Andrade to defend U.S. Title against Rey Mysterio in a Ladder Match
WWE said:
Are Rey Mysterio and United States Champion Andrade destined to do this forever? If last week was any indication, they might be. If next week is any indication, they might be ready to skip straight to the part where one of them has nothing left.

Following Andrade’s highly personal theft of Mysterio’s mask last week, it has been determined that the two will battle for Andrade’s United States Championship in a Ladder Match — a rarity for Monday Night Raw, a treat for the WWE Universe and a decisive opportunity for each Latino icon to show that they shine brightest. With pride and the title on the line, look for no stone to go unturned, no stop to go un-pulled, and no question left as to who the true champion is.

WWE Champion Brock Lesnar returns
Brock Lesnar typically picks his Raw appearances sparingly, but with his eyes on a historic achievement in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match, the WWE Champion is seemingly ensuring that the Raw roster remembers his name.

The Beast Incarnate will appear live on Raw for the third straight week, the latest in a string of appearances since willingly taking the No. 1 entry in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. This year’s field features no shortage of heavy-hitters proclaiming themselves as the one to oust The Conqueror, a chest-beating display that has become something of a yearly tradition in the run-up to WrestleMania. Seems like the one key difference is that they’ll get the opportunity to do so to his face. We’ll see if any of them make good on it.
Rusev & Liv Morgan to battle Bobby Lashley & Lana in Mixed Tag Team Match​
Bobby Lashley defeated Rusev in their latest battle on Raw in a manner that was both demoralizing and far from decisive, as The All Mighty only earned the victory after a scuffle between Lana and Liv Morgan threw the match into chaos. Next week, then, seems to be setting up a far more definitive clash, as Lashley & Lana will team up against Rusev & Liv in a Mixed Tag Team Match that brings all corners of this tangled web together. That Lana issued the challenge was a bad sign for Lashley, who seemed aware that he had gotten lucky against Rusev and was more than ready to be rid of him. With Rusev and Liv more than willing to take another crack at their tormentors, it’s safe to say this one is going to be wild.

I'm surprised Brock will be here for this. I'm guessing there's a surprise?
Excited for Rey v Andrade ladder match. That should be good.

The ladder match will probably be fun but I hope that Andrade wins. Andrade better win, Andrade better win, Andrade better win.

McIntyre, Charlotte, Becky and Asuka build, Authors and Architect of Pain/Samoa Joe and Owens...That is 5 things so far that I am looking forward to for RAW tonight.

Please let this be the last day with the Rusev/Lana/Bobby drama. Please. Probably not. Lana and Liv will probably have a match next week.

Lesnar being there, I don't care.

it won't, I have a feeling Lana will say "she can't wrestle cause of an injury or she can't get her beautiful face hurt", But she found a replacement to take her spot. cue up I'm not like most girls... Nia Jax comes out and teams with Bobby Lashley.

Actually excited for a RAW match, feels weird
Raw has been really good for the last 6-8 weeks.Which is funny, because in contrast SD has been absolute garbage outside of the Bryan/Fiend stuff.

But, aside from the Rusev/Lana feud, which at least they are trying despite me not being a fan, they are doing a good job at building their guys up, doing character work, and having actual storylines. I think the Heyman fingerprints are finally showing all over the roster now. Look how many guys they are actually building/attempting to build concurrently.

Yeah so I've heard, I checked out last weeks show for the first time in a bit and enjoyed it. Its still early but maybe theyve finally found a new group capable of carrying the show

I'm looking forward to this Seth/Buddy alliance. Seth has been very entertaining since turning heel. Not sure why people thought he was better as a face.

Rollins' in-ring style is well-suited for a flashy babyface performance that pops the crowd. His last heel run with The Authority was a complete bore. This last face run was excruciating to watch at the end but it started off hot. I do agree with you that his heel character work currently is some of his best.

My first RAW this year. I am looking forward to Seth's Faction, Liv Morgan, The Ladder Match, and continuation of Asuka and Becky heading into Rumble. Looks like a quality show on tap. I caught the Truth segment and other clips from last week and have heard how good things have been getting. Lets see how it goes.

I completely forgot the ladder match was happening until I saw an Instagram post about it a few minutes ago. It's raised my excitement levels for Raw considerably. Rey and Andrade ALWAYS have killer matches, and now they're adding a ladder to proceedings? Goddamn.

Orton vs. McIntyre is going to be the polar opposite of Rey vs. Andrade in style, but if given time it could be right there in terms of quality.
