WWE Raw will be hosted by the SAP Center in San Jose, California. The night will mark the final one before the No Mercy PPV. So, the final hype ups of one of the biggest night of the year will be made during this week’s edition of the flagship show.
Till now, we know that there will be one main event match on the show featuring two women competitors. It will be two of the former best friends who will collide before the big fatal-4-way match on this Sunday. The women’s champion, Alexa Bliss will square off against Nia Jax in the big matchup.
Apart from this one, we might see two more big matches on WWE Raw, tonight. Finn Balor is supposed to go one-on-one against Bray Wyatt. Plus, Roman Reigns and his nemesis, Braum Strowman is likely to lock horns yet again in a grudge match. The local advertisements from the venue are suggesting the same.
It is to be noted that all of these participants are booked in individual matches for the No Mercy PPV. But, Strowman’s opponent Brock Lesnar is not being advertised to be present on the show. Also, Reigns’ opponent John Cena is to stay away from WWE Raw since he is touring with the Smackdown roster in China and scheduled for a live event.
So, WWE might just want to square these two bitter rivals off to give them a chance to pick up some momentum before the No Mercy PPV. However, both the matches have not been confirmed by WWE’s official website or the social media handles, till now.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter suggested low ticket sales for this San Jose edition of Monday Night Raw due to lack of star power. So, the creative might just plan to announce these two matches to pull up the ratings.
However, Wyatt and Balor have already been booked in a match at No Mercy. Plus, Reigns and Strowman had uncountable matches, till date which is supposed to make things quite repetitive. So, the officials might just plan to hold one of these bouts in a dark segment following the televised show. In that case, only the fans in attendance will be able to witness it.
