Everything Announced For Tonight's WWE Raw Card (13 Sep)

Orton vs. Lashley, Flair vs. Baszler, a US Title open challenge, and more.


Tonight's episode of WWE Raw goes down in Boston, Massachusetts, and the promotion has made the uncharacteristic step of announcing five matches in advance. Rejoice!

"Card subject to change" always applies to WWE, of course, and Vince McMahon has already made one big switch for tonight's show. Where Bobby Lashley and MVP were originally booked to challenge for the Raw Tag Team Titles, this has now been changed to Lashley defending his WWE Championship against Randy Orton (seemingly as a response to AEW Dynamite's success last week).

Damian Priest will also defend his United States Title against an unnamed opponent in an open challenge. On top of this, the women's division will be represented in the form of two singles matches, as Rhea Ripley faces Natalya and Charlotte Flair meets Shayna Baszler.


Finally, a 10-man tag will throw The New Day and AJ Styles and Omos onto opposite sides.

Here's the card at a glance:-
