It was a big night for champions on WWE Raw this Monday, with all three members of The Shield involved in some kind of title match. The list of people gunning for Roman Reigns’ Intercontinental Championship is only growing, tensions between Kurt Angle and his “son” Jason Jordan escalated, and The Bar put the Raw Tag Team Championships on the line against Rollins and Ambrose in a main event that had to be restarted!

We have Smackdown tonight at 8PM EST featuring United States Champion Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode, and Smackdown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Tamina Snuka. We’ll also get more from Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens and their battle against authority, The New Day in action against The Rusev Day, and more than likely another show of strength by Ruby Riott and her Riott Squad.
