WWE Raw Preview (04/02/19): Stephanie McMahon-Becky Lynch, Kurt Angle Future, Elimination Chamber
Royal Rumble has just passed by in WWE calendar. But we are on the Road to Wrestlemania where the next stop is almost looming upon us. In two weeks of time, the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view is coming up. Stephanie McMahon calling out Becky Lynch is the headliner of this week’s WWE Raw. We will have the final qualifier from the women’s division for the tag team title match. Sasha Banks and Bayley team up in this against Alicia Fox and Nikki Cross.
The other big anticipation heading into the night will be an appearance from Kurt Angle. The former WWE Raw general manager is coming back on the show to address his future. A Hall of Famer will also be there to square off in a match against Elias. Also, we should find out whether a next title defense is waiting for Ronda Rousey at Elimination Chamber. All of those and more rivalries will be waiting for us on tonight’s episode of WWE’s flagship show. It will emanate from the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon.
Stephanie McMahon invited Becky Lynch on WWE Raw garnering attention from all over the internet wrestling community. The Man is all over the place right now and even the flagship show needs her in order to boost-up of the ratings. We expect the Wrestlemania storyline between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey will get a major shakeup with this appearance of the commissioner of the show. It should be a three-way confrontation where we expect the presence of the women’s champion, as well.
Kurt Angle has been on a losing streak over the past few weeks. He suffered some humiliating losses that put his career in jeopardy. So former general manager of WWE Raw is resurfacing to make some big announcement, as per WWE.com,
“Following Kurt Angle’s crushing loss last week to Baron Corbin — the very man who cost The Olympic Hero his Raw General Manager role — the WWE Hall of Famer will address his future in WWE on Raw. It is unclear at this time just what Angle will be announcing, but you won’t want to miss whatever the four-time WWE Champion has to say.”
Reports are doing round on the internet that these losses are actually setting up a big match for Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania 35. We don’t have any clue about his potential opponent. But tonight’s segment on WWE Raw can give a hint who that is going to be. Also, this would mark the beginning of a new storyline for the Wrestlemania season involving Kurt Angle. Seeing the WWE Hall of Famer back on TV is always a pleasure and tonight should not be an exception.
One of the main events of the night will take place for the final spot of the women’s Elimination Chamber match. The first two teams from WWE Raw has been the team of Nia Jax-Tamina Snuka and Liv Morgan-Sarah Logan. This leaves only one spot from WWE Raw over which Sasha Banks-Bayley will fight against Nikki Cross-Alicia Fox. The team of Boss n Hug Connection is favorite to win the inaugural tag team titles at Elimination Chamber. So they are the confirmed teams to pick up the win in this qualifier.
Last week’s WWE Raw went off the air with Brock Lesnar delivering six straight F-5s to Seth Rollins. We have not heard or seen him ever since that brutal beatdown from the Universal Champion. The question is whether The Architect is regretting his decision of choosing the beast incarnate at Wrestlemania 35. We expect to hear from the 2019 Royal Rumble after what transpired last week.
Braun Strowman suffered a beatdown from Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre. The Monster among Men is not someone to digest such attacks and stay quiet. So the two heels better be careful once WWE Raw airs. Strowman will be on the hunt for them. A match should be there at Elimination Chamber from this rivalry. We would also find out whether Ronda Rousey defends the WWE Raw women’s championship at Elimination Chamber.
Finn Balor will square off in a match on WWE Raw to seek retribution against Bobby Lashley. Last week, the IC champion delivered a beatdown on Balor. He is likely to get those back from the former number one contender for the universal title. Also, Jeff Jarrett will make his appearance on the show, again. This time around, he will lock horns with Elias in a singles contest with Road Dogg by his side.
