WWE Raw Preview (27/08/18) – Reigns-Strowman Face-Off, The Shield, Hell In A Cell Buildup
Post-Summerslam edition of WWE Raw has been a great experience for the fans. Brooklyn came up with a solid episode that witnessed the return of The Shield. They attacked Braun Strowman in order to ruin his opportunity to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase. This moment gave the fans goosebumps to the fans and increased the TV ratings, as well.
Well, The Shield has received a target in their back in the process, fresh-off their reunion. A monster would be waiting for them when WWE Raw comes live. Plus, the buildup towards the Hell in a Cell PPV will be the focus of the show. Tonight’s show will take place from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
WWE Universe could barely forget the closing moments from last week’s WWE Raw. The Shield downed The Monster Among Men to give us a pleasant experience in the cost of the Money in the Bank briefcase cash-in. Strowman is seething about it and challenge Roman Reigns for a face-off on the show. He invited The Big Dog to show up on his own.
This segment should be the headliner for this week’s WWE Raw to set up the Hell in a Cell PPV main event match. The host arena of the PPV has updated the main event match to Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman. Hence, the authority should confirm this match for the upcoming PPV event. The question remains though whether The Shield will remain in Reigns’ corner or not.
Another match is likely to take place at the upcoming PPV event for the WWE Raw women’s championship. Alexa Bliss deserves a title rematch and it should take place at the Hell in a Cell PPV. However, she is feigning an injury from a storyline perspective. Hence it’s doubtful whether she would try to take advantage of this match at the earliest especially when Ronda Rousey would be her opponent.
Speaking of Ronda Rousey brings us to last week’s WWE Raw. She dared to put the arm-bar on Stephanie McMahon to injure it. Well, there should be consequences for her actions. Kurt Angle will not be present on the show since Stephanie gave sent him on vacation. But an acting general manager would be there ensuring that Ronda learns a lesson.
Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins will continue to get along together to keep the current feud going on against Ziggler and McIntyre. Current advertisements suggest that a tag team match will take place between these two factions at Hell in a Cell PPV. So this stretched feud should continue on WWE Raw. Meanwhile, Ambrose should get an IC title shot after pinning Ziggler, last week.
The Revival has earned two consecutive singles over the two members of Team-B. This automatically makes the heel team contenders for the WWE Raw tag team championship. So there should be an announcement regarding the future of this title.
