Welcome to the Bleacher Report live WWE Monday Night Raw coverage for September 2. Night of Champions is only two weeks away, and all the pieces are starting to fit together for the upcoming pay-per-view.
Last week's show was all about people being dealt beatings. CM Punk took a brutal series of shots from a kendo stick, thanks to Paul Heyman and Daniel Bryan, and was mercilessly attacked by The Shield in the closing moments of the show.
This week's show is likely to feature both Bryan and Punk looking for revenge, but they are not the only story to care about on Raw.
Last week featured AJ Lee delivering a scathing promo to the bulk of the Divas division, more specifically the girls of Total Divas, in which she proceeded to run them down as models and not real wrestlers. Of all the women at ringside, this comment had to have dug the deepest with Natalya Neidhart.
We also have the ongoing feud between Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow, the storyline between Triple H and Big Show, RVD and Alberto Del Rio's world title feud, and Fandango's feud with The Miz.
Who will step up to challenge AJ's claim against the Divas division?
How will CM Punk get his revenge against Paul Heyman?
Will being outnumbered at every turn stop Daniel Bryan from winning the WWE title?
What will Triple H do to humiliate Big Show tonight?
And lastly, will Justin Gabriel call Jojo back?
Make sure to bookmark this page and come back on Monday at the start of WWE Raw for answers to all these questions (except that last one, because nobody cares) and live coverage of all the action!
On a side note, it is my true hope that you imagine those questions and that final paragraph being read aloud by Frank Welker in his voiceover role from Super Friends. Thanks for reading, and follow me on Twitter @BR_Doctor.
