WWE Raw video highlights: Final Royal Rumble build


Raw's final build to the Royal Rumble took place in Oklahoma City on Monday night.

Ahead of their Raw Women's Championship match on Sunday, Ronda Rousey and Sasha Banks faced off in a tag match. Banks & Bayley defeated Rousey & Natalya when Banks submitted Natalya with the Banks Statement. The show then ended with Rousey and Banks going face-to-face.

Finn Balor, who is challenging for Brock Lesnar's Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble, took on Braun Strowman in what was billed by Vince McMahon as a real-life David vs. Goliath matchup. Balor hit the Coup de Grace on Strowman, but Lesnar interfered and caused a disqualification by giving Balor the F-5.

Before that match, Strowman told Lesnar he's coming for the Universal title after the Royal Rumble.

Elsewhere on Raw, it was announced that Alexa Bliss will be returning for Sunday's women's Rumble match, Seth Rollins faced Drew McIntyre, Heavy Machinery made their Raw in-ring debut, and Curt Hawkins refereed a Tag Team title match between Chad Gable & Bobby Roode and The Revival.
