A promotional graphic for WWE Raw.

Welcome to our WWE Raw preview. Every tag team worth its salt will be in action on WWE Raw as they seek a place in the Six-Pack Ladder match for the WWE Unified Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania.

Becky Lynch will also continue her strategy of fighting every woman on the Raw roster.

WWE Raw takes place in Raleigh, NC, and airs live at 7CT/8ET on the USA Network. Get the full lowdown in our WWE Raw preview.

Full WWE Raw Match Card:

  • WrestleMania WWE Tag Team Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: The Miz & R-Truth vs. “Indus Sher” Sanga & Veer

  • WrestleMania WWE Tag Team Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: The Creed Brothers vs. “DIY” Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano  

Lynch Hopes To Be Still Standing For WrestleMania

Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley have taken very different approaches to preparing for their WrestleMania match. Lynch has been running into challenges from Liv Morgan and Nia Jax to prove she’s still at the level to challenge for Raw’s top women’s title.

Ripley has been running her fingers through Dominik Mysterio’s mullet. She’s been the WWE Women’s World Champion for 352 days, and she has nothing to prove.

Lynch will take on her next challenge on WWE Raw this week when she faces Jax in a Last Woman Standing match. This was set after Lynch and Morgan buried the hatchet following their impressive match on last week’s show. This sickening display of sportsmanship was too much for Jax to handle. So, she promptly put Lynch through the merchandise table.

On that note, check out WWE because there are probably some shirts covered in Lynch’s blood, sweat, and tears at a discount rate.

WrestleMania WWE Tag Team Championship Ladder Match Qualifying Matches 

Six teams will compete across three matches for a place in the WrestleMania Six-Pack WWE Tag Team Championship ladder match.

Indus Sher will almost certainly lose their match to R-Truth and The Miz largely because R-Truth has been embroiled in a storyline with the WWE Tag Team Champions The Judgement Day all year, whereas Indus Sher hasn’t had a match on Raw since November.

However, R-Truth has some diary management issues, so he might not even show up.

The other two qualifying matches are a tad more challenging to predict. The New Day should beat the Otis and Akira Tozawa from Alpha Academy.

But after the crippling loss for Alpha Academy’s Chad Gable on last week’s Raw, it wouldn’t be too shocking if he decides to take Tozawa’s place. It would make sense for Gable to use his new catchphrase – ‘To me … It just means more’ to cast Tozawa aside. If he does, the odds are on Gable and his “Number 1 Guy,” Otis, winning this one.

Finally, The Creed Brothers vs. DIY could go either way. The Creed Brothers would be a great addition to the ladder match, and a win here would give the young team their first WrestleMania moment. But DIY would also be a good fit for the match. DIY is involved in the R-Truth and Judgement Day feud, so perhaps Judgement Day will look to cost them this match.

Anything Else?

Last Woman Standing and three epic tag team matches, how dare you expect more? You’ll get it, though. 

Andrade might continue his business negotiations with The Judgement Day. Drew McIntyre will continue to tell Seth Rollins how disappointed he is in him.  

Cody Rhodes gave us an intensity that’s felt missing recently during his interview with Michael Cole last week. Hopefully, there will be more of this. 

Also, could you take a look at the crowd at the PNC Arena because WWE Raw is set for a sellout? This will be the 9th consecutive sellout of the WWE Raw TV show.
