Double contract signing for Extreme Rules: The Horror Show set for tonight

Last Monday, two huge championship matches were set for Extreme Rules: The Horror Show: WWE Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler and Raw Women’s Champion Asuka vs. Sasha Banks. Now, all four Superstars will be in the ring at the same time, as Samoa Joe officiates what is sure to be a contentious double contract signing.

As things heat up ahead of The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, what will happen when these bitter rivalries converge in the ring? Is chaos inevitable? Find out on Raw, this Monday at 8/7 C on USA!

Will Seth Rollins continue his reign of terror?

Though Rey Mysterio and his son Dominik stood united in the ring last Monday, it nearly ended in horrific fashion, as The Monday Night Messiah tried to subject Dominik to the same gruesome eye injury as his father.

Has Rollins finally gone too far, or will The Monday Night Messiah’s vision continue to cause havoc on the red brand? Find out on Raw, this Monday at 8/7 C on USA Network!

United States Champion Apollo Crews faces MVP in non-title match

After being suckered into an ambush last week, United States Champion Apollo Crews will have an opportunity at retribution tonight when he faces MVP in a non-title match.

MVP has seen his attempts to bring the promising Superstar into his camp resisted at every pass after aggressively pursuing Crews for weeks.

Frustrated by his failure to land his target, MVP turned spiteful last week. First, he lured Crews into a trap for Shelton Benjamin to ambush him prior to their match. Then he unleashed Bobby Lashley to viciously lock Crews in the Full Nelson following his victory over Benjamin.

MVP figures to have more tricks up his sleeve for this one-on-one encounter. Will Crews overcome MVP’s veteran savvy and knock off the former United States Champion?

The Viking Raiders take on Andrade & Angel Garza

The Street Profits and Viking Raiders have developed a competitive but friendly rivalry in recent weeks, and neither duo takes kindly to the other being disrespected. Erik & Ivar demonstrated exactly that, backing up The Street Profits when Andrade & Angel Garza ambushed them after their match last week on Raw.

Now, The Viking Raiders will look to defend their friends’ honor against Andrade & Garza tonight on Raw.

With their recent issues apparently patched up at the behest of Zelina Vega, Andrade & The Lethal Lothario may have championship gold in their sights. But any opportunity at The Street Profits’ Raw Tag Team Titels likely goes through Erik & Ivar first.

Akira Tozawa defends the 24/7 Title against R-Truth

Thanks to Bobby Lashley, Akira Tozawa is the new 24/7 Champion, but how long will he hold on to it? Tozawa will put the title on the line tonight against R-Truth.

After destroying Tozawa’s ninjas, Lashley — who was looking for payback after he and MVP lost to Truth and Drew McIntyre a week earlier – left Truth devastated with the Full Nelson. From there, Tozawa picked up the pieces to become 24/7 Champion for a second time.

Tune in tonight at 8/7 C to see if Truth can recapture his title!

Big Show and Ric Flair to appear on Raw as Randy Orton lays in wait

Randy Orton warned Big Show last week “what happens next is on you,” but The World’s Largest Athlete isn’t shying away from the spotlight. Ric Flair will also roll into the red brand, as “The Nature Boy” has been front and center in Orton’s recent rampage.

As Flair presented The Viper as The Greatest Wrestler Ever, Big Show angrily interrupted after Orton’s attacks on fellow icons Edge & Christian and informed The Viper of his intentions of breaking every bone in the dangerous Superstar’s body.

The Dirtiest Player in the Game helped Orton take out Christian, but is he ready to step in Big Show’s path? And how will the colossal Superstar respond to Orton’s harsh words?

Catch the two WWE legends on Raw tonight at 8/7 C on the USA Network.
