The RAW 25 event is coming to New York City on January 22. To promote the event, Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and The New Day appeared on Thursday night’s The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
They are all entertainers and Fallon thought it best to have a Lip Sync Battle!
The action started with The New Day who teamed up with Fallon to sing “Motownphilly” by Boyz II Men, and they absolutely nailed it.
The turn came for McMahon and Hunter, and they had to choose between “Seek and Destroy” by Metallica (Triple H’s choice) and “How Far It Goes” from Moana soundtrack. The spinner stopped on the latter, leading to a stunned Triple H.

McMahon took the lead, and being a mother of three daughters; she apparently knew the lyrics well. However, things picked up great pace once the 14-time world champion stepped in to complete the song. The New Day was also shocked to see how well Trip H turned out to be.

After the end of his solo, Fallon entered the scene and declared Hunter and McMahon to be the winners. He also went on to announce that he was going to attend the coming Monday’s special RAW event.
The next week’s RAW event will be simultaneously cast from the Barclays Center and the Manhattan Center in NYC, and it will feature the WWE Superstars from Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live and an impressive list of legendary WWE wrestlers such as “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker and Chris Jericho.
So far the only match that has been declared to be a part of the event is the Roman Reigns defense of his Intercontinental Champion title against The Miz. However, judging by the way he performed on The Tonight Show, we might see another fantastic performance from Triple H.
