WWE Raw is scheduled to take place on August 3, 2020, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT live on USA.

On this week’s episode of WWE Raw, there are no scheduled matches as of this writing. However, there are two advertised segments, in which WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and Asuka will both seek their retribution for what their adversaries, Randy Orton and Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, put them through on last week’s Raw.

The WWE Universe will very likely be wondering who is next for the self-declared United States Champion, MVP, or the legitimate United States Champion Apollo Crews, if he returns to the red brand in due time. The past few weeks have indicated that Mustafa Ali and Bobby Lashley have been in the mix for the next United States Championship opportunity.

In terms of the upcoming PPV, WWE SummerSlam 2020 is shaping up nicely with two scheduled title matches from the red brand thus far: (1) Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championship and (2) Street Profits (c) vs. Andrade and Angel Garza for the Raw Tag Team Championships.

With that being said, it’s now time to preview and predict the matches and segments that will occur on this week’s WWE Raw. To start things off, let’s predict who will be next in line for Shelton Benjamin’s 24/7 Championship while considering the associated implications for the future of the United States Championship.
