Braun Strowman was not cleared to compete at the WWE TLC pay-per-view but he had help from some of the Raw roster and was able to pin Baron Corbin to get his Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar.
Strowman will face Lesnar at the Royal Rumble next month at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.
Earlier in the night, Carmella and R-Truth won the Mixed Match Challenge so they will enter their respective Royal Rumble matches in the number 30 spot.
As of now, here is what has been announced for the Royal Rumble:
WWE Universal Championship
Brock Lesnar (Champion) vs. Braun Strowman
Women’s Royal Rumble
Announced so far: Carmella
Men’s Royal Rumble
Announced so far: R-Truth
Another match that is likely for the show is Ronda Rousey defending the Raw Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair
