“Stone Cold” Steve Austin to moderate Universal Championship contract signing between Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman

One week after the Universal Title contract signing between Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Braun Strowman for WWE Clash of Champions ended in chaos thanks to The O.C., WWE Hall of Famer “Stone Cold” Steve Austin returns to his old stomping grounds, Madison Square Garden, to preside over this anticipated contract signing … and raise some hell if he needs to.

After United States Champion AJ Styles, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson spoiled Rollins and Strowman’s contract signing, Austin took to Twitter, announcing that he would be making sure the contract signing goes down like it’s supposed to next week, and that’s the bottom line.

Remembering that Rollins received Austin’s seal of approval on Raw last month, Strowman seems wary of the WWE Hall of Famer’s return, stating plainly that if Austin steps out of line with The Monster Among Men, he’ll get those hands. However, just about anyone who has crossed The Texas Rattlesnake over the past 20-plus years has gotten a Stunner for their trouble, no matter their size.

The battle of WWE’s Four Horsewomen

After SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley helped Sasha Banks obliterate Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in separate attacks on Raw and SmackDown LIVE this past week, The Man and The Queen will form an unexpected alliance against the brutal best friends in an anticipated tag team match involving all of WWE’s Four Horsewomen.

With Lynch poised to defend her title against The Boss and Flair challenging Bayley for her championship next Sunday at WWE Clash of Champions, who will gain key momentum?

Rey Mysterio returns to action against Gran Metalik

Three weeks after his son Dominick pulled him from the brink of retirement, Rey Mysterio will compete on Monday Night Raw, taking on fellow luchador Gran Metalik of Lucha House Party in one-on-one combat.

With Dominick no doubt watching closely, how will The Ultimate Underdog fare against the high-flying Metalik as the masked warriors square off in legendary Madison Square Garden?
