After being toppled by Charlotte Flair in singles action two weeks ago, Raw Women’s Champion Nikki A.S.H. was able to get a modicum of revenge last week by defeating Flair in a No Holds Barred match during last week’s show. As a result, Flair is scheduled to address A.S.H on the mic tonight ahead of their scheduled triple threat match with Rhea Ripley at SummerSlam.
Also scheduled to speak during tonight’s episode is WWE Champion Bobby Lashley. In Chicago last week, the champ once again turned down Goldberg’s challenge for a title match at SummerSlam before confronting the WWE Hall of Famer’s son Gage in the crowd. This prompted Goldberg to deliver a vicious spear to Lashley’s manager MVP on the ramp. After that attack, we’ll see if Lashley finally accepts Goldberg’s challenge tonight.
The headliner of the evening is the return of Randy Orton, who has been off television since before the Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Last week, his tag team partner Riddle was dispatched of Omos, one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions. We’ll see what the Viper has store for the Orlando crowd and if we’ll see him formally issue a challenge to Omos and A.J. Styles for the belts at SummerSlam.
