Matt Hardy to battle Randy Orton in No Holds Barred Match

This past Monday on Raw, Randy Orton subjected Matt Hardy to the same brutal Con-Chair-To that sent Edge out of Raw on a stretcher. Now, Hardy is coming for payback.

In the wake of Orton’s heinous attack, the former Raw Tag Team Champion is now slated to battle The Apex Predator in a No Holds Barred Match, placing Orton directly on a collision course with his most recent victim — to say nothing of a Superstar who refuses to take the abuse lying down. After all, Hardy is as much a trailblazer as Edge, and his history is almost completely entwined with that of The Rated-R Superstar. Then again, Randy Orton seems to take a particular delight in destroying legends these days. He’ll be more than happy to do it again.

Seth Rollins to hold “sermon” on Monday Night Raw

Come one, come all: The Monday Night Messiah is holding his first sermon.

Hot off the heels of a decisive (if slightly underhanded) Eight-Man Tag Team victory, Seth Rollins will host a “sermon” this Monday on Raw. What, exactly, The Monday Night Messiah will preach to the masses is anybody’s guess, and Rollins is keeping his cards close to the vest on this one. Nevertheless, this Monday, he intends to lay out the path to salvation before us. Who will walk it?

What lies ahead for Becky Lynch in the wake of Shayna Baszler’s attack?

There are statements, and then there are statements. Two-time NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler literally taking a bite out of Becky Lynch during a shocking Raw attack is the latter. But what lies around the corner for The Queen of Spades and The Man?

That’s the question, isn’t it? Lynch seemed to be back to her usual fiery self shortly thereafter, driving her own ambulance to and from the hospital and showing up at the WrestleMania 37 press conference looking not too worse for wear. Her fighting spirit stayed strong, as well, as the Raw Women’s Champion emphatically informed her attacker, “You’d better find me before I find you.” A warning, or a challenge? Either way, someone is the target, and this grisly game between two of the best is just getting started.
