WWE Raw Lineup for Monday, July 27 – Two Extreme Rules Rematches
There are two Extreme Rules rematches being advertised for Monday’s edition of WWE Raw on July 27. This episode of Raw was taped after last week’s Raw was taped.
Drew McIntyre chooses the stipulation for his rematch with Dolph Ziggler this Monday on Raw
From the WWE.com preview, it states that McIntyre’s WWE Title is not on the line. Check it out here.
WWE Champion Drew McIntyre agreed to face Dolph Ziggler in a non-title rematch, but this time, he gets to choose the stipulation.
The Showoff thought he had the upper hand on McIntyre at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules when he chose to challenge for the WWE Title in a match where Extreme Rules applied only to Ziggler. Despite Ziggler’s clear advantage, McIntyre overcame the odds and retained his title.
When McIntyre attempted to turn his attention toward SummerSlam and finding a worthy opponent, Ziggler crashed the scene and demanded another match. McIntyre initially refused, but when Ziggler offered him the chance to pick the stipulation, the WWE Champion accepted. McIntyre declared that he’s going to make Ziggler sweat, much in the same way The Showoff did ahead of The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, and reveal the stipulation only just before the bell rings.
A loss for McIntyre would be a surprise.
Asuka and Sasha Banks collide for the Raw Women’s Championship this Monday on Raw
In the wake of the controversial conclusion of the Raw Women’s Championship Match at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, Stephanie McMahon announced that the true champion will be determined this Monday on Raw when Asuka and Sasha Banks clash for the title. However, in this match, the title can change hands by pinfall, submission, count-out, disqualification or if anybody interferes.
McMahon made that distinct stipulation coming out of The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules, where controversy abounded. Sasha pinned reigning champion Asuka, but Bayley was the one to make the three-count. She did so after the after donning the referee’s shirt when the official was on the receiving end of Asuka’s green mist. After the three-count, The Boss grabbed the title and left the building.
I think it will be a great match where Asuka remains the champion. It should be an awesome match just like their Extreme Rules match was.
Randy Orton to kick off Raw by announcing his next target
It is rumored that Orton will challenge Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam on August 23. The match makes a lot of sense, so I would assume that Orton will issue the challenge to start Raw. Maybe they do McIntyre vs. Ziggler right after that. After McIntyre wins, Orton can either hit an RKO on McIntyre or Drew can avoid it to show that’s ready for him.
If it’s not Orton targeting McIntyre then I would be surprised.
Three Raw tag teams to battle for title bout at SummerSlam
Ricochet & Cedric Alexander, The Viking Raiders and Andrade & Angel Garza will battle it out on Raw, and the victors will punch their ticket to The Biggest Event of the Summer, where they will challenge Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits for the titles.
The Street Profits are the babyface champions, so a heel team like Andrade and Garza make a lot of sense.
That’s all for the WWE Raw preview for now.
