What did Nakamura tell Rollins?

World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins and Shinsuke Nakamura came face-to-face last week after Nakamura’s surprise attack on Rollins two weeks back. They agreed for a title match at a future date, but just as they shook hands on it, Nakamura said something in Rollins’ ear which disturbed Rollins. Nakamura then caught Rollins with another kinshasa to lay him out. Nakamura will now reveal what was it that he told Rollins.

Gunther vs Chad Gable

Chad Gable survived a 5-minute challenge against Gunther three weeks back on RAW, but Gunther ultimately defeated him after the match restarted. Gable then went on to become the #1 contender for Intercontinental Championship by winning a fatal 4-way match. The rivalry between Alpha Academy and Imperium continued further with Gable beating Giovanni Vinci last week while Gunther defeated Otis in different singles match. Miffed with Vinci’s loss, Gunther has vowed to finish Gable this week. Will his record-breaking reign continue?

New Day vs Glass-Bros

Matt Riddle and Drew McIntyre, known as Glass-Bros, have proved to be successful in their tag team pairing twice now. First, they defeated Imperium last month, and last week, they defeated the Viking Raiders. Excited with his victory last week, Matt Riddle was already eyeing tag team title bout. But, New Day’s Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods were quick to intervene and express their desire for the titles. This has set up a match between them for this week’s RAW.
