WWE announced a pair of upcoming title matches this week for both the July 12 and July 19 editions of Monday Night Raw. For the July 12 show, United States Champion Sheamus will defend his title against Humberto Carrillo. This will be Sheamus’ first match since May 31 and his first title defense since winning the title at WrestleMania 37 in April. Carrillo has defeated Sheamus in a non-title match.
The second match will take place on July 19, which will be the first Monday Night Raw to have a full capacity audience in over sixteen months. During the show, the Viking Raiders will challenge AJ Styles and Omos for the Raw Tag Team Titles. The Raiders earned their shot by winning a tag team battle royal during the June 7 edition of Monday Night Raw. This will be the teams’ first match against each other.
These are some big matches. Check out how we got here:
