    Raw preview, March 14, 2016: The Game sets his sights on Reigns
    Triple H escaped with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, but as he walks into Pittsburgh with the ultimate prize, what message will he have for his WrestleMania opponent Roman Reigns? And how will Dean Ambrose respond to coming up short at WWE Roadblock?

    1. Road to WrestleMania now clear for Triple H
    WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H managed to Pedigree Dean Ambrose and escape Toronto with the title, but now the path is clear: He's set for a championship showdown against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. Despite Ambrose nearly pinning him — Ambrose's feet were under the ropes, causing the official to call off a would-be three-count — The Game can now fully turn his attention to The Big Dog eying his title.

    Roman Reigns has been recuperating since Triple H shattered his nose on the Feb. 22 edition of Raw, and with Triple H defeating Reigns' best friend, what message will the champion have for his WrestleMania opponent?

    And how will the defeated Lunatic Fringe respond after the heartbreaking defeat? Even though he lost, his performance surely has to boost his confidence leading into his No Holds Barred Street Fight against Brock Lesnar at The Show of Shows. But given Ambrose's unstable disposition, that isn't much consolation. What chaos will he cause after coming up short in another big match?

    Find out Monday at 8/7 C when Raw airs live on USA Network.

    2. Sins of the father
    If you don’t think Shane McMahon is capable of holding his own against The Undertaker inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania, you might want to head to WWE Network and brush up on your Shane-O-Mac history. After all, The Show of Shows is just three weeks away — what are you waiting for?

    Yet, Mr. McMahon might be Shane’s greater enemy in the lead-up to The Show of Shows as he continues waging psychological warfare on his progeny. Given that control of Raw and, in essence, the company will be at stake on The Grandest Stage of Them All, WWE’s Chairman will stop at nothing to emotionally attack Shane, last week callously and symbolically destroying a framed photo of himself and his son. Will WWE’s prodigal son be able to withstand his father’s cruel machinations as the most important battle of his life approaches?

    3. Will #KOMania become #WrestleZaynia?
    Kevin Owens has lamented that he doesn’t yet have an Intercontinental Championship challenger for WrestleMania — or #KOMania, as he calls it — but he might have gotten one in a big way when Sami Zayn returned on Raw and attackedhis deceitful former friend.

    The one-time allies were set to square off in tag team action on SmackDown, with Zayn and Neville partnering against Owens and The Miz. However, when The Prizefigther was tagged in to face Zayn, he walked out on the match. Is the Intercontinental Champion afraid that his title reign is just one Helluva Kick away from coming to a close?

    4. There’s something about Lana
    Lana has yet to reveal why she attacked Brie Bella twice in the past week or why she has taken such a malicious interest in the “Total Divas” star, but The Ravishing Russian has certainly picked an opportune time to make Brie’s life miserable.

    As WrestleMania approaches, every competitor in WWE is looking to make an impact, and Lana has certainly been doing that in a major way — despite never having competed inside a WWE ring. How will Brie retaliate against her blonde aggressor, and how might this rivalry affect The Show of Shows? Expect more from these two Divas Monday night.

    5. Burn, baby, burn
    As if there was any confusion that Y2AJ was no more after Chris Jericho attacked AJ Styles with three Codebreakers and stuffed the team’s newly released T-shirt down The Phenomenal One’s throat on Raw, Jericho officially burned that bridge — and a separate Y2AJ shirt — on SmackDown. Lambasting all those who cheered for Styles in lieu of celebrating Jericho’s many accomplishments during his 17-year WWE career, Y2J also seemed to sever his ties to the WWE Universe Thursday night.

    With his actions last week, Jericho affirmed that he has a lot of unfinished business with The Phenomenal One. Does this mean that Styles vs. Jericho IV awaits? If so, when will it happen?

    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.

    6. The New Day to defend WWE Tag Team Titles against The League of Nations
    King Barrett had Big E down for the count at WWE Roadblock. He and Sheamus were a mere three-count away from capturing the WWE Tag Team Championship from The New Day. But Xavier Woods distracted the referee, allowing Big E and Kofi Kingston to battle back into the match and retain the titles. Will they be so lucky against the other two members of The League on Monday's Raw?

    After the Roadblock match, Rusev and Alberto Del Rio tweeted that the numbers advantage stacked the odds in The New Day's favor, which the champions responded to by offering to defend the tag gold anytime, anywhere. The teams continued to trade barbs on social media, with Rusev & Del Rio making a formal challenge, which The New Day accepted. WWE's Twitter account announced on Sunday that the title match will take place on Raw.

    The New Day has been rolling of late — especially after eating their Booty-O's — but can the powerful Rusev and the cunning Del Rio unseat the unicorn horn–wearing champions? Find out on Raw, live on USA Network at 8/7 C.
