There will be two women’s triple-threat matches taking place on the December 5th edition of WWE Monday Night Raw leading to an eventual championship match.
It was announced by WWE that there will be two women’s triple threat matches taking place on Monday Night Raw to try to decide who should get a title shot in the future. Tonight’s episode of Raw takes place in Washington, DC.
The two triple threat matches are:
* Bayley vs. Asuka vs. Rhea Ripley
* Nikki Cross vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch
The winners of both of those triple threat matches will face off next week with the winner of that match earning a future Raw Women’s Title match against Bianca Belair.
In addition to the two women’s triple threat matches, Raw will also see The Usos defending the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles against Matt Riddle & Elias. WWE also announced that John Bradshaw Layfield will be hosting a poker tournament, which should see several WWE stars featured in vignettes playing poker.
This week’s Raw will follow what happened last week on November 28th when Kevin Owens beat Jey Uso in the main event while Dexter Lumis beat The Miz to earn a full-time WWE contract. Becky Lynch also got into a fight with Bayley’s Damage CTRL, so perhaps will be building to those two women winning the triple threat matches to set up a singles match next week.
