There are three matches that have been advertised for Monday’s edition of WWE Raw. It is not an “In Your Face” Raw like last week, but at least one of the matches is a rematch.
* Drew McIntyre vs. Keith Lee
Last week on Raw, their match ended early when Retribution attacked them. That’s when the Hurt Business foursome showed up, so then McIntyre and Lee recovered with somersault dives onto the Retribution group on the floor. Here’s how WWE.com is previewing this match:
Last Monday, Keith Lee was on the verge of earning a potential WWE Championship opportunity in his battle against Drew McIntyre, until RETRIBUTION made their presence felt. However, The Limitless One’s championship dreams are not dashed. Lee will get another crack at McIntyre this Monday on Raw. If he can defeat the WWE Champion, and Randy Orton is still unable to compete on Sept. 27 at WWE Clash of Champions after being on the receiving end of three Claymores, Lee will challenge for the WWE Title. Will Lee make the most of this golden opportunity?
It’s tough to book and predict because it can go a lot of different ways. I’ll save my prediction for a preview post on Monday.
* Braun Strowman and the undefeated Dabba-Kato clash in Raw Underground
Two big dudes in the Raw Underground backstage set. It should be very physical and interesting to see how they book it.
* Huge Triple Threat Tag Team throwdown to determine Street Profits’ Clash of Champions challengers
I’ll go to WWE’s preview for this one:
Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits’ challengers for WWE Clash of Champions will be determined this Monday on Raw in a major triple threat match, pitting the new tag team of Dominik Mysterio & Humberto Carrillo against Seth Rollins & Murphy and Andrade & Angel Garza. By going after tag team gold with one of his family’s closest allies in Carrillo, Dominik is looking to follow in his father’s footsteps. Rey Mysterio’s first title in WWE was the WWE Tag Team Championship, which he won alongside Edge. Will Dominik move one step closer to his first title in WWE? Will The Monday Night Messiah and his estranged disciple once again prove to be a roadblock for the Mysterios?
And after Zelina Vega ditched them to go after the Raw Women’s Championship and got in a fight themselves, Andrade & Angel Garza are out to prove they’re better on their own. Will they demonstrate that they never needed Vega’s help and earn a rematch with The Street Profits? Find out on Raw, this Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network!
The two heel teams are dysfunctional while Dominik and Humbert haven’t teamed before, so it’s a tough call.
I’ll have more of a preview with predictions on Monday.
Here’s the teaser commercial that aired during Smackdown last night.
