WWE Raw Preview (08/07/19)-Rollins-Lynch vs. Andrade-Vega, Roman Reigns, Extreme Rules
WWE Raw has begun to come up with compact episodes for the last couple of weeks. With the inclusion of Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman into the scene, we expect some big changes coming ahead in the summer. But for now, the storylines will progress towards the one night of the year where everything remains extreme. We will be getting a preview of what to expect courtesy of dual main event on tonight’s episode of WWE Raw.
Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch team up for a second straight week on WWE Raw to compete against the team of Andrade and Zelina Vega. In the other marquee match, Roman Reigns teams up with an unknown person against his Extreme Rules opponents. Also, there must be a major fallout from the AJ Styles’ heel-turn that shocked the world, last week. All of these and more will be waiting for us when the flagship show returns at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
The flagship show continues to become interesting with mixed tag team actions occurring on a regular basis. Last week, Mike and Maria Kanellis took the spotlight by competing in a match against a real-life couple. This week, the champions face two wild-card entrants on WWE Raw in the form of Andrade and Zelina Vega, as confirmed by WWE.com,
“One week after Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch picked up a quick victory over Mike and Maria Kanellis on Raw – a bout that also included an astonishing surprise pregnancy announcement from Maria – the Universal Champion and Raw Women’s Champion will battle Andrade and Zelina Vega on the final Raw before their Winners Take All Extreme Rules Mixed Tag Team Match with Baron Corbin & Lacey Evans at WWE Extreme Rules, as first reported by Sports Illustrated.”
As first reported by @SInow, @WWERollins & @BeckyLynchWWE will take on @AndradeCienWWE & @Zelina_VegaWWE in a Mixed Tag Team Match AND @shanemcmahon & @DMcIntyreWWE will take on @WWERomanReigns & a partner of McMahon's choosing THIS MONDAY on #RAW!https://t.co/1RLugbtgWq

WWE Raw women’s and Universal Champions prevailed during Stomping Grounds by stopping their current rivals from winning championships. Now at Extreme Rules, Corbin and Evans looked to be in a desperate mood to take away the respective men and women’s division championships. Mind-games should be the key factors here as hinted by Lacey, last week. These two heels are likely to interfere on tonight’s schedules mixed tag match to make a statement for Extreme Rules.
The Undertaker returned on WWE Raw to help The Big Dog from the wrath of Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre, two weeks ago. This set up a dream tag team match at Extreme Rules that should come up major fallouts on tonight. The two heels must be irate about the fact that Roman Reigns received a partner in The Phenome. But they are likely to come up with a counter strategy when they get Roman Reigns, tonight.

The Big Dog was absent on this past week’s episode of WWE Raw. But he enters the scene straight to take care of unfinished business against the two bonafide heels. He will be getting a mystery partner during the match where The Undertaker can’t interfere, at all. Here’s the reason confirmed by WWE.com,
“The Scottish Psychopath and “The Best in the World” turned their tag team battle against The Undertaker and Roman Reigns into a No Holds Barred Match at WWE Extreme Rules next Sunday in Philadelphia. With that showdown looming, Reigns will have to team up with a partner of McMahon’s choosing against “The Best in the World” and McIntyre on Monday’s Raw, as first reported by Sports Illustrated. Plus, if The Undertaker interferes in the match, he’s out of this Sunday’s matchup.”
So, it’s almost certain that Shane and Drew will try to take out Roman Reigns with another beatdown protecting themselves from The Deadman taking advantage of authoritative power.
AJ Styles vs. Ricochet was a dream match on WWE Raw main, last week. At the end of the match, it was Ricochet who stood tall by picking up a clean pinfall win against the challenger and retaining the United States Championship. Thereafter, Styles decided to regroup with his Club brethren turning heel, officially. It’s certain that The Phenomenal One will be on a mission to accomplish the unfinished task against Ricochet and so will be the champion. So they are likely getting a rubber match at Extreme Rules on this Sunday.
As for the other storylines, it will be interesting to see whether Braun Strowman or Bobby Lashley attends WWE Raw, tonight after last week’s stage-breaking incident. Strowman has picked up a kayfabe injury and WWE should keep him off the show, for now. Also, Maria Kanellis has been on the spotlight ever since announcing her pregnancy on WWE Raw. Will she be present on the show alongside husband? Also, what’ll Rey Mysterio has to say once he returns on the show following a shoulder surgery? We’ll find out when WWE returns to the Wrestlemania 35 host city, tonight.
