A pair of title matches are set for tonight's episode of Raw.

WWE has announced that the United States Championship and Raw Tag Team titles will both be on the line on Raw tonight. Damian Priest will defend his United States title against Apollo Crews, while Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode will challenge RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) for the Raw Tag Team titles.

Priest and RK-Bro have both held their respective titles since SummerSlam. Priest won the United States Championship from Sheamus at that pay-per-view. RK-Bro won the Raw Tag Team titles from AJ Styles & Omos.

It appeared that Crews was going to answer Priest's United States title open challenge last week. Crews interrupted Priest on the show but then declined to face him. Crews said he would decimate Priest when they do face off. Crews said he'll show the entire world that Priest isn't fit to be United States Champion.

Priest instead retained the United States title against Sami Zayn last Monday.

While dressed up like Orton, Riddle defeated Ziggler in a singles match last week.

Tonight's Raw is taking place at the UBS Arena in Long Island, New York. Here's the updated card for the show:

  • Non-title match: WWE Champion Big E vs. Kevin Owens
  • Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor
  • Edge returns
  • United States Champion Damian Priest defends against Apollo Crews
  • Raw Tag Team Champions RK-Bro defend against Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode
