Tonight’s Raw comes on the heels of an exhausting two-week European tour for the WWE roster. While Smackdown has their first post-Wrestlemania PPV this weekend, Raw is still a few weeks away from Extreme Rules in Baltimore.
That all being said, WWE still has a show to put on. Here’s what they have in store and what we’re looking forward to!
Intercontinental Title Match
The Miz is getting his match for Dean Ambrose’s IC title tonight. The A-lister won the opportunity after opponents Finn Balor and Seth Rollins were taken out by respective foes Bray Wyatt and Samoa Joe.
This feud is a retread of one done to death on Smackdown. Expect shenanigans and a dirty Miz victory possibly setting him up for a feud with Roman Reigns.
What’s Next for Roman Reigns?
Reigns’ feud with Braun Strowman appears to be on hold as Strowman is taking time off to deal with an elbow injury.
If Reigns is not getting involved in the IC title picture then he could be moved into a short-term program with either the Bray Wyatt or maybe Samoa Joe. What we do know is that they’re not going to leave Reigns without a story. Braun was doing a good job in this feud and it is a shame he’s out with injury. This also throws the Universal Title scene into confusion, something Sandra is NOT OK with!
For the moment, Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss has an enforcer and new best frenemy, Nia Jax. The pair briefly tagged together in NXT and appear to be friends in the real world. That the Women’s Division is moving beyond the Four Horsewomen is a great sign of the depth of the division. Presumably, Bayley and Sasha will continue to battle the Blissed One.
And All The Rest!
- The Hardys move closer toward DELETION.
- Samoa Joe continues to bully Seth Rollins and his poor knee.
- Rhyno will eat some cheese and crackers.
What are you looking forward to on Raw tonight?
