Monday Night Raw hails from the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in New York tonight and for the first time in three and a half years the Universal Title no longer belongs to the red brand.
At Crown Jewel, defending champion Seth Rollins lost his title to The Fiend, who was drafted to Friday Night Smackdown in the recent Draft, meaning the title is no longer with Raw.
However, on Friday night WWE Champion Brock Lesnar quit Fox’s new show and stated he was heading to Raw for revenge on Rey Mysterio. With a confrontation almost certain to take place tonight does this mean Mysterio will be the newest title challenger for ‘The Beast’?
The other big talking point ahead of tonight’s show is will the Invasion continue ahead of Survivor Series? WWE announced last week that this years’ show will have Raw vs Smackdown vs NXT for the first time ever, which kick started NXT’s invasion of Smackdown on Friday.
With NXT striking the first blow, it has made the lead up to the Pay Per View extremely interesting, truly showing you can never know when anyone will turn up on any show.
Rusev will also be looking for retribution this week after the Divorce Court segment last week saw Lana accuse him of cheating on her. Lana’s recent romance with Bobby Lashley has flourished so there will surely be a blow off between the two alpha males this week.
