AJ Styles - Ricochet Feud To Begin On RAW, Handicap Match Announced, Drew Gulak on Cruiserweight Title Win
- As noted, tonight's WWE Stomping Grounds Kickoff pre-show saw Drew Gulak win the WWE Cruiserweight Title by defeating Akira Tozawa and former champion Tony Nese in a Triple Threat.

The WWE Stats page notes that the last time a Cruiserweight Title changed hands in a Triple Threat was when Chavo "Classic" defeated Spike Dudley and Chavo Guerrero during a 2004 SmackDown episode.

Speaking of Gulak, in this video Drew claims he’s done helping others and wants to create change as the new WWE Cruiserweight Champion.



- The Club's AJ Styles, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows confronted new WWE United States Champion Ricochet backstage at WWE Stomping Grounds during his championship photo shoot, just minutes after his title win over Samoa Joe. Styles warned Ricochet that he would see him at this week's RAW.

It looks like Styles has been cleared to return to the ring from his recent injury as WWE has just announced Styles vs. Ricochet for this week's RAW from Everett, Washington. The title will not be on the line.
United States Champion Ricochet to battle AJ Styles tonight

Ricochet took full advantage of his first singles title opportunity by overcoming Samoa Joe to capture the esteemed United States Championship. Now that he's titleholder, however, it is clear that he will have no shortage of challengers.

Case in point, moments after AJ Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson invited themselves into the new titleholder's photoshoot, The Phenomenal One said he would see Ricochet on Raw.

WWE.com has since learned that the two Superstars will, in fact, square off in a non-title match. Will Ricochet rise above? Will Styles end the celebration and set himself up with a future title opportunity? Will the defeated Samoa Joe play a role in the contest?

- Shane McMahon and Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns in a 2-on-1 Handicap Match has been announced for tomorrow's WWE RAW episode from Everett, Washington.

The match was announced by Shane during a backstage segment at tonight's WWE Stomping Grounds pay-per-view. The pay-per-view saw Reigns defeat McIntyre in a singles match, despite several instances of interference from Shane.
