Given the degrading product and dwindling viewership and ratings plus the increasing competition, WWE made Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff the new Executive Directors of Raw and SmackDown respectively in hope of some revival. And Heyman's effect was quite evident as the last episode of Raw received positive reviews from both fans as well as critics alike.
While AJ Styles turning heel to beat the living daylights out of Ricochet with The Club was the highlight of the show, the backstage chaos involving Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley and the segment with NXT tag team Champions The Street Profits had Heyman's fingerprints all over it.
This week's episode also saw a rise of 10 per cent from the previous week's episode as the show garnered 2.4 million viewers. With Heyman being in charge of WWE's flagship show, things are expected to change for better and WWE would like him to continue doing the good work when Raw comes live from New Jersey next week.
WWE is advertising two huge tag team matches for the upcoming episode - Roman Reigns and a mystery partner vs Baron Corbin and Drew McIntyre plus Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins vs Andrade and Zelina Vega. Given it will be the go-home episode of Raw before Extreme Rules, expect WWE to hype the pay-per-view.
In this article we are going to take a look at 3 interesting things which could happen on the upcoming episode of Raw.
Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch will face Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans in a winners take all tag team matchup at Extreme Rules. However, before that, the duo will face the team of Andrade and Zelina Vega in a tag team match on the upcoming episode of Raw.
While it has the potential to be a classic match, expect it to turn chaotic sooner than later. Yes, the duo of Corbin and Evans could show up to join hands with Andrade and Vega in beating the life out of Rollins and Becky.
This would not only be their way of sending a strong message to the Champion Couple but would certainly hype their match for July 14.
