Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of Monday Night Raw! Tonight’s show is all about the fallout of WWE’s Super Showdown in Melbourne, Australia. Hell, a number of the matches tonight are rematches from Saturday morning’s show, so don’t expect tonight’s Raw to be anything extraordinary.
The big news is, Triple H and Shawn Michaels will be on the show tonight to discuss what happened after The Game beat The Undertaker. The match itself was fine, certainly the best The Undertaker has had in some years, but does anyone really want to see it all happen? I mean, who wants to see Shawn Michaels break his retirement vow to come back and face The Undertaker and Kane? It reeks of desperation but hey, that’s just my opinion. And I love HBK. That said, the DX members will talk about the attack they suffered at the hands of the Brothers of Destruction, which will lead us to their tag team match, either at Survivor Series or The Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia.
Also returning to tonight’s show, is Trish Stratus. A Hall of Famer who is coming back in a smart and worthwhile fashion. Stratus will face Alexa Bliss later this month at WWE Evolution is one of the marquee matches, and hopefully she will put Bliss over. So the former Women’s Champion returns tonight to start the feud full throttle, and add some more depth to it beyond mere surface-level intrigue.
Elsewhere on tonight’s show, The Riott Squad again faces Ronda Rousey and the Bella twins, and maybe tonight Nikki will finally turn on Ronda. Also, Braun Strowman and his dogs will face The Shield again, because why not? And there will probably be appearances from Finn Balor, Baron Corbin, Chad Gable and Bobby Roode, and a performance by Elias in which he criticises John Cena before being interrupted by Bobby Lashley.
That’s the preview of tonight’s show! Remember to download the Ringside News app, follow us on Instagram, and enjoy the show!
