The road to WrestleMania 39 continues with talents from RAW and SmackDown looking to cement their place at the biggest show set to take place under the bright lights of Hollywood. Moreover, WWE recently announced a huge street fight for tonight’s edition of Monday Night RAW that can make the picture clear for certain superstars at The Show of Shows.
WWE correspondent Byron Saxton broke the news on Twitter, just hours before the start of Monday Night RAW, about two new matches being added to tonight’s card. The first match announced will see Kevin Owens battling Solo Sikoa in a Street Fight.
The other match Saxton announced in the video was Cody Rhodes squaring off against the captivating and popular superstar from SmackDown LA Knight. The match was made official after a recent back-and-forth on social media.
“🚨 🚨 🚨 BREAKING NEWS: @ByronSaxton has all the details on two MASSIVE matches just announced for tonight’s #WWERaw, including a FIRST TIME EVER Match involving @CodyRhodes 👀 And also @ImChelseaGreen has some more choice words for @ScrapDaddyAP …”
LA Knight expressed his displeasure over being left out of WrestleMania 39. He claimed that a WrestleMania in Los Angeles (LA) cannot take place without the captivating presence of LA Knight.
This led to the WrestleMania main eventer for this year, Cody Rhodes to invite LA Knight to RAW for a match.
