From WWE.com:

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt’s attack on Seth Rollins at WWE Clash of Champions was a shocking development and foreshadowed a dark new challenge for the Universal Champion. As the two rivals prepare for their showdown at WWE Hell in a Cell, Wyatt returns with an all new edition of “Firefly Fun House.” Will Huskus the Pig Boy or Mercy Buzzard calm their friend’s nerves or will “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt have a new warning for The Beastslayer? Look for possible clues on a new edition of “Firefly Fun House.”

That’s all WWE has advertised so far for Raw. They will likely announce more matches on Monday afternoon on social media.

WALTER Challenges KUSHIDA to Find Tag Team Partners & Meet Him in the Ring

In case you missed it, this past week’s huge two-hour live debut of WWE NXT on the USA Network saw the arrival of WWE United Kingdom Champion and Austrian powerhouse WALTER, and his faction of international stars.

The group collectively known as Imperium consists of Alexander Wolfe, formerly a member of Sanity, as well as Germany’s Marcel Barthel and Italian Superstar Fabian Aichner. All four made their presence felt on Wednesday at Full Sail University, before coming face-to-face with former New Japan junior heavyweight ace KUSHIDA.

WALTER is featured in a new backstage interview, which you can check out below, where he challenges KUSHIDA to find two partners and meet Imperium in a six-man tag team match on the upcoming two-hour edition of WWE NXT.

It’s unknown at this time who KUSHIDA might find to help him out as he heads into battle. It’s maybe worth mentioning that he teamed with Jordan Myles (fka ACH) for a few live events earlier this summer, including one against Imperium members Aichner and Barthel.

The series was just picked up for a second season.

WWE King of the Ring may finally elevate Baron Corbin to the main event

By virtue of winning WWE’s 2019 King of the Ring tournament, Baron Corbin may soon be destined for greatness at the main event level. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that WWE’s King of the Ring crown has largely failed to create new stars over the past decade and a half or so. Wade […]

Big Fatal 5-Way Match Set for WWE Raw, Seth Rollins to Defend Universal Title on ‘Season Premiere’

WWE has announced a big Fatal 5-Way match for this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, in order to determine who will be challenging Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship next week on the Sept. 30 edition of the show.

Participating in the match will be U.S. Champion AJ Styles, Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura, one half of the Raw Tag Team Champions Robert Roode, the high-flying sensation Ricochet, and the legendary Rey Mysterio.

WWE is referring to the Sept. 30 edition of Raw as the “season premiere” to coincide with the Fall television schedule. What’s interesting about them spending time promoting another world title match is that Rollins is already slated to face The Fiend at Hell in a Cell for the Universal Championship.

That match takes place just 6 days before the pay-per-view, and 4 days before the Smackdown debut on FOX, where Brock Lesnar will be challenging Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship.
