WWE Raw Preview: Christian Returns, Charlotte vs. Asuka, Sasha & Bayley Announcement & more


-- WWE has already announced a loaded show for tonight's Monday Night Raw. Here's what is on tap for the episode:

Edge to join Christian for “The Peep Show”

Christian will return to Raw tonight to host a special edition of “The Peep Show,” with his longtime friend and tag team partner Edge as the guest.

The Rated-R Superstar is preparing for what may be The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever against Randy Orton, with The Viper gloating about setting the perfect trap for the WWE Hall of Famer. What will Edge have to say just six days before WWE Backlash?

Bayley & Sasha Banks set to appear on Raw fresh off Women’s Tag Title victory

The blue brand belongs to Bayley & Sasha Banks, but the “role models” are far from content. The newly-crowned Women’s Tag Team Champions are set to appear on Raw tonight after defeating Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross to reclaim the titles.

Never short on proclamations, the double champion & The Boss are set to divulge an impending announcement on the red brand.

What will Bayley & Banks have to say following their clutch triumph over Bliss & Cross. How will the Raw Superstars respond to the presence of the Women’s Tag Team Champions?

Will Rey Mysterio retire?

The Monday Night Messiah has used both brutal and persuasive tactics to try and spur on the retirement of a WWE legend, but Rey Mysterio responded with a clear statement: “Damn you, Seth Rollins.” Now the iconic Superstar will appear on Monday Night Raw.

Rollins carried out an incomprehensible attack on Mysterio’s eye, using the steel steps to put the legendary luchador’s career in jeopardy, and the response from Mysterio and his son last week left more questions than answers. Dominik left an impassioned message of his own as he promised Rollins “an eye for an eye.”

Will Mysterio be ready to answer the questions surrounding his retirement, and will the animosity with Rollins continue to escalate?

The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders set for decathlon in latest chapter of competition

The Olympic Decathlon traditionally helps crown “The World’s Greatest Athlete” with tests of strength and speed across 10 events. On Monday Night, it could decipher who is Raw’s greatest tag team, as the event will be the next step in the ongoing “Anything You Can Do, We Can Do Better” competition between The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders.

The teams are tied at two wins apiece after basketball, axe throwing, golf and bowling competitions. Each team has shined in the various exhibitions of skill, but who can maintain the excellence across 10 grueling events?

Tune in to Monday Night Raw at 8/7 C on the USA Network to a competition for the ages between The Street Profits and The Viking Raiders.

Bobby Lashley heads to the VIP Lounge to reveal what happened after last week’s Raw

The final image of last week’s Raw saw Drew McIntyre ambushed by his WWE Backlash challenger Bobby Raw Women’s Champion Asuka welcomes rematch with Charlotte FlairLashley. With the Full Nelson locked in, the WWE Universe was left to wonder what happened to the WWE Champion.

The All Mighty is prepared to fill in the blanks, as Lashley joins MVP in the VIP Lounge on tonight on Raw.

What exactly happened as the red brand faded to black, and is it a sign of things to come at WWE Backlash?

Raw Women’s Champion Asuka welcomes rematch with Charlotte Flair

Even with a WWE Backlash showdown against Nia Jax looming, Asuka still can’t shake her rivalry with Charlotte Flair as they'll meet tonight.

The Raw Women’s Champion battled The Queen last week on Raw only to have her upcoming challenger emerge to derail the clash. Jax wasn’t satisfied with simply mocking her WWE Backlash opponent, as she later demolished her with a charge down the ramp.

Flair will also be motivated after losing the NXT Women’s Title at NXT TakeOver: In Your House. Perhaps a rematch with one her most heated rivals is exactly what The Queen needs to put her back on a championship course.

Who will write the next chapter in this classic rivalry?

Tune in to Monday Night Raw tonight at 8/7 C on the USA Network to see who emerges victorious between The Empress and The Queen.
