JBL Poker Tournament Announced For 12/5 WWE Raw

JBL's no stranger to card games

WWE announced during Friday's SmackDown broadcast that JBL will be hosting a "high stakes" poker tournament on this coming Monday's episode of Raw.

The tournament will come after a show-long series of skits took place on the November 14 episode of Raw, in which JBL and Baron Corbin were soundly beaten in poker by Akira Tozawa.

JBL returned to WWE television a couple months ago, as the manager of Corbin.

Also announced for this Monday's Raw is a Tag Team title match, in which unified champions The Usos will defend against Matt Riddle and Elias. Riddle and Elias are coming off of a victory over Alpha Academy on the November 21 episode of Raw.

Whoever wins Monday's Tag Team title bout will defend the titles on the December 11 SmackDown broadcast against Drew McIntyre and Sheamus.

The current card for WWE Raw, taking place at Capital One Arena in Washington, DC, includes the following:

* Unified WWE Tag Team: The Usos (c) vs. Matt Riddle and Elias

* JBL hosts a "high stakes" poker tournament
