WWE Raw Preview (13/09/21): Lashley vs. Orton; US Title Open Challenge

Approaching to Extreme Rules PPV event, WWE Raw will present a loaded episode, this week with the headliner being a title match. Bobby Lashley will defend the WWE Title against Randy Orton in a singles contest. The US title will also be on the line when Damian Priest throws an Open Challenge to the roster. Rhea Ripley will face a women’s tag team champion while Charlotte Flair will also be in action on the show set from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will defend against one-half of WWE RAW Tag Team Champions, Randy Orton, tonight. As announced by WWE, last week, RAW was supposed to feature Orton and Riddle defending their tag titles against Lashley and MVP while Orton vs. Lashley for the WWE Title was also announced for the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26.

But then a commercial aired during the bygone episode of SmackDown where Orton vs. Lashley was advertised for WWE RAW. Then WWE has officially announced the WWE Title match on the official website as well as on social media profiles. The match has since been removed from the Extreme Rules card while the PPV graphic remains the same around this match.

WWE issued the following storyline explanation for preponing this mega encounter,

“They don’t want to wait for WWE Extreme Rules. Bobby Lashley will defend his WWE Championship against Randy Orton this Monday on Raw! Raw Tag Team Champion Orton will look to add another title to his collection as he tries to capture his 15th World Championship, while The All-Mighty is out for some serious payback after falling victim to an RKO two weeks in a row. Who will emerge as WWE Champion? Find out on Raw, live this Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network!”

It’s very much possible that Orton vs. Lashley will go down on Raw while WWE will schedule the rematch between the two with an added stipulation at Extreme Rules.

Another title defense has been announced for WWE RAW as United States Champion Damian Priest will host an Open Challenge. This will happen before he defends against Sheamus at Extreme Rules on September 26. Last week, Sheamus earned a clean pinfall victory over Drew McIntyre to become the new number-one contender for the mid-card title.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Natalya vs. Rhea Ripley has also been confirmed for tonight in a singles contest. Last week, the champions, Natalya and Tamina Snuka returned to action against the team of Ripley and Nikki ASH in a non-title match. The newly formed team on Raw picked up the win to become the new number-one contenders for the tag team titles.

WWE RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will also be in action against Shayna Baszler in a singles contest. Last week, Flair retained her title against Baszler’s tag team partner Nia Jax after Baszler provided Jax with a shocking distraction. This seemingly has set up a future feud between Jax and Baszler while Flair is set to put her title on the line at Extreme Rules against Alexa Bliss.

WWE Raw Preview (13/09/21): Lashley vs. Orton; US Title Open Challenge 4

A huge tag team action will go down on WWE Raw when The New Day – Kofi Kingston and Xavier Wood team up with Mansoor and Mustafa Ali against the team of AJ Styles, Omos, T-BAR, and MACE. All these four teams were involved in a tag team turmoil matchup to earn an opportunity to the tag team titles. Lashley and MVP won that bout to get a shot at the titles.

Nia Jax Got Busted Open During This Week’s WWE Raw Episode

Nia Jax inadvertently broke WWE’s PG rules during this week’s WWE RAW that took place at the All-State Arena in Chicago, Illinois. She was seen profusely bleeding from her face which was no less than a crimson mask around. But being a sporting person, she was able to complete the scheduled match although she digested another loss.

WWE RAW featured Nia Jax going up against Rhea Ripley in a singles encounter. This also marked the first time that these two wrestling each other in singles action. There was a point in the match when Jax had Ripley up for a powerbomb, but Ripley slid out and turned that into a takedown.

As spotted in the footage, Nia Jax suffered a cut near her eye on Ripley’s way down to the mat, and immediately started to bleed. The bleeding appeared to be seamless as her face was fully covered with blood as the match was in progression. She continued to bleed for the next several minutes of the match who also waved the referee off to get some assistance from her.

