The following matches and segments are announced for Monday’s WWE Raw television show, which will be held in Washington, D.C. at Capital One Arena.
-WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar appears
-Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio.
-Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair vs. “Riott Squad” Ruby Riott, Liv Morgan, and Sarah Logan.
Powell’s POV: Angle’s match is billed as his final match on the Raw television series. The stipulation of the women’s match is that if Rousey, Lynch, or Flair betray one another, they will lose their “opportunity” at WrestleMania. I would actually love to see Rousey’s character blow off the silly stipulation by attacking her teammates and then dare WWE officials to pull her from the WrestleMania main event. Instead, I assume they will win the match and then go at one another.
