Two matches have been announced for next week’s WrestleMania 37 go-home edition of Raw.
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will take on Cedric Alexander in a non-title match on Raw next Monday. This stems from tonight’s Raw, where Lashley kicked Alexander and Shelton Benjamin out of The Hurt Business. Lashley said he felt that Alexander and Benjamin had let him down the previous week after they lost a two-on-one handicap match to Drew McIntyre. After a confrontation tonight, Lashley said as far as he was concerned, The Hurt Business was over when it comes to Alexander and Benjamin.
Later, Benjamin said he wanted a match with Lashley on tonight’s show. Alexander said that he wanted what was left of Lashley for next week’s Raw. Benjamin ended up losing to Lashley in under five minutes.
Lashley is defending his WWE Championship against McIntyre at WrestleMania 37 night one on Saturday, April 10.
A non-title match between WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax and the team of WrestleMania opponents Asuka & Rhea Ripley is also set for next Monday's Raw. Asuka and Ripley were taking part in a contract signing for their Raw Women's Championship match at WrestleMania 37 on tonight's show when Ripley threw the table at Asuka, taking her out. Jax and Baszler then came out and challenged the two for a match for next week. Ripley, despite taking out Asuka, accepted the challenge.
Asuka vs. Ripley for the Raw Women's Championship will be part of the WrestleMania 37 night two card on Sunday, April 11.
