With Raw facing big competition on Sept. 26 from the U.S. Presidential debate and Monday Night Football, WWE is retaliating with that time honored tradition...
Do-overs from the previous night’s pay-per-view (PPV)!
BREAKING: The #RAWTagTeamTitles AND #USTitle will be on the line in TWO #WWEClash rematches TONIGHT on #RAW! https://t.co/1m2n5ShvE2 pic.twitter.com/UexbXaqHZ8— WWE (@WWE) September 26, 2016
The company announced that, for the second straight week, Raw will start with Roman Reigns. The Big Dog defeated Rusev for the United States title at Clash of Champions last night (Sept. 25), which prompted WWE to release a video declaring him “America’s champion”. That also gives us zero reason to think he’s losing it tonight, but... there you have it.
Also set for the show is the latest Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows tag title shot. Xavier Woods - and Francesca the trombone - got involved last night to ensure the New Day’s second championship reign would reach an impressive 400 days. WWE.com says that due to the controversial win, the Club guys will get a rematch. But Kofi Kingston has declared several times of late that he, Big E & Woods are never losing the straps. While “never” is a big claim, after their latest win, it doesn’t feel that outlandish.
Will these rematches get you to tune in tonight at 8PM?
