1.) Who's next for Brock Lesnar?
Mere weeks after suffering the most brutal loss in his 12-year career, John Cena rose to the challenge in a valiant attempt to unseat Brock Lesnar as WWE World Heavyweight Champion. However, thanks to Seth Rollins’ ambush to Cena that ended the match in a disqualification, followed by Cena’s thwarting of Rollins’ post-match Money in the Bank cash-in attempt, the WWE Universe remains subjugated by The Beast Incarnate.
Since the Cenation leader was denied his chance to reclaim his illustrious prize from The Conqueror, will a new Superstar emerge to challenge Lesnar for the throne? Also, following his brazen interference and post-match Curb Stomp to Lesnar, has Rollins made himself a target of both of last night’s main event participants? Perhaps we’ll get some clarity tonight on Raw.
2.) The sequel no one ask for
Well, we’re never going to hear the end of it now, are we? Thanks in no small part to a distraction from “Damien Mizdow,” The Miz stole a victory from Dolph Ziggler to become the Intercontinental Champion for a momentous fourth time, ensuring that we’re in for more braggadocios behavior from the so-called “A-Lister” in the weeks ahead.
However, will Ziggler ensure that the fourth installment in Miz’s Intercontinental Championship franchise is a dud? Expect The Showoff to look for retribution tonight.
3.) The power cosmic
Gold & Stardust brought out their ravenous side in search of something they refer to as the “Cosmic Key,” and it’s that quest that brought the bizarre duo on a collision course with WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos at Night of Champions. The space-faring Superstars ensnared the titles from the charismatic twins, evidently accomplishing their bewildering, intergalactic mission.
Where will Gold & Stardust rocket off to next? We’ll hopefully find out tonight.
4.) Like a Black Widow, baby
In a bout plagued by family drama and mind games, AJ Lee defeated titleholder Paige and Nikki Bella to become Divas Champion for an impressive third time, tying Eve for the most reigns with the butterfly-emblazoned prize.
AJ might have reclaimed her “baby,” but The Diva of Tomorrow won’t let this defeat go lightly. As for Nikki Bella, there’s pretty much nothing she won’t do these days to get what she wants. Will AJ be preyed upon tonight on Raw?
5.) Welcome back, Ambrose
Seth Rollins just might be regretting that whole cinder block thing right now. Dean Ambrose reemerged last night at Night of Champions, responding to his former “brother’s” open challenge and giving Mr. Money in the Bank a beating that has been more than a month in the making.
Ambrose got some payback on Rollins, who nearly ended his career with a savage assault on the Aug. 18 edition of Raw. However, we imagine there’s more mayhem in store for the calculating Shield turncoat. Will Ambrose strike again on Raw?
