Two matches, Edge return announced for WWE Raw


Two main event-level matches and a return have been announced for Monday's episode of Raw.

During a commercial that aired on SmackDown tonight, it was announced that WWE Champion Big E will face Kevin Owens in a non-title match on Monday's Raw. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor is also set for the show, along with the return of Edge.

Big E and Owens have been feuding since Big E defeated Owens on Raw three weeks ago. Rollins, who is the number one contender to Big E's WWE Championship, wanted Owens to take out Big E in that match. Big E didn't believe Owens when he said that he didn't know Rollins interfered.

On Raw earlier this week, Big E retained his WWE Championship against Austin Theory after Theory was distracted by Owens and Rollins arguing on the outside. Big E threw Rollins over the announce table after the match and then went after Owens, but Owens got away. Rollins attempted to attack Big E, but Big E gave him the Big Ending.

Rollins laid out Balor in an angle on Raw earlier this week. There was then an incident where Rollins was attacked by a fan as he was heading up the ramp.

Edge's appearance on Monday's Raw will be the first time he's been on WWE programming since defeating Rollins in their Hell in a Cell match at Crown Jewel. It will also be the first time Edge has been on Raw since being drafted to the brand last month.

The UBS Arena in Long Island, New York is hosting Monday's Raw. It will be WWE's debut at the venue, which just opened this month.