WWE released black-and-white graphic photos from that segment, following that incident. The match ended with Shayna Baszler getting on the apron to distract Ripley. Jax went for a Samoan Drop but this led to Ripley rolling Nia Jax up for the pin to win. The losing superstar wasn’t obviously happy with how things played out.

After the match, Nia Jax and Baszler shared some tense moments inside the ring while Jax continued to bleed from the cut on her face. Baszler stormed out of the ring after having words with her tag team partner. This happened right before Rhea Ripley came back into the ring and superkicked Jax, then slammed her with the Riptide for a pop from the crowd.

Going by the storyline, the team of Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler are on the verge of splitting up. They have already shared some tense moments in the past over dropping the tag team titles to Natalya and Tamina Snuka. Then they lost in rematches to gain back those titles. There also have been some issues with Reginald who is now thrown out of their league.

Alexa Bliss Announced For A Match At WWE Hell In A Cell 2021

Alexa Bliss vs. Shayna Baszler has been made official for this Sunday’s WWE Hell In a Cell 2021 pay-per-view event. The Hell In a Cell go-home edition of RAW saw Alexa Bliss, opening the show, backstage on her swing.

Nia Jax interrupted the segment and told Bliss that Shayna will compete against her in a match at Hell In A Cell 2021. Nia also talked about her and Bliss’ friendship but Bliss denied it, altogether. It was then when Nia challenged her to a match for later in the night.

Alexa Bliss defeated Nia Jax via DQ via Reginald’s interference on Raw. Bliss hit Jax with a DDT before connecting with a Twisted Bliss. But she didn’t get the pinfall count as Reginald pulled her out of the ring. An angry Bliss then hypnotized him. Jax ran towards Alexa to end the hypnosis.

It will be interesting to see what WWE has planned for Bliss vs. Baszler on Sunday and whether the doll Lilly will make another appearance on TV. It was noted on RAW commentary that this match will settle things between Bliss and Baszler. In addition, Bliss also told of putting Lilly in a time-out after what she did to Baszler, last week.

Alexa Bliss also plans to put Reginald in “timeout” after he interfered in her match with Nia Jax on this week’s episode of WWE RAW. The Goddess appeared on RAW Talk in a promo session to address what she plans to do with Reginald.

“Reginald needs to be put in timeout just like Lilly,” Alexa Bliss said. “When you do something wrong, you must be punished. Lilly did something wrong [to Shayna Baszler], and that’s why she’s in timeout.”

When asked “how Lilly was feeling” after being put in a timeout, Bliss said: “To be honest, you can’t really hurt Lilly. But you know some people make mistakes.

“She never liked Shayna but she always loved Reginald due to his Cirque du Soleil background. We always found him entertaining. There are certain people she [Lilly] likes and others she doesn’t.”

WWE Raw: Contract Signing, Battle Royal And More Announced

WWE Raw has announced a Battle Royal and two segments for this coming edition on the USA Network as the builds for Hell in a Cell will continue. In the potential headliner for the show, Drew McIntyre and WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will be signing their contract for a title match at Hell In a Cell on June 20.

While this match has already been made official on last week’s WWE Raw, WWE may announce this Monday that the match will take place inside the Cell structure. This week, Drew McIntyre defeated Kofi Kingston to earn his number-one contender’s spot for the WWE Championship and now he will be seen in his third consecutive title shot in three back-to-back PPV events.

WWE Raw will also feature a five-team Battle Royal on the show. The winners of this match will become the new number-one contenders to RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos. Perhaps, the title match will go down at the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view.

The five teams for the Battle Royal are The Viking Raiders (Ivar, Erik), The New Day (Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods), Lucha House Party (Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik), T-BAR and MACE, and team RK-Bro (Riddle, Randy Orton). This week, Styles and Omos successfully defended WWE Raw tag team titles against Jaxson Ryker and Elias after the latter one opted to walk out of the match, surprising his tag team partner.

