A big match was announced for RAW tonight that features two bitter old rivals going against each other for gold. The Visionary Seth Rollins will defend his United States title, for the first time since winning it last week, against his old foe Matt Riddle.

They have been going at it since July, using personal slurs, brawling backstage and in the ring. They were going to square off at SummerSlam, but Riddle got injured. Later on, they faced each other at Clash At The Castle, where Rollins was victorious. In an Extreme Rules rematch, Riddle made him tap out inside the Fight Pit. This upcoming match should presumably be their third and final encounter.
Seth had won the title on last week’s RAW when he defeated Bobby Lashley. A returning Brock Lesnar brutally attacked Lashley before his match with Rollins.

Seth took advantage of a visibly injured Lashley and provoked him into continuing with the scheduled title match. Lashley tried to show some offensive but Rollins quickly put him away.
Other RAW Attractions
Brock Lesnar will make an appearance tonight after Lashley called him out last week. They will probably have a match at the Crown Jewel Pay per view at Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The creepy Dexter Lumis will finally face The Miz, after stalking him for weeks, in an attempt to win himself a WWE contract.
Also Elias is returning in his old avatar with the guitar. Kevin Owens brutally assaulted his brother Ezekiel (Elias himself) and we haven’t heard from him since.
The Good brothers Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows also returned on last week’s RAW. They helped their old compatriot A J Styles repel The Judgment Day. This week we should see more of them on the episode.
A big monster match is also in the making. The Nigerian Giant Omos showed up on SmackDown to challenge The Monster of All Monsters, Braun Strowman. It should be Strowman’s turn to put the Giant on notice this week.
