RAW Predictions 05.04
Drew McIntyre has a scheduled match with Buddy Murphy. Murphy came to defend Seth Rollins when Drew shoved Rollins's head down and slammed his face to the table. Murphy got the claymore of his lifetime. Tonight, it will be a showdown.
Prediction-Should this match is the main event, I expect Rollins to interfere and curb stomp Drew before the show ends. It will protect Murphy from an added loss and build the storyline between him and Drew.
The RAW Women's Division MITB participants are Asuka, Nia Jax, and Shaya Baszler. There is a much more build-up between Asuka and Shayna Baszler than Becky Lynch or Jax. Moreover, Asuka would want to put her hands on Jax for defeating Kairi Sane twice in back to back weeks.
MITB is this Sunday. They will create chaos tonight.
RAW Tag Team Champions
The Street Profits are the current RAW Tag Team Champions. As stated on the podcast and previous blogs, the Street Profits need to prove that they are the legit champions. They have never defeated the Viking Raiders in their careers.
For the Viking Raiders, they lost their titles from Seth Rollins and Buddy Murphy. They never had the opportunity to have a rematch to reclaim their titles. Tonight, they will have that opportunity.
Prediction: The match can go either way. Will Bianca Belair be at the SP's corner? Would this match switch each other's role in the WWE and be a heel? Being that there is no word that this match would continue to be a card at MITB, I would not be surprised if the Viking Raiders win the titles back.
Besides, these two tag teams can battle it out for a while unless Zelina Vega or 2 Fly Crew beg for an opportunity like the Smackdown division.
Liv Morgan made a direct promo about her plans. She defeated Ruby Riott twice, so we hope the storyline has ended. Becky Lynch does not have an opponent. Could we see Morgan vs. Lynch match tonight or a setup for next week? Morgan's goal is to win the big prize, the WWE RAW Women's Championship.
Tag Team Match:
2 Fly Crew vs. Brendan Vink & Shane Thorne
Cedric Alexander and Ricochet defeated Vink and Thorne on the episode of Monday Night RAW, April 20. They meet again tonight, which will have the same outcome.
This match will be for the last qualifying spot of the MITB Ladder match. No participants have been announced. Therefore, here is my prediction:
The rumor is for AJ Styles to return. With WWE ratings going down each week, Styles appearance can help boost up and maybe the favorite to win.
