WWE Raw 6/29 Show Preview
Plenty of wrestling fans are very curious to see how WWE Raw plays out on Monday night after all of the positive COVID-19 tests in the WWE locker room this past week. After seriously testing for the first time since the pandemic started, numerous WWE superstars were found to have the virus. That development severely altered Smackdown this past Friday as that show featured less than one hour of new content.
There are only two segments being advertised for Raw and those are contract signings for two major titles. Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler will sign the contract for their WWE Championship match at the Extreme Rules: The Horror Show event. Also, Asuka and Sasha Banks will sign a contract for their respective match for the Raw Women’s Championship at the same show.
Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler Contract Signing
Raw’s acquisitions for the AJ Styles trade last month were finally revealed last week on Raw. Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode were acquired from the Smackdown brand in the trade and Ziggler quickly made it known where his priorities lie. He interrupted a promo by the WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre, and challenged him to a match for his title. McIntyre and Ziggler have history as they are were once a team and held the Raw Tag Team titles.
The match between the two at Extreme Rules: The Horror Show should be good as both are great in the ring. Not many can match Ziggler’s in-ring skill and this match will help to make McIntyre look even stronger as champion. The contract signing between the two will probably touch on their history and be given significant time on Raw due to the minimal content being promoted at the moment. I also think Robert Roode might make an appearance since he is a known ally of Ziggler. It would also provide another obstacle for the intimidating McIntyre to overcome.
Asuka vs. Sasha Banks Contract Signing
One superstar who has benefited from the screen time they have been getting during the pandemic is Sasha Banks. She has been heavily featured on Smackdown and since winning the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship with Bayley, has been prominently featured on all 3 WWE shows. And boy has she taken advantage of it. It can be argued that Sasha Banks and Bayley are the best thing going in WWE today. They are entertaining in every segment they are in. That is why Banks is next up to challenge Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Sasha Banks and Asuka are two of the best women wrestlers in WWE history and a title match between the two is something all fans want to see. Asuka has been a good champion since obtaining it from Becky Lynch last month but it might be time for her short reign to end. At the moment, Sasha Banks would provide more in that position due to her mic skills and storyline with Bayley. This all seems like it is leading to a winner take all match between Banks and Bayley at Summerslam.
The amount of time given to this contract signing would normally be short due to Asuka’s limited mic skills. But with WWE needing to fill 3 hours of television with a limited roster, this is another segment that will be given more time then needed.
