Ladies and gentlemen, we all know how the world feels about Mondays. And that feeling is based around how they all conclude with Monday Night Raw! Tonight, a curious tag team match combines the managerial mights of Lana and Zelina Vega, as they lead Bobby Lashley and Angel Garza in a bout against Rusev and Humberto Carrillo! My name is Jordan Huie, and I’d like to thank you for joining us here at The Overtimer! As always, you can expect the full coverage for tonight’s episode of WWE Raw, including a live recap and results for the show as they come, plus previews for everything you can expect to see tonight!
Rusev & Humberto Carrillo vs. Bobby Lashley & Angel Garza
On one side, we have Lana and Zelina Vega, who I imagine will be getting along fairly well, which would be a rarity for both of them. And one can only assume that together they’ll be quite the annoyance at ringside with some constant interference. That will probably be key here. But there’s a lot of curiosities surrounding this match in general that beg to be touched on.
This is the first time we’ll be seeing Rusev on WWE television in a while. His last appearance was as part of a mixed tag team match which saw him and Liv Morgan taking on Lashley and Lana in a losing effort. He was advertised for the men’s Royal Rumble match but on the show itself, they claimed that he and Lashley got into a backstage brawl that ended up keeping both of them out of it, without actually showing any footage of the incident.
There always seem to be rumors about Rusev and his contract status, and this situation has caused another, as many are discussing a potential on-going dispute between him and the company. He has plenty of reason to be discontent with creative given the lengthy angle he’s been a part of to very little acclaim. Meanwhile, Angel Garza has been appearing both here and on NXT, mostly because he’s a stand-in for Andrade amidst his suspension. It’ll be up soon, as evidenced by him being advertised for Super Show-Down.
I figure the heel team will get the win here, but next week Humberto will defeat Angel in a singles match. The week after that, Andrade will be back to continue the feud.
