WrestleMania 35 is just under a week away and tonight's go-home edition of Raw couldn't be anymore action packed! Check out the preview for tonight's broadcast below.
Can WrestleMania’s main-event Superstars coexist against The Riott Squad?
The journey to the main event of this year’s WrestleMania main event has grown increasingly complicated in recent weeks, and it hits another sharp turn on Monday night when Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey teams with Becky Lynch and new SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair to battle The Riott Squad in a six-woman tag team bout. If Rousey, Lynch or Flair betray either of their teammates, they will be removed from the Raw Women’s Title main event of this year’s Show of Shows.
And, yes, you read that right. The Queen defeated Asuka this past Tuesday night to snare the Women’s Title of Team Blue, meaning that she could very well hold two championships when WrestleMania draws to a close. Of course, that match could change drastically — and lose a participant — on Raw.
With tensions running high, Becky, Ronda and Charlotte will be hard-pressed to work as a team and secure their place in the first-ever Women’s main event of WrestleMania.
Kurt Angle battles Rey Mysterio in his final Raw match
Two Superstars credited with putting SmackDown on the map in the early 2000s will battle it out one last time, strangely enough, on Monday Night Raw as Kurt Angle faces Rey Mysterio in the final Raw match of his farewell tour.
The Olympic Hero and The Ultimate Underdog have mixed it up numerous times in the past — including a memorable clash at SummerSlam 2002 — but their final match together on Raw could eclipse their prior confrontations in terms of sheer emotion.
This will mark Angle’s penultimate match, as he will compete in the ring for one last time against Baron Corbin at WrestleMania. As Angle battles his longtime friend, the bitter Lone Wolf will surely be watching.
Brock Lesnar comes to Raw to extinguish Seth Rollins’ fire
Seth Rollins laid out Paul Heyman this past Monday night, and he didn’t even need to touch him.
After the advocate for Universal Champion Brock Lesnar delivered what he thought was a verbal parting shot to “The Beastslayer,” Rollins stormed up the entrance ramp after Heyman, who fell backward in shock and proceeded to beg for mercy from his client’s WrestleMania challenger. With fire in his eyes and the WWE Universe at his back, Rollins affirmed, “We are going to WrestleMania, we are gonna beat Brock Lesnar, we are gonna take the Universal Title and we are gonna march into Suplex City and we are gonna burn it down!”
How will Lesnar respond to the increasingly emboldened Architect, six nights before their WrestleMania showdown?
Are The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection facing impossible odds at WrestleMania?
WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Bayley & Sasha Banks are warriors, determined to take on any challenger from any brand. But at WrestleMania, The Huggable One and The Boss have agreed to defend their titles against three powerful teams in Nia Jax & Tamina, Beth Phoenix & Natalya and The IIconics.
With “The Samoan Slaughterhouse” and the newly reunited “Divas of Doom” representing imposing physical challenges for The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection, the conniving (and rule-bending) Billie Kay & Peyton Royce represent a psychological obstacle for Bayley & Sasha Banks. After all, no one enjoys getting inside the head or under the skin of their opponents quite like The IIconics.
How are Bayley & Sasha Banks preparing for the Fatal 4-Way Match they’ve brought upon themselves?
Will Roman Reigns attain retribution against Drew McIntyre before WrestleMania?
Roman Reigns’ acceptance of Drew McIntyre’s WrestleMania challenge this past Monday night was met with a savage attack by The Scottish Psychopath, who later battled The Big Dog’s Shield brother Dean Ambrose in a Last Man Standing Match.
Taking particular glee in pummeling The Hounds of Justice, McIntyre dismantled and defeated The Lunatic Fringe, sending a horrific message to his Show of Shows opponent.
How will Reigns respond on the final Raw before WrestleMania?
Batista returns to Raw
Just six days before he makes his in-ring return against his former friend and ally Triple H in a No Holds Barred Match, Batista returns to Raw to respond to The Game. What message will The Animal deliver to Triple H before The Cerebral Assassin puts his career on the line in one of WrestleMania’s most bitter and personal contests?
Can Aleister Black & Ricochet convert their recent success into a Raw Tag Team Championship reign?
Since they began competing on Raw and SmackDown LIVE earlier this year, Aleister Black & Ricochet have been on an absolute tear, drawing accolades from all over the WWE Universe. Their momentum has led to two victories against Raw Tag Team Champions The Revival in recent weeks.
With WrestleMania on the horizon, Black & Ricochet have another huge opportunity to win the Raw Tag Team Titles. The last time The Revival put the titles on the line against Black & Ricochet, Bobby Roode & Chad Gable interfered, leading to a disqualification victory for the pair of NXT standouts, which meant the titles did not change hands. Can Black & Ricochet capitalize on their recent string of success, or will the prospect of losing the coveted titles propel The Revival in showing their opponents why they are “Top Guys?”
Beth Phoenix returns to action in an Eight-Woman Tag Team Match
Ready to battle any and all challengers, The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection are set to defend the Women’s Tag Team Titles against Beth Phoenix & Natalya, Nia Jax & Tamina and The IIconics at WrestleMania.
However, with less than a week before The Show of Shows, Bayley & Sasha Banks will team up with the newly reformed “Divas of Doom” to battle the combined forces of “The Samoan Slaughterhouse” and The IIconics in an Eight-Woman Tag Team Match. Can each respective pair of duos coexist to sway momentum in their favor, or will the impending WreslteMania showdown force the battle into a state of chaos? Find out when Beth Phoenix wrestles her first match on Raw in over six years this Monday night!
