WWE News: Two more matches confirmed for tonight's episode of Monday Night Raw
Just hours prior to tonight's (26th August) episode of Monday Night RAW, WWE has taken to their social media accounts and have confirmed two mega matches for the show, including a US Championship rematch between current champion A.J. Styles and Braun Strowman.
Braun Strowman's pursuit to win the US Championship
At WWE Extreme Rules, A.J. Styles won the WWE United States Championship for the third time in his career when he defeated former champion Ricochet with a little help from his fellow O.C. stablemates Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
Following Styles' win, The Phenomenal One would successfully defend his title against Ricochet in a rematch at SummerSlam and two weeks ago on RAW, The O.C. would run roughshod through Ricochet and WWE Universal Champion, Seth Rollins before Braun Strowman would eventually make the save.
This eventually led to a US Title match between Strowman and Styles on last week's episode of RAW, however, the match ended in a disqualification when Gallows and Anderson ran down to the ring and started assaulting Strowman, who was eventually saved Seth Rollins.
Later in the same night, Strowman and Rollins challenged The O.C. to a RAW Tag Team Title match and much to everyone's surprise, the unlikely duo of The Monster Among Men and the current Universal Champion ended up winning the titles.
Matches confirmed for tonight's Raw
WWE has taken to their official Twitter and Instagram handle and have announced two more matches for tonight's episode of RAW. As noted, A.J. Styles will be defending the WWE United States Championship against Braun Strowman in a rematch from last week, whereas, the biggest tag team turmoil in WWE history will also be taking place on tonight.
