WWE is preparing fans for another Saudi Arabia showcase, and their Superstars are also gearing up for the long journey. A few of them have already departed for the controversial kingdom, but they still have enough around for a packed red brand show this week.
WWE is making a few changes to RAW this week, because of their trip to Saudi Arabia. Now we will have to wait and see what they have planned for the rest of the show, but we know two people who will be there.
BWE tweeted out behind their private Twitter account that WWE has a plan for tonight’s opening segment in stone. It was reported that “Cock” will open the show.
A fan asked BWE to clarify, and thankfully, they did. The WWE insider replied: “Cody brock lol.” That might indicate that Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes’ feud has a very interesting shorthand on WWE’s backstage notes.
This is not a huge surprise to see Brock Lesnar in the opening segment. He will historically only wrestle on the first or last match of any card he’s on.
We will have to see how Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes’ encounter in Saudi Arabia pans out. You can check out the betting odds here, and they’re not good for the American Nightmare. Then again, he has defied the odds in the past by losing to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
WWE will also crown a new World Heavyweight Champion at Night of Champions. Only time will tell how they continue that build this week, because Seth Rollins is already not scheduled to be at this week’s show, because he has filming commitments for Captain American: New World Order.
What’s your take on WWE RAW this week? Will the show suffer with an impending trip to Saudi Arabia? Sound off in the comments!
