WWE Raw Preview (15/03/21): All-Might Era; US & Tag Team Title Matches

WWE RAW is under the reign of All-Mighty Bobby Lashley who would move toward his next opponent for Fastlane 2021 on this week’s episode. Two titles will also be defended on the same night. Riddle defends his US Title against Ali while the Hurt Business puts their tag titles on the line against New Day when tonight’s show airs from the Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay, Florida.

One week after his historic title win, Bobby Lashley put his WWE Title on the line against The Miz during the opening segment of last week’s WWE Raw. He said that he would make an example of The A-Lister and stayed true to those words by tapping him out with The Hurt Lock.

With an absolutely dominant win, it was considered to be a warning to the locker room so that nobody dares to step between him and his title as The All-Mighty Era progresses. The question remains whether he will put his title on the line at Fastlane 2021 or he will straight enter WrestleMania 37 as the reigning champion where Drew McIntyre should be his opponent.

Speaking of the Scottish Warrior, he was engaged in a No Disqualification contest against Sheamus that should’ve ended the feud on WWE Raw. But the match ended in a No Contest after a vicious fight between the two participants. Now a rubber match is waiting between the two of them, perhaps at Fastlane 2021.

Reports from Wrestling Observer suggest that Drew McIntyre vs Sheamus will once again go down at the upcoming PPV with the Last Man Standing gimmick attached to it. Plus, there should be one more stipulation added to it via which the winner will go on to WrestleMania 37 by challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title.

Since after winning the United States Title, Riddle is trying to prove himself to be an established mid-card champion and Ali has a problem with that. The RETRIBUTION leader was targeting the Original Bro for weeks complaining about how he should receive a title shot. Now, he officially gets that title match on WWE Raw as he faces Riddle in a one-on-one contest.

The Hurt Business is clad with all gold and the former champions get a huge opportunity to derail their momentums just weeks ahead of WrestleMania 37. Could this be happening? We’ll find out answers on the Fastlane go-home episode.

Nexus vs RETRIBUTION Could Happen At WWE Wrestlemania 37?

WWE reportedly booked a Nexus reunion for WrestleMania 36, last year. Fewer details are available regarding the actual planning of the match which was never culminated as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. But there’s a ‘never say never’ phrase in the professional wrestling industry and there’s always this year.

Nexus vs RETRIBUTION Could Happen At WWE Wrestlemania 37? 24

While speaking to The Dropkick Podcast, Fred Rosser stated that it’s always possible that that the canceled Nexus reunion can happen in 2021. You never know what kind of special guests WWE will end up inviting to make the Show of Shows a spectacle that will span around two days instead of a single day. He even shared an idea of the infamous stable possibly colliding with WWE’s current resident stable on Raw in RETRIBUTION.

“Yeah well most likely, Wrestlemania in Tampa again with the crowd. We’re gonna come back. The Nexus, him being on commentary and he’s gonna rise up from the table and we’re gonna show up and defeat Retribution. I shouldn’t have dropped the news but, oops but it will be fun.”

Nexus coming back to the WWE has always been an anticipated incident ever since the group was dismantled, quicker than expected. Whatever the plan would be from WWE’s part, Fred Rosser seems game to make a WWE return of some kind. He’s been wrestling for NJPW in recent times who is also impressed by the New Japan Strong. But that certainly doesn’t rule out a WWE return.

Nexus vs RETRIBUTION Could Happen At WWE Wrestlemania 37? 25

WWE did have to change a lot of plans around WrestleMania 36. The location was changed as well as live fans were taken out of the equation. The big return of Nexus was unfortunately canceled, as well. While speaking with The Dropkick Podcast, Darren Young was the first name to reveal that WWE had plans to bring the group back on TV.

“If Nexus would have come back, who knows what would have happened? We were scheduled to come back for WrestleMania, but hey man, yeah, this year’s WrestleMania in Tampa.” (Quotes courtesy Ringside News)

It’s unclear which match Nexus would have been involved with. The assumption is that John Cena vs Bray Wyatt in that unique Firefly Funhouse match could be an option. It makes sense that Cena could visit by some of the faces from the faction, he buried. Even Wyatt’s previous Husky Harris version could have also joined his former stablemates.

Keith Lee vs. WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has also been made official for the first WWE RAW of 2021. Last week’s show witnessed Lee defeat Sheamus in the opening match, which was a number-one contender’s match to determine the next challenger for McIntyre. WWE then confirmed that McIntyre will indeed have a big target on his back when Lee competes against him. The challenger is more than focused to dethrone the reigning champion and this one is going to be a slobber knocker.

RETRIBUTION faction is beating the hell out of Ricochet, every week with the same pledge so that the latter joins them. Despite the punishment, the former United States Champion has vowed not to be a part of the dominant group and thus WWE Raw could become a nightmare for her.

Last week, WWE Raw went off the air at a point when Orton was about to drop a burning match stick onto Bliss was fully covered with gasoline. Orton had to stop as The Fiend’s sounds started to play in the system. We don’t know whether Orton dared to burn down Bliss or ‘HE’ saved her. More on the situation will play out when Legends Night airs from the ThunderDome.

