After an impressive Money in the Bank pay-per view, tonight’s Monday Night Raw has been highly anticipated.
The the one storyline that has everyone buzzing is the triangle that is Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, and Paul Heyman. Lesnar is expected to appear on Raw tonight after his manager and Punk’s alleged best friend, Heyman, betrayed Punk on Sunday. Punk was seconds away from winning the money in the bank contract before being attacked by Heyman with multiple shots with a ladder.
Expect Punk to confront Heyman while beginning his SummerSlam feud with Lesnar.
Speaking of money in the bank contracts, Damien Sandow won the contract for the World Heavyweight Title shot while Randy Orton won the contract for the WWE title show. Expect both Sandow and Orton to cut promos at some point.
It also will be interesting to see what angle WWE takes with Rob Van Dam’s return. Van Dam is expected to appear tonight on Raw. Van Dam was close to winning the All-Stars money in the bank match until being on the wrong end of a RKO by Orton.
It also will be interesting to see if new feuds begin for WWE Champion John Cena and World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio.
Recent speculation suggested that Cena would feud with Daniel Bryan leading to a match between the two at SummerSlam.
As for Del Rio, it is unclear what direction WWE will take with the World Heavyweight champion. Del Rio defeated Dolph Ziggler via disqualification on Sunday after being hit with the Divas title by AJ Lee.
Ziggler will likely have something to say on the matter.
After dropping a teaser for Money in the Bank, Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family were not a part of the pay-per view. Though, expect The Wyatt Family to be a part of Monday Night Raw.
