WWE Monday Night Raw preview: Payback fallout continues

See also

According to a June 1 report from Inside Pulse Wrestling, plenty of questions remain from last night's WWE Payback special event. The Shield defeated Evolution at WWE Payback, so what happens to their rivalry? Is John Cena done feuding with Bray Wyatt? Who is the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion?

All of those questions will likely be answered tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, which airs live at 8 p.m. on the USA Network. Tonight's episode will be taped at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, not far from where WWE Payback was filmed last night. With so many loose storylines that need to be tied up, tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw is a must-watch event.

Brie Bella told WWE head honcho Stephanie McMahon that she quit, and then proceeded to slap her in the face. That was one of the highlights of last night's WWE Payback special event, but now the question remains of what the fallout will be from her actions. McMahon told Daniel Bryan that he needed to give up the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt or else Bella would get fired.

Since Bella quit and Bryan didn't give up the belt, no one knows what will happen to the title. In all likelihood, McMahon will strip Bryan of the belt and make him fight for it again at a future WWE pay-per-view event. Elsewhere, WWE Universe is dying to know what the future holds for The Brotherhood.

Last night at WWE Payback, Cody Rhodes and Goldust appeared to break up following a loss to Rybaxel. Tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, fans will likely learn if they are done for good as a tag-team partnership. Rhodes and Goldust are brothers in real life, but their break-up has been rumored for months. It appeared to finally happen at WWE Payback.

Also on tonight's episode of WWE Monday Night Raw, fans are going to find out what's next for The Shield and Evolution. The groups have been feuding with each other since last month's Extreme Rules special event, but the culmination may have been last night at WWE Payback. The Shield defeated Evolution and are now more popular than ever, so it'll be interesting to see what's next for them.

In other action, Paige will likely take on another WWE Diva, one night after defeating Alicia Fox. Additionally, WWE fans are going to learn what's next in the rivalry between John Cena and Bray Wyatt. Tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw, fans will also likely be treated to cameo appearances from Bo Dallas, Rusev and Adam Rose.
