Released superstar returns for huge storyline, Surprising title change to happen? (August 15th, 2022)


Welcome to this week’s edition of RAW Preview. It’s RAW’s third episode in just half a month, and we couldn’t be more excited given the direction of the new WWE regime.

Returns, surprises and big moves have been made on both RAW and SmackDown. The red brand is undoubtedly a nicer show this year, despite not having a world champion for over four months.

So what’s happening on RAW this week? Keep reading to find out:

#5. What is Dexter Lumis’ involvement in the car accident on RAW last week?

What will be the ramifications of Dexter Lumis' surprising return/debut last week?
What will be the ramifications of Dexter Lumis’ surprising return/debut last week?

Dexter Lumis was one of many names on the WWE release list, with fans saddened by his release. With Vince McMahon gone, Triple H has had some of the big names re-signed, and Dexter Lumis is one of them.

The car accident storyline began last week, and there was a lot of mystery surrounding who could have been behind it. AJ Styles defeated The Miz in RAW’s main event, and as he celebrated it, he was taken by surprise by what was happening in the front row of the crowd. Dexter Lumis, with a crazy look in his eyes, was forcibly led away by security.

While there was no confirmation he was behind the car accident, adding two and two meant he was the first person suspected of it. The star will now play a major role.

#4. Bobby Lashley defends US title against AJ Styles in first ever game

Bobby Lashley has his second US title defense in seven days and his third in just over 15 days. He is an active champion and last week he successfully defended the American title against Ciampa in an instant classic.

The Miz almost helped Ciampa win, but AJ Styles came out to counter The Miz, and it looks like he’s being rewarded for that. Unfortunately, there has been no build-up to this match — one that some would consider WrestleMania-worthy.

It would be somewhat surprising, but a title change is very important given the caliber of Styles.

#3. Alexa Bliss & Asuka take on Nikki ASH & Doudrop in the Women’s Tag Team Title Tournament

Who moves on and who drops out?
Who will continue and who will drop out?

The Women’s Tag Team tournament continues this week as Nikki ASH and Doudrop will team up to take on the newly formed team of Asuka and Alexa Bliss. Asuka and Bliss have been aligned with RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair in her feud against Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky. Kai and Sky have also progressed through the tournament and the trio will face Belair, Asuka and Bliss at Clash at the Castle.

It will be interesting to see who wins the first round of the tournament. Asuka and Bliss are undoubtedly expected to be victorious, but the presence of Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky could change that.

#2. What does The Judgment Day have in store for The Mysterios?

Last week, Finn Balor defeated Rey Mysterio again. Rhea Ripley also made another insult for the injury when she dragged out a beaten up Dominik Mysterio who was expected to be ringside with his father.

Damian Priest also called for a match against Edge at the red mark on August 22 in Toronto, Canada. It will be Edge’s first game in Canada in more than twelve and a half years.

What will The Judgment Day have in store, a week before the first ever match takes place?

#1. Riddle for an exclusive interview on RAW

The King of Brothers will make its first RAW appearance in a while. His last appearance in WWE was just over 15 days ago at SummerSlam 2022. Although his match against Seth Rollins was postponed due to injury, Riddle still called out his opponent before inevitably being eliminated.

We have an exclusive interview with the former Tag Team champion this week where he will presumably provide an update on his health and when he returns to the ring.

We just asked The Shockmaster about Vince McMahon’s retirement here
