WWE news: SummerSlam fallout continues on Monday Night Raw in Anaheim

According to an Aug. 18 report from Mstars News, fallout from the SummerSlam 2014 pay-per-view spectacular continues on WWE Monday Night Raw at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The biggest item that needs to be addressed tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw is Nikki Bella's heel turn. Bella shocked the WWE Universe by smashing her sister, Brie Bella, to the mat during her SummerSlam match with WWE head honcho Stephanie McMahon.

Nikki Bella appeared to align herself with McMahon, Triple H and The Authority, but she didn't explain why. Tonight on WWE Monday Night Raw in Anaheim, Bella is expected to address the crowd and provide reasons for her heel turn. Bella crushing her sister was easily the most shocking heel turn in the WWE this year, besides Seth Rollins' turn a few months back.

Elsewhere on WWE Monday Night Raw, 15-time WWE Heavyweight Champion, John Cena, will likely address the crowd on his loss to Brock Lesnar last night at SummerSlam. Lesnar, 37, demolished Cena with 16 German suplexes, en route to a one-sided victory. Lesnar isn't expected to be on hand tonight at WWE Monday Night Raw, but his advocate, Paul Heyman, will be.

Heyman is expected to cut a promo to hype Lesnar's accomplishments, and Cena is penciled in to respond. In other matters, Roman Reigns is expected to start up a new feud with Triple H, since he's likely to face him next month at the Night of Champions pay-per-view. Since Reigns successfully took out Randy Orton at SummerSlam, Triple H might be the next heel for him to take out before his Wrestlemania 31 clash with Lesnar.

The WWE hasn't officially booked Lesnar vs. Reigns yet for Wrestlemania 31, but their victories at SummerSlam certainly set up what could be one of the biggest matches in promotion history. Also on tap for WWE Monday Night Raw, fans will get to see the aftermath of the Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose Lumberjack Match. What will the fallout be? In all likelihood, the feud between Ambrose and Rollins isn't over just yet.

Ambrose and Rollins have amazing inside-the-ring chemistry, so that is a feud that might have some lasting power. In other matters, WWE Monday Night Raw in Anaheim might feature Rusev and AJ Lee starting up new angles with different opponents than who they took on at SummerSlam 2014. Rusev's feud with Jack Swagger is probably over, and AJ Lee might get matched with someone other than Paige for a little while.

Let's face it: Lee and Paige are the two best wrestlers the WWE has on the divas roster. Their feud might pick up again a couple months from now, but the WWE might want to script Lee against someone else to give other superstars a chance in the spotlight. Who might that be? Time will tell how the situation pans out. A feud between Lee and Nikki Bella might generate a little buzz. WWE Monday Night Raw airs on Aug. 18 at 8 p.m. on the USA Network.
