WWE has announced two matches for RAW June 19, 2023 episode including Logan Paul’s return, Shinsuke Nakamura vs Bronson Reed and Seth Rollins’ open challenge for World Heavyweight Championship.
After successfully defending the World Heavyweight Championship in an open challenge match against Damian Priest, Seth Rollins has again decided to put his title on the line once again. Rollins set up a match against Finn Balor at Money in the Bank 2023 during this week’s RAW episode. But that was not enough to quench his thirst for action and he decided to put out an open challenge for his World title next week.
Additionally, Logan Paul is set to make his comeback to WWE after a month. His last appearance was at WrestleMania 39, where he lost to Seth Rollins in a singles match. As soon as Logan’s return was announced, speculations started that he might be the one to answer to Rollins’ open challenge. Will it be the case? Logan already challenged Roman Reigns for Universal Championship last year at Crown Jewel.

Shinsuke Nakamura and Bronson Reed will clash in a rematch on June 19 RAW episode. Nakamura defeated Reed on May 29 RAW episode in men’s Money in the Bank qualifier. Reed then caused a disqualification last week during Ricochet vs Nakamura match. During the June 12 RAW episode, Reed faced Ricochet and ended up throwing Ricochet on Nakamura on the announce table.
