WWE Monday Night Raw Preview for 09.19.2016: Seth Rollins Takes on Rusev


WWE has the go-home edition of Monday Night Raw for the Clash of Champions PPV. However, before we get there, #1 contender Seth Rollins has to take on the mighty Rusev.

Here is WWE.com on the match:
After interfering in Raw’s main event and effectively helping to cost Roman Reigns a spot in Clash of Champions’ WWE Universal Title Match, Seth Rollins and Rusev must suffer the fallout when they go one-on-one this Monday night. Plus, the Cruiserweights are finally coming to Team Red!

After defying WWE Raw General Manager Mick Foley last week on Raw when he interfered in the main event, Seth Rollins is being forced to take on Rusev in the Raw main event, less than 1 week out from the Clash of Champions PPV.

The Cruiserweight Championship winner TJ Perkins also ended up as the first ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion (of the current era)! The Cruiserweights graduate to the main roster in a big way this week, debuting as a Raw exclusive. So far, seven wrestlers are confirmed to be part of the division: Brian Kendrick, Rich Swann, Gran Metalik, Cedric Alexander, Lince Dorado, Noam Dar and of course the champion Perkins. There should be something on Raw to set up a championship defense for Perkins at the PPV.

In the Women’s Division, Sasha Banks is locked in for a singles title match against Charlotte after last week’s Raw where she won in a 3 way #1 contenders match. Charlotte is not happy about that match, or that her sidekick Dana Brooke has not been able to fend off Bayley or Sasha. The final build to the PPV title match unfolds on Raw.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see a second women’s division match added to the PPV, as the issue between Nia Jax and Alicia Foxx is heating up.

The tag team titles will be on the line when the New Day take on the Club at the PPV, and there should be more WACKY ANTICS between the two teams on Raw. Hopefully this storyline is nearing its conclusion either way.

WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens has fended off matches against Sami Zayn and Roman Reigns since being handed the title by HHH, but is not yet booked for a match on Raw. Will Mick Foley put Owens in a tune up match before his title defense just six days away? Owens friend in recent months, Chris Jericho, has taken up the mantle of Owens’ feud with Zayn, and the two will tangle at the Clash of Champions. Expect multiple segments with Owens and Jericho on Raw.

Last week, the peace loving Jinder Mahal not only defeated Jack Swagger, but sent him packing! Who is next for this wrecking machine?

All this plus Roman Reigns, Bo Dallas, and much more!

Here is the WWE.com Quick Hits Preview for Raw:

  1. Seth Rollins must battle Rusev on Raw! The Architect must go one-on-one with The Bulgarian Brute on Monday night! Who will survive this absolute match of mayhem?
  2. The Cruiserweights arrive on Raw. Who will we see on the Cruiserweights’ first night on Monday night’s hottest show?
  3. Cesaro looks to even up the Best of Seven Series in Match No. 6. With the score now at 3-2, The Swiss Superman is just one victory away from evening up the series.
  4. Are the walls closing in on Charlotte? Can Charlotte keep it together as her rematch with Sasha Banks approaches?
