It was recently announced and confirmed by WWE that Baron Corbin will be making his announcement tonight on RAW on who The Special Guest Referee will be for his WWE Universal Title Match against WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins at The First-Ever WWE Stomping Grounds PPV Event.
Due to his recent issues with Referee John Cone, Baron Corbin was given the power and privilege to choose who will officiate his WWE Universal Title Match against WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins at The First-Ever WWE Stomping Grounds PPV Event. The issues started last Friday night at WWE Super ShowDown in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia when WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins retained his WWE Universal Title against Baron Corbin and Corbin claimed that he lost due to bad officiating.
There is also a storyline building that sees Seth Rollins having to deal with Mr. Money In The Bank Brock Lesnar as a potential threat to his WWE Universal Title. WWE’s First-Ever Stomping Grounds PPV Event is set to take place this coming Sunday, June 23rd from The Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington.
RAW later on tonight from The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California also features an appearance by one-half of The SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan due to The WWE Wild Card Rule as well as an update on WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth after he was locked and shipped in a production box during last week’s show. Below is WWE’s announcement on Baron Corbin revealing who will be The Special Guest Referee for his WWE Universal Title Match against WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins at The First-Ever WWE Stomping Grounds PPV Event:
Who Will Don The Stripes For Rollins vs. Corbin At WWE Stomping Grounds?
Universal Champion Seth Rollins stood tall last Monday night on RAW after obliterating the main event’s special outside guest official, Sami Zayn, with a steel chair. However, The Beastslayer might not look so triumphant when the dust settles at WWE Stomping Grounds, where he will defend his title against Baron Corbin. Throwing a wrench into the works, The Lone Wolf will choose the Special Guest Referee for his own title opportunity and will reveal his decision on RAW.
Corbin has yet to make his decision, leaving The WWE Universe and The Architect pondering exactly how he’ll tip the scales in his favor. Will Corbin choose Zayn to call the match “down the middle,” based on his work as the outside official this past Monday night, or might Corbin select Rollins’ RAW opponent Kevin Owens, who has also spoken favorably of the former Acting RAW General Manager? Or perhaps Corbin will extend an invitation to “Mr. Money In The Bank” Brock Lesnar to purvey some up-close-and-personal paranoia at WWE Stomping Grounds?
Whatever Corbin announces, you won’t want to miss the fallout.
