Poker tournament announced for this Monday’s WWE Raw

It was announced during Friday’s SmackDown that WWE Hall of Famer JBL will host a “high-stakes poker tournament” on this Monday’s episode of Raw. 

The poker tournament is from a series of backstage skits involving JBL and Corbin playing poker, including an angle during the November 14 episode of Raw in which Akira Tozawa defeated JBL and Baron Corbin in a poker game. 

JBL made his return to WWE programming on the October 11 episode of Raw as a regular heel character, serving as a manager to Baron Corbin.

Monday’s show will take place live on the USA Network from the Capital One Arena in Washington DC. 

Also announced for Monday’s show is The Usos defending the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships against Matt Riddle & Elias, with the winner defending the tag titles against Drew McIntyre & Sheamus on next Friday night’s SmackDown.
