Raw Five-Point Preview: November 11, 2013
On Sunday, Triple H tweeted, "@KaneWWE: As discussed, we will be watching #WWE #RAW." What was "discussed" between the two parties? The Authority is on vacation, but from where are they watching? And just who's in charge tonight? While the demon may toe the line for Triple H, however, another fiend is also on the loose as Bray Wyatt’s merciless attacks spill over into their third week. What does this tonight’s Raw hold in store for all the key players, including Wyatt and the new No. 1 contender, Big Show? Here are a few theories.
The Wyatt Family has taken to making an example of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan in recent weeks, battering the two former WWE Champions across both Raw and SmackDown. Some intermittent teamwork between the old rivals has kept Bray Wyatt and his clan at bay, but perhaps something stronger will be needed to drive the backwoods fiends back. Might we see a full-fledged coalition formed on Raw this week?
John Cena has already backed up his World Heavyweight Championship victory at WWE Hell in a Cell with several more wins, including a grueling title defense against Damien Sandow. But with not one but two Superstars circling The Champ’s prize – Sandow himself and former champion Alberto Del Rio – can the Cenation leader, still recovering from surgery, rise above a pair of rabid dogs hell-bent on taking his gold?
Choose The Deadman’s greatest foe
“WWE 2K14”-mania is in full swing, and the WWE Universe has yet another chance to peep a preview of the hottest game in the land. This week, you get to vote on who The Undertaker’s greatest WrestleMania opponent was, and the results will be broadcast live on Monday’s Raw along with a simulation of the classic confrontation you select. Vote here now!
Be careful what you wish for
Big Show made some power moves that got him his job back last week, and was promptly rewarded with the beating of a lifetime courtesy of Randy Orton and The Shield. Granted, he also got the WWE Title Match against Randy Orton he wanted, but it certainly seems like The Authority’s going to do everything they can to stop him from even making it to Survivor Series. With The World’s Largest Bullseye plastered across the giant’s back, what’s in store for the No. 1 contender come Monday?
The Authority on vacation
Most people compare their bosses to Satan as it is, but now the WWE locker room has to contend with Kane as a bona fide Authority figure. As Triple H’s latest recruit within his burgeoning power structure, The Big Red Monster has taken up residence as WWE’s Director of Operations, though his duties, responsibilities, and more importantly, his powers, remain unclear. And with The Authority on vacation, exactly how Kane comes into play is yet to be seen. However, it stands to reason that all of those questions will be answered very, very soon, and the suit-and-tie Kane may prove to be the most devious incarnation of the former World Champion the WWE Universe has ever seen. Tune into Raw tonight at 8/7 CT to see what goes down while The Authority is away.
