    Raw preview, Aug. 22, 2016: The Demon King's reign begins
    Unleashing the full power of The Demon King on Seth Rollins last night at SummerSlam, Finn Bálor made history by becoming the first WWE Universal Champion. What awaits when the mysterious Superstar brings his newly won prize to Raw?

    Raw becomes The Demon Kingdom
    In an incredible, historic matchup, Finn Bálor put Seth Rollins away with a Coup de Grâce to become the first WWE Universal Champion last night at SummerSlam. Following The Demon King’s conquest, Bálor brings Team Red’s flagship title to Raw. What’s next for the enigmatic Irishman? We’ll hear from him — and Rollins — on Monday night’s hottest show.

    The Dudley Boyz to ‘say goodbye’ tonight
    One night after yet another miscommunication cost The Dudley Boyz a victory during the SummerSlam Kickoff, the most decorated tag team in sports-entertainment history will evidently be saying their farewells to the WWE Universe tonight, live on Raw.

    The Dudley Boyz made the announcement earlier today on Twitter:

    For more than 20 years, Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley have been among the most dominant tag teams in the world. They returned to WWE one year ago to earn their 10th tag team championship in WWE—a quest that was ultimately and unfortunately unsuccessful. Nevertheless, there will never be another tandem in sports-entertainment like The Dudley Boyz.

    Find out how Bubba Ray & D-Von Dudley will cap off their legendary career tonight on Raw, beginning at 8/7 C on USA Network.

    Charlotte demotes The Boss
    Proving that she doesn’t need help to come out on top in big match situations, Charlotte ruthlessly brutalized Sasha Banks last night at SummerSlam to become a two-time WWE Women’s Champion.

    Sustaining a lower back injury during last night’s match, The Boss refused to give up despite excruciating pain, and Sasha will undoubtedly display that same tenacity in her quest to reclaim the crown jewel of Raw’s Women’s division. How will she retaliate against Charlotte tonight?

    The Beast at his most barbaric
    In an intensely brutal SummerSlam clash nearly 15 years in the making, Raw’s Brock Lesnar conquered SmackDown Live’s Randy Orton via technical knockout, ending the match in carnage and bringing an entirely new meaning to the term “Team Red.” Then, after the bout, Lesnar got his hands on Shane McMahon, hitting SmackDown Live’s Commissioner with an F-5 that left the Brooklyn crowd in stunned silence.

    How will The Beast Incarnate’s horrific actions impact tonight’s Raw, and how will Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley respond?

    Have The New Day found the cure for 'ringpostitis'?
    SummerSlam’s special guest (and honorary member of The New Day) Jon Stewart nearly fell victim to “ringpostitis,” the startling epidemic affecting Raw’s tag teams. However, the returning Big E prevented the acclaimed comedian from being diagnosed by so-called “doctors” Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson.

    Last night’s WWE Tag Team Championship Match pitting Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods against the faux physicians ended in a disqualification victory for Gallows & Anderson when Big E charged the ring, so it’s clear the rivalry between these Team Red tandems is far from over. But now that The New Day is fully functional and more virile than ever, are the WWE Tag Team Champions poised to give the wannabe doctors a triple-dose of payback?

    Will The Big Dog's rampage continue?
    Not willing to wait for last night’s United States Championship Match to begin, defending champion Rusev sparked a brawl with Roman Reigns outside the ring, preventing the bout from ever officially getting underway.

    The melee, which required a veritable army of WWE officials to separate the rivals, ended when The Super Athlete was deemed unable to compete by medical personnel. That didn’t stop Reigns from brutalizing Rusev further with a thunderous Spear onto the floor. Will The Big Dog bring that same aggression to Raw tonight in Brooklyn? Plus, will we learn more about Rusev’s condition following Reigns’ assault?

    Tune in to Raw at 8/7 C on USA Network, and don’t miss Raw Pre-Show at 7:30 ET on all of WWE’s digital platforms.​
  2. Ok... so my thoughts

    1.Finn got injured in the match which means this will be a very short title reign, he might even vacate it tonight and say he'll be out for a bit, sorry to say this but whoever will be the primary feud next it will be Roman and Rollins again. There's no other alternative WWE can look to. Let's also Pray this injury does not hurt WWE's vision of Balor like it did with Sasha.

    2.This is a rehash of a TNA idea I think, where one dudley turned on the other, so get ready.

    3.Good luck tonight WWE.... after seeing last night, your gonna need it.
  3. They can't just jump Roman out of the Rusev feud and put him straight in the ME scene again. That'll bite 'em in the ass.

    This is my take: Lesnar destroys Rollins or whomever and becomes the new champ.
  4. ok Bork Lazser is a good call
  5. Poor Demon Boi
  6. 6 months? 6 friggin' months?? Damn it!!

  15. Braun baby going for the belt imo
