Tonight’s WWE Monday Night Raw takes place in Birmingham, Alabama. We are one week removed from a historic show as we saw Daniel Bryan appear as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, The Shield aligning with the champion, an epic promo by Paul Heyman on Brock Lesnar ending “The Streak” and Cesaro being the new Paul Heyman guy. What can we expect on tonight’s show?
The show tonight will feature a tribute to The Ultimate Warrior, who passed away this past Tuesday at the age of 54. I wouldn’t expect it to be just a whole show showing his best matches and things like that. Expect to see various WWE personal and talent to have video interviews with their thoughts on Warrior and clips of some of his greatest WWE moments.
Would also expect to see the top matches made for Extreme Rules, which takes in three weeks from the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. From the way Raw ended last week, I would go with Bryan vs Triple H in the main event and the top underneath match by The Shield vs Kane, Randy Orton and Batista. Their was an ad that came out from the Izod Center over the weekend saying John Cena will be facing Bray Wyatt in an “extreme match”, so we will see if that gets made tonight as well.
Think we will see Cesaro and Paul Heyman continue to feud with Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter to lead to a match at an Extreme Rules. The Cesaro/Heyman pairing is the best thing to happen to Cesaro as now he doesn’t have to talk and let Heyman do that aspect for him.
WWE Monday Night Raw starts at 8 p.m. ET on the USA Network.
