Bobby Lashley will defend United States title against AJ Styles. Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament will also continue with Alexa Bliss & Asuka taking on Doudrop and Nikki ASJ. Riddle will return to the red brand for an exclusive interview. Check below for the complete preview and match card for WWE RAW August 15, 2022 episode.
Lashley vs Styles – First Time Ever!
Bobby Lashley and AJ Styles will come face-to-face for the first time in a singles match as Lashley defends the US title in the capital city. Lashley successfully defended the title last week against Ciampa where AJ played a crucial role by taking out The Miz from ringside. AJ earlier lost the #1 contender match to Ciampa and is picked next to face Lashley on August 15 edition of RAW. Will he be able to upset the Allmighty and win the title here?
What’s the Story with Dexter Lumis?
Dexter Lumis was stopped by security as he attempted to run into the ring through the crowd. This angle closed last week’s RAW episode. However, throughout the show, backstage was in chaos as we first saw a car crash in the background in the parking lot, and later the security was seen frantically running around searching for someone. Was Lumis behind the car crash? Was he hurt by someone? We might get to know more on this angle this week on RAW.
Women’s Tag Team Championship Tournament
WWE finally started the Women’s Tag Team Championship tournament to crown the new champions last week. Alexa Bliss & Asuka will face Nikki Cross & Doudrop in the first-round match on RAW episode on August 15, 2022. The winner will get to face Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky in the semifinals. However, it will not be far-fetched to think that Bayley, Kai & Sky might try to influence the result of this match. Will it be the case?
Riddle’s Exclusive Interview
Riddle has been a victim of Seth Rollins’ stomp and even got injured last month and then at SummerSlam. His status currently remains unclear, but he would return to RAW this week for an exclusive interview. Rollins, on the other hand, has warned Riddle that he would Cody Rhodes his a– if he returned to RAW. Will Rollins do further damage to Riddle? Or will Riddle retaliate this time?
