WWE Raw notes: Edge issues WrestleMania challenge, Balor vs. Priest on 2/28, Owens/Rollins

Edge looking for his WrestleMania opponent, Rollins and Owens earn Raw Tag Title match, Tommaso Ciampa in action, U.S. Title match on 2/28

WWE Hall of Famer Edge made his return to Monday Night Raw and made it clear that he is looking for his WrestleMania opponent. He used the words ‘phenomenal’ and ‘undeniable’ during his promo segment. Edge also gave a shout to D-Von Dudley, who underwent back surgery last week.

Scheduled for the February 28th Raw is a U.S. Title match that will see Damian Priest put the title on the line against Finn Balor. Earlier in the night, Balor teamed up with NXT 2.0’s Tommaso Ciampa and they scored a win over Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler. On the 2/22 NXT 2.0, Ciampa and Ziggler are going one-on-one to determine the next challenger to Bron Breakker’s NXT Championship.

In the main event, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens took on RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle). The stipulation was that if Owens and Rollins won, they would be added to the RK-Bro versus Chad Gable and Otis Raw Tag Title match on March 7th. Rollins and Owens were able to get the win.

While speaking about NXT 2.0 on tonight’s Raw broadcast, Jimmy Smith referred to Gunther as ‘WALTER’. He was quickly corrected by Corey Graves.

Dana Brooke won the 24/7 Title back from Reggie. Reggie told Dana that he would lay down for her so she could get the title back. Reggie kicked out twice and on the third attempt, Dana kissed him to keep him down for the three count.

As of this writing, John Pollock and Wai Ting are live with a recording of Rewind-A-Raw.
