The latest WWE Network event from Saudi Arabia is live this Thursday, so tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW is a go-home of sorts as some of the RAW roster is set to compete on Thursday.
Here’s what to expect from tonight’s episode live from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, MB.
There hasn’t been much revealed ahead of tonight’s episode. Only two matches have been scheduled, but the WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has been announced to appear ahead of his title defence against Ricochet at Super ShowDown this Thursday. There will undoubtedly be a confrontation between champion and challenger, so it will be interesting to see who goes over ahead of the event on Thursday.
There will also be sparks between Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and her likely WrestleMania 36 challenger Shayna Baszler. Neither wrestler is set to compete on Thursday, as Baszler looks ahead to Elimination Chamber, where is more than certainly booked to win the #1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber match against Asuka, Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan, and Natalya on Sunday 8 March. Last week Lynch and Baszler had a brief confrontation, though it was Baszler mocking the champion via the TitanTron. Will we get another face-to-face clash between the two as Lynch looks to avenge the sneak attack (and bloody bite) from two weeks ago?
After weeks of sneak attacks and run ins, Umberto Carrillo will finally get a chance to take on his cousin Angel Garza in one-on-one action, and Erick Rowan— an announced participant in the Tuwaiq Trophy Gauntlet match this Thursday– will try to exact revenge on the man who Black Massed him into oblivion last week, as he gets a rematch against Aleister Black.
But the real “main event” may be what Randy Orton will do next as he buys time until Edge returns. Will we finally get an explanation? Will we get another Matt Hardy appearance, or will someone else try and step up to “The Viper” as the voices continue speak to him?
It all goes down tonight at 8pm EST live on the USA Network!
