The pressure is huge on WWE now that Rollins had to forfeit his title due to injury. After a long time, there is a truckload of anticipation among the fans of WWE that came with the injury with Rollins. They are interested to see how WWE will manage the situation on tonight’s RAW. While the WWE championship is likely to play a major role in this week’s episode there are other segments too that need to be mentioned. Here are the predictions.
Paige is at her best when it comes to playing games. She continued it throughout these past weeks and backed her words with actions afterwards to earn the right to face Charlotte for the Divas title at Survivor Series. This is going to be a good feud though the problem is that a movement is going on among the fans of Sasha Banks to give her a push. And it is a big headache for the creative team. They should give a strong build up for the Paige Charlotte feud by giving the women microphone in hand which is good for business and the so called revolution.
No answer from the Brothers of Destruction
Bray Wyatt and his monsters had taken away the Brothers of Destruction with them and claimed that they had taken out the souls and powers from them. Now that The Wyatt faction has put themselves in a strong position right now, the next booking should be for the Brothers of Destruction to bounce back on the scene. The duo had witnessed different mind games throughout their career and it will not be good for them to be completely outsmarted by the Wyatt family. And also if the traditional Survivor Series match does happen it will be interesting to see if any revelations are done regarding the teammates of the Deadman.
Mid-card titles should be put on a good storyline
US championship was with a good storyline when Del Rio won it from John Cena at HIAC. But since then no build up was done on the next opponent for Del Rio. There is no contender for the title which saw a string of challengers when Cena was holding it.
A similar thing is going on with the IC title. Kevin Owens is a great performer and will make a great champion if an opportunity is given but still WWE is not investing any time to build a proper championship feud for him. Both these titles need a proper direction before Survivor Series and hopefully this would be addressed at this week’s RAW.
What next for the No.1 contender
As Seth Rollins got injured all the plans around the WWE title has drained away. Roman Reigns was the number one contender for the title which he earned by winning a tournament that was held on RAW two weeks prior. He was not handed with the shot like most of the superstars. But now that Rollins is injured the status of Reigns is up in the air. WWE creative should come up with a solid storyline for Reigns because if Reigns had to participate in the upcoming tournament then the build ups from previous weeks will be wasted completely.
The Details of the tournament
WWE has announced a tournament to crown a new WWE champion. All we know that the tournament will have a spot at the Survivor Series pay-per-view. We have no idea about the format of the tournament, the superstars who will be involved and the span of time it will take to execute. All these have to be answered in this week’s RAW and it is the first priority for the Authority to make everything clear about the tournament. Authority will have a big role in this storyline and somehow Seth Rollins decides to show up it will give an interesting angle to the storyline.
