To kick-off a big week, WWE is going large for the RAW episode of 30 September and dubbing it as the “Season Premiere” episode. The show will not only feature 3 title matches apart from the appearances from WWE Hall of Famers Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. Without wasting more time, lets dive start into the matches.
Seth Rollins vs Rey Mysterio – WWE Universal Championship Match
Preview- Seth Rollins will be facing the Fiend inside Hell in a Cell. Before that, he will have to defend the title against one of his dream opponents, Rey Mysterio. Rey Mysterio was about to leave WWE after a string of losses but after his son changed his mind, his mini redemption story has started. Mysterio became the no. 1 contender by winning a big fatal 5-way elimination match, but that is it for the buildup for this match. And hence comes my prediction.
Prediction- Seth Rollins is gonna retain the title here. Two reasons for that:
- His match against the Fiend is already announced for Hell in a Cell and unless WWE wants to get out of either of them losing that battle, Rollins will get there as the champion.
- This title match is thrown together just because WWE is dubbing the show as the Season Premiere. And there is no build-up towards it as significant as the title change.
Brock Lesnar to Appear on the Show
Preview- Just before he will return to SmackDown for his first match on the brand after 14 years, Brock Lesnar will be stopping by at RAW. Is it only gonna be Brock Lesnar coming out, walking gingerly, followed by a promo by Paul Heyman? May be Kofi Kingston will also stop over at RAW and try to toy with Lesnar?
Prediction- Brock Lesnar to decimate Kofi Kingston in a brawl.
Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler vs Heavy Machinery
Preview- Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler have somehow become a team and then had to become the Tag Team champions once they were against the feuding duo of Rollins and Strowman. Heavy Machinery, on the other hand, has started to become a fan favorite and look really good (even in defeat). So, a good babyface team who can carry the match against a team which specializes in sneaking wins under the nose: a perfect match setup.
Prediction- This match is dropped in Heavy Machinery’s lap out of nowhere and but that is about the end of their journey on RAW. Roode and Ziggler to retain.
