Powell’s POV: Oddly enough, the official WWE.com preview does not mention the Nakamura vs. Corbin match. I listed it above because it was advertised repeatedly on Raw. The preview did note that Dillinger is getting the non-title match because he was so impressive in the battle royal, which is a bit of a reach considering that Styles and Sami Zayn lasted longer than he did. Join Jake Barnett for live coverage as the show airs on USA Network at 7CT/8ET.
