WWE Monday Night Raw January 28, 2013: Top 5 Questions Left Unanswered

0 of 6

    The first Monday Night Raw after Royal Rumble was an eventful night that featured the return of Raw Roulette as well as Brock Lesnar.

    With so much aftermath following Royal Rumble, WWE fans are once again left with questions unanswered.

    As I do every Monday night (and now after pay-per-views), here are the top five questions left unanswered after Raw.

Why Was Ryback Involved in a “Make Me Laugh” Segment?

1 of 6

    As part of Raw Roulette, Ryback took part in a “make me laugh” challenge with the Prime Time Players.

    Needless to say, Ryback ended up beating the whistles out of Darren Young and Titus O’Neil.

    But was this the best use of Ryback the night after being the runner-up in the Royal Rumble match?

    No! No! No!

    Hopefully, WWE has big plans for Ryback. After being unsuccessful time and time again against CM Punk for the WWE title, Ryback does not deserve to fall down the card.

    Especially since he was the runner-up in the Rumble match. Traditionally, that meant Ryback would challenge for one of the World titles.

Will Bo Dallas Be the Next Intercontinental Champion?

    Bo Dallas is the most recent NXT Superstar to be promoted to the main roster as a result of a tournament held at the Royal Rumble Fan Fest.

    During the Rumble match, Dallas eliminated Wade Barrett, who would return moments later to return the favor.

    Monday night on Raw, Wade Barrett had the opportunity to choose his opponent and picked Bo Dallas. Unfortunately for Barrett, Dallas had his number once again and defeated the intercontinental champion in a non-title match.

    Could Bo Dallas be the next intercontinental champion?

    While it may make Wade Barrett look weak to lose to Dallas, it could be a way to push Barrett to the main-event level.

    The WWE title picture is a bit crowded with CM Punk, The Rock and John Cena. However, a Wade Barrett-Alberto Del Rio feud would be enticing.

Who Is The Shield Feuding With?

    The Shield showed up once again on Raw to attack Royal Rumble winner John Cena and then Sheamus and Ryback.

    Who exactly is The Shield feuding with? They were helping CM Punk hold his title by attacking Ryback during nearly every match they had.

    Why did they attack John Cena on Raw? They didn’t even show up during the Rumble match.

    If they thought Cena winning the Rumble was unjust, they could have done something about it at Royal Rumble.

    We could be seeing the start of a WrestleMania feud involving The Shield against Sheamus, Ryback and possibly Randy Orton. However, Orton was not involved in the segment on Raw.

Will Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler Renew Their Rivalry?

4 of 6

    Chris Jericho returned at the Royal Rumble as the surprise No. 2 entrant to open the match with his old nemesis, Dolph Ziggler.

    Will the two Superstars renew their feud?

    On Raw, Jericho returned and was forced to team with Ziggler against Team Hell No in a dysfunctional team match.

    While Jericho and Ziggler would provide some great matches, both would benefit from feuding with other Superstars.

    Ziggler needs to enter the main-event picture and wouldn’t gain anything more by feuding with Jericho again.

    Chris Jericho did a great job of putting over Ziggler last time they met, so he should do the same with another Superstar.

    Perhaps Ryback?

Are We Seeing the End of Team Hell No?

5 of 6

    During Raw’s dysfunctional tag team match, we saw more dysfunction than usual from Kane and Daniel Bryan.

    Could this be the beginning of the end for Team Hell No?

    At the Royal Rumble, Daniel Bryan eliminated Kane, who then assisted in eliminating Daniel Bryan.

    While the team must split at some point, WWE will take advantage of their comedy and entertainment act by keeping them together for as long as they can.

    However, as we get closer and closer to WrestleMania, one must wonder if they will still be partners or opponents come April.


6 of 6

    In addition to the topics discussed, The Rock and CM Punk agreed to a rematch at Elimination Chamber.

    Will their match be inside a chamber?


    Will Brock Lesnar’s return lead to another predictable WrestleMania match (against Triple H)?

    The list of unanswered questions can go on for a long time. However, I will now give you the opportunity to attempt to answer these questions and provide some of your own.
