Two for the price of whatever Monday Night Raw is worth! We’re coming up on Extreme Rules and the card is getting full. There are some spots left to be taken care of though as several stories have been built up on both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live but haven’t been given a place on the pay per view card yet. Two more of those matches have been taken care of.
This week on Monday Night Raw, two more matches were announced for Extreme Rules. First, Bobby Lashley will face Braun Strowman in a Last Man Standing match. The match comes after Strowman drove Lashley through the video screen last week. Second, the Usos announced that they will be facing the Revival for the Raw Tag Team Titles. The two teams have been feuding with each other for several weeks.
It started with a bang. Check out last week’s explosion:
Then there’s this, which didn’t go as well. Check out the hilarity:
Opinion: I’m a bit surprised by the Last Man Standing match as you would have expected Strowman to be gone a little while longer. The Usos vs. the Revival is far from surprising though as the feud has been going on for months now. It might not be the best premise, but at least the Revival has moved away from the pranks and we can do something a little bit better. Maybe we can even get a pair of good matches out of the deal.
Which of these matches sounds better? Who will win each of them? Let us know in the comments below.
