Tonight’s Raw is the go-home edition before WrestleMania and as noted before will feature Brock Lesnar, a Batista announcement as well a tag team title match where The Revival will take on Aleister Black and Ricochet. The plan as of now is for a different tag title match at WrestleMania, but it’s unclear who the opponents might be except that the rumor going around is that it will be a ‘new’ program.
It is also expected that WWE will clarify the women’s title match at WrestleMania by announcing it as a “Winner Take All” and to possibly announce a stipulation. As of last week, the idea was that if either Ronda Rousey or Charlotte Flair was pinned or submitted, she would lose her respective title, but if Becky Lynch was pinned, no titles would change hands. This would seem to imply that the only way one person would hold both titles is if Ronda or Charlotte pinned the other, thus simultaneously making it more likely that Becky will either get the victory or be the one to get pinned. As Rajah noted on Twitter, WWE seems to not be headed into a scenario where the titles are to be unified.
The Smackdown tag team titles are also expected to be defended at WrestleMania and as reported already, it will be a multi- team match. At this point, it appears the possible teams could include the Usos, The Bar, The New Day as well as Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev.
