Bengaluru, December 4: WWE Monday Night Raw is set to go Hollywood tonight where we expect some big-time storylines to gather pace on the show hosted by the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
With no more PPV event left this year, the flagship show will have to keep it simple with good storylines to garner some interest from the WWE universe and we also need to remember that the prime title holder of the show will also be away for a while.
So, the three members of The Shield are expected to be the highlight of the brand and tonight, they will compete in another championship match.
The live telecast of the show will be available via the Sony Ten 1 Network on Tuesday (December 5) from 6.30 AM onwards, while the repeat will be aired on the same network at 4 PM and 9 PM, later that day (December 5).
One of the main events of the night will feature a match for the Raw tag team championships. Dean Ambrose and Sheamus missed last week’s edition and are expected to be back tonight to collide in a rematch. The pair also take forward their rivalry that started at Summerslam.
As per speculations, two-thirds members of The Shield are expected to regain the titles. WWE.com also hinted the same,
“With Roman Reigns now holding the Intercontinental Title, a victory for the brothers-in-arms would put championship gold around all three Hounds of Justice’s waists. Can The Lunatic Fringe and The Kingslayer conquer The Celtic Warrior and The Swiss Cyborg?”
Last week, Rich Swann emerged as the first contender for 205 division and this week, another contestant will join him from the fatal-4-way match between Cedric Alexander, Tony Nese, Drew Gulak and Mustafa Ali to decide the next contender for the Cruiser Weight title.
Plus, a new storyline is expected to start tonight featuring Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe. Apparently, it is going to be the next feud reserved for the marquee player of the company for the title.
Last week, Joe started it by attacking the Big Dog on the ramp and this week, Reigns will try to seek redemption against him.
The Absolution led by Paige are expected to dominate the Women’s division as the trio are set to do so by targeting the female roster and names like Bayley, Sasha Banks will definitely try to fight back against them.
WWE announced a singles match between Paige and Sasha Banks in which will be the first singles match for the anti-Diva since her return.
Also, the feud between Kane and Braun Strowman is set to gather pace again this week. Plus, the Broken Matt Hardy character is on the verge of arriving to the flagship show and might happen tonight on Raw.
