WWE RAW airs tonight from Greenville, South Carolina and will be first date of monster run for the company with 16 live events in the next 10 days with most of them scattered across Europe. Before the show goes overseas, the story between the Authority of WWE execs Triple H and his wife Stephanie McMahon rolls on to the Survivor Series pay per view on November 24th in Boston, Massachusetts. Read below for Pro Wrestling Examiner's analysis into what to expect on this week's episode of WWE RAW.
Daniel Bryan and CM Punk got thrown into a combined program last week with the Wyatt Family, the creepy from-the-swamp cult-like trio lead by the maniacal Bray Wyatt. Bryan is apparently out of the WWE title picture after being screwed out of the title for months. Punk has finally beaten Paul Heyman down to end their long feud. So how will the Best in the World and WWE's "YES!" man respond to this new threat? Why have the Wyatts targeted these two former World Champions? The answers to those questions should become clearer.
John Cena nearly lost the new World Heavyweight Championship last week when the Money in the Bank holder Damian Sandow cashed-in his anytime anywhere World title shot after laying out Cena. Exploiting his arm injurt, Sandow had what many considered the best match of his young WWE career only to fall the comeback of WWE's Superman, John Cena. It will be interesting how both Cena and Sandow move on to this week's RAW. Expect Sandow to get some of his esoteric holier-than-thou mojo bac with either a singles match victory or possibly sealing up a rematch with Cena for the World title down the line.
The Big Show may have been fired, but he still found his way onto RAW to cause chaos for the Authority. Look for the World's Largest Athlete to continue his war against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon on RAW this week, as well new details on his big lawsuit which may be a current for a big Wrestlemania story line in the coming months.
