WWE Chief Content Officer Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque unveiled a new World Heavyweight Championship. A champion is going to be crowned at the Night of Champions Premium Live Event in Saudi Arabia on May 27th. Seth Rollins set his sights on becoming champion but after doing so, he was confronted by his opponent at Backlash, Omos.

This Friday on SmackDown, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are scheduled to defend the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles against The Usos (Jimmy & Jey Uso). On the 4/24 Raw, Sami approached Jey ahead of their match. When Jey told Jimmy about the conversation, Jimmy was not happy as Jey began to wonder what Roman Reigns is going to do to them if they don’t win the titles. This led to Jimmy confronting Sami about his ‘mind games’.

Brock Lesnar is appearing on the May 1st Monday Night Raw. 

Prior to Raw going live on USA Network, ‘Main Event’ was filmed and NXT’s Cora Jade and Joe Gacy were in action. Jade lost to Nikki Cross and Gacy lost to Dexter Lumis. 

L.W.O. has a new theme which starts off with ‘Viva La Raza’ from the beginning of Los Guerreros’ theme. Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro lost to The Bloodline (Solo Sikoa, Jimmy & Jey Uso) after Sikoa spiked Del Toro mid-air.
