    RAW Five-Point Review:
    [​IMG]
    Just days after the United States celebrated Independence Day, the fireworks continue as WWE heads to The Great White North for Raw. In his native Canada, Chris Jericho prepares to do battle with the brash and egotistical Miz, but what else can the WWE Universe expect less than two weeks before WWE Battleground? WWE.com has some theories.

    1. More 'Money', more problems:
    [​IMG]

    Just one night after John Cena became a 15-time World Champion at Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins nearly brought Triple H’s “Plan B” into action, attempting to cash in on The Champ after Cena suffered a horrific assault by Kane. The Cenation leader’s salvation came in the oh-so-unlikely form of Dean Ambrose, who ambushed his former “brother” before Rollins’ WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match against Cena could begin.

    Despite that failed attempt, Rollins remains Mr. Money in the Bank, and will continue to stalk Cena in pursuit of WWE’s grandest prize. However, just as Rollins forces The Champ to keep his head on a swivel, so, too, does The Lunatic Fringe aim to unsettle his onetime comrade. Whenever Rollins attempts to cash in his Money in the Bank contract, Ambrose has vowed to be there to prevent it.

    Will The Authority find a way to pull this thorn from Rollins’ side? Or will Ambrose continue to stand between Mr. Money in the Bank and the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?

    2. The Y2J problem:

    Oh, hey Miz. We totally missed you. Fresh from the set of WWE Studios’ “The Marine 4: Moving Target,” the egotistical Awesome One returned to WWE last Monday with the bombast one might expect from, well, Chris Jericho, who also happened to roll through Raw to give us all a glimpse of that endlessly cool light-up jacket of his. Jericho made short work of the self-professed “A-Lister,” much to the delight of the WWE Universe, but Y2J’s smile soon faded when he faced a three-on-one attack by The Wyatt Family.

    The Wyatts continued to target Jericho on SmackDown, warning The Ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla to “save” himself. On Raw, Jericho will compete in a WWE ring for the first time in nearly a year against a vengeful Miz. Will The Eater of Worlds and his sinister disciples make their presence known during this anticipated encounter?

    3. What's Paige's endgame?:
    [​IMG]

    Déjà vu, anyone? Just as a debuting Paige captured AJ Lee’s Divas Title the night after WrestleMania, a returning AJ reclaimed her prize in a similarly unexpected championship collision with The Diva of Tomorrow last week on Raw.

    Paige has taken the loss in stride, at least on the surface. On SmackDown, the British beauty sat at ringside during AJ’s non-title clash against Eva Marie, even offering a congratulatory handshake to the two-time Divas Champion after the match. Is this a show of good sportsmanship, or is Paige trying to gain a psychological edge over the returning titleholder — a Diva who knows a thing or two aboutmind games herself?

    4. Don't tread on Zeb:
    [​IMG]

    We never thought we’d say this, but we’re actually agreeing with Zeb Colter these days. Last Monday night, the outspoken Real American defended the United States of America against Lana’s anti-American rhetoric before Jack Swagger brought the fight to the monstrous Rusev and forced the behemoth out of the ring. The “U.S.A.” chants where deafening and we can only assume that, somewhere, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan was giving a thumbs-up in approval.

    On Friday, The Ravishing Russian and The Bulgarian Brute attempted to spoil Damien Sandow’s Fourth of July festivities on SmackDown, but Swagger and Zeb once again defended Old Glory against the invading Russian oppressors who retreated after a prolonged staredown.

    This Monday on Raw, will the “Cold War” between Swagger and Rusev heat up?

    5. Who will join the Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal?:
    [​IMG]

    More and more elite Superstars continue to be named for the massive Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal at WWE Battleground. The over-the-top rope encounter is already loaded with exciting entrants like Rob Van Dam, Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Big E and Cesaro — all of whom are hungry to lay claim to Bad News Barrett’s vacated prize.

    With less than two weeks before this chaotic bout, who else will join the fray? Stay tuned.

  2. Show's in Montreal, can't really think of anyone for Damien to get cheap heat off of being.. I assume he will have some time off during this show.
     
  3. Shawn Michaels, lol.
     
  4. He's an Arizona boy I thought?
    The only one I know is Chris Benoit and that would be pretty fucked up for WWE to use as a mock character.
     
  5. I thought of Shawn because of the Montréal screw job. It'd be an easy way for some heel heat.
     
  6. Oh yeah haha didn't even put those two together, definitely could be one way to do it.


    I'm decently pumped for tomorrow's show, not sure I'll be able to watch it first go but here where I'm staying at on my vacation they have a channel that plays it back later in the night so I can watch it on an 80 Inch LED with a Bose soundbar/subwoofer since I'll be here by myself.
     
  7. That's easy... have him come out as Bret Hart and either have Natalya and Tyson Kidd come out and beat him or have Bret himself do it.
     
  8. Tyson Kidd aint got shit on Damien ;)
    NXT scrub, I'd rather him take the beating from Natalya or Bret Hart :p

    If he does show up hmm.. I'll say he pops up as William Shatner.
     
  9. I know.. that's why I said Natalya AND Tyson lol
     
  10. May catch the show, not sure.
     
  11. This is gonna be a fun show. We get more PPV build, Y2J vs Miz (plus Wyatt feud build up), Paige feuding with AJ, "The Inspirational" Bo Dallas, Sandow might play a new character like he has done in recent weeks, Swagger vs Rusev build and hopefully a surprise or two.
     
  12. Announced for tonight... Main Event will be John Cena vs Seth Rollins... The Miz will face Chris Jericho.. and @Sharpy Sandow there will be a special appearance by Bret Hart... Hmmmm lol

  13. Bret Hart.
     
  14. Bo Fucking Dallas....13-Bo!
     
  15. Its always interesting when WWE hits Montreal.
    Its summer now and WWE could go a number of different routes to send the Montreal crowd home happy tonight
     
  16. Gonna be hard seeing as the site I use got the chord pulled. I'll send you what I can find.
     
  17. Thanks brother, I might even skip RAW just for the simple fact I cannot stay entertained when i'm forced to watch British commercials for 1/3rd of the show.
     
  18. I don't think I'll be watching it live either.
     
  19. I guess i'll be watching it...As Long as others are.....
