It was recently announced by The WWE that this coming Monday night’s episode of RAW will feature a huge 8-Man Main Event Matchup between The RAW Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Murphy & AOP (Akam & Rezar) vs. Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe & The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar).

Rollins, Murphy & AOP To Battle KO, Samoa Joe & The Viking Raiders on RAW
An epic Eight-Man Tag Team Match will pit RAW Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Murphy with AOP against Kevin Owens, Samoa Joe & The Viking Raiders. The match was first reported by Sports Illustrated in an interview with Seth Rollins, as The Monday Night Messiah continues to pull the strings of The RAW locker room.
Last week on RAW, Murphy & AOP took out KO & The Viking Raiders in a gruelling Six-Man Tag bout, thanks to a little help from Rollins. Despite his squad coming up short, KO received a standing ovation from The WWE Universe after eliminating Murphy & Akam and eventually being pinned by Rezar.
Tensions between the opposing groups carried over into last week’s main event – a Triple Threat war with major implications for Rollins. A Rollins victory against Bobby Lashley & Ricochet would have given him exactly what he has been thirsting for – a chance to challenge WWE Champion Brock Lesnar at WWE Super ShowDown.
Unsurprisingly, AOP & Murphy got involved in the match, but Owens & Erik evened the odds, and Ricochet scored a win to earn a chance at The Beast.
With The WWE Universe behind them, can Owens & Co. draw from that potent backing and parlay it into a win? Or, will the self-proclaimed Monday Night Messiah lead his squad to victory? Find out at 8/7 C on USA Network!
As first announced by @SInow, @WWERollins, @WWE_Murphy & #AOP are set to battle @FightOwensFight, @SamoaJoe & The #VikingRaiders THIS MONDAY on #Raw!https://t.co/B1O1E6yJkV
