WWE Raw Preview (5/3) – Sonya Deville and Charlotte Flair Target Rhea Ripley, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler Defend the Women’s Tag Team Championship against Naomi and Lana; AJ Styles and Omos Face The New Day (Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston) in a WrestleMania Rematch for the Raw Tag Team Championship
WWE Raw Preview are ready for some interesting moments tonight, and we’re trying to figure out exactly what to believe or not, and we think that’s what the WWE wants.
For months, they’ve offered little to no insight to what they had scheduled each week, and even changed some matches seemingly on the fly.
It’s nothing new, especially since they seem to want to promote the WWE brand more than any superstar, but it is what it is.
Deville and Flair’s plan
Tonight’s no different as we’ve been teased that Sonya Deville and Charlotte Flair will reveal more of their pact as they set their sights on Raw Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley.
While Flair has been cutting phenomenal promos and she’s arguably the best talent in the WWE, we’re not ready to see her back in the championship picture again.
While there are few that’ll make Ripley shine as bright as Flair can, it just feels like we’ve seen this movie a dozen or so times over the last couple of years.
We’re not taking anything from Flair, but we’re more interesting in Deville’s possible in ring return and her getting the push she deserves. Could this be the start of that?
We’ll find out tonight as they continue their power grab in the office and ring. Flair may feel stale in the championship scene, but we’re still excited to see exactly what she’s got planned for Ripley and Deville.
Unexpected and unannounced
This match came totally out of the blue thanks to Lana’s Instagram account where she showed a video of her training for tonight’s championship match.
We’ve been waiting for her and Naomi to get another shot at Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, but this is surprising since we expect Jax and Baszler to defend against Tamina and Natalya at Backlash.
This doesn’t mean things won’t change, but it feel unlikely Jax and Baszler will lose. This should be a fun and exciting match, assuming Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke don’t come out for the third week in a row.
AJ Styles and Omos vs. the New Day for Raw Tag Team Championship
WWE Raw Preview haven’t seen AJ Styles and Omos since they won the Raw Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 37.
So, of course their return coincides with a WrestleMania rematch and title defense.
It’ll be fun to see how much Styles and Omos have grown over the last few weeks. We assume they were working to fine tune their team work and Omos some more, which makes this an exciting match.
We’d love to see Styles and Omos prevail and hold onto the tag titles, but the New Day are perennial tag champions and now they’ll have a better idea of what they’ll be facing.
Will that be enough for them to get around Omos to pin Styles? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
