Cody Rhodes and Jey Uso will retain the titles on WWE Raw

2 of 3

Gunther (c) vs. Bronson Reed [InterContinental Championship]

Gunther will defeat Bronson Reed to retain the Intercontinental Title. Although this is a special episode of Raw, there is no way Gunther’s historic reign is ending on a non-PLE event. Also, if someone is going to dethrone the heel Gunther, it would be a babyface the fans can get behind rather than a monster heel like Bronson Reed. This match will be a hoss fight, but the true top candidates on Raw to dethrone Gunther are: (1) Sami Zayn, (2) Main Event Jey Uso, and (3) Chad Gable. I should be Zayn since he is no longer pursuing the tag titles without Kevin Owens on Raw.

Prediction: Gunther

Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Shayna Baszler [Non-Title Match]

Rhea Ripley will defeat Shayna Baszler in this non-title match, if there is actually a conclusive finish, because champions, especially world champions, should not lose singles matches on live television. However, this idea of a conclusive finish is unlikely because it seems that WWE is building up to Fatal Four Way Match for that world title amongst Rhea Ripley (c), Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, and Raquel Rodriguez. They have been brawling like crazy, and it is very likely that Jax interrupts this match with Rodriguez making the save to set up this fatal four way title match.

Prediction: Rhea Ripley -or- No Contest
