Tonight, during WWE SmackDown, WWE announced that Monday will be a night of grudge matches. They are billing the matches that are a result of last week’s Raw encounters as grudge matches.
Here is the rundown of matches:
- Sasha Banks and SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley defend the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles against Kairi Sane and RAW Women’s Champion Asuka
- Randy Orton vs. WWE 24/7 Champion R-Truth in a non-title match
- Seth Rollins vs. Kevin Owens
- The Viking Raiders vs. Andrade and Angel Garza in an Elimination Match
All of these have been longstanding feuds with the exception of Randy Orton vs. R-Truth. The two had a brief encounter this week. It is a non-title match.
Rollins vs. Owens continues a feud from previous pay-per-views. You have to think Rey Mysterio, Aleister Black, Dominik, and Buddy Murphy all get involved.
The Viking Raiders appear to be the stepping stone feud for Andrade and Garza to clear in order to get a shot at the Street Profits. We’ll see if Vega’s boys can get along.
The women’s tag match has the potential to steal the show. These ladies have been the best thing about Raw for weeks now.
