WWE Raw preview, Nov. 26, 2018: Rollins to issue an Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge
This past Monday night on Raw, Dean Ambrose led Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins on a wild chase through the STAPLES Center, culminating in a physical altercation that left The Kingslayer laid out in the middle of the ring. In response, the resilient Rollins will look to “refocus” on his upcoming pay-per-view showdown by testing himself with an Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge, tonight on Raw.
Rollins to issue an Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge on Raw
Dean Ambrose has clearly taken up residence in the mind of Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins. Incensed and ready for a fight, The Kingslayer pursued The Lunatic Fringe all around the STAPLES Center this past Monday, finally getting his hands on his former Shield brother at the end of the night in the middle of the ring.
Ambrose was ready, though. Following a well-timed low blow, the Hounds of Justice turncoat incapacitated Rollins with two consecutive Dirty Deeds.
Will Rollins suffer a similar fate on Dec. 16 at WWE TLC, when he defends his title against the bitter Ambrose? Well, The Architect is not waiting around to find out. Instead, Rollins will look to “refocus” on his upcoming pay-per-view showdown by testing himself with an Intercontinental Championship Open Challenge, tonight on Raw.
Braun Strowman out of action; Corbin to battle Bálor on Raw
At the hands of Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman sustained a shattered right elbow this past Monday night, moments after he was granted a Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match against Corbin at WWE TLC that, if he were to win, would grant him a Universal Championship opportunity against Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble event.
With The Monster Among Men now requiring surgery, has the Acting Raw General Manager spared himself from a mauling at WWE TLC?
Although the news of Strowman’s setback must come as a major relief to Corbin, will he still be smiling when he battles his long-standing adversary Finn Bálor on Monday Night Raw?
“The Facebreaker” awaits The Baddest Woman on the Planet
After Ronda Rousey defended the Raw Women’s Championship against Mickie James in an unscheduled title bout this past Monday night on Raw, Nia Jax, with Tamina at her back, greeted The Rowdy One on the entrance ramp. The smiling Irresistible Force held up her right fist — the very fist that broke the face of SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch — as a stirring reminder that the same fate could befall The Baddest Woman on the Planet when they clash for the Raw Women’s Title at WWE TLC.
Will Jax come to regret taunting one of the most dangerous female athletes walking the planet today?
Roode & Gable get their Raw Tag Team Title opportunity vs. AOP
After humiliating Drake Maverick in the catering area for his embarrassing (and pants-ruining) accident at Survivor Series, Bobby Roode & Chad Gable scored what many would consider an upset victory over Raw Tag Team Champions AOP this past Monday night, bringing the Glorious pair even closer to Team Red’s tandem titles.
Now WWE.com has learned that Roode & Gable will finally get their golden opportunity as they take on AOP in a Raw Tag Team Championship Match this Monday night on Raw.
Can Roode & Gable’s magic strike twice or will it be a Glorious beatdown at the hands of the infuriated champs? Don’t miss any of the action on Monday Night Raw, live at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Elias walks into a showdown with “The All Mighty”
Two weeks ago on Raw, Elias cracked jokes at Lio Rush’s expense, and paid the price when Rush ensured “The All Mighty” Bobby Lashley’s count-out victory and a spot on the Raw Men’s Survivor Series Team.
The 24-Year-Old Piece of Gold again owned real estate inside Elias’ head last week, when he pulled his attention away and right into the path of Lashley’s vicious Spear during a Six-Man Tag Team Elimination Match.
Now, Elias has the chance to gain a measure of retribution in a one-on-one clash with Lashley this Monday night on Raw, but will he be able to remain focused on his opponent and keep The Man of the Hour’s meddling at bay?
