Bobby Lashley vs Ciampa – US Title Match
Last week, Ciampa earned himself an opportunity to face the United States champion by defeating AJ Styles in a no. 1 contender match. Now, this week the All Mighty Bobby Lashley will put his title on the line against the former NXT champion Ciampa in a singles match. So, will a new US champion be crowned this week on Red Brand?
Rey Mysterio vs Finn Balor
The Mysterios have been feuding with The Judgement Day for quite a while now. We thought that the rivalry might be over after The Mysterios defeated Judgment Day after some help from Edge. However, Judgment Day attacked The Msyterios again last week. In the next chapter of this rivalry, Rey Mysterio will face Finn Balor in a singles match. So, will Balor finally be able to defeat Rey?
Rey was caught in doubt when Edge accidentally ended up hitting Dominik with a spear. Will that doubt cost Rey the match against Balor?
Women’s Tag-Team Championship Tournament
WWE announced a tournament to crown the new women’s tag-team champions right after they stripped Sasha Banks & Naomi of the title. The much-awaited tournament will finally take place this week. However, WWE hasn’t announced the format or participants of this tournament. So, who do you think will become the new WWE women’s tag-team champions?
