Monday Night Raw is jumping across the world this week as WWE is on their tour of Europe, and things have started off quite bad with Bray Wyatt heading home with a calf injury. Still, there are plenty of other stars on the tour and it looks like this week’s show is going to try to continue the big feel and great action of the past couple of weeks. But questions remain: Is Shane McMahon running things again? Will The Undertaker make a surprise appearance?
The full Monday Night Raw preview has been posted on the WWE website, and it lists the key points for this week, but so much more could surprise fans. The Undertaker is on the European tour with WWE, and he’s been pulled from, added to, and pulled again from Live Events, but as of now, he’s not scheduled for Raw.
Weirder things have happened though.
Will rivalries reach a boiling point?
Feuds have been building between a few talents for weeks now, and fans want them to happen more than anything. Chris Jericho and Dean Ambrose feud plans were in the works months and months ago, but Sportsrageous is reporting that they are finally going ahead with them and that feud will come to a head at Payback.
Can Reigns continue to silence his critics as “the guy” in WWE?
Roman Reigns is the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and he’s not doing a very good job on winning over the fans who are in attendance at episodes of Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. He’s trying to prove he’s not a good guy, not a bad guy, but that he is…the guy.
The big problem is that he’s not winning over the fans watching at home either. Ratings for Monday Night Raw are falling and it appears as if the viewers are showing WWE that they’re just sick and tired of Reigns as the top “guy.”
Might Shane McMahon run his third consecutive Raw?
With The Authority nowhere to be seen, Shane McMahon has been running Monday Night Raw, and he’s been doing it very well. It’s not yet known though if he is in London with the rest of the roster and looking to bring the fans yet another incredible show.
Currently, he’s not scheduled for Raw in London, but he wasn’t added to last week’s show until early on Monday.
Is Emma in for an Irish Lass Kicking?
Emma is certainly making a big name for herself ever since arriving back on the WWE main roster, and she’s going after only the biggest stars. She has turned on the fans and could care less about them now as her focus is on her and her alone.
Who will advance in the No. 1 Contender’s Tag Team Tournament?
The WWE tag team tournament to determine the number one contenders for the WWE Tag Team Titles held by The New Day started a week ago. Now, half of the teams are done and only four remain — The Dudley Boyz, Enzo Amore & Big Cass, The Usos, and The Vaudevillains.
It’s time for a huge clash between the Dudleyz and the team of Enzo and Big Cass that has been brewing since the popular tag team was called up from NXT. Fans are truly wondering though if two other intruders will show up again.
WWE is right in the middle of their European tour, and things have already taken a bad turn with the loss of Bray Wyatt due to injury. Monday Night Raw is going to bring the stars full force though and it looks like there may be trouble between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn as well as Chris Jericho and Dean Ambrose. The tag team tournament continues. Will The Undertaker make a surprise appearance? Only time will tell.
