Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of WWE Monday Night Raw!
The WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar, returns to Monday Night Raw for the first time since defeating Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. The Beast must face Reigns again at The Greatest Royal Rumble on Friday, with the title on the line. So, theoretically, Brock and Roman are set to go head-to-head one last time, and that means we’re sure to see them go at it tonight. It seems like the time for Roman to win but hey, WWE sure like to throw a fast one our way.
Elsewhere on tonight’s show, we get the fallout from the Superstar Shake-Up. So while Jeff Hardy took the United States Championship to SmackDown Live, along with The Miz, Samoa Joe, Asuka, The Bar, Gallows & Anderson and more, Raw in turn received The Riott Squad, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, and more. The Shake-Up is always exciting and it should be fun to see what slots these men and women fall into.
On last week’s Raw, Stephanie McMahon overruled Kurt Angle’s decision to not hire Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, and WWE.Com is teasing more of this in-fighting. It seems a matter of time until Kurt is fired as Raw GM. Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy are ready to face The Bar for the tag team titles on Friday and they’re 100% going to win because that’s how the shake-up affected things. Expect them to cruise to an easy-win tonight. All that and lots more on tonight’s Raw. Remember to download the Ringside Talk app and join the conversation. Enjoy the show!
