WWE booked multiple matches for next week’s episode of Monday Night Raw during this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, two of them title matches.
First, it was announced that NXT’s Dragon Lee would be coming up to the main roster to challenge Dominik Mysterio for the North American Championship. That title typically belongs to the WWE developmental brand but they’ve been making quite a few exceptions for special occasions.
Hey, it’s easy promotion for both.
Although, Mustafa Ali is none too pleased about this:
