Match With SummerSlam Implications Added To WWE Raw

WWE has announced a new match for Monday’s Raw which will have implications for the upcoming August 23 SummerSlam pay-per-view.

There will be a three-way tag match to determine who will challenge the Street Profits for the Raw Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam, with the Viking Raiders vs Andrade & Angel Garza vs Cedric Alexander & Ricochet. writes:

Ricochet & Cedric Alexander, The Viking Raiders and Andrade & Angel Garza will battle it out on Raw, and the victors will punch their ticket to The Biggest Event of the Summer, where they will challenge Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits for the titles.

Ricochet & Alexander have gelled seamlessly to form one of the most exciting tag teams in WWE, using their incredible quickness to make their opponents’ heads spin. If they can establish a fast pace and take to the skies in the early goings of this Triple Threat Tag Team Match, they could be too much for their opponents to handle.

The Viking Raiders have become pals with The Street Profits in recent weeks and months, enjoying a game of one-upmanship against Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins in the “Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better” challenge, but the former titleholders are undoubtedly eyeing another opportunity at the tandem prize. If Erik & Ivar can turn the bout into an exchange of power moves and haymakers against their much smaller opponents, they will almost certainly have the inside track to The Biggest Event of the Summer.

Andrade & Angel Garza have each tasted singles gold in WWE, but neither has won any tag team accolades, and sharing the spotlight has been quite a challenge for both bombastic Superstars. Although they do occasionally butt heads and get under each other’s skin, Zelina Vega’s charges have proven to be an effective tag team when they’re on the same page, and they’ll certainly have a chance on Raw, provided they can get along.

Also announced for Monday’s Raw is a Women’s Title match between Asuka and Sasha Banks, and Randy Orton will appear to name his next victim, which is expected to be WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. McIntyre will also defend his title against Dolph Ziggler on Monday, but this time McIntyre gets to choose the stipulation.

As always, will have live coverage of Raw on Monday night.