WWE Raw Preview (26/10/20): Hell In A Cell 2020 Fallouts

One of the most brutal nights in the WWE calendar in the form of Hell in a Cell 2020 PPV is now over as we await fallouts from it on this week’s WWE Raw. The prime title from the red brand has changed hands on last night’s show after a long course of almost seven months. Now the era of The Viper will begin as we kick off the journey for Survivor Series 2020. Also, the hypes around The Undertaker’s 30th anniversary in the WWE will also begin when the show airs from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

Randy Orton defeated Drew McIntyre to make history as he now stands as a 14-time World Champion. This aligns him with The Game Triple H who also clinched that number of world title reigns. One of the all-time greatest superstars accomplished the feat inside WWE’s most devastating structure known as Hell in a Cell.

McIntyre attempted a second Claymore Kick but Orton dodged it and nailed an RKO for the victory. What the new champion will have to say to the WWE Universe while beginning his reign. We’ll find out on the upcoming edition of WWE Raw.

The feud between Elias and Jeff Hardy is definitely not over on WWE Raw after what transpired, last night. The record book will show a disqualification defeat by Hardy’s name, but he did claim the redemption, required. Hardy hit a Whisper in the Wind and Twist of Fate to create an opening for a Swanton Bomb.

But Elias moved out of the way and tried to bring the guitar forcing Hardy to take it and smash it on his back. It is likely that the duo will likely collide in another future match, perhaps in a gimmick-based one.

Otis had a devastating night at Hell in a Cell. Not only the dozin’ one lost his Money in the Bank Contract to The Miz but also lost something worse – his best friend, Tucker who betrayed Otis, costing him the match and the opportunistic briefcase.

On the flip side, The Miz is relishing the win which guarantees him a future world title opportunity. After waiting for over a decade, The A-lister expects to be back on the main event and we expect a warning from him on WWE Raw.

Apart from the fallouts from Hell in a Cell, initial buildups and format of this year’s Survivor Series will be let known. We do know the show will revolve around, The Undertaker’s 30th anniversary. The question remains whether The Deadman will be back for one more match on this occasion.

Also, the feud between the Hurt Business and RETRIBUTION could set up a traditional tag team match at the show scheduled for next month. More details around it are expected when WWE Raw airs with the post-HIAC episode.

Plans For The Fiend Bray Wyatt At WWE Hell In A Cell 2020

On the Season Premiere episode of Monday Night RAW, The Fiend Bray Wyatt and Alexa Bliss have been involved in an angle with RETRIBUTION that could set up a match at Hell In A Cell 2020.

As seen on Raw, The Fiend single-handedly took out RETRIBUTION members that were a sight to behold. T-BAR has now taken to Twitter to warn The Fiend that there will be “HELL” to pay for what he did.

“There will be HELL to pay, @WWEBrayWyatt.

WE will have our #RETRIBUTION.”

Wyatt replied to it indicating the storyline might continue at Hell In A Cell,

“Revenge is a nasty business.”

Neither RETRIBUTION nor The Fiend Bray Wyatt has been booked for Hell In A Cell 2020 meaning that they could feature in another confrontation. They could simply be involved in a face-off like Raw or there’s speculation going on about T-Bar potentially facing the demonic character at the PPV. The card for the show is yet to be filled and the inclusion of the former Universal Champion could make it even a stacked one.

Mick Foley Meets Vince McMahon; Expected For A WWE Return

So far, only 4 matches have been announced for Hell In A Cell from Raw and SmackDown. At least, a few more matches should get confirmed and The Fiend Bray Wyatt facing off against T-BAR or another member of RETRIBUTION could be among those.

The current match-card for WWE Hell In A Cell 2020 stands as follows,

– “I Quit” Hell in a Cell match for the Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Jey Uso

– Hell in a Cell match for the WWE Championship: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton

– Hell in a Cell match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship: Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks

– Jeff Hardy vs. Elias

Recapping on what went down on Raw, Alexa Bliss started off the show alone in the ring that was surrounded by a creepy red light. She told everyone to “let him in” to call The Fiend Bray Wyatt into the show. The ThunderDome witnessed his entry after which RETRIBUTION came out to new music to interrupt him.

Plans For The Fiend Bray Wyatt At WWE Hell In A Cell 2020 83

Slapjack, T-Bar, Mace, Reckoning, and Mustafa Ali got into the ring and surrounded Wyatt and Bliss who stood still. Ali closed his fist to signal something as the lights went out. When they came back on, Bliss and Wyatt were nowhere to be found.

The Hurt Business and RETRIBUTION then competed in a tag team match, next. Then Fiend Bray Wyatt appeared on the screen again to taunt RETRIBUTION before the commercial break. The Hurt Business came out as the winner of the match after which the lights went out again and Then Fiend showed up, again to take out the faction members, one by one.

