This week’s episode of WWE RAW is set to be a star-studded show.
In the likely main event, Bobby Lashley will defend his WWE Championship against Randy Orton. “The Viper”, one half of RK-Bro, was scheduled to defend his RAW Tag Team Championship against Lashley and MVP this Monday after the duo won a lengthy Tag Team Turmoil match last week. Additonally, it’s unclear how this match affects Orton’s scheduled WWE Championship match with Lashley at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view on September 26.

Plus, spinning out of that same Tag Team Turmoil bout, AJ Styles and Omos will join forces with Mace and T-Bar to face the combination of the New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) and Mustafa Ali & Mansoor. All four teams faced off last Monday, and Mace and T-Bar brutally attacked Kingston, Woods, Mansoor and Ali during the bout.
Finally, Rhea Ripley will take on Natalya, one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, WWE RAW Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will face Shayna Baszler in a non-title match, and WWE United States Damian Priest will hold an open challenge.
The updated card is as follows:
- WWE Championship Match: Bobby Lashley (with MVP (c) vs. Randy Orton (with Riddle)
