A second match is set for Raw.
Another match big match has been officially announced for this Monday’s episode of Raw in Omaha, NE at the CenturyLink Center on the USA Network. WWE has booked a Steel Cage match between The Big Show and Braun Strowman for the show.
The other match that has been announced will be a title match. Make no mistake about it, WWE is stacking up this show and they have a good reason as to why to do this. They are holding a live show on a holiday. In the United States, we have Labor Day and historically, WWE doesn’t pull in the best of ratings on this holiday.
Jeff Hardy won a Battle Royal on this past week’s episode of Raw to become the new #1 contender for the Intercontinental Title. Hardy will challenge The Miz for the title on this edition of Monday Night Raw.
A few different things could play out here. Miz could cheat his way to victory over Hardy on Raw, and they set up a rematch at No Mercy. Or they could have Hardy go over on Raw and Miz cashes in his rematch at the upcoming pay-per-view event.
WWE wrote the following in their Raw preview:
“Universal Champion Brock Lesnar might want to take Braun Strowman to Suplex City at WWE No Mercy on Sept. 24, but first, as first reported by Cathy Kelley in a WWE.com Exclusive video, The Monster Among Men will climb into a steel cage with Big Show, live on Raw.
When Strowman and the giant last collided one-on-one, the juggernauts caused the ring to collapse under their combined weight after a massive superplex by The Gift of Destruction. We can only imagine what kind of havoc they will unleash on each other — and their surroundings — when they enter the unforgiving steel.
One can only hope that the structure is reinforced for what should be a brutal confrontation. Can Big Show end Strowman’s seemingly unstoppable rampage, or will The Monster Among Men send a grisly message to The Beast Incarnate, who will no doubt be paying close attention to the carnage?
Don’t miss this titanic showdown live on Raw, beginning at 8/7 C on USA Network.”
