Tonight’s Monday Night Raw is scheduled to be a really big one for WWE, as it’s the go-home show for Hell in a Cell, and it is going to be a packed night. A lot of questions remain right now, and it’s going to be a Raw that not only features Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker but WWE Legends such as Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair as well. Will “Stone Cold” Steve Austin show up? Will Rusev suffer backlash for getting engaged to Lana in real life?
First things first: the saga of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and whether he will appear on Raw tonight or not. He was first advertised to appear and then not by WWE. Then, he was advertised to appear again, but Austin himself said that he would not be appearing on the show and only doing the Stone Cold Podcast afterward with Brock Lesnar as his guest.
It’s now known that Rusev and Lana got engaged in real life, and it was made incredibly public when multiple sites reported it. WWE was said to have known about it, but Vince McMahon wasn’t happy with it considering Rusev was involved with Summer Rae in storylines.
Cageside Seats is saying that Monday could be “an interesting day for Rusev at Raw,” and it may come in the form of some sort of on-screen punishment. He already suffered a quick loss last week, but it’s possible that more is actually coming his way.
Lesnar will be on Raw, but then he’ll be on the Stone Cold Podcast afterward, and rumor has it that a “major angle” will take place at this time. That all remains to be seen, but whatever is going to happen will happen this evening.
Kane has a big contest ahead of him with a match against Seth Rollins for the WWE Title this Sunday, but much more is on the line. If Demon Kane loses, Corporate Kane must resign his position. Still, tonight will likely be their final meeting and interaction before the big match.
John Cena is heading for some time off very soon, and he’ll be gone for around two months, but that means the United States Title needs to change hands soon. Rumor has it that Dolph Ziggler will not only win the title at Hell in a Cell but turn heel in the process.
The only problem right now is that there is no match scheduled between the two, and one needs to be put in place. If it’s going to be confirmed for the PPV, then expect some type of interaction between Cena and Ziggler tonight and for WWE to make the match official.
Tonight’s Monday Night Raw is scheduled to be huge, and there will be a lot of big names appearing on the show. Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, Brock Lesnar, and The Undertaker are just a few of them, but “Stone Cold” Steve Austin may or may not be there as WWE prepares for Hell in a Cell.
