The final WWE Monday Night Raw before Extreme Rules this Sunday takes place tonight from the Scottrade Center in St.Louis, Missouri. The end of last week’s show featured The Wyatt Family decimating John Cena. The show also featured Kane viciously laying out WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan and the continuation of The Shield vs Evolution feud. What can we expect on tonight’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw?
Bryan is confirmed for tonight’s show and WWE executive Stephanie McMahon has stated that she will apologize to the champion for the attack from last week, when Bryan was sent away on a stretcher. I feel that McMahon will mock apologize, Bryan won’t buy it and she will send out Kane who will attack Bryan again.
WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair will be on tonight’s show, as we reported earlier today. It would be assumed that Flair will get involved somehow in The Shield vs Evolution segment tonight. You would think that Flair will align himself with Evolution since he was a former member of the group. Expect to see Flair in a managerial role with the group heading into this Sunday’s Extreme Rules featuring the two teams.
Also on tonight’s show we will see the finals of the Intercontinental Title Tournament to determine the number one contender for the title. The match features Bad News Barrett vs Rob Van Dam, with the winner facing IC Champion, Big E this Sunday at the pay-per-view. I would expect Barrett to win here to continue the push he is receiving at this time.
We will also see action movie star Hugh Jackman on the show, as he is the guest star for the night. Jackman is starring in the new movie, “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, which comes out in theatres May 23. Dolph Ziggler and Damien Sandow have been feuding on Twitter regarding Jackman, so expect something to happen between the threesome.
You can watch tonight’s WWE Monday Night Raw on the USA Network starting at 8 p.m. ET.
