    Raw Five-Point Preview: Dec. 7, 2015

    With The League of Nations by his side, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus seems unstoppable going into his Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match title defense at WWE TLC, but Roman Reigns has a squad of his own in The Usos and Dean Ambrose. What will transpire between these two warring factions on Raw?

    After ensnaring the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from Roman Reigns at Survivor Series, Sheamus has surrounded himself with Rusev, King Barrett and U.S. Champion Alberto Del Rio — The League of Nations — and used his cruel coalition to make The Big Dog suffer before their Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match at WWE TLC.

    On SmackDown, despite Reigns’ victory over The League of Nations in a 4-on-1 Handicap Match, Sheamus Brogue Kicked his unsuspecting challenger, leaving The Big Dog vulnerable to a post-match beatdown. However, The Usos and Dean Ambrose were quick to hit the scene and ward off The Celtic Warrior and his vicious allies.

    Will Reigns and his crew continue to bring the fight to Sheamus and his “lads” on Raw? Moreover, how will these two groups change the landscape of WWE TLC?

    All in the family
    Even though Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley have recruited Tommy Dreamer to aid them in their campaign against The Wyatt Family, the trio of ECW Originals suffered the wrath of The Eater of Worlds’ flock on SmackDown — a kendo stick assault that culminated with Dreamer being driventhrough a table.

    The Dudley Boyz and The Innovator of Violence never back down from a challenge, and will no doubt be looking for some payback against The Wyatt Family on Raw. Will we see another “Extreme” collision between these unorthodox families, six nights before WWE TLC?

    Face value
    After suffering a frustrating defeat to Tyler Breeze on SmackDown, Neville was approached by The Miz. Shockingly, The A-Lister complimented the high-flyer’s “unique” look and in-ring potential, and expressed interest in giving the former NXT Champion some lessons in charisma. Will The Man That Gravity Forgot take the bearer of “The Moneymaker”up on his offer to serve as his mentor, or will Neville keep his distance, given The Miz’s notorious self-serving tendencies?

    High anxiety for The New Day?
    As WWE.com reported Thursday, The New Day will not only defend their WWE Tag Team Championship against both The Usos and The Lucha Dragons at WWE TLC, but they will do so in a high-risk Ladder Match.

    How will this added stipulation affect Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods’ strategy as they put their titles on the line against two high-flying tag teams? Will the trio need to lean on Kingston’s extensive Money in the Bank Ladder Match experience, or are they already devising a way to bend the rules in their favor? Whatever happens next, you don’t want to miss what these three teams have in store for Raw, six nights removed from their steel-bending clash.

    All’s Flair in love and war
    We’re seeing a different side of Charlotte lately, and it’s not one that agrees with the Divas Champion’s longtime friend, Becky Lynch. On Raw, the daughter of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair took a page out of her dad’s playbook when she feigned an injury to take Becky off her game and steal a victory over The Lass Kicker in what was supposed to be a friendly bout. Then, on SmackDown, a hot-headed Charlotte got Becky disqualified in her match with Brie Bella. Although Charlotte’s interference was in retaliation after Brie accidentally knocked the Divas Champion down at ringside, the second-generation Diva seemingly had no regard for how her actions would affect her friend. Are we now seeing the “real” Charlotte?

  2. Just a heads-up, @Tsar
  3. The mods sticky these threads a day or so before the show. This isn't some A-PPV that people will be discussing days beforehand. Calm down.
    • Informative Informative x 1
  4. Ah, good to know. I thought this was a go-home show for Mania... :letroll:
    • BURN! BURN! x 1
    • Zing! Zing! x 1
  5. The fact this upcoming show hasn't gotten any talk yet speaks for itself, "Meh..."
    • Zing! Zing! x 1
  6. Well, there ain't much to talk about when the current storylines aren't compelling...
  7. True, they better shape up soon
  8. They won't. Vince doesn't care about our opinions, he will continue to put out whatever he damn well pleases.
  9. Miz is going to have Neville dress up like a christmas elf at some point lol
  10. It better be Rhyno as the fourth man between The Dudleys and Tommy Dreamer
  11. GORE, that'll be the only good thing tonight, set up Tag Team Elimination Tables Match
    • Agree Agree x 1
  12. Yeah, it'll be him most likely.
  13. According to Meltzer, big creative changes MAY be coming to WWE starting tonight on Raw. What the hell that could possibly mean is unknown, but at least I'm looking forward to Raw tonight. Of course, this should be taken with a grain of salt considering the source and the fact that WWE hasn't seemed to make any big changes to their creative team recently, but there have been a number of reports lately that would seem to back this up.

    1. WWE sent out a fan survey asking them what they think could be done to improve the product.

    2. USA is apparently unhappy with WWE's numbers and have been pushing for a different creative direction.

    3. Vince has been very unhappy with his ratings.

    If this is true, I'm mostly interested in what a different "creative direction" means at this point. WWE has been stuck in the same creative format for nearly a decade now, and I doubt they have any plans to change the TV rating, which the rating isn't the problem to begin with. Hopefully tonight sheds some light on this so called "change".
  14. This. Changes. Everything. :otunga:
  15. While I'd love to automatically say "pffft" at WWE listening to the fans, considering the shit what wrestling fans say I'd be even more worried if they actually listened to us. lol
  16. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO PLEASE NO! I don't want to be Sandman. I don't like the RVD option either but even he would be a better choice than this option they're likely gonna go for.

  17. enter sandman
  18. Happy B-day, Dean Ambrose!
  19. New Day... ROCKS!
