It took until late Sunday night, but WWE has finally decided to advertise some matches for Monday’s edition of Raw.
The WWE Championship match at WrestleMania Backlash on May 16 will see Bobby Lashley defending the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match. On Monday’s Raw, Lashley will face one of those men in a singles match. Here’s what WWE.com had to say about it.
Bobby Lashley says he can take down Drew McIntyre or Braun Strowman anytime in a head-to-head situation.
The WWE Champion will get a chance to prove those words right this Monday night on Raw as he collides with either McIntyre or Strowman.
The ever-confident Lashley is two weeks away from putting his title on the line against both men in a massive Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania Backlash on Sunday, May 16, after Strowman earned his way into the bout last week with a win over McIntyre.
Which foe will clash with The All Mighty, and who will earn a major victory ahead of WrestleMania Backlash?
Find out this Monday night on Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network!
TJR Thoughts: My guess is they go with Strowman and the match ends in a DQ rather than somebody getting pinned.
Raw Tag Team Champions AJ Styles & Omos set to defend against New Day in WrestleMania rematch on Raw
The Raw Tag Team Titles will be on the line as well since AJ Styles & Omos are back after missing the last three weeks of Raw. They won the Raw Tag Team Titles from The New Day at WrestleMania three weeks ago, so now The New Day gets a rematch for the titles.
TJR Thoughts: I fully expect Styles and Omos to win in dominant fashion. Anything other than that would surprise me.
Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler to put WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles on the line against Lana & Naomi
The WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles are up for grabs as well with Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler defending their titles against Lana & Naomi. The challengers have had some success against the champions in the past, but not with the titles on the line.
TJR Thoughts: While a win by Naomi & Lana would be fine with me, I think it’s more likely that Natalya & Tamina from Smackdown are the next Women’s Tag Team Champions.
That’s all for now. I’ll be back on Monday night for a WWE Monday Night Raw review.
