WWE Monday Night Raw preview: August 28, 2017
A fearsome contender emerges and a title rematch from WWE SummerSlam!
One week removed from WWE SummerSlam and one week closer to No Mercy, the WWE machine whirrs on, and brings with it a host of intriguing match-ups and must-watch storylines.
How can it not be when Braun Strowman gears up to face Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title at the pay-per-view?
After laying the "Beast Incarnate" to waste last week, how will Strowman continue to build his momentum as he inches towards his first singles title shot?
Unlike Brock Lesnar, however, whose title is in serious jeopardy, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins sit pretty atop the Tag Team division.
Will disgraced ex-champions Sheamus and Cesaro show up as the next challengers? Or is there another tag team duo waiting to pounce on the opportunity?
And what is to be of the WWE RAW Women's Title when former champion Alexa Bliss challenges Sasha Banks in a SummerSlam rematch?
Combing through all these questions and more, here is our preview of this week's episode of Monday Night RAW.
#1 An epic encounter in the making
Although John Cena and Roman Reigns briefly aligned their interests in taking out The Miz and Samoa Joe last week, Cena made no bones about the fact that he's only on the Red brand to duel with "The Big Dog".
That being said, Roman Reigns isn't one to back down from a challenge either.
Will we finally see present and future collide in what promises to be a rollicking feud? Or will the likes of Samoa Joe and The Miz get involved two weeks on the trot, forcing Cena and Reigns to join forces yet again?
Either way, a promising match beckons at No Mercy.
