Two matches have been announced for Raw’s go-home show for Hell in a Cell.
A commercial that aired during SmackDown tonight announced two matches that will be taking place on this coming Monday’s episode of Raw:
RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) vs. The New Day (Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods)
Drew McIntyre vs. AJ Styles
RK-Bro and The New Day both took part in a number one contender’s tag team battle royal on Raw earlier this week. Riddle, who had already been eliminated by Woods, came back in the ring and got in Kingston’s way when Kingston went to hit Trouble in Paradise on Orton. After Kingston hit the move on Riddle, Orton eliminated Kingston. But The Viking Raiders then threw Orton out of the ring to win the battle royal.
Following the battle royal, Riddle and Kingston faced off in a singles match later in the night. Riddle had insisted on using the RKO in the match, but Kingston countered out of it before getting the win.
The issues between RK-Bro and The New Day began when Orton laid out Kingston and Woods after an eight-man tag match where they teamed together last month.
McIntyre is challenging for Bobby Lashley’s WWE Championship in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell on Sunday, June 20. That title match also has a stipulation where — if McIntyre loses — he won’t be able to challenge for the WWE Championship again while Lashley is still champion.
Styles & Omos are the current Raw Tag Team Champions. WWE hasn’t announced when The Viking Raiders will be getting their title shot against Styles & Omos.
It’s also been announced that Eva Marie will make her return to WWE television on Monday’s Raw. Videos hyping Marie’s return have been airing for the past several weeks.