Lastly, Monday’s WWE RAW will also see the progression of a new storyline between Alexa Bliss, Lilly, and Shayna Baszler. WWE has now confirmed that Baszler will confront Bliss and Lilly on “Alexa’s Playground”, this upcoming episode.

Shayna Baszler lost a singles match to Reginald after another mysterious explosion came from the ring post when Baszler had the Kirifuda Clutch applied for the finish. Reginald took advantage of the explosion and rolled up Baszler for the pin to win.

Bliss later invited Reginald on Alexa’s Playground, a segment that was interrupted by Baszler who beat Reginald down and had some strong words for Bliss. As Baszler believes that Bliss is the one behind the explosion, she needs some answers from the former Raw Women’s Champion. It should be mentioned that such explosions have also cost Baszler and Nia Jax their Women’s tag team title matches in recent weeks.

WWE Star Sasha Banks Wants To Produce An All-Women Show

Sasha Banks is unarguably one of the pivotal figures behind WWE starting the Women’s Evolution, a few years back. Besides putting over her contemporaries in an unselfish manner, she continued to rack up some golds for her own. As a result, the Golden Standard became the top wrestler of last year. Now she wants to do more for female wrestling other than just competing inside the squared circle.

A few days ago, Sasha Banks revealed that she had the vision to produce and promote an all-women pro wrestling show. The tweet from the WWE SmackDown Superstar stated the following,
“Had a vision of producing and promoting an all women’s pro wrestling show.”

Instead of praise, the tweet was met with a lot of criticism from fans and female independent wrestlers. They were quick to point out that all-women shows such as Shimmer Women Athletes and Shine Wrestling already exist in the professional wrestling circuit. While Sasha Banks stayed quiet in the matter, she had one of her colleagues defend her opinion.

Update On Sheamus Suffering Broken Nose On WWE Raw

Shayna Baszler reacted to Sasha Banks’ tweet

Former one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler tweeted out which appeared to be an indirect way to support the six-time women’s champion,

“Had a dream about writing a book one day!”
“cAn’T wE JuSt aPPr3CiAtE tHe bOOkS tHaT aRe wRiTTen aLrEaDy?!?”

As you can see, Baszler never namedropped Sasha Banks in the tweet while she perhaps just wanted to hint that there’s still room for more all-women shows.

Former WWE Superstar Mickie James also reminded The Boss that she pitched a similar idea to WWE. Following her WWE release in April, James said on GAW TV,

“[I pitched WWE] a concept like this [GAW TV] with all women. Like who you wear, what you drinking, what’s going on in the fashion world? What’s going on in pop culture? And I may as been talking to my dog. I legit had three heads going ‘Uh’ and it was even for ideas I pitched where I wasn’t the star.”

Only time will tell whether Sasha Banks will be able to achieve this dream of her. For the time being, she is absent from WWE TV since the post-Wrestlemania episode of Smackdown. Recent advertisements indicate that she could be back on the blue brand once fans are back on the shows from July 16.

WWE Raw Preview (31/05/21): McIntyre vs Kingston; Intergender Match; Miz TV

This week’s WWE Raw will be coming with high stakes attached to the main event match where we are bound to learn the new number-one contender for the WWE Championship. An Intergender Match is set to make things interesting while a former WWE Champion makes his return when the show airs, live from the Yuengling Center in Tampa, Florida.

For the past couple of weeks, there’s been a debate on who should be the next man to challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title. While Drew McIntyre claims he never received a one-on-one rematch for the title, Kofi Kingston earned a pinfall win over the All-Mighty Champion, a couple of weeks ago. Via this win, he believes to be the legit front-runner in the race.

John Cena Reportedly Competing In Mega WWE SummerSlam 2021 Match

Both these men wanted to prove a point and thus it had to lead to a mega match. As per WWE’s Official Adam Pearce’s ruling, Kofi Kingston vs. Drew McIntyre will go down on WWE Raw with the winner becoming the new number-one contender to challenge WWE Champion Bobby Lashley at Hell In a Cell. Additionally, if Lashley or MVP tries to interfere, they will be suspended for 30 days without pay.

