TRISH STRATUS TO WRESTLE ON RAW TONIGHT
This afternoon WWE confirmed that fans will be getting WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus teaming up with Natalya to face Charlotte Flair and RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
This is a SummerSlam preview of sorts, as Trish Stratus is set to face Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch is going to put her RAW Women’s Championship on the line against Natalya.
This is Trish’s first match since the night after WWE Evolution, where she was victorious in an eight-woman tag team match.
Another WWE Hall of Famer in the form of Shawn Michaels will also be on RAW as a part of Miz TV.
MATCH STIPULATION ADDED TO LYNCH VS NATALYA
WWE has officially made Becky Lynch and Natalya’s Raw Women’s Championship match at SummerSlam a submission match.
This came about because of a Natalya backstage interview on last week’s Raw where she teased challenging Lynch to a submission match at SummerSlam, but Natalya said she wasn’t going to issue the challenge because she doesn’t think Lynch has the guts to accept it. They also exchanged submissions across last weeks show.
The stipulation was announced via the Toronto Sun.
GOLDBERG TO APPEAR ON RAW?
We could be getting a rather unlikely match announced tonight with another WWE Hall of Famer getting in on the action.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has said that the originally announced Miz vs Dolph Ziggler match is just a red herring as Ziggler vs. WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg is the plan for next Sunday’s pay-per-view.
He also says that WWE has been trying to keep this a secret and it would likely be announced. on tonight’s go-home edition of RAW.
