WWE Raw Preview (03/06/19): The Undertaker, Stephanie McMahon-Brock Lesnar, Super Showdown
Just four nights prior to Super ShowDown, WWE Raw is coming up with perhaps the most stacked card in 2019. The Wild Card Rule will be in full effect as we expect multiple superstars from Smackdown will be appearing on the show. No prize for guessing who the main-eventer of this night is going to be as Roman Reigns continues to show up. He will be competing in a six-man tag team match with his Wrestlemania 35 opponent still standing against him.
Brock Lesnar has confirmed that he is not only attending WWE Raw but will be in action! He decided to cash-in Money in the Bank briefcase against Seth Rollins on tonight. It means we may get a Universal title match on the show. Plus, The Undertaker returns tonight making a rare appearance on the verge of his battle against Goldberg at Super ShowDown. All of these and more will be waiting for us as WWE Raw emanates from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas.
The situation around Brock Lesnar and Money in the Bank contract has become interesting over the past few weeks. Last week, he was in a fun mood and treated the briefcase like a musical Boombox. He originally attended the show to declare who his cash-in opponent was going to be. But as we have seen, he backed down from doing so and made fun of the champions, rather.

This led to a warning from WWE Raw commissioner, Stephanie McMahon towards Brock Lesnar. She may appear on tonight to address him, live in person. Meanwhile, Paul Heyman noticed this and announced that The Beast will cash-in his contract against Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship. Does this mean that we will see Brock Lesnar in action for the first time in 17 years? WWE.com doubted it too with the following comments,
“There is still some suspense at play here. Heyman did not specify when The Beast would be cashing in, only that it would occur between the hours of 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET, “at a time of [Lesnar’s] choosing.” Still, that doesn’t mean the title is Brock’s for the taking. Rollins is one of the only men to crack the code of defeating Lesnar, and with the champion at least having some specifics to work with, his chances of a repeat are higher than Heyman and Lesnar are likely willing to admit.”
With that being said, we can imagine which kind of mind of state will Seth Rollins be in. He should have focused on his next opponent at Super ShowDown, Baron Corbin. But now, Brock Lesnar is targeting him on tonight over the title. Although The Architect can’t wait to put away the MITB holder with another stomp, number games may catch him up. Could it be costing his title reign? We have to wait until WWE Raw airs, tonight.
Chills run down through the spine of the fans whenever the bells toll and the arena darkens. It will happen, once again as The Undertaker returns to WWE Raw just four days prior to his battle against Goldberg. This marks the beginning of the buildup of this first-time-ever dream match for the WWE Universe. As per the official announcement from WWE’s website, he is likely to cut a promo on his opponent to send a message,
“Just days before his highly anticipated battle with Goldberg at WWE Super ShowDown, The Undertaker will be on Monday Night Raw! Will The Deadman have anything to say as he gets ready to take on one of the most dominant competitors in sports-entertainment history? Find out this Monday night on Raw, live at 8/7 C on USA Network!”

Roman Reigns will also be appearing on WWE Raw using the Wild Card Rule to feature in a six-man tag team match. The Bloodline will be back together as he teams up with The Usos against a strong heel team of Drew McIntyre and The Revival. Will Reigns and his cousins pick up the win to send a message to Shane McMahon prior to Super ShowDown? There’s a big chance that Shane will interfere in the match trying to ruin the momentums for The Big Dog.
Becky Lynch has found a new ally in the form of Nikki Cross for the past couple of weeks. This might bring animosity to Lacey Evans who does not have Charlotte Flair by her corner, anymore. As seen on Smackdown, these two engaged in a brawl throwing apart the mutual respect. Could it cost Lacey a future WWE Raw women’s title opportunity? We have to find it out on the show Rey Mysterio is about to vacate his US title, too. WWE confirmed that his injury will cut short the title reign that did not witness any defenses, at all.
