On the Fast Lane.
The 1132nd edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Pepsi Center in Denver, CO. After last week’s Royal Rumble Match, which was won by Roman Reigns, was openly criticized by fans on social media and the fans in attendance for the Royal Rumble event, WWE COO Triple H revealed on this past week’s live episode of SmackDown that he will be on RAW to address the “controversy” surrounding the Royal Rumble, vowing to make an announcement that will shake WWE to its core. With Triple H set to open RAW with his announcement, what will the COO have to say about the Royal Rumble Match and Roman Reigns’ victory? Will The Rock’s involvement to assist Roman Reigns at the Rumble impact this announcement? Could Triple H take Roman Reigns’ WrestleMania main event against Brock Lesnar away?
On a special live edition of SmackDown on Thursday night, Daniel Bryan put a definitive end to his longstanding rivalry with Kane by defeating The Authority’s corporate demon in the rare Casket Match and, as he revealed in a live interview on last week’s RAW, Daniel Bryan will likely have his sights set on the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. What will we see from Daniel Bryan on RAW? Will “The Yes Man” try to get himself a title match or will unfinished business with the likes of Bray Wyatt or friendly Twitter rival Dolph Ziggler take precedence?
As he prepares for the biggest challenge of his young career in the form of facing John Cena at Fast Lane, Rusev was on the receiving end of a scathing verbal assault by Cena on SmackDown, but decided against fighting the “face who runs the place” on that night. Will the United States Champion be looking to fire back against John Cena on RAW? Will these two finally come to blows before they collide at Fast Lane in three weeks?
