Raw Preview: King of the Ring Tournament Continues

Raw Preview: King of the Ring Tournament Continues

Tonight’s RAW will take place from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, and it is focusing on the following points:

Ricochet faces Drew McIntyre in King of the Ring clash

One week after Ricochet’s successful team-up with The Miz against Drew McIntyre and Baron Corbin, WWE’s resident superhero goes one-on-one with the savage Scotsman in the first round of the King of the Ring tournament.

The imposing McIntyre has a clear size advantage in this high-stakes matchup, but Ricochet is riding a wave of momentum following his tag team win this past Monday night. Will the high-flyer get one step closer to officially becoming King Ricochet on Monday night, or will McIntyre crush those dreams with a Claymore Kick?

The Miz squares off against Baron Corbin in first-round King of the Ring bout

Not long ago, Baron Corbin was the Constable of Raw, and he’s looking to add King to his list of monikers in the King of the Ring tournament. However, the first round of the tourney puts The Lone Wolf up against The Miz, who’s no stranger to lofty descriptors himself: In addition to being WWE’s A-Lister, Miz is, like Corbin, a Money in the Bank winner, but he’s also a former WWE Champion, a two-time United States Champion, an eight-time Intercontinental Champion, a seven-time Tag Team Champion and, oh yeah, a soon-to-be two-time father.

Miz certainly has the experience and accolades to put Corbin away in the King of the Ring tourney, but the calculating Corbin is as ruthless as they come – he infamously retired WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle at WrestleMania, after all. Will we soon witness the ascent of King Corbin?

Bayley takes on Nikki Cross following “A Moment of Bliss” interruption

SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley invaded “A Moment of Bliss” on SmackDown LIVE to knock Charlotte Flair off her pedestal and onto her backside. Following that interruption, Alexa Bliss’ best friend and her fellow WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Nikki Cross aims for payback when she battles Bayley one-on-one on Raw.

With The Goddess in her corner, Cross looks to make a statement against Bayley in this non-title contest. Can Nikki score a “Moment” of her own, or will the SmackDown Women’s Champion build key momentum as she prepares to defend her title against Charlotte at WWE Clash of Champions?

Can Sasha Banks’ rampage be stopped?

One week after returning and laying out an injured Natalya and Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks continued her rampage by once again targeting The Queen of Harts and insulting Natalya’s late father, WWE Hall of Famer Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart.

The Man made it clear in her interview on Raw that when she sees Banks again, she is going to give her “something to go run home and cry about.” However, that confrontation has yet to happen. Will anyone step to The Boss in New Orleans?

Seth Rollins & Braun Strowman bring the Raw Tag Team Titles to New Orleans

Although Braun Strowman clearly has his eyes locked on Seth Rollins’ Universal Championship, The Monster Among Men and The Beastslayer proved to be a strong team this past Monday night on Raw, conquering Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson to become Raw Tag Team Champions despite the attempted intervention of United States Champion AJ Styles.

What’s next for this strange-but-successful pairing, and how will The O.C. respond to their defeat?
