Eventually, the company has time to build more hype for the pay-per-view and it is sure that a rematch between Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan for the Raw women’s championship will take place on the PPV.

With Roman Reigns set to appear on next week’s Friday Night SmackDown, and Brock Lesnar also expected to appear on the blue brand; it is likely that the two Goliaths will cross path and maybe then the ticket will sell itself.

The WWE will try to add more and more star-power to the PPV because it is reported that the idea for this new PPV comes from WWE Vice President, Nick Khan, who wants to make it an annual ritual.
