Chicago, Dec 27: WWE Raw came live last night from the All-State arena in Chicago, Illinois. This marked the last episode of the year 2016.

The arena went straight to chant CM Punk’s name not allowing Stephanie to talk. So, in turn, she insulted them by mentioning Punk’s loss at UFC debut in just 2 minutes and 15 seconds. Seth Rollins came out to interrupt her. He went on to insult her for protecting his husband, Triple H.
Roman Reigns joined them demanding actions from last week’s attack by Braun Strowman. So, Stephanie announced a match between Rollins and Strowman, later the night. Plus, Reigns will be facing a choice of her opponent.
Charlotte and Bayley had a confrontation in the middle of the ring where Bayley claimed that she has become the number one contender.
