WWE Raw (Episode 1,441)
Live from Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida
Aired on January 4, 2021 on USA Network
Raw began with a shot of Hulk Hogan’s phone cover. Hogan finally picked up the phone and delivered his “what’s going on” line … Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, Samoa Joe explained, and Mike Roam was the ring announcer …
Miz and John Morrison stood in the ring of the MizTV segment. Morrison looked up a list of legends that appeared during some spoofing, and then included Mizu as a legend. Mizu showed off his money in a bank briefcase and said he was optimistic about the New Year now that WWE has returned the deal to him.
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were introduced as guests. The broadcast team sneaked a Big E plug to the Apollo crew on Friday’s SmackDown to protect the intercontinental title. Kingston said that when he entered the ring, he had his own talk show called New Day Talk. Kingston said he was the host and Woods was the bandleader for their show.
Mizu wondered if it was a preparatory work for the Woods bombing on the G4. Woods showed off his badge while Kingston said he was also a court official. Kingston read the card and asked if Ms and Morrison had a solution. Ms. was frustrated, but Morrison gave some ridiculous solutions.
Kingston asked them which legend they would like to go out for dinner with. Mizu said the interview lasted long enough. Woods played the trombone. Kingston said it meant it was time for the culinary part of the show. Woods is wearing a chef’s hat. Mizu was angry and said he was fed up with them joking from his show.
Teddy Long made his entrance and made fun of Mizu and Morrison’s appointments with the Undertaker. Adam Pearce came out and talked to Long, who then booked a tag team match between Kingston and Woods vs. Mizu and Morrison … [C]
Powell’s point of view: The mission was accomplished if the goal was to start the New Year in the most troublesome way possible.
1. Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods vs. The Miz and John Morrison. The New Day duo dominated the attack. Kingston jumped over the top rope into Mizu and Morrison, and Woods played the trombone for a break. [C]
