• Bobby Lashley Going After RAW Title?
As seen at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, the team of WOKEN Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt defeated The Bar (Sheamus & Cesaro) to win the vacant RAW Tag Team Titles.
RAW Superstar Bobby Lashley congratulated Matt Hardy on his Title win on Twitter, but he also teased going after Wyatt & Hardy for the RAW Tag Team Titles by tagging “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman (who was his tag team partner on last week’s RAW) and using a thinking emoji in his tweet.
