  • *special announcement

Tonight on Monday Night Raw, viewers will have a treat to watch epic matches.  First, the retirement ceremony of Rey Mysterio.  Mysterio was involved in a tag team match when he suffered a critical eye injury by the hands of Rollins.  With Rollins as the host of the ceremony, it leaves questions as to what will really happen in the ring.  Will Mysterio retire?  Will his son make his debut in Raw? What is the motive on having Rollins host Mysterio's retirement ceremony?  The suspense is outrageous and cannot wait to find out.

In addition, Aleister Black has a set match with Rollins.  Maybe, the angle is for Black to cut a promo and somehow disrupt the ceremony and have an all out battle.  Both Black and Rollins are on top of the Raw roster.  It may be debatable that the two have more hype than the WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.  With that in mind, the match between Black and Rollins should be protected and either have a disqualification match or change the match to another tag team match.  I smell a curve ball coming on this segment.  

United States Champion Apollo Crews is set to defend his title for the first time.  His opponent has not been mentioned.  Who could he be?  Andrade, Angel Garza, or maybe a new superstar, Dominik Dijakovic.  If Vince is not happy about Crews being champion, Dijakovic may be the guy to go in strong to Raw.  If not, a new feud can develop with Garza.  Last week, Garza was observing Andrade and Crews' match.  

Champion vs. Champion

Asuka and Charlotte will square off again but this time both will fight as champions.  This will be their seventh singles competition in their careers.  Charlotte leads with three wins, 1 loss, and two disqualifications.  Here are the notable matches:

November 25, 2019 - Asuka defeated Charlotte

March 26, 2019 - Charlotte defeated Asuka to win the Smackdown Women's Championship

WrestleMania 34 - Charlotte defeated Asuka to break Asuka's undefeated streak and remain the Smackdown Women's Champion.  

Other storylines that can happen on Raw tonight:

MVP and The Street Profits - MVP had some words with the tag team champions about being serious.  It was similar on how Bianca Belair mentioned upon her arrival to the brand.  How will that feed with The Viking Raiders.

Drew McIntyre and Bobby Lashley

Will Nia Jax interfere with Champion vs. Champion match?

The Iiconics seek for another opportunity with the Women's tag team champions Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross.  Or will the Iiconics have a fall out again?  

Where is Shayna Baszler?  After her win over Natalya, she has not been seen on television.  Is it a coincident that when Baszler is on TV, there is no Charlotte, but when Charlotte is on screen, there is no Baszler.  Pay close attention.  

What do you think may happen tonight on Monday Night Raw?
