Tonight’s RAW saw Edge come to the ring to address his WrestleMania future after issuing an Open Challenge last week. AJ came out to accept the challenge. Edge says he and AJ have both waited for this match, as have the fans, but he wants the bulldog version of AJ, not the “tag team b—h” version we’ve seen over the last year or so. That led to a brawl between the two.
Edge got the upperhand on AJ and laid him out with cheap shot kick below the belt. He then snapped and brought two steel chairs in the ring, and left AJ laying with two Con-Chair-To chair shots. RAW went off the air with a dazed & heel Edge standing over AJ in the ring.
Naomi and Sasha Banks vs. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Carmella and Queen Zelina Vega is also now official for WrestleMania 38.
We noted before how Naomi announced during last week’s SmackDown that she and Banks were coming for the titles. Tonight’s RAW featured a backstage segment where Carmella and Vega accepted the challenge.
