John Cena vs. Braun Strowman set for WWE Raw tonight


Though WWE has a big week planned with a loaded episode of SmackDown and the Mae Young Classic finals on Tuesday, there hadn't been much advertised in advance for Raw tonight.

That changed this afternoon as WWE uploaded a video with Cathy Kelley running down what to expect on the show, including a first-time ever singles meeting between John Cena and Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns vs. Jason Jordan, an appearance by Brock Lesnar, and Enzo Amore guest starring on Miz TV to discuss challenging Neville at No Mercy.

Reigns facing Jordan is a result of the storyline where he wasn't impressed with how long it took Cena to defeat Jordan last week.

With No Mercy now less than two weeks away, tonight's Raw will continue building to the pay-per-view ahead of next week's go-home show. Tonight is also the first time that WWE will face competition from the NFL this season, with the New Orleans Saints vs. Minnesota Vikings and Los Angeles Chargers vs. Denver Broncos set for Monday Night Football.
