WWE Announces Braun Strowman vs. Kalisto in a Dumpster Match on Raw

It was announced on Saturday afternoon that Braun Strowman will face Kalisto in a Dumpster Match on this Monday’s Raw.

The reason for the match is because last week on Raw, during one of his backstage assaults, Strowman dumped the smaller Kalisto into a dumpster. That led to Kalisto issuing this challenge to Strowman on Raw, which led to Raw GM Kurt Angle replying to it in a tweet of his own.

As you might expect, a lot of people have commented on Twitter about how it’s going to be a painful night for Kalisto. Big E, who is now a part of Smackdown, also chimed in with some humorous responses including this one:

TJR Thoughts: It’s a different kind of match because they don’t go with the Dumpster Match too often, but this is likely going to end up bad for Kalisto. When he was on Smackdown he was there to get beat up by Baron Corbin a lot. Now he’s on Raw and he’s going to get beat up by Strowman.

On the positive side, at least WWE is advertising something for the show because they often have weeks where they don’t announce anything, which is frustrating for the viewers at home.

Anyway, this should be an easy win for Strowman designed to make him look strong heading into next Sunday’s Payback PPV where he’ll have a match against Roman Reigns.

In case you didn’t see Raw’s dumpster moment, here ya go.
