Back on Dec. 16 WWE opted to pre-tape the Dec. 23 episode of Monday Night Raw in order to give the wrestlers and production team a few days off for the holiday season. The results from said taping will air in Raw's normal time slot on Monday night on the USA Network, and feature a United States Championship match between Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins as the main. The show will also continue the fallout from the TLC pay-per-view, as well as start building towards the first pay-per-view of 2020, Royal Rumble.

Rollins turned heel a few weeks back by aligning himself with the Authors of Pain and attacking Owens. Since then he's cut a couple of promos on the crowd explaining his actions.
"What do you want from me?" Rollins said back on Dec. 10. "I've been asking myself that for a long time because, you see, you and I, we used to get along. We used to see things eye-to-eye. And then somewhere along the way it all went wrong and I am trying to figure out why. Why? I did everything right. I don't take nights off, I fight through injuries. Every single time I step through that curtain and I get in that ring, I lay it all on the line for each and every one of you.
"I stick my neck out for you guys," he added. "And not just in the ring, but in the media too. And what do I get? What do I get? I get spit on, I get disrespected and I'm sick of it. I came out here last week and told Kevin Owens, I told you guys, I had nothing to do with the AOP and that was the truth. But the truth, the truth isn't good enough for you. You called me a liar, and why? Because some blithering idiot that you worship named Kevin Owens, some flavor of the month Kevin Owens, who couldn't lace my boots Kevin Owens, called me a liar. And you jumped on that bandwagon."
