WWE Raw TV Preview 9/26
WWE has immediate fall-out from the Clash of Champions PPV on Monday’s Raw from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Included is follow-up on Kevin Owens retaining the Universal Title against Seth Rollins following interference from Chris Jericho, a ref bump, and Rollins scoring a visual three count.
Just below the main event level is Roman Reigns as new U.S. champion after beating Rusev for the title. WWE has five weeks until the next Raw PPV, creating the question of when Rusev will get his title re-match.
Also needing to be sorted out is how the Best-of-Seven Series between Sheamus and Cesaro will be resolved. Their deciding match ended without a winner at the Clash PPV, creating a potential re-match on Raw.
The full roster advertised for Raw includes Owens, Reigns, Rusev, Jericho, Rollins, and Enzo Amore & Big Cass, who were not on the PPV.
Advertised for the live crowd in Cincy is a bonus main event of Reigns & Enzo & Cass vs. Owens & Jericho & Rusev in a six-man tag match.
