Match and Segment Announced for Next Week’s “Raw”

A little talking and a lot of punching. Things are picking up on “Monday Night Raw” as we have less than a month to go before “Summerslam 2017”. This week’s show saw the announcement of the Universal Title match with three people challenging Brock Lesnar. At the same time there’s the huge story of Jason Jordan being revealed as Kurt Angle’s son. These two stories will both be advanced next week, which we know in advance.

This week on “Monday Night Raw”, a match and segment were announced for next week. Next time we’ll be seeing the three challengers, Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman, squaring off in a triple threat match and Jordan appearing on MizTV. Lesnar is also scheduled for the show.


Opinion: I definitely prefer this style of storytelling as WWE has spent WAY too long setting things up and then paying them off in one night. Setting things up a week in advance saves you all kinds of time as you don’t have to spend a good chunk of the show getting matches ready. We know the main event and a big segment coming in and therefore nothing needs to be set up for those two parts. Why is that so complicated?

Which of these are you looking forward to more? Who do you think will win the match? Let us know in the comments below.

Who is #1 Contender for Alexa Bliss’ Raw Women’s Title?

There might be no stopping her now. Bayley didn’t have a good start to her summer, getting destroyed by Alexa Bliss twice in a row on pay per view, including in her own hometown. Things have started to turn around for her though and it might culminate in getting back to the top of them mountain.


This week on “Monday Night Raw”, Bayley defeated Sasha Banks to become the new #1 contender to the Raw Women’s Title at “Summerslam 2017”. Bayley will challenge Bliss for the title after defeating her twice in a pair of tag matches, which earned her the spot in the #1 contenders match against Banks.

Opinion: I’m not sure if this is enough redemption for Bayley but at least they’re doing something with her. She’s been beaten down time after time and I’m not sure just a few wins are enough to get her back to the title. The division isn’t the deepest in the world though so success coming this quickly is hardly a stretch.

Do you think Bayley will win the title back? Should anyone else be added to the title match? Let us know in the comments below.

Jim Ross On Natalya’s Battleground Win

– Jim Ross has posted his latest blog entry online and talks about Natalya winning the Fatal Five-Way match at Sunday’s Battleground.

Jim Said:

“Surprised that Nattie won the women’s bout but not displeased,” he wrote. “Many fans are complaining that Charlotte did not win but that was not a concern for me as its simply a matter of getting more talents, in this case Nattie, better ready for higher profile bookings. Charlotte is ‘ready’ whether she won Sunday night or not but Charlotte needs more, viable opponents going forward and Nattie, for one, can certainly fill that void.”

[This post contains video, click to play]


On Sunday, Roman Reigns commented on the cold and quiet in attendance at WWE’s Battleground show, which featured a match between John Cena and Rusev.

Reigns’ tweet didn’t go unnoticed by Cena, and in response, he warned Reigns to not get too far ahead of himself. You can check out their exchange below.

John Cena, who is now a free agent, will likely take on Roman Reigns at next year’s WrestleMania. In fact, WWE made Cena a free agent because they eventually wanted him to do something with Reigns, and a match of that magnitude needs to be on the WrestleMania card.
