Fatal five-way number one contender's match set for WWE Raw
A fatal five-way number one contender’s match is set for tomorrow’s episode of Raw.
WWE has announced that AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Ricochet, Rey Mysterio, and Robert Roode will face off in the number one contender’s match. The winner will challenge for Seth Rollins’ Universal Championship on what’s being billed as Raw’s season premiere next week (September 30).
Rollins defending his Universal title against The Fiend in a Hell in a Cell match has been announced for WWE’s Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. The PPV is taking place in Sacramento, California on October 6.
The Chase Center in San Francisco, California is hosting both Raw and SmackDown this week. A new edition of Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House, Sasha Banks vs. Nikki Cross, and Baron Corbin vs. Chad Gable have also been made official for Raw.
Bayley will be in Banks’ corner tomorrow, while Cross will have Alexa Bliss in her corner.
Corbin vs. Gable is a rematch of last week’s King of the Ring finals, where Corbin defeated Gable to win the tournament. Gable then ruined Corbin’s coronation on SmackDown the next night.