WWE Raw Preview (31/05/21): McIntyre vs Kingston; Intergender Match; Miz TV 87

It has been announced that The Miz will return during this Monday’s Memorial Day edition of WWE RAW on the USA Network. The former WWE Champion and John Morrison are set to host another must-see edition of MizTV where their guests will be RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair to promote their upcoming match at WWE Hell In a Cell.

It should be noted that WWE Raw marks The Miz’s first appearance since he was eaten [kayfabe] by zombies at the WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view, after losing the Zombies Lumberjack Match to Damian Priest. The A-Lister reportedly suffered a torn ACL during that match. After the match, reports were out that he could be out of in-ring action for around 7-9 months due to an injury that is yet to be confirmed.

While we expect to receive an update on the Hollywood A-Lister’s condition, he will definitely try to stir things up for the WWE Women’s Title picture. The future match is booked between Ripley and Flair but it’s not confirmed whether the match will take place inside the Cell structure or not. Perhaps, we will get to learn about the same on WWE Raw.

WWE Raw Preview (31/05/21): McIntyre vs Kingston; Intergender Match; Miz TV 88

Also announced for WWE Raw, Xavier Woods will compete against Randy Orton as the feud between The New Day and R-K-Bro continues. Woods lost a match to Riddle who used Orton’s finisher RKO to get the pinfall win. Now, it’ll be Orton to take on Woods and perhaps hit an original RKO on the one-half of the New Day member.

WWE RAW Tag Team Champions AJ Styles and Omos will defend their championships against Elias and Jaxson Ryker in a match that WWE is billing as a perfect kick-off for the “Tag Team Week.” A cheap shot from Elias allowed Ryker to pick up a clean pinfall win over Styles, last week that has set up this tag title match.

WWE Raw Preview (31/05/21): McIntyre vs Kingston; Intergender Match; Miz TV 90

An Intergender Match has also been confirmed on WWE Raw between Reginald and Shayna Baszler. Since his arrival in the WWE, Reginald had competed in a number of such matches and this would be a repeat. Previously, Sasha Banks defeated him on SmackDown in such an Intergender Match.

Then on last week, Shayna Baszler challenged Reginald at the end of the show following another distraction that led to Baszler and Nia Jax losing the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles Match against Natalya and Tamina Snuka in their second consecutive rematch. Afterward, Alexa Bliss rumoredly took out Reginald with an explosion on the ramp. Now, he will have to face the wrath of The Queen of Spades when WWE Raw goes down from the ThunderDome.

Natalya And Tamina Snuka Become New WWE Women’s Tag Champs On Smackdown

Natalya and Tamina Snuka have become the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions during this week’s SmackDown. The WrestleMania Backlash go-home edition on FOX saw the challengers defeat the champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler in the opening contest to capture the titles. This is the first title reign, together for these two superstars.

The finish of the match witnessed Natalya neutralizing Shayna Baszler by hitting a German Suplex into the barrier, outside the ring. Back in the ring, Jax caught her with a big Samoan Drop but she didn’t realize that Tamina was waiting with her pendant Superfly Splash off the top rope that decided the pinfall win, allowing the straps to change hands.

As mentioned, this is the first title reign for Natalya and Snuka together, their first also, separately. Snuka has also earned her first-ever major title win in WWE if we exclude the 24/7 Title win. Nattie has also become a female wrestler in the WWE who has reigns with WWE Divas Championship, SmackDown Women’s Championship, and Women’s Tag Team Championships.

Jax and Baszler won the titles during the Royal Rumble Kickoff pre-show back on January 31, by defeating Asuka and Charlotte Flair. It was their second title reign that came to an end. Meanwhile, this match has been hyped up even before SmackDown has aired on FOX, as a potential plug-in for the title win for Natalya and Tamina Snuka.

