3 interesting things which could happen on the upcoming episode of Raw (7 January 2019)
Ever since the McMahon family took full control of both the Raw and SmackDown rosters, things have been changing quickly in WWE. However, the viewership rating for the last two weeks tells us a different story.
While the ratings touched a new low for the Christmas Eve episode of Raw, the last episode though saw a subtle growth, but was also under 2 million viewers.
Given the low ratings, it is not an ideal start to this new revolution in WWE. And so creative would be under a lot of pressure to deliver on the upcoming episode of Raw.
WWE has in fact announced a double main event involving Rollins versus Ambrose for the Intercontinental Championship, and John Cena featuring in a six-man tag team match with Elias and Finn Balor against Lashley, McIntyre, and Corbin.
Brock Lesnar, Strowman, Rousey, Hulk Hogan, and Alexa Bliss' new talk show, 'Moment of Bliss', have also been advertised by the WWE.
With some high profile names and segments being advertised for the show, it would not be wrong to say WWE wants to start the new year on a high.
So, lets take a look at 3 interesting things which could happen on the upcoming episode of Raw.
#3 Brock Lesnar and Strowman come face to face, and all hell breaks loose
Brock Lesnar is scheduled to defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman at Royal Rumble, but there is not much of a hype surrounding the match. However, this may change in the upcoming week on Raw.
Both Brock Lesnar and Strowman are being advertised for the upcoming episode of Raw, and creative could have them face-off, leading to a small brawl during a segment on the show.
This could lead to the whole roster coming out to separate the duo. Given Strowman is not fully recovered yet, a small brawl, with both trading shots at each other, could be on the cards.
