New Matches Announced For Raw and SmackDown This Week


This week’s Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live look to be jam-packed with action on the road to the Royal Rumble.

Raw women’s champion Ronda Rousey will be teaming up with her longtime friend Natalya to battle Sasha Banks and Bayley in a tag-team bout. Banks earned an opportunity at Rousey’s title after defeating Nia Jax in a #1 contenders matchup two weeks ago. Banks and Rousey successfully teamed up this past Monday, but a post-match interview led to a tense argument.

Samoa Joe and Mustafa Ali were scheduled for a singles-bout last week, but the matchup never got underway due to Joe attacking Ali before the bell. Ali looks to get some revenge after the vicious beatdown by the Destroyer, and gain a little momentum on the go-home show before the Rumble.

Finally, a rematch between the legendary Rey Mysterio and Andrade has been scheduled for SmackDown, this time in a 2-out-of-3 falls match. Their epic clash on Tuesday’s episode certainly had fans talking, many calling it one of the best television matches in years.
