WWE has taken to its official website and social media to announce some new matches for tonight’s episode of Raw on the USA Network.
Firstly, as was teased last week, Raw Women’s Champion Asuka and Rhea Ripley will team up against Women’s Tag Team Champions Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler in a non-title tag team match.
If their volatile contract signing was any indication, Asuka and Rhea Ripley are about to tear each other up on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
But first, the WrestleMania opponents will attempt to coexist as they face WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax this Monday night on Raw in a non-title matchup.
Asuka declared last week that Ripley was not ready for her, and The Nightmare responded by bludgeoning The Empress of Tomorrow face-first with a table.
Slighted by the WrestleMania spotlight afforded to the Raw Women’s Champion and her challenger, Baszler & Jax extolled their own dominant run as champions before issuing this challenge.
Can heated rivals Asuka and Ripley stay on the same page before they lock horns at WrestleMania? Find out this Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network!
As well as that, Raw Tag Team Champion Xavier Woods will be taking on AJ Styles in a singles rematch from last week. WWE.com writes:
Xavier Woods and AJ Styles are set to tangle one more time in a pivotal collision before their teams face off at WrestleMania.
They’ll meet in a rematch this Monday night on Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network after Woods won last week’s bout by disqualification but was left in tatters thanks to Omos’ epic display of power.
The Phenomenal One’s personal colossus tossed Kofi Kingston over the WWE ThunderDome barricade and decimated Woods with a massive slam before Styles symbolically counted three – perhaps a sign of what’s to come in their Raw Tag Team Title Match on Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 this Saturday.
Can Woods claim a big victory for the Raw Tag Team Champions five days before these duos clash? Or will Styles show that The New Day are on borrowed time with the gold?
These matches are in addition to the already-confirmed Drew McIntyre vs King Corbin, and Bobby Lashley vs Cedric Alexander.
WrestleTalk.com will have live coverage of Raw tonight, as well as all shows during WrestleMania week.
