WWE is certainly getting their money’s worth out of Brock Lesnar, as he is appearing more often for the company than he has in a long time. He’ll be back on Monday Night RAW this week, and rumor has it that he’s set to take apart anyone and anything in his path, including Dean Ambrose. With Fastlane approaching, the build for that Pay-Per-View is continuing, and it looks like Chris Jericho‘s plans for AJ Styles may finally be revealed.
The “Five-Point Preview” for Monday Night RAW has been presented by WWE.com, and it details what’s to come on this week’s show. Once again though, it certainly seems as if the focus is on the “Beast Incarnate” and what he’ll do to anyone that crosses him.
Loony and The Beast
One may begin to think that WWE is leaning toward a feud between Lesnar and Ambrose since the focus is on both of them, and not so much the third participant in the Fastlane triple threat — Roman Reigns. He played no part in their interaction last week, and the preview for this week doesn’t really include him either.
If things go as the rumors have stated, Reigns will end up winning the Fastlane match and going on to face Triple H for the WWE Title at WrestleMania 32. Maybe then, Ambrose and Lesnar will begin a feud to lead to the early April PPV, too.
What’s Y2J’s endgame?
This is one of the more interesting storylines currently going on in WWE as Chris Jericho and AJ Styles already had a match with the latter picking up the clean victory. Still, Jericho has been slowly hinting at something more to come, and it could end up being a heel turn.
It’s certainly seeming as if AJ Styles‘ first major feud in WWE is going to be with Chris Jericho, and that’s certainly nothing for fans to be disappointed in. Another match is on the horizon as Jericho laid out the challenge on SmackDown this past week, but Y2J seems to have much more in store for the “Phenomenal One.”
Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks have now formed a bit of a partnership after “The Boss” split from Team B.A.D. It’s a good thing that Banks has someone backing her, too, because Tamina and Naomi didn’t take too kindly to her parting ways with them.
Honestly, it appears as if WWE is building up toward a huge chase for the Divas Championship or maybe the triple threat match that so many want to see — Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte.
Will The Wyatt Family cut The Big Guy down to size?
This past week on SmackDown, Ryback took out Erick Rowan in a one-on-one match and picked up the victory, but that wasn’t the end of it. Braun Strowman was at ringside, and it appeared as if something more is to come between the two behemoths.
A Fastlane match between Strowman and Big Show was rumored for Fastlane, but WWE may end up going with the giant of The Wyatt Family against Ryback instead. This would be a really good test for Strowman if the rumors end up being true and he does move on to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania 32.
By hook or by crook, The Golden Truth is going to end up being a legit tag team in WWE with Goldust and R-Truth. The “Bizarre One” is going to do anything and everything possible to have R-Truth become his new tag team partner, and the strange antics will continue on Monday.
WWE is really getting a lot of exposure and usage out of Brock Lesnar, and it is obvious that it is helping ratings for Monday Night RAW. It’s very interesting though that the focus is primarily on Lesnar and Dean Ambrose, and not so much on Roman Reigns. Things are going to keep building toward Fastlane on RAW, and working toward WrestleMania 32.
