Monday's Raw will feature Cody Rhodes' first televised match on the show since 2016.
WWE has announced that Cody will face The Miz on Raw this Monday. Cody made his return to WWE at WrestleMania 38 night one last Saturday, defeating Seth Rollins.
The former AEW executive vice president then cut a promo on the Raw after WrestleMania. Cody said that, ever since he was a child, his dream was to win the WWE Championship for his father. Cody said he thought that dream died with Dusty Rhodes. But even though Dusty may not physically be here anymore, it's still a dream Cody can accomplish. Cody vowed to do it for the fans, himself, his family, and Dusty.
Rollins appeared after Cody's promo. When they went face-to-face, Cody extended his hand for a handshake. Rollins accepted the handshake, cackled, and told Cody "welcome home." It wasn't clear what Rollins' intentions were.
Cody defeated Kevin Owens in a dark match after the post-WrestleMania Raw went off the air.
The Miz & Logan Paul defeated Rey & Dominik Mysterio at WrestleMania. Following the match, Miz turned against Paul.
WWE has also added a VIP Lounge segment with MVP and Omos to Monday's Raw. After Bobby Lashley defeated Omos at WrestleMania, MVP betrayed Lashley on Raw and aligned with Omos.

- Cody Rhodes vs. The Miz
- AJ Styles vs. Damian Priest
