SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE Raw TV Preview 6/27
WWE returns to Tampa, Florida for live Raw counting down the weeks to the Brand Split.
Raw is centered on Week 2 of Dean Ambrose as new WWE World Hvt. champion following his title victory at Money in the Bank last Sunday.
Included is hype for Ambrose’s first WWE Title defense at the Battleground PPV in July. However, WWE faces the situation where one-third of the next WWE Title match is absent from TV – Roman Reigns due to a 30-day suspension – leaving Ambrose and Seth Rollins to hype the title match.
WWE will also continue building the A.J. Styles vs. John Cena, potentially setting up the re-match after Styles won the first match at MITB.
Plus, Shane and Stephanie McMahon continue to battle for control of WWE TV heading into the brand split. Both are advertised for Raw.
The full list of advertised stars includes Ambrose, Rollins, Cena, Styles, and The Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows). Plus, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, Sheamus, and Alberto Del Rio.
For the live crowd in Tampa, WWE is advertising Dean Ambrose’s title in jeopardy.
