Monday Night Raw Recap – January 29, 2024

The Judgment Day Clubhouse

The Judgment Day is watching backstage. WWE Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley says if Bayley chooses her at WrestleMania, then it’s her funeral. Ripley will remind her who she is. Tonight is about sending a message, a message that wasn’t sent at the Royal Rumble. Damian Priest says they’re done with distractions. Finn Bálor says everyone is getting too comfortable challenging the Judgment Day. Tonight, they’ll show the world how vicious they are. Bálor and Priest walk off.

Later on…

Bayley is in the ring with WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The Kabuki Warriors, WWE Women’s Champion IYO SKY, and Dakota Kai. Together, they all make up Damage CTRL. Bayley says she’ll let the people take a picture of them in the ring. When was the last time the Women’s Tag Team Champions, the Women’s Champion, and the Royal Rumble were all in the ring together? It’s never been done before. This is history, all because of Bayley. Everyone thought Bayley was done, that she wasn’t as good coming back from injury… she might not have been on the poster, but she is a winner. Bayley won against the most stacked women’s roster they’ve had. She also beat Rhea Ripley’s record and lasted 63 minutes and 3 seconds.

Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley comes out to the stage. Ripley says the only reason Bayley beat her time in the Royal Rumble is because she wasn’t in the match. The rest of Damage CTRL has gold. If Bayley chooses her for WrestleMania, it will remain that way. All of a sudden, Nia Jax attacks Bayley from behind. Jax fights Ripley into the ring and hits her with a leg drop. Jax drops two more leg drops before hitting her with an Annilator! Jax approaches Bayley, who cowers in the corner. Jax tells Bayley to pick Iyo because Ripley is not making it to WrestleMania. Bayley sheepishly says she’ll make her decision this Friday.
