WWE is loading up the card for the December 12 episode of WWE Raw.
As confirmed during the December 5 episode of WWE Raw, Bobby Lashley will face Seth Rollins in a #1 Contender's Match for the WWE United States Championship next Monday. This bout will be the latest chapter of the rivalry between the two stars. They have been at odds for a number of weeks, dating back to October. After Brock Lesnar attacked Lashley, Rollins beat "The All Mighty" to win the WWE United States Championship on the October 10 episode of WWE Raw. Austin Theory later beat both Rollins and Lashley to win the title at WWE Survivor Series.
Lashley and Rollins brawled on Monday night, and "The All Mighty" accidentally dropped producer Pete Williams with a Spear during the chaos.
Monday's show will also feature another match with championship implications, as Bayley will face Alexa Bliss in a bout where the winner will earn a shot at the WWE Raw Women's Championship. On the December 5 episode, Bayley beat Rhea Ripley and Asuka to earn her place in the match. Meanwhile, Bliss clinched her spot in the match by defeating Nikki Cross and Becky Lynch on Monday.
Additionally, Candice LeRae will take on IYO SKY in a singles match. LeRae defeated Dakota Kai, SKY's tag team partner, on the November 28 episode of Raw. She has been feuding with Damage CTRL (Bayley, Kai & SKY) for the majority of her time on Raw following her return to WWE.
