WWE Raw: Live Spoilers for May 8 from London, England


An early look at the results for Monday night’s episode of WWE Raw.

On this Monday’s Raw, the action on the USA Network will not be live for the first time in about seven months.  In November of 2016, the red brand’s show was live in Glasgow, Scotland and with the five hour time difference between that country and the United States, the WWE taped the action and aired it live at the normal 8:00 p.m. ET.

May 8th’s Raw is being held at the 02 Arena in London, England and with it, the same five-hour difference.  So with the show being taped in advance, we have a chance to take a look at some spoilers ahead of Monday night’s show.

Last week on RAW, the landscape for the upcoming months took serious shape and the majority of the intrigue transpired in the main event.  In a scintillating three-way battle, The Miz became number one contender to Dean Ambrose’s Intercontinental title but it wasn’t without controversy.  Both Samoa Joe and Bray Wyatt joined the party and took out Seth Rollins and Finn Balor, respectively.  With RAW‘s next pay-per-view, Extreme Rules, still about a month away, that gives time for these three riveting feuds to really ramp up.

At Payback, Braun Strowman laid the beating of a lifetime on Roman Reigns but the toll was heavy on both men, so much so that neither superstar made it to last Monday’s RAW.  Will they be there tonight?  And will more chaos ensue?

Look for the women’s division to provide some answers on the future of their title.  As of right now, Bayley still technically has a rematch but will another contender emerge?  Last week, “Five Feet of Fury” stood tall.  After verbally degrading the rest of the division, she then picked up a pinfall in a six-woman match.  Is it Sasha’s turn to get involved in a program for the belt?  How about the dominant Nia Jax?  One way or the other, Bliss will soon have her hands full.

It’s already been announced that in London there will be a five-way tag team turmoil match to decide the No. 1 Contender to The Hardy Boyz and the RAW Tag Team Championship.  Will The Golden Truth make the most of this opportunity?  Or maybe Cesaro and Sheamus use their new found aggression to get another shot.  Should be a solid tilt.
