WWE Raw Preview (26/09/22): Seth Rollins-Rey Mysterio; Matt Riddle-Damian Priest 1

Matt Riddle vs. Seth Rollins in a Fight Pit match is all set to go down at the Extreme Rules premium live event on October 8. The rivalry between the two continued, last week when Riddle cost Rollin his United States Title match opportunity against the champion Bobby Lashley in the opening segment of WWE Raw. Due to Riddle’s distraction, Lashley prevailed in the title match with a Spear.

Later that night, Riddle teamed up with Rey Mysterio to compete against Judgment Day’s Damian Priest and Finn Balor when Rollins appeared at ringside to provide the distraction. Riddle got busy with his current rival as Rey got double-teamed by the heel faction and digested the pinfall loss.

Moving on, the storyline continues on WWE Raw when Rollins squares off against Mysterio in a match that will renew a bitter feud from a couple of years ago. These two used to be a nemesis to each other during WWE’s PC era. At one point, they even squared off in an eye-for-an-eye match back at Extreme Rules 2022 PPV.

As for Riddle, he goes up against Damian Priest in a capacity where the number game won’t be helping, at all. Judgment Day’s Balor, Dominik, and Rhea Ripley would be at ringside, making things hard for The Original Bro to get some momentums in his favor before Extreme Rules.

WWE Raw Preview (26/09/22): Bianca Belair in action

Speaking of the October PLE, WWE Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair has her opponent set at Extreme Rules. A few weeks ago, DAMAGE CTRL leader, Bayley was able to pin her during a six-woman tag team match at WWE Clash At The Castle. Thus, the multi-time former champion secured a title match opportunity, already.

Last week, Bayley picked up a win over Alexa Bliss in the main event of WWE Raw. Then she alongside Dakota Kai and IYO SKY delivered a beatdown at Bliss, Asuka, and Belair. Afterward, Bayley closed out the show by declaring WWE Raw Women’s Title match for Extreme Rules. Tonight, Belair will come for redemption when she goes one-on-one against one-half of the women’s tag team champions, IYO SKY.

Kevin Owens and Johnny Gargano have been teasing to form an unlikely alliance on WWE Raw since the latter made his big return to WWE TV about a month ago. After Owens threw some praises to Gargano, the former NXT North American Champion helped Owens defeat Austin Theory by causing outside interference.

After this, it was confirmed that Owens and Gargano will reunite in a match against Alpha Academy’s Otis and Chad Gable on WWE Raw. For those who don’t know, Owens and Gargano did function as a tag team in the indie circuit with the name of Panda Express long before they joined WWE. Now, they will reunite in Owens’ home country, hoping to create some more great memories.
