WWE Raw comes live tonight from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on the USA Network from 8/7C with the pre-show commencing half an hour prior to that. The pre-show is available exclusively on the WWE Network.
In the Indian region, Raw will be broadcast tomorrow (August 30) live from 5 AM IST on the TEN 2 and TEN 2 HD channels. The repeat telecast will be aired tomorrow on TEN 1 at 2 and 5 PM. Here’s what can be expected from the night.
Last week, after Summerslam we received the news that the newly crowned WWE universal champion, Finn Balor suffered a dislocated shoulder by eating a powerbomb on the barricade by Seth Rollins. Hence he had no choice but to relinquish his title. So the show-runners announced a fatal-4-way match to crown a new WWE Universal Champion for the flagship show of WWE.
Since the WWE brand extension draft, we don’t have a permanent champion on Raw. But, we can expect to have one at the end of the night. Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens and Big Cass will clash in a blockbuster fatal-4-way match. Big Cass or Kevin Owens is considered to be the underdog of the match. However, don’t be surprised if Owens walks out as the new champion. Rollins and Reigns have the most chance to have the reddish gold by winning the main event, though. Since Rollins did not lose the WWE championship last year, he becomes the automatic favorite to win the title. However, big swerve like Roman Reigns turning heel can also be expected by the end of the night.
Apart from the main event, the focus should be on Bayley who made a spectacular debut last week on Raw. The audience literally erupted after seeing her on the main roster, finally.
Now, since the get going she made her intentions clear that she’s going to chase Charlotte for the Women’s title.
So, she should go on to build a strong momentum before getting the championship match. However, the number’s game is still not in her favor. It is yet to see how she encounters Dana and Charlotte’s combined force.
