WWE RAW PREVIEW: Brock Lesnar returns, Survivor Series update, Smackdown invasion
Stephanie McMahon is backStephanie seems set to air her frustrations towards the Smackdown Commissioner ahead of this Sunday's Survivor Series that will see the two brands going to war against one another.
RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon is scheduled to appear tonight and reports suggest she will address her brother Shane's actions at WWE Crown Jewel.
Shane interfered in the World Cup Tournament Final when he replaced injured Smackdown superstar The Miz and defeated RAW's Dolph Ziggler, even though he wasn't even part of the competition, and took the trophy to the blue brand.
Brock Lesnar returnsTeam RAW will face Smackdown's Charlotte Flair, Asuka, Naomi, Carmella and Sonya Deville at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Brock Lesnar made history at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia as he became the first ever two-time Universal Champion when he defeated Braun Strowman for the vacant title.
Lesnar is scheduled to make a rare appearance on RAW that will almost definitely see him bringing his advocate Paul Heyman with him.
The UFC legend is scheduled to face WWE Champion AJ Styles at Survivor Series for the second year in a row and will probably be looking to send him a message ahead of this Sunday's megamatch.
Alexa Bliss reveals team
Alexa Bliss was named as the RAW Women's Survivor Series Team captain last week by Acting General Manager Baron Corbin but the five-time women's champion claimed she is still injured and will therefore lead the squad from ringside as a manager.
Bliss has yet to name a single member but her team is set to be revealed tonight ahead of the scheduled 5-0n-5 Elimination Match at Survivor Series.
Braun Strowman targets Baron Corbin
Corbin cost Strowman the Universal Championship in Riyadh when he knocked him out with the belt before the bell rang.
The Monster Among Men tried to get some revenge from The Lone Wolf last week but the Acting RAW GM managed to run away.
Corbin will struggle to run the show tonight and greet his boss McMahon as the ex-RAW Tag Team Champion is probably still seeking for vengeance.
Team RAW's two more members
Drew McIntyre put the entire WWE
on notice when he destroyed WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle and made him tap out to his own Ankle Lock finisher last week.
That denied Angle of the opportunity to lead the Men's RAW Survivor Series Team against Smackdown on Sunday.
McIntyre, Dolph Ziggler and Strowman are the only two named members and are expected to be joined by two more superstars.
Last year's Survivor Series interpromotional war between the two brands reached boiling point as Smackdown and RAW kept invading each other's shows.
According to Ringside News
, Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer isn't ruling out the possibility of superstars from the blue brand coming to the Sprint Center and sabotaging the event.
Both teams will be looking for some momentum ahead of the Pay-Per-View show which takes place in just a week.
