Results from Monday Night Raw and Night 1 of Wrestle Kingdom are straight ahead in this update but first…

(STINGER: Ring Of Honor)

Marty Scurll is GONE from Ring Of Honor. The company released a one sentence statement Monday, saying they’ve “mutually decided to part ways”.

Scurll started 2020 under a new multi-year contract with ROH, which included a new role on the booking team.

But a #SpeakingOut accusation over the summer led to Scurll admitting to a sexual encounter with a 16-year-old girl back in 2015.

One other Ring Of Honor note from Monday. The company announced it re-signed Mark Haskins to a new contract.

Night 2 of Wrestle Kingdom going down Tuesday in Tokyo Dome. The final pieces of the card were put in place on Monday.

Kota Ibushi will carry the IWGP Heavyweight and Intercontinental titles into the main event against Jay White.

Hiromu Takahashi will challenge Taiji Ishimori for the Jr. Heavyweight Title.

And the first King of Pro Wrestling 2021 holder will be decided in a 4-way: Bad Luck Fale vs. Chase Owens vs. BUSHI vs. Toru Yano.

We’ll have the Night 2 results in our Wednesday morning update.

Here are the rest of the results from Night 1: The Empire hit a couple speed bumps. Kazuchika Okada beat Will Ospreay..and Hiroshi Tanahashi got past Great-O-Khan.

The Guerrillas Of Destiny stole the “Iron Finger” from Taichi and used it to beat Dangerous Tekkers to win the IWGP heavyweight tag titles for a record SEVENTH time. It’s also GOD’s first-ever win in Tokyo Dome.

KENTA defended his U.S. title “right to challenge” briefcase against Satoshi Kojima. That match was preceded by a pre-recorded message from the current U.S. Champ Jon Moxley.

Let’s get into last night’s Raw.

Drew McIntyre hit the Claymore and pinned Keith Lee to retain his WWE Championship.

And then…. GOLDBERG showed up! He said he wants to challenge McIntyre for the WWE Title at the Royal Rumble. And here was Drew’s answer...

That clip from last night’s Raw.

We have some new Royal Rumble entrants. Charlotte Flair, Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles and Randy Orton all declared.

Speaking of Charlotte, she flipped out on her dad Ric after she and Asuka lost a tag match to Peyton Royce and Lacey Evans. Lacey’s flirting with Ric provided the distraction.

Riddle surprised Lashley with a rollup win in a non-title match against the U.S. champ. Moments earlier, Lashley had forced Riddle to tap to The Hurt Lock, but the ref didn’t see it.

Orton soundly beat Jeff Hardy with an RKO. He also went after Hardy’s earlobes again.
By the way, Orton said he did NOT set Alexa Bliss on fire at the end of last week’s show.

Finally, R-Truth reclaimed the 24/7 title from Angel Garza.
