    Tonight's WWE RAW takes place from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN as the road to WWE No Mercy continues.

    Tonight's show will see Alexa Bliss get her rematch from RAW Women's Champion Sasha Banks but no other matches have been confirmed. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is not scheduled for tonight's show but No Mercy opponent Braun Strowman will be there.

    WWE is focusing on the following points for tonight's show:

    * Banks faces Bliss in anticipated return bout

    * Can John Cena and Roman Reigns coexist on the same brand?

    * Enzo Amore joins the Cruiserweights

    * Is Braun Strowman our next Universal Champion?

    * Rollins & Ambrose hold their own as Raw Tag Team Champions

    Told you Sasha would lose, WWE just don't trust her to have a long run with the title, if the plan all along was Nia v Alexa just have Alexa retain at Summerslam

    "After much consideration, I will be stepping back my weekly role as Smackdown Announcer to dedicate more continuous time on the work I have done since 2010 with at risk kids and communities. My new schedule will allow me to continue to be a part of the WWE family and also continue my work that I feel is the most important thing in my life. I will continue my 20+ year relationship with WWE and will appear on such marquee shows as Tribute to the Troops, WrestleMania, amongst others.

    "With the help of Beyond Sport, I founded Beyond Rugby Bermuda in 2010--which has been recognized as one of the world's best charities for work with at risk, gang focused, youth intervention. Beyond Rugby Bermuda won the 2014 NACRA Fair Play Award out of 7,000 programs and 17 countries for its work with at risk kids. I was named as a Beyond Sport Global Ambassador--an organization backed by all major sports leagues in the U.S.

    "I'm proud to say that in addition to being Smackdown's longest reigning WWE Champion, I inspired WWE's Tribute to the Troops over 10 years ago. WWE has been my partner in all my philanthropic works and this new deal with WWE ensures that will continue. WWE has made my dreams come true and helped me become a global name. And now, WWE is helping me use that name to make a difference."
