Monday Night Raw is going to be extremely important this week as it is getting closer and closer to WrestleMania 32 with each passing day. Roadblock is out of the way and all the superstars are focused on their matches for the early April Pay-Per-View. Triple H is still WWE Champ and now must deal with Roman Reigns; meanwhile, after a brutal match, Dean Ambrose must focus on Brock Lesnar.
The official preview for Monday Night Raw has been revealed on WWE.com, and it looks like it will be a packed show. While it may not say anything about the “Beast Incarnate,” the Live Events page says that Brock Lesnar will be present and he’s going to want to hurt someone.
Road to WrestleMania now clear for for Triple H
Triple H was able to hold on to the WWE World Heavyweight Title by defeating Dean Ambrose at Roadblock, but now he has to wait and see when Roman Reigns will return. Rumors are flying that the big dog is going to be back and he wants to make the champ pay for the beatdown given a few weeks ago.
Sins of the father
Shane McMahon has now seen what his father, Vince McMahon, is capable of, and it doesn’t look good for the prodigal son. Last week, Shane-O Mac had to deal with his father sending security guards after him, and he handled himself quite well. Still, that’s far from the biggest challenge coming his way.
Now, he will have to face off with The Undertaker in the confines of Hell in a Cell, and Shane is doing everything he can to get ready. Monday Night Raw will be the next example of whatever Vince is going to throw at his son to stop him.
Will #KOMania become #WrestleZaynia?
Kevin Owens has been begging for someone to step up and face him at WrestleMania 32, but he never figured it would be Sami Zayn. Not only has the NXT star now moved up to be a full-time member of WWE’s main roster, but it looks like he will be going after the Intercontinental Title as well.
Owens may end up getting multiple opponents for his belt as rumors of a multi-man ladder match for the Intercontinental Title have been swirling. WrestleMania 32 may end up seeing another vicious bout for the belt and Owens may have to fend off at least three or five other superstars.
There’s something about Lana
Lana has been tormenting Brie Bella as of late, and no-one can quite figure out why she does. Not only has she not been accompanying Rusev to the ring anymore, but she’s been out and trying to get more physical which is just odd.
Now, is WWE leading up to Lana having her first real match? What Culture is reporting that Lana has heat on her from backstage once again, but it looks as if they are working toward her first ever match.
Burn, baby, burn
Chris Jericho had his second heel turn in the matter of a month when he betrayed AJ Styles yet again. The team of Y2AJ was a good one, but it was very short-lived, and Jericho proved he is totally done with the partnership after burning their team shirts.
It looks as if there will be an AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho IV at WrestleMania 32, and possibly a stipulation added onto it as well.
Who is next for The New Day?
The New Day may have taken out two members of the League of Nations at Roadblock, but there are two others who are ready for them. The current WWE Tag Team Champions want to hold on to their titles, but it looks like Rusev and Alberto Del Rio are ready to go after them.

With each passing Monday Night Raw, WWE superstars and fans are one step closer to WrestleMania 32. It looks like WWE really wants to have a huge show on Monday night now that Roadblock is out of the way, and it’s a clear path to the biggest event of the year. A lot is going to happen; and, with Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose, Triple H, and a possibly returning Roman Reigns under one roof, it’s going to get rough.
