The road to WrestleMania continues on Monday Night Raw tonight with Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns set for their first face-to-face encounter of the program. The two were supposed to face off two weeks ago on Raw but Lesnar did not appear despite being advertised in Anaheim the night after the Elimination Chamber.
John Cena is also expected to be on Raw after his unsuccessful attempt to capture the WWE championship last night at Fastlane, leaving him with no path to WrestleMania. This is the first time in a very long time that Cena has no opponent for WrestleMania with less than a month to go to the show.
Another important part of the broadcast will be the continuation of the feud between Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. The Ultimate Deletion match was filmed last week at the Hardy compound but there has been no mention so far on when the match will air on Raw. Hardy tweeted a picture with the rest of his family writing, “With my LOYAL & TRUSTED PLATOON at my side, Bray Wyatt is DESTINED to meet The #UltimateDELETION. It is time to bring this #GreatWar to a close. #RAW”
Ronda Rousey will also be in the house in Detroit, Michigan tonight as Triple H and Stephanie McMahon look to recover from last week’s setback, where both of them ended up being laid out by Rousey and Kurt Angle.
