1. Bow down to The King
Although Daniel Bryan got what he wanted from WWE COO Triple H, it’s clear it’s not going to be an easy journey for him to get to the WWE World Heavyweight Title Match at WrestleMania. On SmackDown, The Game vowed to deal with Bryan this week on Raw. Will Triple H enlist others to do his bidding, or will he handle matters himself?
2. Big Red Reprisal?
While Triple H has Bryan in his sights, the Director of Operations has some unresolved issues with The Shield. On SmackDown, the trio defied orders to help Kane in his losing battle with Big Show. The chaotic night left The Big Red Monster seething. Will The Shield face repercussions on Raw?
3. Cenation leader's next move?
Bray Wyatt’s cryptic words have done little to rattle John Cena. While Bray may speak in riddles, Cena has been more direct: "Success in this company is earned. And change will come and it will go through me,” he said on the March 3 edition of Raw. With Cena confirmed to be at this Monday’s Raw, what will unfold next in their war of words before their collision at WrestleMania?
4. Who's next for The Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal?
As WrestleMania approaches, additional Superstars continue to be named for the high-profile Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. With the huge opportunity to compete on The Grandest Stage of Them All, who will make the next move to impress in hopes of getting a bid?
5. A new strategy for The Viper & The Animal?
The hunt for WWE’s prized possession could change drastically come The Show of Shows. If Bryan can get past Triple H, he’ll square off with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton and Batista in a Triple Threat Match. Could The Viper or The Animal look to make a preemptive strike to let the so-called “B+ player” know what he could be up against?
