    Raw Five-Point Preview: Feb. 8, 2016
    One week after obliterating the brazen Dean Ambrose with an F-5, Brock Lesnar looks to dominate Raw once again, two weeks before battling The Lunatic Fringe and Roman Reigns in a Triple Threat Match at WWE Fastlane. What awaits on what’s sure to be a bombastic edition of Monday night’s hottest show, live in Seattle? WWE.com has some ideas.

    1. Loony and The Beast
    Last week, after showing defiance in the face of Brock Lesnar, Dean Ambrose’s bravery was met with cruel vengeance when The Beast Incarnate ambushed The Lunatic Fringe with a ring-shaking F-5. The brutal attack sent a chilling message to both Ambrose and Roman Reigns — Lesnar’s opponents at WWE Fastlane.

    As outside forces look to turn WWE’s brothers-in-arms against each other in the lead-up to that high-stakes bout, Lesnar will be on the warpath Monday night once again. Will Ambrose get his pound of flesh from The Beast, with The Big Dog by his side, or will the promise of a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match against Triple H at WrestleMania drive the best friends apart physically and psychologically?

    2. What’s Y2J’s endgame?
    Ever since AJ Styles scored a huge victory over Chris Jericho in his Raw debut, Y2J has taken an intense interest in The Phenomenal One’s career, going so far as to challenge Styles to a rematch on this Thursday’s SmackDown. It’s clear that Jericho sees some of himself in the ring veteran, and is seeking to push Styles to his limit whenever possible. But is there a part of Jericho that is attempting to derail the WWE newcomer’s career?

    The Phenomenal One has approached each of his matchups with pitbull-like tenacity since emerging during this year’s Royal Rumble Match, and it’s that aggression that has captured the imagination and the attention of the WWE Universe. Is Jericho jealous of what Styles might be capable of on The Road to WrestleMania? After all, as history has proven, Y2J isn’t exactly fond of sharing the spotlight. Expect Jericho to pay very close attention to whatever awaits Styles on Raw.

    3. B.A.D. blood
    Last week on Raw, Sasha Banks broke away from Team B.A.D. to forge her own destiny, and The Boss’ declaration of her own independence didn’t sit very well with Naomi and Tamina. Sasha and Becky Lynch fought off the attacking Team B.A.D. remnants, becoming what can best be described as an alliance of necessity as a result.

    As we witnessed on SmackDown, Becky and Sasha are by no means exchanging friendship bracelets at this point, but they have formed a united front against Naomi and Tamina as they separately pursue the Divas Championship. Will this uneasy union pay off on Raw?

    4. Will The Wyatt Family cut The Big Guy down to size?
    Ryback went into SmackDown with an appetite, and he gorged himself on lamb chops.

    Showing renewed intensity on Thursday night, The Big Guy defeated Erick Rowan — despite “The Black Sheep” Braun Strowman’s imposing presence at ringside — and made a powerful statement to The Wyatt Family: Ryback isn’t afraid.

    But should he be? Last Monday night, The Wyatt Family dismantled the similarly bold Big Show with a 3-on-1 beatdown. Ryback had best be cautious this week.

    5. Golden opportunity
    Goldust is a lot of things: bizarre, unpredictable and unsettling are a few words that spring to mind. But he’s also persistent, as evidenced by his continued attempts to woo R-Truth into a tag team partnership known as The Golden Truth.

    Last Thursday before SmackDown, The Bizarre One disguised himself as a bellhop and ambushed his would-be partner in a hotel lobby. Goldust left disappointed and empty-handed, save for a pair of R-Truth’s underwear that he might or might not have tried on later that night. Yet, something tells us he’ll make another attempt to win Truth over on Raw. Will Goldust find success this week?

    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.​

  4. DB return....for a Brie Bella storyline :smirk2:
  5. The dude must be on his way to Seattle. I'll mark my tits off if he appears and tells us he's back for good!

  6. Roman Reigns is the top babyface in WWE, and some people are not OK with that.

    Reigns typically receives a mixed reaction, with most of the boos coming from WWE's vocal minority of hardcore fans. Some fans are even sharpening their fangs, either demanding a Reigns heel turn or that WWE Raw changes course for the WrestleMania main event.

    But if Reigns is truly WWE's choice to represent the company for the next 10 years, the professionals within the publicly traded company need to buckle down and move forward with that choice. Per WWE's long-term storytelling, all signs point to Reigns taking on Triple H in the WrestleMania 32 main event, which is a match that will save an otherwise injury-riddled card.
  7. I think I'll throw up in my mouth is he's brought back just for that.

  8. I feel like theres a good chancr since Brie is getting a singles push and turning face now. DB is gonna be in full blown Brie Mode for now on. They might use DB to get the crowd behind Brie, but I imagine this back firing and ending up with a bunch of loud heckling during divas matches (get ready for angry Mick Foley tweets)

  9. Brie is just a filler opponent for Charlotte. Charlotte wins at Fastlane and Brie goes back to being irrelevant.

    If DB's only coming back to be like "Yay! Brie Mode!" and if that shit backfires, I'll burst out laughing.

    Clear DB, WWE. Please and thank you.
  10. Fuck yes! DB coming back has to be for a WM build, though. I hear that because WWE haven't promoted it at all, though, it could mean he's gonna say goodbye and possibly leave.

    I just want for DB to take the IC title from Ambrose (next best thing from fighting for the title, assuming he can then elevate the title long-term) and fight a heel Jericho/Owens or something at WM32. That, or a feud with The Undertaker or The Rock (last one is unlikely, but a man can dream) would be phenominal.
  11. As per usual, I'll be here in the LD for the first hour or so and then I'm out.

    See ya all in the Chat in a bit.
  12. American Dragon is the best American since Kurt Angle
