Two Title Matches Announced For Monday Night RAW

US title match announcement for Monday Night Raw

WWE have announced that both the United States and RAW Tag Team Titles will be defended on next week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

The matches will see Matt Riddle defend his United States title against Mustafa Ali and Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander defend against Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston.

Mustafa Ali who recently defeated Matt Riddle on an episode of RAW in a non-title match, is yet to lift any silverware during his time in WWE. Following that victory over Riddle, Ali took to Twitter to vent his frustration over not immediately being named number one contender, and it appears that his lobbying has paid dividends.

Meanwhile as part of The Hurt Business, Shelton Benjamin and Cedric Alexander find themselves sitting atop the red brand with the most dominant faction in WWE. Benjamin and Alexander defeated The New Day for the tag team titles back at WWE TLC back in December.

Meanwhile, The New Day along with SmackDown’s Big E are one of the most decorated tag teams in WWE history. At one stage being recognised as the longest raining tag team champions in WWE history and have held variations of the titles on ten occasions.
