Monday Night RAW 24th December 2018: All matches, results and reviews

Almost all of us are a big fan of WWE. Whatever it does or it shows are reviewed by us. That was wrong, that should have been done, this superstar deserved to win etc. and many more. We talk among ourselves what should have been done and what lacked in the episodes. Now, it is a starting of the reviewing of the episodes we see on Monday Night RAW and Tuesday Night SmackDown. For all those who missed the matches, you can see here what happened.

Remember, I am not going to talk about the highlights. If I do, it will be a very long article. I will be listing all what happened and will be reviewing those.

On this article, I will be taking about Monday Night RAW that took place on 24th December 2018. Let us go through it –

RAW on 24th December was a must watch because the McMahon Family and Triple H in the previous RAW had made the announcement that a new start would be made and that each and every superstar would get their chance, and also the new faces would be introduced. So, it would be great to see the Authority taking up face role.

– RAW kicked off with Elias in the middle of the ring in his usual style, holding his guitar with the microphone in the front, but one unusual thing – he was wearing a Christmas Hat. He told the WWE Universe that he was about to give then the best gift of all – a humiliating Bobby Lashley, thus starting the first match of the night.

Elias vs Bobby Lashley (Miracle on 34th Street Fight)

Probably the best match of the night and the best match that Elias could have got into in his career. This was an incredibly entertaining match. All types of holiday weapons were stacked outside the ring and according to the stipulation of the match, anything could be used. Lashley was in control in the early stage of the match, but soon Elias took control and won the match after using some interesting weapons like the Christmas Tree, a bowling ball and finally, his guitar.

WinnerElias

– Heath Slater appeared backstage during the break, wishing for Christmas that his best friend Rhyno was back.

Bobby Roode and Chad Gable (c) vs The Revival (WWE RAW Tag-Team Championships)

You must accept that Vince McMahon is doing pure injustice with the RAW Tag Team Titles. Within the last three months, we have seen the titles change place nearly four or five times. And, look at SmackDown Live. Whenever we have felt that the titles are now stable with one team, the plan changes!

However, the Tag Team Titles are now in the hands of Bobby Roode and Chad Gable. And, they are in feud with The Revival, who deserved to win the titles a lot earlier. And this time too, the match ended with the two Glorious one retaining. Even the match was not that entertaining, with the win coming with a boring roll up by Gable to Dash Wilder.

WinnerBobby Roode and Chad Gable

Finn Balor vs Drew McIntyre vs Dolph Ziggler (Triple Threat Match)

Yet once again it feels like Finn Balor is being under-used. However, this match did not disappoint. All the three superstars gave their best and made the match entertaining. Drew dominated in the most stages of the match thanks to his physical strength.

But Balor excelled in the end stages after hitting a Coup De Grace on Drew first and then on Dolph to pin him and win the match. It was a great win for Balor with the Royal Rumble ahead.

WinnerFinn Balor

Vince McMahon’s 3 big announcements

Mr. McMahon appeared backstage and made 3 huge announcements. Firstly, John Cena will be back soon. Second, we’ll get women’s tag-team titles in 2019 and third, Ziggler will face McIntyre in a steel cage next week on WWE RAW.

Mickie James, Alicia Fox &Dana Brooke vs Sasha Banks, Bayley & Ember Moon

A really eventful 6-women tag team match which followed Mr. McMahon’s announcement. As always, the baby faces won the match after some interesting hits from Sasha Banks and Bayley. Sasha hit Alicia Fox and it followed with Bayley immediately hitting a Bayley-To-Belly to Fox for the win.

WinnerSasha Banks, Bayley & Ember Moon

 

Paul Heyman helps bring in the Christmas cheer

Out next in the ring was Brock Lesnar’s advocate Paul Heyman. He talked about Braun Strowman asking Santa Claus for the replica of the WWE Universal title when he was small and that he had the chance of winning the real one now. Just then the music of Strowman hit, and he went face to face with Heyman and put a red nose and antlers on the petrified advocate of Lesnar.

He also had a message for Lesnar – he was going to be fit in the Royal Rumble and that Lesnar would ‘Get These Hands’!

Ronda Rousey (c) vs Natalya (RAW Women’s Championship)

Two friends fought it out for the Women’s Championship Title. None of the women were dominant and the match was equally poised. We did see a lot of Sharpshooters and judo throws. But in the end, the Baddest Bitch on the Planet won through her trademark Armbar.

WinnerRonda Rousey

Heath Slater vs Jinder Mahal

I don’t know from where did this match come from. But during the match, Jinder Mahal was distracted by a Santa Claus spreading cheers at the ring side. Taking advantage, Slater hit Mahal with a high kick and pinned him but the Singh Brothers broke the pin and started beating down Slater.

Santa entered the ring and helped Slater clear it, before hitting Jinder Mahal with the Gore. Then he revealed himself as Rhyno. Finally Slater got his Christmas wish fulfilled.

WinnerHeath Slater by disqualification

Seth Rollins vs Baron Corbin

It would not be wrong to call this a time pass match. There was no build up for this match, and was not a worthy main-event. However, both the wrestlers did whatever they could to make this match worth watching. Rollins had a geared up start fir some time, but Corbin took over soon, and after a lot of beatings, Rollins was able to hit his signature Curb Stomp for the win.

WinnerSeth Rollins

Biden Orders Dishonorable Discharge for 46% of Troops Who Refuse Vaccine

Biden Orders Dishonorable Discharge for 46% of Troops Who Refuse Vaccine

SDI Productions / E+

The Biden administration is seeking dishonorable discharges for 46% of troops who refuse to get the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine.

