Next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw is the final stop for the Raw brand on the road to Extreme Rules which takes place on Sunday, July 14th and the company wants to make quite the statement in Newark, New Jersey.
Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch have already accepted the challenge from Andrade and Zelina Vega, who wanted a mixed tag team match with WWE’s biggest power couple. The duo took to Twitter following Andrade’s victory over Apollo Crews on SmackDown Live and was seemingly looking for a bigger challenge.
Rollins and Lynch accepted the challenge on Twitter and now the company has made it official. Rollins and Lynch battle Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans at Extreme Rules next Sunday night which means that the duo could be waiting in the wings to interfere in this match and have the final say ahead of their “Winners Take All” match.
Another huge match set to take place at Extreme Rules sees Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre take on the mismatched team of The Undertaker and Roman Reigns. Ahead of their showdown WWE has announced that Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre will team up to take on Roman Reigns and a partner of McMahon’s choosing.
There is no news on who Roman Reigns’ partner will be on Monday Night Raw, but the added stipulation here is that if The Undertaker gets involved in the match then he will be taken out of the match that is planned for Extreme Rules.
Undertaker was part of last week’s Raw without Reigns where he was able to deliver a creepy promo to McMahon and McIntyre but this was only because the company was in Texas but this week they’re in New Jersey, so it’s not likely that The Deadman will be in attendance.
