Powell’s POV: WWE has announced that Corbin will select the special referee for the WWE Universal Championship match on tonight’s Raw. Tony Nese is expected to defend the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Akira Tozawa and Drew Gulak, but the actual match has not been made official. Samoa Joe will defend the U.S. Championship against the winner of a five-way match that will be held on tonight’s Raw involving Ricochet, The Miz, Cesaro, Bobby Lashley, and Braun Strowman. Join me for live coverage of WWE Stomping Grounds on Sunday beginning with the one-hour Kickoff Show at 5CT/6CT, and the four-hour main show at 6CT/7ET. Jake Barnett and I will team up for a Dot Net Members’ exclusive audio review afterward.
