Raw 5/31/2021 Preview: McIntyre vs. Kingston to Determine #1 Contender; Plus More!
Here's what's on tap for tomorrow’s Raw:
WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match: Elias & Jaxson Ryker vs. AJ Styles & Omos (champs)
Xavier Woods vs. Randy Orton
Miz TV: The Miz returns to host WWE Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair on Miz TV
Reginald vs. Shayna Baszler
#1 Contenders Match - Winner faces Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at Hell in a Cell: Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston
The feud between Elias and Jaxson Ryker and WWE Raw Tag Team Champions, AJ Styles and Omos, will come to a head this Monday when Elias and Ryker get a shot at the tag titles. Ryker was able to get a victory over Styles last week and they've seemed to have the champs number in recent weeks. Will Elias and Ryker be able to overcome Styles and his personal colossus Omos when it matters most?
Randy Orton returns to Raw to battle Xavier Woods. Woods got hit with a RKO last week courtesy of Riddle. Will Orton make it two weeks in a row or can Woods find a way to victory?
The Miz hasn't been seen on Raw since he was "eaten by zombies" at WrestleMania Backlash. The less said about the match the better. Miz will return on Monday to host an episode of Miz TV that is sure to have fireworks when he host WWE Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley and her Hell in a Cell opponent Charlotte Flair.
Shayna Baszler has reached her boiling part with Reginald and she's ready to take out her frustrations in a one-on-one match. Reginald seems to have been targeted by Alexa Bliss is recent weeks and it has costs Baszler and Nia Jax a number of matches. Baszler will be looking to punish Reginald when they meet on Monday.
After their #1 contenders match last week came to a screeching halt thanks to Bobby Lashley and MVP, Adam Pearce made the decision to let these two go at it again this week. We'll have the same stakes this Monday. However, Bobby Lashley is banned from ringside this time. Should Lashley interfere, Pearce has said that he will be suspended 90 days with no pay. This should allow us to have a clear winner. Who will pick up the win and move on to Hell in a Cell to face Lashley for the WWE Championship?
Tune in tomorrow to see what goes down!
