Additional notes by Bryan Rose
A big Universal title match will headline tonight's Raw.
Fightful.com has reported on the script for tonight's Raw. Although the script did not have any mention of Paul Heyman or Brock Lesnar, Heyman did appear on tonight's show invoking Brock Lesnar's rematch clause.
The show will be promoted around Roman Reigns vs. Finn Balor for the Universal title. Reigns came out to start the show and challenged Finn Balor to a Universal title match. Balor came out to accept, and the match was made for later tonight when Kurt Angle came out and overruled Constable Corbin, who didn't want the match to happen.
There is a Stephanie McMahon segment that will include Ronda Rousey, and a HHH segment on the show.
The match lineup for tonight is:
- Bobby Lashley vs. Baron Corbin
- Bayley & Sasha Banks & Ember Moon vs. Riott Squad
- Dean Ambrose vs. Drew McIntyre
- Curt Hawkins vs. Elias
- Titus O'Neil & Apollo Crews vs Authors of Pain
- Bo Dallas vs. Scott Dawson
- Reigns vs. Balor for Universal title
