1.) Halting Evolution
To say they put their bodies on the line at Extreme Rules is an understatement, as The Hounds of Justice pulled out all the stops in a stunning battle against the combined might of Evolution. United as ever, The Shield emerged from the IZOD Center victorious, vanquishing a legendary trio of opponents in a match that saw Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns showcase their wealth of talent — and their willingness to take risks when their reputation is on the line or their toughness is called into question.
But with WWE COO Triple H as the figurehead of Evolution, where do these two teams go from here? Surely The Game isn’t yet done with the black-clad trio. Might pay-per-view tensions spill onto Raw? Tune in tonight to find out.
2.) Spreading The New Face of Fear
After one of the most haunting victories in WWE history, Bray Wyatt comes to Raw with sights set on … well, the whole world.
His victory over John Cena in a truly unsettling Steel Cage Match at Extreme Rules may have served only to further spread The Eater of Worlds’ message of fear and loathing, as the disturbing appearance of “Little Johnny” at ringside literally stopped the Cenation leader in his tracks and spun him into the arms of Bray Wyatt — and Sister Abigail.
With his sway threatening to encompass more members of the WWE Universe on a weekly basis, what new message might Bray Wyatt have on Raw?
3.) Bryan extinguishes Kane
He may have gone through hellfire and brimstone to do it, but Daniel Bryan walked out of Extreme Rules with his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in tow.
Though he may have extended it last night, when it comes to The Beard, it seems like his is the most vulnerable of title reigns in recent memory. The Authority’s mad-on for the submission specialist is well-known, as Stephanie McMahon herself made an overt attempt to have Bryan sit out his scheduled title match against the Demon Kane at the pay-per-view.
Now that Extreme Rules has come and gone and Bryan has survived The Devil’s Favorite Demon, what new, hellish roadblocks does The Authority have in store for the fan-favorite WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Find out tonight on USA Network at 8/7 CT, and be sure to tune in to the Raw Pre-Show at 7:30 p.m. ET and Backstage Pass right after Raw!
4.) Title-bearer of Bad News
We’ve got some bad news for you, WWE Universe — there’s a new Intercontinental Champion in town. Sunday at Extreme Rules, Bad News Barrett delivered the goods in an all-out brawl against entering champion Big E, as the British grappler reclaimed the illustrious title in a hard-fought championship bout.
Now that Bad News is the new gold standard, what does it mean for the rest of the WWE locker room? And who might step up to knock Barrett off his podium? Find out tonight on USA Network at 8/7 CT!
5.) Paige ushers in new Divas era
In her first Divas Title defense, Paige defeated the always-intimidating Tamina in a hard-fought match at Extreme Rules. Though her victory over former Divas Champion AJ Lee may have come as a shock to the WWE Universe, the former WWE NXT standout has developed a quick track record inside the WWE ring.
Now that she’s proven capable of answering the call under the pressure-packed environment of a pay-per-view, what’s next for the Divas Champion? And, for that matter, what’s next for an embattled Divas division that boasts serious threats from all corners? From AJ to “Total Divas” stars The Bella Twins, Cameron, Naomi and Natalya, Paige has a target painted squarely on her back. Who will step up next to challenge for the butterfly-emblazoned title?
