Monday Night Raw makes its way back to the Lone Star State as they will crown a brand new WWE Universal Champion. They were left in a pickle last week after Finn Balor had to relinquish the title just a night after becoming the inaugural champion.
With the blockbuster announcement to kick off last week’s show came another big announcement as there were four matches to determine the finalists for the Universal Championship. Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Big Cass won the right to fight for the championship in a Fatal-Four Way match in tonight’s main event.
On top of that huge match, we should get much more development around the tag team division as The New Day seemingly have unfinished business with Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, who seem to be continuing a path of destruction on the flagship show of WWE.
Bayley made her long-awaited debut last week and claimed that she was ready to take hold of the women’s division. She is the top face on the show as Sasha Banks is taking time off to recuperate, so I would expect The Hugger to begin chasing two-time champion Charlotte for a title shot.
It should be a fun week from the Toyota Center. Here is all the information you need to tune into tonight’s show:
