Monday Night Raw Preview 10/27/14

Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw is coming to you LIVE from San Antonio, Texas! A mere twenty-four hours removed from Hell in a Cell, the WWE universe is primed for a huge shake-up. Some pre-show notes (Hell in a Cell spoilers below):

  • Bray Wyatt Returns: The big news from last night’s Hell in a Cell was the return of Bray Wyatt, who cost Dean Ambrose his match with Seth Rollins. Though Ambrose vs. Rollins is far from over, it looks like both men will be focusing their attention elsewhere during the immediate future. Another wrinkle to Wyatt’s return is the “releasing” of Luke Harper and Erik Rowan onto the WWE universe. Will they be returning as well, albeit in a more independent fashion? Will Wyatt introduce any new acolytes? Why did Wyatt target Ambrose in the first place? Lots of questions, some of which will surely be answered tonight.
  • New No. 1 Contender: After vanquishing Randy Orton, John Cena is the new number one contender for Brock Lesnar’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship. With the series tied 1-1, it is fitting to have a third match with the belt on the line. However, the big question is when? With rumors swirling that Lesnar won’t defend his title until January at Royal Rumble at the earliest, that’s a long time for Cena to essentially feud with Paul Heyman. Expect a timetable to get laid out tonight for the future of the WWEWHC.
  • Champs Move On: Champions the Dust Brothers, Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus, and AJ Lee all won their title matches in very decisive fashion last night, possibly leading to new contenders to the undercard belts. Gotta tune in tonight to see who is gunning for the gold, with Survivor Series less than four weeks away.
  • Who Will Survive In America: Add Big Show to the list of patriots Rusev has dispatched in the name of Mother Russia. It was unclear last night whether Big Show tapped or passed out in the Accolade, so if he merely passed out, he might get another crack at Rusev. If he tapped, expect a new challenger for the Bulgarian Brute. Also, will WWE pull the trigger on the Mark Henry heel turn? It’s been brewing since his loss to Rusev at Night of Champions, and with Big Show done with Rusev, the time is right for the behemoths to turn on each other.

That’s it! Enjoy the show and check back here tomorrow for the “Day After” report!

Stardust Making His JBL (& Not Cole) Show Debut On Next Week’s Halloween Special

Ever since the departure of Cody Rhodes from the JBL and Cole Show, things have spiraled a bit out of control. JBL almost lost control of the show to Zack Ryder and Dolph Ziggler after attempting to blow up Adam Rose’s Bunny; Renee Young, Summer Rae, Hornswoggle, & Ryback quit the show; and Bad News Barrett has been missing due to injury.

In this week’s episode, Ryder & Ziggler’s plan to resurrect the Z! True Long Island Story, preventing the JBL Show from hitting 100 episode goes bad after a shocking betrayal. But that’s not the real news. No, the Dashing One isn’t returning either but a mysterious teaser for next week’s Halloween special (@ the 3:00 mark) points towards the Cosmic One- Stardust, making his JBL Show debut next week!

Check out the video above and be sure to check back next week for the Halloween spectacular. While you’re at it, hop on over to WWE Shop and pick up the Stardust mask and gloves we were so hyped about last week, they’ve finally hit the store!

KHEEE!

Hump day, power through it with some headlines.

New Hell In A Cell Match (Smackdown Spoiler) – Lords of Pain

New WWE Domestic Violence Policy – Wrestling INC

On the heels of the troubles being experienced by the NFL, WWE has instituted a new domestic violence policy. I’m honestly surprised it’s taken this long for the issue to come up in the world of wrestling.

John Cena: Reality Show Producer – With Spandex

Following in the Rock’s footsteps, John Cena is partnering with the producers of Pawn Stars to develop reality TV shows.

The Merch Table: Not Soon Enough

 

Announced via Stardust’s Twitter, coming soon to WWE Shop are the Stardust plastic mask and his signature gloves.

Soon. But not soon enough for Halloween I’m afraid as the items haven’t hit the WWE Shop website yet, less than two weeks out from Halloween. So in the meantime if you’re planning on emulating the Cosmic One this Halloween you’ll have to go with a homemade costume and makeup. You can however still purchase the Goldust mask if you need a tag team partner.
