WWE heads to the Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO for tonight’s episode of RAW. Below are the focus points for the show.
“Beast in the Bank” Brock Lesnar has been circling Universal Champion Seth Rollins and WWE Champion Kofi Kingston like a shark, and per Paul Heyman, “The Purveyor of Paranoia” will finally reveal which World Champion he will cash in on this Monday night on Raw.
Might The Conqueror seek payback against Rollins, who defeated Lesnar for the Universal Title at WrestleMania? Or will he look to end Kingston’s 11-year WWE Championship journey in heartbreak and destruction, mere days before he is set to defend it against Dolph Ziggler at WWE Super ShowDown?
In the conclusion of the United States Championship Match at WWE Money in the Bank, the referee issued a three-count that awarded Rey Mysterio the star-spangled title. However, Samoa Joe’s left shoulder was clearly off the mat, resulting in no small amount of controversy.
In a self-recorded proclamation aired during Monday Night Raw, Joe said he is willing to “gift” Rey a chance to hand him back the title.
“Rey, I’m giving you the opportunity to lead by example. To be the man that I know you hope Dominick grows to be,” Joe said, once again invoking the name of Mysterio’s son. “Because if you don’t, just imagine the example that I will set for you.”
R-Truth left SmackDown LIVE with the all-new 24/7 Championship. However, given the fact that the title can change hands anytime or anywhere, it’s anyone’s guess as to who could be holding the title when Raw comes on the air at 8/7 C on USA Network.
With Superstars clamoring for the title at all hours of the day – and its holder in a near-constant state of disarray – the 24/7 Championship ushers in a calamitous new era for all brands in WWE.
After defeating Lacey Evans at WWE Money in the Bank to retain her Raw Women’s Championship, Becky Lynch bested The Lady of WWE in back-to-back tag team matches on Raw and SmackDown LIVE.
Despite these setbacks, The Sassy Southern Belle affirmed in a WWE.com interview Tuesday night that she has unfinished business with The Man and that she is “the future Raw Women’s Champion.” Will Evans earn another opportunity to battle Becky, or will another challenger emerge?
