Seth Rollins and Erick Rowan set to battle in Falls Count Anywhere Match
With a Universal Championship Falls Count Anywhere Match against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at WWE Crown Jewel looming in the distance, Seth Rollins will get to try his hand at the ruthless stipulation opposite one of Raw’s newest monsters.
As revealed on FS1’s WWE Backstage show, the Universal Champion will go one-on-one with Raw draftee Erick Rowan in a Falls Count Anywhere Match this Monday, potentially giving The Beastslayer a chance to work out the kinks as he barrels toward his horrifying foe at WWE Crown Jewel.
The match also carries a certain kind of poetic significance. In what feels like another lifetime, Rowan was a disciple of Wyatt’s. And although the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion has since broken away from any and all subjugation to become his own kind of nightmare, Rollins might gain the mental edge that he sorely needs if he can defeat Rowan prior to squaring off against the Superstar who has pushed him to the brink of his sanity. Tune in to Raw this Monday, live at 8/7 C on USA Network, to see who prevails.
Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair to appear days before WWE Crown Jewel
If tensions weren’t already at a boiling point between Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and their respective teams heading into their massive 5-on-5 Tag Team showdown at WWE Crown Jewel, they certainly are now.
A war of words between the two WWE Hall of Famers and team representatives devolved into fisticuffs Friday on SmackDown, setting up a Six-Man Tag Team Match won by Team Hogan competitors Roman Reigns, Ali & Shorty G.
With only three days before the score is settled at Crown Jewel, what’s in store when both The Hulkster and The Nature Boy are on hand for Raw on USA Network at 8/7 C?
