Pardon the subjective opening, but WWE Raw has been a tremendously fun pro-wrestling show lately, and this looks set to continue with the announcement that Rey Mysterio and Andrade will contest the United States Championship in a Ladder Match next week.
This was confirmed during last night's episode of Raw, with both parties cutting promos on each other following the announcement. Given the quality of their bouts so far, one can only assume the Ladder Match will be nuts, particularly with Mysterio claiming he is willing to "sacrifice years off [his] life" to win.
A mixed tag pitting Liv Morgan and Rusev against Bobby Lashley and Lana is also set for next week. This one came about when Morgan made her presence felt in Lashley and Rusev's singles match, which Bobby won via pinfall.
Oh yeah, Brock Lesnar's going to be there as well. This is shaping up to be an eventful Royal Rumble go-home show.
Last night's other major development saw Buddy Murphy join Seth Rollins' growing faction with AOP, as he aided 'The Monday Night Messiah' and his burly pals to victory in their Fist Fight with Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe, and Big Show.
WhatCulture's big bad wrestling news baron. A fan since 1992, still geeking out for everything from WeeLC to mid '80s Jim Crockett Promotions. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
