Last week’s episode of Monday Night Raw ended on a high note for Shield as the three bothers stood together inside the squared circle as a cohesive unit. However, the trio of Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre kept their smirks, which suggests that something might be brewing.
This has become more significant considering the fact that Dean Ambrose is the only one without a championship in his faction. The “Show Off” did a fabulous job in giving detailed insights about the recently returned Superstar. Not to mention, the WWE Universe has been anticipating a heel turn from the “Lunatic Fringe” since he made his return a couple of months ago. This week’s Raw could provide a definitive answer for the curious fans.
Shawn Michaels will be live at KeyArena in Seattle to provide his insights before the Undertaker and Triple H decimates each other at the Super Show-Down at Melbourne, Australia. Considering the fact that he was interrupted last time by the Undertaker himself, it will be rather interesting to see how this segment unfolds.
A lot of speculations are floating among the wrestling lovers regarding what will transpire at the go-home show of Raw. Here are the five bold predictions for the upcoming episode.
#1 Kane confronts Shawn Michaels
Shawn Michaels couldn’t quite complete what he wished to say the last time he was on Raw, thanks to the man who retired him at WrestleMania 26. This has prompted his return this week to Monday Nights.
However, it is quite possible that he might be interrupted this week by the other half of the “Brothers of Destruction”, Kane. The Undertaker had revealed that the “Big Red Machine” will be in his corner during his match against Triple H. But Kane is yet to make an appearance before the match.
Not to mention, Kane was the last man whom the “Heart Break Kid” faced before his retirement match. Hence, it will be interesting to see how these veterans co-exist in the ring at the same time.
#2 Riott Squad will attack Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey has been an unstoppable force since she has stepped foot in WWE. The former UFC champion has been the epitome of sheer power and anger in the last couple of months.
Hence, the leader of the Riott Squad will bring her A-game against the reigning Raw Women’s champion. Both the opponents will be looking to gain momentum for their team ahead of their match next Sunday.
At the closing moment of the match, the Riott Squad might execute an attack on the Women’s champion to gain the upper hand before they meet again next Sunday. This shall force the Bella Twins to come to the rescue for their partner, leading to a six-women turmoil in the ring.
#3 Tough Night for Baron Corbin
This Monday night would be a challenging one for the acting General Manager of Raw, Baron Corbin. Last week, Stephanie McMahon gave an ultimatum to him as she mentioned that he must tighten his grip over the show.
She also stated that if the “Lone Wolf” fails to do so, she will have to reconsider about bringing back Kurt Angle as the General Manager of Raw. This has put him in a tough spot.
Hence, he is expected to remain neutral in the six-man tag-team situation this week. Further, for once, he might be fair and transparent in the way he will run Raw.
#4 Kevin Owens and Elias will attack Bobby Lashley
Bobby Lashley is scheduled to face Kevin Owens in a one-on-one match on Raw. Last week, he got better of Elias, not to mention the help he got from Lio Rush.
For the last couple of weeks, the motor-mouthed Cruiserweight has become a pain point for the “PrizeFighter” and the “Drifter” as he has mitigated the possibility of attacks on Bobby Lashley.
This week, the two top heels of WWE would love to ensure that they annihilate the “Dominator” and his manager. Notably, John Cena will be joining forces with the former-UFCian next Sunday to take on these two men.
