Says WWE.com: Seth Rollins returned in epic fashion at Extreme Rules, destroying Roman Reigns and setting his sights on the WWE World Heavyweight Championship he never lost. What will The Architect’s first move be when he returns to Raw?
The focus of the show will shift from Roman vs. AJ to Roman vs Seth, but where does Rollins fit in?
Shane and Stephanie McMahon were surprisingly absent from the Extreme Rules PPV, but are sure to be back in a prominent role on Raw. The last time he was on TV, Seth Rollins was aligned with the Authority, but things have changed. Will Rollins re-team with Stephanie? Or will he join Shane’s side? The next chapter in the McMahon Family power struggle is sure to be a big part of Raw.
Charlotte was able to defeat Natalya to retain the WWE Women’s Title. She had the help of Dana Brooke, who is apparently now aligned with the Flair family as a body guard. Brooke and Natalya will likely pair off for a feud, leaving the #1 contendership for the Women’s Title open to new challengers. Who will step up for the next title shot?
The New Day had a thunderous reaction from the New Jersey fans and made quick work of the Vaudevillains. A new challenging team will emerge on Raw. Will it be the Club, fresh off their victory at Extreme Rules? Will it be the Dudley Boyz, still after another reign as champs? Or perhaps the Shining Stars? Either way, the triumphant New Day will be on Raw with a major promo segment.
Baron Corbin finally defeated Dolph Ziggler at Extreme Rules. What’s next for Corbin as he moves up the WWE card?
The Intercontinental Title Fatal Four Way match ended up being one of the highlights of the PPV. The Miz retained the IC title over 3 huge opponents, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and Cesaro. Some combination of these guys will wrestle on Raw, leading up to another title match for the Miz. There is also a possibility of a Miz TV segment, either for Raw or Smackdown this week.
Dean Ambrose put Chris Jericho backfirst onto tacks including some sick coverage of tacks embedded in Jericho’s elbow. Ambrose got a big win and has regained some momentum. This feud could continue on Raw, or they could move in new directions. Expect a promo from Dean on Raw.
All this plus Becky Lynch, The Golden Truth, Big Cass and much more!
