WWE Monday Night Raw preview: Payback build continues

According to a May 12 report from MStars News, build for the WWE's upcoming "Payback" special event continues tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw from the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C. WWE Monday Night Raw, which airs live at 8 p.m. on the USA Network, will feature confirmed appearances by Daniel Bryan, Kane, The Shield, Evolution, Bray Wyatt and John Cena, plus some surprise guests.

Since "Payback" is all about revenge, tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw is expected to have plenty of retreads from their recent "Extreme Rules" special event that went down earlier this month. The Bray Wyatt vs John Cena feud has been building since Wrestlemania 30, and continued on through "Extreme Rules." The men are expected to go at it again at "Payback," so there's one key storyline to watch tonight.

At "Extreme Rules," Cena got psyched out by a demon child that Wyatt walked out to the ring with. Wyatt was able to win the match because he escaped the ring. It seems likely the WWE will script Cena to defeat Wyatt at "Payback," since he's one of the top superstars in the promotion. Cena is one of the WWE's top sellers, so they want to get him back on the winning track. In another familiar WWE feud, Kane and Bryan are expected to continue to squabble tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw.

Kane is looking for payback after getting defeated by Bryan at "Extreme Rules," and tonight will give him the opportunity to get some. In other matters, The Shield continues to feud with the legendary Evolution tag-team of Randy Orton, Triple H and Batista. The WWE hasn't officially announced that they'll be battling each other at "Payback," but it's very likely that they will. Look for WWE to continue the feud between The Shield and Evolution, with a match tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw.

Elsewhere, its expected that Sheamus is about to make a turn to heel. Will that happen tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, or will the WWE save it for another day? Time will tell, and WWE Universe will be keeping a close eye on that situation. In other matters, Rusev is still undefeated and he might be back in action tonight. Additionally, Paige will likely be putting her WWE Divas championship on the line.
