    1. Gunning for The Game
    Roman Reigns conquered The Conqueror and even had to pin his best friend last night, but his greatest challenge lies just six weeks ahead at WrestleMania, where he’ll go one-on-one with The Game in The Show of Shows’ main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

    The Big Dog has competed in the premiere bout at The Showcase of the Immortals before, but nothing can possibly prepare him for what The Cerebral Assassin has in store. Might The King of Kings drop some knowledge on his newly crowned challenger tonight in Detroit? If he does, we highly doubt Reigns will respect the throne.


    2. WWE’s greatest honor
    No one has deserved the Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award … until now.

    Tonight on Raw, an honor named after the founder of WWE and the father of Mr. McMahon will be presented to a worthy recipient. Who will achieve this award, and what effect will it have on the future of sports-entertainment as we know it? As the WWE Universe speculates on this prestigious award, one also has to wonder what type of impact the Vincent J. McMahon Legacy of Excellence Award will have on WWE as a whole. Amidst the questions, one thing is clear: The Road to WrestleMania changes drastically tonight.


    3. What’s next for The Beast and The Lunatic?
    Dean Ambrose suffered the Spear and pinfall that punched Roman Reigns’ ticket to WrestleMania at WWE Fastlane, but if there was any victory attained by The Lunatic Fringe last night, it was that he took the monstrous Brock Lesnar out of commission with a well-timed steel chair attack during the final moments of their all-important Triple Threat Match.

    The Beast Incarnate isn’t the kind of guy to take getting hit with metal furniture lightly, especially when it keeps him from the main event of The Show of Shows. If not Ambrose, someone’s going to be feeling The Beast’s fury on Raw.

    Meanwhile, even as Ambrose faces potential destruction at the hands of The Conqueror, he must also live with the reality that his best friend denied him his WWE World Heavyweight Championship opportunity at WrestleMania. Will the brothers-in-arms address the conclusion of last night’s main event?

    4. The Styles saga continues
    If you’ve found yourself glued to WWE Network since last night, rewatching and analyzing AJ Styles and Chris Jericho’s intensely competitive WWE Fastlane rubber match, we certainly don’t blame you. Not only did Styles earn Jericho’s respect last night, but the bout silenced Styles’ critics who have claimed that The Phenomenal One doesn’t have what it takes to succeed in WWE. What implications will Styles’ WWE Fastlane win have as WrestleMania draws ever closer? Furthermore, will Jericho reveal what’s going through his mind 24 hours after losing his third clash with the two-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion?

    5. Is The Golden Truth a lie?
    Last night at WWE Fastlane, Goldust’s attempt to help his would-be tag team partner in his bout against Curtis Axel backfired in a big way — a mistake that could very well spell the end of The Golden Truth before it began.

    Truth was visibly upset after The Bizarre One inadvertently helped Axel pick up a big win — a victory The Social Outcasts will never get tired of boasting about. Expect Goldust to try to make things right with Truth tonight, potentially while wearing a ridiculous costume (well, a bit more ridiculous than he normally dresses).

    Nah, HHH to recieve it, promo package showing how amazing HHH is, Reigns to interupt, grin like an idiot, cheap shot him like a heel and then look confused when everyone boos him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,171 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Raw will be held in Chicago, Philly and Brooklyn in the lead-up to Wrestlemania.

    Roman is going to get destroyed by those crowds.

    He's only getting booed because he's up against the legend that is HHH

    But sure when he overcomes the odds in the main event of the biggest Mania of all time, they'll have to cheer for him

    /s


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,372 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Come on wwe sting will be In town for mania and so will taker. Have a short match between the 2 of them. Everyone wants it.

    Will taker get that award thing tonight ?


  • Site Banned Posts: 2,094 ✭✭✭BMMachine


    god its so hard to give a f**k about raw and wrestling anymore. Roman Reigns... christ.
    like when cena was getting boo'd to f**k and pushed regardless, it was like "ok, he can talk, he can relate, hes garbage in the ring though and there are better wrestlers than him" but you could see that he actually had something, could actually connect.

