– Gimmick Match Added To Raw
Below is what WWE posted regarding a gimmick match being added to next week’s episode of Raw:
“After Elias blasted Jason Jordan with his guitar during their match two weeks ago, Jordan fired back last week and delivered a guitar counter-assault.
Accordingly, WWE.com has learned that the two Superstars will come to Manchester, England this Monday night to go head-to-head in a Guitar-on-a-Pole Match on Raw.
The contest, which can only be won when a Superstar retrieves the guitar and uses it on his opponent, promises to leave one of these competitors singing the blues.
Don’t miss a moment of the action as the hits keep on coming for Team Red. Raw journeys to the Manchester Arena, this Monday night at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
– Opening Match For Next Week’s Raw Revealed
WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle will be the special guest on MizTV in the opening segment of next week’s episode of Raw. Below is what WWE posted about this:
“In the wake of #UnderSiege, irate Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon returned to Raw last week to demand that Kurt Angle captain the Team Raw Men’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Team.
In response, the WWE Hall of Famer wasted no time showing his resolve by recruiting the dominant Braun Strowman as his first pick.
Meanwhile, SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon has announced that he will SmackDown’s Team Captain – with Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode ready to back him.
But who will Angle select to fill the remaining spots to represent Team Red in the crucial showdown for brand supremacy? Can his Monster Among Men possibly work together with whomever he selects?
In addition, controversy has been running wild ever since SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan was attacked by his former Team Hell No tag team partner Kane on last week’s Raw.
Shane McMahon has labeled the incident a “setup” and said that there would be “hell to pay.” Did The Big Red Machine act alone? Or did Kurt Angle have a hand in the attack as payback for SmackDown bringing Raw under siege?
Raw crosses the pond to Manchester England this Monday, where the action will kick off with a must-see edition of “Miz TV” featuring GM Kurt Angle as the special guest. Will The Olympic Gold Medalist quell the controversy and answer all concerns? Or will the A-List host simply pour gasoline on an already towering inferno?”
