Apollo Crews will have a match tonight on Raw.
WWE announced that Crews, the current United States Champion, will take on MVP in a non-title match on Raw. Crews and MVP have been feuding for weeks, with the latest chapter taking place last week with MVP sending Bobby Lashley to attack Crews after his non-title win over Shelton Benjamin.
After being suckered into an ambush last week, United States Champion Apollo Crews will have an opportunity at retribution tonight when he faces MVP in a non-title match.
MVP has seen his attempts to bring the promising Superstar into his camp resisted at every pass after aggressively pursuing Crews for weeks.
Frustrated by his failure to land his target, MVP turned spiteful last week. First, he lured Crews into a trap for Shelton Benjamin to ambush him prior to their match. Then he unleashed Bobby Lashley to viciously lock Crews in the Full Nelson following his victory over Benjamin.
MVP figures to have more tricks up his sleeve for this one-on-one encounter. Will Crews overcome MVP’s veteran savvy and knock off the former United States Champion?
In addition, it was announced that The Viking Raiders will take on Andrade and Angel Garza in a tag team match.
The Street Profits and Viking Raiders have developed a competitive but friendly rivalry in recent weeks, and neither duo takes kindly to the other being disrespected. Erik & Ivar demonstrated exactly that, backing up The Street Profits when Andrade & Angel Garza ambushed them after their match last week on Raw.
Now, The Viking Raiders will look to defend their friends’ honor against Andrade & Garza tonight on Raw.
With their recent issues apparently patched up at the behest of Zelina Vega, Andrade & The Lethal Lothario may have championship gold in their sights. But any opportunity at The Street Profits’ Raw Tag Team Titles likely goes through Erik & Ivar first.
WWE also later announced that Ric Flair and Big Show will appear on Raw and Akira Tozawa will defend his WWE 24/7 Title against R-Truth.
Fightful will have live coverage of Raw, tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