    Roman though - NOPE. NOTHING. BIG GUY FROM THE SHIELD. we haven't cared about him for years, he doesnt give us a reason to care about him, booking doesn't either, his angles don't. Nothing does. nothing at all. a nothing wrestler vs. triple fu*king h at wm32 as the main event. do they even ya know, look at the card. How could anyone there with half a brain think thats what people want?. the ONLY thing I want at WM32 now is a "this is boring" chant repeated for 20 minutes during the main event if not only to drive home to vince, steph and all the other bullsh*t artists back there that no, we don't care, please stop.

    Triple H has not had a match since winning the title and before that hadn't had a match since... oh i dont care, a long time anyway. whats the point of putting the title on him?
    For WM30 they had a chance to put on punk vs. bryan in a landmark main event (punk would have stayed for that) but no, not good enough. INSTEAD alienate punk by giving him a Kane angle so he leaves and get batista and randy and hunter to show us just how mediocre is done. yeah it could have been worse. damn right. it could have been so much worse and thats one thing WWE has known to do right in the past few years - they know bad.

    I barely care about watching now and its closing in on WM. Give me a shout when balor gets up to the main roster, I'll watch a bit then before they feed him to reigns. Until that point Im going to stand around grinning like a fu*king idiot because apparently people like that






    tater tots

    Also seeing as Wrestlemania is usually a smarky crowd, NXT have TakeOver: Dallas the night before Mania, so when Triple H makes his appearance on that show, he'll come across the good guy, and not the power hungry authority figure we usually see on television, whereas when he comes out against Roman for Mania, the crowd I imagine will mostly be for him & against Reigns.. So either way Roman Reigns is in a lose lose situation for Mania.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 9,622 ✭✭✭Ruu


    Replace Homer with Triple H and add in Regins howling after cracking award over Trips head.

    I like the idea of Ambrose Vs. Lesnar at WM instead of Lesnar Vs. any of the Wyatt family members


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,970 ✭✭✭✭paulie21


    Lesnar after beating up Ambrose as he entered the building for Raw tonight. Really like this as a match for mania

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,311 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7


    So Ambrose v Brock, sounds good.

    Owens to face Styles (guess), very happy with that.

    New Day v LON, grand stuff.

    Not sure where but Kallisto and Jericho to get matches set up, maybe even against each other.

    Cena to return and possibly to face Taker.

    Sasha v Becky v Charlotte would be very good.

    All interesting things for the road to Mania.

    Ziggler to be added to the Wyatt v Big Guys feud just as he has nothing else to do. Nothing special but at least lots of people to provide different match ups between now and then.

    Uso's v Dudleys. Outcasts v Golden Truth and some friends could be some harmless fun between now and mania also.

    Main event will be interesting to see Triple H end up as the face but that is about all that can be said for it. Actually they will probably add Rock in as a ref or something to get cheers and keep H as the heel.

    Everyone watch this, it's pretty Attitude Era stuff!

    Brock Lesnar attacks Dean Ambrose in the parking lot.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Parking Lot brawl would be a perfect stipulation for a match between Brock & Dean..


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 14,945 Mod ✭✭✭✭Furious-Red


    Yea Ambrose vs Lesnar in a proper falls count anywhere match would be unreal , plus it might allow for Ambrose to win but allow Lesnar to still look strong


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,171 ✭✭✭✭J. Marston


    Rumours galore tonight. Supposed to be a big show.

    I know I'm going to regret staying up for this.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 18,311 Mod ✭✭✭✭DM_7



    LOOK at how many steps he takes. Someone mentioned it on reddit, now I can't unsee it and spent the last 5 minutes re-watching and giggling my head off.

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,935 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy

  • Registered Users Posts: 39,935 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy
