Raw results: Big Show makes surprise return to help Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe defeat Seth Rollins and AOP

It wasn’t just the World’s Largest Athlete who made a Raw comeback, as WWE Champion Brock Lesnar was also in Oklahoma City and Paul Heyman had some huge Royal Rumble news for the whole WWE roster.

Seth Rollins and AOP unveiled a big surprise, quite literally, when Kevin Owens and Samoa Joe revealed their partner for the main event in BT Sport's first ever Monday Night Raw.

The Big Show was recruited to their cause as they looked to settle their score with the “The Monday Night Messiah” and his two disciples.

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar is again looking to make history, as Paul Heyman announced that his client would put his title on the line against the whole WWE Universe.

The Beast has voluntarily declared himself for the dreaded No.1 slot in the Men’s Royal Rumble, which will be shown live on BT Sport Box Office, as Raw exploded into 2020.

But don't worry if you missed anything: BT Sport subscribers can watch the whole show right now on our enhanced video player.

If you've not yet signed up to WWE's new home, worry not! We can get you set up and watching not just every episode of Raw but also SmackDown, NXT and NXT UK, in just 15 minutes.

Match results

United States Champion Andrade beat Rey Mysterio

The Ultimate Underdog lit up the arena in an epic battle but ultimately came up short in his bid to regain the gold, thanks largely to Zelina Vega’s underhand intervention.

Raw Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders beat The Street Profits and The O.C.

The Street Profits certainly made a statement in their pursuit of “changing the conversation” on Raw but it was the reigning champions who claimed the victory in this triple threat match.

Erick Rowan beat KJ Orso

Erick Rowan showed off his new look for 2020 as the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion saw off KJ Orso but, as Mojo Rawley found out, it’s what’s in his cage that’s intriguing us most.

AJ Styles beat Akira Tozawa

Styles picked up the win convincingly but more importantly took the opportunity to taunt rival Randy Orton ahead of their showdown next week.

Charlotte Flair brawled with Sarah Logan

The match never actually got underway with Logan jumping The Queen before they made their way to the ring, but Flair had the last laugh.

Drew McIntyre beat No Way Jose

No Way Jose was the latest superstar to taste the boot of Drew McIntyre, who declared himself for the Royal Rumble as he looks to earn the first world title challenge of his career.

Aleister Black beat Shelton Benjamin

Despite starting 2020 with a win Aleister Black may not have felt too good in the aftermath of the show as long-time rival Buddy Murphy ambushed him from behind.

Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe and Big Show defeated Seth Rollins and AOP by disqualification

With Big Show preparing to double chokeslam AOP, Rollins smashed him in the back with a chair to hand the unlikely trio the win. Show had the last laugh, however, downing Rollins moments later in a post-match brawl.

Moment of the show

Undoubtedly it was the Big Show’s return.

Having undergone five hip surgeries in just a year-and-a-half it was great to see the iconic World’s Largest Athlete strutting his stuff once again.

Move of the show

Rey Mysterio may well be 45 years old but he is still one of the best in the business.

This springboard tilt-a-whirl alone is testament to that.

Quote of the show

"My client, Brock Lesnar, enters the Royal Rumble match… first!"

Paul Heyman

Heyman kicked off the show by announcing that The Beast will put his WWE Championship on the line against any superstar brave enough to dare take him on at the pay-per-view event later this month.

Picture of the show

Uh oh! Rollins launches an attack from the top rope but a huge Big Show hand is waiting to chokeslam him immediately upon arrival.
