Tonight’s Raw emanates from the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, and the main event see’s Roman Reigns take-on Braun Strowman in a colossal showdown.
On last week’s Raw, Roman Reigns called-out The Undertaker but was greeted by Mr. WrestleMania himself, Shawn Michaels, instead. HBK warned Reigns of naivety and not taking Undertaker seriously, to which Reigns sneered and said he would end the Deadman’s career, just as he had ended Michaels’. Then, as Reigns was leaving, he was steamrolled by Strowman. The monster among men was unhappy about being beaten by Reigns at Fastlane, so he gets another shot tonight. Perhaps The Undertaker will show-up and cost Reigns the match, we are less than two weeks from his potential career-ending match after all.
Elsewhere, the big end of last week’s Raw saw Triple H and Mick Foley exchange blows, which surely leads to Foley’s firing. Maybe Foley will be fired, and humiliated, on tonight’s show, as is the McMahon way. Rollins tried to help Mick last week but got his bad knee re-injured by Triple H for is trouble. This surely puts Rollins completely out of action for WrestleMania but expect the Architect to still show-up.
Also on tonight’s show, Chris Jericho will host the Highlight Reel with a special guest: “the real Kevin Owens”. That’s according to Jericho on last week’s show. What he means by real is anyone’s guess, unless of course Owens won’t actually be on the show and Jericho will show us a series of videos or messages to reveal who Kevin is behind the scenes. The women’s division is also still in a state of flux, with the Triple Threat between Sasha Banks, Charlotte and Bayley, seemingly unfinished with the possible additions of Nia Jax and Dana Brooke.
All that and loads more expected to go-down on tonight’s Raw, a mere two weeks from WrestleMania. WWE still has a few stones to cement into place and more fuel to add to the dizzying array of fires, so we should see some flames tonight!
