We’ve finally made it to SummerSlam week and just five days before the spectacle at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium, tonight’s “go-home” edition of Monday Night Raw will emanate from the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
Expect to see them put the finishing touches on several of the marquee matches heading into Saturday’s pay-per-view extravaganza.
How to watch
Date: Monday, August 9
Time: 8 p.m. ET
Live stream: USANetwork.com/live or USA Network App
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and Goldberg have gone back-and-forth on the mic for the past month and the two will go face-to-face one final time before their title clash in Las Vegas this Saturday night. A notable thing is that the two have yet to actually get physical in the leadup to this, so we’ll see if they’ll finally come to blows tonight.
Randy Orton made his return last week and after dispatching of Raw Tag Team Champion AJ Styles in one-on-one competition, he ended the show by delivering his patented RKO to tag-team partner Riddle. We’re assuming that wasn’t the full mark of a heel turn (yet) as Orton is scheduled to compete in a singles match against Styles’ tag partner Omos tonight, possibly setting up a tag title bout on Saturday.
Also on the show, Drew McIntyre has had his hands full with former friend Jinder Mahal since Money in the Bank and the two former WWE Champions are on a collision course for a match at SummerSlam. Before the showdown in Vegas, McIntyre will face Mahal’s henchmen Shanky and Veer in a two-on-one handicap match tonight.
And after weeks of trading blows in matches against each other, we’ll see what Raw Women’s Champion Nikki A.S.H., Charlotte Flair, and Rhea Ripley will have in store ahead of their triple threat match for Nikki’s title at SummerSlam this Saturday.
