WWE Monday Night Raw Preview for 08.22.2016: Finn Balor Reigns as WWE Universal Champion, Charlotte’s Second Reign Begins, Roman Reigns


WWE has a huge Monday Night Raw for the post-Summerslam 2016 crowd.

The top story is that Finn Balor is the first ever WWE Universal Champion.
Unleashing the full power of The Demon King on Seth Rollins last night at SummerSlam, Finn Bálor made history by becoming the first WWE Universal Champion. What awaits when the mysterious Superstar brings his newly won prize to Raw?

In a compelling match to crown the first ever WWE Universal, Finn Balor hit the Coup de Gras to defeat Seth Rollins clean. There will certainly be more to their feud, but also other contenders could appear. Finn Balor will appear as the champion for his first Raw tonight!

Meanwhile in the WWE Women’s Division, Charlotte regained the WWE Women’s Title from Sasha Banks in a really strong singles match. It was somewhat of a surprise that Banks lost the title in only one month, but she has also been pulled from house shows. Sources say she has an undisclosed injury. Whether or not she is on Raw, the second title reign of Charlotte is set to begin for the new fall season.

Here is the Quick Hits Preview:

  1. Raw becomes The Demon Kingdom. In an incredible, historic matchup, Finn Bálor put Seth Rollins away with a Coup de Grâce to become the first WWE Universal Champion last night at SummerSlam
  2. Charlotte demotes The Boss. The Boss refused to give up despite excruciating pain, and Sasha will undoubtedly display that same tenacity in her quest to reclaim the crown jewel of Raw’s Women’s division.
  3. The Beast at his most barbaric. How will The Beast Incarnate’s horrific actions impact tonight’s Raw, and how will Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley respond?
  4. Have The New Day found the cure for ‘ringpostitis’? But now that The New Day is fully functional and more virile than ever, are the WWE Tag Team Champions poised to give the wannabe doctors a triple-dose of payback?
  5. Will The Big Dog’s rampage continue?
