WWE had a great showing with the Clash at the Castle premium live event. With critical and commercial success, the company should be proud. Now, the build to Extreme Rules will start tonight.
According to Sean Sapp behind Fightful’s paywall, there are early plans for tonight’s episode of Raw coming from Kansas City. The plans are newsworthy involving Bobby Lashley’s next United States title defense, The New Day returning for a challenge to the tag titles, Dexter Lumius lurking around again, and the possibility of Braun Strowman returning to WWE TV.
Tonight’s WWE Raw is from Kansas City, and we’ve learned some of the early plans.
As announced, Bobby Lashley is set to defend the United States Title in a cage match. We’re told this is a part of Triple H’s ongoing plan to help establish the United States Title as a credible prize on the program.
New Day are scheduled for the show, as they’ll be involved in a program surrounding the world tag team titles. The Usos weren’t able to travel overseas for Clash at the Castle.
Rumors of Braun Strowman returning have emerged after Fightful Select reported that there was interest in bringing him back to the company. There is set to be an angle that features a car turned over on the show. While not confirmed, this is in line with a lot of the programs Braun Strowman was featured in the past.
Dexter Lumis’ angle will also continue tonight.
The fallout of Clash at the Castle should be an eye-opener to start the build to Extreme Rules. Hopefully, enough people will turn in due to the holiday weekend!
