WWE Raw preview (26/08/19): Rollins-Strowman celebration, King of the Ring, Bayley-Cross
WWE returns to the city famous for celebration to host the next edition of WWE Raw. The next PPV event in WWE programming will be Clash of Champions, next month that would be the sole focus for the show. WWE has taken a slow step to building up the angles which is why we did not get any official matches from the flagship show of the WWE.
But tonight, we expect the main event to get official as the Universal Champion and his potential next contender will be in a celebration. The King of the Ring tournament will also continue bringing some incredible actions in the already announced couple of matches for the show. Also, the Smackdown women’s champion will be in attendance for the show for a match that takes place at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Reports still claim that Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman are on a collision course on WWE Raw heading into Clash of Champions PPV event. It is likely that the monster among men will challenge the Architect for the red-strapped belt for the first title defense. But in a surprising way, these two have become new tag champs on the red brand.
So, as of now, WWE.com confirmed that these two will throw a celebration in New Orleans for the shocking title win,
“Although Braun Strowman clearly has his eyes locked on Seth Rollins’ Universal Championship, The Monster Among Men and The Beastslayer proved to be a strong team this past Monday night on Raw, conquering Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to become Raw Tag Team Champions despite the attempted intervention of United States Champion AJ Styles.
What’s next for this strange-but-successful pairing, and how will The O.C. respond to their defeat?”
We predict the get together will not go down well since Strowman has been targeting the championship for a few weeks, now. Despite being tag champs, he will do something to get a shot at the title at the next PPV event. Even the OCs could interfere to cause a miscommunication between Rollins and Strowman.
The King of the Ring tournament continues with on WWE Raw as we have two officials matches from the first round. After Ricochet’s successful team-up with The Miz against Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin, they are gearing up for solo matches. Ricochet will have to ho one-on-one against McIntyre. WWE’s superhero is not the favorite to win this one since he is up against the Scottish Psychopath.

In the other match on WWE Raw, Baron Corbin will get a chance to add the King moniker to his hat as he competes in the King of the Ring tournament. But the problem is that the veteran Miz is standing against him. If WWE continues to use Miz as a jobber then Corbin will win this bout and advance to the second round.

In an interesting turn of events, WWE Raw will have the Smackdown women’s champion in attendance. Bayley will be present on the show continuing her rivalry against Miss Bliss and her buddy Nikki Cross. As for tonight, the latter one will be her opponent in a singles match. It will be interesting to see who among them picks up the win and keeps their momentum intact during this. Will Bliss in her corner, Cross could pick up a big win by pinning the champion from the blue brand.
Plus, there must be a fallout in the Raw women’s championship scene after what has been happening for the past few weeks. Sasha Banks returned after Summerslam to lay down Natalya and Becky Lynch with steel chair shots. The attack continued even last week where Sasha pounced on an already injured Nattie for a second time. With this mean side in full display, Sasha Banks has been irresistible, as of late. Will Becky be able to bring the fight back against the returnee or she continues to dominate? We will find out when WWE Raw airs tonight from the home of Wrestlemania 34.
