WWE Monday Night Raw Preview for 08.24.2015: Major Angle Planned w/Returning Star, Fallout from Controversial Summerslam 2015 Screwjob Finishes


WWE is gearing up for a huge episode of WWE Monday Night Raw for Monday August 24, 2015.

The show will be eminating live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York, which will be the third consecutive sold out show from that building.

After the Saturday NXT Takeover Brooklyn show as well as a huge four hour Summerslam 2015 PPV, Raw is expected to move past those shows and set the table for the next few months finishing out 2015.

The keys of the show will be fallout in the two main event matches – Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar and John Cena vs. Seth Rollins.

John Cena lost in his bid to take the WWE Title from Seth Rollins, instead Rollins won to take the US Title. The storyline had Jon Stewart turn heel on Cena and join the Authority. Stewart is not officially booked for Raw, but could be a part of the show in some way, especially if his storyline is continuing.

The other major match was of course the Undertaker/Brock Lesnar match, ending in controversy with a Russo-rific ref confusion storyline. In the match, Undertaker tapped and the bell rang, but the ref overturned it and Undertaker won after a low blow.

Huge storylines are being rumored for the show. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said on his radio show that he was advised by WWE insiders to attend Raw on Monday because it will be a huge storyline that sets up a key match at Wrestlemania 32.

Raw is also said to have a huge returning star make a TV appearance Sting is reportedly in town in time for Raw and could appear on the show to start a new storyline.

Other items expected on the show is final hype for Tough Enough 2015’s finale and contestants, more on the Diva’s revolution with the implications of Becky Lynch pinning the Bellas, and a celebration of the new tag team champions – the New Day
