A new WWE Universal Champion will be crowned in this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Here are all the things you need to know about WWE Raw August 29, 2016 complete with previews and live stream links.
Fatal 4-Way Match for the WWE Universal Championship
Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Big Cass will be competing in a Fatal 4-Way Match for the vacant WWE Universal Championship. All stars earned their spots in the main event of WWE Raw August 29 by winning their respective singles matches last week.
According to Cageside Seats, Rollins is currently planned to win the WWE Universal championship. But it should be noted that the WWE tends to change their plans up to the last minute. Reigns also has a big chance to win the title if the backstage heat on him is over.
Big Cass was put into the match due to Vince McMahon is high on him. However, it is too soon to give him a singles push since him and Enzo Amore has a great future as a tag team. On the other hand, Owens has a slight chance to win the Universal championship because he was scheduled to face Finn Balor at Clash Champions before his shoulder injury.
Update on Rusev’s injury
United States champion Rusev injured his ribs at SummerSlam following an attack by Roman Reigns before their match. He lost to Big Cass the next via count out as his rib injury were too much to handle. What will he do this week?
One possible thing Rusev can do is retaliate against Reigns during the Fatal 4-Way Match. He can continue their story by costing The Guy the Universal title. It will take off Reigns in the universal championship picture while also resuming their feud.
Bayley is finally on the main roster and she will fill-in for Sasha Banks, who is currently recovering from a back injury. She defeated Dana Brooke in last week’s Raw and it will likely lead to a WWE Women’s Title match against Charlotte at Clash of Champions.
What will Dr. Karl Anderson and Dr. Luke Gallows do next?
After failing to win the WWE Tag Team titles at SummerSlam, Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows got their mojo back by attacking the retiring Dudley Boyz. Anderson and Gallows were an unstoppable tag team in Japan and the WWE should book them like that.
They have been portrayed badly in their first year in the WWE but they possess so much potential. Anderson and Gallows could continue their attack on The New Day until they earn another shot at the tag team titles.