Mustafa Ali tried to get away from the demonic character, but Wyatt chased him in the ring. T-Bar saved Ali, but he got planted with Sister Abigail. Since these two threw some shade at each other on Twitter even before Raw confrontation, it’s very likely that these two are perhaps set for a singles battle. Alexa Bliss will also get involved in the equation to provide The Fiend Bray Wyatt, the upper-hand.

RETRIBUTION To Be Part Of WWE Survivor Series 2020 Main Event?

RETRIBUTION stable members were officially signed by WWE, as seen on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw. Ali was also declared to be the leader for them. Originated from the WWE NXT roster, these goons like characters now have new and different names and looks. Also, a big angle took place for the first time where the roster actually backfired against these names and got the upper-hand.

WWE seems to have some plans to blow-off this angle in a big way possible. It seems the creative team has already started planning about Survivor Series 2020 and RETRIBUTION will be a big part of the PPV plans. Going by the history of the event, traditional tag team matches remain a big attraction for the fans and WWE would use this factor.

The word doing round around the internet is that RETRIBUTION will compete against a WWE team and this match is being targeted as one of the main events of Survivor Series 2020, according to the reports of PW Insider. After what transpired on Raw, it appears that the Hurt Business will be a part of that match. Drew McIntyre could also be a part of that match as anything could happen on the road to Survivor Series.

RETRIBUTION competing against a team formed by WWE Superstars will be something that we have seen in the past where non-WWE forces competed against the company. It will be a huge draw from the company’s perspective as the faction has garnered quite the attention of the audience.

Dominik Dijakovic, Mia Yim, Mercedes Martinez, Shane Thorne, and Dio Maddin appeared to be the five core members of RETRIBUTION as revealed on Raw. Dijakovic, Maddin, and Thorne are now being referred to as T-Bar, Mace, and Slapjack, respectively while the female counterparts don’t have separate names, as of now.

RETRIBUTION opened WWE Raw revealing that the five core members have received official contracts from WWE officials. Apart from these names, there are some other masked men who are part of this faction but their identities and status aren’t available, for now. Probably, all of them will be looking forward to signing deals and bring more chaos to the scene.

The 2020 edition of Draft will be continuing through this week’s WWE Raw, bringing more changes to the roster. Despite the limited options, SmackDown presented a decent Night I of the Draft that also had some returns on the card. Such shockers would also be reserved, tonight as we expect to close the shake-up process on a big note.

While the Draft picks will be the most interesting to follow throughout the night, there’ll be more highlights. A dual-brand battle royal will go down to declare new Women’s Championship challenger. Seth Rollins will give his farewell speech for the Red side while a No Disqualification matchup is also in-store when WWE Raw airs from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

Black ambushed Owens and put him down with the finishing maneuver, Black Mass, last week. Moving on, Owens suffered a devastating loss at the hands of The Fiend and now his status is also under doubt as they often say the demonic character changes people. Tonight’s match gives Owens an opportunity to prove people wrong and make a statement about why the red or blue brand should have him as a top pick.

Well, this one would be a must-see when we will hear directly from the source as Ali speaks, tonight. What’ll he has to offer for the WWE Universe? We’ll have to tune in as the Draft Night II continues.

The Miz Planned To Lead WWE’s New Faction Retribution

WWE is constantly showing the invasion of a new stable of masked Superstars who are growing by numbers and at one point, The Miz could be one of them. Retribution is attacking superstars or backstage employees creating complete chaos to the scene, whenever they like. Their identities have been a top-secret for a long time and a top superstar was supposed to be behind their actions until Mustafa Ali stepped in as the leader.

WWE CEO Vince McMahon kicked off the first SmackDown at ThunderDome, only to be interrupted by “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt moments later. Soon after the confrontation, the former Universal Champion Braun Strowman showed up to confront The Fiend who didn’t stay for long. He disappeared when RETRIBUTION surrounded the ring.

The group then attacked Strowman which was thought to be a pre-planned action carried out by The Fiend. But there’s more to the story. They weren’t successful in it as the SmackDown locker room rushed to the ring to make the save for the Monster Among Men. But one superstar was absent on two back-to-back occasions during the Retribution invasion which hinted something.

One interesting thing noted on TV was that the former WWE Champion The Miz showed up when RETRIBUTION had already started retreating. Many people thereafter are speculating that The Hollywood A-Lister might be the one who is grouping this faction that comprises a set of new talents of the company who seems to be a rebellious group and have a problem with the WWE.

The Miz Planned To Lead WWE’s New Faction Retribution 126

Then on SmackDown, The Miz was also one of the few wrestlers who weren’t attacked by RETRIBUTION. He later mentioned how she was “busy” on a phone call with his wife, Maryse, at the time of the attack. WWE thus dropped hints of the angle that could soon be revealed on TV to add a whole new dimension to the Retribution thing.

While this storyline seemed to be a good idea, sometimes these breadcrumbs are forgotten about. You never know what can happen as Vince McMahon often makes changes in the ongoing storyline angles. For now, it definitely seems that WWE does want us to show The Miz’s involvement with Retribution. This could be a huge boost to the downgoing career of The Miz and Mrs star, after all.
