AJ Styles vs. Cedric Alexander added to WWE Raw


Another match has been added to the lineup for Monday's episode of Raw at Madison Square Garden.

WWE has announced that United States Champion AJ Styles will face Cedric Alexander in a non-title match on the show. It comes after an angle where The O.C. (Styles, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson) attacked Alexander while he was doing a backstage interview on this week's Raw.

After the attack, Alexander lost to Baron Corbin in the quarterfinals of WWE's King of the Ring tournament. In the semifinals of the tournament, Corbin will face Ricochet and Samoa Joe in a triple threat match on Monday's Raw.

WWE has yet to announce who will challenge for Styles' US title at Clash of Champions. The pay-per-view is taking place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 15.

Monday's Raw is the go-home show for Clash of Champions. Rey Mysterio vs. Gran Metalik is set for the episode. Steve Austin will also appear and moderate a contract signing for Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman's Universal Championship match at Clash of Champions.
