Putting Down The Viper.
The 1119th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, NY. Last week, WWE COO Triple H made the announcement that, at Survivor Series, John Cena will captain Team Cena in a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Tag Match against The Authority’s Team Authority and Triple H gave Cena the option to handpick the four Superstars who will join his team. However, what Triple H did not mention is the lengths that The Authority would go to in order to discourage Superstars from joining Team Cena as, after seeing a conversation between John Cena and Dolph Ziggler, The Authority’s Director of Operations Kane would take it upon himself to try and punish the Intercontinental Champion and, after a failed attempt on RAW, Kane would exact the punishment on SmackDown where Kane would not only defeat Dolph Ziggler after a chokeslam, but Kane would plant the Intercontinental Champion with a second chokeslam after the match. Kane then used his power as the Director of Operations to make an impromptu match between Seth Rollins and Dolph Ziggler, which “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” won with ease. After seeing what happened to potential Team Cena member Dolph Ziggler, will any Superstar be willing to step forward and join Cena in his fight against The Authority?
On last week’s RAW, Big Show & Mark Henry had the opportunity to win the WWE Tag Team Titles from Gold & Stardust, but Mark Henry would have a completely different agenda as Mark Henry would not only level “The World’s Largest Athlete” with three World’s Strongest Slams and a big splash on RAW, but “The World’s Strongest Man” would put Big Show through the ringside barricade on SmackDown! With Big Show no doubt looking for revenge against his former friend, will we witness another titanic clash between these two big men on RAW?
In a budding rivalry between two of WWE’s most unbalanced Superstars, Bray Wyatt has claimed that Dean Ambrose is a “monster” just like him, saying that Ambrose’s “sins” will stain him and that “she still cries”. While the world tries to decipher just what “The Eater of Worlds” is talking about, will Dean Ambrose respond to Bray Wyatt on RAW? What else will Bray have to say about “The Lunatic Fringe”?
