WWE has an all new Monday Night Raw tonight live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
The lead story is a WWE Woman’s Title match where Charlotte will defend in a one on one match against Sasha Banks.
WWE.com: Live in Los Angeles, Sasha Banks gets her one-on-one rematch with Charlotte for the Raw Women’s Championship. Will The Boss make Team Red’s self-professed “Queen” bow down to her? Plus, “The Ranch” stars Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson guest-star on what’s sure to be a blockbuster Monday night.
These two women have traded wins in singles matches for the title, so it should be fascinating to see another match in their series. There have been in-ring work issues in the past and hopefully things will be a bit smoother. And where does Bayley fit in?
WWE has loaded up the show with not one but two huge title rematches. The Woman’s Title as mentioned above, but also the newly christened WWE Cruiserweight Championship will be defended on Raw. TJ Perkins fended off Brian Kendrick on the Clash of Champions PPV, but Kendrick attacked him after the match. Now The Brian will get another shot at the title. Should be a showcase match on Raw tonight.
Seth Rollins has been at war with Stephanie McMahon and more specifically Raw General Manager Mick Foley since Kevin Owens was given the Universal Title. What is next in the feud betwen Rollins and the Authority? And will it lead to another title shot for the Architect?
After a seven match series plus, Sheamus and Cesaro have been apparently forced into being a tag team. They are being slotted high in the tag team division, and appear to be on a collision course with the New Day for the WWE Raw Tag Team Titles. A new chapter in the Sheamus/Cesaro pairing storyline will unfold on Raw this week.
Big Cass mentioned Ashton Kutcher a couple weeks ago, and Chris Jericho insulted him and eventually added him to the list. Now Kutcher, along with That 70s Show running buddy Danny Masterson will be AT RAW this week as the show eminates from Los Angeles.
Kevin Owens has a string of wins as WWE Universal Champion, and while he might be on pace for a rematch against Seth Rollins, his next opponent is still not known or announced. Owens will be on Raw to cut a promo and possibly back up his buddy Chris Jericho against a celebrity invasion.
All this plus Nia Jax, The Golden Truth, other Cruiserweights and much more could be on Raw!
Here is the WWE.com Quick Hits Preview:
Sasha Banks challenges Charlotte one-on-one. Will The Boss live up to her promise to emerge as the “face” of Raw’s Women’s division this Monday in Los Angeles?
Will Seth Rollins continue to defy Raw General Manager Mick Foley? If that’s the case, Foley might be pushed too far, and the consequences for “The Man” could be severe.
Cesaro & Sheamus continue their tag team quest Clearly, their team-building skills could use more work if they have any chance of ending The New Day’s historic Raw Tag Team Title reign.
Can Brian Kendrick put himself in line for another WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match? The self-professed “Wrestling Yoda” will look to get one step closer to that goal when he goes head-to-head with Perkins Monday night at the Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center. Can he put himself in line for another title opportunity?
Will Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson top “The List of Jericho”? Jeri-KO might be the ones feeling like “stupid idiots” Monday night when Kutcher and Masterson pay them a visit.
