We hear from Damage CTRL (Bayley, Iyo Sky, Dakota Kai). All three members say that they will win the women’s Royal Rumble.

Austin Theory heads to the ring. Theory brags about retaining at Raw Is XXX and says that he will be heading straight to the men’s Royal Rumble match, and win. All of a sudden, The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) show up. Kofi says he only represents Austin Creed, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Austin, Texas, and Xavier Woods tells Theory to get down to business as the show is two hours long. The New Day say that they will win the men’s Royal Rumble match, but Theory says he is the biggest star that there is in WWE. Suddenly, The Miz shows up. Miz tells Theory he has participated in Royal Rumble matches since before he hit puberty, but Theory responds with “Doesn’t that mean you’re old?” Miz replies by saying he is better than he will ever be and he will eliminate him and 29 others to win the Royal Rumble. Miz says there is no one more dangerous than him with a chip on his shoulder, then decides to give an example of what will happen tomorrow. Miz and Theory then attack The New Day, then Bobby Lashley gets in the ring and fights everyone. Lashley says that since Brock Lesnar interrupted his United States Championship match, he will terrorize everyone around here. Suddenly, Brock Lesnar shows up from out of the crowd and attacks Lashley before telling him he will see him tomorrow in the Royal Rumble.

We hear from Rhea Ripley, who says that she has had her fair share of Royal Rumbles and has come close to winning and that 2023 is her year to win it and main event WrestleMania.

Backstage, Kayla Braxton interviews Drew McIntyre and Sheamus. Drew thinks Sheamus will win the Royal Rumble, but Sheamus bets on Drew to win it as they both smack each other. As for Hit Row (Top Dolla and Ashante “Thee” Adonis), Sheamus says they will send them back to Skid Row.

The Viking Raiders (Ivar and Erik) attack Drew McIntyre and Sheamus from behind before the next match. After the commercial break, Hit Row (Top Dolla and Ashante “Thee” Adonis) heads to the ring, but finds out that Drew McIntyre and Sheamus have given up their spot in the tag team tournament to go after The Viking Raiders.

Backstage, Kayla Braxton interviews Kevin Owens. Owens says he is facing Solo Sikoa tonight so he can become the undisputed champion tomorrow. He says that two years ago, the title was his, but The Bloodline did everything they could to stop that and tomorrow will be no different. As he says that he has to take out as many members of The Bloodline as possible to win tomorrow, The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) show up. Officials – including Adam Pearce – quickly rush into place to stop a potential brawl. After the commercial break, The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) are escorted out of the arena. Jey Uso then calls Sami Zayn for a favor.

Bray Wyatt’s original entrance theme hits, but it is really LA Knight holding a tiny lantern while wearing Bray Wyatt’s original white slacks, black shirt, Hawaiian shirt and Trilby hat. Knight heads to the ring and takes the disguise off, then says the biggest moment in Raw history happened this week when he showed up and talked to the fans even when they did not deserve it. He then says that The Undertaker showed up to assist Bray Wyatt “like a turd in the punch bowl” because neither of them wanted him one-on-one, then says Bray Wyatt has 24 years to bring all the advice The Undertaker gave him because his future will be torn up and laid out. Suddenly, the real Bray Wyatt shows up and says that LA Knight is not smiling on the outside and that the time to talk has come and gone. He says Knight will meet the man he has been looking for, then tells him to take his time tonight because tomorrow, “[he’ll] see.” Uncle Howdy then shows up in the rafters.
