Look who is coming to Monday Night Raw next week.
WWE Champion Big E appeared on Friday Night SmackDown this week to get all up in Roman Reigns’ face and then team up with Finn Balor to defeat the current SmackDown Tag Team Champions, The Usos. This seemed like perhaps something of a build to E vs. Reigns at Survivor Series later this year, considering their respective positions at the top of the two WWE brands.
But while Big E mentioned as much, it’s now obvious there were more short term implications at play. Indeed, the promotion has announced that Reigns & The Usos will be on Raw next week for a match:
Before anyone gets to bringing up AEW beating Raw in any kind of demographics in the ratings, WWE has a tour of the U.K. scheduled for next week that is taking away some top stars from the red brand. Reigns & The Usos are simply reinforcements to help cover for that.
