    Raw Five Point Preview!

    (YES! YES! YES!)​
    1. Corporate Culture Shock
    When Mr. McMahon told his daughter “good luck with that” after her proposal to give Daniel Bryan a corporate makeover, The Chairman wasn’t just a-whistlin’ you-know-what. The McMahons have had “corporate champions” before and none of them have panned out particularly well for WWE’s first family, but maybe Bryan will be the exception that proves the rule? Stranger things have certainly happened, but if they make a move to trim Bryan’s beard, things will likely go south very, very fast for Mr. McMahon and his brood.​
    2. Devious Divas
    Looks like the “Total Divas” crew doesn’t have the monopoly on backstabbing and drama within WWE’s women’s division after all. Up until Friday, Layla had been a close confidante of Kaitlyn’s throughout her emotionally taxing saga with AJ Lee, but the British beauty betrayed the “Hybrid Diva” on SmackDown and helped AJ retain her Divas Championship in a match against her old friend. With Layla and AJ now skipping along in tandem, are the odds too tall for Kaitlyn to climb the mountain again? Or will she simply be doubling up on spears for the foreseeable future?​
    3. One. More. Match.
    He finally did it: After two solid years of yearning for one more opportunity at the World Heavyweight Championship, Christian will get his chance at the “Big Gold Title” when he faces his old nemesis, Alberto Del Rio, for the celebrated title at SummerSlam. But with Captain Charisma’s ascent to the mountaintop nearing its peak, The Essence of Excellence seems to have his old foil’s number. How will Christian keep his momentum going as the summer classic approaches?​
    4. Hell Hath No Fury
    So Kane is back from injury, but the masked man’s Big Red homecoming took a turn for the worse real fast when he was pinned by Daniel Bryan moments before Bray Wyatt and his disciples obliterated him for a second time. Given that The Wyatts’ attack wasn’t enough to hospitalize The Devil’s Favorite Demon this time around, though, it’s safe to say another face-to-face confrontation between the petrifying preacher man and the former World Heavyweight Champion isn’t out of the question.​
    5. Dont Be A Bully
    Only a few weeks after having his toughness questioned, Ryback seems to have swung in the opposite direction. Now he’s bullying anyone and everyone he can get his hands on, from the cameraman filming his entrance to some poor stagehand who got an earful of potato salad just for breathing the same air as the “Human Wrecking Ball.” And even though John Cena did give Ryback some comeuppance in a Tables Match last Monday, it was hardly the kind of emphatic shellacking that would convince Ryback to back down from messing with innocents. Maybe this week will be the week the beast gets his bell rung … or the week he kicks it into a higher gear than ever. Tune in this Monday at 8/7 CT on USA Network to see what happens!​

  10. No kidding brother, I feel ya on that.
  11. What an absolute fucking buzzkill to see Fagfucker Ryback in the 5 point preview.

    I'm past the point of being able to verbalize by hatred for that fuck. Now he just insights rage noises from me.

  12. As far as I know I'll be here tonight. Just may be late since I have a meeting to cover prior to the show, and I'm doubting it'll be over in an hour.

  13. This Raw is actually going to be live right?
  14. Affirmative.
  15. The preview makes it look like a shit Raw. inb4 Total Divas is better
  16. :upset: Noooo! Thanks for the warning, at least!

    Not sure if I'll be here at all either. Need to get back into the swing of discussion threads, the rapid-fire-don't-think-just-talk-ness of them is just soooo much fun.
    If not, all the interesting things will be recapped on Smackdown anyway so what's the point of watching?

    Also, Creative had a 2 week break after having to write 12 hours of TV in one week last time. Hopefully they're refreshed and they worked hard on this episode.

    Now that I've hyped it up, it's going to suck. You're welcome! :sandow:
  17. WATCH LIVE RAIN! We will all miss you too much plus live is fixed :please:
