We may still be reeling from the results of last night’s TLC match, but we’re in a new era, and that means more pay-per-views than anyone can reasonably keep track of. It’s time for the SmackDown roster to reset and prepare for the Royal Rumble, but there’s no rest yet for the superstars of Raw, who have one last stop–a roadblock, if you will–before embarking on the road to WrestleMania.
Raw emanates tonight from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. What has the show got in store? Here are the points WWE is promoting.
The headline story is Sasha Banks (once again) reclaiming the Raw Women’s Championship, and the inevitable rematch that Charlotte Flair will demand. Whether that match will take place on Raw or pay-per-view is yet to be determined.
205 Live had a successful debut last Tuesday which saw Rich Swann capture the Cruiserweight Championship from “the” Brian Kendrick. The remainder of the division will be eager for an opportunity at the title, but none more so than the former champ.
Sami Zayn has some problems with Raw GM Mick Foley, who’s tried to protect the Underdog from Underground from total destruction at the hands of Braun Strowman. Sami, of course, wants no such help, and he’s eager to work past those roadblocks and take on the big man.
Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have had their battles with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens, and it looks like both men have chosen their preferred opponents. Roman wants Universal Champ KO, and Seth wants the man who’s been protecting the champ, Y2J. These feuds won’t come to a head until Roadblock, but we can expect plenty of fireworks tonight.
The show broadcasts as always on the USA Network at 8PM Eastern/7PM Central. Stick around for our live coverage of everything as it happens!
