In case Logan Paul on Moist TV wasn’t enough to entice you to watch three hours of Raw tonight (Aug. 23), WWE’s announced a couple other things for the SummerSlam fallout show in San Diego.

Riddle & Randy Orton will celebrate their Bro-mance, and winning the Raw Tag Team titles on Saturday night - but hopefully mostly their Bro-mance. Five will get you ten this ends up as a rematch with AJ Styles & Omos.

The match they have announced is a bit of a head-scratcher. For the second straight week, Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley will tag together. Putting two people from a multi-person match together before a PPV is standard stuff, but it’s not often we see the losing 23 of a Triple Threat partner up again after their big match.

Rhea & Nikki lost as a team last Monday, so they’ll try to get off the schneid against another team that hasn’t been getting along lately on this week’s show.

It’s a smart strategy. Even if Nia Jax and her can get along, Shayna Baszler loses a lot (she’s 5 - 12 on television since WrestleMania 37).
