Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw may not have a long list of things on the card, but there is a lot of speculation going around as to all that could happen. There are only two confirmed matches at this time, but they’re both big enough to main event any pay-per-view at any time of the year. At the same time, there will be an ongoing storyline that picks up speed as WWE fans keep wondering if The Shield is actually going to reunite.
The official website of WWE released their full preview for tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw, and it’s going to be interesting to see where they go from the events of last week. It is blatantly obvious that they’re building up to something or are they just trolling the entire WWE Universe?
Roman Reigns battles The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship
Last week on Raw, Roman Reigns faced off with The Miz in a non-title match which ended with the “Big Dog” picking up a huge win. After it was all over, The Miztourage outnumbered him and destroyed him with chairs before leaving him lying face down in the middle of the ring.
To add insult to injury, The Miztourage stood over Reigns and mocked The Shield.
As recently reported by Inquisitr, there are strong rumors that WWE is going to reunite The Shield for a huge match at TLC next month. Those flames were fanned last week by The Miz, Curtis Axel, and Bo Dallas all mocking the pose of the “Hounds of Justice,” and the taunting will continue tonight.
The Kingslayer aims to conquer The Monster Among Men
Last week, Braun Strowman showed his dominance by demolishing Curt Hawkins before taking out one-half of the Raw Tag Team Champions in Dean Ambrose. Now, it’s going to be his partner’s turn to see what he can do as Seth Rollins is going to take his chance against the monster.
The Kingslayer has picked up some huge victories in his WWE career, but he has never stepped into the ring with a guy like this.
How will Alexa Bliss respond to Mickie James’ attack?
After being able to survive the huge Fatal 5-Way at No Mercy and escape with her Raw Women’s Championship, Alexa Bliss has a veteran that wants to take her shot. Mickie James is tired of being called “old” by the champ, and she’s going to prove to the young superstar that age is nothing but a number.
When will Neville strike again?
Neville may have lost his last chance to get the Cruiserweight Championship back from Enzo Amore, but it was obvious that he felt good by his actions. After he was done, it was time for Strowman and the entire cruiserweight division to get in their shots. Now, Neville has nothing else to lose and it is very possible that he will take out his anger once more, especially after Enzo attacked the former champ with a crutch.
Last week was a pretty huge episode for Team Red and it is going to be difficult to top that one, but WWE is certainly going to try. This evening’s episode of Monday Night Raw will be without Michael Cole for only the second time in 20 years, but the promotion hopes the fans will be alright with Tom Phillips as his replacement. Meanwhile, there will be at least two huge matches and more teases of the comeback of The Shield.
