JBL poker tournament added to WWE Raw

JBL will host a 'high-stakes poker tournament' on Monday's Raw episode.

A new segment has been announced for Monday's WWE Raw episode. 

As announced on Friday's SmackDown show, JBL will host a "high-stakes poker tournament" on Raw. 

The poker tournament plays off a series of backstage skits involving JBL and Corbin playing poker, including a show-long storyline on the November 14 Raw where Akira Tozawa handedly defeated JBL and Baron Corbin in the game. 

JBL returned to WWE television as a regular character in October, serving as a manager to Corbin.

The poker tournament joins an Undisputed WWE Tag Team title match with Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso defending against Matt Riddle and Elias in the lineup for the Monday, December 5 Raw, to be held at the Capital One Arena in Washington DC. 

Here is what is announced for Monday so far: 

WWE Raw, Monday, December 5 --

  • Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. Matt Riddle & Elias
  • JBL hosts a high-stakes poker tournament
