The landscape of WWE Raw changed on last week with multiple returns. The franchise player of the company was back on board in such a crucial moment i.e. on Wrestlemania season. But Batista was the other name back on the flagship show to overshadow that return. This was just the beginning of a storyline that will continue on tonight’s episode.
We will receive an update on the WWE Raw women’s championship. Last week, Ronda Rousey left her belt leaving is in utter confusion. Charlotte Flair will be present on the red brand to claim the title to be named after her. Plus, this is the go-home show for the Fastlane pay-per-view where more matches should become official for the show. All of these should be in-store when this week’s episode airs from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Batista made a shocking comeback on WWE Raw at the expense of Ric Flair’s birthday party. He ruined all the happiness that was in-store for the celebration of the legendary pro-wrestling figure. It was a direct shoutout by the returnee targeting Triple H. As per WWE.com, Triple H will address the situation on tonight,
“Batista provoked The Game once more this past Monday night by crashing Ric Flair’s 70th birthday, attacking “The Nature Boy” in his locker room and dragging Flair-Triple H’s mentor — out into the arena hallway. The Cerebral Assassin rushed backstage to confront The Animal, but Batista had already left the scene. The Game isn’t known for letting transgressions slide, so how will he deal with the actions of his former friend on Raw?”
Spoilers around WWE Raw suggests that Batista will be present on this Philadelphia edition of the show. This might lead to a confrontation between him and the WWE COO taking the storyline forward to Wrestlemania 35. It will be interesting to see whether these two get physical to make things even more intensifying.
Technically, we don’t have any WWE Raw women’s champion in the company. Ronda Rousey chose to walk out with her belt. She desperately wants Becky Lynch to be back on the scene to produce the dream match at Wrestlemania. But the McMahons are still not willing to do so. So what’s waiting next in this storyline? Will the head-honchos finally lift the suspension?
Meanwhile, Charlotte Flair will also be present on WWE Raw to become the champion for the eighth time in her career. She hopes that Mr. McMahon will crown her as the new champion since she is the automatic choice, here. But it is likely that The Boss may announce a match at Fastlane, instead. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair, it should be with the winner getting to face Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania.
Speaking of Fastlane, there should be more matches on the PPV card from WWE Raw. Roman Reigns should be back in action on this event set to take place on this Sunday night. It is going to an eight-man tag team match where The Shield would team up with Braun Strowman to take on against Bobby Lashley, Elias, Baron Corbin, and Drew McIntyre. Or else, only Reigns and Rollins would only team up to take on any three heels among these.
The Intercontinental Championship should also be on the line at Fastlane. Bobby Lashley should receive his rematch for the title against the champion Finn Balor in a one-on-one rematch. Also, the Revival will receive their title defense at Fastlane. It is likely to be a tag team match featuring multiple tag teams. Roode-Gable and the latest NXT imports will receive this title opportunity from WWE Raw.
