6 interesting things that could happen on Raw & SmackDown this week
Between the Money in the Bank pay-per-view and Super ShowDown, WWE hasn’t really gotten too much time to create proper build-ups towards the next major event for Saudi Arabia. This has further been impacted by All Elite Wrestling’s first event Double or Nothing last week, which saw fans enjoy the new promotion’s first event.
Since a couple of matches, such as Goldberg vs. The Undertaker and Triple H vs. Randy Orton don’t really require much of a build up due to the names involved in the match, it is always better to have a story going to make the showdown more memorable.
This week, we expect WWE to keep their complete focus on the major event in Saudi Arabia and ensure that they deliver an event which will help increase their overall viewership and ratings.
In this article, we will look at the 6 things that could happen on Raw and SmackDown this week on the road to Super ShowDown.
#6 Roman Reigns teams up with Lance Anoa’i
Last week’s Raw introduced us to a new face who is still undergoing his WWE training, Lance Anoa’i.
Lance represented the Samoan Dynasty and is part of the same family that Roman Reigns belongs to. Shane McMahon battled the newcomer in a match which saw outside interferences from Drew McIntyre make things much easier for Shane who managed to pull off a rather quick victory without too many moves.
After the match, Shane and McIntyre continued to beat down the member of the Anoa’i family until Roman Reigns’ music hit and The Big Dog made the save, sending both Shane and McIntyre running for cover.
While most of us expected Lance’s appearance on Raw to be a one-off affair, the fact that he has been introduced into a red-hot rivalry involving the top superstars in WWE, and also judging from his Tweet from last week, we can expect him to show up a few more times.
Will Reigns and Lance team up this week to take on Shane and McIntyre or Elias?
