WWE Raw To See First Time Ever Singles Match

WWE Raw Stage

Monday Night Raw will see two stars face off in the ring for the first time ever in a singles match, and it could be a heated affair given the pair’s past.

The Road To WrestleMania is paved with obstacles and six men will have the biggest obstacle of them all when they enter the Elimination Chamber in February with the WWE Championship on the line. Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Riddle, Austin Theory, AJ Styles, and WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will enter the demonic structure in Saudi Arabia with a place in a WrestleMania main event potentially on the horizon.

WWE.com has confirmed that two of these men will clash on Raw on Monday night in what is a first time ever match-up. Seth ‘Freakin’ Rollins will face former Raw Tag Team Champion Riddle in singles action – with both men having a chequered past with each other.

Riddle’s wife previously made controversial comments about Rollins’ now-wife Becky Lynch. Addressing the controversy with TalkSport, Riddle previously said of his relationship with Rollins:

“I’ll be honest, I’ve met Seth multiple times and he’s met me and I don’t think we’ll ever be best friends [laughs]. I don’t think we like one another, we’re just two different people. [Although] we both love wrestling.”

“I know my significant other said something about Becky that they didn’t like and I also did not like or agree with. Seth didn’t like me after that and I don’t think Becky liked me or my wife either, which is understandable. It is what it is.”

“After Survivor Series, because he was there I got to talk to him and I said ‘Hey’ and a camera came up to us to film it and I said ‘No, don’t come over here, don’t film this. It’s between me and him. We talked.”

“I told him – and this is exactly what I said – I said ‘Hey man, what was said, I don’t agree with it. I thought it was bullcrap. It’s not cool. I just want you to know I apologise, I apologise on her behalf as well. On top of that I think you’re a great performer and if you would ever have it in your heart to work with me, I would love that.”

A Quiz Bowl has been advertised for Raw as well with RK-Bro continuing their quest to regain the Raw Tag Team Championship as they do mental battle with Alpha Academy.
