Live on Raw tonight at the FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee, Alexa Bliss vies for the title she lost at SummerSlam when she battles Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Championship. Beyond that match, PWInsider.com has confirmed the following for tonight’s show.
– John Cena vs. Samoa Joe in their first-ever singles match on WWE television.
Before either were stars, the two faced off a few times in 2000 for Ultimate Pro Wrestling, a California-based independent pro wrestling company that operated from 1999 to 2007. They wrestled for the first time inside a WWE ring last Friday in Carbondale, Illinois, with Cena winning.
Here is footage of the match in its entirety.
Cena also beat Joe on Saturday in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
