WWE Raw Preview is set for Raw’s Go Home episode for WrestleMania and it looks like we’re going to have some fun moments tonight.
Last week, King Corbin appeared on Raw and attacked Drew McIntyre from behind to help Bobby Lashley get the upper hand and attempt to take McIntyre out of his championship match at WrestleMania.
This week, Corbin will look to finish the job and take McIntyre out and step into his place against Lashley for the WWE Championship.
Corbin has the ability to defeat McIntyre and claim his spot, but we don’t see that happening. All indications are McIntyre will win tonight and defeat Lashley at WrestleMania to win the WWE title.
The reason is it’s been rumored that Vince McMahon wants McIntyre to have this WrestleMania moment in front of fans, and while that’s great, we think Lashley should have a year long run.
Similar how to McIntyre should’ve before that was botched with Randy Orton, in WWE Raw Preview’s opinion.
Bobby Lashley vs. Cedric Alexander
The destruction of the fan favorite faction, The Hurt Business, will conclude tonight when Lashley destroys Alexander.
As much as we’d love to see Alexander put up a good fight, we don’t see him coming as close as Shelton Benjamin did last week in stopping Lashley.
How much Benjamin interferes will decide how long the match will continue, but there’s no way Lashley will lose straight up going into WrestleMania.
We could see Benjamin attacking Lashley and getting Alexander disqualified, or McIntyre running in and ending it in no contest, but aside from that it’s going to be brutal.
Cedric Alexander and Shelton Benjamin deserve better than to be tossed aside to close out the Hurt Business.
Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax vs. Asuka and Rhea Ripley
WWE Raw Preview doesn’t expect this to be a match of anything noteworthy as it’s simply a way to further hype up Asuka and Ripley’s Raw Women’s Championship match for WrestleMania.
We expect the match to have some great moments and Baszler and Ripley are in the ring together once again, but it’ll end in a DQ or Ripley will knock Asuka out and walk away and Asuka will be pinned.
To be fair, this is pretty much what the last few tag team matches have been like in general. We’re supposed to focus more on the guest commentators or a particular team.
It’s been done to death over the last couple of months, and we expect it to follow the same path once more.
Of course, there will probably also be a run in afterwards of the women’s tag division to create a fatal four way or elimination style of match for the Women’s tag titles at WrestleMania.
