WWE: What to Expect From This Week’s WWE Raw: April 23, 2018

Arindam Paul / 23 April 2018

Tonight's WWE Raw will be the final one before the special show comes live on this upcoming Friday.

The next stop for WWE is the Greatest Royal Rumble event in Saudi Arabia.

This is an additional WWE Network event where the almighty names from the company will be seen performing. So, tonight’s WWE Raw will be the final one before the special show comes live on this upcoming Friday.

Also, the Superstar Shakeup had just passed by, last week. It means several new superstars have joined the roster which will create some new rivalries, going forward.

Plus, Brock Lesnar is resurfacing on the show making it a must-see for the fans. Tonight’s edition will get hosted at the Scottrade Center in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Brock Lesnar was supposed to be on a hiatus after his title defence at Wrestlemania 34. But, he is coming back early from it to promote his next match at Greatest Royal Rumble event. WWE.com has given predictions this evening is going to be a chaotic one,

“Four nights before defending his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns in a Steel Cage Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, Brock Lesnar makes his way to Monday Night Raw. What havoc will The Beast Incarnate unleash during his first live WWE appearance since mauling The Big Dog at WrestleMania?”

There’s no wonder that this face-off between the two marquee names is going to be much physical. But, we are yet to learn that whether Roman Reigns is a hundred percent or not. In South Africa house show, he suffered a head injury. Hopefully, he is okay as expect to learn an update on his condition.

The Intercontinental Championship match has now been converted into a fatal-five-way match featuring Bobby Lashley. Until last week, all the superstars in this IC title match was seen teaming up. But, from tonight, they are likely to tear each other apart to build momentum for the upcoming match.

In the women’s division, Ronda Rousey has built an ally with Natalya. This bond between the two of them will continue for now which might help them from suffering the wrath of Stephanie McMahon which is bound to come, at one point.

On the other hand, Alexa Bliss will continue to quest for her championship rematch against Nia Jax. Meanwhile, the Riott Squad has arrived on WWE Raw to change the complexion. Bayley and Sasha Banks suffered their brutal wrath on WWE Raw, last week.

This might make them becoming friends, once again even if they are in the middle of a rivalry.
