Two matches and one segment have been announced for the Oct. 19 “season premiere” of Raw.
Unless they disappear the way the Mustafa Ali promo we were promised on last night’s show did, here’s what’s coming out way next Monday...
Braun Strowman & Keith Lee’s first match was an exhibition set up by five-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion Adam Pearce* before Strowman was a member of the Raw roster. Now he is, they still want to do violence to one another, so... time to do it again.
It’ll be interesting to see how an Elias concert will work with virtual fans, since whether he’s a face or a heel, his act is built around audience reactions. It’ll also be interesting to see how Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles get involved. Even though we all know Hardy was framed by Sheamus, Elias seems to thinks Jeff hit him with a car. He attacked the Charismatic Enigma and cost him his match against Styles and Seth Rollins last night. AJ swears he didn’t enlist help from the Drifter, but methinks the Phenomenal One might be protesting too much.
Lana’s shot at Asuka and the Raw Women’s title is also supposed to happen next week.
Sound like a plan?
