#1 WWE Champion Bobby Lashley vs Drew McIntyre – Singles match (potential main event on RAW)

Ahead of their bout at WrestleMania Backlash, the WWE Champion will face Drew McIntyre on RAW. Although the PPV match would also involve Braun Strowman, McIntyre and Lashley would definitely hog the spotlight owing to their match at WrestleMania 37.

Fans are expecting multiple interruptions in the probable main event match. The likely interruptions will be from MVP, Strowman, and probably a returning John Cena.

#2 AJ Styles and Omos with Jaxon Ryker and Elias vs The New Day and RK-Bro

Another all-star event from the upcoming night would be a whopping 8-man tag team match. With the help of Ryker and Elias, the Tag Team Champions Omos and AJ Styles will face off against their rivals The New Day and the newly formed Tag Team of Randy Orton and Riddle.

The match will seemingly solidify Orton’s new stance as a babyface or a tweener and his solid teamwork with Riddle. The New Day will look to avenge their humiliating decimation from last week, when Omos single-handedly eviscrated them.

Elias and Ryker would look forward to the same as they lost to the team of RK-Bro last week. Dubbed as “RK-Bro Day,” this Tag Team match will surely turn heads.

#3 Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler (with Reginald), and Charlotte Flair vs Dana Brooke, Mandy Rose, and Asuka

Another tag team match from the night features the Women’s Tag Team champions and RAW Women’s title challengers. Nia and Shayna would look to settle their score with Mandy and Dana.

The latter had been pestering the Tag team champions for a long time.

Asuka and Charlotte would both face WWE RAW Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania Backlash next Sunday. Hence, this match can be seen as a warm-up to that bout.

Rhea Ripley will probably appear during the match and could be on commentary as well.

Another interesting appearance could be from the suspiciously elusive Alexa Bliss.

Bliss has been warning the Women’s locker room of Lily. And what better way to make a statement than this star-studded match? Let us know your predictions in the comments below.
