    RAW Five-Point Review:
    [​IMG]
    For months now, Stardust has been anxious — obsessed, even — with goading “Arrow” star Stephen Amell into a confrontation. All of that social media back-and-forth between The Prince of Dark Matter and the popular actor has led both rivals to a potential clash on Raw. With Neville refusing to succumb to Stardust’s mind games, has the inter-dimensional oddity found a new “hero” in Amell?

    1.Is Stephen Amell prepared to ‘embrace the strange’?:
    [​IMG]
    Following Stardust’s Facebook jab at “Arrow” star Stephen Amell during last week’s Raw — the latest in a series of bizarre social media taunts from the face-painted fiend — the Canadian actor had finally had enough, announcing his intention to come to Monday night’s hottest show and settle his differences with The Prince of Dark Matter.

    Watch Stardust and Amell’s first meeting

    TV’s Green Arrow is certainly capable of defending himself against the physical threat posed by the villainous Stardust (have you seen the guy on a salmon ladder?), but it’s the psychological damage the spaced-out Superstar can inflict that could prove troublesome. Might Amell find some backup in another like-minded hero on WWE’s roster? Perhaps one that gravity can’t seem to remember?

    2.Will John Cena accept Seth Rollins’ challenge?:

    WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins sure talks a big game — especially when he knows his opponent isn’t in the building. Last week on Raw, The Architect boasted about shattering U.S. Champion John Cena’s nose in the previous week’s main event, and tested the tenacity of the Cenation leader by proposing a title-for-title bout at SummerSlam. Should the injured Cena refuse to accept Rollins’ challenge, he will be forced to relinquish his prestigious, star-spangled prize.

    As of this writing, Cena has not accepted Rollins’ terms, but in a WWE.com poll, 85 percent of WWE Universe members believe The Champ should agree to a winner-take-all confrontation with “The Future of WWE” at SummerSlam. Will we hear from Cena this week?

    3.Is Ryback’s Intercontinental Title reign in jeopardy?:
    [​IMG]
    Thursday night on SmackDown, we learned that Ryback will defend his Intercontinental Championship against The Miz and Big Show at SummerSlam. Though originally scheduled to take place at WWE Battleground, this Triple Threat Match was postponed when The Big Guy was diagnosed with a staph infection in his right knee.

    Ryback is one of WWE’s most indomitable Superstars, and his positive outlook and incredible physical strength have helped him overcome countless obstacles in his career. But is Ryback taking a huge risk at SummerSlam by facing both The Miz and The World’s Largest Athlete? How will Big Show and the so-called “A-lister” try to take the Intercontinental Champion off his game before their three-Superstar melee in Brooklyn?

    4.How will Summer Rae retaliate against Lana?:
    [​IMG]
    During SmackDown’s main event, Lana came to ringside to tackle and slap Summer Rae — a satisfying bit of payback against the conniving lookalike after Rusev dragged The Ravishing Russian’s name through the mud earlier in the night. Summer has likely been stewing over this attack, and no doubt has something sinister planned for her nemesis on Raw. Should Lana beware?

    5.Will ‘families’ clash before SummerSlam?:
    [​IMG]
    ‘I welcome this war.’

    Those were Bray Wyatt’s parting words to Roman Reigns at the conclusion of SmackDown, where The Eater of Worlds agreed to a tag team battle pitting former Shield “brothers” Reigns & Dean Ambrose against Wyatt & Luke Harper at SummerSlam.

    The history between The Shield and The Wyatt family runs deep, and the duel that awaits at SummerSlam could be their most savage yet. But will the warring “families” be able to wait until Aug. 23 to do battle?

    Don’t miss Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network, and be sure to tune in to Raw Pre-Show at 7:30 ET, only on the award-winning WWE Network.​
     
  2. Getting hyped just because of Stephen Amell. FUCK YESSSSSSSS!

    Also, Cena-Rollins is getting interesting due to the stipulation and Miz was hilarious last week so I wonder if he can get the IC title chase interesting (I doubt it though).

    But right now I'm not even that hyped for Summerslam, it needs someone like Sting IMO for a big surprise.
     
  3. Fuck this Stardust/Arrow feud and fuck this Lana/Summer BS, too.
     
  4. I really don't see the point of this title for title match, if you want Cena to put over Rollins then cool but why not have him drop the title to Owens? Inb4SomeOutdatedSuperCenaJoke the it kind of puts the belt over i suppose by having the WWE Champ chase it.
     
  5. LOL, Cena ain't puttin' younger talent over. That mf doesn't have it in his contract, or so it seems. :smirk2:

    I imagine WWE will go full WWE mode and have (masked) Kane interfere in the match and have it end in a DQ.
    WWE's been having a hard-on for Rollins vs Kane for a while now, so this is their chance to do it. *puke*
     
  6. Owens
     
  7. What do you mean by saying Owens, that KO will interfere in Rollins/Cena match? I can see that happening.
     
  8. It was a response to this :

    "LOL, Cena ain't puttin' younger talent over. That mf doesn't have it in his contract, or so it seems."

    Wasn't sure if it was a joke or not with the smiley. Owens interfering could be a decent way out of the puzzle for the E actually. Neither man loses their belt and neither man takes a clean loss, Rollins with the US title is pointless isn't it?
     
  9. Nah, that wasn't a joke. Cena did not put Owens over 100%. Owens won one match, not the feud.

    I'm okay with Owens interfering in Rollins/Cena match, as long as it means KO winning the US title from Cena at NOC.
     
  10. Pinning John Cena clean in his debut match, hanging with him in further PPVs doesn't make Owens look better than before to the wider audience?
     
  11. Nope, I don't buy into the competitive loss BS. He did look good in his debut againt Cena, though. And I was fine with Cena winning the second match at MITB, as long as KO was winning the title from him at Battleground. KO should've gone over Cena clean, period. But instead he tapped like a bitch in the rubber match.
     
  12. Don't even know who Stephen Amell is. :quimby:
     
  13. That Arrow dude.
     
  14. Show Spoiler
