Welcome to another edition of Monday Night Raw, for the final time in August 2017!
Tonight’s Raw is to be headlined by a huge Women’s Championship rematch. Alexa Bliss invoked her rematch clause last week and tonight she gets the opportunity to win back her title from Sasha Banks. It’s hard to imagine that Bliss doesn’t have a plan in-store and that she will pull some trick. Maybe Nia Jax will play a key role in the match, thus leading to a Triple Threat at No Mercy. Regardless, Sasha Banks will have to be on guard if she hopes to walk out of tonight’s Raw with her Championship.
Elsewhere on the show, WWE.Com is teasing continued tensions between Roman Reigns and John Cena. The 16X WWE Champion returned to Raw last week and immediately called out Roman Reigns in a really cool segment. The two barely had time to talk, or throw hands, when they were interrupted by The Miz and Samoa Joe. This led to a completely forgettable main event but the possibility of a feud between Cena and Reigns, or Cena and Joe is enough to get this writer salivating. Personally I think it makes more sense to save Cena Vs. Reigns for WrestleMania but WWE tend to pull the trigger too soon on idea’s like these, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the two tangle at No Mercy.
On last week’s Raw, Jason Jordan audaciously challenged Finn Balor to a match to prove himself. Rather unsurprisingly, Jordan lost the match but put in a good effort nonetheless – you might not even have noticed though because the Brooklyn crowd took it upon themselves to ignore the match and play with a beech ball. Thankfully beech balls have been banned from WWE events moving forward. I imagine Jordan will continue to try and prove himself but he keeps losing and I hope he starts cheating to win, thus turning heel and pulling Angle into a tricky situation.
There’s loads more happening on tonight’s Raw, with Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose, The Miz, Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, etc. Remember to join in the conversation on our awesome app: Ringside Talk. Enjoy the show!
