WWE reveals rules for fist fight match, contract signing set for Raw


Ahead of tonight's Raw, WWE has revealed the rules for their "first-ever fist fight."

Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe & Big Show will face Seth Rollins & AOP in the fist fight. It was announced via The Wrap today that the match "is no-holds barred, no disqualification, no count outs, no pinfalls and no submissions" and will end "when the referee declares that one team is no longer able to continue."

Big Show made his return last week as Owens & Joe's mystery partner for their six-man tag match against Rollins & AOP. The fist fight was announced for tonight after that match ended in a DQ when Rollins used a steel chair.

The Wrap's article noted that the fist fight will be the main event of tonight's show and that a contract signing with Becky Lynch and Asuka is also set for the third hour. Lynch will defend her Raw Women's Championship against Asuka at the Royal Rumble on January 26.

The Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky is hosting tonight's Raw. Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles, Bobby Lashley vs. Rusev, Aleister Black vs. Buddy Murphy, and an appearance by WWE Champion Brock Lesnar have also been announced for the show.
