US title number one contender's match added to WWE Raw

Samoa Joe's challenger for Stomping Grounds will be decided on Monday's Raw.

WWE has announced a fatal five-way match between Braun Strowman, The Miz, Ricochet, Cesaro, and Bobby Lashley for the episode. The winner will challenge for Joe's United States title at Stomping Grounds on June 23.

Strowman, Miz & Ricochet defeated Joe, Cesaro & Lashley on this week's Raw. Ricochet pinned Cesaro in that match.

Joe lost the US title to Rey Mysterio at Money in the Bank last month, but Mysterio relinquished the title back to Joe on the June 3 edition of Raw due to Mysterio having a legitimate shoulder injury. Joe's shoulder was also up when Mysterio pinned him at Money in the Bank.

Monday's Raw is taking place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California and is the go-home show for Stomping Grounds. WWE is advertising that Baron Corbin will reveal who the special guest referee will be for his Universal Championship match against Seth Rollins at the pay-per-view.

Daniel Bryan will also be appearing on Monday's Raw as one of the Wild Card rule wrestlers.