Natalya And Tamina Snuka Become New WWE Women's Tag Champs On Smackdown 104

Natalya received major praise from The Hitman

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart took to Twitter in the afternoon to wish her niece Natalya and her tag partner Snuka to wish them good luck as they were set to compete in the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles Match. The Hitman had a ton of praise for them as he wrote the following,

“I want to wish my niece @natbynatureand her tag team partner @TaminaSnuka the best of luck tonight in their championship match on #SmackDown. They won’t need luck though, because talent can’t be stopped.”

Natalya responded saying, “Means the world. [red hearts emoji] [black heart emoji]”

The Queen of Harts also tweeted her own statement going into the title match,

“To anyone who’s felt like their time would never come, and their work wasn’t enough…We are proof that it’s never too late to chase your dreams as hard as you can. Tonight, we will prove all of this to everyone. #SmackDown #WomensTagTeamChampionship @TaminaSnuka.”

WWE also tweeted some photos of Natalya and Snuka arriving at the Yuengling Center for SmackDown in a Ferrari to hype up the match that ultimately witnessed a title altercation.

WWE Throwback Smackdown: Major Returns; New Title Match Announced

The Throwback SmackDown episode has a couple of surprises and it happened right in the opening segment.
The Usos have reunited on the show after more than a year. The show on FOX saw WWE Universal Champion announce the return of Jimmy Uso. He came out in huge pops from the crowd to celebrate with Reigns, Jey Uso, and Paul Heyman.

The social media also seemed to buzz about the return of Jimmy on Throwback SmackDown where Roman Reigns introduced him after bragging about defeating Daniel Bryan, last week. He sent the former champion packing via the Career vs. Title win. Per the stipulation of that match, Bryan won’t be appearing on the blue brand which may also have ended his WWE career for good.

Wrestlemania Backlash 2021: WWE Universal Title Match Announced

WWE Throwback Smackdown: Major Returns; New Title Match Announced 120

Roman Reigns added that Bryan wouldn’t acknowledge him, so they replaced him with someone who certainly will and that’s the returning Jimmy Uso on Throwback SmackDown. One-half of the Uso Twins has been on the shelf after suffering a knee injury in 2020, at WrestleMania 36 Night One in the Triple Threat Ladder Match with Kofi Kingston and then-SmackDown Tag Team Champion John Morrison.

Previous reports claimed that Jimmy was set to be back within November 2020 and January 2021 after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery. Later Jey stated in an interview in December 2020 that his brother was expected back in the ring during January or February 2021. It was later revealed that his brother was back training at the WWE Performance Center in February but perhaps lack of creative planning pushed back his return to Throwback SmackDown.

Speaking of the old school show, WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long was also a pleasant surprise. During the opening segment, he was the one to announce that Cesaro will earn a WWE Universal Title shot from Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash if he can beat Seth Rollins in the main event of Throwback SmackDown. Long also featured in a backstage segment to mention Sami Zayn will go one-on-one with The Undertaker, which really didn’t happen.

Title match for next week announced on Throwback Smackdown

WWE has also announced the Women’s Tag Team Titles match for next Friday during the Throwback SmackDown on FOX. Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax will defend their Titles against Tamina Snuka and Natalya during the WrestleMania Backlash go-home episode.

WWE Throwback Smackdown: Major Returns; New Title Match Announced 122

Tamina defeated Reginald in singles action via disqualification as Baszler and Jax interfered. The two champs then double-teamed Natalya and Snuka to hype the upcoming contest which would be a rematch from Night Two of WrestleMania 37.

Baszler and Jax retained their titles. But then Natalya defeated Baszler on the April 16 SmackDown, Tamina defeated Jax on April 23, and then Tamina and Natalya won a non-title match over Jax and Baszler on April 30, to get back into the title picture.

Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler Defeated Natalya and Tamina At WrestleMania 37 To Retain WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship

Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Natalya and Tamina for WrestleMania 37  for WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship is another match that is a result of weak booking, or, rather say, it did not have any backstory booking at all. Like most of the matches for this year’s Mania, this match was a victim of the same thing; bad booking. WrestleMania 37 has been a bar fest of awful bookings.

