First Sermon, No Holds Barred & More Announced For Next WWE Raw
The road to Wrestlemania seems to be heated up with multiple announcements coming at once from WWE to heat up the weekly programming. During last night’s episode of Smackdown, we have received multiple announcements regarding the upcoming edition of WWE Raw that will hype things up ahead of Super Showdown. Two big matches and a ‘sermon was confirmed for the show.
The #MondayNightMessiah is holding his first sermon.

It was announced that WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Seth Rollins will hold a “sermon” during Monday’s this Monday night on the USA Network. WWE mentioned that the former Universal Champion will “preach to the masses” and layout his path to salvation. Here’s the full announcement from WWE.com,
“Come one, come all: The Monday Night Messiah is holding his first sermon.
Hot off the heels of a decisive (if slightly underhanded) Eight-Man Tag Team victory, Seth Rollins will host a “sermon” this Monday on Raw. What, exactly, The Monday Night Messiah will preach to the masses is anybody’s guess, and Rollins is keeping his cards close to the vest on this one. Nevertheless, this Monday, he intends to lay out the path to salvation before us. Who will walk it?”
There’s no update on what potentially a ‘sermon’ could have in-store but Rollins’ current rivals, Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, and The Viking Raiders won’t be far behind when this segment goes down on WWE Raw.
The show slated to happen at the Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett, Washington will also feature a No Holds Barred match between Matt Hardy and Randy Orton. The match was arranged after Orton laid out Hardy with a steel chair shot on the back of the head, on last week’s RAW. Matt was confronting Orton over the latter’s recent attack to WWE Hall of Famer Edge following his Royal Rumble return.
Matt Hardy was supposedly written off WWE Raw via this attack but it seems like the creative team is willing to use him in more appearances before his contract expires. Here’s the official announcement by WWE.com,
“This past Monday on Raw, Randy Orton subjected Matt Hardy to the same brutal Con-Chair-To that sent Edge out of Raw on a stretcher. Now, Hardy is coming for payback.
In the wake of Orton’s heinous attack, the former Raw Tag Team Champion is now slated to battle The Apex Predator in a No Holds Barred Match, placing Orton directly on a collision course with his most recent victim — to say nothing of a Superstar who refuses to take the abuse lying down.”
THIS MONDAY ON #RAW: It's a HANDSOME tag team match as @RusevBUL & @humberto_wwe take on @fightbobby & @AngelGarzaWwe!@LanaWWE & @Zelina_VegaWWE will be watching very closely and hoping the competition gets CRUSHED.https://t.co/rpOB3ySVRR

It was also noted that Liv Morgan and Lana will be watching the match from ringside and rooting for their respective teams.
