Powell’s POV: Reigns vs. Seth Rollins is still not officially advertised despite the big tease for the match on Smackdown. Lynch will defend her title against the winner of the Triple Threat match featuring Bianca Belair vs. Liv Morgan vs. Doudrop that will be held tonight on Raw. Impact Wrestling’s Scott D’Amore announced that Mickie James has permission to wear the Knockouts Championship to the Rumble.
