Two Matches Announced, Plus Cruiserweights Debut Tonight On Raw

In case you wanted some reasons to watch the final Raw before next week’s Clash of Champions PPV (why yes, we did just have a PPV two weeks ago. This one’s Raw-exclusive, though. Just go with it), WWE has officially announced some of what you’ll get to see on tonight’s program.

First up, after both of them had a hand in costing Roman Reigns a shot at the WWE Universal Championship, Seth Rollins and United States Champion Rusev will face off against each other in a match that will probably end when Roman Reigns runs in and Spears Rusev. But it’ll hopefully be a good match up to that point!

Also, in what should be no shock to anyone by this point, Sheamus will face Cesaro in the sixth match of their Best of Seven series. Is it just a coincidence that this sets up perfectly for a seventh match at Clash of Champions? Probably not!

Oh, and the Cruiserweights are here, as newly crowned WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJ Perkins will make his Raw debut, as well as six other confirmed names from the Cruiserweight Classic: Noam Dar, Gran Metalik, Rich Swann, Lince Dorado, Cedric Alexander, and THE Brian Kendrick! Yes, WWE has messed this division up in the past, but could it hurt to give them one more chance?

Plus, how will Raw recover from the loss of Jack Swagger? Yes, that was sarcasm. Raw airs tonight, live on the USA Network at 8 pm EDT!
