WWE has confirmed that the opening match of tonight’s episode of Raw will feature WWE Raw Tag Team Champions Alpha Academy vs. Randy Orton and Riddle vs. Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins with the titles on the line.

Pwinsider.com reports WWE NXT Champion Bron Breaker and Tommaso Ciampa are both backstage at the show. Although not confirmed, it’s likely Breakker and Ciampa will appear on the show to promote their triple threat match with Dolph Ziggler in the main event of Tuesday’s episode of NXT 2.0.

This will be Breakker’s Raw debut should he appear. Ciampa has been featured on Raw over the last few weeks. Just last Monday night, Ciampa made his entrance with new theme music, which is another indication that WWE considers him part of the main roster.
