch out of the ring. The Boss then shook hands with Charlotte, before blind-siding her.
Also, WWE Intercontinental champ Dean Ambrose beat Kevin Ownes in a Last Man Standing Match.
Kalisto regained the U.S. title by defeating Alberto Del Rio.
WWE tag champs The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston with Xavier Woods) defeated The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso).
Pre-show, Mark Henry and Jack Swagger defeated Darren Young and Damien Sandow, The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley) and The Ascension (South Florida’s own Konnor and Viktor) to qualify for the Royal Rumble.
Oh yeah, AJ Styles, you made have heard of him, made his WWE debut in the Royal Rumble match.
The fallout from the Royal Rumble will pack some excitement, and to be there live in Miami will be exciting.
Hey, Raw in Miami. Could this be the set-up for Triple H vs. Miami’s own The Rock at WrestleMania 32?
