WWE RAW January 7, 2008 Results

WWE RAW was live from the Mohegan Sun Arena & Casino in Uncasville, CT on January 7, 2008. The entire night was determined by RAW Roulette, which for the uninformed means that there is a wheel (in this case) in the office/locker room of Mr. McMahon, the wheel will be spun and there are a number of different match styles and stipulations for the wheel to randomly land on. Whatever the wheel lands on will be the type of match the competitors will wrestle in. Check the end of this report for descriptions of the matches that took place.
