Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's the RAW recap from last night's show. RAW took place this week in New Orleans, Louisiana, the city known for its Jazz music and of course home of the king of all parties, the Mardi Gras. Last week on RAW, we saw Dolph Ziggler, Erick Rowan and Ryback fired by The Authority. Seth Rollins added to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match at Royal Rumble. My boy, Bad News Barrett crowned new WWE Intercontinental Champion. How would RAW fair this week? Let's get to this week's RAW recap.
- Backstage Segment with Stephanie McMahon, Naomi, The Usos and Dean Ambrose: Due to comments made on Smackdown, Stephanie is making Naomi fight with one hand tied behind her back tonight. Stephanie is also making Dean Ambrose get evaluated by a doctor tonight, because he's a threat to everyone. If Ambrose fails, than he's banned from the Royal Rumble.

- In Ring Segment with Big Show: Show talks about his WCW days, competition, job security and says Roman Reigns isn't competition. Says Reigns is the WWE's version of the New York Knicks, Reigns is a loser and so are Reigns' fans. Roman Reigns' music hits and out comes Reigns through the crowd. Show exits as Reigns is in the ring with a mic. Reigns compares Show to Jack and the Beanstalk, basically telling the whole story with Reigns as Jack and him kicking the Giant's (Show) teeth down his throat. Luke Harper arrives looking for a fight and Show directs him to Reigns.
- Backstage, Jimmy Uso and Naomi are upset about Naomi's stipulations later.

Ambrose tells him to sign the papers that approves Ambrose to be in the Royal Rumble and he'll help the doctor get help. The doctor signs the papers, clearing Ambrose for the Royal Rumble.
- In Ring Segment with Rusev and Lana: Lana thanks The Authority for firing Ryback, thanks John Cena for failing earlier tonight and Rusev says Ryback was spineless and deserved to be fired. Dean Ambrose's music hits and Ambrose attacks Rusev to start their match.
