After a Monday Night Raw that saw the beginning of feuds between Daniel Bryan and John Cena, and CM Punk and Brock Lesnar; expect tonight’s edition of Raw to build on those two feuds as we continue towards SummerSlam.
Lesnar is not expected to appear on tonight’s edition of Raw. However, both Punk and Paul Heyman are expected to appear. It may be difficult for Punk and Heyman to top their segment from last week on Raw, though, both are great at cutting promos.
Perhaps we may see Punk face Curtis Axle. During his promo last week, Punk said he would destroy anyone who stood in the way of him getting his hands on Heyman. Axle figures to be one of those people.
Moving on to the feud between Cena and Bryan, it will be interesting to see what direction WWE takes with this storyline. The expectation is that the feud will include the new E! Show “Total Divas” as well as the Bella twins.
The current plan is for Bryan to defeat Cena at SummerSlam only to lose the WWE title to Randy Orton on the same night. WWE is currently selling the idea that Orton was injured on Friday Night Smackdown, so the Money in the Bank winner is not expected to compete tonight.
The other Money in the Bank winner, Damien Sandow, will likely continue his feud with his former partner Cody Rhodes.
It will be interesting to see what impact The Wyatt Family makes tonight. It appears that WWE is building towards a feud between Bray Wyatt and Kane. No word on if Kane will appear tonight.
It also appears that Mark Henry will feud with The Shield. There was talk recently of Henry turning face and that likely would happen if he feuds with The Shield.
There currently is no feud for World Heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio. This is pure speculation, but may it be possible that Rob Van Dam feuds with Del Rio?
The Big Show is also expected to return on Raw tonight.
