    Payback's in the books, the "New Era" continues, albeit with a twist

    1. Can Shane and Stephanie McMahon coexist as Raw showrunners?

    2. Will Styles and Reigns go to new ‘Extremes’ tonight?

    3. How will Natalya respond to the 'Chicago Screwjob'?

    4. Who will be next to challenge The Miz?

    5. What’s next for the tag team division?

    1. They'll try to one up each other like last night
    2. I can see it as mostly just talking about AJ saying how Gallows and Anderson weren't there on his orders
    3. I would like to see her lose it and put Charles Robinson in a sharpshooter, but doubt it will happen
    4. Cesaro/Zayn/Owens in a 4 way
    5. Vaudevillains will be no. 1 contenders for now.

    I can see Vaudvillians coming out and naming themselves as the No:1 Contenders after last night or something.

    I can see the stephanie/Shane thing breaking down leading to a summerslam match between Shane and someone fighting for Steph for full Control of raw (triple h my guess)

    Triple h is nowhere to be seen in all this

    Drinking game.. A shot for every time "New Era" is said.


    Drink responsibly.

    Hopefully the match for control of Raw happens at Extreme Rules or MITB if they wanna run with it for more then just three weeks and one of them is banished to Smackdown (hopefully Stephanie).

    If both of them are in control for the whole summer then it's gonna be nothing but 30min long opening segment promos and one up man ship. The one up man ship I don't mind because could lead to a brand split in time but last month was great without the constant Stephanie/HHH promos.

    I think they'll keep hhh off TV for another while. then he'll come back and destroy Shane leading to match with Shane or someone fighting for shane at summerslam

    Taker? Maybe he has respect for him after their WM match or if Rollins isnt back by then have him return

    rollins I think as that's the match trips would have had at mania if all the injuries didn't happen I think.

    They've really made a balls of it to date. Is it assumed Shane is sticking around post Summerslam? I'm not sure the McMahons being the focus of the show for another 3 months is best for business.

    You could have Rollins return but have HHH tell him how he made him etc and have Rollins torn between both sides . Then going into Summerslam having it looking like Rollins is gonna lay down or allow HHH to win only for him to turn and go crazy

    Would like to see Rollins somewhat aligned with HHH on his return and then have HHH turn on him by having Balor and BC attack him. Could have Seth come back a week or two in a non wrestling role, HHH gets all friendly with him because they were still buddies before his injury.

    HHH inserts him straight into the Summerslam title match against probably Reigns for the title and Monday night raw. Rollins is more of a face now and is getting away from his heelish gimmick with J&J but HHH still insists on getting involved and making sure he wins the belt back. Rollins wins at Summerslam with some outside interference from HHH or BC who HHH has enlisted to help him gain control of Raw because him and Balor are best buds from NXT and if Balor is your MITB holder can even have him cash it in on Rollins because HHH feels its best for business because Rollins has gotten too soft in his opinion in the months while he's been out injured.

    Gives you a great feud for Rollins on his return against Balor, can incorporate the Shield re-union vs. BC and gives you Rollins vs. HHH which probably would have happened at this years WM.

    I just don't get the Stephanie angle. She brings nothing to the table. The whole premise seems to be 'if I win Raw will continue to be as crap as its been and you'll have to listen to me the whole time'. Like what's the point? What does the Stephanie McMahon character add to the equation? She can get heel heat for sure, but the whole point of heels is to get faces over.

    I haven't watched since Wrestlemania, what is this new era all about?

    Shane came up, called up some NXT guys, "internet darlings" being pushed in big stories. Basically, the "New Era" is "We have a face GM now, isn't that neat?"

    So they make the McMahons the centre piece, with Roman Reigns as champion in order to try and turn ratings around...this is after the fans turn off because McMahons were all over the show and rejected the idea of Reigns as champion over the last 2 years?

    They're idiots.

    Not when it comes to the McMahons. It's all about getting them over. That's the problem.

    That's WWE logic for you. I'm still hoping a brand spilt somewhat happens and could use this for Steph to get half the roster behind her and the other half behind Shane and they each get a show each decided by a match at possibly MITB next month.

    With both of them in charge hopefully it turns into a contest of who can get the fans behind them more so they get full control of Raw in time and not a good cop bad cop situation where Steph does what's best for business and Shane foils her plans because he's all about the fans but it's the McMahons so you know the show is gonna be mainly opening segment promos and arguing throughout the night.

    I'd be much more interested in a Shane/HHH dynamic than a Shane/Stephanie one.

    There's an easy-to-believe story there with Shane feeling aggrieved that the son-in-law has taken his spot that he always believed was his birthright. There's also the possibility of an eventual match down the line. I just feel there would be more of a tension between those two whereas I don't detect any at all between Shane and Stephanie.

    As regards Enzo's injury last night, good to hear the news is encouraging. At one stage he didn't look to be moving at all which was scary.

    Look Lads we all know where this is going, we are heading back in time again, its going to be Vince and Steph v's Linda and Shane, that's just the way its gonna be

    Might end up as Shane/HHH in time. Doubt he's gonna be off telly for much longer, have Shane and Steph somewhat get along and HHH comes back and thinks that just because Steph is co-gm then that means the authority are co-gm which leads to Shane vs. HHH feud but we all know they are gonna re hash another old storyline like a McMahon is every corner or the invasion storyline.