WrestleMania 37 Results – Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Natalya and Tamina

Natalya and Tamina have been built pretty strong lately only for this feud. Right now their gimmicks are more focused on their family background.

WrestleMania 37.Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Natalya and Tamina
WrestleMania 37. Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Natalya and Tamina. Image Credits: Twitter

Even on yesterday’s match, when Natalya insisted Tamina hit the Superfly Splash on Ruby Riott, the intention of WWE became pretty clear at that very moment. They want to add emotions with Natalya and Tamina so that they could be presented as a little acceptable as a team.

It was scheduled as the second match of the night. Honestly, it was an excellent WrestleMania-worthy performance where all four women did pretty well. We did not expect this much of a cool performance.

These women actually were able to please the fans in the arena. Thank you WWE for giving them a good amount of booking. In the end, Shayna Baszler made Natalya submit with the Neck Lock. The match was given a total of 15 minutes of booking.

WrestleMania 37.Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler vs. Natalya and Tamina

In a short amount of time, they could not book this feud well. It was not that they did not have much time, they did have a full month to book something meaningful. But they completely wasted it. For the final verdict, we seriously want Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler should break their team. It is not interesting at all to see.

Shayna Baszler On Her Experience Of Working With Josh Barnett

The current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Shayna Baszler started her wrestling career in the Mixed Martial Arts category. She had a great record in Mixed Martial Arts before she turned her attention to professional wrestling.

Shayna Baszler worked on the independent circuit for two years before she was signed by WWE. She started her career as a participant of the scripted tournament Mae Young Classic where she was pretty impressive. She survived till the finale before she lost to Kairi Sane.

Shayna Baszler On Her Experience Of Working With Josh Barnett

Soon, Baszler made her debut in the NXT. From the very beginning of her career, she was presented as a dominant force because of her background. She won the NXT Women’s Championship twice and she made her main roster debut in February 2020. Currently, she is the Women’s Tag Team Champion along with Nia Jax.

Recently on the Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast Baszler appeared as a guest where she revealed her experience working with the MMA legend Josh Barnett. She said,

Shayna Baszler
Shayna Baszler. Image Credits: Twitter

He didn’t baby anyone. He’s a guy — and you, having met him, will laugh at this — he doesn’t give his compliments easily. He’s not a guy who’s going to tell you, ‘good job’ every day but when he tells you, ‘good job,’ man, you feel good about it.

He’s a hard-ass, for sure. I think just having someone as experienced as him at a time — and it’s still this way, where the sport is very Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu-heavy, he’s the one that opened my eyes to the fact that catch wrestling, pro wrestling, and MMA all had the same shared history. Obviously, with what I’m doing now, it opened an entirely different world to me than the way I had been looking at it before.

She also said that Raw Underground and Bloodsport were pretty similar,

Shayna Baszler
Shayna Baszler. Image Credits: Twitter

Obviously with my [MMA] upbringing and everything with Josh and Billy Robinson, all that is kind of threw that UWFi style. That’s what Bloodsport and Raw Underground [were]. I think the difficult part is, and I’m just speculating I’m not speaking for anyone, but just knowing how I trained for that style of professional wrestling, I don’t think you can grab just any pro wrestler nowadays and just throw them into this and they know how to do it and make it look the way it’s supposed to look.

It started getting to be like what we have anyway. This isn’t like, ‘Oh let’s grab a bunch of MMA fighters and do these worked fights,’ and it’s also not, ‘Let’s grab a bunch of pro wrestlers and have them do these shoot matches, you have to find this balance of people that have been trained a certain way — it’s hard. It’s going to be slow to build up the talent pool but if you do it right, it’s better in the long run.

These MMA-based wrestlers have always received better treatments because of their backgrounds. We hope Shayna Baszler will get better in the upcoming days.
