WWE RAW Preview, Match Card, Predictions, Venue and Timings: Final Raw before WrestleMania 38

published

WWE WrestleMania Raw episode on March 28, 2022, will air from PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Here’s the preview, match card, Predictions, Venue, and Timings:

Monday Night Raw this week is the WrestleMania go-home show. It will be the last build-up before The Showcase of the Immortals – WrestleMania which begins on April 2.

Match Card and Predictions

Stone Cold Steve Austin to confront Kevin Owens on the show?

Last week’s episode of RAW witnessed Kevin Owens pulling off an impressive impersonation of Austin. This week, however, fans might get to witness the Texas Rattlesnake in person. Austin might be headed for RAW this week.

He might come out to the ring to have a piece of Owens but the former Universal champion is expected to avoid physical contact. However, fans would surely love to see Austin on RAW after quite some time.

Omos to get his WrestleMania 38 opponent

Omos has been laying waste to superstars over the last few weeks. The enormous superstar defeated Apollo Crews three weeks ago on RAW. Omos defeated Commander Azeez a couple of weeks ago on the red brand. Last week, Omos annihilated Crews and Azeez in a handicap match.

After the match, the former Tag Team champion demanded tougher opposition. It is rumored that Bobby Lashley will be returning this week to accept Omos’ challenge and schedule a match at WrestleMania 38. Lashley was last seen during the Elimination Chamber PPV in the Chamber match where he got injured and couldn’t defend his WWE Championship. Brock Lesnar dominated the other participants to win the Title. This was a storyline injury though. Lashley actually suffered a shoulder injury at Royal Rumble. He was set to be out for around 4 months but he has recovered ahead of time it seems and if the match against Omos happens, he could be turning face after a long time.

Rey Mysterio versus The Miz

The Miz pulled off Rey Mysterio’s mask last week. This week, The Master of 619 will have his revenge. This is a rematch from the encounter between the two veterans at the Elimination Chamber which Rey won.

Logan Paul might be involved in a scuffle with Dominik inside the ring. The animosity between the two teams heading into ‘Mania is palpable. Let’s hope Rey and Miz produce another classic this week on RAW.

Prediction – Rey Mysterio will beat The Miz

Seth Rollins is slated to have a meeting with Vince McMahon tomorrow

Vince McMahon has been involved in a few segments with Austin Theory recently. He will be having a meeting with Seth Rollins this week. It can be expected that the Chairman of WWE will announce The Visionary’s opponent for WrestleMania. In all likelihood, fans are finally gonna be getting their wish, to see Cody Rhodes walk into a WWE ring once again.

Rollins has been seeking a WrestleMania match or segment for a long time. WWE made this into a storyline as Rollins couldn’t book his ticket to The Show of Shows. He challenged Kevin Owens and AJ Styles to matches on the last two editions of RAW respectively. The catch was that if Rollins could win against them, he would steal their spot at ‘Mania. He, however, fell short on both occasions.

Street Profits versus Alpha Academy

Street Profits, Alpha Academy, and RK-Bro are set to have a triple-threat match at ‘Mania for the RAW Tag Team Championship. Two of the three teams, Street Profits, and Alpha Academy are going to go head to head this week on RAW. Both teams would be looking to gain momentum heading into the showpiece event.

Chad Gable and Otis from the Alpha Academy are former RAW Tag Team Champions. The Street Profits have won the tag team gold on all three brands of WWE on one occasion each. This promises to be an interesting affair.

Prediction – Alpha Academy using some underhand methods to get the W

The Usos versus RK-Bro

It’s a Survivor Series kind of match-up as the SmackDown Tag Team champions – The Usos take on the RAW Tag Team champions – RK-Bro this week. Incidentally, these two teams faced each other at Survivor Series 2021 where Randy Orton and Matt Riddle won.

This match doesn’t have much consequence as far as WrestleMania is concerned as the two teams will not be taking each other on at the big event. However, this could be the best match on WrestleMania RAW.

Prediction – The Usos will beat RK-Bro

Sasha Banks, Naomi, Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley versus Queen Zelina, Carmella, Shayna Baszler and Natalya

This match might turn into a scuffle very quickly as the referee will have his/her work cut out to control the eight women. It’s important to note that WrestleMania will see the Women’s Tag Team Champions Queen Zelina and Carmella defend their Titles in a Fatal-4 way match against the teams of a) Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley, b) Naomi and Sasha Banks, c) Natalya and Shayna Baszler.

In all likelihood, the team having all the faces will triumph over the heels on RAW. It’s going to be interesting to see how Carmella reacts with Corey Graves on commentary. She has been distracted of late during her matches with Graves around and Zelina hasn’t been too pleased with it. The two had a brawl last week on SmackDown before hugging it out later in the show.

Becky Lynch will execute another assault on Bianca Belair

Becky Lynch has been ruthless over the past few weeks. She has laid out Bianca Belair and cut intense promos over the last couple of weeks. Becky alleged Bianca of fracturing her voice box in a WWE live show.

She has been at her demolishing best heading into ‘Mania and another attack might be awaiting The EST of WWE.

Edge will cut another scintillating promo

After unleashing a lethal beatdown on AJ Styles, Edge has cut some sizzling promos as a heel. He is expected to deliver another fine segment with the mic and the blue light.

AJ Styles might not be returning this week to sell Edge’s beatdown even more. He would return directly at ‘Mania. However, the other probability is that AJ Styles returns to interrupt Edge’s promo and looks to exact his revenge but the Rated-R superstar wants nothing to do with Styles and leaves the ring.

Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar to go all out in a brawl

Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will be in the same building as announced by WWE, this week on RAW. Brock has been trying to get his revenge after he endured a brutal beatdown at the Madison Square Garden live show, a few weeks ago that left him bloodied.

Reigns has managed to avoid the Beast Incarnate but this week on RAW, they are expected to go all out as security personnel will try their best to separate them but to no avail. This segment is likely to feature at the closing stage of RAW this week.

Venue and Timings
