  Monday Night Raw Results – January 30th, 2023

The post-Royal Rumble edition of WWE RAW opens up with a video package on last Saturday’s big event. We are live from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as Royal Rumble winner, Cody Rhodes, makes his way to the ring and he’s NOT ready to compete as he wear a suit.

Cody looks around and he looks at the Wrestlemania sign hanging from the rafters.

Cody asks the crowd what do they want to talk about. He says it goes without saying, but every week someone new is watching the show. Cody says he is not the same person he was when he started this journey on this show 15 years ago. He thought about driving up to Ohio Valley Wrestling at age 19. There was a sign that said ‘tomorrow’s superstars today’. He says he was getting ready to go inside and he thought to himself that he would be WWE champion within 2 years. I was ambitious and delusional because I also thought I would be the next John Cena. If he could go back and talk to 19 year old me, what would I say? Would I tell him it won’t go down that way? Would I tell him that he would get slapped so hard on live TV your knees will buckle? Would I tell him that he would be dashing and give out grooming tips? Would I tell him that he would put paint on his face? Would I tell him that the woman who calls out your names that she would become your wife? Would I tell him that he would get on fire? Would I tell him that he would go on an excursion that would take a toll on him? Would I tell him that on January 28, 2023 that he would win the Royal Rumble to punch a ticket to go on last on the biggest stage at Wrestlemania?

I wouldn’t tell him a single thing because every little piece on that road has been 100 percent worth it. I come out here tonight and I hear you singing along with the words to my music. The words at the start are mine. Wrestling has more than one royal family. WWE has more than one royal family. For it to be true and real and validated in my heart, I have to stand across from another. I have to stand across from an entire bloodline. I have to stand across from the Tribal Chief. I have to have to stand across from the biggest superstar on the planet. I have to stand across from Roman Reigns.

Cody says he has respect for Roman, but Wrestlemania is in 62 days. It might be 62 days for you, but it is 62 days for the rest of my life. On that night, it ends. Pull up a chair because someone else will be eating. You can be the Tribal Chief or the head of the table, but one thing he will not be is the WWE Undisputed Champion.

The lights go down and music plays for The Judgment Day. Finn Balor, Dominik Mysterio, and Damian Priest appear on the stage.

Finn Balor says he is a little confused. Are you going to return to do something original or are you going to knock off my old stuff like before. Dom says Cody ruined THE Judgment Day’s plans at the Rumble. Rhea won and you will get to hear her tell you who her opponent for Wrestlemania will be. Dom says he was supposed to win the Royal Rumble Match. Finn asks what happened to Rey that he couldn’t make it to the ring. Finn says Dom was lucky to find Rey’s mask.

Dom says Cody put his hands on him and ruined his night at the Rumble. Do you know what would have happened if you did it in prison? You would have gotten got.

Priest says Dom should be the only multi-generational star to main event Wrestlemania, not one who gets what they want. Rhea started at number one and won. Cody got given number 30.

Dom says Cody owes him. You owe him an apology for what he did last night [sic].

Cody says he doesn’t want to run the risk of pissing them off, but is Dom trying to scare him straight. Cody says this could be very different. He says he has respect for Dom’s dad.

Dom says that is really funny because he doesn’t respect his dad. Dom says he has no respect for anyone’s dad, especially Cody’s.

Cody says he gets this. We are 62 days to Wrestlemania. He could play it safe and try to stay healthy… or he could be him and kick your ass. He will do it to any of them. Let’s do it here and let’s do it tonight.

Patrick and Graves hype tonight’s show, including three qualifying matches for the WWE United States Title Elimination Chamber match – Seth Rollins vs. Chad Gable, Baron Corbin vs. Johnny Gargano, and Bronson Reed vs. Dolph Ziggler.

The Judgment Day is still barking at Cody Rhodes from the stage when the music of WWE Hall of Famer Edge hits to a big pop. Edge rushes out and attacks Finn Balor. Dominik Mysterio and Damian Priest join in as Edge fights back. Officials rush out to try and restore order on the entrance-way. Cody Rhodes exits the ring and helps Edge as we go to commercial.

– Cody Rhodes will face Finn Balor tonight.


Byron Saxton waits to talk to The Judgment Day. Byron asks Finn about the latest altercation with Edge. Finn says he thought Edge would have enough by now. Finn tells Edge that he works Mondays. He says that everything Cody has done was his. Cody has been stealing from him for years. Finn is coming to collect.
