This joins the previously announced Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe Intercontinental Title match and an appearance by Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. Enzo Amore vs. Cedric Alexander for the Cruiserweight Title is also advertised, but its status is unknown due to Enzo being hospitalized earlier on Monday for an illness.
Wrestleview.com will begin live coverage of RAW tonight at 8:00 PM ET.
Update on the status of Paige
WWE star Paige is currently in Miami for tonight’s episode of RAW, but is said to have not medically cleared to compete according to multiple wrestling media reports.
Paige suffered an injury, reportedly a stinger, during a live event match last week in Uniondale during a 6-Woman Tag involving Absolution against Sasha Banks, Bayley and Mickie James where the match was stopped due to her injury.
Paige was not hospitalized that night from the injury, but was pulled by WWE for the remainder of the live event tour as a precautionary measure.
