WWE Raw Preview (28/06/21): Kofi-MVP in a face-off
MVP and Kofi Kingston will come face-to-face on WWE Raw as a follow-up to this past Monday’s edition at Hell In a Cell main event on RAW. In the match, WWE Champion Bobby Lashley defeated Xavier Woods in a non-title affair to set a massive record of winning two back-to-back HIAC matches over a span of just a day.
The post-match angle saw MVP locking himself inside the Cell structure while Lashley delivered a brutal attack on Woods as Kingston was forced to watch the scene from the other side of the fence. Following the incident, WWE is promoting that Kofi will be facing MVP to fire back at him. Meanwhile, he is also scheduled to face Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title at the Money In the Bank pay-per-view on July 18. Hence, he will also try to get some momentums in his corner.
A six-woman tag team action has been announced as Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke will team up with WWE RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley to face Charlotte Flair and WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Natalya and Tamina Snuka. This comes as WWE merges two feuds to run simultaneously.
As seen last week, Flair has officially received a title rematch against Ripley at Money In The Bank PPV event after the champion intentionally disqualified herself from the bygone title match at Hell In A Cell 2021. At the same time, WWE has been building a title match with Brooke and Rose vs. Natalya and Snuka for quite a few weeks now. The two teams have been featured in a couple of backstage brawls while Nattie defeated Mandy at the HIAC PPV event.
WWE RAW will also feature a Strap Match between Elias and Jaxson Ryker to continue their current feud. The former tag team partners have been hammering away at each other for the past several weeks. Last week, during a backstage segment, Ryker announced the match while talking to Mansoor, who approached him looking for some advice. This Strap Match ensures that Elias won’t be able to run away from an ongoing match like the past couple of occasions.
