We have quite the Monday Night Raw in store for us tonight on the first episode following Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Read ahead for a preview of what to expect, and keep it here at 8:00 p.m. Eastern for live results from the show.
Tonight on Raw, we have a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, and it’s not either of the people we expected. After Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns in the title match last night, Dean Ambrose cashed in his Money in the Bank contract, beat Rollins, and emerged victorious. Within the span of a few minutes, all three former Shield members held the title, a fact which the three will surely discuss this evening.
There’s also a lot to cover when it comes to the feud between John Cena and A.J. Styles. Cena had been saying on Raw that the result of that match could determine whether he has a place in the new era of WWE, and as we all know, Styles defeated Cena on Money in the Bank with the help of The Club. What is the status of John Cena post-Money in the Bank? How does A.J. Styles feel about his friends intervening in the match?
Plus, we can also look forward to seeing heel Natalya, and WWE.com‘s official preview suggests another iconic figure from SmackDown history might return. Who could that be?
We’ll find out this evening when Monday Night Raw airs at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on the USA Network.