The Pentagon mandated vaccines for all U.S. service members (1.3 million) last month.

However, a reported 600,000 service members have declined to roll up their sleeves for the mRNA vaccines.

The White House issued a statement saying a proposed GOP NDAA bill preventing dishonorable discharges would “detract from readiness and limit a commander’s options for enforcing good order and discipline when a Service member fails to obey a lawful order to receive a vaccination.”

The statement said dishonorable discharges are necessary “To enable a uniformed force to fight with discipline, commanders must have the ability to give orders and take appropriate disciplinary measures.”

GOP Representative Mark Green of Tennessee said he was “appalled” at the Biden administration for suggesting dishonorable discharges for service members who refuse the shots.

“No American who raises their hand to serve our Nation should be punished for making a highly personal medical decision,” Green said.

Lieutenant Col Paul Douglas Hague resigned and forfeited his pension after 19 years of service because he “refuses President Biden’s ‘unethical, immoral and tyrannical’ vaccine mandate.”

“I cannot and will not contribute to the fall of this great nation and its people,” the father of seven wrote.

The House is expected to vote on the GOP’s NDAA bill, preventing dishonorable discharges, on Thursday morning.

She said the Covid lockdown was “tough” on her mentally because she wasn’t used to being alone. “It was tough. Tough for everyone — mentally, especially. The world wasn’t making sense.”

She told Vogue magazine:

“I was able to be still for a long time. Inspiration finally came when I remembered the little things that I love to do, the simple things that make me happy: grocery shopping, taking walks, going on bike rides, cooking.

“Those little things that I’m trying to incorporate into my lifestyle now that the outside is opening up again and we’re about to get right back into what things used to look like. I’m trying to make sure that I still keep those things in my life.”

When it comes to her own self-confidence, Rihanna said:

“I make a point to be present, I look at what’s around me, who is around me.

“And then I’m just grateful for those things; grateful for the moment. I think about how far I’ve come. And how much worse it could be — I could have missed all of this.”

However, there are still days when she doesn’t feel so confident, and she has a tip for those days.

“Pretend. Just pretend, girl. You have your days where you do and your days where you don’t, but push through, just be sure. You belong here, you’re sexy. Own your sh*t.”

Cleanup organizer describes Third World conditions at migrant camp in Texas; Thousands of pounds of garbage hauled away

A cleanup organizer described the third world conditions that exist at the Haitian immigrant encampment under the Del Rio international bridge.

John Rourke, who organizes cleanups around the world, appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show on Wednesday.

Rourke said he was disturbed by the unsanitary conditions where thousands of Haitians live in squalor under the bridge.

He said his organization picked up thousands of pounds of garbage from under the bridge.

Rourke described Haitians using sticks and branches to build makeshift lean-to shelters under trees near the bridge. The migrants were forced to move because the mounds of smelly garbage attracted flies, coyotes, roaches, and red ants.

“Let me tell you what I saw,” Rourke told Tucker.

“I saw people washing babies in the Rio Grande.

“I saw ladies breastfeeding babies, sleeping in dirt, 107 degrees outside, red ants everywhere, real coyotes – the ones that have four legs walking around.

“People are literally knocking down trees and setting up lean-tos and teepees and sleeping under those.”

Over 15,000 Haitians made the perilous journey from South America and Mexico after messages on What’s app told them U.S. Pres. Joe Biden would treat them kindly and give them jobs.

On the last leg of the trip – crossing the Rio Grande in knee-deep water – they were met by Border Patrol agents who herded them back into the murky water.

Using strong language, Waters said “I’m pissed!”. She called out the Biden administration for “taking us back to slavery days.”

“I’m unhappy, and I’m not just unhappy with the cowboys who were running down Haitians and using their reins to whip them — I’m [unhappy] with the [Biden] administration.

“We are following the Trump policy. He is the one that does not follow the Constitution and would not allow those seeking refuge to be able to petition to get into the country.

What the HELL are we doing here?”

YouTube/Project Veritas

Project Veritas released the second video of its undercover Covid-19 vaccine investigative series on Wednesday.

Part 2 exposes a U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] official calling for forced vaccinations of Black people.

According to the CDC, over 70% of Black New Yorkers are unvaccinated.

Project Veritas went undercover to record FDA economist, Taylor Lee, calling for forced vaccinations of Black people and keeping a “registry” for all unvaccinated Americans.

In the video, Lee said U.S. Government policy should be similar to Nazi Germany when it comes to forcing people to take the vaccine.

1632399900 155 FDA Official Calls for Forced Vaccinations of Black People ‘Like

Lee said health officials should go door-to-door forcing vaccines on people who are hesitant or fearful.

“Census goes door-to-door if you don’t respond. So, we have the infrastructure to do it. I mean, it’ll cost a ton of money. But I think, at that point, I think there needs to be a registry of people who aren’t vaccinated. Although that’s sounding very [much like Nazi] Germany.”

He also suggested blowing vaccine-filled darts at Black people who don’t comply.

“I think that a lot of the time — so there’s also this issue of — I remember reading about how with Covid trials, they were having an issue recruiting African American people. It was because of a different medication the government tried to do that was specifically designed to kill African Americans.”

Veritas Journalist: “Yeah. Can’t blame [African Americans].”

Lee: “I can’t. But at the same time, like, blow dart. That’s where we’re going… Again, blow darts. It is the perfect answer.”

In Part 1 of the Covid vaccination series, an undercover nurse working for the federal government recorded an HHS doctor saying the vaccine “is full of sh-t.”

Part 1 garnered over 4 million views in less than 24 hours on YouTube.com. It was scrubbed from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
