On this week’s episode of WWE Raw after the WWE FastLane 2021 PPV, there are no scheduled segments but Rhea Ripley is set to debut in what should be an exciting, explosive road to WrestleMania 37. She is being advertised as the Nightmare as she seeks redemption from last year’s WrestleMania 36 loss to Charlotte Flair in what was a historic, unprecedented NXT Women’s Championship match. on the ‘grandest stage of them all.’
These predictions were written before the WWE FastLane 2021 PPV and made a deliberate presumption that all the champions will have retained their championships by the end of the night. The four official WWE Raw matches at FastLane were: Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus in a No Holds Barred Match, Alexa Bliss vs. Randy Orton in an Inter-Gender Match, Shane McMahon vs. Braun Strowman, and Riddle (c) vs. Mustafa Ali for the United States Championship.
Our Kevin Parvizi provided full match card predictions for WWE FastLane 2021, the first ever WWE PPV event on Peacock. In turn, Daily DDT will be with you for FastLane this Sunday with live results, highlights, and ratings on what will be the very final stop before WrestleMania 37. With that being addressed, it’s now time to preview and predict the matches and segments that will occur on this week’s episode of WWE Raw.
WWE Raw is scheduled to take place on March 22, 2021, at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT live on the USA Network. Here are some predictions for this week’s show.
5.) AJ Styles (w/Omos) vs. Kofi Kingston or Xavier Woods [Grudge Match]
On last week’s WWE Raw, The New Day dethroned Hurt Business to become the new Raw Tag Team Champions. However, they were not able to celebrate for too long because they were immediately yet randomly scheduled to defend their newly won championships against AJ Styles and Omos at WrestleMania 37. To build up that match, Omos will be saved for his big debut at WrestleMania while Styles defeats Kingston and Woods on the next two weeks of WWE Raw.
Prediction: AJ Styles
