‘WWE Monday Night Raw’ Preview: After ‘Survivor Series’ Loss, Will Roman Reigns Go For Universal Championship?

After the final Elimination Match at WWE Survivor Series was won by SmackDown Live, will United States Champion Roman Reigns turn his focus to WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens, as the superstars of Monday Night Raw turn their attention to WWE Roadblock: End of the Line in December? What will Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley have to say to the five men who made up the only team from the red brand that failed to win at Survivor Series? Will Reigns be next in line to challenge Owens, as rumors suggest, or will someone else earn that distinction?

Since Cesaro and Sheamus were the only tag team that survived in their match against Team SmackDown at Survivor Series, Commissioner Stephanie McMahon announced that they would receive a title match against The New Day at Monday Night Raw in Toronto. After a surprisingly poor performance at the PPV — being the first tag team eliminated from the Raw brand — will the historic title reign of Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods come to an end on WWE Raw?

Raw Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair was a survivor at Sunday’s PPV alongside Bayley, who picked up the match-winning pin against SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch. Based on the post-match beat-down that Charlotte gave Bayley, the WWE’s premiere “hugger” could be challenging for the title at Roadblock: End of the Line in December.

Although the match ended due to outside interference, The Brian Kendrick left Survivor Series with the WWE Cruiserweight Championship. With the title and the division staying on Monday Night Raw as 205 Live is set to premiere on the WWE Network, who will be the next competitor to challenge for the title?

WWE Roadblock 2016 will be the next PPV featuring stars from Monday Night Raw. Very little information about Roadblock: End of the Line had been confirmed prior to Monday Night Raw, although a tweet from the arena hosting the event is promoting Kevin Owens vs. Roman Reigns as the main event. The listing at their website clearly states “Card subject to change,” however. WWE Roadblock will air live on Sunday, December 18, from the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As more information is confirmed, it will be updated at WWE’s official Roadblock preview page.
