WWE Raw 6/8 Show Preview
It’s the last Raw before Backlash and like most go-home shows, this one looks to be very promo heavy. No matches have been advertised for this edition of Raw which is very rare. Raw has not been the most entertaining show in wrestling lately and by not advertising any matches, it doesn’t look like this week will buck the trend.
Raw has however promoted plenty of talking segments for the June 8 show. Christian will be returning to host the Peep Show and his guest will be his best friend, Edge. They will talking about Edge’s match at Backlash against Randy Orton which is being billed as “The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever.” Also on Raw, MVP is back with another edition of the VIP Lounge with his guest being his client, Bobby Lashley. After Lashley’s attack on WWE Champion Drew McIntyre last week to end Raw, you can expect the champion to be close by. Lastly, the new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, Bayley & Sasha Banks, will be making an appearance on Raw after winning the titles on this past episode of Smackdown.
The Peep Show Featuring Edge
When they were a tag team in the late 90s and early 2000s, Edge & Christian were one the most entertaining tag teams of all time. They are also in the discussion of greatest tag team of all time, having acquired the tag titles on seven different occasions. That is why Raw is bringing back Christian, ahead of Edge’s big match against Randy Orton at Backlash, to host his talk show, “The Peep Show.” It’s only fitting that one of the greatest tag teams of all time talk about a match that is being billed as “The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever.”
Christian has history with Randy Orton as well so expect an appearance from him during this segment. Orton and Christian battled many times for the World Heavyweight Championship while they were both apart of Smackdown years ago. Christian seems like the right guy to analyze the match between Edge and Orton. Expect some things to get physical if Orton does appear during this segment. Christian taking an RKO from Orton could make things more personal between the men.
VIP Lounge Featuring Lashley
The VIP Lounge with MVP is back and this week, Bobby Lashley is the guest. Lashley will face WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre, at Backlash for the WWE Championship. Since aligning with MVP less than a month ago, Lashley has looked like an unstoppable monster. This is the Lashley that fans have been waiting for since his return to WWE in 2018. It just shows that WWE has a hard time figuring out their own superstars.
This VIP Lounge will probably enforce the idea that Lashley is now unbeatable with MVP at his side and that he has a real shot of dethroning the champ. Raw went off the air last week with Lashley overpowering McIntyre so expect the champion to be looking for revenge. McIntyre has been booked strong so it won’t take long for him to get back at Lashley and MVP.
