Monday Night Raw is eminating LIVE from the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA! And now Wrestlemania 32 is less than three weeks away.
Shane McMahon, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker are also scheduled to appear on the show this week, but the show is bring promoted around the champion, HHH.
The aftermath of Roadblock 2016 will be felt on Raw. The top story is that Triple H defeated Dean Ambrose at the show to retain the WWE World Heavyweigh Title.
HHH looked great in the ring and was able to keep up with Amborse in a nearly 25 minute main event match. Now Hunter’s focus goes back to Roman Reigns. The Big Dog has been off of WWE TV since HHH laid him out on the February 22, 2016 Raw. It doesn’t look like Roman is booked for the show, but HHH will address him in a promo, likely to start the show.
This is WWE.com on HHH: Triple H escaped with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but as he walks into Pittsburgh with the ultimate prize, what message will he have for his WrestleMania opponent Roman Reigns? And how will Dean Ambrose respond to coming up short at WWE Roadblock?
Dean Ambrose will also be on the show, not only to address his match with Hunter, but also looking forward to his match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. The X Factor is the Wyatt Family, who appear to still be involved in this storyline as well.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley will make an appearance on Raw tomorrow night. Foley is set to appear as part of an angle related to WrestleMania 32, where he will also make another appearance. Foley made the podcast rounds last week to promote his charity Wrestlemania contest, and will shift into promotion what could be a big role at Wrestlemania 32.
In a huge WWE Tag Team Titles match, the New Day will take on Rusev and Alberto Del Rio of the League of Nations. The champs defeated Sheamus and Wade Barrett of the LoN at Roadblock 2016 and will take on the other half of hte faction on Raw. While it was originally rumored as a Wrestlemania 32 match, if the New Day gets past Rusev and ADR on Raw, perhaps they will be in a different match at Wrestlemania. Is a possible six man tag team match against the Rock and the Usos in the offing?
Sami Zayn had an interesting match against Stardust at Roadblock 2016. Now he looks ahead to Wrestlemania 32 where he seems on a collission course with Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens. KO has been running scared from Sayn. The next chapter in the feud will unfold on Raw!
Chris Jericho went even further to the dark side on Smackdown, literally burning a Y2AJ shirt on the show!
Then at the Roadblock 2016, he went hardcore heel on the Canadian audience, saying that Toronto was the anus of Canada.
Jericho appears on track to face AJ Styles at Wrestlemania 32, and that storyline will continue to develop tonigth on Raw.
On the Divas side, the triple threat match for the Divas Title is set for Wrestlemania 32. Charlotte was able to defeat Natalya at Roadblock 2016 and will be challenged by both Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch at the Dallas supershow. But a second interesting storyline is developing on the undercard, with Lana apparently targetting Daniel Bryan. What is up with this feud and how it will translate to Wrestlemania will occur tonight on Raw!
Here is the WWE.com Five points Preview
Road to WrestleMania now clear for Triple H
Sins of the father – Will WWE’s prodigal son be able to withstand his father’s cruel machinations as the most important battle of his life approaches?
Will #KOMania become #WrestleZaynia? – Kevin Owens has lamented that he doesn’t yet have an Intercontinental Championship challenger for WrestleMania — or #KOMania, as he calls it — but he might have gotten one in a big way when Sami Zayn returned on Raw and attacked his deceitful former friend.
There’s something about Lana – Lana has yet to reveal why she attacked Brie Bella twice in the past week or why she has taken such a malicious interest in the “Total Divas” star, but The Ravishing Russian has certainly picked an opportune time to make Brie’s life miserable.
Burn, baby, burn – Jericho officially burned that bridge — and a separate Y2AJ shirt — on SmackDown
The New Day to defend WWE Tag Team Titles against The League of Nations – The New Day has been rolling of late — especially after eating their Booty-O’s — but can the powerful Rusev and the cunning Del Rio unseat the unicorn horn–wearing champions?
Speaking of the New Day, they have released a Booty O’s tee-shirt complete with a cereal box that it comes in!
