Triple threat number one contender's match set for WWE Raw


A triple threat match that will determine the next challenger for the WWE championship has been set for next week’s Raw.

AJ Styles, Riddle, and Keith Lee will meet on Raw next week. The winner will face Drew McIntyre for the championship.

Tonight’s show had Styles, Riddle, Lee, Sheamus, Randy Orton, and Bobby Lashley all make their claims to facing McIntyre next. WWE official Adam Pearce later announced three singles matches, with the winners of those matches advancing to next week's triple threat match.

Braun Strowman also said that he wanted the next title match. However, he was escorted from the building after he attacked Pearce in the opening segment. Dave Meltzer reported this afternoon that Strowman is scheduled to be McIntyre’s opponent at TLC.

Riddle was able to beat Sheamus by cradling him as Sheamus applied a cloverleaf. Lee won his match against Lashley by DQ after MVP ran in and attacked Lee, with the idea that he was protecting Lashley from being pinned.

In the main event, Randy Orton faced AJ Styles. The Fiend Bray Wyatt made an appearance, distracting Orton in the process. This allowed Styles to pin Orton following the Phenomenal forearm.
