Six nights before WWE Elimination Chamber, the 1149th edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Long Island, NY. Last week on RAW, Dean Ambrose put the “future of WWE” at risk, threatening to use a steel chair and a stack of concrete blocks to try and end the career of Seth Rollins if The Authority did not give in to his demands. The tactics of “The Lunatic Fringe” would pay off as The Authority had no choice but to give in to Ambrose’s demands, granting him a WWE World Heavyweight Title opportunity against Seth Rollins at WWE Elimination Chamber. However, with the help of Kane and J&J Security, it was Seth Rollins who had the last laugh last week as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion put Dean Ambrose down with his mentor Triple H’s Pedigree in the center of the ring and, on SmackDown, the champion was able to avoid the wrath of Dean Ambrose. With their championship clash coming up this Sunday at WWE Elimination Chamber, what will happen between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose? Will “The Lunatic Fringe” be looking to make a statement at the expense of the champion?
On RAW last week, the brazen NXT Champion Kevin Owens made his debut on RAW, confronting and even assaulting United States Champion John Cena before disrespectfully stomping his foot on the United States Title belt. As a result, Kevin Owens has the biggest match of his WWE career this Sunday at WWE Elimination Chamber when the reigning NXT Champion goes one-on-one with John Cena! With John Cena scheduled to be on RAW for his U.S. Open Challenge, what will the United States Champion have to say about Kevin Owens’ attack last week and their match this Sunday?
Also on RAW, the cast of the upcoming movie “Entourage” will make an appearance as Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Kevin Dillon, & Jerry Ferrara will appear as the RAW Guest Stars of the night. What kind of shenanigans will these four actors get into on what will, no doubt, be a raucous episode of RAW?
